Phuket (Thailand) – August 20, 2019 (travelindex) – Boat Lagoon Resort in Phuket, because of its location is often a miss for many tourist that plan a trip to Phuket and we ask why? Tourist that plan to visit Phuket for the 1st time always seek out the popular beaches that the island is known for such as Patong and Karon but almost everyone would book a trip to Phi Phi islands which inevitably leads them to Phuket Boat Lagoon where the transfer boats wait to take you to these popular islands which is where the resort is situated. In essence is quite rightly situated in the heart of Phuket but very few know this.
Being the only Resort with an international standard Marina, Boat Lagoon Resort is located only 20 minutes from the Airport and is close to Phuket town and other beaches are also just a 30 minute drive from the resort. Established 20 years ago due to the demand mostly from charter operators and boat owners for their guest and crew such as Sunsail, the largest bare boat operators back in the days to be able to enjoy accommodation conveniently without having to travel out. Today with the growth of tourism, Boat Lagoon Resort gained its popularity amongst tourist and eventually became accessible and easy for agents to promote groups and conferences as well.
Furnished with 270 rooms all styled in a nautical flair with some rooms over looking the beautifully landscaped pool with its lush greenery cascading around the resort block and some rooms that face the Marina overlooking the elegant moored yachts. Breakfast is served every morning by the pool side and is set on a nice backdrop, a perfect way to relax after a jog around the complex or some tennis even.
The advantage of the resort is the village like concept that was created in the Marina which boast a wide range of restaurants, a well equipped super market, a spa and even an ice skating arena for the younger ones. The resort arranges shuttle services from the main lobby to these places if the walk seems a bit too far or if the heat gets to you.
When asked if location was a challenge for tourist, it’s Deputy Managing Director Khun Boon Yongsakul stated with pride “We have branded ourselves as Phuket’s Most Lively Marina, contrary to what people think I reckon location is our best selling point as we are 20 to 30 from the airport, 15 minutes to the historical Phuket town and it only take takes half an hour for island tours coupled with our array of services at the village from spas to top notch grocers and a pharmacy, we have it all.”
Khun Boon also continued to state that “ Elevating the resort is in the pipeline for a couple of years now and we will announce it at the right time” when asked about the resort being a tad bit tired as compared to the newer resorts in and around Phuket.
Boat Lagoon Resort is aiming to make the Resort, primarily a family friendly resort and destination, because of its wide options for MICE groups for team building and with their state of the art event space it will undoubtedly be a popular resort in Phuket with its new direction and aspirations to make this into the next talked about Resort in town.
