Planning the perfect tropical getaway for you or your family can be challenging, especially if you’re not sure where to stay, what to see and do, or how to get the best local experience. That’s why, rather than you having to do hours and hours of research to complete an itinerary, we’ve compiled a list of our top recommendations for these points so that you can make the most of your next vacation! So, be sure to pack your favourite resort and casual wear pieces from the Bistro St. Tropez lineup and, of course, a pair or two of our premium men’s or boy’s board shorts and let’s help you plan your next trip to Phuket, Thailand.
Located halfway between Phuket International Airport and Patong Beach on the island’s west coast, what was once an abandoned tin mine, Bangtao Beach is now one of Phuket’s longest and most beautiful beaches. Spanning 6 km in length along the Andaman Sea, it is known for being a tropical bliss, making it a must-visit attraction. Although the northern end is fairly quiet, the southern end is home to several beachfront hotels and beach clubs, meaning you can expect a lively, entertaining atmosphere in the evenings.
During the day, Bangtao Beach is the perfect place to enjoy some fun in the sun! Hit the beach in your Bistro St. Tropez board shorts for some sunbathing, play in the shallows, build a sandcastle, or get out on the water to do some sailing or kayaking. Plus, many of the beach resorts offer things like massages and spa services, so be sure to double-check on what’s offered where you’re staying.
Hot tip: when deciding which of our premium men’s or boy’s board shorts to bring, opt for a unique design so you or your child will always stand out and won’t get separated from the group as easily! Ultimately, as one of the largest and most pristine beaches in the area, it’s no wonder Bangtao Beach has become home to some of the most premier resorts, including the Laguna Phuket luxury resorts.
The Laguna Phuket resorts sit adjacent to 3 km of Bangtao beachfront and span 1,000 acres of lush tropical parkland, making it a true holiday paradise and a premier destination resort in Phuket. When Laguna Phuket first began to transform Bangtao Beach from its original status as a tin mine, it was a slow yet rewarding process culminating in the award-winning eco-project you see today.
Now, in all its glory, the Laguna Phuket luxury resorts feature 7 deluxe hotels, expansive facilities and services, as well as a wide range of activities for the whole family. Not to mention, it has an award-winning 18-hole golf course, several spas, boutique shopping, and endless restaurants and bars. In addition, both Bangtao Beach and the Laguna Phuket resorts are family-friendly and group-orientated, so people of all ages can enjoy their time in Phuket and create lifelong memories.
In other words, when you choose to stay at the Laguna Phuket resorts, there will never be a shortage of things to do. If the resort activities mentioned above don’t suit you, there are local beach shacks in front of the Laguna hotels that sell everything from snacks and drinks to beachwear and tours, meaning you can get the full Phuket experience while hardly leaving your resort.
