We really enjoyed our week stay here. Fantastic resort, great rooms, amazing beach/garden view, incredible staff and a pool that I didn't want to leave. Rawai has a lot to offer, but it was hard to explore sometimes because everything we needed was at the hotel. We were even had a greeting breakfast with Richard. There were many great offers that we could take up Great value for money, and we look forward to coming back soon :) Thank you again xxx
The rooms are the biggest I have ever stayed in. The bathroom is a mansion. Very comfortable and you have access to everything you need (we even got fresh water every day). The staff are friendly. The pool is a treat. The spa is just what you need. The food is yummy and fresh (wishing for it right now). Only downsides I could pick up: location is further out than the "busy" Patong. But we liked that because it was quiet and safe. And all our tours picked us up from there for free, so we liked the location. And the wifi is a bit erratic, which we were ok with because we weren't on our phones a lot (wifi is good enough for you to WhatsApp and message, but maybe not have a long call). We liked the hotel so much we didn't leave unless we were going on tours or to the beach.
My wife and I have just returned from our first holiday in Thailand. We stayed for 2 weeks at this resort and I must say we were absolutely delighted with our choice of resort. We'd booked the resort last November via an exchange with Interval International. In the last few months my wife developed some mobility problems which made me look at the topography of the site a bit more closely. It's location on the side of a hill is fabulous for the views overlooking Chalong Bay, but if you're at the bottom of the site, there are a lot of steps to climb to get to the pool, restaurant or spa. We upgraded to a villa at the top of the site, and it was the best decision we could have made. Usually on our holidays we explore as much as we can. This time it was a lazy holiday by the pool, going to the local beach on the resort's free bus, and having some spa treatments. The food at the restaurant is excellent, a bit more expensive than the local eateries, but well worth it. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. We've never felt safer anywhere in the world. The owner is on site a lot, not in your face, but keen to make sure you are enjoying your holiday. We would certainly like to go back again some day. Richard & Gaynor Thomas Cardiff, Wales, UK
Me and my wife have just 7 amazing nights at this resort. The room was perfect cleanned daily evan had fresh pool towels every day. The staff were quite helpful at anytime needed.The place is very clean all round and the pool and surrounding area are amazing you will spend most of your time in this pool. There is alot of nice places to eat near by and a sort drive to the pier if you like fresh seafood which we recommend. It was great to catch up with both the owners. We will be back. Brian & Panida
My husband and I spent 8 nights at Mangosteen. The staff were excellent as was our hosts, the owners. The accomodation was nice if a little dark for my taste, although it could have been its location on the resort and the cloudy weather. Food at restaurant was delicious and breakfast had lots of variety for all nationalities. Would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a restful holiday.
We just returned after a week at Mangosteen. We received an offer from Groupon some months ago for a 7-night stay at Mangosteen for $199, which we snapped up immediately. So, yes, we got a bargain, especially after seeing the beautiful resort; however, this did not detract at all from the superior service we received. Aside from the beautiful surroundings, delicious food and pamperings on offer, I would say it was the people and service at Mangosteen that make this resort stand above the rest. On arrival, we received a friendly, warm welcome from Kristian who gave us lots of useful tips on how to make the most out of our week at Phuket. Jessie and Cat at reception were always smiling and willing to help, The hospitality staff were very amiable and attentive, and we were always greeted with enthusiasm by our favourite waitresses, Mom, Nam, Oile and Yu. And the Doctor and therapists at the Spa were serenity personified! We did a 3-course Thai cooking class one afternoon with chef, Rod, who is also the food and beverage manager. We were then able to enjoy the food we had cooked; the appetizer and entree as a late lunch, and the kitchen staff re-heated our main course for us at dinnertime. We learned a lot from Rod and enjoyed our casual chats with him during the week. Another positive feature of the resort was that the owners, Hajo and Rose, were often milling around, chatting to guests, and we had several interesting conversations with Hajo over a drink at dinnertime. It really does create a special ambiance when you stay at a place where the people around you make you feel so at home. This truly is a lovely resort! Lisa and Greg (Qld, Australia)
Beds had protruding base that you walked in to, staff where very accommodating and always smiling. We were under the impression that there was not to be any on selling of club membership.they did anyway
good relaxing resort. food excellent. nice pool with a good area to swim or walk. staff lovely. gardens well cared for. cocktails half price big bonus for 3 and half hours every day. shuttle to beach twice a day.
This is an amazing resort, close to everything but still away from the crowds tucked up in a lush green hillside overlooking the bay. Everything was clean, the villas were spacious and romantic and the bed I wanted to bring home with me it was so comfortable. All of the staff were extremely friendly and attentive.
The Mangodteen Resort is truely breath taking! The views of the bay from the bedroom of our room as well as the view from the restaurant is gorgeous! The swimming pool surrounds the restaurant with a moat that joins into the pool area and pool bar, which also has stunning views of the local bay and tropical surrounds! The staff are friendly and very helpful a real delight! Truely a five star resort! Thank you for making our stay one we will always cherish!
