Luxury by Any Name
Like an irresistable lover, no matter how often you go there Phuket’s siren call always beckons.
By Sonali S Rekhi
As I stretched my limbs on a lazy Saturday afternoon, my fantasy took wings. I flew to a tropical paradise dotted with shimmering lakes, lush greenery and the white sandy beach. The sheer natural beauty calmed my mind as a pair of soft but firm hands kneaded and prodded me to nirvana.
And just as I started to enjoy the idyllic life, my husband woke me up demanding his afternoon cuppa. Thus began my quest for the exotic destination of my dreams. After going through numerous brochures featuring exotic locales, I finally chanced upon Laguna Phuket, which can be safely described as one of the finest integrated destination resorts in the world.
Located on the North-west of Phuket, this 1,000-acre parkland boasts of perhaps the best in the world – six deluxe hotels including Banyan Tree Phuket, Sheraton Grande Laguna, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, Laguna Beach Resort, Laguna Phuket Holiday Club Resort, Allamanda Laguna Phuket and a collection of private luxury villas, Outrigger Laguna Phuket Holiday Residences, an 18-hole golf course, a Canal Village for shopping and a host of adventure and dining options.
Families, large groups, honeymooners and young adults will all have something to do. No wonder Laguna Phuket has become a popular venue for the big fat Indian wedding, with some of its hotels hosting a number of high-profile events involving important international guests and entertainers.
