Amazing! Best resort I have ever stayed at!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Mar 2013
I cannot speak highly enough of this resort. The photos on their website are spot on, pool is amazing, spa was excellent, room was absolutely incredible. I recommend getting the pool access room. The staff, wow, they are so nice and helpful. We ate at the restaurant, by the pool, room service and it was all great food. The location was good as well, far enough away that it is quiet and peaceful yet it is only a 5min walk to Karon beach. Highly recommend staying at the village resort and spa! We will definitely be back.

We stayed here for the second time and loved it just as much as the first visit. The staff were waiting to greet us at the front when we arrived and welcomed us home.
Such a great place to unwind and relax. Just love this place. Close enough to the restaurants and bars in Karon but far enough away to shut out the world!
It is a boutique resort with a spa on location. Try it for yourself and enjoy.

I have just returned from 10 nights at The Village Resort & Spa and must say we can't wait to go back. It was a tropical haven of peace & tranquility with friendly & accomodating staff. Small things like remembering how you want your eggs cooked at breakfast time mean so much when it comes to making you feel special. The hotel doesn't have the stuffiness you find in 5 star resorts, it was relaxed but attentive service which helps make this hotel so special. Less than 5 minutes walk to the beach which is straight across the road, and 5 minutes walk to the town centre which although small has a bit of everything. 400 baht taxi ride to Patong whenever you want to dip your toe in the madness otherwise just sit back and relax......

We really liked this place. One thing that we realized in :huket is that location is everything. We stayed at a beautiful place for the first few days, but this place was far from everything, so we felt prisoners after a few days. Renting a moped was the only option. The Village is only a 3 minute walk to the beach and is in the the town of Karon, so it is optimally located. There are things going in Karon but it is not as crazy as Patong or Kata, yet it is very close to these towns.
The pluses: the facilities are beautiful, the rooms are large, very well kept and very nice. The common areas are also well kept and the pool is great.
The minuses: very few of the hotel staff speak English. They are very pleasant, but they just smile back to you and say 10 minutes. I got the impression that the barman at the pool bar had recently passed away because I never saw him/her. Finally, the taxi service I got from the hotel following their recommendation got us to the airport right on time. On time for our scheduled departure, so we had to rebook.
All in all, very good place, I would definitely stay there again.

Room tip: Most rooms are great. The common areas are quiet, so even if you stay close to the reception area, it is unlikely you will have a problem sleeping.

If you prefer Movenpick, this hotel is not for you! Kids, groups, large families - this is way too boring for you. But if you are looking for a piece of paradise, away from crowds, cheap mass tourism, etc this is the place! Only 30 odd villas, thrown around the garden, marvelous pool with sun lounges and a pool bar.... For a couple of days we even couldn't be bothered going to the beach, so nice and pieceful it was around the pool. Spa is great, yes, more dear that in the town, but it is completely different league of experience! Compare Johnson's baby oil and an natural aromatherapy oil and you will understand what I mean!
Food in the restaurant is real high standard! We tried to go out, but as Karon is overtaken by mass tourists from Russia, Australia etc with menues translated in 20 plus languages and the most common dish is pizza... the hotel food is the most authentic you could find in the area!
Overall the only complain is the cost of wi-fi. It felt like the Internet is not a daily necessity but a luxury worth The One and Only!

When we arrived I wasn't sure it was the same place as advertised on the net. It looked a little scruffy, but once we were introduced to the Resort, our minds were changed.

We had a poolside villa - no. 508. Close to the bar and the restaurant. It was so quiet so this wasn't a problem. All holidaymakers seemed to want a quiet and relaxed holiday and there no children, it doesn't cater for them.

Staff friendly, food excellent. The resort is clean. Not far to walk to bars and restaurants or the beach. Worth trying the Spa for a Thai Wrap and a massage - heaven.

Definitely a place to return to for pure relaxation and its not geared up for late night partying.

Take plenty of mosqito repellent.

Room tip: If you want a more private spot, don't have pool villa no's 507/508/or 509, as these are overlooked by the bar and restaurant.
