Mandala Spa & Villas

Boracay Island, Malay Aklan, Philippines

Just steps from turquoise waters and sandy beaches, this wellness resort and destination spa is a sanctuary for the body and soul. Committed to environmentally sound practices, the resort uses natural ingredients and products whenever possible. In the spa, therapists use Mandala's own line of entirely natural ingredients, prepared fresh for each treatment. Surrounded by lush vegetation and birdsong, guests receive these holistic treatments in therapeutic massage, Watsu, body wrap, scrub, bath, and beauty treatments. Yoga classes take place high on a hillside in an open-sided Yoga Shala. Accommodation options range from the 12 Resort Villas to a Pool Villa, which overlooks the South China Sea.
