We arrived here with friends after 5 days in Beach Street and stayed 5 nights. We had chosen garden villas rather than cheaper cabins but ours was dark and hot. The ground floor is pretty useless but the bed and bedroom were kept very clean. The bathroom was basic but ok, though dark. The balcony overlooked what had been optimistically...

My partner and I came to this beautiful resort as a result of the offer on booking.com. We stayed in the most beautiful villa, where we had our own private living room and massage parlour, the upstairs had a huge balcony overlooking the lake and our bedroom was massive. The staff are the friendliest and kindest people - from the...

The Mandela managers and staff are delightful - warm, friendly, nothing is too much trouble. But the pricing would suggest better faciities and a higher standard than is currently evident. Breakfast cups are grubby, food choices limited, cushions and furnishings tatty, plumbing poor (yes I know, this is India) and the grounds look very neglected. If you are into yoga...

Mandala is more an experience than the name of a hotel. Peaceful, an oasis, gracious service, simplicity without missing out...the experience is restful and as healthy as you choose it to be. Yoga classes, Eastern-inspired workshops, mindful eating of fresh cuisine set the scene for wellbeing. Anjalika and Andrew, the managers, host Mandala with grace and attention to detail. Their...

The Mandala is the place we recommend if you want to experience the very serene aspect of Goa. It is 7 minutes way from Mandrem Beach. You will enjoy a peaceful walk crossing a bridge to get to the beach and it is very safe despite the location with the security guards at night and lights. You can also easily...

The Mandala has an absolutely incredible energy about it and I would highy recommend it. Accommodation: We spent 2 days trekking around Arambol and Madrem looking for huts and although The Mandala was pricier than other huts in the area, it was absolutely the best value out there. The huts are clean and spacious and the beds and pillows are...

I stayed at The Mandala for a few nights for some rest and relaxation and it did just the job! I stayed in an Eco Hut which was a bamboo style hut, very spacious, clean and cool. With a cute seating area outside for relaxing with a book or a guitar. The whole place is decorated beautifully with hammocks, lanterns...

It's been a week since I left Mandala and really missing being there. The managers, Anji and Andrew, and the staff are so nice and accommodating. They were always ready to help or give advice on the area. I spent 9 days there and really enjoyed the daily yoga, peaceful ambience of the place, and the delicious food and juices...

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! (everything is possible) ... more   less
