Originally an overgrown banana and betel nut plantation, Jalakara is a boutique hotel in the balmy tropical rainforest of Havelock Island in the Andaman archipelago. With an abundance of natural light and vast views, it offers something truly unique and idyllic.

The hotel is tucked away and has just six secluded suites to give guests privacy and the ultimate tranquil experience. Each room is individually designed incorporating colorful textiles, glass screen doors and impressive views. Enjoy your own private roof terrace with the Tower Room with 360 degree views, the veranda looking out onto the untouched rainforest with the contemporary Sunset Suite or opt for the Garden suite where you can while away the afternoon in this lush oasis of calm.

Owned by British chef Mark Hill, guests can expect excellent cuisine at the Jalakara with fresh ingredients and flavors. Light lunches are served at the pool by day, and exceptional locally sourced seafood by night. Served in the dining pavilion, end the day indulging your taste buds looking out over the rainforest beyond.

The Andaman islands are renowned for diving and as one of the most popular activities on Havelock Island, you can see some extraordinary marine life. Boat trips, jungle walks and bird watching trails are just some of the other activities available. A stay at Jalakara adds some downtime to any cultural itinerary, combining particularly well with India.
