Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa
What We Love
- A boutique resort in Phuket, with breakfast, a dinner, a massage and perks for longer staysTaking a leisurely dip in the 24-hour outdoor pool, before taking a cooking or Batik class
- Enjoying a romantic candle-lit dinner, included in your stay
- Lounging in the hammock on your private terrace
What To Know
- The resort is a ways from the airport and central Phuket, but they do provide a free shuttle into town and to and from nearby beaches
- This is more of a romantic couples getaway than a family affair – the resort is adult only
- The large pool is salt water and has a swim-up bar
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. This four-star, family-run spot in southern Phuket is spread across 6 acres of tropical gardens and will put you just a short drive from Phuket’s vibrant old town, Patong Beach and Phromthep Cape.
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.
Superior Garden villas are full of elegance and traditional charm, with locally made wooden furnishings and warm, earthy tones setting an inviting and homey mood. You’ll have 625 square feet to enjoy, as well as plenty of amenities – including a private terrace with a coffee table and a hammock, a large double bed (or two twins), Wi-Fi access, an outdoor bathroom and dimmable lights.

In addition to providing fabulous show cooking and a refreshing open-air setting, the resort’s restaurant serves up traditional fare with flair. Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet, sour, spicy or healthy, you’ll find plenty of Thai dishes and Mediterranean delights to suit your mood – don’t miss the tom khai gai soup, grilled tiger prawns and khao phad suppa rod – a dish of fruity, fried Jasmin rice served in a fresh pineapple. The hotel’s wine cellar is also quite impressive, offering everything from Tuscan to Chilean labels.
Making the most of Ayurvedic techniques, the resort’s spa offers treatments to soothe your body and mind. From traditional Thai massages to Indian head massages, you’ll find all manner of pampering options on the spa menu here.
Set in southern Phuket, Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa offers plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind yet is also ideally placed for when you want to explore the surrounding area. The Big Bhudda statue, Karon View Point, Phuket Orchid Farm and scenic sea views from Phromthep Cape are all no more than a half-hour drive away, while the Phuket Mining Museum and Sirinat National Park are just a bit further out.

We arrived at Mangosteen for a relaxing holiday.
The resort has fantastic views from all over the resort, the staff were very helpful and happy to help you at every request.
There is a mandatory marketing gig which you have to attend which is a part of Group On voucher price which is fine until the Asian lady(jeffrey or joffrey) in the office became really aggressive & pushy when you let them know that it is not for you, and after speaking to a number of other guests they had the same experience. Another negative aspect was the lady front office manager who seemed to be rude & least interested in helping out with anything.
Ivo was good & showed a more professional way to sell their product (time share).
Food & Activities package is slightly on an expensive side .
However Free Yoga class with Subash was the highlight in the morning of the resort. Extremely knowledgeable & polite.
