“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 10 days in April and it was lovely. The room was clean and so was the resort (shame about the Chinese people hacking up phlegm and spitting in the pool) but that's not the hotels fault. The boats to and fro the mainland are good and always on time. You must go for a walk around the island and go to the viewpoint. We stopped at a beach bar on the way and the staff there were so lovely! Would definitely stay here again. Prices for food and drink are expensive but that's due to being on the island. We also did the boat trip over to the other island which is stunning

We had a lovely Villa with a pool and sea view. Housekeeping service was lacking, shower did not drain properly, pool was not clean upon arrival, you are not to flush toilet paper down the drain waste basket provided but no lid. Only one restaurant open to dine in, some items not available from menu, service in restaurant was poor in the evening, slow to get food and then it was cold.
This is a very quiet Island needs some TLC certainly do not expect a 5 star I'd say a low 4 star at best.

We went there for our honeymoon. We were amazed by the villas and the view. Everything reflected that we were about to enjoy a luxury experience and so we did. The villa consists of a kitchen, living room, bedroom and an open bathroom. They knew we were honeymooners and so they decorated the bedroom. The pool is clean and relaxing though we were a bit close to the villa next door the thing that affects privacy but it can not be considered a negative point. Not a good beach but a big beautiful pool and a good view restaurants and bars. We were welcomed by the person in charge of the activities of the hotel. Good spa and good supermarket but prices a bit high. Overall we were amazed by the view the gardens the villas the whole experience. Also the fact that the hotel is on an island adds a lot to the relaxing experience. Boats to and from the island are constantly working but with different schedule in the evening. We wished to stay more.

I will start my review by saying it was raining the whole time we were here, and it is possible I would have been more generous if the sun had been shining as we would have been on the beach all day and not spending so much time in our "house" or in the restaurant. We came here after staying at the Pullman which was amazing. This hotel was incredibly expensive for what it was and definitely not worth the money. Our "house" was nice but the master bedroom was shabby with dripping air conditioning and peeling paint - the view was lovely though. The downstairs bedroom was swelteringly hot with broken air con which wasn't fixed our whole time there. The restaurant was fine, pretty basic and definitely not a 5 star resort! There is a fun slide into the pool but that's the most positive thing I can say!

My boyfriend and I have just returned from this resort and can honestly say we had the most amazing holiday. We stayed in a jacuzzi suite. Never actually used the jacuzzi as we couldn't turn it on and preferred being by the main pool and beach anyway. Being on the island meant that you had peace and tranquility, but should you wish to explore all you need to do is take the 10 min free boat ride to the pier. There is a fabulous restaurant by the peer that is a lot cheaper than the resort restaurants. Because it was low season the Japanese restaurant and Koko bar were not open but that did not matter as the deli and Tarmirand were great. All the staff were so friendly and full of smiles. Bernie was especially helpful, organising us late check out, restaurant bookings in Phuket town, tourist advice. We had many massages, most of them in Phuket town but one in the resort spa at the Village which was probably the best one. Although it is twice the price of the others we had in town. We used one taxi driver throughout the whole trip, Terry (Eidrid). His number is +66 815979079. He was great, all advice he gave us was always honest and all recommendations he made were perfect. He made many suggestions but never tried to push things on to us. He would do extra little trips to the shops etc for no extra charge. A round trip to Phuket Town was BHT1000. We did spend a lot on taxis, which we may not have had we not stayed on the island, but it was worth it.
There were a few small negatives but mentioning them would just be nitpicking. Only word of advice, the pool water made my blond highlighted hair green. I did not see anyone else with green hair though so I think it was just me that this happened to. We LOVED the water slide! Also did a lovely bike ride around Island and some kayaking. There is another small island nearby that has the most beautiful beach so I would highly recommend going there. There is a boat that goes from 11am and picks you up at 3pm each day for BHT700. The political unrest in Thailand did not effect us at all. Book this trip, it's amazing!! We would love to go again.

Room Tip: We were quite near reception which was good as it's a massive resort! I would not really want to...

The village is off phuket, on a little island on its own. A Thai long-tail boat from the jetty on phuket to either the front or back pier (depending on the tide) of the resort in about 5 - 10 minutes. Thats when you step into your private paradise! The service was friendly and efficient and villa was well-fitted and comfortable. They had lounge pools, beach front real estate, water slides, tennis courts, and everything that could have made it just another one of those noisy family beach resorts but the village somehow managed to still retain that relaxing peaceful atmosphere that you travel to phuket for. The only thing is that the waters are not crystal clear (like it is for some of the other neighbouring islands) because the coconut island beachfront where the sand banks due to the currents. It is still emerald green and clean though, its just a bit of sand swimming around in it. we still had a great time by the beach! And if you really want to dip in clear waters, theres a boat from the resort to more famous neighbours like phi phi or james bond island. Its essentially the same water (the islands are all around each other) just that the current sweeps the sand on the sea bed towards coconut island and gives the impression that the water is a little murkier there. In any case there are big beautiful pools right in front of the beach so you can stay in chlorinated comfort while enjoying a beer and the sea breeze. And just in case you click on this review and read right up to the end, the SPA is AMAZING! We had a hot oil head massage followed by a scrub and then a thai massage and even my hubby (spas are not his "thing") absolutely loved it. We went back again on the last day. Our masseuse were Sarah and Ta. They are THE BEST. Not even kidding. Do try the hydrobath too. Gosh... I'm getting a little depressed now, I miss the place!

Room Tip: Request for a room near the main building as the ones on the outskirt are REALLY far.
