Estimating to reach a wider target audience in the Indian market, The Village Coconut Island has appointed Nijhawan Group as their representative to enhance their trade and media initiatives in India.

Jintana Ngorsurachet (Yok), Assistant Director of Sales, The Village Coconut Island, said, “India is one of the biggest source markets for Thailand and the number of visitor arrivals to Phuket are continually increasing, with the year on year sale of the resort witnessing a growth of 30-60 per cent. We are excited at the opportunity of presenting innovative offers to our key Indian visitors.”

She added, “We are elated by our partnership with Nijhawan Group and are confident about strengthening ties with the Indian trade partners and key stakeholders through the right marketing channels. Through this partnership, the Island aims to target segments such as MICE, wedding, FITs and female travellers.”

Priyanka Nijhawan, Director - Representations, Nijhawan Group, said, “We feel honoured to be appointed as the India representative of The Village Coconut Island. Owing to the increasing disposable incomes and the rising middle class, India’s GDP is growing at the rate of 7 per cent every year, thus, making India one of the fastest growing outbound markets in the world.”

Nijhawan went on to say, “The increasing direct flights from India to Phuket have made it even more feasible for Indians to travel for special occasions and long weekends. Through this partnership, Nijhawan Group would support the tour operators and travel agents in their sales and marketing efforts to maximise the number of Indians staying at The Village Coconut Island. We look forward to bringing out the best of the resort through our marketing initiatives and increasing visitor arrivals from India.”

Located just five minutes from the Phuket mainland, The Village Coconut Island retains the tranquil old-world charm as well as matches the modern time clock. Although discovered hundreds of years ago by the shipwrecked explorers, it offers privacy decked with comfort of luxury.
