10 Reasons to Stay at Alila Ubud

We Loved it and Here’s Why

Alila Ubud is one of Bali’s most idyllic highland retreats, with gorgeous villas overlooking the Ayung River Valley and the lush rice paddy landscapes of the Payangan village. Secluded and private, the resort is one of the unique of its type in Bali... and that’s saying something. Despite being completely surrounded by nature and away from the crowds, the resort is only five-kilometres from the main Ubud hub, and an hour to Ngurah Rai International Airport in South Bali.

The collection of cosy guestrooms and pool villas at Alila Ubud are enclosed within private stone-walled gardens, and the whole layout is designed to resemble a typical Balinese village. All rooms and villas provide soothing, natural views with the Ayung River rushing below, together with the mountain range on the horizon. Although the photos alone are probably enough to persuade you, here are 10 reasons why you should stay at the incredible Alila Ubud.

Art lovers will find some inspiring pieces at their onsite art gallery, presenting the work of local and international contemporary artists. The space also features rare textile exhibitions and a sculpture garden overlooks the valley – a perfect private spot for a romantic dinner (on request).

Get Active
Alila Ubud

Although sipping on a cocktail whilst getting stuck into a good book might be the most energetic of activities most guests partake in at Alila Ubud, the resort does also offer a range of fun activities too. Try one of their open-air cooking classes or go on an excursion through the jungle if you’re feeling particularly adventurous.

Soak in Unique Bathtubs
Alila Ubud

All of the ultra-luxurious villas have their own large open-air sunken bathtubs, which are uniquely designed inside a lotus pond - great for romantic soak-in moments for two.

Exotic Balinese Village Experience

While the hillside village of Payangan welcomes you to experience an exotic and lush location, the resort was also designed to resemble an idyllic village, combining contemporary design with traditional Balinese architecture.

Dine with a View

While the Cabana Lounge adjacent the magnificent pool offers a great place for chilling out, Plantation Restaurant is the splendid spot where you can enjoy authentic Balinese dishes and selections from a modern French menu inspired by local seasonal ingredients. An open Balinese-style setting with stunning views over the valley provide you with a most memorable Balinese dining experience.
