Close to the town of Candidasa on Bali’s east coast, Alila Manggis is right on Buitan Beach. With a mountainous backdrop, the hotel is surrounded by spectacular scenery and is ideally located for discovering Bali’s marine life and nearby islands. Not your average Balinese tourist town, Candidasa and its locals follow a very traditional lifestyle by cultivating rice, fishing, basket weaving and salt making. You can take a day tour to interesting sites like a traditional Bali Aga village, Mount Agung – the ‘Mother Temple of Bali’, Besakih – and the water palaces of Tirta Gangga and Ujung.
Set in the tropical Pandan Forest and facing the ocean, Spa Alila offers a breath-taking experience – and that’s before your treatment even starts. Whether you’re looking for a tension-relieving massage or an invigorating body scrub, any of the treatments here will leave you feeling restored and revived. For something traditional, why not book the Shirodhara treatment? This Indian therapy deeply relaxes the nervous system, lowers metabolism and induces mood stability.
With a keen commitment to the environment and social responsibility, Alila Manggis has introduced all sorts of sustainable measure and been awarded the EarthCheck Gold certification. The resort adheres to a zero-waste policy, and runs a coral reef conservation programme in partnership with a local diving company. Plus, the hotel trains and employs local villagers through its Greenbank initiative – a recycling project which aims to help the community become more responsible in recycling and waste management, to create a litter-free future.
Local and international dishes are on offer at Seasalt, including both mains and platters to share. Make sure you try the signature dish, Balinese Megibungg, which gives the perfect taste of local cuisine.
Follow the sound of the waves and you’ll find Ocean Bar, as this place is nestled right by the sea. This cosy al fresco lounge and bar has an extensive range of drinks, plus a selection of light bites.
Designed specifically for couples, this extraordinary experience gives you the chance to enjoy a romantic evening or celebrate a special occasion.
With three room options on offer at Alila Manggis, the choice is simple. The ground floor Superior Rooms offer light and bright spaces with direct access to the gardens, and are just a short stroll from the beach. Or opt for a Deluxe Room on the upper floor to enjoy views over the coconut groves and the sea beyond. Looking for a bit more space? Opt for an open-plan Seaside Suite, where the large balcony has sweeping ocean views.
