Angsana Laguna Phuket – the newest resort within Laguna Phuket’s idyllic beachside complex – recently opened its doors at the end of 2011. We take a look around this spectacular new complex to see what exciting family-friendly offerings are available for spring and summer.
estled within Bang Tao Bay, Phuket’s most coveted address, the spectacular beachfront resort of Angsana Laguna Phuket lies just 20 minutes away from Phuket International Airport, offering unparalleled access to the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea. The philosophy behind this resort is based on rejuvenation of the mind, body and soul – and a well-deserved holiday at Angsana Laguna Phuket is guaranteed to do exactly that.
Discerning families – large or small, will be spoilt for choice with the stylish holiday destination at Angsana Laguna Phuket. A comprehensive selection of rooms, suites, lofts and private residences offer guests a myriad of options, ranging from the elegant Laguna Rooms that boast stunning views of the gardens, the swimming pool and lagoon, or the sea. Two bedroom suites, lofts and private residences are available for larger families, and for the ultimate in luxury, enjoy a sojourn in a three-bedroom suite at the Angsana Pool Residences, featuring private pools and gardens with views of the championship Laguna Phuket golf course.
Dining facilities include the Market Place – a fantastic all-day venue exuding the charm of a traditional Thai street market, and the fantastic Bodega & Grill, situated on a landscaped patio overlooking the stunning lagoon. Seafood lovers will enjoy local delights at Baan Talay, such as fresh Phuket lobster, black crabs and tiger prawns. Other dining options include Poolside, for casual alfresco meals, and Loy Krathong for sunset cocktails and creative Asian tapas complemented by live entertainment. Just a five-minute boat ride across the lagoon, the Canal Bakery offers freshly baked pastries and juices along with healthy sandwiches and salads – a delicious treat for the entire family.
During down time, lucky mums can pamper themselves with a treatment or two at the award-winning Angsana Spa, where therapies highlight a fusion of wellness techniques from the East and West. And for deserving dads, the Laguna Phuket 18 hole championship golf course is just a short stroll away.
New for 2012 is the resort’s beach club, XANA, which opens in March and features spacious sun loungers and plush day beds for families to enjoy. And with a selection of Mediterranean and Thai fusion cuisine, the delicious food at the XANA beach club will please even the fussiest of tastes!
There’ll never be a dull moment with a wealth of fun-filled activities on offer.
Children will enjoy the resort’s Treehouse Kids Club, which is built over two stories and features a café along with wonderfully fun activities, such as arts and crafts classes and an interactive story hour.
Little ones can also indulge themselves like mummy and daddy at a Thai sala, offering spa treatments for children including hair braiding, and basic manicures and pedicures. The club allows children the opportunity to play with Lucky and Joey – Laguna Phuket’s two adorable resident baby elephants. In addition to this, families will enjoy boat trips and snorkelling excursions together, as well as a fantastic opportunity to interact and learn from world-famous visiting artists who are in residence at the resort periodically during the year.
Getting you to Phuket in luxury is Qatar Airways, who were named ‘Airline of the Year’ by Skytrax, for their outstanding, family friendly in-flight service. Angsana Laguna Phuket also takes pride in its family-friendly facilities, providing baby seats free-of-charge in hotel cars and airport transfers, and mini-bars in all the guest rooms that cater for milk bottles and children’s food. With a wealth of knowledge of the local area, experience and passion, the staff at Angsana Laguna Phuket know just how to create the perfect holiday for the whole family – one that is guaranteed to create an abundance of unique memories that last forever.
