“Short, enjoyable stay, good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed one day at Fortune Resort when our flight out of Port Blair got cancelled last minute, and we did not want to go back to the hotel we had stayed in for the previous two days (Sinclairs Bay View - please read my review of the hotel to understand why).

The hotel is slightly far from the central market area, and finding an auto outside is tough. But the location is great, right on the sea front. Just a road separates the hotel from the waterfront.

The reception staff was helpful, quick check in. Because of an ongoing offsite visit of some company, and many guests checking in due to a flight cancellation, we took whatever room was available.

Room was small, but clean, although the bathroom sorely disappointed. It was tiny, and paint was peeling off the walls, the bathroom fittings old.

Good food made up for that. We ordered in room a chicken club sandwich, which was at par with club sandwiches served at top quality restaurants. We had ordered a basic Chicken Fried Rice and Chilly Chicken at the restaurant for dinner (and although it took more than half an hour to bring the food to our table) the food was really good and we left the lovely restaurant overlooking the sea quite happy.

Do want to mention that our room did not have a king/queen bed, but two twin beds joined together. By the time we realised it was too late in the evening and we were exhausted and has a 6am flight. But we would have moved into another room immediately had we intended to stay in the hotel longer. We should have been told about the twin beds atleast during check in.

We have stayed at Sinclair Bay View and Fortune Resort, during the same trip to Port Blair, and recommend Fortune over Sinclairs for the overall experience.

Room Tip: Book in advance, select a sea facing first floor room.

Awesome hotel, loveliest location, classy furnishing and simply, a royal feeling when you stay there. You will love Andamans more if you are in this beauty from ITC.

Although, prices are a bit high, but who cares that whnn you are getting a sea side luxurious room, with classy room service, extremely friendly hospitality, and a laaaaaarge variety of Food and Drink...

The rooms are quite cozy, with all the amenities you would require... Just one thing which odds out, the washrooms are quite antique, may be as the hotel is very old and only minor modifications have been done. Yet, its maintained highly and you feel special...

There are facilities like Swimming pools, Bar, Movie Room, etc. You will even love to eat as the restaurant is Sea facing with a breezy environment...

Just lovely, Go for it for sure...

If you prefer to stay in a hotel with a scenic view,then you would not get a better hotel than fortune in Portblair. Hotel has best scenic views .Food in restaurant is also good.

Rooms may not be that great, its a pretty old hotel,so cannot expect much at rooms.

Initial we got a room which was not good and on request we shifted to another room in 1st which was good and had a good view from balcony.

Room Tip: First rooms were better.

This hotel has the best sea facing rooms with a view. It has the view which is printed on the Twenty Rupee note. The staff is very courteous and helpful.
Rooms are very comfortable except that the bathrooms could have been a bit bigger. Food and beverage services are good and the view from the Bar and the restaurant is amazing, Given that the hotel is almost 30 years old, very well maintained and has its own charm.

The stay was enjoyable.

Room Tip: Port Blair being an island does not have beach resorts as people would expect, Most of the hotels ha...

I was in Port Blair for over a week so I had an alternative accommodation to the Rs 6000 i spent the first night here. I however headed here for dinners and drinks as the ambiance is fantastic and the view from the restaurant also mesmerized the guests i took there. The place has a little history that everyone should know. The stay overall was good but the food was what stood out. fortunately the time when we stayed at the resort there was a group of friends of the same age as us so the resort staff also happened to arrange trips for us together. please do go to the restaurant in time to avoid being on the wait list.

Room Tip: call in advance to get the room right specially if your there with your better half
