DE FORET resort is not just a vacation spot, it is an experience that will last a lifetime. We at De Foret resort live by the philosophy of bringing our guests close to Mother Nature. Andaman is a place that can be rightly termed as the very core of nature. It is filled with the picturesque beauty of sea and sand, sun and horizon, wood and mangroves, birds and turtles, caves and volcanoes, and so much more. If Andaman is the core of nature, then undoubtedly, De Foret is the core of this enchanting Island. From the check-in till the check-out the guests are subject to luxury and comfort. Pad through the wooden anteroom building without slippers and connect yourself to nature. Calm your tired body into the nerve soothing spa sessions. Enjoy the sumptuous and exotic cuisine at our Bar & Restaurant. With the Covid situation, health and hygiene are our top priority. Our resort follows all the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO), and healthcare protocols directed by the state and central government.

I've been meaning to write this review for over 2 months now, since our visit to this magical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. We stayed at the Deforet with our two kids, 10 and 17 and our parents (4 senior citizens) for two weeks and had a wonderful time. As this was just past the tourist season and heading into the monsoons, the place was peacefully empty and crowd free. We had the place almost entirely to ourselves. While we did encounter a few thunderstorms, these usually only lasted a short while. The property is well maintained. The rooms are very spacious and the decor is lovely. It is clear that lot of thought was given to the architectural design of the resort as well as the interior decor to blend with the lush tropical forest surroundings. Situated on the less crowded western side of the island, Deforet is a quick 10 minute drive to the breathtaking Radhanagar beach. For those who are looking to enjoy swimming in the ocean, the location so close to this beach is a huge advantage. The staff are extremely hospitable and friendly, and made an outstanding effort to make our stay a pleasant experience. A huge thanks to Shivani, Shilpa and Ruheena for their excellent service. I cannot thank enough the restaurant staff, Shrishti, Ashesh and Surendra, who met us every day with smiles and warmth. The chefs suggested and made us items that were not on the menu. The Nepali momos and Thupka were delicious, as were the Tandoori chicken and kebabs. A special thanks to Ruheena for organizing a birthday celebration dinner for our kids. We were impressed and touched by the level of care and thoughtfulness that went into helping us celebrate our family milestones. We will cherish these memories forever. For those of you looking for a place to unplug from the internet, relax and recharge, and disconnect from your hectic lives, Deforet is the perfect getaway. A few pointers: 1. Rent a car for the duration of your stay so you can have access to other parts of the island. This is the quieter part of Havelock, and cabs or autos are not available. 2. Plan to eat dinner at the Deforet restaurant, as there are not a lot of restaurants around this part of the island. 3. Work with the restaurant staff and let them know what you would like for your meals well in advance to help them plan and prepare. 4. Bring flashlights as the paths from the rooms to the main restaurant and lobby areas are not brightly lit in the evenings 5. Bring insect repellents as there are mosquitos. It is a tropical island after all! 6. Bring your bathing suits, sunscreen, shades and flip flops for the beach

One would expect something special when paying such a higher price when many other alternatives are available at a reduced rate. However, the location is quite poor. You may face a lot of trouble in getting timely transportation. There is absolutely nowhere one can go in the evening. There is practically not a single restaurant in the vicinity, so you are completely dependent on the resort's kitchen which is again overpriced. Menu options are quite limited. There were some insects too. There is no gym. Swimming pool is right at the centre and one does not feel comfortable going there with the staff watching you continuously. Electricity supply is erratic and infrequent.

Highly recommended.. Starting from check in , Rubéena and Shilpa welcomed us with a broad smile and drinks. Food was homely and tasty and the services rendered by Ashes Shristi were amazing. Rooms were big , clean and well theme based lit, although a bit dim but cosy. Pool was clean and nice. Last bit not least, Shivani , operations manager was always on toes to make our stay memorable. A loud shout out for team De Foret. Thank you!!

Urmila, Asha, Lilam, Surendar and the staff at the restaurant, specially the lady was fantastic and incredibly kind. There warmth and caring nature largely improved my experience. They were the strongest variable for the hotel (service). The rooms were fantastic too and the room service was great. The negatives were that the music was way too loud and unnecessary at times. Furthermore, the food standard was mediocre. We often found that a lot of items on the menu weren’t there and that they often got the wrong orders. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and I would like to go again and I would also recommend this resort to others.
