I stayed here for a couple of nights in April with my wife and baby son and it was very nice and relaxing. Although there was building work going on to extend the village, it did not affect our stay at all.

There are a couple of things they do need to do though and they are outdoor showers near the pool to `wash down´ your feet and skin before entering and exiting the pool. This would be a benefit to the pool and resort as a whole.

Umbrellas on the beach. We were there sitting on the beach when suddenly a group of 8 people came across and asked a member of staff for some chairs or sunbeds to sit in the shade. So this member of staff literally moved 6 sunbeds all around me because I was under a tree (with my baby son). If there were umbrellas around they could have sat evenly on the beach, not on top of me. The thing was there were half a dozen little elephant statues right next to me to put umbrellas in, but they were unused.

And of course being Thailand we have to learn to speak `Thai-ish´ which is sometimes a challenge to communicate but the staff were all very pleasant.

Lovely little place to get away!

Dear Lord_Andy,

Thank you very much for your review of The Village. We are very glad that you were able to relax, and that you enjoyed your stay with us.

We welcome feedback from our guests, and are very grateful to you for your comments regarding the showers and the shade on the beach. Most of our private pool villas benefit from outdoor washing facilities, and these will be arranged for the communal infinity pools as soon as our construction work is completed. I have also communicated your comments regarding the beach umbrella situation to my staff, and this will be taken care of promptly.

We are very glad that you chose to spend your time with us at The Village, and we very much hope that you will return in the future.

Best wishes,
The Management, The Village Coconut Island

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.
