Flashback to 1984 when an abandoned tin mine in Bangtao Bay was livened up by the hands of Thai Wah Resorts Development Co., Ltd., later known as The Laguna Resorts & Hotels Public Co., Ltd, who invested a lot of money and transformed the first plot of land into a beautiful exotic resort named Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket. This was the very first property of the Laguna Phuket complex, which keeps providing an outstanding service and offers great value holiday experiences for its guests on its 22nd year of success.
Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket boasts a beautiful concept that has been inspired by King Rama VI’s wondrous utopia for more than 60 years and surely promises to continue the tradition. The resort is well known for its distinctive neo-colonial style, blended with variations of traditional Thai elements incorporated throughout the resort. It has a dramatic backdrop of serene lagoons, a pristine white sandy beach and unbeatable Andaman Sea – just a few steps away – that accentuates its elegance and makes it a wonderful destination.
Amid a sanctuary of tranquility shaded by native casuarinas and coconut palms, a cluster of low rise buildings – no more than three stories high, strategically form this 5-star resort. Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket offers 226 well appointed guest rooms and suites, all with private balcony; plus 28 new exclusive villas each with a private pool and panoramic views of the ocean or lagoon. The interior is superb with the smart application of native woods, tiles, textiles and accents, yet fully equipped with extensive range of facilities and amenities e.g. hair dryer, mini-bar, in-room safe, satellite television, IDD telephones, coffee/tea making facilities etc.
All five dining outlets at Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket are becoming a legend – a real paradise for all senses: Set in a lush garden by the lagoon is Ruen Thai serving authentic Royal Thai cuisine. Casuarina Beach Restaurant and Pub is located right on the sandy beach where you can eat the freshest grilled seafood & chill out with cocktails and cold drinks while watching the famed Phuket sunset. Recently awarded “Thailand’s Best Restaurant 2010” by Thailand Tatler, La Trattoria is a perfect choice for a luxury dining experience with Italian sensations and tastes for the main course. The waterfall and the pond invite everyone to treat themselves with a wide variety of dishes from all over the world served at Laguna Café. The Poolside Café is situated by a large swimming pool providing drinks and snacks until sunset. A place to sit back and relax, Horizon Lounge offers magnificent views, morning coffee or tea, tropical exotic drinks or a glass of Chardonnay and live entertainment when the night falls.
Beyond an attempt to trigger your taste buds, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket also considers activities and recreations the essential part to complete a journey. The resort therefore offers a wide variety of facilities, including a swimming pool, tennis courts, Fitness Centre, Recreation Centre, Kids’ Club, games room, jogging track, three-hole pitch and putt, water sports and the Angsana Spa. And as part of Asia’s first integrated resort, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket guests are privileged to access its 18-hole golf course, horse riding and an outdoor adventure training centre, as well as Camp Laguna for the children and other facilities all located within the Laguna Phuket complex.
Since Phuket has been promoted for MICE business, the resort, from an impeccable potential they already have, continuously develops a strong reputation as one of the leading specialists and venues for MICE groups. Hundreds of small to medium size groups visit and pursue their purpose from time to time. Whether it is Casuarina Beach, Dusit Laguna hall, Suriyan, or Chantra, each room comes equipped with the latest amenities to support any kind of function.
By this coming high season, the resort’s 450 Million Baht refurbishing program of 67 Deluxe rooms will reach its completion. The management revealed the new look will be more stylish but still twirl around traditional Thai accents. The smooth granite underfoot, modern mosaic bathrooms, & private balcony will enhance guest relaxation experiences. The flat screen TV’s, cable network, WIFI and new writing desk will please business travelers.
With the sea lapping at your door step, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket lies along Bang Tao Bay on the west coast of Phuket, just 10 minutes’ drive from The Two Heroines Monuments and 30 minutes’ drive from Phuket International Airport.
