+ Very nice quiet place just for few guests and amazing nature around (mangrove/river, "jungle" garden). We stayed 2 nights in nice, clean and big white bungalow with amazing view of the river and garden. You can watch and hear animals all the time - many kinds of birds, fruit bats, mongooses, varans... - Little bit far away from the... More

It was really hard to find assistance from the staff. Even finding water was really inconvenient. They offer water at a price of Rs.100 per bottle and the most disgusting experience was that we had a hard time getting a person into contact so as to ask for that bottle of water even. Then I called the person whose contact... More

Clean, confortable and spacious rooms. The staff are really friendly, helpful and professional and the young man who served us breakfast was always smiling and very professional too. We went on a river safari where we saw water monitors, crocodiles, chameleons, kingfishers and snakes with a really good guide. I definately recommend mangrove villa!

We turned up to find that they had booked our room out to someone else even though we had already paid through agoda! What kind of a company does that, very unprofessional and not trust worthy. On arrival the manager was very rude to us and not apologetic at all about what they had done, we also received glares from... More

Mangrove Villa is a unique getaway from most other places. With only 6-7 rooms, it is private and far away from touristy traps. Situated on the side of the river and home to King Fishers and lazy Water Monitors, I could relax and refresh myself. My favourite place was sitting by the river and watch the river go by..... The...

I booked two rooms for my family with each room accommodating 2 people. But when I reached the guy who was managing the property asked me to pay extra since the rate I paid was for 1 person but no where it was mentioned during the booking. I argued that 2 person in a room is a norm but he... More

We stayed at Mangrove for about a week. We were amazed by the beautiful views that we were greeted by- the grounds are lovely and back onto the river. Having read the previous reviews we were expecting much more... the staff were laissez-faire to say the least, only really acknowledging our existence a couple of days before we left, however...
