Filled with dense rainforests, striking beaches, mountainous landscapes and island-hopping adventures, Phuket certainly shines as one of the must-sees in Thailand. Among its array of top-notch resorts, Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa makes quite an impression.

Here, you'll find indulgent boutique bliss in the form of 41 serene villas, authentic Thai food, an Ayurvedic spa and a large free-form swimming pool – perfect for delightfully lazy afternoons. If you're looking to relax and unwind, treat yourself to a healing Thai massage, before kicking back in your villa's very own private terrace with hammock. And when you’re ready for something a bit more upbeat, you won’t need to stray far from the resort, either – diving, cooking classes and Batik lessons can all be organized through the resort.
