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
There was just one downside,the fact you had to go on a ferry trip to get off the island.On it the food was very good,the suite was excellent.We had a superb stay and loved every minute.The taxis on land side are expensive,get a number or an app it will be nearly half the price.Make sure you go to the night market lots of bargains as long as you haggle.Also go to Phuket Central ,fabulous shops and street food all available.
I just got back with my wife to enjoy a few days at the village coconut island resort.
The dinner was perfect, the rooms were clean and tidy and the service was excellent.
Congratulations, you are now our favourite getaway by far. Just awesome.
Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights, lovely laid back atmosphere, real chance to unwind and recharge your batteries.
We had a pool villa with a garden view which was beautiful. Room was very big and clean, however could of done with a thorough clean as dust and cobwebs about. Food was amazing and made fresh from the menu you ordered. The staff are very friendly and helpful always asking if you want a drink. We upgraded to all inclusive once at the resort purely because it’s miles from anywhere, and need a boat trip every time you need off the island, once off the island it will cost 400-500 baht (£10-£12) to get to Phuket town for food and drink. This was the reason we upgraded to the all inclusive offer, also drinks are a little expensive on the resort, as they charge 10% service charge also 7% vat on top of all listed prices on everything on the island. Overall we definitely would recommend it here and we will be coming back.
First time in Phuket and chose to stay at this resort and was definitely worth it. Staff and management were great, friendly and helpful. Beach was clean, pools were fantastic and my kids especially loved the water slide. Three restaurants on the island (excluding the floating restaurants at the back of the island, which are not part of the resort) who catered very well for all choices and the breakfasts were especially great. Surprised my wife with the dinner on the beach experience and they made it incredible, as the setting, ambience, food and service were just fantastic. We booked the 2 bedroom pool villa which was very good apart from the shower tiles could use a bit of refreshing but apart from that the room was great. We did have an issue with one of the toilets but after a phone call to reception that issue was quickly resolved. We would love to go back...Pillay family (Australia)
I stayed at 3 Bedroom beachfront Villa 11 from Feb 2 to Feb 9th.
This was one of the best vacations we had and we have been around the world. Here is why:
People: The staff at the resort were very friendly anywhere and for any need. Always with a smile and ready to help. The manager - Tom - is a really cool guy. He was very helpful and honest on recommending type of activities for our family; personally made couple of reservations for us; and even offered one of the resort boats for a special price (cheaper than anything you can find out there).
Location: To get to the Island, there is about 35min ride to the pier and a boat picks you up to the resort. It is a really nice, secluded, not as busy as some of the famous beaches (e.g., kata, karon). For us it was the perfect balance of Island and being close to the mainland. There is a little store with limited choices, but then in the resort I wasn’t looking for shopping experience. There is small Muslim village... friendly people but not much to see there. There is one local restaurant that looks very unappetizing, but if you can pass that, the food is fantastic... it’s like grandma cooking... and very cheap.
Villas: Look exactly like in the photos on the Website. Big, beautiful, clean and comfy. I’d recommend the beachfront villas with pools, as the view and experience is great. Some of the paint could use a little touch up in some corners, but not a problem or game changer.
Restaurant: great food in all three. Breakfast is what you’d expect and everything you can ask for. One recommendation would be to offer more mix of fruits.
The pool: nice and clean pools in the main area and for the villas. Water temperature was perfect. The food and drink services all over.
Note: we did have couple of gecko’s in the room, but then you are in a tropical island and leaving in Villas. They are not harmful and actually are good to catch mosquitoes. When we called, they came and got rid of them. So, don’t be afraid and enjoy!
