Bangtao, Layan, and Laguna on the north west coast of Phuket is a premium area, featuring top restaurants, a manicured golf course, funky beach clubs, wine bars, horse riding on the beach, and premium shopping; making it a cool place to hang out.
The Bangtao & Layan Beaches are actually one stretch of sand and far less crowded than the other main beach resorts on the West Coast.
Laguna, is a private development spanning 2km of beachfront and a significant area behind it, consisting of five-star hotels, lagoons, property developments, a golf course, recreation facilities, and much more. There is also a free shuttle bus that transports guests around the area.
Condo and apartment development is focused inside Laguna and the vicinity just outside, allowing owners to benefit from being within walking distance of the premium facilities as well as the beach.
Laguna and the nearby area draw many visitors and attract investors in terms of the well-kept public space, unobstructed sidewalks, manicured lawns, and a well-maintained natural environment. The opportunity to invest in a property in an ordered and well-managed area that is properly zoned makes this area of particular interest for property investors.
Bangtao/Layan is the closest prime beach resort to the airport, being only 20 minutes away. This is a big tick in the box considering Phuket’s increased road traffic and resulting in a rise in journey times to resorts situated in the South of the island.
From an investment point of view, the downside to this area is the lack of sea views due to the lack of hills but the upside is very competitive property prices in a premium location.
