Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my partner.

This three-room lodge is the perfect location for travellers who want the views of savusavu without the hassle of booking somewhere up on the hill/out of town. It's just a 15 minute walk into central savusavu.

The host is so accommodating and really makes you feel welcome. The rooms are spotless. Loved the communal dining area where you can look at the ocean and watch the sunset. Breakfasts here are lovely!

I stayed in the garden view room, but next time will opt for the ocean view room as it has lounge chairs and of course--and ocean view.

Great place for solo female travellers as you'll feel really safe here. Super quiet and surrounded by tropical gardens! A beach where you can swim is just steps away as well.

Gecko Lodge is nice to stay because the lady running it is very kind and helpful. It's more like staying in her house more than a lodge. Very comfortable and the food Sara makes is very delicious. I would recommend staying here as it's just outside the busy area and is more relaxing.

We were the first people to stay here which always makes me nervous. It was however fantastic. A huge spacious room with a big bathroom, lounge and access to a kitchen.

It is about a 10 minute walk from the ferry but Sara's fetched us and even stopped for us to stock up at the supermarket.

I would definitely stay there again. Be sure to have dinner at Hidden Paradise.

I stayed at The Gecko Lodge for 5 nights this past week and LOVED it. I was traveling solo and Sara made me feel quite welcome and cared about. The lodge is sparkling clean and very comfortable. The location is convenient for walks into town as well as snorkeling. Sara arranged for a driver/guide for sightseeing as well as reservations for snorkeling. Her recommendations for local sights, etc. were much appreciated. This is a small, owner run lodge so no upscale amenities but you cannot go wrong with a stay in this serene place. Try to book the larger room facing the bay.

My wife, and son, and I stayed for two nights. We wanted to stay three more nights, but no rooms were available. The location is good--quiet because it is at the edge of town but close enough for a 15-to-20 minute walk to town or to take a very quick taxi ride. The rooms were large with air conditioning and had everything we needed. The showers were especially nice. The view of the harbor from the outdoor common area is excellent. Best of all is Sarah the manager. She answered numerous questions about Savusavu by email before we arrived, and when we were there, she was very helpful arranging activities and giving us restaurant reviews.

Great place to stay in Savusavu. Reasonably priced. Saras and Jeremy are super hosts. Loaner bikes making going back and forth to town easy. Nice snorkeling is a short bicycle ride away. Saras has relationships with the best local dive company (KoroSun), taxi drivers, and masseuses so can arrange anything you need. The room overlooking the water is definitely the one you want.

We spent 12 days roughing it in the bush and our last few nights in Fiji we chose the Gecko Lodge. Sparkling clean, small fridge, cooking facilities and cool room was just what we needed. The best part about the lodge is the owner who took time to arrange transports and activities we loved. We snorkeled, hiked the rainforest, visited villages etc. We felt cared for and pampered. Many people in Savu savu knew her and had great respect for her and the Gecko Lodge. Excellent!

We absolutely loved our time at Gecko Lodge. It is close to Savusavu and right across the road from the ocean. The facilities are modern and clean and you can immediately tell that a lot of thought and care has gone in to creating a unique place. Each of the rooms has its own beautiful, individual, handcrafted tiling work that fits in with the themes of the local environment.

The tap water is drinkable, the showers are hot and the WiFi is free.

Hosts Sarah and Jeremy were very friendly and so helpful, going out of their way to make it stay in Savusavu a wonderful experience. We highly recommend Gecko Lodge and will definitely stay there again if we return to beautiful Savusavu.

We stayed in end of June - beginning of July at this lovely lodge. There is a shared outside kitchen area, with great amenities. There are three rooms, we split our stay between a garden view and the front facing Savusavu Bay. The rooms are beautifully done and have excellent airconditioning. The owners are lovely, friendly but unobtrusive. We absolutely enjoyed our time and would love to come back! We were easy walking distance to town and to Split Rock in the other direction for some brilliant snorkelling straight off the road!
