Coral Reef Resort – an idyllic stay in Havelock Island
Coral Reef Resort, Havelock Island
Ever since I have returned from the Andamans, I was eager to share my experience with you guys. Replying to your queries over DMs I thought of answering everything about the trip here. For all those curious souls, I have listed down a complete travel guide on Havelock Island here.
Havelock Island is a perfect getaway for honeymooners, backpackers and even families. The island caters to all kinds of travellers. After researching a few places, we finally zeroed down on Coral Reef Resort for our stay.
Coral Reef Resort is located a few kms away from the main Jetty at Vijaynagar beach and is one of the more popular stay options in Havelock. Situated on the main road, it is easy to find and quite known among the cabbies which makes pick up and drop hassle free. The resort has a wide selection of over 20 luxurious rooms including suites, deluxe and premium category to suit travellers of all kinds. Irrespective of the choice of room, every room offers the comfort of a five-star resort. The resort has a gorgeous lobby with wooden décor complimented by a small library and seating area. The view of the aqua blue pool surrounded by tall palm trees and beautiful wooden cottages seems like the cover page of an international travel resort.
The rooms were a beautiful combination of luxury and comfortable stay. Think of wooden upholstery, comfy quilts on a king size bed overlooking the balcony that offers a view of the pool and the lush green lawn. Marbled bathrooms with walk in shower equipped with modern amenities make it a comfortable stay. And not to forget the mini refrigerator stocked with snacks for a quick midnight binge.
The complimentary breakfast served at the Black Lemon (in house restaurant) was delicious to say the least. From among the English & Indian breakfast choices, Bread toast, sausages, choice of eggs, freshly squeezed juice, fruits, Dosa, Poha, Wada were some of the options for a great start in the morning.
They also arrange candle light dinners & live screening of sports right by the pool under the starry night.
You can take a dive into the beautiful serene pool and just laze around or you could simply opt for a spa session after a long day of exploring. For all those keen to maintain their physical schedule while you travel, the Fitness club at the resort is equipped with modern gym equipment. But the gem of this beautiful resort is the beach that is easily accessible from the resort.
The staff at the resort were courteous and helpful. Point in case: due to lack of connectivity, the staff helped to coordinate with our cabbie ensuring we stuck to our schedule and also made it to the ferries on time. On the last day when we had to check out prior to breakfast, the staff was generous enough to pack breakfast for our journey. It is instances such as these that add value to the overall experience.
Our stay at Coral Reef resort was not only hassle free but a memorable one. A great choice for honeymooners or a family. We had the most wonderful days in Havelock and shall cherish this trip for a lifetime.
TWS recommends to book your stay well in advance and confirm beforehand since lack of connectivity may delay reservation emails. It is advisable to call and check on your confirmation.
