I am back at The Village again!! I have stayed here 3 times before, and after not visiting for 2 years, alot has changed! There are now even more beautiful villas and suites, more swimming pools (and even water slides!!) and a bigger and better variety of food!
I love coming to Coconut Island because of the relaxed atmosphere, but I know at the same time that everything is being taken care of behind the scenes, and people are on hand to deal with your every need!
The staff are so friendly and accommodating, and I feel completely at home here. After a lazy morning by the pool, I ate lunch in the Thai restaurant with beautiful beach views. Every item on the menu sounds so good, I hope I have time to try them all! Head Chef Lee also has some brilliant recommendations! From fresh seared tuna salad to curried noodle soups... iced coffees to mojitos - these guys have it covered!
I spent the afternoon relaxing at the brand new Spa. The Spa Manager Angel gave me a tour of the new facilities, and then I relaxed in the hydro pool and soaked up the sun. At 3.30 I booked myself and two friends into a Thai Boxing lesson, which was hilarious! We let out all our energy, and were actually kicking and punching pretty well by then end! a word of warning - if you have sunburnt legs, don't participate in the leg kicks - they are a little painful!
This evening I will be hitting happy hour and then dining at the famous Laem Hinn Seafood Restaurant, very conveniently located at the Island's jetty. I have been numerous times before, and this place is a real secret! Curried crab and stir friend morning glory - huge portions and the best I have tasted!
I could carry on writing for ages... but I need to get on and enjoy all this place has to offer!
I would most definitely recommend a stay at Coconut Island. Do not be put off by the negative reviews - I am not sure where their complaints have come from!
