Bali’s Best Kept Secret the Luxury Alila Manggis Hotel & Resort
Alila Manggis is one of Bali’s best-kept secrets, the 53-room luxury hotel 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.
The name Alila comes from Sanskrit meaning ‘surprise’ which suitably describes the refreshing character of Alila properties and the reaction of guests upon arrival and throughout their stay with the resorts.
Alila Manggis combines contemporary furniture with traditional Balinese design to form an exemplary symbiosis. This resort demonstrates creative function, elegant luxury and pure 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 four two-storey buildings are built around a palm-fringed pool which looks onto the ocean.
Alila Manggis is also famed for its East Balinese Cooking School specialising in wonderful cuisine from the region and its wondrous dive sites off Manggis, in East Bali.
Facilities include a swimming pool designed as an inverted pyramid, the Seasalt restaurant serving international and Indonesian cuisine, cookery school, an award-winning eco-spa and an organic fruit and vegetable garden.
Alila Manggis has also been recognised for its commitment to responsible tourism and receiving the coveted ASEAN Green Hotel Award in 2010. The award honours the environmental efforts of hotels from the ten ASEAN member countries including Bali and Indonesia.
