East Bali and the area around us have many secrets just waiting to be unravelled during your stay with us. Hathmawan and Budi are two interesting personalities who craft your Alila Experiences and introduce the secrets of East Bali.
Cooking in The Organic Garden - 09.30am to 02.00pm
Gain a new sense of taste as you rediscover the wholesome, nurturing flavours of unprocessed ingredients. Grow your awareness of sustainable farming which is sure to stimulate your appetite for a healthier, balanced lifestyle. After breakfast, head to our organic garden just 10 minutes from the hotel, hidden below the foothills of Mount Agung overlooking the sea. Our gardeners will reveal the agricultural practices of Balinese farmers. Then, armed with boots and a rice hat, join in the action in the garden, collecting seasonal ingredients, scaring the birds or simply waiting for the rice to grow from the shelter of a “kubukubu” – a small hut built in the rice fields. Begin your organic cooking lesson with tastings from the garden followed by the Balinese lunch that you have cooked in a traditional Balinese pavilion.
Half day : USD 75 ++
Minimum 2 persons. Single Supplement applies.
Deep Water Fishing
Enjoy the thrill of the catch! Jump aboard our traditional jukung and head out to the deep water fishing area around the Nusa Penida Strait – a playground for angling small tuna fish, red snappers, jackfish and many other deep water creatures. If you prefer bottom fishing, snappers, blue coral fish and scribbled filefish are teeming under the sea. You can also bring along snorkelling gear to enjoy some deep sea swimming.
Four hours | USD 50
Mount Agung Trek
For the truly adventurous, consider a challenging 8-hour climb up the slopes of Mount Agung - reaching the top just in time forthe spectacular sunrise. Depart from the hotel at 1.00am to ensure you reach the top by 7.00am. Two days notice is required. Note: This trek is recommended for those who are in good physical condition and are seeking a challenge. You must also possess suitable attire – hiking boots (or good trainers and a back pack) and warm clothing as it is rather chilly once you get close to the summit. (Advanced level trek)
2 hour car transfer return | 7 hours trek | USD 100
