An early concept drawing of the Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa
The Mangosteen Resort opened in March 2003, after 2 years of planning and construction. Initially offering 42 villa rooms, it was extended to 50 villas in 2017.
Applying construction technology completely new to Thailand, such as load bearing walls, 20 cm thick and well insulated, air ventilated floors and ceilings, an electrical system according to highest western standards, a high-quality feel was achieved hard to be found anywhere else in Phuket. Healthy living starts from good climate in the villas!
The concept was unique as it was one of the first ever Resorts in Phuket not located directly on a beach but on a hillside with amazing sea views instead. This allowed for generous space, better privacy and larger, tropical gardens. A shuttle to Nai Harn Beach provided beach access not to just any beach but to one of the best beaches on the Island. Nai-Harn is protected by National Park laws and a Buddhist Temple, occupying all the land behind the beach, thus avoiding any further development. Nowadays, many beach areas are too crowded, so more and more travelers are looking for quieter alternatives without going too far away from the tourist centers.
From the very beginning, a high-end Spa was integrated, which became Ayurveda Spa in 2010. The addition of the Ayurveda Programs was implemented very successfully, now leading to a broader approach adding many different wellness, detox and anti-ageing programs. Since September 2017, the new Prana Sala allowed for regular activity programs, such as Yoga session, Zumba Dance, Singing Bowls Meditation and many others. Yoga Retreats can be held at the resort with up to 20 people.
As a consequence, we made the resort children-free in 2013, a decision made purely based on guest feedback. It was what our guests were asking for and experience has shown, it was the right decision.
