I booked 7 nights here a few months ago via booking.com. While in India I was very surprised to receive an email from the Mandala asking for half payment. I had already provided card details to booking.com. The email was long, convoluted, and totally absurd. It suggested 4 different payment methods, all onerous for the customer. They even asked me...

We spent two weeks at The Mandala Resort enjoying the hospitality of the Mandala team. From the very beginning, it was easy to book a room and upon our arrival we were warmly welcomed by Mandala staff. The Nomadic Villa in which we stayed is beautifully designed with lovely private deck and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The... More

I'm more into Pina Coladas than yoga as the song goes but it doesn't matter. Although billed as a yoga retreat you can do your own thing. To those like me used to mid to good range Western Hotels the accommodation may comes as a bit of a shock...basically just wicker and wood huts on stilts. A bit basic, maybe... More

Probably a little over priced for what you get as it is not close to the beach - just over a 5 minute walk - and the grounds are laid back but also a little in need of some care (compared to the neighbouring Ashiyana resort which has beautiful manicured gardens and walkways). The 2 storey villas are unique accomodation,... More

My friend & I stayed here for 2 nights & it is such a peaceful hotel. We stayed in an eco villa which was a gorgeous little bamboo hut. Communal showers & toilets which are fine, just as you'd expect. Beautiful gardens & area to sit outside. 5-10 min walk from the beach but is an ideal distance out of... More

This was our first stop in Goa during a 2 week trip. A range of huts, "villa's" and apartments (available in one wooden building) are set in a very chilled garden which is beautifully lit at night. We had booked the 2 story villa. This was spacious and with a nice balcony on the top floor overlooking the water. However,... More

I just realised my previous review didnt go through... so slightly delayed but just to say this place is super cool - with Andrew and Anjalika running an awesome ship. the food is superb, especially breakfast, and the place is nice and relaxed. wonderful yoga, very comfortable rooms, and a really nice vibe of all guests and staff. It's not... More

Simply put, the Mandala is far inferior to other hotels in the area, particularly those at similar price points (I would suggest checking out the Ashiyana next door, which is where we ended up spending a lot of our time, opting to take yoga classes/eat meals there or in other restaurants in the area). The property is fairly run down... More

The place is exactly how it looks In the picture. It's clean and beautiful and quiet. But it's not very kid friendly. Though the rooms are very basic n aesthetically done it lacks AC n fridges which might become a necessity if one is traveling with babies n toddlers. Also food is a challenge in the night. As there are... More
