    I am in search of a 5 star hotels in Port Blair and would like to find a good hotel which provides some good views.

    I am not too sure about places to eat in Port Blair so my hopes lay on a 5 star which would provide good food options at their in-house restaurant.

    Please also provide the tariff charges with the hotel suggestions.
