They are all less than 30 mins drive but Laguna is the nearest, only 5 mins from the door. Surin Village itself has excellent shopping outlets, local markets, wine retailers and spas.There is world class shopping in Patong and Phuket Town, 20-30 mins away. Some of Thailand's most famous National Parks are close by for kayaking, rafting, elephant trekking and long-tail boat trips. Finally, for scuba diving enthusiasts, some of the finest dive sites in the World await you, for day trips or longer, in the Andaman Sea.
Golf: Golf in Phuket is truly magnificent. Long famous for its unique marine life, pristine beaches and vibrant night-life, the exotic island of Phuket has now gained international recognition as being the golfing centre of Asia.
Golf is played all year round in Phuket and with a total of seven, 18-hole, tour-standard, golf courses within 30 minutes of the Lanterns Villa, you can play every day for a week and not play the same hole twice !
Golf in Thailand is a unique experience - you can make your round as relaxed or serious as you like while friendly, experienced, caddies guide you around the course. Whether you walk or take a golf cart (it is up to you), there are regular drink and snack 'rest stops' along the way.
