Design Hotels will open Alila Villas Uluwatu, its new member hotel in Bali, on April 1. The resort sits atop a 328-foot cliff on Bali’s southern coastline, a 30-minute drive from the International Airport. The resort has 52 one-bedroom villas, two two-bedroom villas, five three-bedroom cliffside villas and 25 three-bedroom private villas, each open to the outdoors, offering Indian Ocean views. All villas showcase contemporary interiors enhanced with wood, water, stone and rattan and traditional Balinese accents.
Other features include a 164-foot-long pool, a fitness center, resort library, yoga and Pilates studio, an event center and a wedding pavilion and lawn. Personalized services include three levels of butler service. The Spa comprises five deluxe spa villas where traditional Balinese massages and beauty treatments are offered. Alila Villas Uluwatu’s two restaurants, The Warung and The Restaurant, are helmed by Executive Chef Stefan Zijta, former sous-chef at Vermeer, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant in Amsterdam. The Warung offers traditional Balinese and Indonesian cuisines.
Alila Villas Uluwatu is the first resort in Bali designed from the ground up to achieve “Green Globe” certification, the highest level of Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD).
