February is considered to be one of the best months

 

Valentine’s Day falls in February and the hotel surcharges are also reduced after going high in the month of December and January.

 

Right after the peak season, the hotels/resort prices will be normal without any surcharges and you can opt for a property that you prefer from among the premium to luxury categories. There a couple of properties that exclusively host Valentine’s Day parties in Havelock and surcharges are applicable only on the hotels that host parties.

 

Since the Valentine’s Day parties are hosted only in Havelock Islands by a couple of properties, it is advisable for you to book tickets for the parties in advance if you wish to attend the party, as only a few hotels host parties and it might get full.

 

Accommodation for Couples

 

Choose luxurious properties by the beach for your stay and enjoy the sound of the ocean waves during late evenings with your loved one.
There are numerous properties on each island that have private pools it would be a good feeling to spend some time at the pool that is surrounded by beautiful nature! While looking for a property to stay at Andamans you could go for a property that has a private pool or a beach resort. It will be a great experience at properties like these for a romantic tour.
