From the spectacular aerial location of the Alila Uluwatu Villas, limestone cliffs sweep down giving each villa an extraordinary view of the crashing waves below. Each villa has been meticulously and individually designed to blend into this landscape and afford the best views.
All of the 56 private luxury villas at Alila Villas Uluwatu have private pools and a spacious outdoor area. The villa interiors are furnished in a contemporary style but still incorporate the use of traditional Balinese materials. The open plan design means that the rooms benefit from the sea breeze and the huge glass windows give you stunning views from your room to the ocean.
Alila Villas Uluwatu boasts two restaurants, serving a mix of traditional Indonesian food and western cuisine to suit all tastes as well as an Alila Spa offering a range of different pampering treatments to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible.
The Alila Villas Uluwatu comprise One-Bed Villas, Three-Bed Hillside Villas and Three-Bed Cliffside Villas. All of the villas have lovely private pools and are designed with contemporary interiors with a Balinese twist. Walkways and bridges connect the areas within your villa and the feeling is very much of open living. All villas include: double his/her vanities, indoor rain shower, outdoor shower, indoor bathtub, private pool, outdoor dining area, wifi, safe, tea and coffee facilities, TV and docking station with iPod.
Children are welcome at the Alila Villas Soori and the expansive three-bedroom villas would be perfect for a large family. There are, however, no other specific facilities here for children except for babysitting.
There are two main restaurants, The Warung which serves Indonesian and Balinese cuisine in a relaxed poolside setting and CIRE for more formal fine dining. Dining in your villa and around the resort is also easy to arrange and extensive options are available to make it a truly special and private event. There is a dramatic 50-metre swimming pool, gallery, library, gym, yoga and pilates studio and the fabulous, rejuvenating Spa Alila which combines both Asian and Western therapy techniques.
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.
