Cliff Drama ~ Bali in a brand new light

This is Bali like you’ve never seen before. No verdant paddy fields in sight, no beachfront with waves splashing in rhythm just steps outside your villa, and no view of Bali’s majestic volcano, Mt. Agung.

This side of Bali has more in common with Santorini in Greece, Galapagos Island, or Okavango Delta in Botswana. Dry savannah with a flora to match, a soothing coastal breeze flora to balance out the scorching heat – but most of all – dramatic cliff formation that drops to dizzying lows overlooking the azure waters of Bali. A sight few have witnessed. This is Bali’s Mediterranean side.

Welcome to Uluwatu, in Jimbaran area which leads to Bukit Peninsula in Bali’s southern side. A mere 20 minutes from the airport, but eons away from your typical Bali. Bukit Peninsula has been discovered and those in the know have secretly anointed it as Bali’s new “IT” destination.

Alila Villas Uluwatu worked with this dramatic landscape as its canvas to create a work of art that could capture its beauty and present a look and feel that says “Bali” in a decidedly different way – the modernist approach without forgetting Bali’s DNA. The result is what is probably Bali’s most dramatic looking hotel to date.

Alila is fast gaining a reputation for stylish hotels that don’t scream boutique for simply looking gorgeous, but are bringing to the forefront a new breed of hotels with a conscious eco-oriented heart. Alila’s mission  is to blend in and bring positive impact to both the immediate environment and community wherever it plants its hotel flag, across South East Asia and the Middle East.

Alila Villas Uluwatu was conceived by Singapore-based Architecture firm, WOHA.
