Media Release
02-Nov-2006

 Guests staying at Laguna Phuket this November will get the chance to watch the 2006-07 Ashes Australia vs England cricket series in luxury and the right time zone amid lush tropical surroundings and sun, sand, and sea!
 
Tickets to this year’s Ashes were sold out on the day they were released, which is no surprise as the 2005 Ashes was the first time in 18 years that England won the series from Australia. Die-hard cricket fans who were not able to get tickets will have the option of either watching the Ashes series broadcast on television in the middle of the night at home in the UK, or to vacation at Laguna Phuket, Asia’s finest destination resort, and enjoy watching the series during daylight hours.
 
Laguna Phuket hotels are all set to welcome cricket fans during the Ashes series with special viewing areas:  Laguna Beach Resort guests will be able to watch the Ashes at Chai Nam Bar, Dusit Laguna Resort guests can go to Casuarina Beach Restaurant & Pub, Sheraton Grande Laguna Beach Resort will show the series at its Chinese restaurant, Tea House, Allamanda Laguna Phuket will use its newly-renovated Courtyard Café, and Banyan Tree Phuket will make available to Ashes fans its golf clubhouse restaurant, Banyan Cafe.
