Western & Oriental adds new resort Angsana Laguna Phuket

With the launch of the new Worldwide Families brochure and the new kids microsite - luxury travel specialist Western & Oriental continue to build the family collection. The latest addition is new from the Angsana portfolio – the family friendly and chic resort of Angsana Laguna Phuket in Thailand.

Due to open in December 2011, Angsana Laguna Phuket is nestled in Bang Tao Bay and built around six lagoons and 3kms of pristine beach. The resort will offer discerning families a luxurious beach getaway featuring a variety of land and water activities, a multitude of restaurants and entertainment options and an award-winning spa. 

Angsana Laguna Phuket features a comprehensive children’s programme complemented by a treehouse-inspired Kids’ Club.  Activities include cooking classes with hands-on tours of the Kids Club’s very own herb garden; pampering treatments for young ladies in the day spa; and coaching by renowned visiting artists for those children with artistic flair. The diner-style Kids Café is a prime spot to refuel after a day of activity, serving classic kids’ favourites like burgers and hot dogs - all recreated with a healthy twist.  Classical Thai dancing and Thailand’s legendary Muay Thai boxing are just a few cultural activities also on offer, ensuring junior guests gain a taste for the unique culture of Thailand.

While the children are occupied, adults can take advantage of what will be Phuket’s largest and most fashionable Beach Club featuring six restaurants. From cocktails by the poolside to elegant al fresco dining under the stars, there will be no shortage of culinary and night time indulgences.
