The Laguna area over the years has probably been the leading area for expats to start their new life in Phuket and it’s always been a mystery why the lack of more shops were not available to the area. Last September the Phuket Asset Ltd announced their project Explorer – Phuket a mixture of Condominiums, Pool Villas, Shop Houses and the jewel in the development has to be the large shopping mall approximately the size of the Central Festival mall nearby to Phuket Town or Patong’s Jungceylon Mall .
After passing the site today and seeing the first contractors on the ground, in my opinion it can’t be built fast enough and I am sure residents in the Laguna, Bang Tao, Surin and surronding areas would have to agree. Already popular in the area is the small Tesco supermarket and more and more small delis. Combine this with Alan Zeeman’s Paradise Group plans to redevelop the area near the Surin Plaza which was made famous for the location of its Silk restaurant which has now been relocated to the company’s stunning Andara Resort in Kamala .
All this must make the Laguna area one of the most western friendly areas in Phuket, and yet it still holds on to its charm with a small village feel about it. There are more types of property available in the area from large Sea view villas to more modest condominiums .
