Havelock island Expenses querry.

Hi,

I am confused in between 2 places for Honeymoon in the month of October 14.

Places are:

Vythiri Resort, Wayanad Kerala

Havelock island (Barefoot resort)

Duration: 4-5 Nights

Budget: 75-80k INR

Can somebody suggest me which place should i opt for. Residing in bangalore andaman is going a bit costly (Including Air ticket which is not the case for Wayanad). But if somebody here could tell me about the expenses other than Hotels like Food, Sight seeing and other water activities. How much normally a meal lunch/dinner would cost in Havelock island. Havlock's package is costing me 48K + 30k For flights, so i just want to know how much extra we could end spending on food and 1-2 water activities. Max it should not cross 1Lakh INR. Also is there any Travel Agency which could provide me some discount on bookings in BAREFOOT Resort.

On the other hand Vythiri covers all charges and seems a bit inside my budget. But i have a doubt of getting too bored out there in 4-5 nights.

Barefoot at Havelock is superlative in terms of both natural beauty + service. While it might be slightly on higher side, its worth it.

Hi Vaishali, Sheetal

Many thanks for sharing your inputs. I have finalized my holidays and did the bookings also. I am going to stay in Sea Shell in Havelock and The Nest in PB and will have a 5N6D trip. Till now including the Air Fare it has costed me around 80k including Sea walk and breakfast and some sightseeing places like Radhanagr, Kalapatthar beach, Ross island and i am adding another 10-15k for our expenses during the stay . I think its reasonable for a couple. What's your opinion?

Forgot to add that my package also includes to and fro trip from PB-Havelock via Makruzz.

Hope this will help others who are also planning.

I did my bookings through "Barefoot Holidays" agency. Don't be confused by the name because they do bookings for other hotels also.

sea shell is bad choice. its towards kalapathhar side and there is no beach to be enjoyed. if u wanted to choose a budget propeorty, u shud have done it on radha beach. sea shell is next to the jetty

ankit, Barefoot resort is one of the most AWSOME for honeymooners for it quiet, AWSOME beach, the trees around it are 100 feet high and perhaps 500 years old, cold shade, awesome service, EXTREMELY romantic. pls reconsider.its worth every penny u spend on it. after all u only honeymoon once. u wont regret booking barefoot.
