One of the few places on this stretch of beach where the accommodation is close to the water (ie less then 50 meters) The 2 storey bamboo huts are fabulous and it is all very clean with clean bedding. Beds also have mozzi nets and are comfortable. It is very quiet here too - seem to be less dogs fighting... More

I stayed at a doublestourey bungalow with my own shower and toilet which, for me, was really comfortable! You've got a fan, a moscitonet, there's light in every storey and even in the bath"room". It's not really a room but thats what makes it even more interesting and you feel somehow a bit like a jungle-queen (or king or anything... More

One of the best places to relax on the beach number 5 Bamboo cottages are great, they have a lot of space and a bathroom in the open air.The only minus is that women with the service notorious for 7 days were woken terribly loud talking at the cottage punctually at seven in...

I was not lucky enough to get a room here as it was a peak season but we planned for a dinner here and so it was. It was a full moon night, with live band performance and the ambience they set up on the beach was beyond imagination (photo provided). Food at the restaurant was awesome, specially the red... More

A blue sea that recedes miles in the low tide. Live corals. Fresh sea cucumbers. Abundance of Hammocks on the beach. And.. wait for it.. a private beach! Emerald Gecko serves as the perfect chicken soup for the tired urban soul looking for a break from the monotony! While Havelock Islands brings to you the best of the Andamans, quite... More

Probably one of the best place to stay in Havelock. The location is excellent with beach right in front of your hut made of bamboo. The scenic beauty was amazing. They also have a restaurant with some good food.

Not much distance to beach for all of them. I read other reviews and took hut which is supposed to be closer but hardly 10 mtr distance between all the 17 rooms. they... More

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
