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.

I can recommend the Resort highly. You felt right at home there. All wishes were catered to immediately. The Resort is located in a beautiful green surrounding. The guest stay at individual small villas, it is very quiet. The food is fantastic. The staff extremely friendly and helpful. The Resort is overall very tidy and clean. The pool is great and so are the YOGA and Wellnes Programs I joined. I will definately come back soon.
Mangosteen never disappoints. The staff are all friendly. The gardens, buildings and grounds are all well maintained. The villas are spacious, clean and have a lovely ambience. Even though the restaurant is not cheap the food is always fresh and tasty. The theme night buffets are really nice and well presented. The Spa is an absolute highlight, the treatment rooms have amazing views and the staff are all qualified and make you feel pampered and relaxed. There is Yoga in the garden Sala, which is absolutely stunning. The free shuttle bus to Nai Harn beach is also great. The surrounding areas provide some handy cafes and the Rawai fish market is a quick taxi ride down the road. We have just enjoyed a week here, it is our third visit in 5 years and look forward to be greeted with their smiling faces when we return again one day.
