The Outrigger Phuket Staycation

As we embrace 2021 and try to quench our thirst for international travel, Phuket is a welcome respite from the cityscape. With promotions aplenty, a sea facing resort is now one short flight away. Last month, we visited Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort.

Located in Bangtao Bay, a private limo will deposit you in your new sanctuary within 30 minutes in normal traffic. We really liked the wooden panels in the lobby and the inviting chairs and sofas. Island hour began right away.

The resort is very leafy overall with coconut trees swaying in many strategic corners. The tough choice for us was to pick between basking by the pool or sauntering on the beach. In every way, Vitamin Sea is available in varying doses. You decide, is your sanctuary for your staycation…

Choose a room that fits your holiday budget – Lagoon View, Ocean View and Oceanfront. The Club Oceanfront room comes with Club benefits and a panoramic view of the sea.

Wake up early for a private walk and enjoy the morning freshness, the calm waters and the welcoming embrace of nature. Keep an eye out for the ‘grammable swing on the beach. Do your selfies here and maybe your Instagram stories too. During the day, the swimming pool area is the perfect location for a swim, a drink and to read or sunbath.

For food, check out their restaurants or opt for casual light bites by the pool. There are plenty of options nearby the hotel too. Massage is available from their inhouse Massage Sala Spa.

Overall, we suggest to capitalise on the sea and make full use of the private beach and the large swimming pool area for your relaxation and self-rejuvenation.
