In Laguna Bay.
I must say right away that the hotel is far from any infrastructure.
There are hotels around.
Deposit 2000 per night.
Russian-speaking staff is available at the reception and in the restaurant.
Cleanliness is perfect!
To the beach on foot 5-10 minutes, on the beach umbrellas and sun loungers bp. Throughout the territory and throughout the lagoon, you can bp to move both on a boat and on a tuk-tuk.
Beach towels are provided by the hotel.
For children there is a kids club, the largest in Phuket, a club with staff, open until 18.00, English-speaking staff.
Sports activities are held in the evening. Yoga is free.
Wi-fi bp in the lobby.
There is a swimming pool with access to the sea.
There is a transfer to Patong 500 baht per person.
The rooms themselves are very beautiful, everything is in a lilac style, every day they put a new smell, they put smells on natural and only natural flavors.
We examined the Lagone room: 30-35 sq. m.
, number of rooms - 1, flooring - tiles, bathroom with recess (very atmospheric). There is a bp safe. Additional space is not provided.
Summary: the hotel is suitable for a complete relaxation holiday. Definitely not suitable for active youth.
Flight. We flew with Aerosvit to Bangkok. The plane was normal, except for comfortable seats, the food was decent, but not enough (so you need to take food with you). It’s bad that they flew out at lunchtime - I didn’t want to sleep. If you fly out in the evening, then you eat - and until the end of the flight - hrrr... it’s very convenient if you take a large pillow))) to Phuket... In general, we were very tired... This is perhaps the only thing that spoiled the mood.
Phuket. We flew quickly, in a little over an hour, fed...
Russian-speaking representatives of the travel agency met us at the airport, handed out SIM cards of a local operator (cheap calls home) and put us on a minibus and took us to the hotel. Arrived quickly. . .
The hotel immediately made us very happy with the appearance and the vast territory.
At the reception, however, there was some delay in settling, and we, at 30 degrees. heat - with warm tracksuits))). But, we quickly sat down on the Thais in broken English, and after 5 minutes. went to the room (luggage - next), having drunk cool lilac tea before that and smoking))
The room is great, has everything you need to relax. Refrigerator, air conditioning, mini bar, TV with one Russian channel, a huge bed with a bed made of clouds, a kettle, a telephone (even in the toilet), internet, an iron, a safe, a lot of towels, all soap (you don’t need to take anything with you) - updated every day, shower, bathroom, and most importantly - YOUR balcony and access to the pool - a real buzz!! ! Cleaning - every day (without our presence), plus - in the evening, when they came after dinner, they found various pleasant gifts on the bed - either a soft toy, then a handkerchief, then a keychain and, of course, lit aroma candles (very cool). In the room - you can leave everything, even money (for all the time not a penny was lost! ). But we still hid the documents in a safe. For all the time - 2 shortcomings: one night, uneducated Chinese screamed behind the wall, and 2 large cockroaches - one in the bathroom (was killed), the second was crawling near the pool (was expelled).
The territory is immersed in greenery, fragrant flowers. A lagoon winds around the hotel (on which free boats float and carry tourists to ride or on the territory of other hotels) and a huge pool.
The beach at the hotel is its own (with free towels and sunbeds), very clean (because due to the cost of rest, ours do not go, and most are Germans and Japs (very decently behaved). On the beach you can dine with fresh fruit cocktails ) very tasty, but expensive. The sea is warm, but not very transparent (not impressed). On the territory of the hotel and the beach - Lakki (elephant) walks and with pleasure earns money and fruits for the opportunity to take a picture. By the way, it's also free.
Nutrition. Unfortunately, the price included only breakfasts, but WHAT..... Buffets))) burst from the number of goodies (I want to highlight pancakes....eh) - these are not breakfasts, but super complex dinners, I would say! ! ! DELIGHT!!!!
We dined either on excursions (for food - no complaints) or, if we stayed at the hotel, on the beach with fruit.
Dinner, at the reception, we were offered to go to a restaurant belonging to the hotel... Hmm... yes, out of ignorance, of course we went there, but for the first and last time... Why? 1. Very expensive (no fancy seafood dinner + champagne = 500 bucks). 2. seafood - not live, conclusion - after cooking they became a bit dry.
After such a trip, a girl from the Sayama travel agency, who met with us on the second day, offering a bunch of excursions, told us about the Lotus cafe. To get to it, having previously booked a table at the reception, you can either take five minutes along the beach or use free transport - a tuk-tuk (who doesn’t know - a small open cheerful truck))) to go a little longer than to go, so we walked along the beach all the time.
In Lotus - always packed (despite the myriad of eateries). Why? ))) 1. Seafood - live and swim in aquas (you come, choose, and then - enjoy))2. Live music (somehow they even sang in Russian). 3. Good service. 4. Very reasonable prices for everything. And in general - just a great atmosphere of the institution. Dinner - only there!!!
Excursions. Be sure to go to Fantasi (elephant theater), rafting (a sea of u200bu200bpleasures), on about. Similan + snorkeling (mini Maldives), you can ride elephants in the park, which is a five-minute walk from the hotel. I advise a free sightseeing tour (aimed more at buying souvenirs and fruits), but not bad, especially if you are in Thailand for the first time.
Separately about massage. Excellent, but very expensive. You can try, at least for an hour. Keep within min 200 bucks for two).
Tip: you need to go at least 2 weeks. And then only the flight will be remembered)))
Have a good rest!! !
True, we did not go into the rooms, but I'm sure that if the territory is so amazing, then the rooms are fine.
We had dinner there in the restaurant "grill something there", even the restaurants they have are more modern and the place in front of the reception, in the open space, is reserved for a concert venue with live performances. Like a lounge bar, super, but we have a small corner in Dusite, where a Thai singer sings to the phonore. In general, to be honest, a house for pensioners. There are old people around, they are people too, but I didn’t want that (( too quiet, too dull and outdated. But I’ll return to Angsanu, there we saw quite a big children’s town, fenced with a fence. Swing slides, all this is covered with a canopy. The kids won’t burn , and Dusite doesn't have all that. So parents or young couples and a little older, if you are not retired, relax in Angsane.
You will like it much better there. For the first time in my life, I flew so far with a hotel. Bought in Dusite for a Dusit Thani Club room on the ground floor with sea access with private patio, yes great but oppressed by a lot of old couples and not a very modern hotel.
The Banyan Tree is also included in the same Laguna chain, we did not choose it because of too much privacy and solitude, we would have gone completely silly. But you have to go and have a look. They have the most luxurious in this chain, but they themselves say so the quietest. There are only villas. I want to tell you, we found out late that from each hotel in this chain there are 5 or 6 of them, either a free minibus shuttle or a ferry every 20 minutes. We sailed on the ferry. And there are a lot of good shops there, Laguna village seems to be. Like this. This review is for the hotel only. But the sea is gentle everywhere, and it pleased. It was worth visiting Thailand for this ; -)
Bomb hotel, different types of greenery, pools and food 5.
The islands, well, you need to see it. The only drawback is the sea, since during this period it is not calm, but this did not prevent us from jumping on the waves. I want to immediately forewarn, do not swim even a couple of meters, you may not return back, there was a sad experience, rescuers helped.
I don't understand people who fly thousands of miles to swim in a pool. In general, the country for rest is just super!! ! Wear sunscreen with at least SPF40. From mosquitoes (do not forget to close the balconies for the evening) and from allergies, take something just in case! Have a good rest everyone!
