4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spacious cottage rooms with kitchenette and bathroom openly connected to the balcony, taking in tranquil garden views. It has a mangrove beach where you can observe tides rise high and recede low hour by hour. The bar and restaurant feature Chalong Bay Rum mojitos.

Hotel has a good location, not far from town. The room were large with the perfect lay out. There have a wide range of activities which I enjoyed a lot. Staff are friendly, helpful & approachable. However, there have high steps which might not convenient for old people.

We loved staying at the Mangrove Panwa - the room was lovely, the staff were friendly, and we got to walk around the village closeby and experience Phuket from a completely non-tourist side. I have been raving about their passion-fruit mojito which I will be having next time we go back. The beach is a little bit far from the hotel, but it makes up for it with a lovely small, but charming, swimming pool.

We liked the resort very very much. We have very well recovered. The breakfast was varied and the view from the restaurant was terrific. A wonderful birdwatching every morning. Jeden Tag frische Bettwäsche. Die Troppendusche war göttlich. Very clean rooms. Fresh towels every day. The tropical shower was divine. Very clean rooms. Very friendly staff.

Nice and quiet hotel with easy reach to Phuket town. Quite a distance from Patong beach though. As the name suggest, this hotel is on the mangrove area so there is no white sandy beach to be appreciated.

The hotel was in a quiet area and far away from party and bars. The room was very nice and the price was very reasonable. The breakfast choice was limited but it was not bad at all. The beach is there but it was not able to swim or walk since it was mostly rocks. Swimming pool is there but it was quite small. Overall I like the hotel bcoz I am looking for quiet place and I rented a car, without a car might be a little difficult to roam around. However the hotel got a shuttle bus to the city.

The Mangrove served as our launch point on our Thailand vacation. My partner and I had a studio and it was fantastic! The room was incredibly comfortable, the sheets were soft, we couldn't have asked for more. The staff was so helpful! They have scooters to rent for an incredibly affordable price. When my partner and a little mishap with the scooter, they were incredibly accomodating and helped us figure out alternative arrangements. They went out of their way to take care of us. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here!

The Garden area and the whole Hotel surrounding is very beautiful and well mantained. All other Facilities, but most of all the Restaurant suffer of chaos and a lack of management. Example Breakfast: if a dish is empty, its stays empty. If there are 10 plates on your table, they will stay on your table, as long as you do not leave. The staff is incridible friendly, but they don t know what to do, what their tasks are. Rooms: The Beds were done the first day, not the second. Towels were changed the first day, not the second...etc. Most of all: THERE IS NOOOOO BEACH!!! The advertisment is just wrong! Even if there is high tide, there is no beach, so don t think about beach holidays!

being in a hotel you will have that feeling like you are in a middle of the jungle, surrounded with lots of trees, palms and flowers. spacious rooms with beautiful view from balcony (speaking about 30X and 40X rooms which are closest to reception - uphill from pool area) very peaceful and refreshing stay. hotel staff is super friendly and helpful. now hotel shoreline is useless, it is not type of beach where you would like to swim. but it is great for canoeing which is provided by the hotel. pool area is great, though pool is shallow. prices in hotel restaurant are surprisingly affordable, and food quality for a la cart is great. hotel also provides various free shuttle services to surrounding beaches, and some chargeable shuttles for urban areas. overall, great refreshing and relaxing experience.

Welcoming. Natural. Relaxing. Peaceful. Clean. Comfortable... The Mangrove Panwa Phuket welcomed us once again so kindly with very friendly and courteous staff - our second visit and it still felt as enthusiastic as when it was newly opened 4 years ago. We felt like special guests to all the staff, all the time. Such a fantastic contrast to the hustle and bustle of the previous few days in Bangkok. Our room was a villa type at the front of the resort, very quiet and beautiful surroundings. Inside was perfect- spacious, clean and comfortable. Outside we had a lovely view of the gardens and only a stones throw to the beach. Really relaxing accommodation and grounds. The breakfast each morning included fruits, cereals, breads, salads and traditional Thai options, as well as an egg station (great) and hot & cold drinks. Perfect start to the day eating in the open restaurant area with lovely views out over the grounds and beach. Look out for the majestic eagles flying overhead. The bar served amazing selection of local rum cocktails (chalong bay) and local beers, not to mention pretty good fresh ground coffee. The restaurant served really good food in the evening, which we could have happily had every evening. We didn't need our own transport as we were able to use the complimentary shuttle service and local taxis. Loads to explore in and around the area. We were sad to leave this little piece of paradise. Can't recommend this place highly enough for Phuket town and Chalong Bay area. We said it before.. We will be back, and we did 😄
