The Dancing Dugong Resort

We are based out of our own resort, located very conveniently right off the jetty on the northern side of Neil.    And Full Moon Cafe, our award-winning partner restaurant, is now operating out of the resort as well.

In keeping with our philosophy, we didn’t cut down any trees to build the resort – instead, we planted about 40 trees on the property.   These are all local trees, and so provide a suitable habitat for the wildlife of the islands.    Going forward, the landscaping of the resort will also be done using local bushes (not pretty plant species which do not belong here).     As with our Havelock resort, we are hoping this encourages many of the original Neil residents (namely, birds and reptiles) to co-exist peacefully with the humans.

By the time we are done, we are also hoping to have the lights and fans in rooms fully powered by solar electricity, and achieve over 70% water recycling/re-use.

Garden rooms are comfortable air-conditioned rooms with a balcony, TV and en-suite facilities and by a strange coincidence, they happen to overlook the garden of the resort.

Room only Rs. 5,500
Single Occupancy – Room + All Meals Rs. 6,900
Double Occupancy – Room + All Meals Rs. 8,300
  • GST extra, as per applicable norms at the time (currently 12%)

Our Cottage rooms are large, stand-alone… well, cottages (as you can see, poetical names aren’t our strong point).    They are also air-conditioned, have a TV and en-suite facilities, and are spacious enough to sleep 3 or even 4, with extra beds.

Room only Rs. 6,500
Single Occupancy – Room + All Meals Rs. 7,900
Double Occupancy – Room + All Meals Rs. 9,300
Triple Occupancy – Room + All Meals Rs. 11,200
  • GST extra, as per applicable norms at the time (12% at present)


We offer (and strongly recommend that you avail of) a Meet and Greet facility which includes airport pickup, transfer to the jetty (including round trip ferry tickets), transfers in Neil, return transfer to the hotel in Port Blair and then to the airport on your departure.  For more information, please visit our Trip Planning page.
