We aim to excel in design, architecture, food and service – with an emphasis on equality, not subservience. We balance head with heart, and brains with a playful spirit. We tread with a light foot and we challenge the status quo. We go beyond to surprise and delight everyone we touch.Connect with us
We aspire to creative excellence in everything we do, and we nurture this in everyone we work with.
At Mandala, we are crafting a new way of living, being, playing, disconnecting and reconnecting – through the integrity of our people and the creativity we nurture in them; through the design-driven, taste-making places we create; and through our intention to do business with purpose, integrity, and wholehearted respect for this planet we call home.
It’s our mission to redefine luxury hotels, resorts, developments and membership clubs in the most beautiful places on earth, with absolute respect for purpose and place. We do this with creative excellence, phenomenal design, and a sustainable outlook.
What gives us our competitive advantage is our team. We know that first and foremost, our people need to love what we do – only then can our patrons and investors love our company. At every layer of our organisation, we understand and are aligned with Mandala’s vision and mission.
Every member of our team has room to grow; there’s no ceiling on what they can do. We nurture their talent, and we grow the leaders of the future in our expanding Group.
We are a collective of entrepreneurial visionaries, and it’s been that way since Day 1. We embrace and embody responsibility, accountability and ownership at every level of our organisation. We celebrate success, and we believe in failing small, failing often, and learning always.
We are tastemakers, dreaming big and making our ideas a reality. We believe creativity can come from anyone, anywhere at any time. That’s why we foster an open culture at Mandala.
We collaborate, partner and nurture world-class creative minds in design, architecture, and the culinary field, embracing their talent to deliver commercial successful investment properties, resorts, villas, ski chalets, restaurants and membership clubs in Bali, Nusa Lembongan, Niseko and Singapore.
We respect the planet we call home, knowing that we ourselves are mere tenants of this earth. We are deeply proud of our attention to sustainable and responsible business wherever we venture – whether that’s Bali, Niseko or beyond; and whether that’s an investment property or a clifftop beach club.
It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s the only way to go. Our people can be proud of everything we do, our environment endures no unnecessary harm, and this translates commercially to a compelling proposition throughout our customer touchpoints.
We go beyond what’s required. We pay attention to details others overlook and embed industry-leading operational standards.
Knowing that a reputation can be lost in an instant – far quicker than it’s earned – we have a zero-tolerance policy in all aspects of our business, including compliance and corporate behaviour.
