“Honeymoon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Beautiful resort only opened 4 months ago. The ocean view room, was not an ocean view, it is a bay with mangrove trees & mud for the beach, lots of sand flies and mosquitos. They don't speak enough english to under stand what you want... They dont make cocktails & we had a priblem with there two eftpos machines at check out. Very very far away from everything and no taxi drivers know where the resort is. We wont be staying again. Sorry

I and my boyfriend stayed there for 2 nights before we took off to Phi Phi and it was a wonderful experience. We looked for somewhere quite and beautiful and we got exactly what we want. The hotel service was very warm and welcoming. The hotel was also new, which I liked. The lemon grass scented shampoo and shower gel provided in the room was also lovely. A wonderful experience and will recommended to everyone!!

The entire experience can be call "perfect", the Mangrove Panwa resort is the best place in Phuket to hide and get away. Its location delivers a feeling of tranquility, which is enchanted by abundant of mangrove, and stunning beachfront of Andaman Sea.

The room was perfectly clean with all appliances we needed....

The staff is very nice and attentive, and ensure you the best they can deliver...

The sunset with a touch of mountain and andaman sea was also a highlight..

We think that we paid less than what we got here..

all in all - go to Mangrove Panwa.. highly recommend for people like us -

The Mangrove Panwa Resort provides me a real relaxation. It is right by the beach where you can enjoy the seaview at horizon. The sunset scene is absolutely picturesque. Small units made me feel very private enauring peaceful hideaway experience. I love the modern-minimalist architecture and interior which makes you feel close to the nature.

The rate is really value of money. I highly recommend this new boutique resort to anyone.

First of all, We've traveled to Phuket many times. But we never stayed in Panwa area.
So this time we decided to try something new. So here goes the Mangrove!!
At arrival, despite the fact that we were very tired from our long flight, we were very excited to explore this charming little resort.

The resort set up is nice like a little village and not over crowded. We had all the beach and pool for ourself on our first day ;-)
We stayed in a "Deluxe sea view". The room was very stylish, clean, and modern.
Also it fit two person comfortably, and most importantly fit our budget very well!!
Staffs were polite and professional. Overall experience about this place is very positive.
Also I think it's less than 20 mins to Phuket from here.

Some few downsides I'd like to mentioned though
- You don't get the white sandy type of beach here.
- You don't get the craziness like you stay in Phuket (if you are seeking that type of fun).

Other than that we really love the place.
I would recommend this place to friends!!
