Just returned from 10 days in Bali and spent 4 nights at the Alila in Candidasa. From the minute you arrive, it is evident that service is first and foremost for the staff. Rather than standing at a reception desk they come to greet you, sit you down in the beautiful open air lobby, give you a wonderful refreshing drink ,and bring the paperwork to you!
The rooms have all of the amenties that most travellers need or have come to expect in a resort - mini bar, robe, slippers, hair dryer (and ladies what a hair dryer-not a cheapie but a first class salon style dryer), turn down service with flowers and cookies on your pillow. Coffee, tea and water are free of charge.
The rooms have shampoo, conditioner, bath wash and moisturizer. But since Alila is a 'green' hotel there is no plastic for them. Each day those items are refilled in lovely ceramic jars.
The morning breakfast which was included in the cost was not just a roll and coffee. But instead included an incredible plate of fresh local fruit, glasses of fresh fruit juice, a basket of wonderful croissants and rolls, coffee/tea, and then your choice of an 'entre'. The servings on the entre were so large they filled you up the whole day. You could choose from western type selections (eggs, omelets, granola, etc.) or local Bali stye dishes such as Rice Cereal (incredible) or Nasi goreng (another rice dish served all day long).
The hotel also offers many daily activities - some are free and others do have a cost. Especially nice if you are out by the pool is the 'free' mini massage (a tease for the spa) and the afternoon tea and balinese pastries.
Loved Bali and when I return I will be staying at the Alila again.
