When considering hotels for golfers, a lot goes into the process. Is the location good? Is the service good for golfers? Is there a bar at the hotel? Are there shops, entertainment and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel? Is it clear, comfortable and safe? When considering the Outrigger Surin Beach Resort, the hotel ticks all the boxes, and is definitely a great property for golfers to consider while in Phuket.
Outrigger Surin Beach Resort is located just off the shores of the majestic Surin Beach, on the west coast of the island of Phuket, Thailand. Just steps from the white-sand beaches Phuket is known for, Outrigger Surin Beach Resort is a recently-renovated hotel that strives to stick with the beachy feel Outrigger is known for. What better than being on holiday in a beach destination, and feeling like you’re alongside the tall palms and sand of the beach?
The rooms have all been refreshed and the team at Outrigger Surin Beach Resort has left no detail to spare. While there are various room types available, we recommend the Surin Studio Room. This spacious 40sqm room offers an open feel with either King or Twin Bed configurations.
The room comes with a balcony that overlooks one of the hotel’s two swimming pools, and has a seating area on the balcony to enjoy a few drinks after a long day of golf, or to just read a book and relax after a day in the pool. The Surin Studio Room has a very light and fresh feel to it, which adds to the comfort and relaxation of each stay.
For the golfers who like to dress to impress, there is an ironing board and iron in each room, and each room comes with a safety deposit box to keep all the important bits in.
If you’re looking to go a bit bigger for your stay, we would recommend considering the Grand Surin Suite. This is a 70sqm room which has ample space and offers superior relaxation and comfort. The Grand Surin Suite is a duplex-style room, with a downstairs living area and upstairs bedroom.
Downstairs provides floor-to-ceiling windows with a very comfortable living space overlooking the pool and hotel gardens, perfect for enjoying some drinks after golf or getting the group together to go through the day’s scores and see who takes the spoils.
Upstairs, a fantastic nights’ sleep awaits you with a very comfortable bedroom and another open and spacious design, with the continuation of the beachside feel that the hotel has throughout the grounds.
Outrigger Surin Beach Resort has two swimming pools on site, both of which are spacious and relaxing. The pools have beach chairs beside them, allowing golfers to kick back and relax on their day off, while soaking up some vitamin-D, and a place to dry off after enjoying some time in the swimming pool.
One thing we highly recommend at Outrigger Surin Beach Resort is a meal in the Nalu Bar & Grill. The food on the menu is second-to-none and there are many interesting and inspiring dishes to choose from. Most of the dishes are cooked using a custom made wood fire grill, giving a unique flavour and a natural heat to all dishes. It’s impossible to go wrong with any dish, but we recommend the 3 Ways Tomato Toast and the Pulled Pork Mac n’ Cheese.
Enjoy the happy hour while sitting out looking towards the sea and the sunset. Either on the ground floor at Nalu Bar & Grill or at The Loft bar upstairs, which offers even better views of the sunset, the drinks are delicious and the views are spectacular.
Outrigger Surin Beach Resort is also close to many outside restaurants, massages, bars and of course, Surin Beach. All of this is within walking distance from the front of the hotel, saving golfers the requirement of getting a taxi or tuk-tuk to get around.
The hotel is also centrally located on the island, meaning it’s perfectly situated to get to all of the golf courses, being just a few minute’s driver from Laguna Golf Phuket, a maximum 30 minute drive to Blue Canyon Country Club as well as Phuket International Airport, and about 30 minutes to Red Mountain Golf Club and Loch Palm Golf Club.
When considering a golf trip to Phuket and looking for a hotel that provides fantastic service, is knowledgeable about what golfers require, has great rooms, excellent food and beverage and is also located perfectly for the golf, there’s no other hotel to consider than Outrigger Surin Beach Resort.
