I got a little late in making my bookings and thus I could not find a room here in the initial 2 days of my stay at Havelock. But once I checked in here (on a monday that is) I had nothing to complain about. Rooms: Lovely beach huts with balconies that offer a lovely view of beach. And then... More

I zeroed down on Emerald Gecko after doing a fair bit of research on Trip Advisor. We (me and my newly-wed wife) stayed here for 4 Days & 4 Nights in the month of March,2015. Since, it being our Honeymoon, I din't want to take any chances. Even though I was thorough in my research and read some great things... More

I had made an email request to book a cottage for me at The Emerald Gecko with specific dates. I got a reply saying the specific accommodation was available for specific dates. Then I asked them to confirm the booking....after that I did not hear from them for a fortnight, despite several email reminders. When I landed up at the... More

From the title you can gauge that my review is going to add 2 cents from my side to already much acclaimed treasure of Emerald Gecko , having said that there would be few more properties in the region of same class and few might be tad better.. Coming to what we experienced was proximity to nature , the beach... More

Wake up to a Beautiful Sunrise and take a walk along the beach. What could be more lively than watching the sea change its colors along the time of the day. Sleep under the trees and feel the sea breeze touch past you. Amazing feeling at the Gecko ! Oh I am in love with this place and Havelock !!

10 steps away from a private beach. An almost horizontal tree which looks as if it is leaning on water. A swing tied to the tree. You can just forget the time there. The huts are very well maintained and the staff is amazing. They provide a common fridge where you can store liquids. I didn't get a chance to... More

I visited Andamans in Janurary and stayed at the Emerald Gecko for 8 days. A friend recommended the place to me and it was an excellent choice. I stayed in the bamboo cabin with the attached bath right next to the beach. The beach is beautiful and there is a nice swing on a tree which is great to sit... More

We stayed in the beach shack. Just two minutes and you are on the beach. The room was basic and comfortable, with an open air bathroom which was adventurous for us. All facilities worked at all times, only one has to go to the common water heater to get hot water. The view is excellent, and on some days, you... More
