We were greeted with a warm smile by our driver on arrival at the Phuket International Airport, 40 minutes later, we arrived at the Laem Hin Pier.
The Village Coconut Island is set on a secluded island (Maphrao Yai Island) of Laem Hin Pier which is located on east side of Phuket Island among lush tropical rain forest which was surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and two well sized pools and restaurants along side (The Deli & The Tamarind café) facing a calm beech with a constant gentle sea breeze.
After a short ferry and buggy ride, we arrived at the lobby, front desk was very helpful, we were offered a Jacuzzi room, however there are 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom villas with private swimming pool available and there are more villas still under construction.
The rooms and bathroom were a good size well lit and clean, wardrobes are large, Jacuzzi at the back was clean, and the mini kitchen was a bonus.
There is a small kiosk near the spa that sells soft drinks, water or snacks, as there are no shopping facilities on the island.
Executive chef Lee and his staff provide an excellent level of service well beyond the stars acredited to this resort, the best hospitality, warmest welcome from the very beginning, food and drinks were reasonably priced always well-prepared, consistent and good quality.
Although Lee started his training in fine French cuisine, he is also experienced in spicy Thai and other South –East Asian dishes and always approachable for a quick chat or advice.
Trips to Patong Beech, Patong City or anywhere else are quite expensive and prices are controlled by the taxi service at Laem Hin Pier, buggies and ferry service to and from the resort and are on a 24/7 basis, however always check schedules at front desk as the staff are very hard working and require breaks late at night or early morning.
The resort has provided beach options of non-motorized beach sport free of charge- like kayaking, sailing etc. They also have instructors on hand who will teach or assist you.
Thanks to Chef Lee, assistant Ken, Sun and Hugh and all the staff at The Village Coconut Island, we totally enjoyed our stay without any problems, made new friends from Thailand, Australia, Canada and the USA, we will be back for sure.
