Mandali is situated in a quiet environment, yet it is still easily reachable by plane, train and car. It is a 1 hour and 10 minutes drive from Malpensa, Milano International Airport. It is also reachable by trains and shuttle buses from the main cities of Milano, Torino and from the Swiss border.

The retreat center is facilitated with a restaurant overlooking Lake Orta, a Body Care Center with sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and indoor heated swimming pool, and 3 group rooms designed for yoga and meditation sessions. The center has 8 different types of guest rooms and hermitages.

Twin room (garden/village view)

Share a twin room with a friend. Two single beds, with view and quiet verandah looking onto the garden, and Temple. One can walk out the back door and walk slowly along the path that leads directly to the kitchen, or make a 90 degree turn to go back to your retreat.

Premium twin room

Enjoy. Your back door will lead you to the village, for refreshment, and a little further on to the retreat activity rooms. But your front door will lead you to wide open spaces, an inviting chair, and delicious solitude.

Hermitage

The hermitages are built with a small kitchen and has table with chairs to share a coffee or a snack with friends. They are built on two levels, so two can sleep upstairs, and one down. There is a possibility of a fourth downstairs bed if you are traveling with a fourth friend you would like to share with. The hermitages are like small apartments.

On arrival, you will be given a schedule of events from which you can choose to participate, as well as information about special walks and points of interest.

Set 850 meters above sea level, overlooking lago d’ Orta in Italy, the site faces southeast, enjoying the morning sun rising over the Mottarone mountain range across the lake. The classic feng shui dream of enjoying the inspiration of the sun, lake and valley in front of you, whilst being supported and protected by the buildings, trees and gardens behind is a functioning reality at Mandali.

If one decides to go off of the retreat centre, to feel into the local villages and cuisine, there is much to take in and to taste.

Lake Orta - Lago d'Orta di San Giulio

Enclosed by wooded mountainside and encircled by shores rich in history and art, Lake Orta is actually one of the most evocative areas in Italy. The most famous place in the whole area is Orta San Giulio, a small charming medieval town, considered to be one of the most beautiful in the whole of Italy. Built on the slopes of the ridge overhead, Sacro Monte and its twenty chapels tell the life story of Saint Francis of Assisi; a gem of architecture, culture and spirituality, it has been declared a Unesco heritage site.

The Island of San Giulio with its splendid Romanesque basilica and the monastery of the Benedictine order of nuns lies in the middle of the lake, directly off the shore of Orta San Guillo. One can take a boat to the small island and walk its quiet streets. There are no cars on the island.

Quarna Sopra and Casa Calderara

The village nearest Mandali is Quarna Sopra, famous for making Saxophones. They like to be thought of as the village of Music and a walk to the village and its treasures is well worth while. Of particular interest is Casa Calderara, which houses a precious collection of Contemporary Art and the beautiful Franciscan convent dating back to the 1600s, built on Monte Mesma.

Pella, Ameno and Vacciago

The romantic little town Pella is on the other side of the lake, dominated by the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sasso, built on the rocky granite promontory sitting high over the lake. Ameno and Vacciago have been renowned tourist destinations since the 1800s; their numerous stately mansions and noble villas are a characteristic feature and may be visted on the occasion of the annual exhibition "Studi Aperti".

Lake Maggiore

Just a few kilometres further on, you can visit Lake Maggiore, an area rich in history and artistic achievements. It includes the noble and beautiful islands Isole Borromee, sumptious Stresa and magnificient villas with their gardens.

Mottarone and Monte Rosa massif

Mottarone rises up between the two lakes; the view from the top is of incomparable beauty as it stretches across the Maritime Alps and Monte Rosa, and spans the territory incorporating the seven lakes. For mountain lovers, there are several famous destinations, all easily reached: Val Formazza and the Toce Waterfalls, Val Grande and Val d'Ossola, Premia Hot Springs and many nature walks.

The Monte Rosa massif, which can be accessed from Alagna in nearby Valsesia, offers exquisite destinations with snow capped peaks and hair-raising climbs on the eastern face of Punta Dufour, the second-highest peak in Europe.

The restaurant overlooks Lake Orta. You have the option of eating inside or out on the open terrace. There are spaces to eat on your own, enjoying the satisfying food and incredible views, and there are communal tables where you can make new friends and share your experiences. The menu is carefully designed by our vegetarian chef, Kes Lilani, and prepared together with Viramo, our very own Italian food wizard.

Mandali's Food Philosophy

Colourful, delicious, natural foods are carefully prepared to help you feel healthy while staying at Mandali. The team carefully selects foods for their healing qualities and some are grown in private gardens. Everyday there are three meals available for all the guests, made with love. Each meal is served in a buffet style. Upon request, Mandali can provide balanced alternative menus such as vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. Filtered water, healthy herbal teas and fresh fruit are available, all day, every day.

Enjoy your own rhythm and choose what suits you best. Relax in your room, take a forest walk, enjoy the sauna, steam room, jacuzzi or take a swim in the heated indoor swimming pool.

Body Care Center Treatments

There are various types of massages available at Mandali’s Body Care Center, such as Lomi Lomi (Traditional Hawaiian), Deep Tissue massage, Cranial Sacral and Intuitive Bodywork.

Massage sessions can be booked online along with your retreat, or after your arrival. Full information on the massage type and therapist of your choice can be obtained at the reception. A good massage can feel wonderful, help integrate all level of experience, and liberates our body from the tightness and holdings that keep pulling us backward.

    A piece of heaven

    CONS No me gustó: There's nothing to be said really. I loved every minute of my stay and just want to go back.

    PROS Me gustó: Staying at the Mandali Retreat Center was a revelation. This having been my first ever yoga retreat, it has set the benchmark for future retreats very, very high. Or I simply only ever come back here, how about that?! Mandali is simply stunning. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, the vegetarian food is outstanding and so is the staff, from chef, cleaning personell, administrative workers and mentors - everyone is full of good vibes and energy. On site facilities are spotlessly clean and luxurious. To sum it up and as my title says, it's a piece of heaven on earth.

    Respuesta del organizador: Dearest Ruth, Thank you very much for your lovely words! We're glad to read that you had such a positive experience in Mandali and we hope to see you soon. Warmly, Mandali team

    Reseña de Jayne Fleming de Estados Unidos

    Not a Retreat

    CONS No me gustó: We did the 3-day retreat. This was not a retreat. It was a hotel with yoga classes. There was no organized program. The welcome orientation was canceled. The classes were held in a small room in the main building rather than the yoga center pictured on the website. There was another group of about 25 students participating in a 30-day certification program and Mandali devoted all of their resources, programs and spaces to them. If you do a 3-day retreat don't expect an actual program. What you get is a cramped room and open yoga clssses with strangers.

    PROS Me gustó: The panoramic view is stunning.

    Respuesta del organizador: Very puzzled with this feedback. There is always a Welcome meeting at 15:30 on the day of arrival. There each participant is given the daily schedule of two meditations, two yoga classes and an Open Session. This is also on display at reception. We most definitely are not a hotel and have facilities to run three groups at any one time. Each group has it's own dedicated Teachers and support team. The Mandali Experience an open room has a capacity to comfortably support 16 people doing yoga with balcony doors opening onto an outdoor terrace. Our customer feedback has been consistently high so we are definitely surprised to read this.

    it's not about yoga

    CONS No me gustó: the attitude.. they claimed that this is not a "YOGA" retreat whereas it was written on bookyogaretreats.com. I booked thinking that I will do yoga and meditation, they merged with another group without giving the option to us, cancelled the 2 times a day 1,5 hour yoga sessions to 1 hour per day. you cant really do yoga in an hour. and one day they cancelled all. when we spoke up, i got an arrogant answer that i should be honored because they are giving me something better and this is an awakening experience, the place is not about yoga, this is part of mandali experience, not everything works in life as expected. Thanks sir for the life lesson however i already know that whereas they need to learn how to behave to the client. i booked a yoga retreat and i asked them to provide with yoga, such an unpleasant /disrespectful behavior from their side. Unfortunately, it is a poor management for such a lovely facility. Dont go there with expectation of yoga. This place is not about yoga as they repeatedly say..

    PROS Me gustó: the facility was beautiful, beautiful view..

    A Special Place

    CONS No me gustó: That I had to leave

    PROS Me gustó: From the moment I arrived till the day I left I was welcomed, supported and nurtured. Its a place to be understood without words, surrounded by love and the ultimate luxury of nature at its best with the lake and the mountains that cocoon you. The food is gorgeous! Ca'li and her team have such big hearts and I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. I found this place at the last min and it was a blessing and one I will be returning to before to much time passes. Till next time Mandali. Deepest gratitude and much love.

    Respuesta del organizador: Thank you for the lovely words. Nice to hear you had such a great time, and we would love to welcome you again in the future :). Warmly, Mandali
