Highly recommended for couples on a romantic get-away or for anyone who needs a quiet breakaway for a few days. Completely private. Excellent unobtrusive service. Best food in Thailand. Definitely a destination I will return to.

We could not have had a better start to our Thailand holiday. Green Gecko was a beautiful, private sanctuary. The villa, deck, and pool were simply lovely. We loved the opportunity to get away from the tourist traps so common in Thailand. We had the opportunity to help (shamefully briefly) with the rice harvest, and enjoyed cycling around the surrounding...

Coming from hectic Bangkok to Udon Thani for a few days to stay at Green Gecko was a wonderful chance to unwind and relax. The villa is lovely, set in the bush, with a gorgeous setting, pool and rooms. Our two young boys loved being able to run around the garden and the villa, and loved exploring 'nature', given how...

Found Green Gecko in a book called Green Rooms (bought for 50pence!) so glad we did. the place is amazing, peaceful, incredible food. We felt we touched real Thailand, not the Thailand that is shown to the tourists. would love to go back and spend more time there.

We spent 4 nights in February in this beautiful paradise.
