Laguna Phuket Awarded Best Sports Venue in Thailand

In a ceremony held last November, Asia’s premier resort, the outstanding Laguna Phuket, was named Best Sports Event Venue or Facility in Thailand. Laguna Phuket took home Gold at the Sports Industry Awards & Conference (SPIA Asia) 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand.

For three consecutive years, Laguna Phuket has won awards at SPIA Asia, however, the 2018 Gold award is a higher recognition than the Silver and Bronze credentials the resort’s world-renown Laguna Phuket Triathlon has won in the category of Best Amateur Sports Event of the Year in Thailand in both 2017 and 2016.

SPIA Asia 2018 has increasingly grown in popularity and now includes 47 Asian countries. The sports conference and awards gala features 21 distinct categories with a focus on professional and community endeavors. In 2018, 450 entries were received for an individual panel of industry experts and the entries were judged accordingly for Gold, Silver and Bronze accolades.

A pioneer in sports tourism on the island of Phuket, the integrated Laguna Phuket Resort first introduced its Laguna Phuket Triathlon in 1994. The event attracted athletes from around the world, including Australia, Europe and the USA. The Laguna Phuket Triathlon not only functioned as a grand sporting event, but also as a wonderful opportunity to showcase the uniqueness of the Laguna Phuket Resort as well as the beauty and charm of Phuket. The triathlon was broadcast within Thailand as well as television programs overseas. The first Laguna Phuket Triathlon was a smashing success, and the event has continued to be held in high regards throughout the years.

Sports Tourism at Laguna Phuket continues to go from strength to strength. February 2019 saw the venue host the inaugural Thai Fight Phuket, an internationally televised sports entertainment event to both highlight and showcase the sport of Muay Thai.

In March and April, the award-winning Laguna Golf Phuket will host a variety of activities including a PGA Tours Series as well as the 4th Laguna Phuket Hospitality Challenge, which is a charity golf tournament. The month of May will see the All Thailand Golf Tour’s Singha Laguna Phuket Open return to the golf course.

In June, the Laguna Phuket Marathon takes place and the highly anticipated Laguna Phuket Triathlon will once again happen in November. Laguna Phuket keeps a busy schedule throughout the year, and new sporting events are currently in the line-up. Coming soon to Laguna Phuket include a series of water sports, extreme sports and obstacle races. The combined sporting events will further cement Laguna Phuket’s status as a heavyweight in the sports tourism industry as well as a unique event venue.
