Wild Orchid Resort

Vijaynagar Beach , Havelock Island
Vijaynagar , India
91 3192 282-472

The 12-room property, on Havelock Island, part of India’s Andaman archipelago, is reached by ferry from Port Blair. This is an oasis of style in the region: hand-carved beds, dark wood ceilings, rattan wall hangings. The menu at the open-air restaurant changes daily. Try the smoked trevally fish with chili mustard or the Burmese oh nout kaw swe, noodles simmered in coconut milk. Down a short, sandy footpath is isolated Beach No. 5, where the slope is so gentle it’s possible to wade 200 yards out.
