The cove of Manggis is located on the east coast of Bali, stretching from Candidasa to Padangbai along the shore, looking out to the Strait of Lombok. The greater Karangasem Regency, of which Manggis is one of eight districts, is noted for sights such as the sacred mountain Gunung Agung and the Pura Besakih temple complex - the largest and most significant Hindu temple on the island. Hillside retreats and quiet black-sand beaches, Manggis is privacy, exclusivity and peace.
A handpicked selection of experiences endorsed by our experts. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, let us know, as our extensive network of local contacts can open many doors.
Sun & Sea
Manggis is truly a place of relaxation by the sea. Soak up the sun and cool off with a swim in your private pool or the resort’s infinity pool.
Unwind and let go. Mental health is as important as physical health, and in Manggis, you can work on both. Take guided yoga and meditation classes, align your chakras with a guru, have a spa treatment, or simply allow yourself to relax at your private villa with a coconut in hand.
Black Sand Beach
For a change of scenery, head down to the shore to bask on the black sand beach, commonly found around volcanoes.
Summit Mt. Batur
Gunung Batur Volcano is one peak within a larger caldera that also contains a lake formed during a particularly powerful eruption 30,000 years ago. This semi-challenging hike that only takes two hours will reward hikers with panoramic views of the island, sea, and Mt. Agung. Wander around the crater to see monkeys playing at the temple and you may also find areas where hot smoke creeps out of the volcano.
