Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, an upscale full-service beach resort on the north-west coast of Thailand’s largest island, recently underwent enhancement work and is now ready to provide Thai inspired gracious hospitality to guests during the upcoming high season. Owned and operated by Dusit International, one of Thailand’s foremost hotel and property development companies, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket first opened in November 1987 as one of the island’s finest resorts.
Located on the pristine Bang Tao beach within the Laguna Phuket resort complex, it has since served as Dusit’s flagship resort in the south, delivering the company’s renowned gracious hospitality to guests from key markets worldwide.
To maintain the resort’s competitive advantage, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket underwent a major renovation commencing June 2017 and continuing into 2018. The refurbishment of its guest rooms and suites in the North Wing, and the recent upgrading of its signature, award-winning Italian restaurant and public areas were recently completed in time for the upcoming high season to welcome its loyal, returning guests back.
The renovated guest rooms and suites now include native woods and Thai fabrics in vibrant colours and tones to promote a sense of tranquillity. The signature, award-wining Italian restaurant has been separated into two zones, fine dining and relaxing lounge, providing convenience and a better atmosphere for all diners.
All of these elements have been completed in time for the upcoming celebration of the resort’s 31st Anniversary Gala Dinner, on 23 November 2018, where hotel guests, media, and VIPs will be invited for a night of wining and dining and a charity auction featuring artwork created by local artists. Part of the proceeds from the dinner, plus all money raised from the auction, will be donated to the Operation Smile Thailand Foundation (OST).
