For months leading up to our stay I read with interest and intrigue the reviews posted and more so the responses from management. Don't think I've ever seen so many differing reviews on a resort. Firstly, Mangosteen isn't a 5, 4.5 or even a 4 star resort. It certainly isn't phukets best boutique resort as they claim to be. It's... More

It's kind of sweet that everybody tries to rate the Mangosteen with stars, but fortunately star ratings are based on facts and not feelings or opinions. The resort has passed the official procedure of rating by the Thai authorities, 3 different organizations have been involved. The process is similar to an ISO certification, there are hundreds of pages of check... More

I have explained in another comment why the resort is rated 5 star in the Boutique Resort category and actually, this is just a fact, not a promotion. It is not subject to discussion at all and again, it is really funny some people think they know better, despite having no idea how resorts are actually rated. You are saying... More

Was on a Scoopon Deal therefore a cheap week away and so wasn't disappointed. The villa was clean, cool and inviting. The pool, breakfasts, staff all above average. Yes you listen to Cookie or one of the other English men speak about joining the Club but they don't push the subject and are friendly with it. Would definitely recommend the... More

Another Spam on TripAdvisor. Somebody who can hardly articulate himself, posts a totally meaning free hate speech, insulting people and hopes he can damage our business. Of course he can't. I will this time not reply to all the nonsense but only to the 2 star rating you gave the Mangosteen. A 2 star resort with 58 Sq.m. villas with... More

My husband and I just got back from an amazing trip to Thailand, where everything was amazing except this "5 star hotel". We were extremely exited about this trip but the service here is shocking and the details and rooms are the worse! We have stayed in 5 stars hotel previously and all I can say is that this hotel...

One of the problems with TripAdvisor is that people can post anything they want, based on facts or pure phantasy, the craziest nonsense ever seen and somehow the management has no choice but to spend valuable time to respond. Really a waste of time to answer to such spam. The Mangosteen is indeed rated a 5 star Boutique Resort. I... More

We stumbled in this place after buying a last minute 7day holiday from a friend recently and we were pleasantly surprised, really friendly staff, food was good and the rooms very comfortable. Secluded from the hustle and bustle in Rawai but still close enough to the beach and great views from part of the resort. I would say it's more... More

Thanks a lot for your review. Very nice to know that you enjoyed your stay at the Mangosteen Resort. Yes, it is a couples resort and not ideal for families with children, this is part of our concept. Expensive is always relative and luckily, our spa cannot be compared with what is around the corner. Try it out, it is... More

We purchased a Grab One Voucher (as did pretty much everyone else at the resort at the time). We had an element of skepticism about being put into a "hard sell" position. We booked the room with no problems and declined the upgrades offered. First impressions when pulling in to an out of the way driveway that you almost needed... More

We recently spent a week at the Mangosteen and LOVED it! The chalet was simply beautiful - clean, fresh, surrounded by lush, well-maintained gardens and with a wonderful private outdoor bathroom and shower. Loved the extra touches like finding an aromatherapy candle lit for us each night on our return to the chalet. The pool area was awesome, the staff... More

I cannot say enough positive things about this wonderful resort! My husband and I received a week in a timeshare for a wedding gift and somehow stumbled upon this little gem.

We visited Mangosteen from 5th to the 12th of August 2014 travelling from cape Town and we really had a great time. The place is very beautiful though undergoing some renovations. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the Thai food as well as the 5 germs of Asia. The infinity pool is out of this world. The staff was... More
