“A perfect holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2011

We are just back from a short stay at The Village - I wish we could have stayed longer! A beautiful location, peaceful resort, stunning views and friendly staff!
We stayed in a jacuzzi suite which was ideal for a couple, however next time we will bring the children and opt for a pool villa, It had a small kitchenette and fridge, lovely bathroom with free standing bath and rain shower, and a small jacuzzi in the garden (perfect location for a pre dinner G&T!).
The shared infinity pool was lovely and we had it to ourselves a lot of the time anyway. Great to be able to order a cockatil from the bar and relax on a lounger looking out to sea!
Food was all excellent too - authentic Thai curries and salads, and a decent choice at breakfast.
We took a Hobie out for a sail on our last morning which was good fun. Didn't have time to try the spa on this visit but will be back!!

This was out second time staying at the Village. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Villa on the beach. The kids loved having a private pool at the Villa. The food was excellent, the Deli Pizza was our favourite along with the traditional Thai food and fantastic service provided by all.

This was our first stay at the Village, but it will not be our last. When we arrived by private speed boat, we were greeted by wonderful smiling staff and at their stunning reception over looking the beach and turquoise sea. The trip only got better when we arrived in our stunning 3 bedroom beach front villa (without a doubt the best villa we had ever been in). For most of the stay we relaxed around the villa pool whilst enjoying the Village's great in villa dinning service, but we did venture to the main facilities to have a world class massage, followed by a go on the new slides (even for adults they are great). Being on an island meant we were away from the loud and sometimes overpowering life of Phuket, but when we visited to shop and enjoy the nightlife, it was easy, fast and fun to get there on the speed boat.

When writing reviews as a group, we normally highlight a few of the problems that are expected on most holidays, but this time, nothing could be faulted. The only piece of advice we can give is for people to go there and see it for themselves.

Thanks to all at the Village for an all time great holiday

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights at The Village in late April. We cannot praise this place highly enough.

From the moment we stepped off the boat, we were treated to exceptional and friendly service. The staff member that met us at the boat, Fern, made sure that we were comfortable with a cool drink and wet towelettes while she checked us in. She then showed us to our Villa, which already had the airconditioner on to cool the room for us, and made sure that we were aware of all the services available to us. Each time we needed something, either Fern or Thomas in reception were able to help us with their outstanding English skills. Service was 5 star.

Our 2 bedroom Villa was immaculate and the private pool was a normal size domestic swimming pool. The Villa was the size of a townhouse and had full kitchen facilities, two bathrooms and aesthetically pleasing furnishings. The ocean view from the main bedroom was stunning.

The gym facilities were great, with new equipment and airconditioning. We also borrowed the bikes and rode around the island each day. There was also two infinity pools and two waterslides, which weren't just used by the children on the island. ;)

Lastly, the food was exceptional. They have a great range of cuisine and food, and everything we ate was simply delicious. I think it was the best food we ate in Thailand, and whilst a little more expensive on the mainland, certainly still cheap compared to Western prices.

There is construction on the island, but inside the Villa you could barely hear it and we had no problem with any noise. We also got a 'Construction discount' on services, which was appreciated.

This would be a perfect place for couples, to hold a wedding and for families.

This was our first time to Coconut Island and was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We went with friends that made it extra special and the staff was very very friendly. The food was excellent with a wide variety and the swimming pools and the slides were great fun and perfect for the kids aswell as the adults. The villa we stayed in was fantastic and the views we had were breathtaking. The only sad thing I would say however is that it went far far too quick and before we knew it we were back home.

The only thing to mar this holiday was my dislike of long-distance flight. However, once I got over that one (Singapore Airlines made it bearable) our stay on the Island was tranquility itself. The beach-front villa, the excellent food and drink and the friendliness of the staff made our two weeks shoot by. The resort's situation is a good compromise - out of the way of the crowds, but only a taxi-ride away from Phuket town. When I can brace myself again for the purgatory that is long-distance flight, we'll be back.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a beach-front villa.

Just returned to Singapore from a relaxing weekend break to Coconut Island. The villa we stayed in was beautiful with incredible views across the bay and I had a wonderful massage at the spa - they even let me choose oils for the massage that would help with my sunburn!

My only negative comment would be that there is still a bit of building work on the island left to be completed - including one of the piers which can make getting off the boat an adventure!

But all in all a fantastic place to unwind and get away from it all....

Dear BritInAsia2011,

Thank you so much for your review. I am really pleased that you were so happy with your villa and the island, and I will certainly pass on your kind comments about your Spa treatment to our Spa Therapists. I do hope that the small amount of remaining construction did not inconvenience you - our final phase (including our new back pier) will be completed shortly and we do hope that we will have the pleasure of seeing you at The Village again.

Best wishes,
