Alila Manggis Bali
Alila Manggis is an exemplary symbiosis of contemporary and traditional Balinese design. This resort demonstrates creative function and elegant luxury with a strong emphasis on well-being. World-renowned architectural firm Kerry Hill's interplay of light, water, plants and geometry result in details that never fail to excite the eye. The idyllic four two-storey buildings are oriented around a palm-fringed pool looking directly onto the ocean.
Via the new Professor Ida Bagus Mantra road, Alila Manggis is just 1 hour and 15 minutes drive from the international airport.
One of Bali's best kept secrets, Alila Manggis is a secluded, stylish seaside resort in Manggis, East Bali. Set amidst lush coconut groves, the resort nestles between the sea and the majestic Mount Agung, Bali's most sacred mountain.
Alila Manggis is situated within the regency of Karangasem, close to the village of Candidasa, providing 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 sets a magical scene. It is also the gateway to the dive islands of the East Coast, the mother temple of Besakih and the great water palaces and kingdoms of East Bali.
Restaurants and Bars
At Alila Manggis, food is a way of life. The resort harvests from the rich surrounding lands. You taste the goodness of the freshest produce and learn to appreciate a new taste for life.
Inspired by a neighbouring organic salt farm, Seasalt Restaurant is set in a traditional Balinese pavilion on a lotus pond. Serving both a contemporary menu and a range of Indonesian and Balinese favourites, Seasalt is also an integral part of the Alila Manggis Cooking School. Elegant and relaxed, the restaurant looks out on to the ocean and the resort's beautifully landscaped grounds. Guests can also enjoy poolside and garden dining. Set beneath the tranquil coconut grove, the pool and extensive lawns are just a step away from the beach.
Organic Garden Experience
Head to the organic garden nearby â€“ a 30-minute cycle ride or a 10-minute car ride â€“ and enjoy a meal of fresh garden produce. The gardener will take you through the vegetation in the garden and also introduce you to some of the different methods of irrigation and gardening used. At the outdoor dining Ocean Bale, the Chef will design a menu based on your personal preferences to enjoy at this location, or you can order from the Seasalt Menu. A recommended dish is the Bebek Betutu to share, a slow-cooked local duck in banana leaf specialty.
