Good staff, good service, amazing food, good options between cheap and more comfy huts, lodge and bungalows. I recommend by strongest rate! Emerald Gecko is also part of a com pay that owns diving resorts, restaurants and similar facilities so they help you get other activities done.

Hello Folks, I got chance to stay in Emerald in Nov. I had booked Bunglow. They have 3 options for us. Hut ( common bathroom etc.), Bungalow (private bathroom etc), Lodge (not sure but better than Bungalow). Place is very near to the Seashore and surrounded by coconut trees. In fact you can listen to waves easily. As hotel is... More

The bamboo lodge is the most peaceful, romantic room that we stayed in.. I want to go and stay there as long as possible. There are 3 types of rooms- hut(doesnot have attach loo) , bunglow (more like a hut made of bamboo) and bamboo lodge(1 storey of awesomeness). Amazing food and service

Excellent hotel with great tasting food and ambience. Very relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Hotel gives easy access to the sea which is very safe. The sea is shallow and once can walk a fair bit without drowning.

For the most part, I loved this place and what it had to offer. The rooms are very basic and nice and made mostly of bamboo. One can't say its clean, but the towels, beds and sheets were clean. The bathroom/toilet doesn't have a roof but there are no tall structures close by so you still have your privacy. Mosquito... More

This second visit was as good as the first. Accommodation is simple (cold shower/water on tap, hot from buckets) so if you want the Hilton dont come here. Super beachside location. For me the special part is the casual and generous random spacing of the huts....not rammed together, end-to-end in lines. Guests are typically friendly.

I stayed in Emerald Gecko in December 2014 for 2 days. The first thing you will notice is that this is kind of a secluded place with little activity. There are around 15-20 hut type structures which have double beds and other facilities. There is no concrete flooring as such and the resort has sand flooring, though the rooms have... More

It is located on beach no:5. You could view the beach from the hotel. There is a nice sit out facing the sea. There are choice of other restaurants around the place besides the one at emerald gecko. The only bad part is they don't serve liquor. However, you could get liquor from outside and store it in a common... More

We stayed at the gecko for 6 nights in December 2014. The staff was very friendly especially the restaurant manager, Ajay. The main complaint was that there was a rat in the room (we didn't know rats were fond of pistachio!). When we informed the front desk, the manager merely said that this is a jungle and we can't guarantee... More

The place almost has a private beach to itself with hammocks and swings. They have the best in-house beach facing restaurant in Havelock island. No booze though, but you can get your own, or tip the restaurant staff to bring it for you from the market. The staff are very friendly and will give you the best service possible. They... More
