The Alila Manggis Candidasa is a peaceful seaside resort in East Bali situated within the regency of Karangasem. Indeed, in this area you find the authentic side of Bali and the people base their living on farming, fishing, weaving, salt making or cultivating rice. Facing the black sandy beach the minimalistic architecture of the resort surrounds a wide pool area with beautiful palms. This architecture was realized by Kerry Hill Architects.
The Alila Manggis Candidasa Lifestyle
Offering 53 rooms and two suites, one villa 45 minutes from the Alila Manggis away, an exclusive spa, the beachbar, lobby lounge and the Seasalt restaurant, the resort provides everything you need to enjoy.
All rooms include a private terrace or balcony and offer cable TV, IDD telephone, mini bar, bath amenities and in-room safe. All rooms have 34 square meters.
Seaview suites with own balcony and daybed are available. Really impressive is arrangement of buildings surrounding a huge garden and pool area. This means you get a great panorama view over the resort and beach area.
Special hotel recommendation
What we really want to highlight is the scenic location between the volcano Mount Agung and the seaside. Beside the great architecture of the resort it’s simply a perfect starting point for daytrips. The Balinese mother temple Pura Besakih is not far away on the way to Mount Agung and it consists of more than twenty temples and shrines. Also the protected village of Tenganan is a great daytrip to explore an old traditional village. Amed with its extraordinary ocean views is another must do for divers and lovers of crystal clear water.
The hotel beach is not sandy, although there are nice white beaches not far away like the white beach “Pantai Putih”. Overall the resort combines relaxing with cultural learning and culinary pleasure. Moreover the Alila Manggis might be a good choice for conference meetings and weddings as well but the main target groups are couples, families and friends.
