AMER­ICA, MEET ALILA

Destination of the World News - - NEWS -

A FAVOURITE RE­TREAT IN THE MID­DLE EAST AND ASIA, ALILA HO­TELS & RE­SORTS is tak­ing its style of eco-friendly lux­ury to North Amer­ica. Known for nestling into stun­ning des­ti­na­tions (think high on Oman’s ver­dant Ja­bal Akhdar and over­look­ing the In­dian Ocean from lime­stone cliffs on Bali), its Amer­i­can de­but looks like it will not dis­ap­point, sit­u­ated on Cal­i­for­nia’s epic Big Sur coast­line. Ven­tana Big Sur, an Alila Re­sort is slated to open au­tumn this year, fol­low­ing a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar restora­tion of the pre­vi­ously-known-as Ven­tana Inn & Spa prop­erty, and will vaunt 59 re­vamped guest rooms with ac­cess to a full-ser­vice Spa Alila, two en­hanced out­door pools, and new in­fin­ity-edge hot tub and out­door Ja­panese hot baths. Ad­di­tion­ally, Alila’s com­pre­hen­sive Ex­pe­ri­ence Pro­gram will be avail­able, with plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties to help dis­cover the re­mark­able re­gion, and – for the camper ac­cus­tomed to the finer things – the de­but of glamp­ing in the re­sort’s 20-acre red­wood for­est.
