Hotel has superb privacy.. away from everything. Quiet. Perfect for honeymooners or anyone looking for quiet time. The swimming pools were great and nicely designed. Service was good. But a small percentage of staff needs to show some better service but I am not bothered as its just a small number of them. Miss the place already. Really really nice.
Nice Place to stay”
If you like to be away from the crowds, this is the place. Located 10 min walk away from the beach It is a nice relaxing place. If you have a room like us at the very end of the hilly hotel area you can get a ride from the lobby at any time, no waiting at all. Very nice and friendly stuff. Breakfast is excellent. Lots of smaller pools around the resort so guests are distributed. We had a room with private pool/direct access to the bigger pool - we loved it!
The staff are friendly and helpful. The resort is clean, pools are beautiful, breakfast was amazing with lots of different options to suit all tastes, most ethnic groups and fresh dishes. It was my sister’s birthday and they even delivered a cute little chocolate cake to her room. A lovely gesture and much appreciated. As in other reviews, to appreciate the view, and if you have a room higher up in the resort, be prepared to climb lots of stairs. We were exhausted every time we came back from town and even back and forth in the hotel. The little town is about 15-20 min pleasant walk. We found the hotel expensive to eat at so we walked into town where there are heaps of restaurants, many menue options and better value for money. When shopping in the town always negotiate prices (within reason). Massage also way too expensive at the hotel, go into town and again negotiate prices. We got a full 1hr body massage for 250bht. Enjoy Thailand is awesome!
This is a great resort! We would definitely stay here again. The room and view was beautiful. The staff were amazing and so friendly. The food was great (however we only had breakfast on the resort and ate one night at the restaurant at the top of the resort with the amazing sunset view). Great value for your money in my opinion! We stayed at three different resorts on our trip and this one was our favorite.
Perfect stay! ”
If you’re looking for a relaxing, cozy, clean, accessible, private and elegant resort and spa in Karon this is the place for you! We loved every moment of our stay. Not for those physically inactive since the villas are on a hill and some roads can be quite a walk if you’re not used to walking, but there’s always the resort shuttle that can send you in any part of the resort and town as scheduled. Would love to be back again!💙
Warm Thai Hospitality ”
We stayed 3 nights intentionally to be away from the busy Patong Beach. No regrets. This property is quiet and nicely designed in a green botanic garden. Only thing is it’s hilly and everywhere you go is up hill with 5 pools at different levels of the property. Nothing about this place is usual or normal. ya e were greeted with warm Thai hospitality from the time we checked in. The driver cum property guide was an experience in itself. This service is provided to bring guest to and from their rooms 24/7. The guides are so helpful especially Jaai, he’s one helpful person. Ask him and he will gladly assist without hesitation. Big breakfast spread with a wide variety as well. Only down side is that it’s not near Karon Beach which worked for us as we wanted to be away from the crowd. Anyway, the hotel offers complimentary rides to and from Karon Beach. Overall, we will recommend this property and will be back again next time.
Beautiful Property and Wonderful Staff”
The property was absolutely meticulously maintained. We enjoyed our deluxe pool access room. The pools are private and the views from the balcony were great too. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help answer questions. The property has on site transportation to get you around with just a phone call. Really enjoyed our stay here. The location was very close to karon beach but little closer would’ve been better. They offer shuttles about 5 times a day round trip but we opted for taxis instead. Overall, a beautiful resort that we really loved the views and privacy.
staff with a good attitude but amenities must be needed”
Staff in Mandarava were courteous and friendly and pool access room was satisfied. But there was some deficiency in some regard. when getting there even almost at 11:40pm, I must not have found any tooth brush and tooth paste in two rooms i had. In addition, i had to ask for shaving kit for my dad through the call, which was somewhat bothersome. other than that one, everything with scenery was relatively good to stay.
The staff were very friendly, nice environment to chill with your loved ones! btw, i really suprised that hotel will send me a birthday cake on that day, really appreciated it. Besides, the breakfast&room service was good, the room for me was cozy too! really like it!! Lastly, I would come again to phuket :)
We had a great time”
Pros—the place is like paradise, I love the gardens.. the build up.. not congested, I love walking and did that at your resort. The restaurant over looking the ocean... the food the room service and the personnel’s they were all very friendly .I love Miss Anni from the front desk, very personable and accommodating ..joy from the papaya pool is very nice too..and the person who opens the Gym for us every morning.. I truly thank him a lot..Food every morning is great...I love the early soup service..and the bake squash is my favorite..we hang out longer for breakfast not eating but enjoying the scenery.. I’ve traveled in Greece, Italy , Spain , the Caribbean,the Bahamas and Mexico but Mandarava in Phucket , Thailand is the best resort for me so far..I wish I can go back someday...I do a lot of walking and I tell you, I’ve circled the whole place and I truly love the place, every corner of the cottages are just beautiful tropical plants.. so exotic...🌴🌸🌺👙👍🏻
Good location but not for everybody”
The resort is located about 10 mins walk away to the town centre. The room we stayed in was spacious and well maintained. A good breakfast selection and the staff were friendly and helpful during our stay. They have 5 swimming pools nicely spread out within the resort which is great! They do not have a yoga room as stated instead they do provide yoga classes by the pool on selected days. However as the resort is up on the hill it can be a tedious walk to the lobby (and to the room) although they do provide inhouse shuttle service. Overall a great resort stay with good amenities.
Quiet relaxing stay in lovely tropical surroundings ”
Pros Secluded tropical environment Excellent food and good value Excellent service incl fast room service Rooms serviced daily, clean bed linen towels, etc Staff friendly and extremely helpful Lovely spacious rooms Cleanliness and comfort Pools Quiet location Privacy Cons Location away from the beach Lots of steps but there’s a regular buggy to take you around the resort
lovely place for rest and relax”
Very nice place to rest. We stayed in the Grand Deluxe Room for 3 nights in Feb. The room is clean and lovely with a large bathroom with beautiful free-stand bathtub; a walk-in closet where we can open two large luggage. Balcony with the view of Karon beach. There is several pools and poolside bar; the restaurant where we had breakfast and joined the Thai cooking class is nice and price is reasonable. I love the treatment of their Cheeva Spa as well. The staff is nice and friendly, always welcome us with big smiles. they are very helpful in serving us and planning our trip, very appreciated for that.
This hotel is a small paradise on earth. Everybody (staff and guests) were amazing. The hotel is so beautiful and the room amazing. It looks like a small studio with a beautiful view. A really nice area!
Highly recommended. ”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was very spacious and well appointed, the pools were all nice, the staff friendly and attentive and the breakfast buffet was large and delicious. They even made us breakfast to take away when we checked out early on the last day. I would definitely stay here again.
Paradise to escape from work”
Had booked this resort for a 4D3N trip, was quite sceptical on the way to hotel given the distance to beach is comparable further from the beach and lots of stairs and slopes to climb while getting from one place to another. Aside from that you could not ask for a better resort. Loved the rooms and balcony which is well built for chilling. Not forgetting the bar in the pool that offers u food/drinks while submerging urself among the forest theme. Love it, will definitely visit again.
I will start with the one and only negative comment : the hotel is a but far from the beach. There is a shuttle bus to bring us there but only at 2pm and 6pm if i am right so you will have to walk. Nothing impossible (10 to 15 min walk). Now all the positive things: the hotel is AMAZING, maybe the best i went to in Asia. The room: beautiful, with two larges balconies and an amazing bathroom and furniture are very high quality. The pools : 3 pools, all with a bar in the middle. Even more beautiful than on the photos The staff : very good english level, always helpful. 2 examples : we forgot our Iphone charger at home and they were able to charge them for us (2 phones at the same time) which almost never happens to be honest ! and at the end of our stay, they were able to "book" shower rooms for us so that even if we already checked out, we were able to take a shower before going to the airport. Well my advice : dont hesitate and book a room in this hotel !!
The hotel is located 5/10 min by walk to the sea side. It is on a hill a bit outside of the street which has all the restaurants & bars, which can create a bit of trouble when you have a pushchair like we had, but the staff was dropping us back to our bed room from times to times. The room was great with a lot of space, and a good selection of international TV channels(for the rainy days). The staff is very friendly, breakfast was excellent. Only drawback is when you have a baby (7 months) in a pushchair: the hotel is on a hill and the access to the restaurant requires few stairs to go up and down. The restaurant doesn't have a baby high chair, but a kid chair (2 years+ old I would say).
Fabulous hotel with caring and attentive staff”
We spent 4 days at Mandarava Resort and enjoyed every bit of it. Our room had a great view of the sea and sunset. The staff was very attentive. Upon learning that it was my fiancée's birthday, they sent a birthday cake to our room. While assisting us to book the birthday dinner at "On the rocks", the reception supervisor "Da" went the extra mile by informing the restaurant that it was a birthday dinner, got us good seats with clear view of the sunset, a 20% discount for our dinner and event a fruit platter with candles and birthday song thrown in. It's definitely a hotel that we will return to.
comfortable and relax environment”
Highly recommend if you want to stay karon area. Hotel Environment is peaceful.room is clean and hotel staff performance is great.10-15min walk to karon beach and some shop and restaurant.will come back again
