“Can't wait to come back”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I have to agree with the previous review, we also had a voucher and had read earlier reviews with concern. However we couldnt fault any part of our stay at the resort. Everyone was friendly and extremely helpful and if we didnt have a child with chronic lung disease we would have signed up with Mangosteen. The resort was clean with beautiful views out to sea one week is not enough!

So we read the reviews before arriving and yes we also had a grab one voucher but I really dont understand what other people have complained about. We enjoyed our stay very much, the staff were very friendly, we totally loved the pool and gardens. At first when the taxi dropped us off we thought we would be stuck at the resort but is was so easy to hire a scooter that getting out and about was easy and there are shops 5 min walk away from resort. The food was great and staff really did well making things gluten free. As far as the sales meeting went, we found it very surprising and very tempting but at the end of the day not for us but could see the value in it for people wanting to do lots of travel. Big thank you to everyone who made this a wonderful holiday.

We recently stayed at this resort on a scoopon voucher as did friends of ours. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome at this resort. All the staff are friendly and courteous and knowledgeable about the resort and surrounding areas. The accommodation is wonderful, your own private piece of heaven. The villas are private and quiet so you feel like you're away from everything but you are just a short walk to the reception area, restaurant, pool, spa and gym. The pool is magnificent and the water quality in the pool is amazing. Fun times can be had by the pool during happy hour, which goes from 3 to 6.30. We have stayed at a lot of resorts over the years and this rates up there as one of the best. We booked a day trip through the resort to do white water rafting, elephant trekking and an all terrain vehicle adventure. It was a great day and would highly recommend it. We also did the Thai cooking class at the resort and it was a great experience and well worth it. We also dined at the restaurant a few times and the food was divine and the staff attentive. Would like to give special thanks to Edz who works in reception and Mon from the Pool Bar, you both certainly looked after us. Overall we had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: We were in room 103 and would probably request this room on a return holiday.

This hotel was perfect for us. Smaller than the big brand hotels with a high level of service and value for money. Lovely views over looking Rawai Bay and the local islands. Prices in the restaurant were fair as was the room rate and rooms well well decked out for the price. Local restaurants only a 5 minute drive(Naiharn area)with a good selection of beaches within 10 minutes drive. Would book another holiday in Phuket and stay here again.

Room Tip: Take a room on the East facing side for the best panaramic views

We needed a relaxing holiday and the mangosteen provided.

The rooms are beautiful and large. The beds are comfortable and big. The pool is the best I've ever seen.

We booked our stay with a our offer coupon and our stay was really cheap for a very good quality resort. There is some marketing involved with the offer but it isn't over the top. It's just informative without pressure.

Thanks for having us and will recommend you to our friends.

After a long trip from New Zealand, my wife Natalya and I were happy to reach the resort. Our first impressions were very good, nice meet & greet cocktail at reception, well presented staff, beautiful surroundings and of course the spectacular swimming pool.
The room was spacious, well appointed and with the unique outside shower, truly made for a comfortable yet special stay.
Rooms are a base of course and we were happy with the view from the windows of the sea and beyond whilst staying in excellent comfort.
The restaurant delivered up a very nice buffet selection for breakfast, with a Western / Thai mix daily, there was plenty there to satisfy all tastes.We waited to test the buffet before buying the special for the duration of our stay of seven days, The Mangosteen gratefully obliged and backdated our special to include the breakfast we had already eaten not at the special price. Nice!
There were several themes during our stay for meals and both Natalya and I enjoyed the 5 Gems of Asia, we also loved the attention given when dining at the candle lit dinner. Same same..Nice!
Another of the many features at the resort is the Ayurveda spa, my wife and I enjoyed the relaxing massage followed up by a swim in the pool.
Happy hours are a great way to meet other guests at the resort and to make new friends. With the owners of the resort often in attendance along with other staff members, not only the drinks flow freely, but so does the conversation making for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Many were the times where other guests and ourselves stood at the pool bar chatting away about all happenings in the world and many friendships were made at these times. In fact, it is a fabulous way to break the ice with other guests, so long may it stay.
The Mangosteen offers up many events like elephant trekking, a visit to a monkey show though the highlight of our trip was the boat excursion booked through the resort to Phi Phi island. Awesome!! This is a must do and booking through the resort simplifies the process from the taxi pick up to the drop off after.
Other highlights include the weekend markets where bargains abound so is also a must do and last but by no means least are the wonderful sand filled beaches in the area, our favourite was Ngai Harn, a wonderful warm white sandy beach settled in the heart of paradise.....true bliss.
This was our first trip to Phuket and now, thanks to The Mangosteen, we will be returning back there often.
As far as recommendations go, we highly recommend The Mangosteen as a fresh, relaxing and friendly resort to stay at, all that's left to do is go and book and enjoy!

We recently stayed at the Mangosteen after a visit to HK. Perfect place to unwind and recover from stress. Excellent spa, friendly staff and beautiful location. Resort's free shuttle service to beach and marketplace appreciated and taken advantage of by guests.

Impressed that Owner/management undertake ongoing upgrades and maintenance.

We would recommend it.
