A celestial resort that seems as if it was conjured from a dream, Alila Manggis sits between the Indian Ocean and the sacred Mount Agung amid the sort of unspoiled landscape that first attracted travelers to Bali. This intimate boutique hotel faces a black sand beach and rough seas, but the hotel's central feature is the inverted pyramid pool. Flanked by graceful palms, its unusual style provides shallow water along the edges for lounging and cooling off.
