PROMOTION: 

THE MOST LUXURIOUS WAY TO VISIT THE RED LOTUS LAKE

To book: just email us at nakaravillas@gmail with your preferred dates


The Red Lotus Lake is often described as one of the most beautiful sites in Thailand; with a over one million flowers it combines the beauty of a stunning flower show with the serenity of a lake.  Whilst the pictures are themselves impressive, they do not capture the experience of seeing it for yourself.

Many people visiting Thailand head to Bangkok and the beaches in the South whilst never making it to the North East and the opportunity to spend a morning on the lake.  To give more people the opportunity to see this, we have put together a special luxury, all inclusive package to go give people the ultimate way to visit the lake as well as experience true Isan hospitality and food.

This package is fully inclusive and guided meaning that you do not need worry about anything once you land at Udon Thani International Airport - a short 45 minute flight from Bangkok. 

This includes:

- 2 nights accommodation at Nakara Villa for up to 4 adults in two large bedroom suites (60m2 & 40m2).  Children can stay be added in for free if sleeping on Sofa Beds in the bedrooms suites and children 7 and under can eat for free.

- 1 day guided tour to the Lotus Lake with the option of also visiting the nearby UNESCO heritage site at Ban Chiang.  This includes all entry & boat prices, transportation, petrol costs and tour guide

- 1 free 90 minute massage per person (Aroma or Thai traditional) 

- A full Thai/Isan Dinner on both nights of your stay cooked to your specific requirements

-Asian or Continental Breakfast on both mornings of your stay

Boat hire at the Red Lotus Lake

Visitors to the lake can’t see the clusters of water lilies from the shore. To view the flowers in all their glory, you need to take one of the boats that travel out into the far reaches of the lake. The cost of the boat hire varies depending on the type of boat and the length of the tour you opt for though is nominal in cost.   The shorter route takes approximately 60 minutes and the longer route around 90 minutes. We always advise taking the longer route which takes you to the very center of the lake.  Once you are in the boat it takes at least 15 minutes to cross the lake to see where the flowers are at their best.

There are channels where the boats cut through the flowers and there are also designated stops where the driver will turn off the engine and you have the chance to pose for photos. The smaller boats have the advantage of being able to go further into the blooms. The lake is shallow and in most places has a depth of only two or three feet (60-100cm.) Although the water isn’t deep, boats do carry life jackets and you may be asked to wear one.

THE LEGEND BEHIND THE LAKE

The Isaan region of north-east Thailand is an area that is rich in folklore. One story tells of a tragic love triangle involving a princess called Nang Ai and two of her suitors, Prince Phadaeng and Prince Pangkhee. It’s an epic story that involves magical kingdoms, reincarnation, love, rejection and revenge. According to one part of the tale, Prince Phadaeng wanted to avenge the death of Nang Ai and a fierce battle ensued with an army of mythical nagas. The serpent army flooded the scene of the battle resulting in the formation of Nong Han Lake. There are a number of variations of the legend, but the story is well-known to Isaan residents and has also been made into a movie. This all adds to the romantic imagery of the lake and makes it even more of an attraction to Thai visitors.
