We spent 3 nights at the Mandala this february 2015 and were very happy with the staff (managers and restaurant staff), the food which was extremely tasty, the laid back feeling and beautiful garden/grounds of the place. We stayed in the Lake view room. Had a beautiful view on the lake from a nice balcony. King size bed very comfortable.... More

I had a cute little tent & kind of enjoyed the shared outdoor bath house. the Mandala was within walking distance of the beach, & the vegan food here is very very good. Amazingly colorful &... More

The energy and magic that surrounds The Mandala can`t be desribed in words, it needs to be experienced. Both me and my kids had an amazing time, and now it`s... More

Idyllic surroundings and very peaceful. We stayed in the Nomadic Villa which was nice and also clean although we didn't have power for two nights which, considering we paid 90 quid a night was a bit of a rip off. Our check in was basically non existent and we weren't told where the beach was, when the bar was open... More

We've stayed in a few places in Goa over the years, and I can honestly say that our experience at the Mandala was among the best. The service is incredible; the staff literally cannot do enough for you and most of them speak great English. The place is run by a lovely couple - Andrew and Anjalika - who gave... More

This year I came back for the yoga classes and the food. I cant get my head around the amazing food that chef Angus cooks for you. It is so pure, healthy and... More

My infatuation with India began in January 2014, when I was invited to attend an adventure yoga/creative writing retreat held at the Mandala Resort. It didn't take long to be seduced by this funky little bohemian paradise nestled in a North Goa beach town! Smitten, I extended my stay once; then twice. I ended up staying there for a glorious...
