Absolute Private Residence Club at the Village Coconut Island Joins Interval International Global Vacation Exchange Network

December 20, 2011

Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group welcomes The Village Coconut Island, the latest Absolute World Group resort to join its global vacation exchange network. The private residence club is part of an exclusive mixed-use development on a private island off the east coast of the popular holiday island of Phuket, Thailand.

“The Village Coconut Island has been developed to create the ideal vacation residence for owners and Interval International members,” said Bryan Lunt, chairman of Absolute World Group. “With staggering views of Phang-Nga Bay, endless amenities, and a high level of service, it is the perfect paradise island escape. To find such a quality all-villa resort right on the beach is rare.”

In fact, the resort was recently named Best Shared Ownership Development in the inaugural South East Asia Property Awards created by Property Report South East Asia. The magazine received more than 1,500 nominations and recognised winners as “the creme de la creme of the industry.”

Absolute’s private residence club is part of the 192-unit Coconut Island resort community with 500 metres (1,640 feet) of unspoiled beachfront. Amenities include a spa and state-of-the-art fitness centre offering yoga classes and Thai boxing lessons, two lighted tennis courts, and a children’s club.

The stylish studio suites are housed in semi-detached buildings and each has ample living space, including a kitchenette and large bedroom with French windows that open to a landscaped terrace with Jacuzzi. Lavish Thai-style waterfront villas, inspired by the design of the local Thai long-tail boats, have private infinity pools and many also have uninterrupted sea views. These units have two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms in 96 square metres (1,033 square feet) of living space that includes a fully equipped Western-style kitchen, with grocery service on request. Air-conditioned suites and villas have flat-screen satellite TV and DVD player and electronic safe, as well as an in-villa dining and daily maid service on request.

The beachfront Tamarind Restaurant and Bar serves freshly cooked traditional Thai food, along with a selection of Western-style dishes. The Village Deli offers imported meats, cheeses and European tapas, freshly baked breads, and assorted produce. Barbecue sets are also available for guests who prefer to dine beside their pool or in their private tropical garden.

Members and guests are invited to use the resort’s collection of watercraft. The onsite Village Spa has an herbal Turkish hammam steam room, a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool, Scandinavian sauna, and ice plunge. A wide range of holistic treatments, incorporating elements of traditional Thai healing rituals include massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs.

“The Village Coconut Island is one of the latest endeavours of Absolute World Group, an award-winning boutique leisure and resort developer,” said Joe Hickman, executive director Asia Pacific for Interval International. “True to form, the beauty of this unique resort is that it is both private, yet also easily accessible to Phuket. A five-minute water taxi ride is available 24 hours, when — or if — guests wish to do some sightseeing, go shopping, or sample the Phuket nightlife.”

Absolute Private Residence Club at The Village Coconut Island is 40 minutes from Phuket International Airport.
