Mandarava Resort and Spa Karon Beach, Karon
Beautiful, relaxing, and worth it!
Staying in Phuket for the last few days on our trip was the perfect way to relax. Mandarava made our trip even more spectacular. The room was relaxing and we loved walking out onto and into the pool. The food rivaled any five star restaurant and the staff was extremely polite and accommodating. There was construction happening around the Spa so it didn't look as beautiful as I imagine it does in the summer but the services provided were excellent. We would love to come back to Phuket and stay at the Mandarava again.

Mandarava Resort and Spa Karon Beach, Karon
Based on itinerary of our visit to Thailand, starting with Bangkok first, then Chiang Mai, and then Phuket, this was the perfect resort / hotel to end our trip. With the hustle and bustle of Bangkok to kick off our trip, the laid back atmosphere of Karon and Mandarava was the perfect chill and relaxed end to the trip. The hotel itself is a 15-20 minute walk to downtown Karon, and is situated on a hillside above town. This makes it feel far enough of way to be secluded from the noise and activity, but close enough where you can take a quick hike down the hill to participate in whatever the town has to offer. Again, the resort is quite large with multiple pools and on a hillside, so you may need to walk a little bit to get from one part of the resort to another. I didn't mind the walking / hilliness, but some parts can be quite steep. Besides walking you may need to call the hotel shuttle if you aren't able to walk. Being on a hillside allows for some great views - one of th best is from their restaurant where they have a great complimentary breakfast every morning. The rooms feel nice and luxurious and the A/C cools it fast and efficiently. The mango pool was closest to our room and was large and never felt crowded. Nothing bad to say about this place. A perfect place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.
