The east of the island is a great place to stay in Bali. Things are quieter and more traditional here and there is a great chance to discover something of the real Balinese lifestyle and culture. Lines of local women carrying temple offerings on their heads are an almost daily sight in this part of Bali. Besakih Temple, majestic Mount Agung, intriguing water palaces and spectacular scenery are some of the delights of the East of Bali. Alila Manggis is one of the best value boutique resorts in Bali, and divers will love Siddhartha Bali Dive Resort & Spa.
