Mandarava resort&spa is the most beautiful resort which I’ve been. The room Have everything what do you need, bed was so comfortable, clean and amazing view from balcony. The pools area incredible, the most amazing pool was „coconut” with 2 comfy sofas. Breakfast was tasty and toooo much food from morning, the restaurants are 15 min walk from hotel with very tasty tay food. Just 1 thing Is gonna be the problem, the hotel have too much steps and after meal is not easy back to room 😂

Located just a short stroll to the beach, or very quick in house transfer, Mandarava is a fantastic place to stay. We have been back every year for the past 9 years, and absolutely love it here. Quiet, tropical gardens, excellent & attentive staff, amazing food at the restaurants and wonderful pools throughout the resort. The day spa is next level fantastic, obviously more expensive than the local massage places, but you are receiving 5 star treatments in a relaxed, quiet and private location....it's perfect. I can honestly say that my wife and I feel like we are coming home every time we stay, and sad every time we leave. Looking forward to coming home next year!

An absolute Dimond! This was by far the most memorable takeaway from our amazing holiday to Thailand. The hotel is situated in a fantastic location in Phuket, set within a beautiful hillside setting. The hotel facilities were fantastic including the staff who were always friendly, professional and happy to help. We had a small issue with our air conditioning and the maintenance team arrived within minutes to fix the issue. The food was fantastic, including plenty options at a fair price which could not be faulted. We stayed in the sea pearl private pool access and was 100% worth the additional costs, would defiantly recommend! Our only criticism would be there appeared to be gaps in the front door which allowed lizards to enter easily and we found ourselves collecting a couple up and placing them back outside. However I would recommend staying here and already discussing retuning next year, as this hotel really blew us away!

We stayed for 3n in April - family of 4. We had interconnecting family rooms - spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Our room was close to the Mango Pool. We also used most of the other pools - all of which are lovely for relaxing. They felt very much like adult pools - we didn’t see many other young children and felt the resort generally wasn’t designed for them. Service overall was very good - staff are warm and friendly. Breakfast was also good, with plenty of choice. Food in the main restaurant was good but we didn’t have a great experience with service - with my husbands meal coming more than 20mins after everyone else’s. We used the spa, which was excellent. Plenty of buff goes to move you around resort - we don’t actually find the hilly setting too much of a problem. Overall a lovely stay.

Dear Khun noodlesn, Thank you for your holidays experiences shared. Happy to read you enjoyed the stay with us. Please may I corrected you about the breakfast which is included in the accommodation package. It will start on the next morning after the check in and that can be exchanged with the last day if you will have to leave the hotel before breakfast starts. Hotel do actually offer a discount of 20% to support customers who come early and would like to consume after their long hours travelling. Thank you for your kind understand and look forward to serve you again for coming future. Warmest regards, Alex P Hotel Manager

We have just come back from an amazing holiday at this location. It’s in a beautiful setting on a hillside but you can call for transport from the lobby to take you to where you want any time should you need one. The staff are very professional and friendly always happy to see you. The food is simply delicious and cooked to order so always hot. The pools are immaculate we spent most of our time at the mango pool. The rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels. There is flip flops and a beach bag available for you to use as well which is a nice touch. There isn’t a lot to do at night time though as most people go off into Karon which is a 10 minute walk down the hill. A special shout to Mark, Sam, Su, Mehow and Billy although all staff couldn’t do enough for you.

What can we say, the hotel seemed to be quite full but never busy. The setting was beautiful and scenic. We had a pool access room at the banana pool, which I'd recommend as beds at the main pool always seemed taken. Staff couldn't be more helpful, especially Wee at our pool bar who always had a smile. Food was lovely and we particularly enjoyed the Thai restaurant. Buggys to take you to your room which is good after stuffing our faces with food and drink in town, also complimentary transport to the beach. Good location as Karon not too busy and only 10 mins in a taxi in either direction to Kata or the craziness of Patong. Would highly recommend this hotel.
