Outrigger Phuket Laguna Phuket Beach Resort is located in Bangtao beach. There are 2 Outriggers in Phuket; the other one is Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas which is an all-suite and villa resort located not too far apart. The resort is part of the Laguna group of resorts which consist of Angsana, Banyan Tree, Cassia, Dusit Thani, Allamanda, Movenpick and Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas.

The advantages of being in a Laguna group of resorts are the endless facilities and activities guest can have from each resort. Each resort can be accessed by free shuttle busses that run that run all day in a loop to each resort. There are also free boat trips that go from one resort to the other through multiple lagoons that connects each resorts.
360 Virtual tour: Club Premium Sea Front Room
Outrigger offers many room types to choose from, our room was the Club Premium Sea Front. The room is very spacious; there is a day bed by the window and a balcony. The large sunken bath tub is a very unique feature in the bathroom.
What I like the most is the sea view; from the room you can enjoy the sea at a close range, you can even hear the sound of the waves. As a club room, guest can take advantage of daily snacks and beverage throughout the day at the club lounge and in the evening there are special complimentary canapés and cocktails period.
360 Virtual tour: Pool
The resort offers many activities and facilities. The large pool has many areas guest can enjoy. The modern landscape design makes the pool a very attractive place to be.
Outrigger has a very stunning beach; nothing beats beautiful aqua color of the sea, clear water, clean sand and blue sky. If you are into water sports or just learning it, Outrigger offers; kayak, sailing and wind surfing.
Wind surfing would be the most physical and most adrenaline rushing activity. During monsoon season water sports activities are provided at the lagoon which connects to the Dusit Thani resort and the newly open Cassia Phuket, elsewise water sports are held in the open sea.
360 Virtual tour: Sunset Beach
During our stay we tried the food here from the room service, the Club (for club room guest only) and the restaurants. The food here does not disappoint.
From the room service my favorite was the The Edgewater Burger (450) Angus beef, apple wood smoked bacon, cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce, French fries; the burger was done just right juicy with a crust. The chef were very consistent with the quality of the food, I had another one the next day the quality was the same.
360 Virtual tour: EdgeWater
There are 3 restaurants: Edgewater; beach and poolside serving simple one dish delights, Metzo’s; one of the few Middle Eastern and Mediterranean bistro you can find in Phuket (see review).
360 Virtual tour: Locavore
Locavore is the main all day dining restaurant. The buffet breakfast had wide selections of food items from western to Asian.
We also tried dinner at Locavore; Grilled meats were very good.
Australian Rib eye steak (900)
Australian lamb chops (950)
Banana chocolate cake with wild berry compote (280)
Homemade ice cream (100)
Wines were reasonably price at around 300 baht per glass.
As the first time to this resort chain from Hawaii, I feel that Outrigger Phuket Laguna Phuket Beach Resort fits very well in this highly saturated 5 star resort scene in Phuket. The facilities, the well maintain garden, pool and beach area, the good food and most of all the friendly staffs makes Outrigger standout and appeals to many type of guest.
