Turtle Village Phuket

Shops & Cuisine in Mai Khao

Turtle Village is the main shopping and dining complex located in Mai Khao, on the northwest side of Phuket. Settled right next to Marriotts’ Mai Khao Beach and Anantara Vacation Club Mai Khao, on the small road that leads to the beach and to a handful of other upscale hotels, it offers you a pleasant, modern place to hang around, browse the shops and have a bite to eat. 

The two-storey complex is built around a central plaza that features a fountain made of three turtles on top of each other. In line with the upscale resorts that surround it, Turtle Village’s shops and restaurants are quite upmarket, appealing mainly to guests of the nearby five-star beach resorts.

Turtle Village Shopping Highlights

Fashionwear, souvenirs, antiques, spa products, and jewels are the items available in the 15 or so stores of the complex (see a full list below). Famous brands - Jim Thompson, for instance - and lesser known labels such as Dosh or PK Northern Export can be found at Turtle Village. The basement of the complex also features Turtle Mart, a well-stocked supermarket. Turtle Village also features two currency exchange booths, and ATM facilities.

It is conveneint to have this shopping and dining complex in such a seculded part of Phuket, but prices are on the high side when you compare them to similar goods elsewhere on the island.

Turtle Village is a welcome addition to Mai Khao as its the only shopping and dining complex of its type at a walking distance (or short buggy ride) from the resorts settled in this tranquil area of Phuket. Apart from Mai Khao Plaza that sits 200 metres from here, there’s no other decent shopping facilities in Mai Khao.

One downside of Turtle Village is the presence of touts that try to sell you timeshare or villas located in the area. Their insistence can be annoying, so try to avoid them.
