Green Gecko rises like a mirage amidst its own working woodlands, rice paddies and lime plantations, deep in the countryside of northeast Thailand. Designed in the traditional Thai style, this exotic, two-bedroom private pool villa is clad in wood and has steeply sloped roofs with terracotta tiles. It is accessed via a double wooden staircase that leads to its large wooden deck, around which the villa is centered.
The raised deck itself offers a shaded relaxation area, an open sundeck and a seductive private swimming pool with an infinity edge and views of the countryside.
To the left of the deck is a large Thai pavilion housing the villa’s Thai and Western kitchens, as well as a spacious air-conditioned living room and sunken TV snug area and the villa’s dining area. To the right of the deck are two fully air-conditioned bedrooms. Each has wooden floors and a private bathroom and shower.
Your glamping holiday at this Thai countryside villa includes daily breakfast, lunch and dinner cooked for you by the owners who farm rice and live in a village a few kilometers away. They will also be on hand to do the washing up and your laundry, and they will be a font of knowledge about local activities, places to see and festivals in the immediate area. The owners will be happy to accompany you to these—or to simply leave you to enjoy the villa in total privacy.
Unusual activities include boat trips on the nearby Red Lotus Sea, learning to drive a tuk-tuk, visits to local wet-markets and towns overrun by monkeys, as well as joining in with the planting of rice seedlings or the rice harvest.
Green Gecko offers truly unusual and unique holidays in rural Thailand away from the crowd. Come and get to know the locals and discover a whole new side of Thailand!
