Alila Manggis, Hotel Facilities
by: Galuh Wulandarie

Though covering less than 2 ha area, Alila Manggis does maximize the minimum size. Alila deliberately free us to celebrate our own choices and live in rhythm with its “Surprisingly Different” experience. Each activity is designed for different characters and then who knows after experiencing some of these activities, you may actually find your true inner self. Several of the highlighted facilities and activities at Alila Manggis:

  • Swimming Pool
    You can see that the pool area is the center of all activities and surrounded by sundecks and sunbathing benches. At day time around 10 am, most of the benches will be occupied with sun worshipers. The pool is designed as an unusual inverted pyramid which leaves shallow water around the edges and deep waters in the middle. At 5 pm daily you are welcome to join the complimentary afternoon tea which is held near the pool area complete with Balinese sweets and cookies.

  • Water Leisure and Activities
    Alila Manggis has a rocky beach so it is a little dangerous to swim on the coast, though during low tide times, you can swim there more safely. 
    • Diving & Snorkeling
      This is one of the most favored activities. Alila Manggis has the traditional Indonesian fisherman boat called the “Jukung”, which can accommodate up to four persons. Discover the coastline of East Bali and experience Blue Lagoon for diving and Snorkeling. The equipments are included in the price with the coaching from a professional PADI instructor.

    • Fishing
      An activity to complete your day after snorkeling at the Blue Lagoon.

    • Rafting
      The famous spot for rafting in Bali is Ayung River, but that does not mean rafting at Talaga Waja is less fun! I have experienced both rafting at Ayung and Talaga Waja, and I must say that I was more impressed with the latter!

  • Other Activities

    • Trekking Mount Agung
      The General Manager of Alila Manggis, Mr Jork Bosselaar, shares with us his experience of trekking up this wondrous Mountain and the indescribable sight he discovered at the end of his journey up. However, he did confess to having trouble standing for the next couple of days. It is about a 4-5 hours one-way trek. Get ready for the 2.30 am wake up call and experience having breakfast on top of the mountain while watching the sunrise.

    • Cycling This is a good way to interact with the local people. Find up to four cycling tracks available and do bring along the map.

    • History Flashback
      Get to know Bali by studying its Hindu ceremonies. Visit the Mother Temple Besakih, the King’s Palace at Amlapura, a pre-Hindu Village called Tenganan, the home of thousands of bats at the Goa Lawah (bat cave) or even experience the process of making organic salt at Kusamba.

    • Spiritual Activities
      • Tai Chi and Yoga
        Treat yourself by focusing on your body and mind and gain the inner strength. Do Tai Chi every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and Yoga every Tuesday and Thursday.

      • Traditional Healing
        Please meet Pak Nengah, a healer (Known in Bali as “Balian”) who is believed to be bestowed with the gift of healing from the Gods. Balinese people trust the power of the Balians to heal any aches and solve any problems by using certain herbs or massage.
  • Culinary Activities

    • Balinese Cooking
      This half day activity will bring you a whole new set of knowledge in your culinary journeys. Visit the morning market at Klungkung after having an early breakfast with the chefs. Learn how to use Ulekan (traditional Balinese mortar and pestle), Chili Sambal (spicy chili paste), Bumbu Bali (Balinese curry paste) and Bumbu Sate (peanut sauce). Later on in the day, you will be able to enjoy your own Cumi-Cumi Bumbu Bali (braised squid with prawn in Balinese spices), Vegetable Curry with Tofu and Bean Cake and Tapioka Leaves braised in Coconut Milk for lunch at the Sealsalt Restaurant.

    • Sunday Sunset Cooking
      An afternoon class that starts at 4 pm located by the sea. You will learn how to make Fresh Water Prawn Curry, Lobster with Bumbu Bali, Ikan Pepes (Fish wrapped in Banana leaves) and other enticing seafood dishes. After the class you can go to the Night Market where you will find various food stalls and you can taste the original Balinese flavors.

    • All-day Eating in Bali
      This is for those who are curious about Balinese warungs and afraid to try one. A journey includes 3 different dining experiences from market snacks, five course spicy fresh seafood lunch, meeting the village cooks and getting to know the secrets of their hospitality.

  • Organic Garden

    Welcome to Alila Manggis Organic Garden! It is located 10 minutes from the Alila Manggis in Bukit Catu Valley, at the foothills of Mount Agung. You will not believe the encircling beauty once you reach there with the endless rice terraces overlooking the sea. I was greeted first by the 3 ducks on my left side and 2 goats on my right side!

    Sadly when I went there, they have just finished harvesting, so there was not much left to see. But I did have the chance to see almost ripe tomatoes, papayas, a small square of pandan leaves, and others. Right in the middle of it, there was a traditional Balinese pavilion and according to Mr. Hasan, the Front Office Manager who accompanied us during the tour, the Organic Garden cooking lesson takes place in the pavilion for both cooking and lunch.

    Besides having the organic garden, Alila Manggis also work with the locals to prevent the use of pesticides and educate more people about organic methods in farming and gardening.
