Vijay Nagar (No. 5), Havelock Island
About the hotel
One of the biggest resorts on the island, the government-run Dolphin Resort is located on what is probably the perfect spot on Beach No. 5. With palm trees and manicured lawns, sunbeds and shades, this enormous resort is one of those rare ones that can actually have bungalows close to the beach.
They offer three categories of rooms, the best being the newer super deluxe bungalows - huge air conditioned rooms with a TV, a spacious bathroom and hot water. The Deluxe rooms are similar but smaller, and a great pick for the price. The Semi-Deluxe ones are the smallest with joint twin bungalows that share a balcony with a generous sit-out. The resort organises fishing, snorkelling, boat trips and arranges scuba diving with dive centres.
There is an Indian restaurant which serves a reasonably priced buffet for lunch and dinner, which is also available for outside guests. However, the only way to book a stay at the Dolphin Resort is through the Andaman Tourism office in Port Blair at least 2 months in advance with a 25% deposit payment. If you prefer concrete buildings and don’t mind the extra effort for booking, this resort undoubtedly offers the best value for money on the island.
