The hotel is located away from the crowded part of White Beach, so it was very relaxing but a bit of a walk to get to the heart of the tourist area with all the shops and restaurants. My room was big and quiet but could use an update and the wifi was very slow. The restaurant was good but didn't have a big menu. The best thing about the resort is the spa. I got the Princess package, and it was amazing.
This review is for the spa only. Mandala was recommended for their spa treatments by many on the island. My friend and I walked in and made appointments for the following day (fyi: it was a bit further from the beach area than expected, but still walkable). They graciously agreed to pick us up at our hotel the next morning (100 PHP fee) since we were staying elsewhere. We chose the 2 1/2 hour package treatment that included a foot bath, cucumber wrap, massage, facial and tea time. The treatment hut is situated in lush, beautiful setting and the many treatments were excellent. The price is extremely affordable (less than $100 USD for the entire experience). Highly recommend!
Upfront: the spa treatments are fantastic. Go for a massage, but do not stay at the hotel. • rooms are in need of repair. The property has seen better days (probably years ago). Furniture and grounds are dilapidated • you can choose between a room that looks against a wall (garden view) or a room looking towards a club blasting (bad) music every night • lots of mosquitoes everywhere • beach is around 10-15 minutes walk, not 5 as started • most crucially nothing is operating: - the restaurant is closed - yoga classes are not happening either - in room breakfast menu is reduced to 1 item (omelette) - but only if you can reach someone at the front desk. Today I have been trying to get ahold of someone for hours, no luck Staff is lovely when you can get a hold of them, but they can’t do much. Feels like management needs to make up their mind if they want to run a hotel or just focus on the spa, and dedicate resources to make it work. Currently not worth your money - stay away.…
The spa experience was excellent definitely 5 stars. I had trouble there! We decided to walk. It appears that google doesn’t have the right direction We decided to walk with guidance from google maps. It took us more than half hour in the Hot sun. A suggestion to the establishment is to offer pickups, quite easily possible with the Army of three wheelers that are EV on the island.
Booked this place - make sure to pay in full- not at the hotel - as that was the option. They cancelled my booking one day before showing up. Had to find a last minute and better replacement. We booked through Booking.com- and two days later they decided to cancel!
For our third time here, I tried their hot stone massage. It was very relaxing. The therapists are commendable for their awesome technique. Indeed, Mandala is the best spa in the island and probably in the country. We will definitely come back. Special thanks to Elke for her unparalleled hospitality and the entire team of Mandala for the excellent service.
We went for a treat today and will definitely be back Elke and Cedric who booked us in and gave us a warm welcome were great and the villa and spa treatments were fabulous! Thank you to Ria and Clarisse for ensuring our experience exceeded our expectations. From the moment you enter the drive off the main road, you begin to relax and then the villas provide an oasis of tranquility away from the beach. We can’t recommend it highly enough but we wish we could have stayed overnight..the current restrictions won’t allow it but hopefully sometime soon.
It was our second time to have a massage here. I just want to commend Elke for being so accommodating. Kudos also to all the staff for being so approachable. Therapists were great also, they really know how to make your experience worth it. Mandala’s will always be one of our desired Spas to unwind in the Island of Boracay. Exquisite service, as always!
Absolutely loved experiencing my spa package at Mandala spa! This place is gorgeous on Boracay island & the service was truly exceptional! The villas were comfortable, quiet, and luxurious. I highly recommend this resort!
I was recommended by my hotel Jony’s when I asked about the best Spa in boracay. This is the perfect retreat. The reception area and trees in front may be kind of giving not a perfect first impression but the spa massage treatment is so exceptional. Thanks to the very kind receptionist who told me their special massage + scrub package. The therapist May is truly really the best one I had ever met. The private bungalow is also luxurious. I may not come back Boracay since it’s still not that improving (the roads and condition around) and has become too touristy. But I highly recommend Mandala spa 💖💖💖 grateful for finding it
