About Blue Planet
Long island is a delightful, pristine island, which is quite off the beaten track. This is one of the small villages within the islands with beautiful beaches and plenty of trekking opportunities.
When Iftekar and Hilary (founders of blue planet) discovered it, they decided to set base there and since then long island has been home to the only resort there – Blue planet.
Painted arrows on a cemented ground lead you to the island and around. The old Padauk tree marks the entrance. This is an eco friendly resort. The cottages are simple and made with bamboo, the sitting area is earth quake resistant and made from old plastic and glass bottles.
The restaurant is simple and has a small menu, food is cooked fresh on order. The coffee and pancakes are a must have.
Blue planet provides 2 types of accommodations – the tree house and the jungle camp. The tree houses are small cottages (both with and without attached bathrooms are available). The jungle camps are a later addition. These are larger, pricier and are for those who enjoy more privacy.
A beach perfect for snorkeling is 5 minutes away. Blue planet also offers scuba diving certificate courses. These are by experts and if we were to say, better than many dive centers we have dived at in Havelock.
Go to blue planet to experience nature in its pure form. Remember this is not the place for luxury or fancy amenities.
