Emerald Gecko is a amazing experience for those who love nature and want to experience it in very natural and crude form. Luxury travellers please skip this out....not one of the cozy resorts. I would recommend in 5-6 days trip to the island one should atleast stay for a day or two. The location is awesome because of its proximity... More

Emerald Gecko is one of the best options in Havelock. We stayed at the bamboo lodges which were very comfortable. They have awesome restaurant offering great food specially mushroom pasta and thin crust pizzas. They don't have in-house bar but you can buy the booze from market and chill it in their refrigerator. Very friendly staff. Manoj, their manager will... More

If you don't want to burn your purses and be close to nature, then Emerald Gecko is the perfect place to stay. Wonderfully located, the bamboo huts are set upon a white sandy beach and opens up directly into the pristine blue sea. Well-maintained and hygienic, the place offers all the basic comforts with some great food at the Black... More

We were 9 friends who stayed here for about 4 nights while on our trip to Havelock. The location is great with very good access to the beach. Blue-green waters are sure to greet you when you wake up. The property overall isn't very large but the huts and bungalows are spaced out well. The showers, while connected to the... More

I stayed at Emerald Gecko in May 2013 for 4 nights. The place offers multiple stay options based on your budget. The hotel is eco-friendly and is not meant for someone looking for worldly comforts.. but who really need those things at the havelock island! The beach is just few meters away from the rooms. We got to meet a... More
