Located on 500 metres of private beach on tiny Koh Maphrao island just off the coast of Phuket in Thailand, The Village Coconut Island is a relaxed and friendly resort of traditional architecture, towering palms and exotic gardens. Koh Maphrao is a little slice of paradise, undeveloped and home mainly to coconut plantations. Yet it is close to all the nightlife and amenities of Phuket, being just a short water taxi ride away.
There are 10 peaceful treatment rooms at The Village Coconut Island’s spa, all located around a hydrotherapy pool. Indulge in a Thai herbal compress massage, sip aromatic teas around the pool, or sweat out the day in the sauna and steam room.
Accommodation at The Village Coconut Island consists of beachfront villas, pool villas (some with sea view) and Jacuzzi suites. The beachfront villas are two-storey buildings with up to five bedrooms, their own tropical gardens and immediate access to the beach; the pool villas have their own infinity swimming pools and terraces; and the Jacuzzi suites have whirlpool tubs and are dotted around the beautifully landscaped gardens.
There’s lots of watery fun to be had at The Village Coconut Island, from the huge waterslides and infinity pools to the water sports – including kayaks and paddle boards – down by the pristine private beach. You can also learn to sail in the quiet bay, enjoy beach games on the sand, or head out on an organised excursion, including elephant treks and temple tours.
Among the dining options on offer are traditional Thai specialities; local meats cooked on an open grill; light meals and cocktails in the beach bar; and Japanese and Asian fusion flavours in the Koko restaurant, with stunning views of the bay and Andaman Sea.
