Today we arrived at Alila Manggis on the east side of Bali. We are here to experience all that an Alila Bali honeymoon has to offer. From the airport, the resort is approximately and hour and a half drive. Alila Manggis is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist towns near the airport. As we drove through the picturesque countryside, we knew we were getting closer to something truly special.
My first impression of the resort was of much delight. While I knew the resort would be a relaxing retreat, the grounds, landscaping, pool, and amenities were even more impressive in person than the hotel website portrays. We spent the afternoon wandering the grounds taking in the lovely sights and relaxing poolside. After a mini massage by the experienced professionals from their spa, it was time for high tea, Bali style, by the pool. The fresh herbal tea here is so delicious, I’m now fully addicted to freshly ground ginger and lemongrass tea!
As day began to turn to night, we started to wind down our day with a yoga session by the sea, followed by relaxing on our private balcony. That evening we enjoyed a gourmet dinner at the resort restaurant. It was the perfect start to our Alila Honeymoon!
