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 stayed at the village Coconut Island resort with the 7 nights all included package from luxury escape deal. I would rate this as a 4.5 stars due to the fact that all of the foods, drinks and services were excellent (5 stars), but the hotel it self was only 4 stars. While staying there for 7 nights I saw some guests (mainly from Russia and China) were very rude to the staffs. They treated the staffs like their own slave. I do not believe that they (those guests) have been educated that staffs at the resorts are there to provide the services. Once you get the service from the staff it is a polite to say thank you and if they need any assistance you should ask in a nice way and never treat the staffs at hotels or resorts like the slave you have at you own countries.
Beautiful location. All inclusive excellent value for money. The food was absolutely delicious. The service and friendliness of staff was second to none. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to go back soon
The food and service absolutely wonderfull.
The room was clean, plenty of room for 2.
The main restaurant and pool are just metres from the beach
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they did everthing with a smile
