If the Philippines isn’t already on your destination radar for 2017 it certainly should be. Infamous for their hospitality and generosity, the people of the Philippines are notoriously proud of their country, and for good reason. As a nation comprised entirely of islands it’s no surprise that Philippines is hailed for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and Palawan Island was recently ranked as the second-best island on the planet, second only to its smaller sister island, Boracay. Although Boracay has exploded into the vacation limelight in recent years, in some circles it has been on the map for quite some time, thanks in no small part to Mandala Spa and Resort Villas.
Mandala Spa has been blazing the trail as the nation’s quintessential holistic wellness provider for over fifteen years, nestled in a lush tropical estate surrounded by the natural beauty of Boracay Island. With a list of services and packages that would be better described as a short story than a menu, it’s clear why Mandala is considered the country’s pioneer in holistic wellness. Mandala Spa is internationally renowned for their eco-conscious treatments and constant drive to excel which is why they continue to be recognized on the global stage, amassing over 30 international spa and resort awards in just over a decade. This year alone Mandala was recognized as the Philippines Leading Resort and Philippines Leading Spa Resort by the World Travel Awards. They also received two notable mentions at the Asia Spa Awards for Philippines Best Wellness Retreat and Asia’s Best Wellness Retreat.
