THE TREETMENT PROJECT MISSION
The "The TREEtment Project" is a part of Mandala Spa's Green initiative. We plant a tree for every spa treatment you take or every room night you book.
Founded in September 2009, The Treetment Project answers the global call for responsible hospitality business. We are taking environmental action while indulging guests in their need for wellness. By doing so we hope to inspire people to care for the planet as much as they care for themselves. So far we have planted more than 10,000 trees and counting.
