After 2 months working in the rain forest in Netewa this Gecko Lodge was an oasis made in heaven as I headed back to the airport and needed one overnight before my flight home. Small scale, friendly and a high standard. Lovel, bed, great shower, room and a veranda and small garden area that takes some beating. A small site high on the hillside so maybe not so suited for those with walking difficulties. Walking distance into town but taxi's available in minutes and all excellent value. Sara and her partner who run Gecko Lodge very friendly and helpful, even finding my lost passport minutes before I left for the airport. Would love to go back and spend more time based here.

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.

We stayed at Gecko for 7 nights. The majority of the reviews about gecko r good and we can confirm this. What a lovely, relaxing hotel Sarah and Jeremy have. A place to really unwind and kick back, watching the sun go down from the front porch with a fiji gold. Just walk down to the water and take a dip in the ocean, or go snorkeling. Savusavu town s about 15 mins. walk, you can take a taxi back 3.20F$. The captains cafe at the Copra shed s a good place for a meal and refreshment. Sarah has all the local knowledge and nothing is a bother. The room is uniquely decorated and absoluty spotless, so s the kitchen. The matrass and pillows are very comfortable. A place to forget about your daily worries and go back to the home country feeling recharged.
Thanks Sarah+Jeremy

We had a fantastic stay at gecko lodge, the rooms are clean and comfortable and Sarah the owner lovely and very accommodating to our group of 3. The kayaks, bikes and snorkels are provided and wifi is also free of charge. We liked it so much we came back the weeekend after. Would recommend to anyone looking for a reasonably priced lodge in savusavu with a beautiful view!

First of all, getting to Savusavu with bus/ferry is not much fun, better to avoid it and take a flight.
The lodge itself is lovely, the cleanest place I have experienced in Fiji, and Sarah is a wonderful and helpful host. She has some nice fruit trees in the garden, so we could eat avocado right from the tree! She helped with the activities as well.
Best place in Savusavu!
