We stayed here as a family of 4 just this week. What a wonderful experience! Love that everything is so new and clean.. obviously, since its a brand new resort! I also really liked how the whole resort was designed with a v modern feel to it whilst maintaining the local/open air concept. The Family Room was nicely laid out & spacious. Its great that the boys have their own corner to sleep in without having to worry abt them falling off since 3 sides are walled up. And we could also dry our stuff out on the patio. As for the R&R facilities, our 2 boys especially love the slide at the pool - sliding down on the mats was fast and fun even for us adults! The entire pool area is nice & big & provides variety for them to move around a bit (in our opinion, its got the best pool facilities in the Laguna area!). And being situated right on the beach is a huge plus. I loved that it was so convenient to move back & forth between beach & pool area. The other thing which I liked was having a range of local provision stores to the side of the beach/pool area selling local food stuff, ice cream, beach stuff and they even have a local thai restaurant which was quite nice!
Unfortunately, the weather was on the wet side and we were completely rained out on Mon; which meant the kids spent the whole day @ Koh Kids Club where they could have their lunch, do art/crafts, play with their friends etc whilst the parents went for a nice spa! We really did appreciate having this service. All in, was v pleased with the experience (and the low season pricing!) and have been recommending the resort to all our friends. Well done Outrigger!
Suggestions to make it even better:
- Breakfast buffet: maybe it was low season but I felt that variety was a little lacking.. esp after 4 days of it.
- Koh Kids: again, a bit more variety in activities wld be good esp for older kids (eg.6-9yrs).
Other things to note:
- Oasis spa just outside the hotel is absolutely wonderful. They provide free transport in a nice car (which has this lovely lemongrass scent & makes u feel so relaxed the moment u get in) & good massages for reasonable price. We took adv of its 30% discount for online booking - so easy to book online, receive confirmation & the car shows up on time. S$50 all in for a 1hr aromatherapy hot oil massage in a lovely setting. Definitely recommend it!
- Pesto restaurant: again free transport in Laguna area. The best meal we had! Excellent local thai food for a great price. 4 adults, 5kids, 10+ dishes, THB1,600 all in.
