Dusit Thani Laguna Resort
I had not originally intended to add any Phuket hotel information on here, but after thinking about it, whether you are a package tourist, a flashpacker or a family looking for a relaxing holiday, you're going to need a hotel! So, as time goes by, I will add some recommendations ranging from backpacker rooms up to 5 star luxury. Phuket has it all.
We'll start with luxury. I've met up with some friends this week who I used to know some years ago in Utila (Honduras), where they ran the infamous Bundu Cafe. After having a child, they decided to head back to the UK, where they now run a cafe in Loughborough called the Baobab Cafe. When they told me they were planning a trip to Thailand in July, I first advised them about the weather, then about hotels. The weather in Phuket during July is normally decent, and so far they have had sun, sun, sun. For hotels, they wanted something pretty luxurious and away from the main beaches...
The Laguna Phuket complex is huge, consisting of 5 hotels - Laguna Beach Resort, Dusit Laguna, Allamanda Laguna and the Banyan Tree. All are top class, not cheap, and extremely nice! Well, my friends are staying at the Dusit Thani Laguna, and when we went to pick them up on Sunday for a drive round the island we entered a different world. Everything from the reception to the pools to the staff are clean, friendly, comfortable, and my friends are being pampered to the max. In high season these hotels are bloomin' expensive (by my standards), but are always full. In low season (now) there are good deals to be had.
The various hotels are built around a lagoon complex, with a wide variety of restaurants, shuttles between the different hotels, and you are steps away from Bang Tao beach. Laguna is also conveniently close to the airport.
So there you have it - you want some luxury, try the Dusit Thani Laguna. It's one of those hotels that I can recommend with no hesitation. Absolute top drawer.
