Kalapani Beach Resort
Ramnagar, Neil Island
About the hotel
Kalapani is probably the biggest backpackers melting pot on Neil island. Here you’ll meet travelers from all over the world exchanging stories and hanging out in their hammocks all day.
The resort offers three types of accommodation: first are the decent but rather small bamboo huts with a concrete bottom and common bathroom. They also have bamboo cottages and concrete rooms and both with an attached bathroom. Some huts are colorfully painted in different patterns and images as the owners let the guest to express their creativity on the once white walls.
The place is run by a young local couple, who started the business three years ago and is expanding with each season. Camping is possible on their property if you bring your own tent.
Kalapani has a small restaurant serving Indian and international dishes with nonalcoholic beverages. If interested they offer different activities; from snorkeling to jungle treks, but these are bit pricier compared to other nearby resorts. The beach is around 100 meters away, but if you fancy a swim head toward beach No. 3, which is just a short walk away.
