Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas now open

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas now open

The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas opened today with over 75% occupancy booked for December and January. Outrigger’s second property in Phuket opened on time in an environment where many hotel openings have been delayed.

The property’s opening General Manager, Mr Pieter van der Hoeven, attributed exceptional booking levels from Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Australia to the resort’s unique “value plus space” proposition.

Until 31 March, 2011 the 229 square metre two-bedroom villa will sell from Thai Baht 6,000* (US$176), the 457 square metre three-bedroom pool villa starts at Thai Baht 9,000* (US$265), and the 604 square metre four-bedroom pool villa is available from Thai Baht 13,000* (US$382).

“We’re getting a lot of interest and bookings from visitors who already know Phuket quite well, but want a home away from home where they can find time for themselves in luxury surroundings,” said Mr van der Hoeven.

The 68-villa property is part of the Laguna Phuket destination resort at Bang Tao beach. Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas guests have signing privileges at 30 food and beverage outlets and spa facilities across Laguna Phuket, and at the nearby Laguna Phuket Golf Course. Outrigger guests also receive free transfers to the resort’s own beach club.


Mr van der Hoeven said butler service, a gymnasium, a kids’ club, free wifi and a conveniently located international poolside restaurant were contributing factors that had driven demand beyond pre-opening expectations.

The special opening rates at Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas, which are valid until 31 March 2011, can be booked online at Or by calling (+66) 76 336 900. Or by emailing [email protected]
