Alila Ubud is located in Payangan, three miles (five kilometres) from Ubud Palace, art galleries, and the Monkey Forest. This hotel is a secluded hillside retreat that sits high up on the edge of the rich green Ayung River valley in Bali's central foothills.
Alila Ubud was designed to look like a Balinese hillside village, with a community center and pedestrian walkways. The resort features an award-winning outdoor pool. The dramatic emerald-green pool is perched on a terrace and appears to float above the plunging Ayung River valley below. The pool is surrounded by stone-tiled sun decks that feature comfortable sun-beds with attractive Balinese umbrellas. The hotel's Spa Alila features a villa, pavilion and suites, some with open-air treatment areas and bathrooms with waterfall showers. The facility also provides manicure and pedicure salons and a spa reception area. For the business traveler, this hotel offers meeting facilities, business services and complimentary wireless Internet access. An onsite restaurant is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A complimentary full breakfast is included. Relax also at the poolside lounge. Secure parking is available during guests' stay, and airport and local shuttle service can be arranged (surcharges apply). Tours of the surrounding area can be arranged by Alila Ubud's leisure concierge. They include trips to the mountain village of Kintamani, the spectacular rice terraces at Tegalalang, the natural springs at Tampaksiring, Ubud’s galleries, museums and souvenir shops, and the village of Petulu, home to a large flock of white egrets. Complimentary parking is available for vehicles.
Perched on stilts, the resort’s rooms and villas sit above a ravine along the banks of the river valley.
