Hotel Buzz: Phuket Welcomes Angsana

It's time for a renaissance in Phuket. We hear that Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts will be taking over operations of the Sheraton Grande Laguna Phuket when the contract expires on June 30.

Fresh face: From July 1 through December 1, the hotel will shut down for a head-to-toe renovation costing a hefty $30 million. The new look will apply to all rooms, meeting facilities and public spaces. Upon reopening, it will be rebranded under Banyan Tree's sister brand, Angsana Hotels & Resorts, and dubbed Angsana Laguna Phuket.

The 384-key hotel will sit in Bang Tao Bay and will offer a destination beach club, a treehouse-inspired Kids' Club and a Rice Bar featuring rice-based Asian favorites. Other notables include an Angsana Spa, an Angsana retail gallery, meeting space and a 3,850-square-foot ballroom.
