WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO: Bali, part 3, Alila Villas Uluwatu


Alila Villas Uluwatu is a very modern eco-resort, housing spacious villas in a dramatic setting perched high above the sea at Uluwatu.

Uluwatu means “rock at the land’s end”. It is not possible to swim in the sea here, as currents are very strong. But the scenery is absolutely stunning. The main 50 metre cliff edge pool area is a great hang out area, with cabanas and ample sunbathing space. Or you might well prefer to linger around your private pool - the pools in each villa are pretty big.

The 84 pool villas are all about private space. Villas (from 294 sqm to 3000 sqm) are all similarly appointed (think ultra modern d├ęcor) with one, two or three bedrooms. The open-plan design, unique flat lava rock roofs and bamboo ceiling allow the gentle sea breeze to flow in freely, while from the bed to the bathtub, every view is open to the outdoors.

Luxurious amenities include indoor and outdoor rain shower and jet shower, Ploh bed linens, and separate His and Hers bathroom amenities. But perhaps best of all is your your private pool and cabana looking out toward the Indian Ocean.

The famous Uluwatu Temple is close by. Here there are daily dance performances at 6pm. Half or full day trips can be organised beyond Uluwatu for guests wishing to soak up Balinese culture.

This is likely spot for the trendy set who go for modernism over clutter. Overall, super stylish. During peak period, this could be the place to be seen!
