I have to say at the outset that the management was super helpful at the Emerald Gecko. We were there with our 9-month-old daughter in February and were very comfortable in the basic cabin that we had rented. We were a little nervous as this was the first time we were travelling with her on a "real vacation" without any... More

You can see the beach from the window as the hotel is situated on the beach...The furniture are also made of bamboo..The bathroom has no roof... More

Stayed at both the bungalow and the beach side cottage.. Basic rooms with an ethnic touch to it.. All bamboo! The restaurant has a simple and nice touch to it .. Beach has a swing that I loved the most..as the high tide comes, your feet will be splashed with the clear blue waves.. It's a postcard moment!

I stayed in Emerald Gecko twice; once in November 2013 and again in April 2014. This is my favourite place to stay in Havelock Island. The rooms are value for money and their restaurant area is a place to just hang around and make friends from all over the world. The rooms are rustic with basic furniture and neat and... More

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
