Mandala Spa and Resort Villas, A World Class Honeymoon Paradise

[Advertorial] Your wedding photos will last you a memorable lifetime. It is key to choose a beautiful location with a nice ambience and gorgeous scenery for perfect photos. When we decided to go to Boracay, Philippines for our wedding shoot, we were excited to discover Mandala Spa and Resort Villas, a sanctuary of nature, relaxation and wellness that also made for a perfect honeymoon destination.

Insulated by forested greenery, fresh flowers and majestic trees, Mandala was a fascinating place for us to do our photo and video shoot at! Check out our wedding videos done by My Revery Films and Enrico Nepomuceno below, which features the beauty of Mandala.

My Favourites by Mandala

Roomy Resort Villas

The huge space that we have all to ourselves!
The huge bathroom which made it really easy to do my gown changes.

As we entered our villa, we were blown away by how spacious and beautiful the interior was! Knowing that we were getting married in 2 months time, Liza filled our room with honeymoon decor! The canopied bed and walkway were sprinkled with rose petals, and the entire tub was filled with beautiful hibiscus flowers! It was a very heartwarming and lovely surprise.

Apart from the beautiful interiors of teak, wood and pebble furnishing which gave a rich nature-like ambience, the villa is well-equipped with air-conditioning, a large comfortable bed, TV, a wine rack… It even comes with a private balcony area for you to lounge in, and a humongous bathroom fitted with a Jacuzzi tub and an outdoor rain shower! *faints*

The Award Winning Spa

Excited for our spa treatments!

Mandala’s award winning spa offers you a unique and rejuvenating experience. At their spa villas you get to enjoy a wide range of holistic baths and spa treatments. In addition, you can sign up for free yoga classes! With its welcoming aura and relaxing vibes, Mandala Spa and Resort Villas make a perfect spot for a wedding, honeymoon or anniversary celebration!

The spa villas at Mandala are huge and spacious, like the garden villas! During our stay, we pampered ourselves with the Mandala Signature Massage. Our therapists were very pleasant and professional. It was an incredible 90 minutes of pure relaxation. It started with a foot soak, an oil massage and ended off with a relaxing shower. I felt so refreshed from top to toe, it was the ideal way to end our hectic shoot schedule and trip in Boracay. Even if you are staying at another hotel / resort in Boracay, I would recommend you visit Mandala for their spa treatments! Check out their list of treatments here.

A Rejuvenating and Relaxing Experience 

Enveloped by nature and fresh air, Mandala Spa and Resort Villas is a place surrounded by peaceful serenity. Staying here at Mandala, there were few distractions and we really got to slow down our pace of life and enjoy each other’s company. The calm tranquility Mandala gave us invigorated us for the next leg of our trip as well as our relationship!

A Healthy & Organic Menu

Dining at the open-air garden lounge (by request)!

Onsite is Mandala’s Prana Restaurant, with an organic menu that encourages healthy eating. Set right in the heart of its grounds and nested in its lush greenery, it was a very unique and refreshing experience to dine at Mandala’s Prana Restaurant.

The al-fresco Prana Restaurant serves healthy “farm-to-table” gourmet cuisine.

They even grow their own spices and herbs in their garden, so you can be assured of freshness!

Mandala's very own herb and spice garden, where everything is grown organically.

Food is prepared on the spot, piping hot and served to you. You can request for room service as well, which is what we did several times! Best part is, the food is priced very reasonably.

Impeccable Service

We felt so welcomed during our stay at Mandala. Liza, the manager of Mandala personally came to welcome us, and throughout our entire shoot session was so very generous and accommodating to our needs. The staff at Mandala were also very kind and gentle when serving us. I fell deeply in love with the charming nature of Mandala and cannot wait to be back!

Thank you so much Liza, for being an amazing host to our stay and wedding shoot! The stay at Mandala Spa & Resort Villas was nothing short of amazing. Your resort is beautiful and we will definitely be back for our anniversary vacation!
