"Tropical Escape in Third World Setting"
Hotel staff is friendly yet inexperienced. The facility is quiet and well maintained. With new rooms being constructed it is a free form work in progress.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed there for 5 nights and 6 days. It was my first visit to Boracay. The hotel is in zone 3 which was perfect for us. Zone 2 is where most of the partying and eating is done which is only a 10-15 min walk or 5 min tricycle ride. The hotel is about a 5 min walk to the beach which also is great. The rooms are peaceful and quite and the spa services […] are unique. All and all we would stay there again and completely enjoyed our stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing resort close to white beach."
This place surpassed all my expectations. The staff greeted me by name whenever they saw me, great service and everything done with a smile. For a hotel so close to station 3 it felt like I was in another world away from the hustle and bustle. Such a relaxing place to stay and an amazing room!! Thank you so much for making my holiday great!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel for your full rest"
Staff were extremely friendly and with great help. They made all my tour appointments. I enjoyed the complimentary yoga class as well. The room experience was the best. Oriental atmosphere and great welcome was so great. Since this place has a wonderful garden, mosquitos were around there but the hotel prepared for it as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice resort hotel"
Stayed 2 nights. Expedia has posted totally wrong location of this hotel near the Shangri-la, instead of somewhere in the other side of the Boracay island in station 3. However, it didn't change any good experience. 5 minutes to Talipapa and 15 minutes to D'mall by tricycle is convenient but also away from the crowed, which is good. 5 minutes walk to […] the white beach was a bit far, but acceptable.

"A week in Boracay"
The facility was very comfortable and quiet. There was no pool, the restaurant was under renovation which should have been disclosed on there website before I booked. I did not get the room that I originally booked. The breakfast portions were very small and choices few. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help. It was a 10 minute walk […] down to the beach at station 3. The spa treatment was outstanding but very pricey as was the price of the accommodations. Overall I was satisfied with my stay and would consider staying again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Mandala is a great hotel, surrounded by a beautiful garden. The rooms are big, with a lot of wood making them very enjoyable. A free yoga lesson is offered in the morning. The spa is probably great but the prices as high as In any western country. The wifi is included but the signal can be hard to catch, and network not super fast but that's the case […] for all the island. The breakfast is a la carte, the quality of the food is good but the quantities not as big as with a buffet. The walk to the beach is about 10 minutes, with many stairs that could be tiring for the ones who do not like walking. But being far from the crowd made our stay very relaxing. I would recommend without any doubt Mandala. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An Idyllic Oasis in a Cultural Desert"
After the most unique airport transfer ever, and already introduced therefore to the polite, smiling, smartly dressed staff who you always see around the Spa's well presented grounds. From check in, over better than adequate breakfasts (which do get a tad boring after day 5), superb spa treatments, to restorative ginger teas and checking out staff, […] of whom there are lots, are all smiley, polite, attentive but not overbearing. Room was all dark wood and clean, crisp cotton bedding with mosquito net tent of a bed. Clean and you felt very comfortable but 4/5 clean not 5/5. Our room had a balcony with one easy chair (should be two) and was overlooked which was a shame as it meant we kept our curtains closed. A ten minutes walk to White Beach, Station 3 was manageable and the distance was a blessing, as the hotel takes you away from the mayem and tacky chaos which dominates this, probably, once idyllic island.

Very relaxed location, secluded from the tourist noise of the island but close enough to be able to participate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed there for 5 nights and I must say everything was as good as I expected it to be. Took digital detox villa and the room was beautiful, clean and spacious. Bath tub was huge enough for 2. Water flow isnt that fantastic though. Very little water and the water is always either too hot or too cold. Spa really lived up to the standard and I felt like […] I was in paradise. It may be expensive it is sure worth the money. Staff were always very helpful to get tricycles for us when we wanted to go out and they always greet guests. It is not located at the beach but there is a private walkway of about 5 minutes to get to white beach, which is worth it because the beach is absolutely stunning. Breakfast is ok, you get to choose between 4 menus. Tried all but love spa breakfast the most. Will definitely be back again to mandala if I ever come to boracay again. Even if not to stay, the spa will definitely draw me here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice and so glad to have a complimentary bath and room decoration for my birthday celebration and wedding anniversary celebration. The warm greeting from every staff added value to my stay. Through it is not close to the shopping area but it only take 5 mins by tricycle to station 2 and 5-10 minutes walk to the beach. There are also many resturants […] and bars nearby. A very pleasant and relax stay. very enjoyable and great for those who love a silient environment for retreat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mandala Spa & Villas"
We stayed at this hotel over a 10 day trip to Boracay. The villas are fantastic. Totally secluded and private, great decor and little touches like incense and atmospheric music really set the mood. Probably one of the best rooms / villas I have ever stayed in. The setting of the hotel itself is also lush, green and peaceful - this place is perfect to […] relax in after a day out. The main downside was lack of proper wifi. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet & serene place"
If you like peace and tranquility this is a value for money hotel. The staff who show us to the room did not mention about the Lan cable that we can connect for internet so we used wireless .if only she did, we wouldn't have to bear with so weak connection .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good room space and very comfortable bathroom space. Very friendly staffs that greeted us everytime they see us and they were able to answer our quires. Love the private and peaceful surroundings and environment that provided a very relaxing feel to the whole stay. Beach is a short walk away. Ideal for people who prefer a peaceful and relaxed getaway […] and don't mind enjoying a little stroll to enjoy the buzz and happenings. A little down will actually be the inconsistent/weak Wi-Fi.

Gorgeous property set amidst lush greenery. Spacious villa with a beautiful outdoor/indoor bathroom. Wonderful, friendly, helpful and responsive team of staff (especially Glenda and Dale). Memorable "TREEtment" - you get to pick and name a tree that will be planted for every spa treatment you get. Truly memorable. Highly recommended!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by Mandala Spa & Villas Dear Morena, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay in Mandala Spa & Villas. We look forward to welcoming you again in your next future visit. Best regards, Liza Gamo Resort Operations Manager
my boyfriend and I was at Boracay for 4 nights and booked Mandala's Garden Villa for the 1st night stay. we checked n at about 8pm and the customer associate automatically extended our check out time for next day. Very secluded location and the front desk closed before 11pm. (we knew that cos we wanted to order food but no one pick up the phone from […] the front desk) therefore we have to walked out of the compound to explore on food options. sadly, we could only find convenient stores and bought cup noodles to ease the hunger. The bed was so grand in my opinion but the pillows are too soft. i have to stack 3 pillows up so that i could fall asleep. Also, the bed was a kind size but the mattress protector was queen size with very protruding quilt pockets and it was making me very uncomfortable and therefore i pulled out the whole mattress protector in order to sleep. the environment is very nice and the service staffs at the breakfast area next day was very friendly.

"Mandala stay was restful to the mind and spirits"
Mandala is where you go to rest your mind and spirits. The food is healthy and delicious, the staff were kind and pleasant and the place is tranquil and five star. Just 10 minutes tricycle away is the beautiful white beach which is both fun and crowded in some areas and all to yourself on both ends. Everything you need is in this perfect place in the […] Philippines. Its really more fun in the Philippines. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mooie villa's, maar afgelegen"
Na aankomst om ca. 23.00 uur bleek de villa nog steeds niet klaar voor gebruik. Airco en koelkast waren nog niet aangezet. Drankjes in de koelkast waren dus meer dan 30 graden. Geen bier, geen drank. Er is geen keuken dus men moet voor alles de deur uit en een taxi nemen.Genuine Expedia guest review
"아름답고 여유가 있는 곳"
프라이빗한 공간에서 나만의 시간을 가질 수 있어서 좋다. 전체적으로 열대나무와 풀 등,바람, 새소리 등이 너무 좋았다. 직원들도 너무 친절했고, 빠르고 급하지 않게 천천히 여유롭게 가는 그 공간이 참 마음에 남는다. 리셉션의 음악도 너무 좋았고... 다만, 룸에서 처음 들어갔을때 곰팡이 냄새가 좀 났는데, 친구 말이 이런자연친화적인 숙소는 약간씩 난다고 한다. 내가좀 예민한 편이라서 그 부분은 좀 힘들었다. 아무래도 바닷가 근처 습기가 많아서 그런것 같다. 아뭏튼 그거 빼고는 다 좋았다. 스파 서비스도 좋았고, 여유롭게 놀다가 근처 바닷가에 가서 수영하고 쉬고, 맛있는거 먹고 .. 이런게 휴양이고 휴식인것 같다.Genuine Expedia guest review

"온수 뺴고 100점"
말그데로 온수빼고 100점입니다. 온수가 조큼 약합니다. 뜨거운물이 아닌 미지근한 물이 나옵니다. 직원들과 객실은 여타 리조트보다 좋습니다. 새벽 체크아웃시 도시락까지 싸주는 센스!Genuine Expedia guest review
スパが有名ということで泊まりましたが、それ以外の設備は何もないため退屈しました。ビーチまでも徒歩で15分くらいかかるので便利ではありません。レストランやバーも当然ないので、寝るためだけにいる感じでした。 ただ、森の中のヴィラだったので静かに何もしないで過ごす人には良いかもしれません。Genuine Expedia guest review

"Rundum zufrieden :-)"
Wir haben hier sieben wundervolle Tage und Nächte verbracht und waren rundum zufrieden. Der Sevice war ausgezeichnet, das Personal sehr zuvorkommend, jederzeit behilflich und freundlich. Also wir können hier wirklich nicht meckern.... Das Bett war herrlich groß mit einem Moskitonetz versehen (wirklich nicht unwichtig... Achtung Moskitos!). Frühstück […] gab es morgens zwischen 6 und 10 Uhr in verschiedenen Varianten - stets mit frischem Obst und Saft. Über den Spa Bereich kann ich leider nichts sagen.... irgendwie sind wir nicht dazu gekommen, diesen tatsächlich zu nutzen ;-) ... aber ich bin mir sicher, dass dieser sich auch nicht verstecken muss - das Angebot ist auch hier wirklich reichlich... Zum Strand muss man ein kleines Stückchen die Straße entlang gehen, bis man diesen erreicht, aber das ist durchaus machbar. Die Bilder auf der Webseite zum Zimmer entsprechen durchaus dem, was einen erwartet... In jedem Fall würde ich durchaus wieder das Mandala für einen weiteren Aufenthalt wählen.

풀숲같이 우거진 자연친화적인 객실이 좋았고 꽃잎으로 로멘틱하게 셋팅해줘서 기분도 좋았습니다. 조식도 부페가 아닌 4가지중 선택해서 먹는게 맘에 들었습니다. 다들 친절하게 대해주셨어요. 쉬기 좋은데 트라이시클 지나가는 소리가 좀 나요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"넓은 룸, 조용한 주변 환경"
친절한 서비스에 만족했습니다. 아침 일찍 갔음에도 불구하고 먼저 방을 내주어서 편히 쉴 수 있었구요, 위치는 해변가와 조금 떨어져 있지만 그 만큼 조용히 쉴 수 있어서 좋았습니다. 다만, 현대적인 시설을 원하시는 분들은 조금 불편할 수 있을 것 같습니다. 조식도 훌륭했고, 서비스도 좋았습니다.다만 현대적인 시설과 보라카이 해변에서 특히 디몰 가까이서 놀고 싶은 분들은 피하시는 게 좋을 듯 합니다. 저는 추천합니다!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"There's nothing like it!"
03/23/15 Andra O Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
It was an amazing experience from beginning to end! There is no requirement that is not taken care of attentively by the friendly staff. It is a little bit of a walk from the beach, but you will appreciate that if you want some peace and quiet once you get to your room.
"One of the best SPA @ Boracay"
03/17/15 Peng Y
We had signature spa, and the SPA and service were wonderful. We were one hr early for our appointment, so we walked around the resort. Every resort staff whom we met would greet to us. One of the most friendly place at Boracay. SPA receptionist were super nice. I had major mosquito bites and they provided me bug bite medicine and also lite mosquito coil incense. SPA itself was great and relaxing. Totally worth trying!! Thumbs up!!
"Perfect for Detox"
This hotel is ideally located on Station 3 which is away from all the party noises in Station 2 and D'Mall area. Although not located on the beach, the property provides a unique experience. The villas are extremely specious and well maintained - perhaps the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in! The service is excellent and the complementary spa session is truly one of its kind. Dining can be quite disappointing since the hotel doesn't have a full fledged functioning restaurant. However, they arrange room delivery from nearby restaurants which also means endless wait. If you are a yoga enthusiast and want to enjoy a detox experience, Mandala could be just the hotel you are looking for. But we were there to enjoy the sunny beaches and party hard so we did regret slightly for choosing the hotel because there are a number of good options on the white beach stretching from Station 1 to 3.
"Oasis on an over commercialised paradise island"
03/14/15 Neil R Eardisley, United Kingdom
Some 10 minutes walk from the stunning but over developed White Beach (Station 3), this is a true oasis of calm. Set back from the busy road with its well cared for, tropical gardens your Villa is a large roomed, posh hut with large bathroom and outdoor, but under plastic cover, shower. Our villa (no 6) came with a balcony with only one chair, but as this was overlooked by a neighbouring property we weren't inclined to use it. 9 nights was too long to be on Boracay for folk of our age, but Mandala was relaxing, we had two excellent (but not cheap) treatments. The numerous staff are all friendly and attentive, breakfast served in mid garden gazebos was good for 3 days but became a tad monotonous. A restaurant is being opened and this will further enhance the experience.
"Best spa in Boracay!"

It's my second time to stay here. I love the signature massage plus you can get any treatment in your private villa. Perfect way to end your day! Very lovely staff and the property is so lush that you feel like you're in a rainforest, very relaxing!
"Everything is amazing!!!"

We are just at the hotel, staying at pool villa and we are totally spoiled by everything...nice staff, amazing villa, great service, couldn't be better...one suggestion to the management, they should change the menu of the breakfast here and there, after couple of days, it gets boring
"pool villa - perfect spot for romantic and relaxing vacations"
02/26/15 Ciganitazinha Macau
We stayed there in a pool villa for 9 nights... and would have stayed at least 9 more! The location is superb, with an amazing view and 5 minutes walking distance from the beach, which is an advantage because down there is quite noisy and up in the villa is very quiet. The staff is very kind and helpful although sometimes a bit inconvenient - they called every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times, asking when we wanted the room cleaned :s The pool was a bit small but made all the difference because we could enjoy the villa all day long even when the day was hot and the sun was burning. Some of the amenities do not work, like the BBQ, which was a disappointment. The curtains were all broken so when we lifted them they were hanging on one of the sides... not pretty! Wifi works very well. Overall it is a good choice, we loved it!

Pretty good massage. Relaxing music and area. Beautiful Setting. Good service ( I had the T-Suite package- seaweed bath is ok , other part is better, i like the massage and scrub part ) The mango shake is absolutely awesome. They help arrange tranportation for a fee. It's at station 3. Would be back for their massage. Beware of mosquitos when you take a bath...
"Excellent place for honeymoon"
02/13/15 Ah_soon89 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Went to the Philippines for the first time for my honey moon @ Boracay. The stay was excellent. Near to the beach (5 mins walk). Near to shops and restaurants too. If possible avoid station 2. It's too busy and crowded. Nice to visit but not so nice to stay at. Tricycle is negotiable and usually around 30-50peso per ride per person and you can get almost anywhere. Mandala stay was awesome. Clean and romantic. Good breakfast. Highly recommended

Spent a week here with my love last year. Is beautiful. Peaceful. Quiet. Love the outdoor shower plus the milk bath decorated with rose petals, very romantic. At night all u can hear is the frogs noise. Quite a walk from the beach but is okay.
