The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort, a TCEB-certified MICE venue in Laguna Phuket, has opened its newest standalone meeting and events centre.
The two-storey complex has six function rooms amounting to 1,000m2 of space. The largest venue is the 448m2 Similan Ballroom on the first floor, which is pillarless and boasts six-metre-high ceilings and movable partition walls. It is good for 330 guests theatre-style, or 290 in a banquet setting.
Three smaller breakout rooms are on the second floor, with the largest being the 80m2 Tongfah and can hold a maximum of 70 people theatre-style. Regardless of chosen space, the entire complex is equipped with the latest audiovisual technology and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.
Events can also make use of a spacious pre-function area and VIP lounge, while a private entrance to the left of the resort lobby will be appreciated by event planners needing privacy for VIP guests.
Meanwhile, there are other four meeting venues ensconced within the resort’s main building, comprising the 716m2 Andaman Ballroom and three smaller spaces.
Green events will be central to Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort’s MICE offering. The property has removed all single-use plastics, and depending on the objectives of the meeting, guests have the option of participating in CSR initiatives. For instance, Outrigger has a long-term community relationship programme with Baan Khok Wat Mai primary school nearby.
