Wild Orchid food and restaurant waiters service was excellent. The route to beach is not so good. It is having street dogs at the end and beach is not to good. So avoid going to beach. Hotel reception help us to take bike on rent for 2 days. They have also provided vehicle from jetty to hotel and return to... More

This property is located on the beach number 5 which is a very calm and quiet beach. The hotel is very near to the jetty and just 1.5 Kilometers from the market. Eventhough the hotel is next to beach, the rooms do not have a sea view which is blocked by trees. This hotel perhaps has the best restaurant on... More

Located on Vijay nagar beach and has private bamboo cottages for stay. I could hear scary sound of lizard and other sea animals at night. No Intercom and hence do not expect any kind of room service. Breakfast never starts on time even though they know that tourists have to leave early morning.

Fabulous Food. Probably the only good thing. Very very ordinary service by the house keeping and reception staff. We needed to ask for everything more than 3 times. The fittings and fixtures in the room and loo are just put without any thinking. The hotel lacks care.

When I entered I thought its a small nice hotel. They have attempted to give a relaxing feel with hammocks outside room and lots of greenery around but the customer service is really bad. 1. They insist on taking other services from the ventors they have tie ups with and then don't take any onus. We rented an Activa (2-wheeler)... More

Had gone for a holiday to Havelock Island in Dec 2014. I had booked Wild Orchid at Havelock in October 2014 due to the peak season rush. Without delving into details I would just list the pros and cons of the resort, for people going to Havelock. Pros: 1. Rooms are decent. Stayed in the Style rooms which are neat.... More

As the name suggest experience was really wild. Rooms, service, ambience and hospitality were notches lower than expected. Staff (except couple of them) exhibited an attitude of indifference and were not cooperative. The adjacent garden to room was not well maintained and left wild and uncleaned. The rooms were not so clean. Wood-dust was falling over the bed which were... More

Stayed here for about 4 days in Feb 2015. The hotel arranged pickup and drop from the jetty. This is a budget hotel and hence it offers excellent value for money. They own the neighboring Andaman Bubbles and Cicada resort on Havelock island. Location: The check-in & check-out process was really smooth. It is located near restaurants and a convenience... More

Stayed for two days. Good rooms with nice service. Walking distance from nearby beach. Only problem may be the restaurant does not offer too many Indian delicacies. Staywise good and comfortable. One problem can be the distance from other restaurants and shops. However enough bikes and cars are available on hire
