In Bali’s rugged East, the steep rise from coast to mountain manifests in some of the island’s most breathtaking scenery. It is against this backdrop that Alila Manggis unfolds, offering a serene seaside retreat situated in the foothills of Mount Agung.
Rooms and suites are each set at 45° to the beach for clear ocean views.
Housed in two-story thatched pavilions inspired by the Wantilan, or village meeting hall, Alila Manggis’s rooms and suites are contemporary interpretations of traditional Balinese architecture. All accommodations face the ocean with clear views across the straits to Nusa Penida.
Straddling Sea and Slope
Alila Manggis serves as a gateway to both East Bali’s marine splendors and spectacular Mount Agung.
Startlingly clear water, beautiful corals, and diverse marine life are among the many reasons East Bali is considered a diver’s heaven. The region is also home to Mount Agung, the island’s highest mountain, and its spectacular terraced hillsides.
Explore some of Bali’s most sacred sites, including the iconic Lempuyang Temple, which is home to the “gates of heaven.”
Marvel over Besakih Temple (Pura Besakih), a vast complex of more than 20 separate temples dramatically set on the slopes of Mount Agung. Just near the resort, the village of Tenganan is renowned for its double-ikat or ”Gringsing” woven cloth.
