After a long haul flight from the UK and all the hassles that come with it, baggage, tiredness and anticipation - we were delighted to arrive at this beautiful resort after only a 40 minute drive from phuket airport to a very warm and courteous reception.

The staff were immediately attending to our baggage and parking our hire car. Not in an obtrusive way but in a friendly and helpful way. Just what we needed, a fast check-in and shown straight to our room which was the luxury suite.

We had open access to the beach, native flowers, trees and bush all around our suite. Superb Thai restaurants and bars. And still only 10 drive into Phuket. We had the best of everything here.

We knew this place was a gamble when we booked it, as it was a brand new resort. We weren't sure if we were going to arrive to a typically sterile unlived purpose built complex.. We were so wrong thankfully... It was in fact superbly finished, all buildings were at one with the surrounding gardens, paths, trees and bushes, just like the villas were meant to be there. and all the amenities you'd expect and more.

This booking turned out to be perfect in every sense - beautiful traditional thai food, convenient location, friendly staff, luxury accommodation, no unruly kids or teenagers in sight. Just plenty of all the right things for a relaxing getaway.

We'll be spreading the word and would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to get a romantic break, an ideal sample of Thai luxury and great value for money.

I stayed at The Mangrove for the first time last week. I love Phuket and have been before, but wanted to find somewhere where I could get away from all the "touristy" side of things. It's not too far from Phuket town but far enough to get away from all the annoyance of people trying to sell you Tuk-Tuks, suits and massages. The facilities and staff were outstanding. I was able to totally relax in my very own brand new villa and enjoy the private beach which totally removed me from the stress of everyday life. Because this place is so new, it is still an undiscovered gem. Worth every Baht spent. I highly recommend staying here before everyone discovers this secret haven.

I have lived in Phuket island for 3 years. Last weekend I went to this resort for a weekend, feel like I went for holidays. First, the area is so quiet and nice, very different from Patong area. Second, the view from my room is amazing. I can see the big white Budda from my room and the swimming area. If you are lucky, as I was, I had a wonderful starry night, with the wave sound from the ocean. The last but at the least, the staff there are super nice.

We stayed 2 nights in a Suite villa. It is quietly located on the Cape Panwa, but the City Centre is easily accessible.

Our suite villa was spacious, comfortable, bright and well decorated with an excellent bathroom.

The Beach is not perfect but the food at both dinner and breakfast were excellent. The only negative was that, despite 2 requests to Reception and after waiting over 10 minutes, we gave up waiting for someone to collect our luggage on checking out. Otherwise, the Mangrove was truly excellent. We would definitely stay there again.

I've stayed at many amazing resorts all over Asia, The Mangrove Panwa Phuket Resort was simply the best! It's a new built resort in Phuket, among the nature. I got the special deal for the opening price. The views from our private villa were amazing and panwa beach was stunning. Watching the sun set by the infinity pool was spectacular. The villa was unbelievably luxurious along with the excellence decoration, perfectly for our honeymoon. I was appreciated with the service, even thought they were not yet in full operated now. Staffs was incredibly nice and made us feel like royalty from our first arrived. Its thai cuisine offered well prepared and delicious Thai food. To sum it up, the mangrove panwa really made our honeymoon an unforgettable experience and it was difficult to leave....truly Paradise!!

Room Tip: Sweet Villa is closer and provide the better access to the beach.
