    The Spa Place to go in Boracay

    by

    We purchased a package deal that they'd in conjunction with the current low season (June-Oct 07). It includes 2 nights resort villa stay, daily breakfast (vegetarian restaurant), 1 romantic dinner for 2, daily yoga session, signature massage for 2 & VIP pick-up. This package is not found in their website, but in affiliation with a local tour agency. I first got to know the island & then Mandala & then I'm hooked.

    Their spa menu is in USD, but it does seem reasonable compared to other renowned spa resort elsewhere. Non-resident guests can come for their spa too.

    Recommended for those who prefers a peaceful resort villa, yet within walking distance (5mins) from the famous White Beach.

    Unique Quality: 'Serenity & tranquility' is in the tag line.

    All pictures at their website are exactly what you see at their resort. 12 private resort villas. Only 15years & above are welcomed. A Hi-Fi stereo with spa music CD is switched on when you open the door to your villa. No cable TV. TV, DVD players & a selection of DVDs are available upon request. Organic-based toiletries. Vegetarian restaurant. Get the drift?

    The villa is pretty spacious. King-sized bed is big enough for 4. Bathroom has bathtub & an outdoor shower. Verandah is huge too, with a super comfy lazy chair.

    TIP #1: be sure to ask for a partial sea view villa upon booking.
    TIP #2: double-check to lock the many doors/windows before sleeping

    Directions: Return VIP pick up from the Caticlan/Katibo airport is included. So no worries here!

an early booking is advised.

Vegans never go hungry

by yellowbell about Mandala Spa

We didn't go to the spa to get a massage but to try the restaurant but my carnivore sweetie was disappointed with his pasta with tomato and herb sauce (scant sauce) and Greek salad and me with my phad thai (can barely taste the peanuts). Apparently, vegans can also go hungry!

But the ambiance makes up for it as we were the only ones in the small restaurant (2/F). We got a seat in the azotea where large capiz windows open up to the fireflies that lit up the big trees and give a view of distant islands and sunset. All of the 10 or so tables are maybe meant for honeymooners (2 seaters).

I love the architecture (lush foliage surrounding the stone-paved entrance to the villas, gauzy white curtains dropping from the ceiling, and soft lights, all add to the tropical feel of the villas).

The spa is a few meters away from the entrance so you need to walk to the gate to hail a not-readily available trike.

Boracay

"Best Beach"

Boracay is an island less than 2hrs. by plane from Manila (capital of the Philippines). The island has very fine white sand that will not burn you when you walk barefeet and the water is very calm. There are three stations in the island, make sure to stay in one of the resorts in station 1, station 2 is ok but definitely try to avoid station 3.

"Resorts and Dining and True Food"

There are numerous resorts in station 1 accommodations range from $100USD and up. I would recommend Pearl of Pacific, Waling Waling and Fridays as great places to stay at. Robinson's Beach House also deserves special mention. The Mandala Spa is also a great place to stop by for a massage specially after a couple of days of activities in the island. In terms of dining there are plenty of affordable places to eat at throughout the island, but if you are looking for something thats a little sophisticated Aria and Cafe del Sol are two places you may want to visit. However, if you ask me my where my favorite place to eat and drink at is I'd have to go with True Food. The place has a Goa feel to it, dishes to try are Rogan Josh, Chan ki Dal, Maseha Tare Ko, Mothabal, Tandoori Cicken and vegetable Samosa.

"Monsoon"

As far as the best time of the year to visit Boracay I'd say from Feb. til the end May after that the rainy season begins will go on until maybe the end of Sept. or early Oct. If you are into nightlife the try coming during the week of Palm and Easter Sunday, alot of Dj's and clubs go the island and stage events. Bruno from Cafe del Mar held sunset sessions there before at Hey Jude, Slinky, Cream, Hed Kandi, Dj Colette and Kaskade are some of the clubs and Dj's that have held events there in the past

101 Things To Do in Boracay

by rachelleiris

There are 101 things to do in boracay..
But I highly recommend the following three things:

1. to forget
2. to remember
3. to do nothing

"TO FORGET"

Call it coincidence.. but almost everytime I go to bora (that’s how most Filipinos call it), something is meant to be healed and forgotten – whether be it the affairs of the heart (details of which, I kinda refuse to divulge here, hehe), or some physical stress that I want to shed-off..

... or some awful things that should be swept away by the beautiful turquoise waters of bora. And more often than not, I come back to manila feeling light as a feather! Even forgetting everything i came to bora for.

"TO REMEMBER"

Call me mushy.. but days or even weeks after I come back from bora, I could still imagine the most beautiful sunsets God has ever created, the refreshing fruit shakes from Jonas, the yummy grilled food from Smoke as well as from the infinite choices of restaurants in D’mall, the invigorating yoga sessions in Mandala Spa, the most relaxing and exfoliating massage by the beach...

... and of course, the wine and cheese party we had at one of the island coves we chanced upon while paraw sailing… Well, that is if I’m sober enough to remember!

"TO DO NOTHING"

True that you should have a “to do” list, so no time is wasted… Of course you can’t miss out on the gazillion things that suit your fancy… You can choose from banana boating, paraw sailing, kite boarding, dragon boat rowing, island hopping, all-night partying, endless sleeping, leisure reading, binge eating, lazing around... and many other things you've never tried before but have always wanted to try... among other things... =)

But the best thing to do is to do nothing!!! I must admit that I could be a freakin’ control freak sometimes…. But when in bora, I tried to control my being a control freak (if that’s not an oxymoron) by waking up each day without having any plans at all!!! Try it.. and you’ll know what I mean!

So the next time you go to bora, just let your hair down… forget… remember… and do nothing!

And as my bora friends would always say… remember... "what happens in boracay.. never happened!"
