After spending 3 nights in Kuta amongst the hustle and bustle of tourists, motorbikes and mayhem, it was a relief to be finally driving out of the city t the isolated and somewhat secluded area of East Bali.
The Alila Manggis is located near the town of Candidasa (pronounced Chandidasa) and sits on the coastline at Buitan Beach with the majestic Mount Agung only a short distance away.
The Alila sits in a very serene setting with a coconut grove offering welcome shade around an dazzling blue pool. In fact, the main attraction at the resort is the pool - it is not huge but very welcoming and very clean.
The rooms are spacious, clean and depending on which room you choose, may come with a balcony with offers wonderful views over the pool and onto the ocean beyond.
The restaurant offers wonderful Balinese or western cuisine and the staff are always happy to offer advice on choices.
Afternoon tea by the pool is a real treat with delicious herbal ginger and lemongrass tea and local sweet delights.
The hotel offers a wonderful base from which to explore the small yet very vibrant area of Candidasa which has a surprising number of small yet very funky little restaurants and bars.
Further afield is the magnificent Mount Agung - considered the centre of the Balinese universe and sacred to the people of Bali. An awesome sight to behold when the clouds which constantly cover its summit do eventually dissipate.
The Alila offers a wonderful and homely atmosphere where the staff always ask you to make yourself at home. Nothing is too much trouble and their warm and friendly nature is overwhelming and disarming.
If you are thinking of visiting Bali, go beyond Kuta and visit Alila Manggis. It will not disappoint you.
