Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa, Phuket
Filled with dense rainforests, striking beaches, mountainous landscapes and island-hopping thrills, Phuket certainly shines bright as a must-visit Thai gem in the Andaman Sea. Amongst its diverse top-notch resorts, make a beeline for The Mangosteen Resort & Spa: a four-star family-run spot in southern Phuket, spread across 25, 000 square metres of tropical gardens and situated just a short drive from Phuket's vibrant old town, Patong Beach and Phromthep Cape.
Here you'll find adult-only boutique bliss in the form of 41 serene villas, authentic Thai food, an Ayurvedic spa, and a large free-form swimming pool designed for delightfully lazy afternoons. If you're simply looking to relax, unwind and do absolutely nothing, you can treat yourself to a healing Thai massage before kicking back in your villa's very own hammock or outdoor Jacuzzi. Those itching to keep busy will never need to stray far from the resort, either: whether you're an active water baby or a lover of fine cuisine, arts and crafts, you'll find diving, cooking classes and Batik lessons all available on-site.
