We have been travelling a lot in Asia and stayed in excellent locations. We knew Andaman from reviews and finally booked it for xmas & new year by recommendation of travel agency.
The trip was better than expected mainly due to three reasons:
1) focus on kids - the resort seems to focus on kids with the services and setting. Our 6 year old son loved every minute there, and the slide was absolutely the best for him. Anyone in SPG program (Starwood Preferred Guest) could buy for the kid a 14€ daily fixed fee meal & drink pass.
2) Jala restaurant - top notch fish food prepared exactly as you wish in an excellent sandy beach restautant. My wife and I loved this place.
3 staff - everybody were friendly and responded to all requests, typically even proactively. We expected good level, but received better.
Other good things are of course the location, the beach, water sports facilities, jungle, weather in Dec/Jan, price level of food/services and the gym, which must have been recently refreshed as it was so good.
The only item to improve was the room itself. We staid in a Suite in South Wing, which was not yet renovated and it's price vs quality was not well balanced. The room was spacious for sure and with nice furnishment but it was obiviously needing renovation. It could have been taken into account in the price.
All in all, I would strongly recommend this for people with kids or if you are into staying close to jungle and its interesting inhabitants.
