Room was really clean and neat. Almost Staff was Friendly too. But........ You may feel if you are from Asia. Some staff never smile, never say hello at the first time. For example in the mango pool, the bartender never reply me just show me hand sign. Even I said Sawadee kha, Kab Kun Kha, never reply. 5555555 Please give... More

Loved everything about Mandarava... I filled a TripAdvisor recommendation to stay at this place & im very glad I did. It's nestled on a hill overlooking the northern part of Karon, & only a 10 minute cab to Patong (350 bart). The 3 pools are exquisite & surrounded by palms & rainforest. Very relaxing & different to the hustle/ bustle... More

I got back two weeks ago from a great stay at the Mandarava. I had a few small things about the resort, but ultimately they don't offset the positives of the place. It's a gorgeous resort and makes for a relaxing setting. I'm thankful we picked this location opposed to Patong. Pros: -Beautifully landscaped property -Large rooms, that feel secluded... More

Mandarava is a larger resort located uphill in Karon. It takes 10 min walking downhill to the beach or 5 min with the hotel owned Tuk Tuk operating at an hourly schedule. The streets to the resort are a bit messy and dark but no reason to feel uncomfortable. The resorts spans over the hill which will require some uphill... More

If you want to get away from it all, come to the Mandarava Resort and Spa. We got a Panoramic Deluxe room overlooking the Pomelo Pool.
