“Heaven in East Bali”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed 3D2N at Alila Manggis for Babymoon (My wife is pregnant).

Our first impression is, this place is soo beautiful. There are 4 block cottages around the pool. When you open the rear room door, you will see the swimming pool overlooking the sea, accompanied by the sound of waves and birds singing all day long.

Sadly there is no sand beach for swim in there. But indeed you can't find the sand beach along the coast of Candidasa except you go to Pasir Putih beach or Padang Bay.

But you still can enjoy the beach by laying at the poolside or your room terrace. Pick what you like :)

Stayed here recently with friends and it was perfect. The rooms were beautiful, everything you could have asked for. Any issues we had were sorted out instantly - our friends felt their room was too hot so a fan was brought up immediately. One of them also wanted ear plugs (due to a snoring partner!) and a staff member drove to 4 different hospitals to get her some.

The staff were friendly and helpful without being too overbearing. The grounds and swimming pool were very well kept and it was just a fantastic, relaxing environment. Breakfast was generous, wonderfully presented and tasty.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and I would certainly stay there again.

Having stayed at other Alila facilities before this one didn't really meet our expectations.

thumbs up
- great, delicious welcome drink
- very friendly and helpful staff
- nice pool area
- generally relaxing atmosphere

thumbs down
- a shuttle to the nearby town is offered, yet, none to the beach that has been advertised online. it would have been nice to not having to pay 40USD extra for a day at the beach
- the resort lacked the special something and could have been anywhere (Egypt, Indonesia, Greece, anywhere warm and touristy). Other Alila resorts did a much better job at incorporating the local culture.

Overall:
We enjoyed our stay here, especially since this was the last stop for 1 day at the end of our trip and all we planned for was a quiet day at the beach/pool-side. Yet, it was not an outstanding place to stay either. All in all: a bit better than average.

Room Tip: ask for a 1st floor room if you don't need direct access to the pool side from your terrace.

Dear Swiss_Miss89,

Firstly, many thanks for taking the time out of your day to provide valuable feedback pertaining to your recent stay with us, much appreciated. We certainly recognize that this took time out of your day for which we are truly thankful.

Furthermore, please accept my sincere apologies for our inability to exceed your expectations specifically referencing the shuttle service to the 20-minute away beach and the location of the property.

We certainly agree with you in respect to the location being tranquil and the region is renowned for being the heart of Bali, which has remained idyllic plus mostly untouched by modernization. Within a short distance of the property there is the beauty of Sideman, the crater of Kintamani, the foothills of Mt Agung, The Palace, Water Temple, white water rafting, unique mountain bike routes, diving, snorkelling, many cultural insights plus location being the main gateway to Lombok.

On a more positive note we are delighted to learn that our team has provided you with excellent service quality and acknowledged plus acted upon all requests / requirements to the fullest extent. Rest assured that I will certainly share your positive comments with the entire Team especially with those whom shared genuine warmth, care and made you feel at home with us during your short stay.

For the future, and when you next decide to visit Bali please be encouraged to contact my office prior, to which I will manage all arrangements for you personally. I am certainly confident in our ability to meet or exceed your expectation and I look forward to this opportunity in the near future.

Once again, thank you for conveying your constructive feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Alila Manggis soon.

With kindest regards,
Sena

We stayed at the Alila Ubud (excellent service and location) and split up our holiday with 9 days in Alila Manggis. As experienced, the Alila high level of service continues. Ask and you receive. Softer mattress... no worries. Ask the leisure concierge about any local sites or experiences and receive information, a smile, directions and a laugh, he is a valuable asset to Alila Manggis. We used Alila Manggis as our base and travelled via motor bike to many locations, swimming, snorkeling, diving, natural salt making, Hindo temples, discovery, photography, talked to locals, culture experiences, rice paddies, and more. The east coast is not commercialised like Kuta, known as the old Bali it is a breath of fresh air. Each day after we travelled we returned to the haven that we call Alila Manggis . The food (exceptional), The friendly staff are the backbone, the beautiful accommodation, the views over the water. The resort is exactly that... a resort or oasis, Want to be indulged?.... This is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Superior room on the upper level are great for the afternoon relaxation over looking the pool.

Top notch property. Might lack a bit of the special, personal touches as some of the others, but little to fault with this place. And the best welcome drink in Bali. Spa and restaurant are solid. Grounds are well-kept. Nice little shop with many local goodies for purchase at fair prices.

My husband and I stayed at Alila Manggis for 5 nights over Christmas 2013. We got married at Alila on Boxing Day and I found Kadek the wedding coordinator wonderful her communication & professionalism fantastic the day ran smoothly without a hitch. All the staff at Alila Manggis we found to be outstanding, always greeting us and even remembering our names. Staff were extremely attentive and very friendly.

The food was amazing and there was not one dish we didn't enjoy, meals were always presented beautifully and tasted fabulous. The head chef often came out for a chat and to make sure we were happy with our meals, the wait staff were exceptional and always explained the menu & local produce used.

Rooms were spotless, quite and included free wifi. The Spa was absolutely beautiful and they use their own products which were divine. The whole resort had a very relaxed and quite vibe but it was really the 5 star service and sensational food that will bring us back again..very soon. It was our first trip to Bali and we absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back to Alila Manggis. We also stayed a few nights at Alila Ubud but just prefer Manggis
