Located high above the Ayung River, Alila Ubud hotel has been laid out as a Balinese hillside village complete with its own community centre and pedestrian lanes. The resort’s rooms and villas stand above a ravine on stilts like tree houses and are set into the banks of the river valley. The world-renowned architectural firm Kerry Hill Architects has made use of traditional Balinese design, but transforming it into modern geometry in the exotic creation of the Ubud villa hotel. Smooth plaster walls and concrete meet thatched roofs; terrazzo tiles meet gravel or crushed rock; wood meets glass, making for one of the most uniquely designed boutique hotels Ubud has seen.
The dramatic emerald-green swimming pool is perched on a terrace and appears to float above the plunging Ayung River valley below. The pool is surrounded by stone-tiled sun decks that feature comfortable sun-beds with attractive Balinese umbrellas.
Unique destination experiences can be arranged by Alila Ubud’s Leisure Concierge. The Alila Ubud team is equipped with local insights and know-how to create unforgettable experiences, either away from the hustle bustle with authentic trips to the mountain village, rice terraces and natural springs, or exploring Bali arts and culture that Ubud is well known for. A myriad of lifestyle activities are available in and around the Alila Ubud hotel in Bali for your leisure: yoga and tai chi, couple celebration experiences, Balinese dancing and cultural learning, cycling and trekking.
