The best thing about this place is its location. It is beside a beach, though there are signs warning of crocodile risk on the beach, still good for a stroll around. The rooms are clean, the mosquito-proof mesh on the windows could be improved.
Stayed here for 1 night in October as we were transiting from the Andamans back to Dubai. The hotel is about an hour away from the airport and ferry terminal. It's situated on a beach that is not so great - brown sand, not very clear water.
The rooms were quite old. Bedding had some stains on it. The bathroom was also poor. There was a shower that had a bucket and pail in it. Not sure what that's about, but it wasn't very clean and didn't have much hot water.
The grounds are a bit unkempt - uncut grass, etc. The pool looked like it was not cleaned in awhile.
Not sure what the other hotels in Port Blair are like, so I can't really make a comparison however, we were extremely uncomfortable here and excited to leave.
After a long marriage celebration, we went on honeymoon journey to Andaman using Portblair for entry and exit while majority of the stay was in Havelock Island. We stayed for one night on 21st feb 2018 as we were tired by our marriage rituals and were recharged after entering this hotel premises. The property location, view, the dinner was excellent and so delicious that we cannot forget. Before check out we also went out to beach and its so beautiful that we cannot forget. thank you sea princess for making our honeymoon nostalgic.
It took 45 mins approx. to reach here from airport as it is far away from main Portblair city but it is best.
Stayed there in Feb 2018. Best part is the location and view. Quite place on a beautiful beach. Half hour drive from city. Drawbacks. The place seems to not have been kept up by management. Needs a facelift. Staff was very helpful. Another negative was that you are not allowed to go to the sea due to risk of crocodiles.
Awesome! Maybe even this is not the word to describe this property. Its beyond words, felt like heaven. Believe me or not Sea Princess is one of the best properties you could find in the South Andaman. Their rooms arent that huge, very much average (not at all bad) but the view is breathtaking.
I could see the swimming pool right outside my room and the best part is the beach just ahead of the pool. Best part of my entire trip to Andaman. There were hammocks in the property in front of the beach. The restaurant is the best part located exactly in front of the beach with an amazing view.
Andaman being an island I highly doubted the taste of food thats going to be served, but to my shock the food served at Sea Princess was Perfect! (yumm and good quality). Sea Princess is beautifully located and thats the best part of the property. Not to forget the indeed helpful staff. My mother is a big fan of coconuts and to mention the staff at the resort would get coconuts for mom every day during our stay with them (really sweet of them). They have a terrace on the left of the property and it has an amazing view of the sea right in front. Pictures attached.
However, the beach in front of the resort is said to have crocodiles (I never saw one) and we are advised not to go in the waters. Although, the view is really beautiful.
Note: It is at the extreme corner of the Andaman Islands, quite far from the main city. Almost 20kms drive from the Airport. However, you can book a government cab from the Airport itself at reasonable rates.
