Nakara Villa is an authentic Thai style luxury pool villa nestled in the tranquility and serenity of Isan's rice fields. Just 25 minutes from Udon Thani airport, the villa's two large bedroom suites, living/dining room, double kitchen, infinity-edge swimming pool and extensive gardens make this ideal for that much needed relaxing break or long term home for a family.

Breakfast is now included in your booking with choice of Asian/Continental. A full Thai dinner service is available on request.

The space
Nakara Villa is a 2-bedroom luxury pool villa, nestled in the peace and tranquility of the rice fields of Isan and is available on an exclusive, self-catered basis.

Located on 36,000m2 of its own land, the villa offers enough space to feel close to nature whilst still offering easy access to the cities of Udon Thani and Nong Khai (the city center is 20 minutes by car; Udon Thani airport is 25 minutes and Nong Khai is 40 minutes). Most of the land is given over to organic rice farming providing the rice for all of the meals we prepare.

The Villa has been designed to retain exterior elements of traditional Thai architecture whilst providing a modern, comfortable interior. Rooms are spacious with most using bi-fold and sliding doors to open-up the inside and link it to the outside so the sense of peace that comes with being in nature never leaves you.

Included in your booking (for bookings made after 19th August) we now offer a choice of Continental (Tea, coffee, orange juice, choice of cereal, eggs your style with sausages, bread basket including croissants, fresh fruit) or Asian (congee or other Asian breakfast dish replaces eggs & Sausage). Breakfast can be served anywhere in the villa including in bed if requested. Extra guests over 4 people will incur a charge of 250 bhat per person though kids 7 and younger eat free.

A dinner service is also available if requested. We do a full Thai dinner (typically 1 soup, 3 dishes, choice of rice, fresh fruit and soft drinks) for 600bhat per person (Children 7 or younger again eat free with their parents). Alternatively a full a la carte menu available in the villa with dishes costing between 95 baht and 150 baht. Isan food, our specialty, is an absolute deliciously cuisine and is increasingly the default choice across all of Thailand now for locals as well as visitors.

There is air-conditioning and wi-fi throughout and security is provided by a on-site security guard (Griang) who lives in a separate hut that is close enough to ensure protection but sufficiently far away to ensure privacy.

We also offer a daily maid service to clean the villa with bed sheets changed twice a week. Laundry and ironing is also available though we do ask that you give the maid a suitable tip for this service.

Room by room, the villa consists of:

A living / dining space on the ground floor which is 60m2 with bi-fold doors that open-up on one side to the patio with outdoor seating. The living area has seating for 6-8 people along with flat screen TV and access to Truevision Satellite packages. The dining space has seating for 6 around a table made from two authentic Chinese Mahjong tables.

Two large double bedroom suites of 60m2 and 40m2, each with a traditional Thai open roof extending the sense of space. Both also have wooden floor boards with doors and windows designed to link the indoor space with the outdoor space. Bathrooms are large and open; each has both a shower and a free-standing bath.

A Buddha Room / study offering 20m2 of a very unique space for meditation or a perfect place for computer use or even writing that novel.

The Buddha room opens up to a 23m2 balcony with views across the fields. The balcony also has a 6- seat dining table and full sized umbrella for al-fresco dining.

A 40m2 indoor / outdoor kitchen that includes modern cupboards and shelves, a double door fridge with ice maker. Toaster and coffee percolator are provided. For cooking the indoor kitchen has a built in microwave and small electric hob sitting on a kitchen island whilst the outside kitchen has both a full sized gas hob and a full sized gas BBQ.

There is also a 45m2 infinity pool, including shallow kids area, that allows for both cooling off or 17m laps for those wanting to exercise. The pool has it’s own sun deck with pool furniture and full sized sun umbrella.

In the adjacent villa, there is a private SPA which can be used for massages on request; something we highly recommend given the low price and excellent quality of massages available in Isan!

Out of the Villa's grounds, 800m2 have been turned into a landscaped garden, including two KOI ponds with waterfalls, assuring plenty of space to relax and unwind.

No one is yet to come to Nakara Villa and not fallen in love with the Villa, its surroundings and the experience we offer. So, do not hesitate and book today to re-discover yourself along with a very special part of Thailand that is still somewhat off the tourist routes.

Where you’ll be

Udon Thani, Thailand

Nakara Villa sits on an Island between two small rivers with the rest of the island given to farming. The ultimate time to be here is in October just before the harvest when the house literally sits on a sea of green as the rice plants reaches their maximum height.

Whilst this provides the peace and tranquility the house was designed for, this does not mean that it is too remote. Udon Thani centre is only a 20 minute drive though they are Tesco's, 7-11 and fresh markets close by. within a few minutes there are a number of traditional road side shops that offer the basics at very low prices. The main roads running North to Nong Khai as well as the Udon Thani ring road are just a few minutes away.

Udon Thani as a city has built up over the last few years and now boasts a modern mall with cinema, ice ring, bowling and department stores. It also has ubiquity in coffee shops and gyms. There are several parks, numerous restaurants offering everything from cheap traditional fare through to gourmet and Japanese. The airport is an easy 28 minutes away.

There are also many interesting sites from the must-see Lotus Lake and Unesco Heritage site at Ban Chiang. Nong Khai is a pleasant 40 minute drive away and offers a full market, aquarium, Buddha park, temples as well as sunset cruises on the Mekong River.

Laos is also a short and accessible drive away.

There is a short 9 hole golf course within 15 minutes drive, numerous options for horse riding and even a world class fishing lake, archery classes and several taekwondo schools.

Best of all though is the great ISAN food which is now recognized as the best that Thailand has to offer.

Hi! We are David and Shanana Johnson. We have been working and living in Thailand for several years now and I have fallen for the grace, natural beauty and charm of the North East. We built a villa just outside Udon Thani. It is our home, our children's home and we hope one day their children's home too. We don't always get to stay there though as we are still busy, working people but we want to ensure it is always full of noise and activity so we rent it out to family, friends and like minded travelers. We too are also travelers and grown to love unique little secrets rather than the big hotels and we have designed our villa to be, we hope, a little wonderful secret find for those who are looking for just such a thing.

During your stay

We mainly work outside Thailand and use the 2nd adjacent villa for 6-8 weeks a year. When we are not there we can still be contacted via Line and mobile to help with any issues, including translating, or organizing any trips. When we are there we are quiet and discreet though there is always an open offer of a sunset gin and tonic.

The villa is kept safe for us by Griang who is our security guard and gardener though can also act as a driver on request . He lives with Pim in a pair of huts sufficiently away from the main Villa not to be intrusive but with a good view over the access road to keep you safe. Pim is an excellent Thai cook and can provide occasional cooking services along with maid and ironing if requested in advance. Both will ensure that the villa is kept in a good working order during your stay though there are small charges for additional services such as driving, cooking and ironing.
