At first we thought we were going to some dim and dark place due to the condition of the road however on arrival to our surprise, Mangosteen is exactly like the web site. The pool bar service was fantastic, Kai and Sukar were friendly and shared information about great locations to go. The front desk staff were very helpful with... More

Stayed at this resort for 4D3N with a friend last week. The resort itself is so beautiful and nicely decorated. We upgraded our room and we had a private jacuzzi in our villa with a nice view. It was very peaceful and a wonderful stay. I really enjoy being in room. Feel so relaxed and comfortable. The public pool was... More

The resort itself is lovely, beautiful ground, very well appointed semi detached Thai style studio villa with great attention to detail - big comfortable bed, little private patio with a hammock, nice lounge sofa although the cushions keep falling off the ends. The room has a relaxed atmosphere which is very welcoming. The saltwater pool is really nice with lush... More

Despite this actually being quite a positive review, I'm shocked about the rediculous insult towards our restaurant. I guess you have never really eaten anything else than the cheapest available dish on the menu, our superb Pad Thai noodles. This is a very popular speciality in Thailand and it is our best seller (average 15 to 20 portions a day).... More

A great hotel, with a great wrap around pool where you can relax and enjoy a drink at the swim up bar. The rooms are nicely spaced out so that you can enjoy a peaceful stay and read a book in the hammock. Great views out to the ocean and a lovely restaurant. The staff are very helpful and provide...

Before booking our trip on Groupon we read the reviews on TripAdvisor and were skeptical about the deal. Deciding to chance it we upgraded to a superior Jacuzzi Villa and after spending a week at Mangosteen we could not have asked for more. Yes the road is not the best but no worse than a country road in New Zealand.... More

If you are thinking of going, think no more - just do it! If you are a party animal you may want to look somewhere else, this oasis is where you go to recharge well worn batteries in absolute oppulent beauty and comfort. The resort is a visual delight, from the manecured lawns to the diverse array of butterflies that... More

We've just returned from a seven night stay here on our first visit to Thailand, after a few nights in Bangkok. The place is a bit off the beaten track, and at first glance, the road leading up to the resort entrance made us wonder what we we were getting into, as it in very poor repair, and does not... More

Thank you so much for your good review! It seems you did enjoy staying at the Mangosteen and had a good holiday n Phuket. Your headline suggests limitations, however in your review it isn't clear what these are. Now, we had over 600 reviews on TripAdvisor. Obviously everything has been said and already replied to as well. New aspects are... More

This is in reality a members only club resort that is tucked away in a little area of Rawai about 30 minutes outside of Patong. The welcome by the reception staff was officious although I'm sure that is not the intention. The Thais must complete registration in a process that is rigid. Nevertheless we were shown our room that was... More

Thanks for the generally good review. The main thing is that you enjoyed your holiday which we believe you did. Nowadays many people carry several devices which need to be charged indeed. However it is also a time in which we all have a responsibility to reduce our energy footprint and conserving water and electricity are very important goals. It... More

Thanks for taking the time to write the review, which we consider very positive. It is true that our entrance road is not great, however it is not ours. It's a public road and therefore it is what it is. The resort is a hillside resort, the hill is not steep however and also not very high. For guest with... More
