TESTIMONIALS

"I am a part of all people that I have met."

Jove Schrottmann

from Germany , graduated in 2010

A Boracay resident after high school back in 2006, Jove first joined the Mandala Spa & Villas family by trying his hand at all aspects of the business from front office agent to guest relations officer and as restaurant service staff. Inspired by his father’s vision and legacy, he ventured out into the world by earning not one, but two degrees - finishing with a Bachelor‘s Degree in International Tourism and Events Management at IMI.

Armed with invaluable lessons from the international front, he returned with the greatest lesson of all, which is that we all share the same path. As we learn from every encounter, we must give something of ourselves to each other. As Resort Manager since March 2011, he hopes to share the wellness institution’s soulful healing touch, while inspiring others to live a better life.
