If you are looking for bright lights and noisy bars aimed at tourists then a stay at the Mangrove isn't for you. If what you're after is peace, tranquility and a taste of real Island life then the Mangrove is the perfect holiday destination. Olivier, Jean Luc and their wonderful staff have achieved perfection. The location, food, service, cleanliness and... More

If you are looking for a different kind of accommodation, where peace and relax reigns, let The Mangrove be your choice . They are perfectly integrated into village life and are able to couple the Thai hospitality and smile, with the European comfort standard. Both room and bathroom are very clean, with everything you need. Upstair there is a loft... More

We came to Mangrove based on the Tripadvisor's comments and weren't disappointed! The service is more then excellent as each guest is treated as a family member not just like a guest. The restaurant is really good. We had a dinner at Mangrove every evening - which never happens to us - to dinner at the same place during 4... More

This is a great place to enjoy a bit of luxury in the middle of an authentic thai fishing village away from mass tourism. We experienced exceptional hospitality from the owners and staff at this beautiful eco friendly retreat. Our stay was peaceful and restful, but also fun and adventurous, with kayaking, snorkling, jungle walks and fishing, thai massage, a... More

Everything at the Mangrove is so nice, personal, tasty, ambient to an extend that goes beyond our expectations. At The Mangrove my wife and I found true hospitality, the most kind staff you can imagine, timed and relevant services (our luggage was delayed and immediately two toothbrushes were provided, etc.) and what perhaps was most important: all services and attentions...

Had initially 3 nights booked at this great Hotel, but were lucky to be able to extend another 2 nights due to a cancellation. This is a really cosy, friendly, nice hotel, far away from the big hotels on the other side of the Island. We had two rooms, one room towards the road, and one room towards the restaurant/river....
