I recently visited the Mandarava resort for a work conference with my team of 45 people. From the very first point of contact to the final farewell the experience was amazing. The staff were super helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The conference facilities were great. The accommodation was really good and the food was great. My team had a wonderful experience - a mix of work and play and the group feedback was a resounding - EXCELLENT!! Thank you to all at the resort - we hope to be back!

Spent 6 nights here during what is low season in Thailand. Benefits: it’s quiet and you almost get the place to yourself. Weather was still hot and sunny, couple of rainy times but they clear up and it’s a whole lot cheaper to fly here now than in high season. Disadvantages: the sea is somewhat choppy and if you were planning on doing island day trips then you’re braver than me. But all in all I would recommend going during the low season. They also desperately need tourists back after covid and I would highly recommend the Mandarava if you were considering a trip to Phuket. All of the staff are just the most friendliest of people, will always greet you with a smile or a wave and genuinely seem to want to engage. (Mark from the restaurant is one who really made an effort to get to know us). We also had a couple of chats with Alex the residence manager who clearly loves his job and working alongside his staff. He spoke a lot about how the hotel is trying to come back from being locked down for so long and is desperate to see people enjoying themselves. You can see it’s more than just a job to them. He calls his staff family. So nice. The hotel itself is lovely, set in a hillside (some of the hills are steep and lots of steps to contend with but they have tuk tuks to drive you around should you need them). It has a rainforest feel to it and it’s fairly secluded so no traffic to disturb you. Lovely pools, pool bars, plenty of sun loungers. The rooms are comfortable although the air con is pretty noisy so take some ear plugs unless you can sleep in a hot room. The only downside is I would say that I felt there was limited places to spend the evening. The restaurant has a bar which is open till 11pm but there was no real area to relax and enjoy evening drinks other than in the restaurant. They have a large area outside the restaurant which would have made a lovely area to turn into an outside lounge. I think we may have spent more time at the hotel in the evening if this was the case but we went into town (sweet chilli bar) most nights. Karon beach and town is a ~10-15min walk or tuk tuks available from the hotel. You’ll walk past the Sweet Chilli bar and restaurant as you reach the main road, I highly recommend the food and the company here… you’ll find the owner Nong is very chatty and friendly. Karon beach has sunloungers for 100b for the day. Highly recommend.

My partner and I stayed for 10 nights at the Mandarava Resort & Spa in May 2022 and honestly it was incredible! We had the Seafan room which was a great size and just beautiful. The place is so clean & stunning and the staff couldn’t do more for you. Food in the restaurant is amazing and you have so many options. Photos really don’t do it justice! It was less than 10 minutes walk down to Karon beach which is like a photo from a magazine it’s so perfect. It was a little rainy towards the end of our stay so would advise going before May so miss the monsoon season. We will 100% be back ♥️

We had the most amazing experience at the Mandarava, the place is stunning and location is perfect feels like your staying in a tropical rainforest. The staff are really friendly and helpful, rooms are kept to a high standard. The buffet breakfast was excellent and lots to choose from and the meals in the restaurant were top class. The swimming pools are of good size with swim up bars and great cocktails. Highly recommend this stunning place 😊

This is my third visit to Mandarava and have been going since 2014. This is still the best resort in Phuket. I can’t tell if there’s any specific person to thank for my wonderful stay, everyone here is so warm and attentive. I stayed in the standard room and it’s spacious, bed is very comfortable and everything works well. Side note: pack comfortable shoes for the stairs, shorts & hats for the warm weather and sunblock for the gorgeous pools. Don’t worry on the duty free grog, they have half price cocktails by the pool at 4-6pm. Cons : wifi signal is good but once you stop using it you’ll need to sign in again which is quite annoying. Don’t forget your password.

We stayed here at the end of March , our first time in Thailand. It was quite possibly one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in. The rooms were beautiful with everything you could want on hand. The bathroom was spacious with a lovely free standing bath and complimentary toiletries that were re supplied throughout our stay. The out side areas and pool areas were beautiful and tended every day. We had breakfast with our booking which was fabulous, anything you could think of, the serving staff were so friendly and helpful. We only ate in the restaurant a few times but the meals we had were really first class and beautifully presented. It was a bit of a steep walk from the hotel to the stunning Karon bay but we got used to it coming back was the hard part. All in all I would recommend staying at this lovely Hotel you will not be disappointed.
