Behold Alila Villas Uluwatu. It may just take your breath away. Perched above the Indian Ocean on the southernmost tip of Bali, the views are the stuff dreams are made of. Aquamarine ocean vistas glazed with orange glows from the golden sunsets, verdant gardens lush with flora, just perfect.
Prepare to be awestruck with the style and character of this hotel, but rest assured it’s at a minimal cost to the environment. It has been awarded the first and highest level of certification in Indonesia from Green Globe for its sustainable design. The earthy hues of the architecture help intensify the glistening blues of the pool, ocean and sky, Instagram gold for the social media savvy.
Steps down from the hotel lead to beach paradise, exclusive to guests of the hotel. Or choose to laze by the swimming pool instead and lap up the golden rays of the Indonesian sun while sipping on a cocktail made especially for you from The Warung. Elsewhere in the hotel, you can find the gorgeous spa with its renowned, coma-inducing Shirodhara treatment. Service is friendly and personal.
The hotel’s private villas also follow an environmentally sustainable framework. The clean, yet contemporary, interiors are enhanced with touches of nature and traditional Balinese accents – reflected in planes of wood, water, stone and rattan. The open-plan design allows the gentle sea breeze to circulate throughout for a relaxing tropical feel. Indoor and outdoor showers and luxuriously deep baths are peppered with locally-made amenities to help relax the body and soul. Each villa comes with its own butler, swimming pool and stylish sunbathing cabana, making it almost impossible to leave.
Refined Indonesian cuisine is on the menu. The three restaurants; the ocean views of Cire, the more relaxed Warung and the culinary thrill of Quila, offer a no-nonsense approach to exquisite, well-presented food. Expect authentic, regionally inspired dishes; curried soups from Java, aromatic beef from Padang, or just-caught seafood from Bali, to name a few. The à la carte breakfast can be enjoyed in the restaurant or can be served in your villa at no additional charge.
The hotel is family-friendly despite its grown-up style. Butlers are trained babysitters and there is a range of activities to suit all ages, including trips to local markets and cooking lessons. Daily wellness classes, a fully equipped gym and a peaceful library offer guests the flexibility to pass the time in pursuit of happiness.
