The Westin Resort Nusa Dua
LOCATED HIGH ABOVE THE AYUNG RIVER, Alila Ubud hotel has been laid out as a Balinese hillside village complete with its own community centre and pedestrian lanes. The resort’s rooms and villas stand above a ravine on stilts like tree houses and are set into the banks of the river valley.
The world-renowned architectural firm Kerry Hill Architects has made use of traditional Balinese design, but transforming it into modern geometry in the exotic creation of Ubud villa hotel. Smooth plaster walls and concrete meet thatched roofs; terrazzo tiles meet gravel or crushed rock; wood meets glass, making for one of the most uniquely designed boutique hotels Ubud has seen.
All rooms have panoramic views of the magical Ayung valley. The lower floor rooms feature individual garden terraces and a back courtyard with an open-air bathroom and shower. The upper floor rooms enclose a private balcony and unobstructed views. The villas encompass spacious one-bedroom with in-door shower and outdoor bathtub. In-villa hospitalities include swift assistance with in-villa arrival and departure.
Towering coconut pillars and a traditional thatched roof lend a bright and open feel to Alila Ubud’s Plantation restaurant. The Executive Chef artfully prepares authentic Asian and seasonal cuisines as well as some of the finest Balinese dishes. Cuisine naturelle from the organic farm is also available. Guests can also comfort grazing food and seasonal beverages are served at Cabana Lounge, overlooking the dramatic emerald-green pool that floats above the plunging Ayung River Valley.
Draped by a majestic mountain setting, Alila Ubud is a perfect destination for couples seeking an intimate wedding. Set in the Balinese hillside retreat of Payangan, close to the artistic centre of Ubud, the tranquil and inspirational surroundings and range of indoor and outdoor locations make for the most romantic and unique weddings. Individuality is the essence.
