In the southern portion of the Boracay can be found Mandala Boracay Villas & Spa, a 5-star spa in a tropical haven. The spa resort is near the Boat Station 3 and is on a hilltop just right over Angol. The place is considered as among the best and well-known spa destinations across Asia. Not only is Mandala offering luxury spa therapies. It is also equally popular for its deluxe hotel offerings.
Mandala Spa treatments and basic services have been awarded the sought-after SpaAsia Crystal Award for 2004. It is very evident that the place is functioning to provide a cozy and relaxing venue where the body, the mind and even the soul can take a breather. Thus, the term 'sanctuary for the body and the soul' is just appropriate for Mandala.
Garden Villa Accommodations
Accommodations-wise, Mandala Boracay Spa and Resort is offering 12 carefully and strategically crafted resort villas. The resort villas set modern standards for current holiday accommodations. In other words, Mandala is simply world class. As a sanctuary, it is important that each of the units is made finely and exquisitely. To complete the overall feel, there are teak flooring, bamboo cladding, vaulted wooden ceilings, Italian bath fixtures and cogon roofing, which all work together to give character. Interiors are noted to have glass walls, which facilitate seamless flow between tropical outdoors and warm wooden finish.
Amenities are standard and are of highest quality. All rooms are equipped with air conditioners for ideal temperature control. Cable television sets and audio and digital video players are also provided. The bathrooms are brim with state-of-the-art modernity, as mentioned, furnished by fine Italian fixtures from B&B Italia designer Antonio Citterio. Hot and cold running water is provided, as well as natural shampoos, conditioners and bath soaps to complete that cleaning and relaxing feeling. Also provided are healing herbs and essential oils for personal massage.
Special services can never be set aside and overlooked. There are four private day spa villas that offer sanctuary and refuge for the tired and stressed bodies. The interiors of the spa villas are equally exquisite as those of the resort villas, with fixtures and facilities that make up for a better spa experience. Watsu and yin yang pavilions are also provided for watsu and yin yang massage and relaxation services and activities.
