A lovely resort, vey clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. A good family resort, the kids club is fantastic, with well organised activities daily. The pool is great with water slide fun for all young and old. The morning breakfast buffet is just amazing, lots of fresh variety of hot and cold food. The markets situated in front of he beach have lots of different things to buy. Thai silk tableclothes, clothing, designer copy bags I bought. Highly recommend this resort. It's bout a half hour drive from Patong.

We spent a week at this lovely hotel in June. We went Club, and it was the best decision we made.
All the staff were very friendly, spoke excellent English, and couldn't do enough for you. Recently renovated, the rooms were spacious, although the balconies a little small. The Club was wonderful, sitting out over the lagoon having a sundowner and nibbling on canapes was very special. The food was delicious.

There is a shuttle bus into the village, where there are some great restaurants and bars.
There are plenty of other restaurants in the greater resort, and also along the beach.

If you like the hustle and bustle of Patong, this is not for you. It is peaceful and elegant, just like the people. I would definitely go again.

For the most part I cant fault the hotel. The staff are very friendly & the rooms are large enough, very clean & comfortable. There is also a free shuttle bus to go between the other hotels & around Laguna. Breakfast is pretty good & pools are nice.

Negatives; Its a little out of the way to get to anything without grabbing a taxi. I was in a ground floor room which is great but when the people on the floor above are awake & walking around dropping things on the floor all night, you wont sleep well - & Im usually a heavy sleeper! Pools need to be vacuumed more regularly.

Id stay here again if I came back to the Laguna area, after checking out the other Laguna hotels in my opinion this was the best, followed closely by the angsana but the staff there seemed morose & unfriendly. If youre looking for a cheaper meal google "black cat restaurant & bar" they have a pick up & drop off service from laguna or they do takeaway/ delivery if the kids are too feral to take out.

Room Tip: Try to get a top floor ocean view

I capped off my 2 month stay in Thailand with a week at Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort. It was the perfect ending. Staff was waiting for me at the airport when I arrived and I was given two nice, wet towels to cool down with. Once I arrived at the resort I was greeted with flowers, a cold drink, and more towels. It was a very warm reception that was maintained throughout my stay.

The room was much larger than I expected and spotlessly clean and comfortable. I was especially impressed by housekeeping, their attention to detail. Not only coming in to clean the room on a daily basis, but also coming back in the early evening to turn down the bedding, bring more water, close the shades, ect. Very attentive and friendly.

I am not a picky eater and thought the food was very good, nice spread for breakfast. A little on the pricey side based on what I have seen in other parts of Thailand, but it's worth it.

As far as atmosphere, very relaxing and laid-back with still numerous options for activities. A great option for families or those wanting to stay away from the wilder side of Phuket. From what I could tell, all guests seemed to really enjoy themselves.

I thought the staff was awesome. Very friendly and attentive. Everyone from housekeepers/maintenance crew to manager always greeting folks. Really felt they had a genuine concern for guests. I would definitely go back!

Facts the real good ones :-)
1. Amazing views, fantastic family fun activities - waterproof, baby elephant, boat rides, etc, etc.
2. Duty or front office managers - eager to help and make sure that you enjoy your stay.
3. Rooms : very well furnished ( we stayed in deluxe sea view room).
4. Amazing choices on dinner, restaurants, activities within the premises. Shuttle & ferry service to commute within the estate is a big plus.

Things which should / can get better :-
1. Service attitude of staff ( normal reception team) : we inspite of advanced info on flights had to wait for 2 hours for our room to be ready for check in. After we didn't like the room offered, we had to wait for another two hours to get room we wanted. Sorry, but reception lady didn't think or CARE about our 16 hour journey, state of our 4 yr old son.
2. We had to cut short our trip because of personal emergency. Again reception staff would debate during billing of one cold drink can( which we never used) with my wife while checkout when they knew that every minute counted for us to take flight at short notice. Resort doesn't support any infrastructure on travel flights information.
3. Taxi costs, trip costs are almost 2 times the outside local ones without any great value offering.
4. Resort asks for a credit card advance while check- in. Really can't understand the logic as credit card copy I'd good enough security.

Overall, my family liked the resort but not impressed with service. Service attitude at higher levels hasn't got cascaded to lower staff at all.

Regards,
Varun

Dear Khun Varun_Gpt,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your vacation at our resort. It is nice to hear about the areas you liked and the areas we could do better. I am sorry to hear about your encounter with our reception staff at check-in. The hotel is running full occupancy at this time so guest arriving before check-in time of 3:00 pm may have to wait for guests to check-out of the room and have the room cleaned. We understand that our guests travel a long way to enjoy Phuket and try our best to accommodate guests as soon as the room is ready. But in cases where a particular room type is needed the wait could be until 3:00 pm. We can check flight times and print boarding passes at the front desk or at Activate. I apologize if this service was not offered to you. I understand your frustration with the price of taxis in Phuket. The rates are not under the hotels control and can be higher than people expect. Taking a pre-authorization on a credit card at check-in is standard practice in almost every hotel. I am sorry that this inconvenienced you.

I hope you have a chance to visit us again and enjoy your vacation in full.

TRAVELER’S TIP: We provide luggage storage and locker rooms for early arriving guests so they can start their vacation while their room is being prepared. If an early check-in is a must, and paying for an extra day is not an issue for you, reserve the room for the day before, indicate early arrival the following day so that we know you are coming the following day, and we will hold the room vacant for you for your early arrival.

Safe travels,

Jim Heather
Resort Manager

Spent 4 days at this resort end July/early August with husband and son and his girlfriend. We all had a great time. Rooms were fantastic ... Plenty of space. Good bathroom. Highly recommend upgrading to club room with club access. It may be a little more $$$ but sell worth it. The resort is rather large and thercore gets very busy, by choosing the Club access we had peaceful breakfast time and a place to go to chill during the day without the hustle and bustle. Pool area was great and the water slide was fun. Village shops at the beachfront added a bit of market life to the resort and we accessed it for snacks and beer. We took. Taxi ride into Patng for a shopping trip nd it was very reasonably priced, the taxi driver offered to pick us up afterwards. We told him we would be three to four hours and he waited, at no charge! He was like a tourist guide on our tri to and from. The resort, well worth the money. We spent one night eating out .. Lotus restaurant .. Excellent, hold highly recommend it, especially if it is good weather as it is right on the beach. The food was fantastic. Overall a great 4 nights .. Highly recommend it

We booked 7 nights at Outrigger Laguna and 3 at Outrigger Phi Phi island through an Australian travel agent at a very special super-low price (for what we received). We felt like we were treated like royalty at Laguna. Our room was spotless, serviced every day and with a turn-down service in the evening ( a Thai orchid placed on the sheet). Special thanks to Nok. We were granted use of the Club facilities where the food and drink (complimentary for everything but alcohol) was outstanding, and there were complimentary cocktails in the evening along with super delicious canapes. Special thanks to Aey. We chose to breakfast at the Locavore (also included in the deal) where the range of dishes was huge: Western, Asian, fresh fruit, even cheeses and smoked salmon!, beautifully presented. The wait staff were great. Special thanks to Wei for the great service.
Facilities were excellent (it has been refurbished recently). Went down the giant water-slide heaps of time; not bad for an oldie! Very child friendly. We would bring our family, grandchildren, next time.
Enjoyed every minute and would return in a heart-beat.
