Alila Villas Soori is set on a gentle slope between lush rice paddies and a rugged black sand beach close to Bali’s famous Tanah Lot Temple. This is one of Bali's most fertile and picturesque regions and tends to be quieter than some of the other coastal destinations.
All of the gorgeous villas combine contemporary Asian architecture with traditional Balinese touches and are luxuriously appointed with crisp linens, indoor and outdoor showers and private pools and boast either far-reaching views of the rice fields or panoramic ocean views.
The property houses three superb restaurants offering casual all day dining in the elegant Cotta, to beachfront dining at Coast and quiet refreshments and snacks at Drift. There is also a signature Spa Alila, a secluded sanctuary with treatments blending Asian healing techniques with age-old beauty recipes featuring the curative benefits of fresh and natural ingredients. Enjoy the large infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean and the luxury of the 24-hour personalised butler service and Alila Concierge that can arrange activities within the surrounding area.
There are 15 Beach Pool Villas, 15 Ocean Pool Villas, 8 Terrace Pool Villas and 8 three-bedroom Pool Villas. All have been designed to maximise the views of the paddy fields, beach and sea and yet are very private. Custom designed interiors offer the height in luxury and hi tech functionality and all villas have butler service.

When to travel
Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.
