There are a number of deals around this week, especially as Thailand enters its low season. Yes, it’s really the ‘rainy’ season, but you can still have a good time. (Continue reading →)
Here’s a roundup of some of the hotel deals that I’ve found or have crossed my inbox this week:
Ansana, the new ‘lite’ brand from resort operator Banyan Tree, has opened their first Thai resort, in Phuket. The ‘new’ Angsana Laguna Phuket occupies the old Sherataon Laguna resort, which has been extensively remodeled to the tune of 30 Million Dollars. The new rooms range from the 40 square meter Laguna Room through one and two-bedroom lofts and on to the 490 square meter, four bedroom Angsana Grande Pool Residence.
The resort offers several restaurants, and will have its own beach club early next year. Since it’s part of the integrated Laguna resort complex, you can also dine at the other hotels and resorts in the complex and charge to your room. There’s also a full service spa, of course.
The official opening date is 1 December 2011. There’s a special introductory offer starting at 6,100 Baht per night, including breakfast for two, for stays between 1 December 2011 and 27 February 2012. If you book two or more nights, you’ll get a 3,000 Baht hotel credit that can be used at any dining outlet or at the spa. For a booking of three nights or more you’ll get a complimentary 90 minute massage in addition to the 3,000 Baht credit.
Visit the Angsana web site for booking and additional information.
Outrigger Laguna Phuket, part of the huge Laguna enclave in Bangtao, has added 19 more one, two and three-bedroom suites. The added rooms are in a new self-contained ‘mountain view’ area of the resort, with its own swimming pool, pool bar, gym and restaurant.
All of the new rooms have fully equipped kitchens, separate living rooms and private balconies. The three-bedroom top floor suites have en-suite bathrooms for each of the three bedrooms.
As an introductory offer, Outrigger is running a "Stay three, pay two" promotion. Guests booking at the best available rate for stays before 31 October 2011 will get three nights’ stay for the price of two nights. See the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort web site for more information.
