The perfect end to a hectic trip to India. Escape the crowds, noise and pollution for Goan blue skies. The Mandala exceeded my expectations, I felt so comfortable and relaxed it was hard to leave. A 5 minute walk to the beach which really was 5 minutes. Comfortable and cosy accommodation, amazing food and alternative yoga twice a day. Andrew... More

I was looking for relaxation and found it at the Mandala. Lovely staff, very helpful and hospitable and the breakfast were amazing.I tried one of the yoga classes which were in this incredible dome where you can see the sky and trees. Beautiful. I'll be returning.

I was staying in one of the tents. I really enjoyed it as it was a very special experience. If you are afraid of little frogs or mice coming into your room, you propably should not book the tent. But I was fine with that. The shared bathroom is outside so it was like showering under a palm tree. I... More

I can't recommend this place more highly! My boyfriend and I arrived in Goa, stayed one night at an overpriced, soulless guesthouse and then started looking for a place that worked for us. We checked out maybe a half-dozen guesthouses and then as soon as we came across Mandala - set back from the road and slightly hard to find... More

This was the first place I stayed after arriving in India in April. Staff were incredibly helpful and they arranged an airport pick up for me, as well as a taxi to Palolem at the end of my stay - no problem! I stayed in one of the nomadic villas: amazing room with an outside balcony space, large bathroom and... More

The Mandala is such a great place. The calm environment .. the suites are minimalistic and rustic yet classy and clean. The kitchen is simple and offers good food. The masala tea is just refreshing and may also be the best that i have ever had. Looking forward to see u guys this November.

The Mandala is located in a calm, quiet but still central area in Mandrem with a 5min walk to the beach and shopping street. During our stay we (me and my mom) lived a couple of nights in a eco hutt and a few in a villa. Both were simple, a little run down, spaces and clean. The interior in... More

Mandala complex is very relaxing - no pressure from anyone. Hidden away from the crowds yet just a few mins walk from beach and Mandrem Village.

Extremely disappointing experience, very relieved to leave after a couple of nights. There were so many issues, it's hard to list them all, but I will have a go. The bed was unbearable and consisted of not much more than a couple of pieces of plywood and a 1 inch sofa. The room was meant to contain either a mosquito... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mandala resort is a unique destination created by artists & designers from around the globe, where comfort meets nature in harmony and laid back atmosphere and serenity are a priority.The concept of the Mandala is to provide a serene and peaceful destination in lush Goan nature where inspiration is in abundance. It is a haven for the open minded traveller looking for something out of the ordinary.There are five double-storey "Nomadic mansions" which sleep up to four people and seven beautifully designed tents suitable for one or two, all of which have been created with attention to detail and a sense of originality.The emphasis is on integrating with the natural surroundings, leaving your worries at the gate and generally feeling at peace.The word Mandala means the unity of all things in harmony within a space, so whether one chooses to participate in yoga courses, kayak down the river, relax on the veranda enjoying the view, watch the numerous species of birds circling the lake or sampling our healthy menu in the Mandala Restaurant….As said in Hindi...Sub kuch milega! (everything is possible) ... more   less
