Mandarava Resort and Spa

TripAdvisor Review
Thailand, South East Asia
Phuket

Nestled in the scenic hillsides of Phuket just 5 minutes' walk from a stunning beach, this resort offers the perfect romantic getaway. The 130 rooms are set in 39 tropical villas and spread over 3 hectares, each furnished with a light wood décor, exotic high pointed ceilings, private balcony, air conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. Guests can take a refreshing swim in one of three spectacular infinity pools with swim-up bars, or take advantage of the free shuttle service to the sandy beach. The fitness centre and spa is the perfect place to stay fit while on holiday, or relax and rejuvenate with one of the numerous massage and beauty treatments on offer. Guests can learn the secrets to cooking wholesome, delicious Thai food with the cooking classes offered by the hotel's own restaurant chefs, and afterwards enjoy authentic Thai cuisine with enchanting ocean views, right next to a natural waterfall.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Lovely place for a holiday

Review by pastures13 Leicester, United Kingdom

We stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed this resort. The staff are exceptionally nice, always greeting us with a smile and friendly hello. This includes the gardeners and delivery people, room staff, restaurant and receptionists...

They were always helpful and kindly, The site is lovely - we had a room with direct pool access which was such a lovely experience. The design of the site means that we were always surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and plants, We ate in the restaurant for breakfast and some dinners. The food was very good and breakfast has many choices but we especially loved the freshly made pancakes. Alex the manager leads my example and was a lovely person around his staff. He speaks highly of them and we could see that he was helping out in the restaurant where needed in the mornings. Another great thing was the taxi services - the taxi organising lady was so helpful. We will definitely be returning!

Excellent Resort

Amazing resort with a beautiful garden and jungle vibe. The whole resort is covered in trees and plants and we saw animals like squirrels, birds, lizards etc.

Great room with view of the garden and swimming pool...

The pool and gym are great and the buffet breakfast had endless options.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful including the reception, kitchen staff, gardeners, luggage handlers etc.

Nothing Negative, wonderful Holidays

Review by nsllim123 Ko Samui, Thailand

We spent two weeks at the Mandarava in April 2022. What a wonderful stay. We had the Sea Fan Deluxe Room...

The staff were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Whenever we saw a staff member they friendly said hello and smiled. All of the staff from the cleaners, gardeners, porters, managers just want you to have a great time and made you feel welcome. The Mandarava is about 5 min away from the beach on a hill. With lots of greenery to give it a tropical feel. The whole resort is very big but there was always a friendly staff member waiting in the lobby to drive you back to your room. The rooms are huge, beautiful and clean. We really enjoyed our stay here. Karon is also a great location to explore the island. You can reach almost everything you want within one hour. We highly recommend the Manadarava if you ever come to Phuket.

Long Awaited Holiday

Review by dianerB4887EF Stockport, United Kingdom

We spent two weeks at the Mandarava in April 2022 What a gem of place. We had an Aqua delux room and it just made the holiday that bit special. We could go out in the day come back and know we could just lie on the lounger any time of the day.

The staff were incredibly friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them...

Everyone of them would say Shawadee Kah when ever they saw you. Mark in the restaurant couldn’t do enough for you, really good English and so kind and caring. All of the staff from the cleaners, gardeners, porters, managers just want you to have a great time.

The Mandarava is spaciously spread out in small blocks of four, so peaceful with amazing views of the sunsets. With lots of greenery to give it a tropical feel. As the hotel in on a hill a jeep style vehicle is provided to take you to your room, which is sometimes needed in the heat or you just don’t want to walk. Everything is thought of in this beautiful hotel. The spa is well worth a visit, I had more than one.

We hired a moped for 11 days, looked at Google maps and decided where we were going that day, really allowed us to explore Phuket. We visited ‘The Big Buddha’ , freedom beach, Phuket Old Town Yanui beach and lots more.
