Fortune is the best resort to stay in with a fabulous view. The food at the restaurant of the hotel is amazing. You have wonderful views to look out for. You can see the photo of the rs20 note from the hotel.

My title says it all. ITC, corporation to which this hotel belongs to, is a government agency that boasts some of the most luxurious hotels in India (see their new hotel in Bangalore). Fortune bay sits on a beautiful cliff overlooking the bay and an island with a famous lighthouse from a 20 rupee bill. Hotel is however in desperate need of repair (both infrastructure and management). Since getting a beer in the islands is a feat of unimaginable proportions we went to this hotels bar to get one as we were told it serves it most of the day. Inside, a beautiful terrace where the bar is located (see pic for view) was ruined by following: 1) when we asked the sleepy bartender which was the password for the wifi, we were told it was only for paying customers. After explaining that we were paying for their service in the form of a beer, he added that only those customers paying for the room are eligible for wifi. It started sounding like United Airlines ticket buying....;
2) lukewarm beer (only one brand)
3) incredibly bland food

We had a couple of hours to kill in Port Blair on our return from Havelock before the flight out to mainland India. This is primarily a hotel. The bar is at the entry level floor. It has a rather open structure with views onto the sea. Other floors of the hotel go down along the cliff face where the hotel is perched. The bartender seemed uninspired. We ordered our kingfisher beers. Also ordered some snacks off the menu. The food was ok, nothing special.
The sea views and the open structure are clearly the winners here.
WiFi access is possible only if you are staying at the hotel.

The resort itself is well located overlooking the Bay of Bengal with a lovely view. It doesn’t have a private beach.

Though it’s a good property with a nice dining area, the rooms and dining area are quite basic for the tariff charged.

The restaurant also has a good view of the ocean but the service is very slow. Food was good but nothing great. Their breakfast also doesn’t start until 8am so if you have a ferry to catch to Havelock, they will pack you a very basic breakfast of a banana, apple and bread butter with a boiled egg.

We did happen to walk around port Blair a bit, and if you are looking for a family resort with a view, this seems to be the best option around, though they have much scope for improvement.

Clean and hygienic, with a beautiful view of surrounding islands. Very nice feeling sitting in the balcony in the evenings and watching the boats go by. A table tennis table is available to help you spend your free time actively. The pool is small but sufficient. Food is good but expensive - but that's the case everywhere in Port Blair. They seem to have you captive. They also have a stock of books (wouldn't really call it a library, for there is no room to sit and read) which most other hotels seem averse to have for some reason.
