10. As Good As It Gets Service. Last but definitely not least, a real highlight at Angsana Laguna is the quality of the people - and clearly their selection, training, and most importantly their can-do attitude. They really do go the extra mile.

Be it at the hotel spa, or in any of the F&B establishments, at Front Desk and with any of the management team you may meet, all staff share a common denominator, they're at the top of their profession in this 'Land of Smiles'.

Leading the way by example, by personally enhancing the experiences of every guest he comes into contact with, is Brian Connelly, the General Manager at Angsana. Mr. Connelly has over 35 years of leadership in the hospitality management in Asia Pacific, Middle East and United States. When asked about his current assignment he said,

"I’m very excited and proud to be part of this beachfront resort, the flagship establishment of the Angsana Group. In terms of size it’s one of the top 5 properties in Phuket, with 402 rooms, and we provide a full range of accommodation choices for guests, from luxury 5* rooms to amazing villas, all set in 600 acres of parkland."

Asked about what surprised him most when he arrived in Thailand he said, "For one the food is truly outstanding here, the depth of flavours, from the best street food in the world to Thai Palace cuisine."

When asked what are the essential things to do while on holiday in Phuket, he offers this advice, "Take a boat trip around the islands of Phang Nga bay with its emerald-green waters and limestone cliffs..."

Brian continues, "Go to Leam Phromthep on the island's southernmost hill to see the sunset, visit Big Buddha, enjoy Thai seafood, and then party at Xana Beach Club (at Angsana Laguna Phuket!)".
