Having originally booked at the Four Seasons we decided to be cost conscious and on advice of our travel agent plumped for the Alila and we are so glad we did. The hotel was small enough to ensure personal attention for the guests. The room was stunning with views over the local temple and jungle and the delightful breakfasts looking over the valley were magical. We had 1 deeply unpleasant experience (with a man in the next room who complained aggressively when out 5 year old was crying briefly at 10pm, rattling our bedroom door nearly off it's hinges and being very threatening and invasive ). The hotel staff were wonderful when they heard - they are very understanding and the managers on duty were extremely sympathetic having small children themselves. They actually moved us to a wonderful pool suite so we didn't have to "be near people like that". We loved the peaceful atmosphere - how refreshing not to have music pumping out by the pool. We also had wonderful massages at the spa and a real hi-light of the trip had to be our 2 days out with Puriyana from the concierge who took us on 2 wonderful tours of the rice fields, volcano and an informal trip to his village - the most magical experiences. We will be definitely returning.
