Between lagoon and sea, the Dusit Laguna Resort Hotel has all the characteristics of a high standard hotel: luxury, tranquillity and exclusivity. The hotel deplores minimum damages in a few rooms because of the Tsunami of the last 26th December, but the hotel works as usual.

    Location 6.63 /10

    By Bang Tao beach, on the west coast of Phuket and just by a vast artificial lagoon created here during the 80s on the site of an ancient tin mine. Phuket Town is 14 miles away, on the west coast, and the airport is also 14 miles north, which is around 30 minutes by car.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Dusit Laguna Resort Hotel has 226 rooms: 214 Deluxe (half of them has sea view, a bit more expensive, the other half has lagoon view) and 12 suites. Very bright, nicely furnished in a Sino-Portuguese style which privileges fair colours (with sensibly bigger beds than the actual standard), they benefit from all equipment expected from a hotel of such category. A small disappointment with regard to the surface of the room and balcony, but the beautiful bathroom, well-ventilated, compensates this little flaw.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The huge and very comfortable lobby, decorated in a clear Asian style, gives the style of this high standard establishment opened in 1987 and currently undergoing renovation: luxury, tranquillity and exclusivity. There is also a part equipped with air conditioning, all panelling, especially dedicated to welcome the new guests. The new buildings of the Dusit Laguna resort Hotel, all on three floors, are built in a vast space dotted with tropical gardens, between sea and lagoon. Their ordinary architecture is quite disappointing compared to the sumptuousness of the lobby. Likewise, the only swimming pool, in the centre of the site, seems rather unsufficient for a hotel of such category. A three-hole golf course adjacent to the entrance buildings completes the infrastructures.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    Four a la carte restaurants (Italian, international, barbecue and Thai cuisine) and two bars are available to the guests of the hotel. All benefit from a good effort in the decoration and privilege privacy. The gastronomic level, of quite a high standard, is in conformity with the standard of the establishment. The wine and spirits menu offers a very wide choice.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Bang Tao beach, which extends on many miles, is a good alternative to the spots of Patong Beach or Karon Beach, very busy during high season (winter months). More tranquillity and space, in short it is an attractive option to those looking for relaxation. The quality of the water and of the sand is satisfactory, and the beach level will pleased swimming lovers. However, there is a real flaw: in summer, when the sea is high and rough, the water covers the beach and makes it almost inaccessible. The backwash is so strong that a fortification wall made of sand bags was also built to protect the hotel from the sea.

    To know

    The Dusit Laguna is part of a complex of 990 acres including four other hotels of the lagoon area (Laguna Beach Club, Allamanda Laguna Phuket, Sheraton Grande Laguna Phuket, Banyan Tree) belonging to the same owner: the equipment, services and facilities of each one are accessible to the guests of the other four hotels. A free shuttle service operates within the five establishments all day. Recently, the Dusit Laguna is equipped with a lovely spa installed among bamboo cabins.

      • Location 6.91

      The Best Western Phuket Ocean Resort is a decidedly family-oriented establishment, but that doesn't mean you won't find couples holidaying here too; it all depends on the time of year. The hotel is built in a step formation and although there is a lift, it's still not really suitable for those with reduced mobility. It can be a real struggle getting up to the higher rooms as well, which is a real shame, as the sea views from up here are spectacular. The facilities at the Best Western Phuket Ocean Resort are starting to show signs of wear and tear but are nevertheless well-maintained. On the downside, since the hotel is rather close to the road, the noise of traffic can easily be heard, particularly in the restaurant.

      • Location 5.48

      Opened in 2009, the Millennium is just another hotel in Phuket. It's not that its facilities aren't comfortable, but there's nothing distinguishing them from those of its Patong neighbours. In short, this hotel does not leave a lasting impression, at least not from the outside, and there are no added bonuses to which we would give particular mention. However, it does offer a good level of service and a well equipped spa. Few Europeans come to stay here, with Asians and Australians making up most of the clientele.

      Formerly known as the Sabana Resort, this small establishment was renamed the All Seasons Naiharn Phuket by the Accor group. Built in 2001, the hotel was severely damaged by the 2004 tsunami and was reopened under its new name in 2008 with a fresh face-lift and upgraded facilities - today it offers good value for your money.

      We would highly recommend the Twinpalms Phuket for various reasons, including its architecture, its high-quality services, its friendly staff and its comfortable facilities, among many others. Admittedly, you will need to cross the road to get to the beach, but the hotel itself more than compensates for this inconvenience. The Twinpalms is an upmarket establishment aimed more at couples than families with little ones since there are no facilities here for younger guests (although there are 24 guest rooms with adjoining doors). Irrespective of this, it is certainly a worthy member of the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" group!

      Just like its cousins the Kamala Beach and the Surin Beach, the Courtyard Phuket at Patong Beach aims to attract a family clientele with its mini-club, which happens to be as well-equipped as a fully functioning nursery school. This urban hotel also boasts a central location at the heart of Patong, just alongside the Hard Rock Café on the corner, although on the down-side, it isn't located on the seafront and its spa is something of nothing. We were told when we visited that this wasn't likely to change in the near future either, as there are so many places in the vicinity which are often less expensive.

      The Radisson Plaza Phuket is a fantastic hotel that opened in 2009. Things that stand out at this establishment are the high-quality infrastructures, friendly and attentive staff and very comfortable rooms. It's the ideal place for relaxing holidays in an idyllic setting. It attracts families and couples alike. The clientele comes from Europe and Asia, but also Russia. However, it is quite far from the island's main attractions. Furthermore, if you want to enjoy a swim at the beach, you must find out about the tide first.

      The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
