Phuket : The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has been voted the Best Family Resort in Thailand in the Holidays with Kids magazine's 2013 Readers' Choice Survey.
The Australian publication said of the new Outrigger property in Phuket: "Enjoy a game of golf or a spa treatment...while the kids are entertained with special programs at Koh Kids [the resort's kids' club]. They'll also love the extensive water park, featuring waterfalls and a waterslide for watery family fun. Outrigger's stylish new rooms combine the best of contemporary décor with Thai accents for a truly unique beachside holiday."
The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort General Manager, Tony Pedroni, said: "With our water slide, wide-spread water features, numerous supervised activities at the Koh Kids Club, and visits by Candy the baby elephant, children can be entertained for hours on end while parents relax. It's an ideal set up with all the attractions and activities of Phuket at hand."
Over 4,000 Holiday with Kids readers voted in the survey which was conducted in August. The publication noted: "These [award winning] hotels and resorts have managed to exceed the expectations of their guests in just about every area. Whether for outstanding customer service, facilities that are a cut above, the high standard of accommodation or the range of family-friendly activities on offer, each resort stands out from the pack and offers an experience that families love enough to rave about."
