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.

If you need a special place to just Relax Mangosteen is the Best it is Personal ,food is Special and the Staff Oh so Friendly they make your stay even Better and if you just want to sit by the pool or do the touristy thing it all happens right here
This is the second time we have stayed here. Just beautiful and so relaxing. Very friendly staff, Free shuttle that leaves 5 times a day to Nai Harn Beach and brings you back. great food.Beautiful rooms. No children.
We were there for our second time. The place is quite, clean, beautiful and the staff and owners very friendly and helpful.
This time the gym was a bit better than last year, and also a very delicious breakfast buffet included in the price. The owner was also building an ice thub by the pool while We were there. The shuttle bus to Nai Harn beach also goes more often - now 3 times a day. Still free Yoga every monday and theme evenings at the restaurant. Prices at the restaurant a bit expensive compared to local places, but also delicious quality food.
A perfect place for a couple to relax and enjoy each other!
It was an impromptu trip for my friend and I. We booked it 7 days before our trip, a 5D4N Wellness package at the resort.
Arrival was easy. We were greeted with a rosella cold drink and a equally cold refreshing towel on arrival. Check in was done with a smile and quickly. We arrived to our room with my bags already deposited. We had an arrival consultation with the Ayuvreda doctor for our wellness package. Everyday till check out we have an hour treatment included, along with an hour morning yoga session in the sala.
The resort provided a buffet breakfast with choice of eggs and thai special. There were a good choice of hot and cold dishes for a small scale resort. We also met the owner a few occasions and he was really friendly.
Our daily lunch and dinner are also included in the package. Though small in size, some vegan dishes (raw beansprouts salad) we were not used to, the rest were actually quite palatable.
There are a few in house activities available too like local market visit, to experiencing scuba diving etc. The pool is small but interestingly designed with little nooks and crannies to get away from other guests. There is also a buy one get one free happy hour at the pool bar.
Overall it was a great getaway for us girls. And a great value package provided. We had a great time and a good rest here. Hope to be back next time.
