Mandala Villas and Spa

Posh but affordable spa resort in a serene garden setting

Mandala Spa Villas

With only 12 villas in a large and peaceful property about 10 minutes by foot from the beach, the Mandala Villas and Spa is the perfect choice for those who want to be pampered. Each villa is quite large and filled with deluxe amenities, and guests are entitled to a free massage each day included in the modest room rates.

The beach is close enough to be convenient, as is the commercial area of Boat Station 2 and D’Mall, but this resort is mostly about relaxation and pampering. As long as you don’t insist on being right on the sand, the Mandala Villas and Spa offers more than the 5-star resorts on Boracay at about half the price. Guest reviews are stellar so this one gets a lot of repeat guests and books up before many others.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Mandala Villas and Spa are some of the best on Boracay Island, with almost all of them a solid 5 stars. The main reason for this seems to be that it attracts a very specific spa crowd, and they deliver on their promise wonderfully. Guests love the large villas and the great service, not to mention the free daily massage and yoga class.

Add in little things like free airport transfer and free mangoes for guests, and you have a hotel that obviously cares deeply about its guests. It’s about a 10-minute walk from the beach and there aren’t many non-spa facilities, so this is for a special crowd. Room rates are very reasonable considering the luxury and spa treatment included.
