This was our second stay, the last was in 2003. We had forgotten what a great place this is.
From the personal greetings by Dewa and his amazing team to chef Santika and his superb menu and desire to ensure that everyone is catered for. We had just had a less than mediocre food experience at another hotel so upon arrival at Alila we were thrilled to see a menu that included fantastic local dishes as well as fusion and some staple western dishes (but done with style). We soon learnt that a lot of the ingredients are organic and locally produced. The breakfast menu is exceptional and there are daily specials. We tried as many different dishes as possible without a disappointment.
We encourage Alila to produce a cook book, Chef Santika has a lot to offer!
This Kerry Hill designed resort has not dated and looks fresh if not better after sixteen years. It is a good size and does not feel crowded even when at capacity. The large central pool is pleasant with attentive service and it is also worth grabbing a sun lounge over by the beach and taking a dip there don't be afraid of small amounts of seaweed.
Alila also has an interesting environmental program including an initiative to encourage recycling education and waste collection in the local community. It would be good to see more information about progress and achievements of this program posted regularly on the Alila website.
This hotel is excellent value and worth a long weekend mini break return soon.
