recommend this hotel
We came here for a 4 days getaway, and this has now become my favourite hotel to go to for a local Staycation.
We were here during offpeak and the resort is very relaxing, and staffs were incredibly attentive. Service, facilities and food were consistently good across the board - but I would really like to commend the Concierge at Andaman. They are exceptional (in fact better than some Butler services in other high end properties I have visited). The ability to whatsapp the concierge is another +++ that I love in this hotel.
As per other reviews, the property does require maintenance (or I would rather say a better contractor). The room I was in booked into looked like it just had some work done, but the shoddy job means that there were a lot of maintenance work needed (eg tiles and rack failling off). Maintenance was quick to come and address any issue, but again, if the build up is faulty, then the problem is not going to go away no matter how much maintenance is done.
Lastly, the setting of this hotel is incredible. The jungle , sea, view, animals and everything else makes up for a special holiday.
