If there’s one thing an avid angler loves more than a good catch, it’s the fresh feast that follows!
Enjoy a relaxing sail down the mesmerizing River Sal surrounded by tropical vegetation and birds chirping in the wee morning hours. Pass by mangrove-fringed banks and try your luck at spotting eagles, cranes, kingfishers and more.
Watch the fishermen catching crabs and try your hand at catching some too! Fishing line and bait will be provided as your local fisherman guide shares some fishing tips. Grab your crab and return to the resort where our chefs will prepare it just the way you like it for lunch. Even better, you can cook it yourself at a culinary master class.

At-a-Glance The very definition of modern hospitality – eco-friendly properties that blend cutting-edge design with immersive cultural experiences in enticing locales across Asia.
Why You’ll Love It Named after the Sanskrit word for surprise, Alila Hotels and Resorts excels at crafting guest experiences that are unexpectedly different.
The Look and Feel Properties’ innovative designs are both refreshingly modern and rigorously authentic. Indigenous materials are used copiously and local artisan traditions are spotlighted to best reflect the spirt of their destinations. Dining programs grounded in the native culinary culture further promote cross-cultural exchange.
Extraordinary Ethos Alila is at the forefront of eco-tourism, with a rigorous commitment to sustainability. Properties are recognized by EarthCheck, a leading international certification body for the travel and tourism industry, which employs a science-based approach to gauging and mitigating environmental impact. New hotels are designed and built in accordance with the group’s policies. But sustainable operation and design are just the start – Alila makes a commitment to its local host communities by largely employing those who live in surrounding areas, developing the local workforce through training programs, using products and services from local suppliers, and educating guests on local culture and traditions through the engaging Alila Journeys programme.
Headline Appeal Alila Villas, a sub-brand within Alila, ups the luxury quotient with its properties made up of villas with private pools, and its private sail boat that plies Indonesia’s remote and untouched islands.
