We stayed there as couple in the bamboo bungalows. The cottages are nicely lit up with an open sky bathroom. Amazing indeed.Not much flooring inside the washroom and you may find few insects and I found one big spider hiding inside our bathroom commode. The be on the safer side, flush before you answer nature's call ! These cottages give... More

We stayed at the hut second closest to the beach and it was wonderful. We could sit on the porch and see the ocean. The power was a bit on and off, but we really loved the place. Clean and very friendly staff and a good restaurant. The staff helped us to rent a vespa (best way to get around... More

I visited Havelock Island in December 2015, and stayed at Emerald Gecko for 2-3 days. If you want an authentic island experience then this the place for you! The huts are wooden, the bathroom has no flooring, so you are actually walking on the beach sand when you are in the bathroom. There are a variety of insects, since its... More

I stayed in Emarald Gecko back in Feb 2014 but I am writing this review now. This is the best place to stay in Havelock. I stayed in Beach Hut and I would say it was more than worth what I paid for. The cleanliness, the service, the staff, the restaurant everything is just perfect. Since my stay, I have... More

This place is amazing, the beach is one of the most beautiful in the Island. The hutts are great. The restaurant is really good with fresh food. Not all the staff is friendly but they are all reliable. It's a quite place. If you want to go to paradise go there!

This review is a little old since we stayed at Emerald Gecko in Dec 2013 over new years (Tripadvisor is not letting me date this review older than May 2015) for our honeymoon. But we had such an amazing time and the owners are lovely so I am sure it hasn't changed much and if it has it would be... More

We moved here after an awful experience of another resort down the road (Sunrise). Emerald Gecko's huts were much cleaner and had much more character. However, it did come at a price (2500 rupees at start of the low season). We did not find privacy an issue as the huts have been designed so as to not overlook one another.... More

Stayed at the Emerald Gecko between 17.03.16 - 24.03.16 with my partner. We stayed in the Bamboo lodge which is double storey right next to the reception and the bamboo bungalow single storey next to the hot water boiler. If I had to choose I would say the bamboo bungalow was better. It was newer, more spacious, had more shelving... More

The location is unbeatable. Probably best in Havelock because of the close proximity to the very nice and serene beach including hammocks. Our time was wonderful. We stayed for 8 nights in one of the bamboo huts. The ressort is well kept and clean with very friendly staff and a homely atmosphere. You can really relax and enjoy paradise there.... More
