We spent almost 4 days in this hotel. The ambience is good.. Right from the reception to their individual cottages. The hammocks , the chairs , the thatched huts give a great feeling.. The breakfast served is also good. Only thing is that it should have variety. Same applies for their Red Snapper Restaurant. For a vegetarian there are minimal... More

We were staying nearby at Silver Sand and desperate to find a clean, professional hotel. Benny, the GM was very helpful and showed us a very nice, clean room at Rs. 6,000/nt. vs, Rs. 10,000/nt. at Silver Sand for a horrible room. However we managed to get into a Deluxe Room at next door Dolphin for Rs 1,500/nt. so did... More

A perfect place for Honeymoon. Good and clean rooms. But yes, you may find a lizard in room, frogs, chameleon outside the rooms.....So guys who are really scared of these things, avoid this hotel. But still I would recommend this hotel as it is a very nice place to be. This hotel has a very beautiful beach behind it. The... More

Read every possible review online and except for the best resort on the island - "Barefoot at Havelock" didnt find any resort that had more positive reviews than negative. I finally booked this resort. Did feel it was over priced but I attributed that to the holiday season. The... More

I visited Havelock Islands and stayed at Wild Orchid with my family in the first week of January. It is a very nice property, close to a great, clean and sparsely populated beach. Clean rooms, good food and a great bunch of friendly helpful staff. Really nice people, who listen to you and try to help in any way that... More

We had a horrible time in Havelock, and we are really still wondering what all the fuss is about?? Part of it is because of the island itself, and the other is simply because of the accomodations. We went to the Wild Orchid, who arranged for us a combination of Wild Orchid, Emerald Gecko and the infamous number 11 room... More

Dear Sophia, Hope you are well, Firstly I would like to thank you for your feedback. I particularly remember your situation as I was the person who dealt with you and your husband. You came to us in desperation to be taken out of another resort due to the bad service and accommodation received there. We looked through our inventory... More

Hubby & I stayed here for 3 nights for our honeymoon back in February 2009, at that time there were no Tripadvisor review for Wild Orchid and we took the risk of booking in this property as we wanted to go to an exotic Havelock Island.
