Tilar Siro

The Tilar Siro is a small luxury resort located 1400 kilometers from mainland India within the Andaman Islands on the Vijay Nagar beach in Havelock. The name is derived from the indigenous Great Andamanese tribe who referred to the island as ‘Thi-Lar-Siro’ meaning ‘the land that emerges from the sea’. At the Tilar Siro, the emphasis is on nature. Here, nature’s beauty abounds with pristine white sand, lush tropical forests, panoramic views, and tranquil cerulean waters.
The resort hosts spacious rooms that are modernist and minimal, yet luxuriously set amidst lush tropical gardens overlooking the sea beyond. At Tilar Siro, guests can explore the stunning outdoors with a Discover Scuba program or multi-day scuba diving course under the able guidance of Lacadives’ dive masters, guided intertidal walks for awe-inspiring glimpses of the marine world, and relaxing strolls along the beach

The rooms are minimalist with tastefully curated interiors and all the modern luxuries.

Restaurants & Bars

The menu at the breezy dining space overlooking lush mangroves and cerulean seas at Tilar Siro features regional and international cuisines, with a focus on fresh seafood. Guests can savor the distinct and delicious Karen cuisine and Burmese-style fare of communities from Myanmar who made the islands their home.

Spa & Wellness

There is no spa or fitness center at Tilar Siro. The large palm-lined pool is a great place to unwind and offers glimpses of the sea peeking through the trees.


At Tilar Siro discover a magical setting and an amazing underwater world. The island is home to many exotic species of flora and fauna and is great for snorkeling and diving.  Tilar Siro has collaborated with Lacadives, India’s pioneer of scuba diving for various diving excursions. They also offer a host of PADI-verified courses to suit all skill levels.

Intertidal walks are perfect for families who don’t want to go diving yet want to explore the unique wonders that exist on the surface of the sea. Timed during low tides, the receding waters expose the otherwise hidden rocky shore ecosystem of marine plants, corals, sponges, and juvenile fish.

Tilar Siro also offers birdwatching and trekking in Havelock’s dense forests.
