Premium Twin Room (Lake view)

Your back door will lead you to the practice rooms and village, whilst your front door will lead you to wide open spaces and lake views. This room is on the ground floor and does not come with a bathtub.

The Premium Twin room is a room which comes with a double bed by default but can also be booked by two people who wish to sleep in two separate single beds. To make sure you’ll have the two separate beds upon arrival don’t forget to send an email to info@mandali.org.

The Rooms

Mandali is made up of high-quality, cosy rooms that can accommodate up to 57 guests. We offer a wide range of accommodation to suit your budget and needs – from shared, dormitory-style rooms to premium single rooms overlooking the gardens or stunning Lago d’Orta, and a few larger hermitages with their own kitchenette.

Mandali was conceived according to Feng Shui’s cornerstones of harmony and balance. Each space is designed to make you feel comfortable and at home – whether you’re sipping a mug of ginger tea on the terrace or savouring a lovingly prepared vegetarian meal in the dining room.

At times you may want to mingle and chat with other guests, and at other times you may prefer moments of quiet and introspection. There is a space and a time for every mood at Mandali.

HERMITAGES (GARDEN VIEW)

For those who would like to enjoy some more space, our Hermitages will be the best option for you. The Hermitages are studios with a built-in kitchen, and a lounge area to share a cup of tea with others. They are built on two levels, with beds located upstairs, and downstairs.

SINGLE ROOM (GARDEN VIEW OR LAKE VIEW)

​​We understand that you may need to be alone on your journey, which is why most of our rooms are designed for single occupancy. Comfortable, refined, and tastefully decorated, every single room has an en suite bathroom and Queen-sized bed to help you sleep deeply and peacefully. You may book it for single-use or if you’re coming with a partner, you can share it as a couple. You can choose between a room with a private veranda overlooking the garden and Temple, or one that overlooks the stunning Lago d’Orta.

SHARED ROOM

The shared room is designed in a simple dormitory style with two sets of bunk beds. An en-suite bathroom is provided, and there are additional toilets and showers in the hallway.

The Mandali ACCOMMODATIONS

Mandali offers a range of sleeping options to suit your needs and budget.

Choose from shared rooms with bunk beds, single, twin, and premium rooms all with ensuite bathrooms and lake or garden views.

For something more indulgent, opt for a premium (single room) that comes with its own bathtub on your veranda or inside the room.

There are also two beautifully designed apartments (hermitages) built over two levels with self-contained kitchens, that sleep up to four people.

The Garden & Sustainable Ecosystem

To be in harmony with our environment is one of Mandali’s core values.

From the early days, a foundation was laid for a sustainably managed ecosystem. Eco-friendly materials were used for its construction, wood chips fire our heating system, and solar energy powers our kitchen and swimming pool. Any surplus power is shared with the main local grid, so it can be used by the local community. Sustainability also applies to our daily fresh vegetarian menu, which is sourced locally.

Garden

We hope our garden inspires you to live in harmony with nature as you take in the  graceful presence of flowers, bees, chestnut trees and our resident cats; Barolo, Bhumi and Shanti.

Scattered across the garden you will discover many peaceful places for you to walk, sit and ponder. We also have a sweet little pond, lovingly guarded by Ganesha.

Near the edge of the property, you’ll find a carefully crafted Zen labyrinth, a cosy fire pit, and on the outskirts, you’ll discover a centuries-old water well, towards the back gate. Beyond that, you’ll also see an ancient statue of Maria pointing her finger in the direction of Mandali’s centrepiece; our Temple. It was this gesture that confirmed to our founders that Mandali was indeed the perfect place to create the retreat centre they had envisioned. Although you can find icons and symbols from various religions, we do not belong to nor reject any philosophy of life in particular.

OUR HISTORY

Mandali started as a passion project on paper in 2013. Our founders, Wouter and Wildrik, had reaped the benefits of yoga and meditation during various retreats around the globe and wished that their experiences and learnings could be accessible to a broader group of people. They decided to create the Mandali Foundation.

Almost five years were spent in search of the right place with the right energy. When Wouter and Wildrik, visited the hills on which Mandali later was created, they intuitively knew that this was what they had been looking for all along. This was the place. This was the time. They were meant to be here, on this hilltop, with this magnificent view, with its clean air, water, and soil.
