It could be said that no tourists that come to Thailand will leave without ever setting foot on a beach somewhere in Southern Thailand. Blue sky, green sea, fine-grained sand, beautiful island. What’s not to love? And one of the famous destinations in this region is Hat Yai city, Songkla. And within Hat Yai, there is this one hotel that recently opened that is on its way to becoming a new landmark in this province. That hotel is Laguna Grand Hotel & Spa Songkla, and LifeSara has been there, and we can tell you all about it!
Laguna Grand Hotel & Spa Songkla rises to the top among other luxurious hotels in this region thanks to its fully equipped facilities and amenities. Locate in the heart of Songkla city, this hotel is in the center of tourist attractions that shorten your travel time considerably, such as Samila beach which is only 30 minutes drive away.
At this point, you might get confused about why is Songkla such an important name in Thai tourism when it lacks iconic destinations like Phuket or PP island. But despite that factor, Songkla is still full to the brim with beautiful beaches, delicious local delicacies, and many cultural attractions. Except it is quieter and much more friendly than other tourist traps nearby!
And since you’re going for a more private, quiet, but no less enjoyable trip to the south anyway, why not splurge a bit more and go for an enjoyable stay as well? Pampered yourself a little by staying here and chilling in this plush and comfortable hotel so you can go out fully energized, and looking forward to returning at the end of the day.
Songkla’s Well-Designed Deluxe Hotel With Complete Facilities.
Laguna Grand Hotel will impress you from the first sight with its grand design, then follows up with the warm welcome that greets you from your first step into the lobby. This hotel also has a large outdoor swimming pool with many water activities available, a fitness center, a spa, and a hotel bar with many drinks you can choose to your liking! No need to cram your schedule full to avoid spending time in the hotel, because this place is guaranteed to give you just as good time as going out there!
The Hotel Room Where You Can Feel Right At Home
Laguna’s room comes with every amenities you could ever need from a hotel room. Air condition that turns on automatically, a separate living room with widescreen tv, a safe deposit box of your own, and a large bathroom with a huge bathtub that you can lounge in while taking a sip of your champagne.
Even a small detail doesn’t escape Laguna’s attention when it comes to customers’ convenience, such as a proper working desk for a digital nomad, and an electric kettle for your every need!
But of course, no hotel amenities can satisfy you if the bed itself is horrible, which thankfully, totally not the case here! Laguna’s bed and pillows are very soft and comfortable, very good to rest your weary bones after working long hours for many months. Every bed comes with its own power socket so you can plug in your device and scroll through the screen lazily on your bed.
An Impeccable Restaurant With Professional Chef
If you want to take a break from the hot and spicy local delicacies, Laguna itself also being a great choice for an eating experience! In their classy decorated dining room, you can feast on pork knuckle, pizza, roasted lamb shank, or just a classic steak cooked to perfection. We can totally recommend the steak dish, as our order arrived covered in a wonderful butter scent, and this medium-rare meat sported a pink and soft texture that just melts in your mouth!
No need to get into the kitchen to see that only the professional chef works here, just take a look at all the foods that show up on your table and you can see that this is indeed a 5 stars experience that can’t be found anywhere else in Songkla!
Toasting The Moon With A Delightful Drink In Laguna Bar
Another thing that can make or break any hotel’s reputation is its bar. If you’re looking for some quality cocktails or mocktails that worthy of a full-moon party experience, but much more concerned about safety and health than to make your way straight to Koh Pha-Ngan, just sit down in Laguna Bar! You can have just as good a time here!

From the colorful and fruity Daiquiri, a strong, full-body Old Fashion, or a shaken, not stirred Martini, you can have them all right here in this bar.
