BORACAY ISLAND, PHILIPPINES, May 2018 – Mandala Spa & Resort Villas announces that they are forging on, having embraced change after dropping their billowy curtains last May 1, 2018.

In light of Boracay Island’s closure for rehabilitation, after 17 years of excellence, 14 years of award recognitions with over 40 international awards and accolades from loyal guests and travel & tourism professionals worldwide, the homegrown and much-loved Mandala Spa & Resort Villas temporarily closed its doors in Boracay Island for six months starting May 1, 2018, in preparation for the next big thing.

Hailed as The Philippines’ Best Wellness Spa & Retreat and the Philippines’ ‘Leading Spa Resort’, Mandala Spa & Resort Villas has consistently been in the Top 1% at TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards from 2013 to 2018 and has been awarded the prestigious Certificate of Excellence from 2014 to 2017, among other esteemed travel & tourism and spa & wellness industry recognitions.

After commemorating 17 years as an institution of excellence and innovation, and as the only Destination Spa & Resort on Boracay Island, the Philippine treasure and the country’s quintessential holistic wellness provider and eco-conscious elegant lifestyle brand, Mandala Spa & Resort Villas heeds the universe’s call to spread the love beyond Boracay Island’s shores, as it transitions gracefully and diversifies into other MANDALALIFE|STYLE platforms outside of Boracay Island, including Mandala Management Consultancy, Mandala Spa Academy, living spaces by Mandala Property Development, and Mandala Spa Franchising of the Mandala Spa and Resort Villas, Prana Restaurant, The Vessel Community Events Center, and The Cocoon by Mandala Spa.

CEO, owner and Managing Director Jove Schrottmann sets his sights on bigger things, not only for the company, but for the Mandala family, a devoted team that has been delivering the multi-awarded brand’s distinctive Mandala Soulful Connection, Quality of Touch, and Legendary Service since 2004.

“We’re up to something amazing! Mandala was never just a place. It has always been ‘the space that contains the essence’.”

The Sanskrit word for “circle”, Mandala symbolizes the holistic nature of all existence and represents a person’s spiritual evolutionary path. For its founders Karen Villarica-Neff and Dieter Schrottmann, Mandala Spa and Resort Villas is about making a difference in a person’s life, if only to plant a seed that will eventually lead to a better quality of life. It is an environment for personal growth, a place to remind us of the quality of life, a place where we can reflect and achieve spiritual rejuvenation.

As such, and in keeping with the essence of the brand, Mandala Spa & Resort Villas continues to carry out their corporate Mission “We care to inspire people towards self-discovery by sharing a unique lifestyle experience” to other shores.

That said, stay tuned for the Boracay branch’s reopening before the year ends, under the new management of their first franchisee, Sheridan Hotel, that purchased the proprerty located in Sitio Ambulong Manoc Manoc back in January 2018, and will operate Mandala Spa Boracay for the next two years.

Staying true to their organic nature, the Mandala Spa & Resort Villas lifestyle brand breaks free from its location and from the spa & resort mold to evolve into MANDALALIFE|STYLE. Catering to broader and more diversified niche markets, watch out for and expect amazing surprises in quantum proportions.
