Holiday Villas in Thailand for Rent
Accommodation in Thailand: a hotel or a villa?
Over the past few years, there has been a tremendous growth in the options available to visitors to the Kindgom, in terms of accommodation offered.
Private villas - either standalone or forming part of a resort - can now be booked directly, and offer a more in-depth exploration of the country, better facilities and more space - all for less than a hotel stay!
Here we explore a number of avenues for those seeking to try an alternative during their next trip to Thailand.
Green Gecko in Northeast Thailand
Green Gecko is a traditionally styled Thai country house with its own swimming pool, offering fully catered stays of two nights or more. Guests are looked after by a family who live in a nearby village, and who will be delighted to show you the local area and places of interest off the beaten track, to teach you thai cooking and immerse you in the local ways of life.
The villa sleeps 4, and has two large airconditioned bedrooms, a large living and dining room, fully equipped kitchens, internet access, LCD TV, a large wooden deck, loungers and sala - all set on extensive private country grounds.
