The Indonesian island of Bali has always been known as the island of the gods. Elaborate temples, palm fringed beautiful beaches, abundant springs, dense jungles and a culture so rich that few places make us feel closer to paradise. To enjoy its infinite qualities, find resorts like the Alila Villas Uluwatu, whose architecture mimics much and is so respectful of the environment surrounding the feeling of being in nature is total. In fact, it is the first hotel in Bali receives the highest rating for environmentally sustainable design (ESD). A five-star luxury resort from which you can almost touch the sky.
Alila Villas Uluwatu is composed of villas or luxury villas, a total of 64, with private pool, beautiful views of the Indian Ocean and exquisite decoration respectful to the environment, inspired by the rich Balinese culture. The natural touches and materials come from the island itself, as volcanic stone or coconut wood and bamboo. These materials are also worked by craftsmen from the island.
Both tupes of villas feature a diaphanous design and almost transparent walls that allow the gentle sea breeze to flow through every room in the villas. A pleasure to enjoy the space both indoors and outdoors, even from the shower.
Guests can choose from two types of villas, the one-bedroom and ones with three. The first feature everything named above: private pool, ocean views and furniture made with traditional Balinese wood, all set over one floor with walkways and bridges that lead directly to relaxing common areas.
Made with the same spirit and materials, the ones with three rooms are, as might be expected, larger and have more space for private enjoyment, from 2,000 to 3,000 square meters composed of a huge pool and spacious areas for relaxing and give rewarding family rides. Also lovers of this resort should have in mind that if they want to come back often or even think to settle in the island, they have the opportunity to acquire a private cottage.
Besides enjoying nature almost without leaving your private space, Alila Villas Uluwatu offers other pleasures that you can not ignore, like a spa in which you can receive both local and Western treatments, a large swimming pool, a fitness hall to practice all kinds of disciplines and even hire a private coach and a gallery where works of modern Indonesian art are exhibited. There are also cabins to enjoy a spectacular sunset over the immensely exposed blue waters and of course, a restaurant, The Warung, with all kinds of Balinese and Indonesian specialties.
Of course, no one can deny that the resort works in solidarity with both the community and with initiatives promoting the environmental conservation. A unique place where almost anything is possible: relaxation, having fun, being supportive, enjoying yourself, caring for nature or even praying. Few places are capable of such serenity…
