In just ten years, Mandala Spas and Villas has grown from a four-villa Day Spa into an award-winning Wellness Resort and Destination Spa. The Spa aims to pamper guests with healthy lifestyle options while keeping in mind the importance of respecting the environment (The resort plants a tree for every night of a guest's stay). Their motto is "Be kind to each other, be kind to the environment and honor yourself."
The Spa offers three kinds of villas, two for overnight guests and one for those indulging in the day spa. All villa guests enjoy a daily choice between one Mandala Spa Qi massage or one floral bath, a guided Yoga class for two, and 15% discount on all spa services. Each Villa is equipped with iPod docks, complimentary Wi-Fi, and LCD internet TV and a movie library. Also included in the villa rates are VIP transfers to and from Caticlan, private check in, breakfast for two and a personalized mini bar. Guests are also provided with sarongs and beach bags to use on the island or to take home as a souvenir.
The Resort Villa has its own private entrance, teak floors and vaulted ceilings. The Pool Villa, which also has its own private entrance, is perched on a cliff and overlooks the South China Sea. It has a porch and an infinity pool and is known as one of the most exclusive places on the island. The Day Spa Villas are set in the most secluded part of the property, where individuals or couples can be pampered with treatments conducted by experienced therapists using the spa's exclusive line made with natural ingredients, all of them freshly prepared before each treatment.
The resort also features a Yoga Shala where guests can experience daily yoga classes and workshops and a Watsu pool, where guests can benefit from Watsu, a gentle therapy named after the combination of "water" and "shiatsu" that involves gentle rocking movements, stretches and nurturing support that allows for the release of physical and emotional blockages. The Spa also tailors treatments according to an individual's needs.
Because of the Spa's dedication to serenity, health and wellness, alcoholic drinks are limited to champagne and wine avialable only in the evening and children under the age of 15 are not allowed in the resort.
