The Village Coconut Island, following its Christmas 2010 opening, is fast becoming one of Thailand's most sought after all-villa holiday destinations. Set on a coconut-fringed private island less than five minutes by boat off the east coast of Phuket, The Village Coconut Island is redefining tropical getaways and luxury living. The world is sitting up and taking notice as The Village Coconut Island gained HOT LIST 7 status in this year's South East Asia's Top 20 Resort Properties in Property Report South East Asia magazine. The highly anticipated "South East Asia's Top 20 Resort Properties" lists the top 20 completed resort properties in South East Asia, as compiled by Property Report's editorial team based on factors like location, design, dedicated services, and investment potential.
"Even with the global economy struggling, the number of people choosing retirement to warmer climes is on the rise, so the trend of owning property and retiring overseas is predicted to grow," says Jules Kay,
editor of Property Report South East Asia. "The accessibility of South East Asian destinations has grown significantly in recent years to the point where wealthy Asian residents or relaxation seeking expatriates see
nothing unusual in flying from their homes in commercial hubs like Hong Kong or Singapore to resorts like Phuket, Samui and Bali for the weekend. The resort properties featured in the Top 20 list are all top notch, full service
vacation homes, each with its own special character and exclusive benefits for residents." The Village Coconut Island enjoys a top position in this year's HotList amongst some of the regions other sought after resorts: Six Senses, Karma Kandara, W Samui Residences, Malaiwana, Banyan Tree Residences and Nexus Residences.
The Village Coconut Island recently started on the second phase of the development and appointed the Absolute
World Group as its premier sales and marketing agent for the two-bedroom private pool villas and Jacuzzi suites.
The Village Coconut Island offers a 'best in class' mix of position, facilities, service and investment opportunity for those wishing to buy their own piece of private island paradise and boasting a lifestyle that appeals to
the sophisticated buyer looking for excellent investment value, as well as a perfect freehold whole or fractional ownership second home proposition. Bryan Lunt, Chairman of Absolute World Group said, "The Village is a Grade A private beachfront development offering holiday-makers the perfect paradise island escape. To find such a quality all-villa resort right on the beach is rare. The fact that around 80% of the total project is already built today,
makes it Phuket's best and most secure real estate deal by far." Lunt added, "The Village embodies the very meaning of "tropical" and we're confident of a positive market uptake and delivering strong returns and most
importantly, great vacation memories. Its not every day such a unique real estate opportunity becomes available which we are extremely delighted to add this to our portfolio."
