    Good weekend stay
    We had a weekend stay at Mangala resort , together with 2 more families of friends. In total 6 adults and 7 teenagers/kids We stayed together at the Villa Bungalow which can comfortably accommodate everyone. With the convenience of having a big private pool we spent most of our time at the villa. Only going once at the restaurant. We had direct contact with concierge via whatsapp and we could order room service or asking for additional towels when needed. Reply (from Maujie) was pretty fast. Although with limited choice at the restaurant (due to COVID restrictions)the food was good. Congratulations to the chef. To improve : - Housekeeping: not enough towels and amenities (we had to ask) and no room cleaning service - Possibly more activities (e.g. golf chip & putting or mini driving range) Overall good stay and supportive staff, maybe a bit overwhelmed by full occupancy.

    The Beauty and Serenity of Nature
    Spent 3 unforgettable days at the lakeside Jala Villa here with my wife. The place was beautiful, and its upkeep was impeccable. The view from our room was breathtaking…our bed looked out directly to a serene lake—schools of fish in the water, chirping birds flying overhead. A perfect place to relax and unwind. To be close to nature. There were other villas along the lakeshore. But they were designed to offer reasonable privacy. We were lucky to check in a day after a busy long-weekend. Had the entire resort to ourselves (well, almost)! We got to pick the time for our meals without worrying if the restaurant would be busy. We took long walks around the resort’s beautiful grounds (stopping frequently for photos) without worrying about getting in the way of others. The staff members were, without exception, friendly and helpful…going out of their way to accommodate our requests. Teh tarik wasn’t on the menu (only Boh tea bags). So, Safirul from F&B volunteered to make us a cup. “Extra hot, please,” requested my wife. It was—and delicious too. Ira from Recreation volunteered to be our photographer. Took us on a buggy to some of the more interesting and less visited parts of the resort too. Meals were pricey, but of generous portions and appropriate quality. We paid for a room package that included breakfasts and dinners and it was good value for money. Gambang town is a 10-minute drive away, so we had our lunches in restaurants there. Simple local fares, convenient, nothing fancy. We chatted with a few staff members. Some were new. Others, like Safirul, had joined the resort since its inception, “…when these tall trees were mere bushes,” he pointed out. He was happy to give us useful information too—like food we should not miss while in Pahang (Lemang Periuk Kera), and the best place to buy durians (Batu Tiga on way to Kuantan). We had marked Mangala Resort as a one-time visit. Now we’re thinking of coming back again next year.

    Perfect for couple getaway
    I was staying for 2 nights during RMCO period in July and overall we were quite happy about it especially the services. We booked Amani Villa with pool and the room it was superb! Spacious and clean. The bathroom is as big as the room size, came with bathtub with view. The hotel is located in the middle of Palm field so you can totally feel the completely away from urban area and close to the nature. Do go for the recreation activities such as Kayaking and Cycling. The downside probably was the food options as you need to drive out quite a distance in order to find some restaurants. The resort is situated in Gambang where going to take 45mins to reach Kuantan so do plan for your itinerary if you want to visit somewhere else. I would also suggest grab some snacks/drinks etc from nearby convenient store like 7-11 prior the arrival as you need that if you are staying in a private pool villa. Please do note that there will be no SPA services throughout the RMCO period. Overall, it was great experience and I would recommended for it.

My partner and I had a wonderful time at Mangala Resort and Spa. The peaceful atmosphere was just what we needed to unwind and relax. We loved being surrounded by the beautiful natural surroundings, and our room was comfortable. Our package was with breakfast and dinner provided. Food is tasty, friendly restaurant staffs with good hospitality service. We also enjoyed taking part in nature walks. It was great to stay active and appreciate the natural beauty. Overall, we will recommend Mangala Resort and Spa to anyone seeking a rejuvenating getaway. We want to express our gratitude to the staff for their warm hospitality, and give a special shoutout to John, who went above and beyond to make our stay even more enjoyable.

This is a stylish, upmarket resort with comprehensive facilities . I was impressed by the service, I found the staff attentive and professional. When the kettle in our room did not work it was changed immediately, late on a Saturday night. Our villa was spacious and comfortable, with its own pool and a luxurious bathroom. For me, the highlight was the setting: the resort is set in very extensive, beautifully landscaped grounds with lakes and wild areas that shelter many kinds of birds. It also makes an excellent base for exploring the Kuantan area.

Very nice villa. Swimming pool inside the unit. Nice food. However, bathroom & toilet room has no lock. No privacy. Very expensive. Not worth the experience. Very dark & spooky at night. Will not go there again.

AMAZING RESORT Been here many times and the recent was in January 2023 (during the CNY) for a short vacation. One of the nicest resort hotel in Kuantan with spacious vila, amazing view, nice landscape, tidy, clean and equipped with all types of amenities. The check in was smooth and fast. Everything was done in seconds and thereafter we were brought to our villa with a buggy. Everything here is beautiful, the breakfast is good as well as dinner (but only lack of selection and the price is a bit on the high side)... the service was superb and all staff at the Lakeside restaurant especially En Safirul and his team members....Mcd, Kharya and the rest (to name a few) makes sure that we are well taken care of and addresses us by name. Not to mention their F&B Manager Mr John who was so kind enough to take time to talk and explain to us the new cocktails that will be introduce in the near future. Truly live up to the hotel and image. Kudos to them. I have never experienced such warm and attentive service like this. Once again a huge thank you to all the staff of the hotel for making this trip such a memorable one.

Didn't have any high expectations for MRS as we are beach people but I am so glad we gave it a try!  The good stuff: 1. The Villa is perfect! Layout & furniture are practical. Super clean - shiny, new, and spotless! Most resorts usually overlooked the balcony but it is not the case with MRS - it is very clean and we are so comfortable hanging out at the balcony. Fish feeding at the balcony is a major plus point for Jala Villa - Kids totally loved it! 2. The people - oh so friendly and accomodating. Every time I step foot in the lobby there will be someone asking if we need a buggy. We are very happy with the hospitality from checking in to recreational staff and the masseuse.  3. The activities - I was not expecting much as there is no beach, hence only booked for 2 nights, but I was wrong! There are so many things to do and everything is properly arranged. 4. Food - everything we had was great, kudos to the chef! From breakfast to lunch to room service, and the pastries too.  The can-be-improved stuff: 1. Welcome drinks - A very basic gesture that the resort should have, furthermore being part of the Small Luxury Hotels of The World (SLH). However we do appreciate the candies and mineral water at the lobby!  2. Breakfast - we were there during low occupancy so was only offered set breakfasts. However the portion is small esp the Malaysian Set. Considering I only get this one plate with no refill, at least make it full. Choice of drink was only Black Coffee/Tea - should have offered brewed coffee instead i.e Latte/Cappuccino, and Teh Tarik as malaysian favourites. There is also no option to order alacarte from the restaurant although stated as "All Day Dining 7am - 11pm". 3. Email communication - Prior to my visit I have emailed the reservation team to combine my reservation (as I have made 2 separate bookings) and also mentioned that this is our anniversary trip but I guess nobody reads the email. Tried to email my stay feedback too, and no response too. Summary: We had a really good time at MRS and hope to come again in the future. Worth spending and I will definitely recommend this place especially if you are travelling with kids/teens.

What an amazing stay at Mangala Resort and Spa. If you love nature, contemporary design, your own Villa with a plunge pool this is the place for you. It’s the perfect place to kick back and relax and enjoy nature at the most eco focused hotel I have ever seen. You don’t even need to leave the property as there is swimming, hiking, kayaking, archery and bike riding at your disposal. And the Lakeside Restaurant is fabulous with local Malaysian cuisine or international choices galore. It’s one of my new favorite places to go. Check out the interesting story about how they transitioned barren land into a tropical jungle with a stunning hotel.

We stayed in the resort during school holiday in 1 of the Villa with a private pool. We love the Villa interior and the nature surroundings, beautiful flower plants and trees! Great view of the lake and so many outdoor activities that we could explore! Definitely a superb getaway life from the city! Our breakfast is buffet serve and the taste of the food is good. We were served by a girl wearing tudung ( didnt catch her name) which was very polite and friendly. The Manager Kamal was very attentive.. We saw him taking time going from table to table doing service and talking to all guests. We were quite impressed when he present his business card that he is actually the Manager of the Food and Beverage Department. We thought that he is only a waiter or senior staff in the restaurant. This resort deserve a high rated review due to the settings. Only fall back we think the signage in the entrance is not that prominent. Just a suggestion if the signage is visible we believe many more guest will know about the Resort. We will definitely come back to stay!

Stayed at their Amani Villa during the school holidays. The room was huge enough to accommodate our family, plenty of space in the room for an extra bed. The pool itself was clean and was the highlight of our stay. As for breakfast, it was efficient, the choices were enough in terms of selection and quantity. The surrounding area was peaceful l. They do provide bikes but the guests need to either bring your own helmet or buy at the resort store. Only one issue - the iron was a cheap, bad one. Not even any steam function. Burned a hole on my attire when I used it. Please consider investing in better ones.
