Laguna Waters

Bang Tao, Phuket, Thailand
10 people / 5 ensuite bedrooms
A delightful lakeside home surrounded by greenery and managed by friendly staff, Laguna Waters is ideal for large families or multigenerational groups looking for an oasis amidst Phuket's excitement. Spacious and self-contained, the five-bedroom villa is located within the upscale Laguna Phuket gated community, which offers an enviable sense of calm and safety.

The stylish decor is unpretentious yet classy, offering a home away from home alongside resort-type facilities. There's plenty to do within the villa, though you may find yourself languishing in the 14-metre private pool all day long. The jacuzzi does its part in relaxing those tired muscles and when you need to take things up a notch, you can always challenge others in your group to a game of billiards or go work out in the gym.

But the very concept of a lakeside manor begs you to spend the day outdoors. When not swimming, you could catch a tan stretched out on the sunbeds, get a massage at the poolside sala or enjoy a barbecue under the stars. Built over two levels, the villa's glass doors maximise on the lake views, opening onto the pool deck or upper floor terrace.

You will have access to a plethora of upmarket restaurants and wellness facilities including Banyan Tree and Angsana's Spas, accessible by complimentary shuttle bus which stops almost right outside the villa. If that wasn't enough, an 18-hole, par-71 award-winning golf course is also a mere 10-minute stroll away. Not to mention the quiet shores of Bang Tao Beach, easily within reach.

Walk out of the resort perimeter and you will find an array of chic boutiques, bespoke jewellery shops and affordable foot massage parlours. Conveniently placed fantastic restaurants, bakeries, bars and two well-stocked supermarkets selling imported items are also within a kilometre of the villa.

Laguna Waters is a hidden gem on the sunset coast of Phuket.
DINING
Start the day right with a wholesome continental or Asian breakfast served alfresco or indoors, as you prefer. If you wish to cook, you will find all the necessary equipment, and then some, in the modern kitchen. Groceries can be bought from nearby supermarkets or sourced by the Villa Manager for you.

The outdoor barbecue is wonderful for social evenings. For a nominal additional hire fee, we can arrange for a chef who will prepare delicious meals for your group. Groceries are charged at cost plus a 20% handling charge and 7% government tax, with a minimum shopping fee of THB 750.

But with so many eclectic restaurants at your doorstep, you are sure to be spoilt for choice. Be sure to try some of the authentic Thai restaurants in the area, splash out and dine at Dusit or Banyan Tree who offer superb Royal Thai Cuisine, or venture outside the complex and try Chili Kitchen or Tawah restaurant. If comfort food is what you seek, enjoy the range of cuisine offered at BAKE at the entrance of Laguna, where you can find sushi, pizza, fresh pasta, rotisserie chicken as well as freshly baked pastries, bread and coffee. If you venture further towards Boat Avenue, you will find everything from Mexican to French food. There is so much on offer.
