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.

We stayed in Huts but found it smaller for 2 people. but the beach is right in front and they have amazing kitchen(blackbeard's bistro). Better take lodge/bunglow. 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

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!

We stayed here for 3 nights in a little 2 story beach hut ( no toilet). The huts were lovely felt very rustic and just as you would imagine beach hut living to be. They are double story and you can open up the front to view the sea from you bed which was a great touch and kept the... More

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
