“Authentically Thai, pastoral paradise”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Narkara Villas is an absolute gem; I can’t wait to return.

The villa itself is gorgeous, a sprawling Issan-style home with contemporary British influences, set among rice fields, but it was the charming hostess, Shanana, who made our trip feel like a homecoming, who prepared our amazing meals and offered us some of her mother’s more authentic food (Read: not for the typical American palate, but so true to the memory of my childhood), and who accommodated every whim of a family with two young kids, our dad and our driver and his wife. Can’t say enough good things.

A little more about the property itself:

• It’s large. The house really had 4 suites, each with their own bath and balcony.

• It’s authentic. There is harmony between indoor and outdoor spaces. The “corridors” are outdoors, doors open to balconies, eating areas are both inside and out, there’s an indoor/outdoor kitchen, etc. See photos, you’ll see what I mean.

• It’s contemporary. David and Shanana are obviously well traveled, and built a home that reflects modern conveniences without sacrificing its Thai soul.

• It’s deceptively remote. I mean, it’s situated right in the middle of rice fields, but you are really close to the city center.

• There’s a really nice pool in the courtyard. It gets hot in Thailand, fyi, the pool was a nice respite.

• The food. So, so amazing. We brought some of Shanana’s mom’s fermented fish dish back with us (and it cleared customs!)

All around wonderful experience. Go.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at this wonderful villa during 6 nights in July. What we most enjoyed is the tranquility. This villa is perfectly located in the middle of the ricefields, but not too far from the city. Shanana is a perfect hostess, she makes the stay very comfortable. She guides you on trips, is very enthousiastic. After staying here, our next stop in Phuket was a lot more noisy!

Thank you so much for choosing Nakara Villa for your holiday. It was a delight to host you and lovely family. We hope the rest of your holiday in Thailand was equally as enjoyable and you had a safe journey back home to Holland. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Udon Thani.

“Serenity in the Thai Countryside”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My family just returned from a very relaxing, luxurious and pampered stay at this fantastic property near the sleepy town of Udon Thani. The traditionally designed Thai house sits majestically by a slow running river among the paddy fields and lazily grazing buffalo. The facilities are all you could want for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday away from the hustle and bustle of Thai beaches and cities but within easy reach of a small town that provides shopping malls, supermarkets, night markets etc. The villa has clearly been built with love with so many small details that you rarely find in villas in the North East. The two master bedrooms suites were huge, possibly the largest rooms we have stayed in, yet still intimate and comfortable; absolutely ideal for a family of five.

Despite what the Lonely Planet guide says, the area also offers some fascinating historical places of interest such Ban Chiang, places of beauty such as the stunning Lotus Lake, places of amazement such as Sala Keoku and a quaint aquarium with a Mekong river theme (huge fish to entertain the kids) . For those who want to venture further afield, the Laos capital Vientiane is only an hour away by car.

The hostess was incredibly thoughtful and efficient. She went to extra special lengths to ensure my difficult dietary requirements were catered for (I can't eat gluten, dairy or eggs), whilst ensuring the food was incredibly tasty and presented as if we were at a 5 star resort! If you like Thai or oriental food of all kinds, you will be able to happily gorge yourselves. The cook, or rather I should say chef, was flawless; no matter what we asked for. The other staff were also very friendly and very efficient at keeping our clothes, linen and the beautiful garden clean and well-tended too.

The swimming pool was loved by our 3 young children. Very clean and safe. They were a bit too young to play the table tennis or pool table but the host kindly bought a badminton kit and inflatables for the pool which was very thoughtful.

You'll need a car to get around but there's hire car companies or, as our host kindly suggested and arranged, a driver to take us on day trips.

We will be going back to both the villa and the area and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a very different and unique way of experiencing real Thailand.

Excellent communication from when booking was made with excellent directions on precise location of Villas & i was even asked what was requested to eat for everybody upon arrival. Very friendly & helpful staff that are more than happy to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible by making & bringing refreshments (and cold towels) on a regular basis & even with the option of them cooking you dinner while you sit on a terrace relaxing.
Each Villa has its own adjoining bathroom both are decorated & finished to a very tasteful & unique high standard.
The swimming pool is a beautifully finished infinity pool with salt water which is different from anywhere else locally deep enough to dive in and long enough to do lengths in & it even has a infant pool at 1 end which was great.
The pool table is full size with new balls which has recently been re-clothed.

“A wonderful villa and home away from home from in Udon”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed here as a family of 4 travelling up to Udon from Bangkok to join in with the festivals. We were introduced to the villa as we were associated with the owners and came with no expectations so we were all amazed to find such a stunning villa. As regular travelers to Udon I can honestly say there is nothing to compare with this Villa in terms of places to stay. It is really a diamond in Udon. We believe we were one of the first guests here and we could see there are still a few bits of decorating to be finished as well as parts of the garden that need developing though nothing that stopped us from enjoying the villa. It can only be better and better in the future.

The pool was superb….so big for a private villa. Our kids loved the pool table and table tennis table as well as playing football in the large garden. We loved being so well looked after by the housekeepers. The rooms are all big and gorgeous with the open roofs. We were also lucky as the rice fields were in full bloom so everything looked gorgeous. Best though was the food. On our last night we opted for a barbeque cooked by the villas’s house keeper which we had outside on the terrace under the stars. So much food with crab, jumbo prawn, squid, fish, steak, pork, vegetables, two types of rice, and sausages for the kids. Enough for dinner and for them to wrap the leftovers as a picnic on our way home.

I wasn’t sure if to write this review. This villa feels like such a happy home to us and we will be wanting to stay here every time we come to Udon so I hope we don’t find it booked.
