Alila Villas Uluwatu

ON OUR RADAR / Alila Uluwatu

Alila Villas Uluwatu at the rugged southernmost tip of Bali, a surfer’s paradise, wows at every turn. Sleek and contemporary, with warm Balinese flair, one-two- and three-bedroom villas overlook the ocean and come with personal butler and infinity pool.

Need a little R&R? Perched above the sea this resort boasts a stunning infinity pool flanked by architectural, “woven” cabanas, a gorgeous spa and a lounge that hangs over the cliff edge.

Looking for an adventure? One of the great delights of travel is exploring the regional cuisine, and in many countries this means the vibrant street food scene. The resort invites five local street food chefs to the hotel once a week. They cook at carts, known as kaki lima, set up in the beautiful outdoor sculpture garden and create these Indonesian delicacies using all locally sourced ingredients provided by Alila.

Want to join #THECARRYONEFFECT? Have a go at ordering your own dishes, from the Mie Ayam (chicken noodles) to Martabak (stuffed savory pancake). Top off the meal with fresh coconut cocktails and cold Indonesian beer.
