Alila ManggisSwimming Pool

One of Bali’s best kept secrets, the Alila Manggis (formerly known as the Serai) is a secluded, stylish resort located on a tranquil beach in Manggis, East Bali. Set amidst a coconut grove, the resort nestles between the sea and the majestic Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred mountain.

All rooms and suites face the ocean with clear views across the straits to Nusa Penida. A contemporary interpretation of traditional Balinese architecture is artfully combined with modern amenities to create a relaxed environment in harmony with its natural surroundings.
