Wandoor Cottage (A/c)
We had gone to Wandoor Village on a family Holiday, as part of a larger Andaman Holiday Package. The Anugama Resort was where we stayed at Wandoor. A very friendly front office, although the Telephone Number provided on the Travel Guru Booking Intimation was very difficult to get through. The style of management gives the place a very friendly and homely touch, without detracting from professionalism. They were also very flexible about my request for late check out (they could, because they had the room free, they explained). The landscaping is good - there was a small pond outside our room, in which lotus flowers bloomed in the morning. The resort is next to a paddy field that got flooded during the Tsunami (ie, it has the appearance of being next to a lake). The beach itself is 5 km away from the Resort, and one may either walk, cycle or go by autorickshaw, if one does not have a car/jeep. The Resort is about 30 km from Port Blair. In January 2014, a rickety black-and-Yellow taxi charged us Rs 800 each way from/to Port Blair. Good AC cabs may charge higher. The Resort has 3 bicycles which they offer to residents. Hopefully, they will increase the number of bicycles, since we found it very practical. To get about, autorickshaws can also be hired, either by waving down a passing rickshaw (which we found to be very difficult), or by calling for one (through the hotel staff). Cater for about 15-30 minutes delay for the autorickshaw to show up. In the tarrif plan offered to us, a basic Breakfast (1 egg, 4 toasts with butter & jam, coffee/tea) was included. The Restaurant has an Indian Menu. Food was tasty. We found the Rooms to be very comfortable. The rooms are concrete structures on stilts, with aluminium roofs, and a false roof over the bedroom area to keep out the heat. The windows have curtains of bamboo strips - which is OK, but slightly cumbersome. They are in the process of stringing up additional curtains and/or opaque films over part of the windows. One of the foreign tourists was found expressing pleasant surprise that the owner speaks excellent German. Overall, a good stay. We enjoyed it.
Good people, Excellent service. Calm location, simple living, location and facilities were as described and shown in the website. The chef (Srikumar) and his wife were very good people and prepared good vegetarian food for us. I must especially mention Rakesh and Deepak. Both were guiding us well during the trip. They were very supportive and friendly. They connected us with the right people, helped us with a pick up and drop service, and very respectfully fulfilled our needs. We stayed for 3 nights between 25th and 28th May 2014. And again, stayed for a night on 30th May 2014. IN between, we went to Neil Island. All in all, an interesting stay. Will go and stay again :-)! Please note that the resort is more value for money and we do not expect 5-star comforts. And is a quiet place away from the city far from the maddening crowds. If you like such a location, then this is the place for you.

The rooms were below average. The toilets were not clean. The flush was not working. We stayed for five days and management did not bother to fix the flush and other reports. Rooms were not clean either. The manager told us incorrectly about the places we can visit. E.g. he told us that Jolly Buoy Island is closed for five days while that was not the case and we could go and enjoy it. Extremely poor.
Pretty far away place from Portblair. Not recommended if staying for the night is your purpose. Travelling from the city is far and will cost you more. The good thing about the place is its far from the crowd. If you want to relax it would be great else a pain. Basic amenities are itself mediocre. Be it WiFi, hot water and or a decent breakfast menu. Still the food cooked was good in taste.
Awesome experience, friendly manager and he is very helpful. Overall experience is great. The main thing is that it's very close to nature. Nearest beach distance around 4 km. Local transport is not available every time so before going to beach please confirm your transportation
The location is very nice, off the beaten path. Extremely friendly staff. Excellent food and ambience. Homely environment, doesn't feel like a commercial establishment at all (you'll have a good time if you set your expectations accordingly). Ideal way to wind down and conclude your vacation after the hustle and bustle of Port Blair and Havelock Island. Very good value for money. Deducting one star because the facilities could do with some improvement (mainly groundskeeping, bathroom fixtures).
This charming jungle resort provides simple accommodation surrounded by tropical greenery. Guests can enjoy strolls in the garden, go snorkelling or diving. Resort Anugama sits right next to a lake. Beautiful views of the garden can be enjoyed from all cottages. Bright and airy, the cottages are fitted with a fan and ventilated roofs. All are equipped with mosquito nets and a closet. A comfortable seating area and en suite bathroom are included. The resort is a mere 2 km from Jolly Buoy Island and Wandoor Beach. Port Blair Airport is 26 km away. The restaurant serves Indian and continental cuisine. Staff are extremely friendly and Deepak resort in charge is extremely helpful and the best host I can say
