As the only resort on Phuket’s private Coconut Island, the Village provides a welcome respite from the crowds of Thailand’s most popular beach destination. For the gorgeous scenery without the hustle and bustle of the main island, check into the Village on Coconut Island, located just five minutes across Phang Nga Bay via a free, 24/7 water taxi. With 236 rooms, this private island hotel feels more like a small and peaceful, well, village than a boutique hotel.
Bed and Bath
The contemporary suites and villas (from 700 square feet) range from one to five bedrooms and enhance the sense of seclusion with such features as private pools and garden terraces. Many of the accommodations feature private pools and garden terraces — perfect for those who want to make like Robinson Crusoe — and unlike main island resorts with neighbors on each side, the Village has a pristine beach backed by the island’s namesake coconut palms and a jungle interior all to itself.
There’s plenty to keep guests busy. The main swimming pool features a lazy river and slides that kids love. Parents can also opt for some alone time by checking the little ones into the on-site kids club. Activities, both free and for a fee, are offered by the dozen; choices include yoga and Thai boxing at the gym, exploring the island by mountain bike and an array of water sports, from diving and snorkeling to daytrips to neighboring isles aboard long-tail boats. End the day with a meal at the resort’s beachfront Tamarind Restaurant, or opt for room service.
In the Area
There’s plenty of organized activities on the island; begin with a trip to one of the floating seafood restaurants between the Village and Laem Hin, where the day’s catch is literally plucked out of the water just beneath your feet. Adventurous types can enjoy a free, two-hour sailing clinic aboard the Hobie Cat, which runs right off the private beach. Further afield, explore the natural beauty of Maya Bay on a day cruise – this idyllic snorkeling destination was the location of hit movie, The Beach.
How to Get There
We were here for four night with our kids in their late teens. There is very little we would have to fault the resort on. The accommodation, facilities, staff, bars, restaurants and the island itself were all perfect. The floating restaurants at the back of the island are very special. The staff at resort reception will let you know how to get to to them.
Me and my friends visited you resort last may..it was our first time travelling abroad and we were kinda scared but thankfully you have a very kind and friendly staff,especially that giy named abner...he was very accomodating and answers all our questions amd queries patiently though it was late at night already...i hope to comeback again soon and hopefully meet the same guy abner or to be welcomed by a frontdesk officer same as him.
Thank you and Godbless.
My partner and I had the most wonderful time at the resort. The staff were incredible and the room was lovely. We had a wonderful time, it was my partners first trip overseas and we would go to this resort again. They were accomodating when we had issues with the original dates we booked and moved our dates to suit.
The only issue is the pricing for the meals if you don’t go all inclusive can be very expensive.
Definitely would go again, absolutely wonderful
We travelled as 4 families with kids ranging from 3 to 13. Each Villa was very spacious, comfortable and well air conditioned. The villa’s do need a bit of TLC, but it did not detract from the brilliant experience we all had. The staff make the place. The guys at the activity desk and the team at the bar and restaurants were absolutely superb. Nothing was too much trouble. The facilities are in good shape. Great pools and beach activities. The spa was great too. Would highly recommend this resort for families with younger kids and looking for a great restful time away. Also would recommend doing the all-inclusive option.
We stayed through Luxury Escapes in a 1bedroom pool villa. On arrival our pool was dirty and remained that way during our stay. The bedroom opened into a large open bathroom area but as you have to place your toilet paper into the rubbish bin the smell very soon became over powering. There was no shelf in the shower to accomodate soap or shampoo and half the grouting in the tiles was missing. There was only 1 pillow per person and the room was only cleaned every 3 days. And even then the bed was only top and tailed and the pillows weren't even turned over little own changed.It is a large confusing resort to navigate that a map would of been helpful especially in the first few days or some signposting to indicate the direction of villas. We tried the buffet 1 night arriving at the start only to find the meat was already congealed, most dishes were cold and don't even expect to find a soup spoon. After that we ordered from the beach bar and the food was plentiful and hot. The breakfast buffet had plenty on offer but again l don't like my food sitting in the sun drying out and l would appreciate a cook, sorry can't call him a chef, who at least looked interested in cooking eggs without the addition of shells. The staff in general were helpful. When isolated on an island l think the use of the ferry should be included rather than an extra cost. The hotel offers no entertainment other than on a Thursday night. This was not my idea of a luxury escape but others might of had a better experience
