We arrived at the mandala after 3 weeks in Rajasthan - looking for three relaxing days - it's wasn't. First of all - more our own fault for not noticing - the hotel is quite far from the beach... There are much closer and cheaper hotels we found out after arriving. Then we realised we had bed bugs in our... More

Tucked safely away from the rubbernecking revelry of Ashwem and Mandrem, cocooned in a magical hush all its own, is The Mandala. Speak friend, and enter. For the days you spend here will give you far more than expected. A river runs by it, the beach is minutes away and morning yoga beckons from the garden dome. It's pretty as... More

We only stayed at the Mandala 3 nights as we had to travel on, but we wished we had booked more time there: excellent place with adorable, intelligent, friendly and engaging staff and very chilled out guests. Lovely food, clean rooms, super attentive service - and a good reliable wi-fi for those addicted to the interwebs:P. We took the room... More

I met Angus, Anjelika and Andrew in 2012 when a friend of mine was participating in a yoga retreat there. We sat talking at the bar, and I loved the feeling of the place. I was conceptualizing my own yoga retreat for the following year and, after some lengthy discussion I decided to have The Mandala be the setting for... More

We stayed here at the end of October, just before the start of 'the season'. Access to The Mandala was by foot - a short walk across a rice field. It felt as if we were truly escaping our manic lifestyles and entering a serene world, full of the peace and quiet we were craving. Our room was huge, very... More

The Mandala is a wonderful place to stay in Mandrem, Goa, particularly because of its friendly staff, and the nature embracing way in which most of the rooms are laid out, overlooking a serene small lake, and only 5 to 10 minutes away from the beach. The owner is also a chef, and hence the dishes prepared in the evening... More

The Mandala is a magical place to allow yourself to dream and connect to nature, to allow the child inside you to enjoy life. If you truly love nature and meeting extraordinary persons, and this matters to you much more than material goods or luxury, this is your place. Come here if your heart is open and ready.

We stayed in Mandala in March 2014 and we had one of the best experience in Goa. The location is (bit) off beat and is a good 15 mins walk to the beach, but the stay was very peaceful and the place is very close to nature. The staff were very friendly and specially Anjalika was very attentive for our... More

With a bunch of friends we were looking for a tranquil couple of days in Goa. Not the first time in Goa, second time in Mandrem. This time we decided to stay at the Mandala following a friend's recommendation. Stunning place, wonderful people, delicious food and great people running the place. Stayed at one of the houses - although wooden... More

I spent a week at the Mandala mid-January. I stayed in the Ganesh-view room with a beautifully and artfully carved wooden balcony. The accommodations were clean and welcoming, the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating and the food -- vibrant, colorful, fresh and delicious. It was a great location to be -- not directly on the beach but easy access... More
