The resort, designed by architect Michael Graves, features a water theme in its coral and teal facade and hand-painted murals depicting the Florida landscape. Fountains are scattered throughout the grounds, including one on the causeway between the Swan and Dolphin, which cascades through five seashells into a 54-foot tall clamshell.
Guest rooms and suites are housed in separate Dolphin and Swan wings, with statues of swans and dolphins on top of each and a clamshell fountain on top of the Swan wing. There are plenty of activities right at the resort for kids and grown-ups, with a camp for children, meals with the Disney characters, treatments at the Mandara Spa, and five swimming pools.
SERVICES & CLASSES
The design and treatment menu of the Mandara Spa are Balinese-inspired, with architectural touches such as trimmings hand-carved in Bali and services incorporating Balinese ingredients and rituals. A 25-foot tall Meru sculpture centerpiece resembling a pagoda dominates the meditation garden, where guests can sip tea and choose from a range of quick mini-treatments or relax in a traditional Balinese bale, a thatched-roof open pavilion.
There are 12 treatment rooms, including two couple's suites, in the 10,500-square-foot spa and other amenities such as steam rooms in the men's and women's locker rooms and a hair and nail salon.
Services include signature Mandara massages, body treatments, facials, hair care, hand and foot treatments, waxing, makeup application and lessons, and eyelash applications. Most treatments incorporate Elemis and La Therapie products, and one of the spa's special offerings is the Mandara Hot Stone Therapy, which features batu stones bathed in warm water and scented with spicy Eastern aromas.
