Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort, Outrigger on the Lagoon -- Fiji, and Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk hailed among the best family resorts in their destination by the readers of Holidays with Kids.

Travelers have spoken and Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is proud to announce that three of its properties have earned a spot in Holidays with Kids' 2013 Top 10 Resort Awards.

"This award delivers further inspiration for us to continue providing families from around the globe with outstanding service, top-notch accommodations, and lasting memories."

Earning the number one spot as Thailand's "Best Family Resort," the all-new Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort offers an exquisite Phuket hotel experience on beautiful Bangtao Bay.

Holidays with Kids says the property offers great amenities for mom and dad to enjoy "while the kids are entertained with special programs at Koh Kids.
