Old school but not bad value
The Alang Alang is the first of the resorts along Sengiggi’s more premier beach strip, Mangsit.
It’s here’s you’ll find the far classier Quincy Villas, and, a beach further north, the lovely Jeeva Klui, but at Alang Alang you can enjoy similar views (if not the beach, as there is a retaining wall here) at a fraction of the price. Rooms are old school -- we assume this is another land bank waiting for a buyer, but the lush grounds are filled with birdsong that drowns out the traffic noise from the road behind. The waters out front are a lovely turquoise -- refreshing from the murkiness of the bays to the south -- but the retaining wall ends with a pile of rubble which would make getting into said turquoise waters a bit of a challenge. The resort was completely full when we breezed through in December 2014 so we were unable to comment on the interiors, but from outside this has the feel of an old-school resort so we wouldn’t be expecting too much of the rooms. The grounds do have a freeform pool towards the southern end of the resort and there is plenty of space throughout for kids. The "garden view" rooms are in a two-storey building towards the rear of the resort and for the relatively small difference in price, the seaview rooms are a far better deal. Alang Alang is a decent drive from central Senggigi, so you’ll be needing either your own transport or taxis for roaming into town.
