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

I have just come back from Goa after travelling about and I stayed in three different hotels. This hotel was absolutely amazing. It is not for everyone though, if you are not in touch with nature and you are looking for an enclosed air conditioned room then this isnt the place for you. We stayed in one of the nomadic... More

We were looking for something special, and we got exactly what we needed. The prices are indeed a bit steep for what you get in terms of facilities. A small tent, having to go to the bathroom and shower that is shared by all other tents (shitting under the stars and looking outside of the cabin through a 1cm gap... More

......then The Mandala is the answer. It's not like any mainstream tourist resort but one of its kind in all aspects. First of all the very creative way the place is decorated. Lovely hand carved wood frames and paintings worth a true artist covers the house. In the garden small cosy seating areas is made in shadow for the lovely... More

In 20 years of travel its hard to think of a place as unique as the Mandala Resort in Goa. Exactly s it describes itself, the Mandala spreads itself out across a huge garden with a creative flare that shifts from lazy daytime retreat to ambient, easy-on-the-ear nightlife. I was able to watch movies under the stars, dance to a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mandala resort is a unique destination created by artists & designers from around the globe, where comfort meets nature in harmony and laid back atmosphere and serenity are a priority.The concept of the Mandala is to provide a serene and peaceful destination in lush Goan nature where inspiration is in abundance. It is a haven for the open minded traveller looking for something out of the ordinary.There are five double-storey "Nomadic mansions" which sleep up to four people and seven beautifully designed tents suitable for one or two, all of which have been created with attention to detail and a sense of originality.The emphasis is on integrating with the natural surroundings, leaving your worries at the gate and generally feeling at peace.The word Mandala means the unity of all things in harmony within a space, so whether one chooses to participate in yoga courses, kayak down the river, relax on the veranda enjoying the view, watch the numerous species of birds circling the lake or sampling our healthy menu in the Mandala Restaurant….As said in Hindi...Sub kuch milega!
