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 loved our stay at The Village Coconut Island Resort. It was a fun place to stay. Quite hilly so anyone with mobility issues might struggle getting around. We were on a package all inclusive. The food was 5 star absolutely amazing & all drinks were available including wine. The accommodation was clean & neat about 3 star. The staff we loved & they loved looking after us. Thank you to these outstanding young people who enhanced our enjoyment at the resort- Joy at breakfast, Jack in the bar & Lodi, Micole at the Italian restaurant, Alan, Bert & Aumaim. Thank you for looking after us. Would highly recommend for families with the inclusive package as it was amazing value.
The staff are absolutely fantastic!
As soon as we arrived while checking in Eyn, our lovely receptionist brought us cold towels and fresh orange juice.
The awesome events team Salsa, Andrey & Nee kept us updated with our day trips and we even showed them how to play handball.
Daisy, Hazel, Joy & Allen our amazing waitress'/waiters always made sure we were looked after.
Pae, U Nud and Kyle were fantastic bartenders and made the best cocktails!
Tom, the GM was very down to earth and chats with the visitors.
Beautiful place! Felt like we became family while there. Can't wait to go back!
We just come back after spending 10 days at the Village resort Coconut Island, It was outstanding. The rooms were very comfortable with every amenities you could need, Luxury Escape all inclusive package is the way to go. All the staff were exceptional but a few stood out like Alan, Joy good luck with your baby) Hazel, Honey Andrew, Jovi, and the ever entertaining LODI who got other staff members to join the dancing in the evening he is a real asset to your organisation. All staff went out of there way to attend to your every need. The restaurants were fantastic with a wide range of food which was delicious and very appetising. On the whole there was nothing to grumble about. I would definetly recommend this resort and we will return.
We had an inclusive stay and the food and drinks were fab. Our suite was also lovely, very spacious and jacuzzi spa outside. Unfortunately that’s where the positives stop. The pools and slides were ageing and very grubby, it didn’t help that so much sand would get dragged into the pool. If you are after gorgeous white sands and blue sea, this resort is far from it! Even on the sister island this is ruined by litter every where. One of the biggest turn offs for this resort was the amount of people smoking. People were smoking in the restaurants and then you could be laid there on a sun bed and the people next to you were smoking. Massive put off!
Great location. Suites with spa, very quite and peaceful. Staff at restaurants very friendly and attentive. We were met at the boat by Richard , Teddy Bear and Chris, they were very helpful and informative and kind. Alex who runs the Italian Restaurant was great, also his staff. Andrew, Hazel, Micole. Breakfast was wonderful with the girls, always fun. Thanks Joy, Janice, Honey and trainees.
Only negative was the access to the pool, not enough room to walk around. The restaurants are near the sea, wonderful views. Most suites are up the hill, so if you have a disability it would be hard to get up the wooden ramp, no rails to hang on to.
