We stayed at the Alila for the first week of our honeymoon. I had done a lot of research into the hotels so I knew what to expect when arriving but I didn't expect that reception had no idea that it was our honeymoon until a couple of days into our trip... A bit disappointing!!! Suffice to say we did not get any upgrades as other honeymooners did or the daily baked goods in our room but that was fine by us. We were there to relax and be looked after.
The food in General was very good and we enjoyed the breakfast each morning. We also had a romantic meal for 2 down past the pool in the cabana which was truly magical! Would recommend :) we also loved the afternoon tea treats by the pool which was around the time the monkey came out to play.
The room I have to say was average and we weren't blown away. The view was OK but the doors were quite annoying leading out to the balcony and had annoying latches at he bottom which were hard to open/close. Also, the toilet door wasn't very private!! As a married couple it was ok for us but a little privacy would be better... I think having read the reviews a pool villa would have been better for us. Maybe next time!
As for the staff, they really are an asset to the hotel. We especially liked Putu who took us out on our trips to Ubud and the rice fields. He was so much fun!! The other staff are of course lovely too and made our stay a very pleasurable one. Janice was also very nice.
I would go back to the Alila but I wouldn't stay in the classic room.
