Luxurious Laguna Phuket proves popular with Aussie guests

BLESSED with a great location that is easily accessible from Asia, Europe and Australia, Phuket has enjoyed healthy visitor numbers over the years with Australians consistently the third highest nationality of visitors to the island year after year.

With new and improved airline services consistently opening up access to the Thai tropical paradise, the island's destination resort Laguna Phuket is confident that its share of Aussie guests across its properties will again improve this year.

Laguna Phuket's host of attractions including an 18-hole golf course, five world-class spas and dedicated tour and corporate training companies - alongside the hotels' wide-ranging facilities - have proved popular with holidaymakers and business travellers alike.

Laguna Phuket's Debbie Dionysius says the growth of airline services reflects Phuket's growing appeal as a holiday and MICE destination.

"Many of our guests are Australians - young working professionals, retirees, families and groups who enjoy the feel of being home away from home, but with all the luxurious extras thrown in," said Dionysius.

"Every year, we welcome new and repeat guests - a trend we don't foresee slowing down anytime soon.

"Just twenty minutes from the airport, Laguna Phuket offers everything from stunning beaches, spectacular offshore islands and world-class golf, to luxury accommodation and cutting-edge conference facilities.

"Also, increasingly, our range of annual events including the Laguna Phuket International Marathon, Challenge Laguna Phuket Tri-Fest incorporating two major triathlons and the Summer Family Festival have all become major attractions for many of our Aussie guests," she said.
