One of Bali's best kept secrets, Alila Manggis is a secluded, stylish seaside resort in Manggis, East Bali. Set amidst a coconut grove, the resort is nestled between the sea and the majestic Mount Agung, Bali's most sacred mountain.
All rooms and suites face the ocean with clear views across the straits to Nusa Penida. A contemporary interpretation of traditional Balinese architecture is artfully combined with modern amenities to create a relaxed environment in harmony with its natural surroundings.
Famed for its Cooking School specialising in East Balinese cuisine and its wondrous dive sites off Manggis, Alila Manggis is situated within the regency of Karangasem, close to the village of Candi Dasa, and provides the perfect base from which to explore unspoiled east Bali. This area of the island is renowned for its spectacular beauty, where the steep rise from coast to mountain creates magical scenery. Here the local people follow a traditional lifestyle, whether it is cultivating rice, farming, fishing, weaving baskets and the famous double ikat textiles or salt making.
