Does anyone know the latest?

I'm hoping to visit for Honeymoon in October but really need to know if it will be open as if it's not, it will change our entire trip from entry and exit point through to everything we see!

It seems difficult to find information on it.

Recommend to book Agatti island resort as well as a plan B.

Hi Sujith,

Only problem is that the romantic dinner on the beach won't be quite the same without a nice bottle of champagne or wine! I understand that Bangaram is the only island with alcohol served so if it doesn't re-open I think we'll be heading for the Andaman's again.

Apparently there was a court hearing on the 30th March when CGHearth who had the lease of the resort were putting forward their case as to why they should be given a new lease. Their argument is that they believed the lease would be renewed automatically! I haven't seen any information as to whether the case was heard or postponed. Given that 3 hearings have already been postponed and the slowness of the courts it is debatable as to whether Bangaram will be open again in time for October. As Sujith said you could go to Agatti or consider Kadmat but they are alcohol free islands. Many honeymooners do go to both these islands. I also agree that they are not quite as romantic as Bangaram where you can eat on the beach and have much of the island to yourselves.

Thanks Clive, much appreciated. CGH had said they would contact me but haven't heard anything in months. I've made an alternative plan just in case, but it would be good to know.

Not surprised you have not heard from CGH as I doubt they have any further interest in Bangaram.

So I have just heard that the court case will reopen on the 4th July. Knowing the judicial system in India this could mean:
1)It will be postponed yet again before the 4th July.
2)It will reopen and then postponed until a later date.
3)The judge decides that making a decision within one year is way too fast and slows the case down by adjourning it for 10 years which will fit in with the usual time frame cases take.
4)The monsoon rains flood the courtroom.
5)Everyone forgets where Bangaram is!

I'll keep you posted.

My money is on the decision taking so long that by the time they go to re-open it, global warming will have risen sea levels enough for it not to exist!

I hope not. I really want to visit.
