by Lisa Merrigan | December 2016
"If it is important to have a hotel/resort that is fun for the family without compromising on luxury then Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort is your place. From the exceptionally friendly staff to the amazing amenities the resort promises a relaxing and memorable stay. "
THE BACKGROUND: Set on Bangtao Beach, this luxurious property is perfect for families, couples and groups. It offers a relaxed ambience with an abundance of Thai hospitality.
THE LOCATION: The resort is set within a modern resort complex conveniently close to Phuket with an airport transfer time of around 35 minutes (costing no more than 900 THB). The hotel is set on 1,000 acres of lush tropical parklands and with access to spas, golf, shops and other activities. Guests can take the boat to Canal Village to pick up some souvenirs as well as luxury goods.
THE ROOM: Mine was a deluxe sea view room (43 square metres) which was refurbished in November 2013 to a good standard. The room comprised of a king-size bed, a cute built-in window bed and a sunken Roman bath – both of which were very popular with my four-year-old! The resort’s 255 rooms also include suites and a two-bedroom villa. It’s worth noting that if you book a club room your clients will have access to the Voyager 47 Club Lounge, which provides a good array of drinks and snacks throughout the day.
RESTAURANTS/BARS: Metzo’s fuses Levantine and Mediterranean cuisine in a stylish setting. Signature restaurant Locavore has nightly entertainment. The fantastic Edgewater bar is an informal setting for cocktails with a day menu.
FACILITIES: Three restaurants, a swimming pool with water slide, tennis and fitness centres, a games room and a fantastic kids club (‘Koh Kids’) which is handy for the odd rainy day. There is also a wellness spa offering affordable treatments. For golf lovers there is an 18-hole course and a training academy.
THE RATES: The hotel offers an excellent choice of accommodation styles starting from THB 4985 (£115 per night).
