Within the enchanting beauty of nature lies the magnificent haven that basks in the charm of the island of gods.
Tracing the footsteps of one of Bali’s most revered spots leads to an exquisite luxury resort perched on limestone cliffs on the island’s southern coast, one hundred meters above the vast Indian Ocean.
Here in Uluwatu is where an exotic panorama sparks the charm of an area of many thousands of years older than mainland Bali, beautifully wrapped with some of the best surfing spots on the island.
Alila Villas Uluwatu, the first all-pool villa property in a new generation of Alila Hotels and Resorts properties, features the blend of tropical and palatial resort living in harmony with natural beauty.
This 15-hectare eco-luxury resort is indeed a perfect getaway that takes you to revel in royal indulgence. It’s a perfect destination to enjoy a glorious golden sunset in Uluwatu’s aquamarine ocean.
Imagine having yourself unwound with a glass of Martini at a site that overlooks the ocean’s breathtaking view in company with the sound of roaring waves. It’s simply heavenly!
Aside from the resort’s one-bedroom guest villas and five-star resort facilities, the enjoyment of the paradise has now extended to the fullest with the presence of three-bedroom private residential villas.
Nothing is comparable than freeing yourself from the city’s hustle and bustle to the sumptuous indulgence at one of the resort’s luxurious three-bedroom private residential villas.
Alila Villas Uluwatu features three-bedroom Cliffside and Hillside Pool Villas exceptionally designed for those seeking a luxury retreat with the quintessential vibes of Balinese spirit.
Framed by a glorious panorama of ocean and sky, each of the three-bedroom villas is elegantly designed with contemporary style that marries traditional Balinese materials of wood, rattan and stone.
Covering an expansive 2,000 – 3,000 sqm of space, each of five of the three-bedroom Cliffside Pool Villas is designed around a flowing sequence of indoor and outdoor spaces extending up the cliff edge. The spaces really propagate the unchartered feeling of time standing still.
A central courtyard and a private infinity pool, being few metres away from the bedrooms of each villa, contribute to a complete indulgence in a spot where you can capture the stunning vistas all the way through. What is so amazing is how the pool is astonishingly built to merge with the ocean horizon.
Those who prefer to be around the beauty of hilly landscape will find the three-bedroom Hillside Pool Villas fascinating. Inspired by the sloping terrain, all the 25 villas are beautifully arranged in tiers with views stretching to the ocean horizon.
Regardless of where you stay, be it the Cliffside or Hillside, you will be greeted with the five-star gratification that pampers all your senses. Among the facilities are the presence of personal butler, a delicious list of exquisite cuisines from the resort’s culinary delight and blissful spa treatment. More interestingly, there is leisure concierge that allows you to have a car and driver to explore the island.
What makes the both types of villa interesting is the opportunity to own. Looking at all the facilities and the experience that guests can get, not to mention the limited number of units on offer, this type of low-risk investment with high Return on Investment (ROI) is surely a rare yet lucrative opportunity you will not miss.
You have the freedom to choose – whether to make your own villa your exclusive holiday accommodation or an income-generating investment. For those opting for the latter, Alila Hotels and Resorts will be the one to manage the property, paving the way for the owner to earn a passive income. It’s a great lifestyle investment vehicle, indeed.
Beautifully set against the island’s exotic Savannah landscape, Alila Villas Uluwatu is designed by award-winning architectural firm, WOHA, applying environmentally sustainable design principles.
Behind the appointment of WOHA is its know-how in incorporating non-invasive designs with the existing surrounding. WOHA is well known with such a project. And it could not come as a better choice that Alila Villas Uluwatu had decided to work with WOHA on this Bali’s cliff-top resort development.
In point of fact, Alila Villas Uluwatu is the first resort in Indonesia to obtain the highest level of certification from Green Globe for Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD). The certification was awarded owing to the development’s use of sustainable and recycled materials that support the protection of natural environment.
To encounter the Balinese spirit, the resort offers a list of bespoke customized activities for you to experience with. The activities usually involve in-depth exploration of the local surroundings and culture. Whether it is in the form of the arts and crafts like stone sculpture session, or others of culinary and cultural journey, their activities leave an indelible impression for many guests.
One of the most popular journeys is The Journey of Enlightenment, which takes guests to discover the history of High Priest Dang Hyang Niratha, a Hindu High Priest in the 15th century in East Java during the Golden Era of the Majapahit dynasty.
More what worldwide guests can exclusively have in terms of a luxury holiday here, including the culinary indulgence in Indonesian and Balinese fare at The Warung, or simply heading to CIRE to spoil their palate with the restaurant’s sumptuous menu that lists a variety of contemporary Western dishes.
But don’t leave the place without having an extensive treatment of Spa Alila that Combines both Asian and Western therapy techniques. The special selection of natural active ingredients is uniquely designed to regenerate and rejuvenate. The techniques and ingredients are rarely available in other places on the island.
The high enjoyment Alila Villas Uluwatu facilitates is indeed luxury and exotic (luxotic). Such one-of-a-kind sustainable pleasure that blends the beauty of nature with holiday whim seems to only exist here…in the luxotic world of Uluwatu.
