Mandala Spa & Resort Villas
Ranked #24 of 151 Hotels in Boracay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We stayed in Mandala for a week as a semi honeymoon. It's very nice that is far from the noisy front beach. We get our villa and we fell in love with everything, the big, big big bed, the outdoor shower, the big bath and the porch. It is very relaxing and intimate.

We got a daily massage included in the price. I advice to book directly with the hotel to see what they offer.

The staff is very helpful and friendly and the breakfast wonderful.

The yoga class I don't recommend. The teacher didn't realise that some of the students were not as stretchy as she was. Not so good for me.

But the entire stay was nice.

The accommodation was excellent. The staff were very attentive, helpful and everyone is so nice to deal with. The spa package is remarkable from the foot bath to the scrub to the floral bath.

During the foot bath, the spa attendant (Farrah) was so gentle with my feet. It felt like she was handling a little infant. The scrub was so delightful and the massage was very relaxing I actually fell asleep.

During our last night, we went to the reception to arrange our transfer to the airport the next day. We were surprised that everything has already been arranged by them. They even had someone scheduled already the next day to pick up our luggage and take us to the airport even before we arranged it. Now, that is excellent customer service.

Each and every staff member is very polite and made you feel very important. I have never been treated like a King in my whole life. I would recommend Mandala to anyone without hesitation. If you want to feel like royalty just once in your life, book with them. You will definitely feel like you are in heaven (if only the mosquitoes would stop reminding you that you are actually on earth).

Room Tip: There is only one Pool Villa. So, if you want to book it, you may have to do it well in advance.

I was impressed with their services during my first stay, their staff was always so nice and helpful and the spa was superb, not cheap at all but you wouldn't regret it for sure. The free yoga class was fun and the tutor was pretty good at it too! The only hiccup was the wifi which didn't work, we didn't mind though.

The second stay was also pleasant and comfortable, most staff were attentive and friendly, esp. Allon who escorted us to the hotel from the airport and the guys at the breakfast place, however, i really did not expect a quality hotel like this to have their receptionist trying to sell outdoor activities to their customers, day in and day out, as if all she cared was whether i'd want to book the activities from her, over my well-being in the hotel. That got pretty annoying when being asked the 3rd and 4th time. Also, the wifi didn't work again, after a while i realised it's because we were being given the wrong password...

Having said that, everything was pretty perfect. The hotel is located away from the market (D'Mall), it will take around 15mins or a tricycle to get there. And the nearest beach is 5-10 mins of walk away. We were ok with that.

Also, there is no gym/swimming pool but who needs a swimming pool when you have the world nicest beaches just near?

Went to their Boracay spa two weeks ago with my husband for their signature massage and it was amazing!
The moment you stepped in their vicinity you know you are up for something. The ambiance will set your mood to a well deserved pampering. Contrary to the busy and always-packed Boracay, This place offers the tranquility one is needing. The villa was perfect but the massage was even more! Soft hands, right pressure, soothing music - excellent!
Will definitely be back! Did recommend this to a friend and his hubby - they went last week and nothing but praises too!

Myself and my boyfriend visited Mandala spa two weeks ago. Even during the booking process we felt welcomed and relaxed. The next day we returned for our massages and received impeccable service. The transition from the reception to the waiting rooms then finally to the villas were well planned. The massage itself was exactly what I needed, and just as it started a storm passed over and it was quite surreal. The therapists were so polite and genuine and made us feel so comfortable. I really like the concept of planting a tree for every spa treatment. We visit Boracay regularly, and I cannot wait to return to Mandala Spa, thank you again.

Been to several spas in Manila, Tagaytay and in Boracay but none best deserves recognition and praises as Mandala Spa. The spa specialists are keen to adjust to your comfort and response. Soft hands, gentle feel, soft voice tone, smooth transition and movement. Courtesy in every turn. Pleasurable experience. Ambience surreal. In touch with nature. One thing, front desk spa has to greet the clients first and not make them wait. Overall, excellent execution.

My new bride and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Mandala Spa in Boracay. We were met at the airport and escorted to the dock for the short boat ride over to Boracay Island itself; check-in was completed in our room, although I would rather describe it as a bungalow, missing only the kitchen.
The room was magnificent, well appointed with a large flat panel TV, an enormous bed and a bathroom to die for. The shower is external to the bathroom (it is actually outdoors). The resort is founded on principles of peaceful reflection and wholesome products both food and used for the spa. We availed ourselves of the in-house massage service and also partook of one of the special relaxing baths during the week we were there.
The staff were excellent, most friendly and helpful, always with a smile and happy greeting. The resort offers beach towels for guests to take out each day at no additional cost (just bring them back) and the security guys will call a tricycle for you if you would like them to.
With respect to the location of the resort, this was close enough to the main beach to be a short walk, or a motor tricycle ride to the centre of the main beach at D'Mall. This means that it is quiet, as Boracay can become a bit boisterous, and yet you can have an evening out quite easily.
We ate out on most occasions apart from breakfast, there are so many different options to chose from in the town and on the beach front.
I would summarise the stay here as excellent, the resort is expensive, but you get what you pay for in the terms of comfort and quality of stay. It could be argued that a bar, proper restaurant and pool would benefit the place, but I would disagree as all of these can encourage noise and would detract from the overall ambience. Would I return, yes, but probably not for a week and only once I have saved up for it.
