Alila Manggis

One of Bali’s best-kept secrets, Alila Manggis is a secluded, effortlessly stylish beachfront resort in Manggis, East Bali, one of the less-visited beach resort areas in Bali.

Alila Manggis is set amidst a coconut grove, nestled between the sea and the backdrop of majestic Mount Agung, the most sacred mountain in Bali.

Alila Manggis combines contemporary style with traditional Balinese architecture and the four 2-storey buildings are built around a palm-fringed pool, which looks onto the ocean.

All 55 rooms and suites at Alila Manggis face the ocean with clear views across the straits to Nusa Penida.

For a real escape, Alila Manggis also has a luxury two-bedroom villa set up in the hills on the lower slopes of Mount Agung – offering a tranquil hideaway in Bali, ideal for those looking for an away from it all escape.

‘Alila’ means ‘surprise’, which suitably describes the refreshing character of the hotel and this fascinating region of Bali.

What's so Special?

Simple, elegant, stylish and relaxing, the Alila Manggis is a great place to chill out, as well as discover some of the highlights of eastern Bali (a great part of the island).

On our last visit to Alila we had a great walk up Mount Agung in time for sunrise, and a well deserved breakfast back at the hotel! Alila operates some great excursions around this interesting area of Bali.

The Alila Manggis has always enjoyed a great reputation for its’ dining also, and runs an excellent cooking school. Rick Stein was here to film during his journeys around Asia. Alila has its own organic fruit and vegetable garden from where many ingredients come.

Bear in mind

The beach has darker sand around this part of Bali. The beach isn’t the biggest highlight.

Elegant and relaxed, the restaurant looks out on to the ocean and the resort’s beautifully landscaped grounds.

Alila Manggis opened the first cooking school in Bali and has the only East Balinese specialty program on the island.

Half the course is spent cooking and the other discovering Bali from a culinary and cultural point of view.

From satays to sambals, to traditional sweets, your taste buds are put to the test. The school offers a half-day session, as well as two-day and five-day programs, turning up the heat in some very exotic locations.

Recent innovations are the "Cooking for Life" and "Temple Cooking" Culinary courses as well as varied half-day to five-day programs along with an extensive three-week course. All are made available upon request.



Swimming Pool

The swimming pool is a central feature of the resort and is designed as an unusual inverted pyramid.

This creates shallow waters around the edges and deep water in the middle.

Set in landscaped gardens under swaying coconut palms, it provides the perfect place to lay back and enjoy the resort's peaceful, sunny environment.
