Alila Villas Uluwatu

    Two months after the Bali provincial administration placed a temporary moratorium on permits for new hotel construction, Alila Villas Uluwatu opened on the island’s Bukit Peninsula. The 35-acre compound is nestled into a cliff-top landscape of limestone and native vegetation that requires little or no watering. In fact, it is the only resort development in Bukit that does not truck in water. Sustainability efforts extend to the resort’s saltwater infinity pool, which uses a reverse-osmosis system. The pool stretches for 50 meters to the edge of a cliff that overlooks the Indian Ocean. Accommodations Each of the 84 spacious villas (made from local materials) affords ocean views and features a private pool and cabana. Dining Warung serves authentic Indonesian cuisine, while CIRE, helmed by chef Stefan Szijta, features seafood with a Western bent. Facilities A spa with five treatment villas. Rates From $562 per night.
