Travel Experience

Privacy, comfort, service and style unite in the heart of nature at Green Gecko. Set in extensive grounds, with a private swimming pool, this traditional rural retreat beckons you to relax. This Thai villa is set among flowering gardens and plantations of tropical trees, sugar cane, eucalyptus and cassava, and is in close proximity to our rice paddies.

Responsibility

Green Gecko they aim to show that sustainable, responsible tourism may be applied effectively to the benefit of both the locals themselves as well as that of the guests. The team that constructed Green Gecko was comprised entirely of local villagers, predominantly from the two villages in the immediate vicinity of the house - Baan Um Jaan and Baan Koke Lante. They maximise local employment, not only to demonstrate the skills of the local villagers and to provide a showcase for various craftsmen, but also to generate a direct income for them within their own neighbourhood as part of our support of sustainable, responsible tourism.

Business Case

Green Gecko was both built and operated by local families, who then use local produce and services in the day to day running of the villa. All revenues are distributed within the local community, and they aim to support reforestation, waste disposal programmes and education wherever possible.
