Design Hotels announces the opening of Alila Villas Uluwatu, its new member hotel in Bali, on April 1, 2009. Alila Villas Uluwatu, a first all pool-villa property in a new generation of Alila Hotels and Resorts, is the first resort in Bali designed from the ground up to achieve “Green Globe” certification, the highest level of Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD).
The Villa Resort With a “WOHA” Effect
Atop a 328-foot cliff, Alila Villas Uluwatu is located along the southern coastline of Bali within a 30-minute drive from the International Airport. The resort offers 52 one-bedroom villas, 2 two-bedroom villas, 5 three-bedroom cliffside villas and 25 three-bedroom private villas, each open to the outdoors, offering Indian Ocean views from bed to bathtub.
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, while The Restaurant is the property’s fine-dining option offering contemporary Western cuisine prepared with fresh regional produce.
For relaxation and rejuvenation, guests can head to The Spa, five deluxe spa villas where traditional Balinese massages and beauty treatments are offered. The therapies combine both Asian and Western therapy techniques utilizing a selection of natural active ingredients. Also on offer are a range of exercise, yoga and meditation classes for guests who seek to invigorate their senses.
