ALILA VILLAS ULUWATU
Perched like an exotic birdcage on a cliff 100 metres above the vast Indian Ocean, Alila Villas Uluwatu offers sweeping views over the azure waters, glorious golden sunsets and magnificent star-studded night skies that will have you pondering the unfathomable beauty of it all.
Beautiful and smart are two adjectives that do not usually go hand in hand, but Alila Villas Uluwatu is that rare exception. The property showcases contemporary Balinese-inspired design aesthetics that defy the usual clichés. Smartly designed living spaces make use of traditional locally sourced materials. Even old timber telegraph poles and wood railway sleepers were recycled as building materials.
Alila Villas Uluwatu is smartly designed with ultra-stylish, minimalist architecture that takes full advantage of its cliff-top setting. It also follows rigorous environmentally friendly business practices that helped it become the first resort in Bali to be awarded the prestigious Green Globe certification for “Best Practice Building Planning and Design.”
SLEEP: Each individual villa is specifically designed and constructed to follow an environmentally sustainable framework, with its own pool and private cabana overlooking the Indian Ocean. The 84 villas showcase contemporary interiors enhanced with touches of nature and traditional Balinese accents — reflected in planes of wood, water, stone and rattan. Walkways and bridges connect the relaxation pavilions and pools to the spacious living areas. The open-plan design, unique flat lava-rock roof and bamboo ceiling allow the gentle sea breezes to circulate throughout each room in the villas.
EAT: Staying at Alila Villas Uluwatu, you’d better have a healthy appetite. For Indonesian and Balinese food lovers, The Warung will tantalize your taste buds. Indoor and outdoor dining is provided in this welcoming yet sophisticated space. The friendly and convivial atmosphere enables diners to have a casual, laid-back experience. Cire presents contemporary Western cuisine prepared with regional produce. Pronounced “seer,” Cire refers to a process of waxing or polishing, paying tribute to the Balinese batik stamps that decorate the restaurant. If you are in search of an understated fine-dining experience you will not only be impressed by the exquisitely plated dishes, but will also be pleased with Cire’s smart configuration, with the addition of cleverly placed screens and art pieces to allow each party the exclusiveness of their own private dining area.
RELAX: Spa Alila offers an extensive treatment menu that combines both Asian and Western therapy techniques and showcases its special selection of natural active ingredients that are uniquely designed to regenerate and rejuvenate.
I DO: Several event venues are available for every type of occasion. With spectacular ocean views, the venues promise to make any event that much more special. The resort has a team of wedding and event planners who are always ready to offer expert guidance. For a truly spectacular event, try the Sunset Cabana, an overhanging cliff-side platform with dramatic views over the Indian Ocean.
