New events centre set to open in Phuket in 2020

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort will open a new meeting and events centre in January 2020.

General manager Tony Pedroni says the flexible options that the new facility provides are set to transform the award-winning beachfront resort into “the complete meeting venue”.

The new Similan Ballroom meetings and events centre will offer 640 square metres of flexible meeting and exhibition space including a pillar-less ballroom with six-metre high ceilings with movable partition walls.

The main ballroom (448 sqm) can be separated into three multi-purpose function spaces to create six dedicated meetings rooms.

The new set-up features a large pre-function area, a VIP lounge, space for 350 guests theatre-style, and includes the resort’s existing three meeting rooms totalling 320 sqm.

The new standalone convention centre has a dedicated private entrance to the left of the resort lobby to ensure ease of access, group privacy and event flexibility.

“The magnificent new Similan event space compliments the ever-expanding range of services and visitor experiences offered in Laguna Phuket and the immediate neighbourhood,” said Pedroni.

“The whole area is now defined by superlative shopping, entertainment, dining and active lifestyle options for sport, ecotourism and responsible event hosting.”
