We just finished a stay at the Alila Uluwatu and I must say that the highlight of the stay was having dinner at the restaurant "Cire" and their out-of-this-world chef who came from Jakarta (he's Dutch, trained in Amsterdam). We had the 7-course tasting menu and it was absolutely delicious. You can choose your own courses from his list, or he can do the choosing for you. A few dishes were his in-house smoked fish, a variation on Peking duck, snow crab with an infused froth, chilled tomato soup, carrot cake with ice cream, and a hot molten chocolate cake that was mouth-watering! We actually came BACK to eat here whilst staying at the Bulgari resort just up the road - the food was THAT good. I believe in future we will see this chef obtain a Michelin star - wait for it, it is in the cards. We cannot imagine a trip to Bali now without going to this restaurant. We used to love Mosaic whilst in Bali - our favourite is now "Cire"!
The resort itself is beautiful and vast, with outstanding architecture and excellent and friendly staff. The cliff view is gorgeous. The villas themselves are lovely with a good-sized pool and comfy bed. The butler service was also very good and was the "real deal" (unlike the so-called butlers at Ritz-Carlton's cliff villas). Very good value for money in Bali and we will be returning in future!
