My husband and I were staying at Kata Beach before meeting up my parents for the Village Coconut. We came across this place on booking.com when searching for villa. It was the best stay during the three weeks holiday we had in Asia. The resort is beautiful without fences and very green with lots of beautiful flora and fauna.
We booked for two bedrooms seaview villa but were upgraded to a three bedrooms villa on arrival. Upon checked in, my husband displayed the biggest grin on his face, so is my aging parents. The villa is fantastic with nice seaview, private pool, verandah, well equipped kitchen. Everything you need is there. The master bedroom is vast! The second bedroom too has its own verandah. Every room is ensuite and has a king size bed and TV.
The pool is clean and well position to have the seaview. There are deck chairs by the pool for sun tanning. There are also table and chairs for outdoor dining. Apart from breakfast, we cooked almost every meal. We went to shop in Tesco before arrival. We also went to the village next to the resort for some fish and vegetables. It was a good move as the resort restaurant has little to offer and we didn't really want to leave the peace to dine in town.
The beach at the resort is all right on calm days. But we mostly swim in the pool. We took the courtesy boat to nearby Rang Yao Island which is great with white sandy beach and corals. There are virtually no one there, miles away from crowded Kata beach which we didn't like that much. The watersport is limited but adequate. We ended up spending a lot of time talking and relaxing in the villa which was what we need.
The villas are for sale. They are currently constructing more villas at the back of the seaview villas. So privacy is not that great at times though there is no noise. Also, between villas especially the newer ones where the plants are not mature enough to provide screen between villas, you can see neighbours activity in the house. We have our curtains down at the side. The biggest problem is the mosquitoes. We sprayed the whole house before bed but next day they came back through some holes in the house? There is also WIFI in the villas but it is slow and not reliable. Also, the villas has no intercom or phone, so upon arrival, the reception has asked us if we like to have a Thai mobile phone which we paid 200 bahts for the calling time so we can call the reception. It was really unnecessary as it wasn't much walking from villa to the reception anyway.
If you need somewhere quiet with seaview to spend with family in a nice villa which is easy to get to without a long airport and boat transfer. This is the place. The island is called MangPhroa island. It is half an hour from the airport and 10 minutes water taxi to this island. It does feel like a castaway at times, but with luxury.
