This resort has beautiful huts alongside each other and is a treat to the eyes. Bedroom and bathroom are good and clean. All basic amenities are provided and staff is sweet. However, while I stayed in June there wasnt a telephone in the room and there was no In room dining option. But the lady owner told me that the kitchen and the new reception area is under renovation and soon in room dining would be available. Its a very beautiful choice to stay at if you are traveling with your loved ones. At the end of the resort, you can sit down and relax at the beach. If you wish to do scuba, Ocean Tribe is also situated towards the end of the hotel which provide scuba and Snorkeling. A good option to chose when in Havelock with few positives and negatives.

We went there in mid March 2018. We booked it for 2.8k/night which I think is the least price for a good hotel like this on the Havelock island. The owner (an old lady) is strict but good in nature. I did not find any thing rude in her behavior as read in previous review before our trip. She is just a bit professional although she gave us 1 hour extra from the checkout time. Since our ferry was in the evening, she allowed us to kept our luggage at the reception for the day.

1) The best and the most beautiful part of this hotel is the mesmerizing blue water clean beach on it's backside. We were awestruck when we got a view of the beach. You can spend a full day on the benches near the beach just looking at it's beauty.

2) The hotel rooms were neat and clean. You don't need an AC there in the room. The TV is working fine.

3) The surrounding inside the resort full of coconut trees.

4) You can easily rent a bike/scooty near the resort at a distance of 100 meters. Although bikes are less available in the shop, you can find scooty in abundance.

5) If you looking for scuba diving, many scuba schools are nearby. But remember, you have to booking the diving slot 1 day in advance from the govt Union office near Havelock jetty. They will assign you a school near your resort for the next day after payment.

6) The restaurants are nearby ranging from 100meters to 1 km. The main junction of Havelock island is about half km away. There you will find many restaurants.


1) I don't think any cons but one thing they should improve is the availability of pure drinking water. We relied upon packaged drinking water from shops.

2) They can make proper lighting arrangements along the beach for night.

Overall, we had a great stay. I will recommend this hotel for families and couples specially.

Visited havelock on 28-30 April 2018 and stayed at cross bill resort. We we were 2 friends and it was a girl trip. This was a very simple and good place to stay. Very safe . Prime area and close to all beaches. Easily got bikes too on hire. The rooms are clean and the owners are helpful.

Overall a good place to stay. Wouldn’t say budget come z we still paid 10k for 2 nights via make my trip.

We would definitely recommend it for families.

It is a good place to stay. You will njoy the beach side view.
But the only problem is these guys didnot setup any lights at the beach side. This makes us troublesome when we want to sit near the beach at night and chill out.
Resort food is ok ok but u can get better food outside also.
If you want a beach side stay with reasonable price then u can go with this.

Cross bill beach resort surprised us to say the least! The location is impeccable and the Vijaynagar beach that is steps away from the room, will blow you away!
You can spend your entire day on the beach, which barely has any people at most times, and it was one of the most romantic spots for us..
Right next to the Cross bill resort is the Ocean Tribe Scuba, who can provide you an amazing scuba experience.
Bike rentals are easily available and there are good restaurants about a kilometer away.
Will definitely go back :)
