This hotel is breath taking from its architectural ingenuity, to its stunning views and tremendous service.

This place is an oasis, hidden from the chaotic hustling of Kuta and the constant barrage of tourists. Uluwatu is about 30 minutes from Kuta and about 1 hour from Seminyak (depending on traffic).

During our stay the staff and Shaun (General Manager) made us feel so very welcome, and went out of their way to make our 5 day visit memorable for all the right reasons.

The hotel is perched high above the Indian Ocean, offering fantastic yoga classes, great food choices (from traditional to international) and even better cocktails. The villas boast a private pool, cabanas, day beds, indoor and outdoor showers. If you are feeling fit definitely go for a wander to the rockpools / beach below the resort.

There are many beautiful surfing spots in Uluwatu just waiting to be discovered ... and Alila is the perfect base to explore the area and wider Bali.

Alila Uluwatu is a place you will never want to leave.

I do not have the vocabulary to rightfully describe how wonderful and perfect Alila Uluwatu is. It is a must if traveling in the area and a must see (stay) at least once in your lifetime. A hotel of this calibre is upward of US $2000 a night anywhere else in the world. If you feel like you need some R&R please fly from where ever you are to visit this 7 star oasis.

We enjoyed five blissful nights in this beautiful hotel in a stunning location. The area is perfect for my surfer husband and I couldn't have been happier enjoying the hotel facilities while he was touring the local beaches. There was plenty to enjoy from the wonderful complimentary morning yoga classes, the relaxing spa facilities, the truly indulgent breakfasts and relaxing by the main pool or in your own pool suite. We both loved the quieter location of Uluwatu and the cliff views yet we travelled into Seminyak and Nusa Dua to enjoy some of their world class restaurants too. Next time we'll be happy to stay in more and avoid the traffic jams as the food in house is delicious and the service second to none in Bali. I have to endorse that the Management team are exceptional, Sean the GM definitely shows his presence in a warm and friendly style and this reflects the service standards of the entire staff who aim to please but in a warm and genuine manner. Our butler Eddie was terrific, waking my husband early each morning and ensuring he got his morning coffee before Warung was even open. We know this will not be our last stay at Alila Uluwatu!

Amazing backdrop and cliff views, Alila Uluwatu has all that a five star resort would offer.

However, there were obvious signs of age in the villa and although commanding a high end price point in a country and compiund where land is plentiful, Alila could have provided bigger garden area for their villas, as well as maintained the plants better, as they were all dried and yellow all around

Breakfast was great and bathroom amenities were wonderful, but restaurant failed to bring out the true Indonesian cuisine.

Overall beautiful common areas but not worth the USD800 per night.

Room Tip: All rooms were similar, just difference of 1 or 3 bedrooms and all rooms overlook the ocean at a distance.

After four nights in Seminyak we were hoping for a bit of serenity and Alila Uluwatu certainly supplied that. Exceptional Balinese service and amenities including an excellent spa. Also great food at both restaurants, although we preferred The Warung for dinner. The private and shared pools kept us occupied most days, but it was also simple to be driven 5 minutes to a neighbouring resort for some days at a private beach.
For something different I also recommend the exercise and experience of walking down the steep stairs to rockpools below Alila: the amount of sea-life in these staggered me (who was brought up combing the rock-pools off Australia's southern coast), and included a little octopus that contentedly crawled from one pool to another whilst I watched, merrily changing its colours in the process. Having made friends via smiles and handwaves with a local rock fisherman I could have returned daily simply to absorb.
Lovely part of Bali overall and would definitely go back.
