There is something completely invigorating about a whiff of sea salt, the light at sunrise, and the breezes that skim the waves.
At the edge of the Indian Ocean, at Alila Villas Uluwatu, you can almost imagine yourself taking flight from the cliff tops on warm ocean updrafts. This eco-resort luxuriates in fresh sea breezes and the delights of the natural world.
Alila Villas Uluwatu is a stunning showpiece of timber cabanas that look woven into the stone of the cliff sides. Be prepared to fulfil your daily quota of activity on the myriad of steps that lead you up, down, and around this fantastical resort.
The location and design of this sophisticated retreat results in a rejection of fussy technological solutions. The roofs of the buildings are made of lava stone that absorbs and reflects heat, well-positioned lemon grasses are the clever deterrent against mosquitos, and breezes that easily waft through very smartly designed and removable “walls”, negate the need for air conditioning.
The minimalist but nonetheless sumptuous villas are filled with generous treats such as espresso machines, private salt-water infinity pools, room service, gourmet bar, and a butler service.
On the property, there are three epicurean restaurants, a walk-in wine cellar, a public infinity pool, cliff top bar, and a decadent spa.
For those interested in yoga at sunrise, swimming at noon, and delicious cocktails at sunset with the beautiful Bukit Peninsula as the backdrop, it’s hard to do better than Alila Villas Uluwatu.
Each villa features its own private pool and ocean views. Each villa is designed with sustainability in mind and the interior design features touches of nature and Balinese accents. The unique open floor plan allows a light breeze to circulate.
Perched on the hillside, the Two-bedroom Pool Villas overlook the Indian Ocean. With the open design, the fresh ocean air circulates freely over the private infinity pool and daybeds.
The Three-bedroom Pool Villas are the most spacious in this resort. Up to 3,000 sqm graciously hosts up to six adults within the three bedrooms equipped with king beds. Whether the villa is sitting at the cliff edge or on the hillside, the open plan offers sweeping views of the Indian Ocean beyond the private 21m infinity pool.
Restaurants include: The Warung, Cire, Quila, Afternoon Tea in the Sunset Cabana
