PHUKET, THAILAND—The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort opened here.
Outrigger Enterprises Group, a privately held Hawaii-based company, now has four properties open in Asia: Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort, the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas, the Outrigger Phi Phi Island Beach Resort, and O-CE-N Bali by Outrigger.
Darren Edmonstone, managing director/Asia-Pacific for Outrigger Enterprises Group, said the property’s exclusive Club Lounge privileges, large water slide and kids’ club, Activate sports facilities and fully rejuvenated rooms, suites and villas, all with sea or lagoon views, made the property a “world class product.”
The design for the completely revamped rooms and hotel landscaping was carried out by P49, a Bangkok-based design company. One of the main features of the property is its sense of arrival created by a lobby area with a wooden Thai house theme and traditional Thai images and artifacts. The lobby offers views to the Andaman Sea.
“We are particularly proud of our five innovative food and beverage outlets,” said Edmonstone. “Especially Locavore, which will set new benchmarks in ethical dining by sourcing the freshest locally produced food from farmers and fishermen in the Phuket area."
