My friends and I visited Gecko lounge for 2 nights and the services was great. We liked the chalets, simple and clean and comfortable. We had all our meals at the restaurant where they have the most delicious pizzas and burgers. You must try the super gecko pizza and the chilli sauce beef burger. The best food we had while we were in Malawi. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, attended to all our requests. Be prepared to dance the night away as you have some drinks at the bar, but dont worry when you are ready to sleep, the music cant be heard from the chalets. However, in the morning there is a lot of noise coming from the village, children playing etc and might disturb your sleep.
But that did not taint our image of the place. We had a good variety of activities, the sunset cruise, snorkeling, feeding the fish eagle- as our boat "captain/chef" prepared some fresh fish for us to eat by the water.
Thanks Gecko Lounge crew, we totally enjoyed ourselves.
