Alila Ubud is steeped in the Balinese spirit: the hillside buildings of the hotel resemble a local village layout, the distinctly humanist design style draws from the Balinese architectural traditions—and the otherworldly infinity pool appears to float above the valley, revealing the mystical ingredient of the Bali experience.
Located high above the Ayung River, on the outskirts of Bali’s cultural heartland, this secluded and tranquil hillside retreat owes its understated design to the world-renowned studio Kerry Hill Architects.
The hotel seamlessly fuses natural with contemporary elements: straw roofs brush against the smooth plaster walls, terracotta tiles merge with gravel and crushed rock—and wood meets glass.
Rooms and villas
The 56 rooms are housed in 14 blocks, arranged to ensure panoramic views of the magical Ayung valley. The lower floor rooms feature individual garden terraces and have a back courtyard with an open-air bathroom and shower. The upper floor rooms enclose a private balcony—and have the best views.
The 12 freestanding villas offer privacy and tranquility in the Pool Villas, nestled within a private garden with pool; delightful views over the lush green Ayung River valley in the Valley Villas; and lots of private space (120 sqm), coupled with the most amazing views in the Terrace Tree Villas, hidden above the breezy jungle canopy.
Body and spirit
Thanks to the towering coconut pillars and tall thatched roof, the brasserie-style Plantation restaurant feels bright and open. Its kitchen specializes in artfully prepared healthy, natural Balinese cuisine.
This healthy theme is carried on in the Spa Alila, where unique treatments blend ancient Asian healing practices with beauty recipes that feature freshly prepared ingredients.
Alila Ubud hints at Bali’s spiritual dimension with its world-famous, instantly recognizable 25-metre infinity pool. Its surface reflects the ever-changing Ubud sky, its smooth edge looks out to the green valley, often cloaked in mist. The pool is the most dramatic element of the resort.
