Mandala Spa & Resort Villas

Mandala Spa and Resort Villas

The holistic approach that advocates a change in lifestyle is Mandala’s selling point. Boracay’s considerable charms are only incidental, secondary attractions here, and while the ambience and the one-of-a-kind treatments are enough to make the spa a destination in itself, what keeps guests coming back is the staff’s approach. More than providing service, they aim to create a memory – an unforgettable experience of peace…And so, while there was still time, I let go and left myself in the nurturing, more than capable hands of Mandala Spa.

What is a Mandala?
‘Mandala’ is the Sanskrit word for “circle” or “whole”, symbolizing the holistic nature of all existence. ‘Mandala’ means “the space that contains the essence,” which signifies that when at Mandala Spa & Resort Villas, you become one with yourself, one with nature, and one with the universe, through holistic spa treatments and unique lifestyle experiences designed to deliver you to bliss.

The Philosophy
Mandala Spa & Resort Villas reflects the philosophy and lifestyles of its founders, Karen Villarica Neff and the late Dieter Schrottmann, the same team that conceptualized the Kon-Tiki Floating Bar in 1985. Both believe that life is to be enjoyed and not endured.

It is a love affair with the spirit of Boracay that made this project possible. Being both long time residents of Boracay, Karen and Dieter felt that it was of importance to preserve a piece of the serenity and peace that the island became known for in the ‘early’ years.
