The entrance to Mandala is off the less than impressive main road near station 1 but it's like entering another world you pass the gates and make your way up to reception. I only have two regrets! One is that I didn't go during the day to really enjoy the lush greenery and foliage on the way to our treatment... More

I frequent the island of Boracay not just to relax and enjoy the white sand beach the Philippines has been boasting about but also to visit Mandala Spa - with its exceptional service, you'll always feel pampered and loved. The ambience makes you feel like you're one with nature, like you have found your place of solace. They even offer... More

I've always been a massage aficionado but after my Mandala spa experience, I can best be described as an instant fanatic. If only I could go to Boracay every single week just to experience the deep tissue massage plus sauna, I definitely would! Boracay will not be complete without experiencing Mandala. The massage was invigorating in all aspects. It's calming,... More

For our second trip to Boracay, we decided to stay again at the wellness heven Mandal Spa. With hilltop views of the ocean surrounded by lush gardens far away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists area...this is the quiet perfect retreat were searching for. We were amazed yet again with the level of service provided by the owner... More

I'm a city boy. Most of my spa experiences have revolved around what the city provides as ''spa'' centres. Boy, was I totally missing out. One visit to the Mandala Spa and Villas was what brought me to this realization. While it suffices to say that everything about THIS spa is EXCELLENT and that it's almost difficult to say just...

After a disappointing massage in one of the local massage place, I was so happy that Mandala spa was recommended to us. I didn't expect to find an amazing spa in this island. The ambiance is just gorgeous,outside and inside the villa.The staff are friendly and polite and well trained,very professional in what they do. Had the very first time... More

As soon as you enter the little tree covered entrance driveway to Mandala, the madness of Boracay literally evaporates behind you. Even during the rainy season, it was an absolute delight to share the space with just a few others, & the staff were incredibly attentive. Special arrangements were made for meals including the chef & assistant cooking a 5... More

I still keep talking about it 8 years after, and I will still talk about it for the rest of my life! This is the best spa I have ever been to. The moment we came in till the time we left, it was absolutely amazing. These young tiny young ladies can make you fall asleep in seconds. They have... More

Mandala Spa is an oasis in the party island of Boracay. Set in beautiful grounds the villas are fantastic, spacious and very well decorated with a lovely big bath, outdoor shower and glass doors on the entire front of the villa that open to a balcony and let lots of light in. It is really good value for money with... More

As more treatments become available (and even encouraged) for everyone, it can be a challenge to know what's worth your time and money. Given Boracay's reputation as a hard-partying beach island, the pampering done in Mandala after all the activity in the beach makes up for the almost two-hour communion with serenity and tranquility.
