Tucked amidst the lush landscapes of East Bali, Alila Manggis houses a culinary gem that is more than just a dining destination – Seasalt Restaurant. As the inaugural “Seasalt” culinary brand of the Alila Hotels & Resorts collection, the name draws inspiration from the ancient salt pans near Goa Lawah, where sea salt is harvested through time-honoured techniques, infusing each dish with a distinct minerality that captures the spirit of the island.

The elegant dining venue is a multisensory journey that marries vibrant Indonesian and Western cuisine with the rich tapestry of local heritage. Set in a traditional thatched-roof Balinese pavilion, the venue is surrounded by a beautiful lotus pond, setting the stage for an immersive culinary experience.

The menu showcases a celebration of East Balinese cuisine, blending ancient flavours with contemporary culinary methods. At the core of the Seasalt experience is the Megibung, the signature meal that draws inspiration from the traditional communal dining ritual held during village festivals and ceremonies. Guests are invited to gather around the Dulang, a carved timber stand, to share an array of outstanding Balinese dishes.

Several must-try dishes range from authentic Balinese and Indonesian staples such as Ayam Sambal Matah, Soto Ayam, Nasi Goreng Be Pasih, and Ayam Kare to Asian fusion options such as Alila Manggis Salad, Pan Seared Mahi Mahi, Roasted Pumpkin and Mushroom Risotto, and Western favourites which serves a selection of Pizza, Pasta and Sandwiches.

Seasalt offers a glimpse into the vibrant culture and traditions of East Bali, presenting guests with a remarkable journey where tradition meets creativity, where each bite is a celebration of life, community and the spellbinding charm of the island.
