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
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 - 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 Sheraton or the Banyan Tree.
