Phuket Laguna Resorts
Phuket Laguna Resorts: Phuket’s Wonderland
Laguna Phuket Golf Club, thirty restaurants and bars, a shopping village, five of the best spas in the country, and beautiful grounds create a setting you won’t want to leave. The complex hosts distinctly different, yet all first class, resorts interconnected by lagoons and a free and convenient ferry.
As an “integrated” resort complex, you can very conveniently shop or eat or purchase anything anywhere in the resorts and have it billed back to your room or villa. For just a bit of the flavor of the area check out our Phuket bird watching page – all shot within the Laguna Resorts area.
If Phuket had only the Laguna Resorts, it would still be a great destination.
Phuket’s classic – the Banyan Tree Resort and Spa sits between Bang Tao Bay and the Laguna Resorts Golf Course. The resort has been voted “World’s Best Spa Resort” by readers of Conde Nast Traveller, The “Best Resort Hotel in Asia” by the Asian Wall Street Journal and CNBC Asia, as well as “Asia’s Top Vacation Resort” by AsiaMoney Magazine.
Truly a world class resort.
The Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary is a 14-villa boutique spa resort designed to provide a sanctuary for the senses, enlivening the soul and relaxing the body and mind. Managed exclusively by Banyan Tree Spa, the Banyan Tree Phuket Spa Sanctuary caters to spa and wellness guests with spa elements, healthy cuisine, award-winning spa and wellness activities.
Set in the tropical gardens and lagoons of Laguna Phuket at Bang Tao Bay, DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree is one of South East Asia’s most astounding retreats. Designed to cater to guests looking for exclusivity, this premier 24-villa boutique resort provides an intimate and serene environment within which to relax, amidst elegant and luxurious surroundings. DoublePool Villas by Banyan Tree lie amongst a lush sanctuary of lagoons and tropical flora set back from the white sands of Bang Tao Bay.
Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort
As part of Laguna Phuket, Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas is only 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport and connected to all of the facilities offered by its wider community. Located 10 minutes from the beach on Bang Tao Bay, the resort provides a complimentary shuttle service to ensure access to the beach. Within the resort, guests will find a private neighborhood setting.
Situated beside a series of quiet lagoons is a community of two-story two, three, and four bedroom villas, complete with kitchenettes, balconies, and private pools for the three and four bedroom villas.
This resort sits on the south end of the complex and has the best swimming pool of them all – including a giant slide (great if you are bringing kids). It also has several great beach restaurants right on sand of Bang Tao Beach. Strolling the beach will provide you with many great dining options – should you wish for a change of pace.
This resort is managed by the Dusit Hotels chain, and perhaps because of that has a bit more Thai flavor to its design and operation. The grounds are beautiful (as are all the resorts at Laguna) and it is an easy walk to Canal Village for a little shopping and the two restaurants there.
Both the Dusit and LBR sit on a lagoon where you can sail or use paddle boats in calmer water. They have a small beach on the lagoon that people with young children might prefer.
Located in the center of the Laguna complex the Angsana is bordered on two sides by lagoons, one side faces the beach and another the golf course. Particularly the lagoon on the south side is full of birdlife – and just great for a stroll.
There is a “nature trail” that begins near the Angsana entrance that will walk you around a lagoon and to Canal Village. On the beach front are more restaurants and you can find dining seaside in either direction.
The Allamanda consists of a variety of suites and “serviced apartments” – some sitting on the golf course – with beautiful views – some sitting on the lagoon facing the sea. The golf course suites offer an opportunity for the best bird watching on the island and a peaceful stroll early in the morning (before the golfers start shooting at you!). It’s an easy walk to the Angsana or the Banyan Tree.
If you only visit Phuket once – Laguna Resorts is the place. The complex sits on Bang Tao Beach – featured on the Favorite Beaches page.
Several great restaurants sit right on the beach here – including the Lotus – a popular favorite.
