I was expecting magical things fro Alila Ubud following all the hype about the hotel. The pool, of course, was pretty special and I can see why it consistently features on 'best hotel in the world' lists. I was surprised to see though that the view from the infinity pool does over look many other buildings in the hills which... More

A wonderful hotel in an amazing setting, would definitely go back again. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the food in the restaurant was brilliant. We couldn't fault any of it and the pool overlooking the valley was the best pool we've ever seen, especially with the monkeys climbing in the trees during late afternoon.

No mistake - this is a great property to stay for 3 or 4 nights if you just want to chill out. The building itself is unique - blending into the side of forested valley with open plan reception, restaurant, infinity pool with bar, very nice bedrooms with outside showers and baths, great spa, and a wonderful peaceful aura about...

Stayed here for a few days I remember not wanting to leave at all. The rice terraces, lush forest and zen-like ambiance work wonders to recharge the tired city dweller. Not forgetting the pool...simple sublime. Indeed one of the best hotels I have stayed in recent times.

We spent three nights of our honeymoon in a Pool Villa here and it is a stunning place to be. The Pool Villas are beautiful. Set in it's own walled garden room 404 is a detached villa with large bedroom/sitting room, dominated by the huge centrally situated bed. The bed faces the patio doors out on to your pool and...

Everything about the place is wonderful....staff, grounds, pool, and the breakfasts are to die for!! If you are wanting a quiet, relaxing beautiful place to stay (just a short shuttle or taxi ride from Ubud) - this place I can highly... More

Set 15 mins from Ubud town this hotel was in the perfect setting surrounded by greenery. I was initially given the superior room but this was quiet small and felt basic I upgraded to the valley villa definitely worth the extra money as it had more space the decor was better and the Panoramic windows heightened the experience. This hotel... More
