I arrived at the Outrigger Hotel in Laguna Beach, Phuket, broken. I hadn't planned it that way, of course. I was supposed to arrive intact, smiling like I had a glorious secret to tell, and gliding on my dancers' feet as if I was walking on air. That's how it worked in my head during all those months as I waited for my holiday to begin. The Universe had other plans though, and these plans included a broken knee and the most unladylike hopping I have ever had the misfortune of witnessing in a mirror. So that is how I arrived: hopping on one leg, because if my left big toe so much as touched the ground, pain enough to make me vomit would shoot through my knee.

And yet? And yet it somehow still worked out.

As soon as the staff of the outrigger witnessed me use the shuttle entryway poles as crutches to help me down on the ground, three rather dashing young men leapt to my assistance. I had one under each shoulder within seconds, and a third dashed off to grab me a wheelchair.

And you know what? For the five days that I stayed in that hotel, they would not hear of me giving that wheelchair back. I took it with me to shows, on excursions, to the pool. And this was no dinky wheelchair, let me tell you. It was quite the Ferrari as far as my limited knowledge of wheelchairs is concerned. Without a moment's hesitation the staff at The Outrigger solved my single biggest vacation problem: how was I going to manage with a broken knee an no crutches. And they did it as if it was nothing. For that I cannot overstate my gratitude.

I should possibly make it clear that The Outrigger is not the kind of hotel that I can afford in real life. Someone else was footing the bill this time, so I was incredibly lucky to be there. Maybe this kind of fancy place is normal for most folks, but for me, it was super special.

My favourite bits?

* Tea & Coffee in the rooms (not a normal hotel feature in Thailand)
* A bath (not a normal feature in Thailand)
*The most comfortable bed!
*A Duvet (I know that seems weird in such a hot place but I struggle to sleep without something weighty on me. Just a sheet with a thin blanket it not enough for me even though that's all you need in Thailand!)
*Incredible swimming pool area
*Right on the beach (I couldn't make use of that - hopping on beaches is not fun! - but it was still lovely to have it right there)
* Beautiful dining room with nightly entertainment
* Weird juice that I can't name but is the best stuff I've ever tasted
* Weird breakfast pastries that also had no names but were incredible
* Really GOOD coffee served with breakfast (good coffee can be hard to come by in Thailand)

I had a fantastic time in this hotel. The friendly staff were incredible and I especially loved that even though this was a fancy place, far out of my league, I was never treated as if I was in a place that was out of my league.

My favourite part was that there was a baby elephant that visited on a daily basis, but I think that elephant wasn't a usual hotel feature and it was there because of the company that sent us there. She was gorgeous though. And so friendly.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment here and loved it. Beautifully and thoughtfully finished space, the pool and kids club were amazing and food fantastic. Taxi's to a beach area or shopping were quite expensive (but all taxi's in Phuket are expensive). Apart from that we *loved* it.
