We first went to the Alila Hotel in Mangis Bali 11 years ago and promised ourselves that we would go back. What is interesting is that whilst we were welcomed back like old friends there were so many of the staff that are still there not only after 11 years but in some cases 18 years - surely testament to job satisfaction which is reflected in the friendly and superb level of service. Jordi you are doing a truly fine job. Whilst there we were taken by some of the staff to a ceremony at a local Temple which was a very memorable experience and so colourful. We experienced a local market and then had a cooking lesson in the hotels own organic garden located a few miles away in a beautiful country position in the middle of some rice padi fields. On our last night my wife celebrated a Birthday and at little extra cost the hotel organised a candle lit dinner close to the sea with a menu which was devised specifically for our tastes. All in I cannot recommend this hotel enough and we will certainly be back!
