“Relaxing stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Good and relaxing accommodation,and very helpful and friendly staff;
location too far from everything and transport rent is needed (shuttle service is only one way); also because the beach is not very usable and the tide often retreats the sea.
Spa and itness centers under construction

This hotel is a great choice if you want to relax in Phuket and escape from the noisy and busy areas, close to the city and port. It is surrounded by a great garden, excellent swiming pool by the sea.
The service was great, food and cleanliness to a very high standard.

Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: If you come for a romantic weekend, choose a pavillion, more privacy and plenty of space. Private te...

We had a great stay here. The villas were roomy, new and modern. There was a few insects, but I don't think you can do much about that considering the location is right on the water. I do wish that the outside bath on our balcony was kept a bit better though, it was a bit dirty so we didn't use it.
The staff were extremely friendly and nice.
The restaurant food was delicious and well priced. We ate there a lot.
The pool was beautiful, had a nice view also. We had many cocktails next to the pool.
We would definitely recommend this place to stay.

Great resort - lovely accommodation and setting and very helpful and friendly staff. However is too remote if you do not have transport. Stayed for seven nights with family and friends. Were six of us and while the restaurant was quite OK part of any holiday is trying the local food and we could not walk to any restaurants. Always had to arrange taxis to and from resort. Not far from Panwa village itself where there are a number of good restaurants. It would be good if resort could arrange shuttle in and out to cater for dinner time. Note other resorts have shuttles. Resort does have a oneway shuttle to Phuket town but only during the day and you have to negotiate taxi back.

Overall: A+
Food: B+

Cost: A+


I chose to book my partner and I, the Deluxe Pavilion, at the Mangrove Phuket Resort in Cape Panwa due to its location—away from the crazy Patong crowd, but close enough to the water. We stayed for a little over a week, and the general consensus was that it was a great steal (we paid $432 from 3 August to 10 August – seven nights/eight days with a late check out at 2pm) - every detail was given adequate attention. The concierge staff was extremely attentive and friendly, and we had an amazing time with their included daily breakfasts (the selection of foods included warm and continental items, but the friendly staff also were ready to prepare any sort of made-to-order egg selections, and bacon).

As we were too lazy to eat out everyday, we also had a few dinners on site, and found that their kitchen was very well staffed (opened until 23:00)– generally, speaking, the prices of most of the dishes were around 100 Baht more than outside prices, but it was worth it, since we did not want to deal with getting a taxi/scooter to just get a meal elsewhere (average Thai Green Curry was 220 Baht). Their daily buy-1-get-1 free drinks between 18:00 to 19:00 were also very tasty (each alcoholic drink was 190 Baht). The room service was the same menu and price as the meals at the Mangmoon restaurant, which was the restaurant that cooks your meals during breakfast.

My partner thoroughly enjoyed the infinity pool, while the beachside hanging double bed cabanas were also a relaxing treat, after a long day of diving. We also had the chance to play with their life-sized chess set on the garden, and found that if one wanted to, they could have also borrowed one of the resort’s yellow canoes on the mangrove beach, which was just steps away.

During our time at the Resort, we also rented the scooter, which was approximately 350 Baht for an entire 24hour period, which meant that we could have rented it anytime during the day, and it would have been valid for the same time the following day. Renting the scooter allowed us to also explore the rest of the Island of Phuket. Although I would suggest riding the streets of Phuket for only the brave (I personally have been licensed to ride a motorcycle since I was 15 years old), the leisurely ride between the resort and Patong Beach was around 35-45minutes. The ride was scenic, and along the way, we stopped at several viewpoints including Nai Horn Beach / Kata Noi / Kata Beach / Karon Beach, for those who would also like to stop by the Rubber Tapping tourist locations and the Phuket Safari, these places are also between the beach/mountain road from the resort and Patong Beach.

We also organized the transfer between the resort and the airport with the concierge directly, and paid around 1000 Baht to the airport (1200 Baht for late night arrivals/departures). There were also daily free transfers between 10:00 / 13:00 / 16:00 departing from the resort to (only towards, one would have to find their own way back): Central Festival Village and Ao-Yon Beach. My partner and I had spent a wonderful afternoon on the local Ao-Yon beach, near Cape Panwa, away from the crowds, the restaurant at the beach also served fresh coconuts and very delicious thai curries, etc.

We also spent four days diving, where I finished my Master Scuba Diver Certification, and had the dive shop pick us up at the Resort, along the way to Chalong Beach, which is also in close proximity to the Mangrove, this could be convenient for those who love to dive. We personally booked with Kon-tiki dive school, due to their 5 Star Gold Rating from PADI, but I assure you, that there are many other schools out there once you arrive.

Overall, we enjoyed the peaceful time at the Mangrove, and would suggest anyone going to Phuket, especially the ones who would like to get away from the crowds to stay there.

Room Tip: Ask for the Deluxe Pavilion or the Deluxe Pavilion with the exterior tub, however, be reminded that...
