Top choice boutique hotel in Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep)

Easily the chicest place to stay in the Andamans, this ecoconscious British-owned luxe-boutique hideaway is built into a banana-and-betel-nut plantation, 3.5km south of the jetty. It wows with its rainforest-view infinity pool, organic cooking, small spa, daily yoga, open-air bathrooms and seven highly original, design-led, tropical-life rooms, styled with antiques, earthy tones, polished concrete, and curtains crafted from saris.

The gorgeous private villa centres on an ayurveda-inspired copper plunge pool.
