Located on the small island of Maprao, off Phuket’s east coast, is this quality timeshare complex of the award-winning Absolute World Group. It has a fine setting over a lovely stretch of sand and is perfect for both families and couples looking to relax in comfort away from the relative Phuket bustle and yet be within earshot of its amenities.
The company is well noted in the world of ‘boutique leisure’ and has fitted out the Absolute Private Residence Club in style. This exclusive timeshare setup is highly rated on review sites like Tripadvisor and is a real boon for this area, with villas going right onto the beach, a rarity for Phuket.
There are just a couple of dozen units at the Coconut Island resort, which are stylishly done and come in a detached and semi-detached configuration. They are large with spacious rooms, to include big bedroom and kitchenette, with the front ones having direct access to a 500m strip of sand.
Each timeshare unit comes with French windows that open out onto a private swimming pool, terrace and lawn area. Semi-detached places feature a separate bedroom—villas with two bedrooms—while a Western-style kitchen, flat-screen TV and safe come as standard.
The timeshare units are based about a central club, which has a communal pool and range of facilities. Enjoy the onsite health spa (the Village Spa) with its sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy pool and plunge pool. Certified therapists offer a range of treatments here, while the fitness suite is good for daily workouts.
There’s also a convenience store, bar and restaurant onsite, the Tamarind Restaurant and Bar. Both Western and Thai-style dishes are served here, while the Village Deli does goodies from Europe, including fresh breads and tapas. You could also opt to dine at your terrace as barbecue sets are provided.
Visitors are mere steps from the beach, which is very quiet, plus there is a pier for quick access to Phuket. Though offshore, Maprao island is close to Phuket and is also north of the town, making for relatively quick transfers from Phuket International Airport, around 40 minutes.
The Absolute Private Residence Club at the Village Coconut Island boat is also available 24 hours a day, meaning you can sample the delights of Phuket and be safe in the knowledge of being able to access your beautiful villa at all times.
