A little gem in karon

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Jul 2012
Serene ambiance , beautiful gardens , relaxed atmosphere great food friendly staff .
We loved our stay here . These are great villas It's a really intimate little place 5 mins walk to beach, bars etc Comfy bed . We weren't that keen on karon itself But this place is a little oasis . I highly recommend it
Date of stay: July 2012
Room Tip: Pool villas arent really worth the extra money as the pools outside them are so shallow

We were upgraded from the front village due to renovations. The resort definately was as we expected with very helpfull friendly staff, the spa had great massages and was a fantastic price for the experience. The only small downside as stated is that you have to pay for the wifi and if I was being really picky the breakfast didnt have a great deal of variety but in saying that they are catering for a small amount of people due to the size of the resort. The villas were fantastic well presented and comfortable and the resort is only a short ride to either Karon or Phuket. I would definately stay here again if looking for a quiet and relaxing vibe.

We stayed at The Village Resort and Spa after much research and contemplation as we had never been to Phuket (or anywhere near it) before. I was extremely pleased with the resort and staff. The only down side to the resort is that wifi is not free. It is available for a small fee. The villas were well appointed and either had a great view of the beautifully maintained grounds or, even better, a private swim-up free form pool that meanders and connects to the main pool area with a sunken bar and plenty of room. Unfortunately, it was raining during our trip but the sun lounging decks looked very comfortable and spacious.

One of the best parts about the resort was the staff. They were very helpful and most could at least understand us in english. If not, they would grab someone who did. The spa was great. More expensive than the notoriously cheap places you can find around town but very nice, professional, and relaxing. They even gave us each a 50% off coupon when we arrived.

We enjoyed the private balconies with a table and two chairs, perfect for reading and relaxing come rain or shine. The beach was a short five minute walk away. Karon city was also five minutes (walking) away. Kata beach was a short tuk-tuk ride away as was Patong. I particularly liked being just outside the hustle and bustle of the city itself. The compound was very safe, an absolutely oasis.

I highly recommend The Village Resort & Spa.

Great resort to spend your holiday, super wide rooms with super garden view.
The disadvantages were the rooms dont have free WI-FI internet and lack of variety of food in the breakfast. But still Super hotel!

Was upgraded to this hotel from their sister hotel - The Front Village - due to renovations at that property, so already we were happy... The Village is a lovely resort with beautiful architecture, well-appointed rooms and stunning landscaping. It is an oasis of green which perfectly offsets the blue of the pool. There are plenty of sun-lounges around the pool and cleverly they have cut holes in the decking to allow trees to grow through, adding to the 'jungle' atmosphere and providing some shade.

Rooms were nice, looking a little like a cross between a hacienda and a traditional thai house. They have nice big showers and bathtubs, with all modern conveniences. There are also pool villas; we stayed in a standard villa.

It is about a 5 minute walk into town and a 5 minute walk to the beach. Breakfast was nice, a special touch was a juicing machine with pre-cut fruit so you could mix and match for your own juice. Staff were friendly and helpful, although their prices for tours, etc. were quite expensive so we booked in town.

I would highly recommend this hotel, it is beautiful.

We stayed at this resort in April 2012 and loved it. We would stay again in a heartbeat. The resort is beautiful and very well maintained. We found no mosquito problems (far more in qld). It was very quiet and after Hong Kong and rushing around at home it was just as we needed. Relaxing with all mod cons. The rooms were lovely, clean and our Pool Villa (we got an awesome deal thru our travel agent with free upgrade) was very comfortable and spacious. We had one bedroom with large King bed, walk in wardrobe with vanity table, large bathroom with huge bath (not a very inviting bath though being concrete) Yes the beds are hard but I found it great, as i have bad hips and back. I had to work out a way to roll out of it to get up though! LOL. There were not many people staying in the hotel and it would have been nice to have some more company at happy hour but that is not the fault of the hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and eager to please. They were prompt, curteous and really tried hard to understand our English, even though we were in their country. The buffet breakfast was nice and they cooked to order. It was in a convenient location and would recommend the tailor The royal thai tailor down the road for a suit. (approx $216 for a 3 piece suit in quality fabric). Getting around was easy as you can get a taxi or tuk tuk across the rd (same price). Beach was a 5min walk, although we loved our pool more. Quick to get to the mkts thru the back entrance too. The spa was lovely and we got a 50% discount. Only neg is you have to pay for wifi. You need to purchase a 1hr card that you can use multiple times until it runs out. (100bht) Overall gorgeous, clean, friendly, easy perfect holiday venue.
