Activities in Rawai, Phuket and the surrounding Islands

There is so much to do in Rawai, Phuket and at the Mangosteen Resort!

Phuket offers a wide variety of possible activities and if you only stay around one week, it is impossible to do and see all. Depending on weather and season, there are many beautiful Island excursions on offer, towards the open sea, where you can do great snorkeling or diving or towards Phangna Bay, where the famous limestone rocks and caves are waiting for you. There are hundreds of tour operators and many websites nowadays, trying to sell these excursions online. We would however not recommend booking any of these trips in advance. The quality of operations varies greatly, some are cheap but you get what you paid for, some have strange cancellation policies. For example, in case of bad weather, there would be no refunds. Reserving once you are on the Island makes a lot more sense, so don’t worry, all the tours can be booked just one day in advance, once you arrived at the Mangosteen.

Phuket is famous for great seafood, shopping, nightlife and shows. The offer just got larger and larger in recent years, offering an activity for anybody, no matter what the preferences are. When staying at the Mangosteen Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, guests are enjoying proximity to almost all must-see locations on the Island.
