Located on the west coast of Phuket Island, the integrated Laguna Phuket destination resort spans 1,000 acres of idyllic tropical parkland and fronts a 3km stretch of the white sandy beaches of Bang Tao Bay.

Laguna Phuket currently comprises six resorts, with a new one slated to open in October 2015. All guests can enjoy the 18-hole championship golf course at Laguna Phuket Golf Club, be pampered at five luxurious spas, dine at stylish restaurants and bars, take part in exciting excursions, indulge their inner shopaholic at the retail galleries and shopping village, and chill out by the pristine beaches and azure waters of the Andaman Sea.

Convenience is key at Laguna Phuket. Everywhere within the sprawling resort can be accessed within minutes by shuttle boats and buses. Restaurant bills from any hotel outlet are charged back to guest's room account, so dining is hassle-free. Getting to the resort is also a breeze - there are daily international and domestic flights that serve Phuket International Airport, which is a mere 30 minutes away.

Whether you're travelling with friends, vacationing with family or planning a romantic escape, Laguna Phuket offers something for everyone with ample opportunities for fun, romance, relaxation and exploring.
