A heavenly pool, manicured grounds, the sea just beyond the grass, and yet totally affordable rooms. So what’s the catch?
This is the view from our room at the Alila Manggis hotel in Manggis, East Bali. As we said yesterday, Bali is chock full of luxury hotels. Alila is one of those luxury brands, with real bucket list hotels like Alila Villas Uluwatu and The Soori Estate.
But with prices well into the $600s for those bucket list properties, they’re not exactly affordable. But there is one “budget” Alila: Alila Manggis. Over here, in less popular East Bali, our room cost $153, including breakfast, an hour-long spa treatment of our choice, and transfers to and from the airport.

It's the season of celebrity engagements! While most of us would be content with an intimate proposal in a sentimental location and a carat or two, celebrities go all out with their engagements, often popping the question with a monster five or six carat ring while on vacation at some to-die-for luxury resort.
After word came yesterday that Natalie Portman and LeAnn Rimes said "yes" to their lovers, we found out that pop singer Lily Allen also got engaged to her boyfriend, Sam Cooper, at the Amankila Resort in Bali from the luxe Aman Resorts.
And coincidentally, a HotelChatter Flickr Pool member, had just dropped these gorgey photos of the resort in our Flickr pool.
