The Elegant Resorts & Villas Collection
A kaleidoscope of worshipful design
Close to the much-photographed Tanah Lot Temple, on the wild and less-touristic southwest coast of Bali, Alila Villas Soori is a vision of breathtaking architecture and design that will obliterate what you might have imagined and magnify the reality of its pleasure tenfold. It takes pride of place on a gentle slope, cradled in a landscape of jade-green rice terraces, iridescent black-sand beaches and the magical turquoise of the Indian Ocean.
Let’s get straight to the bar: The Reading Room, the chic air-conditioned cool of this light filled space with its comfy couches and weathered wood floor is the ideal spot to escape the direct sun by day. Ease back and plan a day or just slip into idyllic reverie. Read the latest style-guru magazines, borrow a IPad, sip tea or nibble on a Balinese spiced duck burger. By night a different kind of cool emerges.
There is a sense of arrival wherever you are in the resort, created by the architecture, restful gardens, reflective ponds and the masterful interplay of fire and water. Inside the slick spa, located below a reflective pond, an aqua ceiling fills the space with a soothing play of watery light. Add several decadent dining options, a spectacular infinity pool on a cliff edge high above the beach, submerged daybeds at its shallow end, plus the essential ingredient of service from personable hosts and you’re in paradise rediscovered!
Minimalist open-plan villas are part of an overall design of interconnected spaces that flow from the arrival courtyard down onto the beach. These villas are a sublime celebration of luxury and high-tech functionality whilst capturing the sensual light and sounds of the natural setting. All have private salt-water pools, courtyard terraces for sun worship, ocean-view cabanas and direct access to the beach.
Book a second-storey ocean pool villa if only for its sea-view bath tub.
