Green Gecko is an eco-lodge situated in the north-east countryside of Thailand. It offers its guests a singular experience of this region, at a fully-catered destination. Standing on 3 ha very private grounds, surrounded by woodlands and rice paddies, this two-bedroom villa is built in the classical Thai style around a large wooden deck of the private saltwater swimming pool.

Holidays at the property include authentic fresh Thai meals daily, and tailored to your tastes or preferences. The local owners are a call away and are happy to involve guests in village life, in visiting nearby places of interest, or arranging any services required such as traditional Thai massage. Also on the villa’s doorstep is the vast and magical Red Lotus Lake or Talay Buadaeng, carpeted in pink lilly flowers from December through February.

Green Gecko aims to showcase and preserve Thai traditions, to create local employment and to establish an oasis for indigenous flora and fauna in an area often given over to rice farming. Don’t be surprised to see iridescent butterflies, white squirrels leaping among the branches, or a giant lizard plodding across your path!
