Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali, now open

Alila Villas Uluwatu, the first luxury all pool villa property in a new generation of Alila Hotels and Resorts properties is now open. Situated on an elevated plateau along the southern coastline of Bali, Alila Villas Uluwatu offers breathtaking views of dramatic limestone cliffs sweeping down to the Indian Ocean.Designed by award-winning Singaporean architecture firm, WOHA, the property marries environmentally sustainable design properties with style. The property was designed and constructed in accordance with Green Globe standards. Awarded the prestigious Green Globe “Best Practice Building Planning and Design” certification, Alila Villas Uluwatu is the first resort in Bali to meet the program’s rigorous standards.

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.

Alila Villas Uluwatu achieved this certification by showcasing a contemporary Balinese-inspired design aesthetic which blends seamlessly into the natural landscape.  To reinforce their commitment to the environment and the local community, WOHA made use of traditional locally-sourced materials like local bamboo for the ceilings and hand cut stone for garden walls. To ensure their commitment to the environment, the property will be run in a way that will keep their environmental footprint at a minimum.

WOHA even used the natural sloping terrain to the property’s advantage allowing each of Alila Villas Uluwatu’s villas to be individually tiered, providing guests with panoramic views of the ocean and the horizon, regardless of their villa’s location. This prestigious development offers 52 one-bedroom pool villas, 2 two-bedroom pool villas, 5 three-bedroom Cliffside pool villas and 25 private villas.

Sean Brennan, general manager for Alila Villas Uluwatu, says, “We are proud to launch this ultra-luxurious all-pool villa hotel residences property in Bali. With this, Alila Hotels and Resorts renews its commitment to the beautiful island of Bali.”
