    When I was planning my holiday in the Andamans, a week before the trip I had called Mr Satya, in the resort office on several occasions. He was very cooperative in helping to plan the trip, providing inputs regarding what to see, when to see, about the local attractions and even what to do in Havelock, Neil and Long islands.
