Phuket Boat Lagoon was officially opened in 1994 and is Phuket’s first integrated marina complex. Located on the Klong Tha Rua, the circular marina allows for vessels up to 32 meters into moor. As part of a fully developed Marina Village, most sailors consider the Khun Kanit Yongsakul complex, named after the Founder and Chairman, to be on par with some of the top marinas around the world.

Strategically located in southern Thailand, the Phuket Boat Lagoon marina is only 20 kilometers from the airport, 15 kilometers to Kata, Karon and Patong Beaches and 8 kilometers to Phuket town. The spacious Marina is expanding and currently features 180 berths in the water, 144 on the hardstand and 30 dry stacking bays. New from September 2017 are travel lifts with a capacity of up to one hundred and twenty tons. Other facilities include a large concrete work area and concrete work ramp, as well as a fuel dock. There’s also easy access to WiFi throughout while changing rooms and hot showers are available at the resort.

The recently renovated Boat Lagoon Resort features on-site fully serviced apartments and 270 hotel rooms. Located on the ground floor of the marina area is ‘Lagoon Quay’, offering visitors an abundance of dining options and marine oriented businesses. Self-branded as “Phuket’s Most Lively Marina”, the entire development is a lifestyle destination for everyone to enjoy. Regular events and activities such as the “Boat Lagoon Weekend”, which takes place during high season from December until May, are organised where live music is played and speciality food stalls serve delicious meals. The destination is certainly a must visit in Phuket.
