My sister and I spent 4 magical days at the The Village Coconut Island in June 09. On arrival we were greeted by the genuinely gracious and smiling staff…. and their kindness and attention to making our holiday as best as it could be continued throughout our stay.
We were blown away by the décor and incredible comfort of our beachfront two bedroom villa. Waking each morning to a stunning sunrise viewed through large bedroom windows set the tone for the rest of the day – blissful, relaxing, and a lovely peacefulness so often dreamed of but mostly elusive. Lazing in the private pool of our villa while enjoying the stunning views out to sea of Phang Nga islands was a highlight.
The cleverness of this resort is in its location. A 5 minute speedboat ride takes you away from the faster pace of mainland Phuket to an island paradise where the minute we stepped onto the pier at The Village any anxieties evaporated. Yet when the mood determined, we were easily able to commute to the mainland for sightseeing, shopping, or dinning.
We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at resort and found all menus delicious and of good variety. The Vietnamese chef brings his own unique style to the menu - a favourite was the prawns wrapped in bacon accompanied by curried banana. Restaurant prices were surprisingly good value, not at all exorbitant like some other 5 stars.
Our return flight to Sydney was late evening, and we were thrilled that The Village offered us our villa for as long as we needed that day (which in fact was until 7pm!!) – such generosity really added to the specialness we enjoyed at The Village. A big thank you to Thomas and all of the wonderful staff…….. we are counting the days until we return.
