Outrigger Laguna

Hi,

Looking at staying at Outrigger Laguna.How far is it to shopping areas of Karon and Paton? .Not sure if we should stay there the whole time or split time at another resort in Karon.

Thanks,Clare.

HI Clare,

Outrigger is still a very new hotel, great location in Laguna, From there its a 30min Drive along the coast to Patong, their you will find all the shopping and restaurants any persons heart will desire.

Karon not so special, a few shops and the shore a bit dangerous with the monsoon season, allot of rip currents, better to go more south to Kata South, bur also to be careful for the currents, to enjoy better swimming you need to be on the east side, Point Yamu by Como send guest to a private island for free and the views is amazing 360 degrees pano views. Westin Siray Bay is also a good option.

Regards

Sydney, Australia

Hi Claire, we just returned from a week at the Outrigger and loved it! We have young kids and having stayed at other resorts previously in Phuket (Holiday Inn, Hilton, Kata Beach) this was by far the best. The waterslide was fabulous and we all spent hours in the pool, the baby elephant was much loved and it was overall a great experience.

We were able to get a local taxi from reception to Patong for 700 baht each way, and it was an easy trip. Also easy to get a taxi back for the same price (we got a taxi from Jungceylon each time to get back). Much preferred a great hotel and travelling in a couple of days!! Highly recommend Outrigger.
