Alila Manggis Hotel
Prefer to relish the peace and tranquility in a setting of opulent coconut groves? Go to the unspoilt east coast of Bali and stay away from the crowds at Alila Manggis Hotel. Nestled between the sea and the majestic Mount Agung (Bali’s most sacred mountain), Alila Manggis is truly one of Bali’s best-kept secrets.
Unassuming and intangible, Alila Manggis Hotel offers a unique opportunity to experience Bali’s natural treasures. Furthermore, snorkeling and diving junkies are at the right place here.
The design, by renowned hotel architect Kerry Hill, feels just right, with a pleasing mix of the traditional and the modern, without trying too hard in either direction.
Alila Manggis Hotel, where relaxation and nature come together, has 55 rooms set in four two-storey buildings grouped around a central swimming pool. All bright designed rooms are facing the ocean, and are divided into Superiors, Deluxes and Suites. Lower-level rooms have private terraces, while second-story rooms have balconies outfitted with day beds, and the two suites (in the building closest to the ocean) are surrounded by balconies, suitable for dining or sunning.
Want to improve your cooking skills? Alila Manggis Hotel boasts an award-winning cookery school. The Seasalt restaurant, housed in a traditional Balinese pavilion, serves a contemporary menu and a range of Indonesian and Balinese favorites.
If peace is still difficult to find, spend some time at the Spa Alila.
