Thailand, Phuket. July 02, 2020

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has won "Favourite Family Resort - International" in the Conde Nast Middle East Readers' Choice Awards 2020. Its sister property, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort came second in the "Favourite Beach Hotel - International" category.

The results were announced 24 June by Conde Nast Traveller, a leading consumer travel publication with regional editions around the world. Voting was open to travellers and readers of the publication.

Rhea Saran, Editor in Chief of the Conde Nast Middle East said: "I believe that right now, because things are difficult, that these awards are more important - and that we should celebrate the achievements of the travel industry."

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has established itself as a family favourite among resorts since opening in 2013. The property features a large free-form beachfront swimming pool, organised activities for families, a Coral Kids Club and specially-designed standard rooms that can sleep two adults and two children under 12.

Among many acclaimed resorts in the Maldives, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort in the south of the Maldivian archipelago stands out from the crowd due to its pristine beaches, island day trips, coral rehabilitation programme and spacious villas. The resort has its own marine biologist who leads scuba and snorkel outings. Even at night there are guided stargazing sessions on the beach using powerful telescopes.

"With Outrigger Resorts located only in premier beach destinations - our exclusive focus is providing warm, island-style hospitality in iconic locales," said Jeff Wagoner, President and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group. "Being named Favourite Family Resort and a Favourite Beach Hotel by Conde Nast Traveller readers is an honour and we're committed to continue safely providing authentic, memorable holidays by the sea."

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has previously won the "Best Resort (Service Excellence) - Asia Pacific" Award at the 2017 Travel Weekly Asia Readers' Choice Awards; "Best Luxury Family Hotel - Southeast Asia" in the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2016; "Best Restaurant Within a Hotel" global award at the International Hotel and Property Awards 2016 (for Metzo's); fourth best resort for families in Thailand in the 2015 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards; the property entered the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame for Excellence in 2019.

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort reopens to Thailand-based visitors from 1 July. Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort is currently scheduled to reopen on 1 October. Both properties are bookable now with a flexible booking and cancellation policy to give peace of mind in light of ongoing travel uncertainties.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
