Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket Review

Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket is a beautiful classic hotel in Bang Tao Beach, in a prime location on the west coast of Phuket Island. The resort has an elegant Thai design, and the rooms are superb; most are just a few steps from the beach. This hideaway is a perfect place to escape frantic city life, relax and enjoy the beauty of the Andaman Sea.

Beach Score: 6 / 10 – Hotel Score: 6 / 10 – What’s around: 6 / 10 – Affordability: 6 / 10

The Dusit Thani is a well-known hotel in Phuket; it has been around for a long time and was recently renovated. Its elegant classic Thai architecture and decoration kept it relevant, offering a true Thai experience that modern hotels often lack. As you walk to the reception through a high-ceiling hallway, the sculpture and orchid flowers create a relaxing atmosphere. The friendly and soft-spoken staff leads you to an elegant reception where check-in is done smoothly and quickly.

The hotel’s main building is built along the beachfront, offering ocean views or even beach access to most rooms.

The beach

The beach in front of the hotel is wide, with beautiful white sand. The sea is clear and blue during the high season (December to May). There are plenty of beach massages and small local restaurants on the beach.

The rooms

We stayed in a beachfront room on the ground floor, which was superb. The terrace with two loungers was perfect for relaxing with the sea breeze and enjoying the sea view across the manicured lawn.

The room is spacious and well-decorated, with a great sitting area facing the beach through a floor-to-ceiling glass window. The bed is large and dangerously comfortable. The bathroom is well equipped and provides all the expected amenities from a 5-star hotel. The bathtub is large, and welcome to relax at the end of an exploration day. There are plenty of plugs to charge all your devices, and the espresso machine was a nice treat!

Restaurants and bars

There are five restaurants and bars at Dusit Laguna Phuket: La Trattoria, Laguna Cafe, Ruen Thai, Casuarina Beach Restaurant and the Horizon Lounge.

La Trattoria

La Trattoria is probably the best-known restaurant in the hotel, and outside guests frequently come for dinner. The restaurant is spacious, white and beautiful. Chef Lucas prepares excellent Italian dishes and a modern menu you should try.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
