We went there after booking in advance many days back.Stayed in bungalow there and it was beautiful with a earthy feel. Open air showers were amazing and something different to experience. We found only the food basic and a little expensive.Rest everything went well and nice.

We agree with the Lonely Planet that Emerald Gecko is one of few places on this island whose design is likely to please most Western eyes. The huts are very pretty and comfortable. The mattresses are a bit softer than usual in this part of the world, which was great. Their complimentary breakfast is nice but otherwise we found the... More

We stayed 3 nights in Gecko and we simply loved it. Firstly its not a luxury hotel, its for the budget travellers. We booked the two storey lodge and its amazing. The wooden walls, dim lighted rooms , balcony, the small wooden couch, the open shower etc was a different experience all together. Its not very spacious but good enough... More

Basic beach huts so we considered it pricy for what you got ( in comparison to other similar resorts). However, the customer service we got from Padma was brilliant. Booked us in advance, organised ferry ticket purchase and rickshaw to meet us at the airport- super stress free. The restaurant is only open for each meal time and is not... More

We spent a week here in Jan '15 and every single thing about this place is perfect. The staff were friendly, non intrusive and helpful. Located so close to the beach and yet so affordable this is one of the best choices for the buck. Food is nice too.

Good staff, good service, amazing food, good options between cheap and more comfy huts, lodge and bungalows. I recommend by strongest rate! Emerald Gecko is also part of a com pay that owns diving resorts, restaurants and similar facilities so they help you get other activities done.

In fact you can listen to waves easily. As hotel is... More

The bamboo lodge is the most peaceful, romantic room that we stayed in.. I want to go and stay there as long as possible. There are 3 types of rooms- hut(doesnot have attach loo) , bunglow (more like a hut made of bamboo) and bamboo lodge(1 storey of awesomeness). Amazing food and service

Excellent hotel with great tasting food and ambience. Very relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Hotel gives easy access to the sea which is very safe. The sea is shallow and once can walk a fair bit without drowning.
