Andaman Trip - aNTILOG 10/10 ,pEERLESS - 8/10
From : Maihika Agrawal ( Mumbai Chapter)
Antilog – 10/10
Those who write negative about Antilog are very few in number & I am sure of it .I went with my husband to Andaman last month. we found the package deal initially in the website and booked the whole package through Antilog Vacations for the trip.I loved the whole wooden feel of the place,service of the tour and hotel selection : peerless -this is the only place in port blair with a beach right in front and that a beach that wonderful.
We took the package from Antilog as they hv given us good services earlier fr our Kerala trip earlier & Andaman is their speciality.Cheap & Nice package by them.It is suggested to book a package as mere hotel bookings and transportation is costly frm a travelers end.Also we dint wanted to travel in a group so it ws a personal & customized plan.
Peerless sarovar Portico – 8/10 , Fortune Bay island : 7/10
Since my hubby is very particular about the food, thank god the hotels lived up to my hopes. The buffet breakfast and dinner offered a variety ranging from angrezi to punjabi khaana, with bengali items thrown in. Well cooked and fresh meals which I enjoyed in the dining hall furnished in attractive bamboo, wood and glass.
The disadavantage is that the hotel (peerless)is away from city and it is not easy to get a taxi to go to city. However, Antilog transports people to city centre and one can spend time and return as per their convenience.
Fortune bay island:
The rooms are good but in the mainland India one get that type of room at 2-3 K max. I will recommend the 1st floor sea vie rooms that are much better than ground floor rooms. The upper floor rooms has a better sea view and are well maintained. Also the rooms are in better condition than that in the ground floor. We have the opportunity to stay at both type of rooms.
Altough there is not much hi fi about the place, I loved the ambiance and natural bliss of the resort and of course the humble staff. Don't go if you are expecting a lot of luxury, or 5 star treatment. But Its an excellent place to relax.
