The new Alila Villas resorts collection will represent the highest level of hospitality Alila Hotels and Resorts has offered to date.
With Alila Villas, Alila Hotels and Resorts introduces a striking line of exclusive timeless properties that provide unparalleled experiences that are ever, surprisingly different. Alila Villas properties are ultra-luxe yet sustainable developments in some of the most naturally spectacular landscapes, offering an unprecedented level of private space, contemporary design and architecture, personalized hospitality and lifestyle experiences inspired by the respect for the local destination. This year, Alila Hotels and Resorts will also be launching Alila Villas Hadahaa in the pristine Gaafu Alifu Atoll in southern Maldives and Alila Villas Soori in picturesque West Bali.
Alila Villas is distinctively the only collection of resorts in the world where all properties are painstakingly designed, constructed and managed in accordance with Green Globe’s rigorous environmental and social responsibility benchmarks, which can be considered to be one of the world’s highest standards. Sensitive site planning, the use of local building materials, native landscaping, energy efficiency, waste minimization, biodiversity protection and community engagement are in place at every one of the Alila Villas properties.
Green Globe is the international benchmarking and certification programme for the travel and tourism industry based on the Agenda 21 principles for Sustainable Development endorsed by 182 Heads of State at the United Nations Rio Earth Summit in 1992. Green Globe is managed by EC3 Global, a subsidiary of the Australian based research body Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre, the world’s largest source of tourism research.
While treading lightly to preserve the splendour of a destination, one of the many distinguishing features of Alila Villas reflects Alila Hotels and Resorts’ commitment to working with and showcasing the very best talents in architecture and design in Asia. All Alila Villas properties are designed by the best in Asia. Alila Villas Uluwatu was designed by Wong Mun Summ of WOHA and Richard Hassell. Alila Villas Hadahaa and Alila Villas Soori were designed by Chan Soo Khian of SCDA Architects. These award-winning architects have fashioned outstanding and innovative resort architecture and design for the three Alila Villas resorts in their respective destinations, brilliantly transforming the guest experience.
Alila Villas will set new standards in space and luxury. All Alila Villas properties feature spacious and elegant villas designed to meet the discerning traveler’s lifestyle and most importantly, to enhance well-being and provide a subtle connection to the fascinating culture of the destination. The absolute experience of luxury living is complemented by Alila’s brand of warm and genuine hospitality in the form of villa services hosted by a 24-hour dedicated in-villa service team.
Alila Hotels and Resorts believes that true luxury lies in the personalized experiences unique to the geography and environment of each property. Such meaningful experiences can only be created for guests through valuable in-depth local knowledge. At Alila Villas Uluwatu, guests can experience a centuries-old pilgrimage as they make their way through five beautiful and historic temples located in Bali’s Bukit region guided by the resort’s leisure concierge team. At Alila Villas Hadahaa, guests can be dazzled by bright constellations from both hemispheres at the specially designed star-gazing deck. Guests will be equally mesmerized when embarking on a journey to discover the formation of islands and atolls in the unexplored regions of the Southern Maldives. At Alila Villas, one may discover one-of-a-kind experiences and memories to last a lifetime.
Developments of further stunning Alila Villas properties are currently underway in China, India, Indochina, Oman and the Gulf region.
