Interaction with guests
Whilst staying at Nakara Villa you will be well looked after by Griang and his wife Pim who live in a small house a short way from the main villa. This means they are both on hand if needed but also sufficiently away from the villa to not disturb your privacy. Griang takes on the role of security guide as well as maintenance if anything needs fixing during your stay. Pim takes on the role of maid and fabulous cook if you are requesting meals from us.

Where to begin? When we arrived, we thought we were in heaven. NAKARA VILLA is so quiet, in a rural setting, the perfect representation of Isan culture. It is not so hard to find, open Google Maps, and it will help you to locate NAKARA...More

How to get there
Nakara is the perfect location, close enough to the city for shop, restaurants and activities to be accessible yet far away enough not to be disturbed by it. Airport pickup, if needed, is provided for all all guests staying more than 2 nights and is a short 20-25 minute drive. We are happy to do quick runs to supermarket for supplies if needed as well as to organise cars and drivers for day trips. Hire cars are available from Udon Thani Airport at reasonable prices though stock can be low so we do advice booking in advance.
