Dusit Thani Laguna

Phuket, Thailand

Set beside the crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea, the beachside Dusit Thani is an idyllic retreat removed from the hustle and bustle of Phuket City and Patong Beach. Bright and airy guest rooms feature all the modern amenities and offer private balconies (deluxe lagoon rooms overlook the lagoon). Resort facilities include a large swimming pool, tennis courts, fitness center, and five on site restaurants offering a variety of cuisine (be sure to try the award-winning Ruen Thai, noted for its wonderful Thai cuisine; they also offer cooking classes).
