Tilar Siro
South India

The original Andamanese who settled in Havelock Island thousands of years ago named the island Tilar Siro, which translates to ´the land that emerges from the sea´

The Tilar Siro, located in Havelock Island of the Andamans, has 25 double-storied compounds spread through two and a half-acres of rich green vegetation. These Compounds have 4 rooms each and are all connected by elevated wooden walkways that are great for wheelchair access. The rooms have a modern touch of metal and wood with a view of the Andaman Sea. All amenities in the room are included and toiletries used are all sustainable.

Design throughout the property is important. Art sturctures by Karala based artist Rajeev Valsala Kumaran can be appreciated in different corners of the hotel. The artist is also famous for using metal and bamboo; a trademark true to Tilar Siro. 

Spaces are open and breezy. The restaurant offers a series of cuisines, as well as the more commonly known Indian and Continental staples, there is a whole menu inspired by Burmese style cuisine. The main ingredients are fish, vegetables, spices and fresh herbs.

As part of being a CGH property, the Tilar Siro encourages guests to immerse themselves in local experiences. Begin by signing up to one of the various scuba programs the hotel has to offer. Explore the dense forest by going on a guided walk and learning about the diverse plants.  If you like walks, take the guided intertidal walk that offers a glimpse of the shallow tide pools, which are full of marine life. Other activities include paddle boarding and kayaking. If you would rather relax, have a drink at the pool.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had.

An absolutely first-class service all round!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim.
