    I have joined the forum, as I would like to get an idea of what kind of hotels are available in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, or more like what options I have for a good and safe hotel.

    I do not have a minimum or maximum cost yet. It would only be decided once I know what hotel options are available.

    My main concern is connectivity of the internet. I would need to check some important emails at night, so instead of using roaming it would be better to have WiFi connection.

    Are most of the hotels located nearby each other, or are they quite a distance from each other?

    Hi there, welcome to the forum!

    So first of all, only a few islands in the Andaman and Nicobar islands can be stayed at overnight. Some islands can only be visited during the day. So as a consequence, only these islands which are permitted for overnight stays have hotels. These are the following:
    • Port Blair, South Andaman Island, Middle Andaman Island and Little Andaman Island (except the tribal reserve), Neil Island, Havelock Island, Long Island, Diglipur, Baratang and North Passage.
    Only the islands of Port Blair and Havelock Island have internet connectivity. All other islands don't have internet connections. So if you do need the internet, then consider these islands for staying and visiting the other islands during day time only. I'm going to list the hotels in these islands with internet connection.

The hotel has about 22 rooms, all equipped with modern amenities. They have their own restaurant serving local and international cuisines to guests. They are also one of the few hotels offering free WiFi to guests. However, even though they do have internet connectivity, the location is still not an assurance of a good signal.

    In Port Blair, hotels are located at a close distance with each other. In Havelock Island, hotels are further at each other but there are several hotels in each beach. For all the other islands, hotels are quite few and in some, you really cannot call them hotels. They're more like specialty lodgings or guest houses.

    I hope I answered your query. Let me know if this isn't quite the answer you're looking for. Enjoy your vacation!
