Overall a good experience although the pictures give impression that it is situated by the beach, it is not. You will have to walk a couple of hundred meters. Hence a bit overpriced. But standard of the room was really good with clean bathrooms and hot water, AC, safe and fan. We stayed a family of 4 in a large room and that worked well. A real plus is The red snapper, the hotels resturant that serves very good food and have great staff. The owners and staff were very helpful and accomodating. The hotel is situatuated so that it is easy to walk to other resturants close by, take a rickshaw or rent a sccoter for longer trips.

This resort is 10-15 mins drive from the Jetty and is conveniently located. Kalapathar is the closest beach (5 kms) and Radha Nagar beach is about 17 kms. Very calm and quiet place. Staffs are well behaved and friendly. Rooms are neat, bathroom is very clean. Lunch is not served at Red Snapper (they have a nearby restaurant called Fat Martin for lunch). Red Snapper serves some great sea food for dinner, we loved the food. Breakfast is very basic. Overall a good experience. Recommended for families.

Stayed at Wild Orchid - Havelock for 7 days during my solo trip in the Andamans. When you're traveling solo, all the little things begin to matter more, and I found the stay at Wild Orchid to be extremely pleasant. The rooms are tidy, well done, and beautiful, while not going overboard with concrete and neon lights but maintaining the quaint nature you'd expect on the island. The food was good, and the staff had been extremely helpful - specifically Bhaskar, for always recommending the best food, being extremely helpful at all times, and a good conversationalist (something you look out for when you're traveling by yourself), and Sanjay for being really helpful at the bar.
During my next visit to Havelock, this is where I'll be staying, and I look forward to it. Thank you team Wild Orchid.

I understand that those who wish to stay away from the city's hustle and bustle can afford to do so. However, I did not enjoy my stay at this place for the following reasons:

1. There is no catering service inside the room, not even basic amenities like water. Guests need to step out of their rooms to arrange for these services from nearby restaurants. This was a big disappointment.

2. Most of the rooms suffer from waterlogging in the sewerage system.

3. The water pressure inside the washroom is very low.

4. A lot of areas inside the hotel have no light coverage it is tough to make it neat & clean for it's close to nature's idea. You will be shocked before entering the reception lobby by seeing the placard "Open your shoes".

Extremely disappointing to think that anyone would deem it fine to run a resort which is so run down without renovating / revamping the place. It’s like the rooms are in the middle of a junkyard with loads of junk like unused furniture, kitchen furniture etc lying around in the garden. The garden is badly maintained too & all the poor plants are either half dead / dying. There are so called ponds which are dirty & more like sewage ponds within the property.There is no access to the beach through the resort..you have to go outside & access it via the road. Just 5 mins though.
The front desk seems to be clueless about anything & everything. It was bearable as we’re experienced travellers, so after the first day, we knew how to get around & what to do & whom to ask. Excuses for not knowing about transportation, food, restaurants etc. when you’re in the hospitality business is not ok. We asked the front desk for an auto to go for dinner at ‘Something different’….we ended up paying Rs.450/- which is more than regular autos & were later told by ‘Someting different’ that they have pick up & drop facility for patrons. Even this basic information the front desk doesn’t have. On the day we were checking out, we’d asked for a cab to be arranged to the jetty. The cab guy took off leaving us stranded because he had to wait for 15 mins. The hotel staff, nor the front desk had a clue what to do, nor did they seem interested in doing anything until I started losing my patience. Even then they were making a half hearted attempt to do nothing. Finally in a panic, I called the auto driver who had helped us in our travels through the whole week ( a very good person who we found ) & he arranged for two autos to take us within 5 mins. Same thing that a ‘chain of hotels’ couldn’t manage to to.
The rooms were clean though basic, but did find one or two cockroaches. The room cleaning was done regularly & properly.
The only saving grace is the breakfast which was very good & the manager - Geoffrey who seemed to have quite a number of good suggestions about what to do on the island, which was useful & helpful.
I think you’ll need to firstly understand who are the type of customers you’ll want to cater to. Sorry for the realistic review, but you’ll really need to wake up & pull up your socks.

I had the most wonderful experience at the Wild Orchid Resort. The staff are superb, nothing is too much trouble and service is completed with a smile. The rooms are really beautiful and priced fairly. Hot water was available 24/7, the wifi was excellent and all really helped me. I had to move rooms a few times and the staff helped me with my luggage. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the rooms as well.

The location is excellent, surrounded by all of the Havelock eateries and dive shops. The resort's own restaurant Fat Martin has some of the best fresh food on the island, I would really recommend it.

Bhaskor particularly was excellent and responsive to any questions and issues that I was having. I would really recommend this hotel. As a solo female, I felt extremely safe and the staff went out of their way to ensure that.

We had been waiting to go to Wild Orchid for many years. We had a full two weeks there on the Andaman Islands. The room was nice and quite large, bathroom was adequate but could be updated but was fine. Breakfast was fine and staff and manager always courteous and helpful if needed. Water is provided in thermos type refillable bottles which we put in the fridge! The location was not on the beach but many places to go down to the beach if required nearby! Plenty of places near to walk. We found Wild Orchid restaurant a bit trendy for us, plus music was often very loud which seems to be an Andaman thing we noticed a lot of places. Our only complaint, nothing the hotel can do about it, was traffic noise. The hotel is set on a fairly busy road with traffic starting very early about 0530. We are not used to this so we're awake very early! We walked lots and visited the capital town, Dolphin resort bar and beach, ate mainly at the famous seafood restaurant!

First of all as mentioned it’s not a beach property. Rooms are Average not worth for more than 4K , so don’t book if it’s expensive. There are better hotels with direct beach access. There is no Indian cuisine available, there’s a bar . Complementary breakfast is not good at all, except toast there’s nothing, instead you can go out and explore cafés.

Dear Tourist53628138090, We're sorry that you did not find us value for money, our rates do increase in peak season (as do all the hotels on the islands). It is much cheaper to visit us outside of the xmas, new year's season. Please note that we serve a lot more that toast for complementary breakfast including Indian & healthy vegan options as well as eggs to order. Our tapas and cocktail bar NARRA is a gastronomic restaurant where we have young internationally trained chefs provided gourmet plates. You are correct, we do not serve your typical rice and dal, however we do have some dishes on the menu inspired by India along with Asia, South America,Europe

Place is okayish. Good even but not great.
Breakfast options are average. Staff however, is very courteous and helpful. Location of the hotel is very convenient. The jetty is barely 15 minutes away.
One of the rooms had a damp, musty smell to it. The water pressure in the bathroom was extremely low; almost non-existent.
The hotel management should look into upgrading the bathroom fixtures.
