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
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.

"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

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.

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 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.

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.

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

"PEACEFUL GET AWAY!"
01/28/15 ElsieA_63 New York City, New York
My family and a few family friends planned our New Year's Eve celebration in Boracay, Philippines for almost a year: as we all had known that this place became a NY 's eve destination for the locals and tourists. We were skeptical when our friends told us "it is too far from the beach". But, when we reached the place we immediately knew we didn't made a mistake picking Madala Villa as it is what we wanted: peace and the tranquility of the surroundings especially after the heavy party we did on the beach. We were very happy to have stayed away from the crowd and enjoy the nature and the peace and quiet of Madala VIlla could offer. We all agreed that we would have NO REGRET staying far away from D'Mall and even on the beach front. First of all -it had been raining since we arrived and the greenery just came even more alive after the rain- which is invigorating to see! The staff were very polite and courteous, wearing sweet smiles on their faces all the time. On our checked-in , I find the service a little bit slower than I would prefer but it only make sense because I came from New York City that never sleeps and everything is moving so fast. But then after I chill, the slow movement makes a lot more sense and it gave in to what was we exactly needed. The room was huge and the bed was very comfortable. It has all the room amenities we needed. Toiletries and the balcony is very pleasantly decked if you want to sit out. The healthy breakfast in the morning at the garden was just glorious. The complimentary yoga in the morning at the Hillside Yoga Shala (sometimes there's evening session - check their schedule) helped us get attached back to the spirit of our souls as, you tend to forget when you living in the big city. Our Villa is just 5 minutes walk to the white sandy beachfront and we do go there everyday for a swim and to get a foot massage that cost a few dollars. Mandala Spa massage package is a bit expensive but of course nothing is free when you wanted some good pampering of flower bath and a good massage on a very comfortable massage bed. The best thing of all is the peace and quiet of the spacious room that we were in and our masseuse is moving with gentleness and grace. A bit pricey on the holiday season but I must say it was worth the money we ever spent. We will definitely comeback again. Thanks to the staff of Mandala Villa and Spa for making our stay a memorable one.
"Peace of Mind"
01/19/15 Kenneth N
The resort is located on a hill and covered with many trees and plants, an extremely quiet resort and most importantly, the areas are clean. Staffs are well-mannered and helpful, all requests we have made were all handled timely. Food is excellent and they have vegetarian choices too. I have joined their yoga classes, both Hatha and Vinyasa, teachers are professional with extensive knowledge and experiences. The design of the classroom offers you a peace of mind. Their "signature massage" is a must-try item - great value and extremely professional service. I spent 3 days 2 nights there, and I will definitely go back again.
01/11/15 Steven F Manila, Philippines
Stayed there during Labor Day weekend and it was such a great welcome to flee from the masses and noise to our Villa at Mandala. Amenities in the Villa were great especially the Outdoor shower. Its a bit of a walk to the beach since it's not beachfront but absolutely doable.You can choose your breakfast from different options available. I would book there again.
"Quite a pleasant experience, but for quite a price."
01/09/15 WanderWomansWorld Manila, Philippines
Trying out anything in Mandala is quite an experience. Everything is unhurried, relaxed and charming. The service is really good. Staff are courteous and appear to have been well-trained. No one is rude here. The property is forested and they maintain well-tended tropical gardens. At night, the paths and pavilions light up just right, it lends that dreamy feel to this island resort spa. It seems intended for honeymooners and couples. The villa is dreamy, well-appointed, spacious, airy and cozy. It evokes nature's charm with its native theme that reminds me of Bali. We tried their massage and it was quite a fascinating sequence. You undress and put on the sarong, meet the masseuse in the waiting pavilion, walk on together to the massage pavilion, have some drinks, choose your essential oil blend, get your body kneaded and scrubbed by gentle hands while you stare at a pretty frangipani blossom and end the ritual with tea drinking. They will let you keep the sarong as a keepsake/token. Mandala has mastered the art of getting you in the zone. But once you are, the massage itself seems lacking. Not really the best spa treatment I had, but one of the priciest. The massage could use some further development. It certainly has potential but needs a little more work. Over-all, Mandala still rocks, though.
"Relaxing and Beautiful Place to Stay"
12/26/14 Shi Chuan L Singapore, Singapore
Stayed 3 nights in Mandala and found it a very relaxed and peaceful place to stay in. An alternative away from the crowded and more happening White Beach area. But if you want to go to the White Beach (Station 3) from Mandala, it's just a 8-10 minutes walk. Our villa was big and beautiful as seen in the pictures. Very spacious for both the sleeping and toilet area. Absolutely love the villa that we stayed indoors most of the time to enjoy it. When entering the villa, the staff had prepared flowers in the bathtub and on the floor. Breakfast was served at a small area and only 5 selections to choose from. There are more (eg. pancakes) but comes with additional charges. The dining area was nice but during the rain, it can be challenging to dine there as raindrops keeps splashing in. The resort could do something about this with more shelter installed. The restaurant does serve lunch and dinner (last order at 7pm) but also with limited choices. However, you are order delivery services from almost any restaurants in Boracay that provides this service. The hotel does have 3 partner restaurants you can choose from but if you have craving for MacDonald's or etc., they will gladly assist you with it. There are complimentary yoga classes at The Vessel every morning at 8.30am and lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes, which my wife and I went for 2 days in a row. The teachers are professional and accommodates to all levels of yoga learners. The spa was pricey but you pay for what you get. They are very professional and I would say we did enjoy our Mandala Signature Massage there. The spa villa was well-maintained, clean and cooling despite being without any air-conditioning. Massages robes are given to us complimentary of the spa as well. Staff were courteous and friendly, always greeting you both day and night. Sometimes it gets tough to get a hold of the front desk through the telephone but nonetheless, we're quite pleased with their services and hospitality during our stay here. As it was Christmas Eve, the resort gave us 2 muffins (pineapple and mango) and a pot of hot chocolate. It was a nice gesture and a small touch that makes our stay here pleasant and welcoming. I would recommend this resort if you're seeking a place away from the crowded White Beach of Boracay. And also for couples who are looking more a romantic honeymoon/anniversary stay.

"Secluded and relaxing"
12/09/14 PersianG48 Boston, Massachusetts
Mandala is a beautiful place with a relatively short walk to the beach on station 3 which I found much more relaxing than station 2 and more authentic than station 1. The resort itself is simple and relaxing. Rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Staff were courteous and super friendly and would do their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The daily yoga takes place in a spacious and semi open air studio and the instructor that we had at the time was great. He made it appropriate for all levels by offering modifications. The wellness center is absolutely beautiful and serene with variety of massages and treatments to choose from but a bit on the expensive side. I understand and appreciate the level of their expertise but I still think it's a little overpriced. The only reason I gave this place a 4 star as opposed to a 5, it's the spa pricing and the fact that there was no restaurant available on the premise. They offer delicious daily breakfast and juice, I wish they would just offer the same thru out the day. Other than that, it was perfect!
"A beautiful location"

With a beautiful location, free yoga class everyday plus other amenities including breakfast, it was a perfect place for a relaxing holiday! Only complaint would be no pool (unless you get pool room) but the beach is a short walk.
"Romantic place for honeymoon"
11/21/14 Hajar K Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Mabu Hay ot Boracay! What a great experience - the warm smiles & friendly service from all staffs (reception to cafe to housekeeping services). because we told them we just got married, the room were so tastefully decorated + with roses everywhere. service were excellent - we had super delicious seafood dinner in our room, good breakfast and late night request for panadol! I would stay definitely come again and recommend this to others if they want a relaxing & peaceful holiday in Boracay.
"Hidden gem in Boracay"
11/15/14 afaustino Boracay
The warm, gracious smiles of the staff is one of the best things that sets Mandala Spa apart from the rest of the resorts in Boracay. As soon as you walk into this place, a sense of calm and serenity takes over. The villas are absolutely lovely and relaxing! The staff are very accommodating and really go out of their way to welcome you and make you feel at home. For such a large establishment, I love the fact that they add personalized touches to make the overall guest experience more pleasurable. The quiet atmosphere of the resort is the perfect hideaway to hustle and bustle of white beach. Thank you Mandala Spa! A visit to the Spa or an overnight stay here is a MUST DO while in Boracay!
