The stunning Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa in Phuket, Thailand (pictured above) is beautifully positioned on a hillside with stunning views that take in 4 bays and numerous lush islands. You feel like you’re in your own little world but are still close enough to the “must-see” attractions on Phuket to explore when you want to. The resort boasts 41 gorgeous villas, a world-class Ayurveda Spa and an authentic Thai Restaurant and Wine Cellar, all surrounded by lush green tropical gardens.
Mangosteen is family owned and the personal touch is evident throughout, the owners are always on hand to help and go the extra mile. The fact that the resort is adult only means the wonderfully peaceful atmosphere remains uninterrupted at all times giving you the space to enjoy the amazing tropical gardens and your beautifully appointed luxury villa.
The swimming pools are truly breath-taking, you could easily forget you’re not just swimming through the tropical gardens themselves. The swim-up bar is a rather fabulous addition too. For some extra indulgence, the luxury spa is based on the healing and balancing practices of Ayurveda and is the only Ayurveda Spa in Phuket. The resort also offers a range of classes for guests to enjoy, including: Thai Cooking, yoga, Batik classes, towel folding and diving courses.
For accommodation, there are 6 varieties of villa but all include private terraces or balconies and separate living areas.
