Alila Manggis
Manggis, Bali

One of Bali's best kept secrets, Alila Manggis is a secluded hotel in East Bali.

Set amidst a coconut grove, the resort is nestled between the glistening sea and the majestic Mount Agung, Bali's most sacred mountain. All rooms and suites face the swimming pool and ocean, with clear views across the straits to the island of Nusa Penida. A contemporary interpretation of traditional Balinese architecture has been artfully combined with modern amenities by designer Kerry Hill, creating a relaxed environment in harmony with its natural surroundings. The rooms aren't large but are cleverly designed, and all are equipped with outdoor space and impressive views. This is a great hotel for those who value informal and boutique properties; public spaces are relaxing and open to the elements. The site is also home to an auspicious local temple, which is said to bless the area. 

Chef Santika dishes up gorgeous Modern Asian cuisine in the sea-facing Seasalt restaurant, housed in a traditional Balinese pavilion over a lotus pond. Famed for its Cooking School specialising in East Balinese cuisine, and its wondrous dive sites off Manggis, it provides the perfect opportunity to experience the best Bali has to offer. The resort is situated close to the village of Candi Dasa, and provides the perfect base from which to explore unspoiled east Bali, which is renowned for its spectacular beauty. The steep rise from coast to mountain creates magical scenery. Various walking tours are available from Alila Manggis, taking in sights such as Mount Agung, home to Bali's mother temple at Besakih, and the awe-inspiring terraced hillsides.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
