Historical Traveller Reviews of Laguna Beach Resort Hotel
Dont book the family planfrom becks69
Great with a young familyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
My two young children (age 5 and 2) loved feeding 'Anna the Elephant' after breakfast every morning. Resort is well set up for children (kids club, child meals, water slide, big rooms). Staff were helpful and friendly, arranging a personalised birthday cake for my son's birthday and reservations at resturants off the resort. It was also good to be able to use some of the facilities at the other hotels on the complex.
Hopefully we will be able to go back again one day.
Relaxing place to unwindfrom KHG3068
The resort is quite large with three pools and access to a beach and lagoon. The pools are suitable for children (shallow and a small but entertaining pool slide) as well as adults (spa, poolside bar and greater depth).
The resort is about 10 - 20 km away from the main tourist beach and is much quieter. The resort is obviously primarily geared towards conferences and family centred holidays but during our time there (June 06) there was only a small 20+ conference and <10 families.
Food is very good with particular compliments to the on-site Thai restaurant. Other resorts border the lagoon and there are other restaurants to try there as well. Room service is prompt and friendly. Breakfast is buffet style and there is a wide variety of European, Korean and Thai style foods.
On site gym contains relatively new equipment (treadmill, stationary bike and weights etc)
The rooms are a bit tired and some wings are currently undergoing renovation but are otherwise spacious, clean and confortable.
There is also a baby elephant (Anna) that walks around the resort with its handler and is a hit with both kids and adults.
Wonderfulfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I must mention it is very entertaining to be engrossed in a Robert Ludlum novel , look up, and see a baby elephant pass not three feet in front of you by the pool.
The surf is too rough to swim in during June but you can easily find other activities to keep you amused, if you cant go see Tony he can help.
Anna, the elephant, was the highlight on everyday for our children especially as they didn't have the share her with too many children due to low occupancy. My husband enjoyed the golf course & we looked around the other resorts and were still happy with our choice. We would highly recommend to anyone visiting Phuket.
Wonderful holidayfrom semarroy
Loved Lagunafrom jenso
Although we did feel we were a little trapped within the laguna complex and we missed the 'local village' feel, we did relax and make the most of all the activities the resort has to offer. The beach isn't as inviting as Karon Beach,but it was still nice. The rooms aren't big, but we spent so much time out of our room anyway.
We loved the restaurants set up on the beach. Dining as the sun set, sipping on cocktails..with 3 kids,... was still wonderful...our favourite was Tom Yam Goong. The breakfast was good at Fruit de la Sea(I think) a few shacks down, my son loved the pineapple pancakes.
The waterslide, pool and elephant were a big hit with our kids and they also enjoyed the Kids club. The stalls and taxis were twice the price of karon beach so I'd advise people to shop elsewhere. I'm glad we stayed at Karon Beach as well, as this gave our children a better idea of what Phuket is really like...we did alot of day trips from there. It is difficult to leave the complex unless you have a trip organised or take a pricey taxi. They could really do with a shuttle to the next beach or village. However, if you are there just to relax and soak up the sun then it is a lovely complex and I would go again.
Peace and Quietfrom NSinUAE
We found the resort quiet but this aspect was more appreciated after we went on a tour of the island and saw the tourist traps of Patong and other over-commerialized beach areas. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Laguna Beach Resort, especially to families.
Fantastic for the familyfrom MelbourneNikki
Waterslide and baby elephant a big hit with the kids.
Restaurants with in Laguna complex a bit pricy but plenty of variety outside the laguna complex.
Would highly recommend it for families but not for couples seeking a romantic getaway.
Will definately go again.
Stay here for the beach !from Chefworks
Top Local Tips for Phuket
Phi-Phi doesnt worth Preffer JameBond-Phang-Na canoeing, and WhiteWater Rafting.The PhiPhi trip by speedboat is very tiring and all beaches are TOO grouded.
Restaurants Use the Black Cat restaurant in the local village outside Laguna
FantaSea Make sure you see it. Absolutely fantastic. Allow enough time to walk around outside and take it all in I would recommend at least an hour and a half. You can buy takeaway food there but the beffet is fantastic
