“Three Bedroom Rare Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

This review was extended stay from my previous review "Heavenly Hideaway". So I will not describe too detail, just see my one bed room previous review. This Time I will give you three bed room pictures.

Recommended: Absolutely YES, if you can afford it...
Return To Sleep: Yes, I think AVU is the best in Bukit Peninsula, or even Bali (same quality with old lady Amankila - same owner with AVU, but different management).

As usual, I always include photos in each of my reviews on Tripadvisor. - It's Real Review.

Room Tip: For family, take the three bedroom - it's cliff side house. For the view, it's better than o...

I'm old enough to remember when Amandari first opened in Bali, and the novelty gave it the necessary wow factor. Decades later, we've been pampered by the "Aman" concept and there have been copycats everywhere, some better, most not.
Alila is a generic Aman. It is clean, modern and has the necessary amenities (views, infinity pool, attentive staff, etc.). Each villa has its own small pool, gazebo and well-appointed bathroom (including an outdoor shower). The staff is incredibly friendly and the food is incredibly bad. What made me feel like I was in a futuristic villa resort was how each villa, row by each manicured row, was identical. I almost expected the buggies that took us around to be remote operated. . .

Room Tip: Get a villa in row "1". Closer to the main building (restaurants and pool).

Alila Uluwatu marked my first experience staying in a villa, and I couldn't pick for a better place. From the villa's secluded location, indoor-outdoor Balinese contemporary lobby design to the scenic infinite pools overlooking azure ocean views, all dotted by ubiquitous wooden-decked cabana, Alila is simply a feast in my eyes. In fact, I would rate Alila Uluwatu as one the very best and most distinctive Balinese contemporary villa in bali.

The experience? Couldn't be more satisfactory. Upon arrival, me and my brother were enthusiastically greeted by Nikki who sprayed our faces with a facial mist (first time we had this) before proceeding with the reservation. After that, We was ushered and introduced to each and every facility of the villa including the lobby, pool, cabana, restaurants, library, spa and a villa which was the last stop. I recalled feeling so relaxed and serene whilst visiting the above spots - as if the aura of Alila Uluwatu entering every pores of my skin.

Our villa was one-bedroom villa which was very spacious (291 m2) complete with private pool, cabana (overlooking hills), two separate vanity area, lounge chair, wardrobe, bathup and outdoor shower as well as living room featuring iPod dock with an iPod full of songs from Pop, RnB, Techno to Jazz, Easy Listening and Traditional genre (a brilliant idea as music hugely influences a guest's mood - thus, thumbs up!). So we turned on the music, sat and looked around our room savoring our surroundings. Then, we headed into the backyard and started relaxing on the cabana whilst soaking up in the sun before dipping into the pool for several photo-taking sessions.

For the full two days, we were indulging ourselves like never before either by savoring lunch at The Warung eatery, sunbathing by the pool and dipping into it (plus sea-gazing), listening to music while absorbing the beauty of the villa's scenery, taking a leisure stroll around the vila, snapping pics and orchestrating an impromptu photoshoot, dancing around the pool, showering outdoor, chowing down dinner at CIRE restaurant or browsing the internet in our room. It's, hands down, the most peaceful and tranquil time I had ever had.

At night, I would hear the rain dropped behind my bed when I was sleeping, and also the audiophile music which complimented the "tick tick tick" sound of the raindrops - l was lucky, it rained. That night I had the most glorious sleep in my life. It felt like being married with nature (now I know why they place a small garden behind the bed. Again, a brilliant idea).

Next, a lot of people complimented the service for being attentive yet unobtrusive. Yes, it's true. Whenever I wanted to lie down on the lounge chair by the pool, the staff always placed a towel on the chair prior to use, and since I carried a bag with me, they would place a towel on another chair prior and put my bag on it. To top it off, they would bring a bag full of amenities from facial mist, sunblock and body lotion plus empty glasses and bottles of water and leave it near my lounge chair. To make things even better, they would stand several meters behind me far enough to grant a personal space yet close enough to watch out my belongings so I didn't have to worry about losing it. What an exceptional service, indeed.

Last words, you know how perfect a villa is when you found a few glitches along the way (the price of the food was rather stiff for its taste) yet still give it a five star on a trip advisor since the faults did not matter any longer due to being eclipsed by the mind-blowing overall experience. And Alila Uluwatu is the perfect example of that.

P.S: It's impossible to take bad pictures here. Aww!

We stayed a week at Alila Uluwatu in August last year and really had an excellent and wonderful stay! We got the relaxing break we were looking for.

Staff is extremely helpful and friendly, property is extremely stylish and beautiful, view is fantastic, food is excellent,...

If there is one remark, then it is that breakfast should be included in the room rate. The hotel is in an isolated area and guests have almost no other choice than to have breakfast in the hotel (at a high price).

We stayed there in around Oct 2013, it was for a niece wedding.
The wedding was perfect, with amazing view of the cliff ,ocean and sunset. The room is very modern and nice, the bathroom is very lovely, wonderful private pool with amazing view, and personal services to the guests made us feel so special. The breakfast is also perfect.
Thank you Alila for giving us a wonderful staying experience!

We just came back from our honeymoon at this beautiful hotel. It was everything we'd dreamed of. Our own pool, lounging area, the most amazing room and bathroom. After the madness of the wedding it was just what we needed. The staff were lovely but unobtrusive, food was good and then we discovered Seminyak. It's abt 45 minutes away in a taxi if the traffic is good but we went about 4 times. What an amazing place! Wld definitely recommend.

I really really enjoyed my stay here. Away from the hustle bustle, elegant place and it's simply perfect. I don't think i can express my feelings while i'm there through words.It's perfect!
Our private butler Marta is the best, nothing is hard for him to please our stay over there.The view from common pool is picturesque, our villa is just beautifully designed, the amenities in our villa is impeccable.
Both Cire and Warung restaurant are awesome, they're food is amazingly yummy.
Had my birthday dinner at Cire restaurant and had a great surprise from the staff. Really love love love that i almost cried myself LOL even the chef himself came out to ask how's everything going.
Upon checked out Marco the manager greeted us. Felt really appreciated with all the greetings from all the staff.
Since we had couple of hiccups the night before, upon checked out Marta taken care of everything, he even scratch out our dinner bills.
Alila ensure that their guest having a great time and receive great and excellent service from them. We could not ask for more,had my best birthday ever in Alila. Will definitely recommend Alila to everyone in Darwin :)
Thank you bli Marta and everyone for making us feel special while we're there.
Keep up the good work mate!
