    Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort hailed as ‘Best Family Resort in Thailand’

    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.”

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
