The Westin Re­sort Nusa Dua

hellobali Guide to Bali - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

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.
