Where To Stay in Little Andaman - Hutbay
Little Andaman has very little options for accommodation and that too not on a luxurious side. This island is basically preferred by backpackers and so is the type of accommodation to suit backpackers. Here are the various options to stay at Little Andaman Islands
Private accommodation Options To Stay in Little Andaman
There are 5-6 privately run lodges/ Guesthouses and eco-resorts that we could locate in Little Andaman to serve as an accommodation option during your stay.
Most of the stays that we found were double sharing or single occupancies fan-cooled eco-cottages with basic amenities like a bed with mattress and pillows, with attached toilet and bath. It is suggested to carry your bath towels, beach towels, personal hygiene essentials, and toiletries.
Most of these private accommodations are situated in the locations between Hutbay beach near the harbor and Kalapathar Beach at Janta Tikrey.
Government accommodation Options to Stay in Little Andaman
There are guest houses/ lodges operated by departments like APWD and Forest Department. A government organization, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Forest Plantation Development Corporation Limited (ANIFPDCL) has also built a guest house and few beachside eco-cottages. These government accommodations are available to the government officials/government servants on providing due applications for reserving them.
These rooms are allotted to tourists also but only based on availability. Hence the availability of these resorts can be checked on arriving at the islands only.
Any of the government or privately-run accommodations of Little Andaman (Hutbay) are not available online on any portal. Even if they are seen updated, it is better to contact a local tour operator, who has telephonic touch-n-tie-up with these properties so that a confirmed reservation could be done for your stay.
There are hardly 70-75 rooms inventory overall in Little Andaman for the visitors. As on current dates, lesser tourists are going to the Little Andamans as a part of their trip. So you may consider booking accommodation as a walk-in-customer. But, as we always say – Nothing is better than pre-booking.
