Blending in with the surrounding natural environment, the design of the interiors at Alila Villas Uluwatu is completely integrated with the architecture, seamlessly flowing from inside to outside.

Ranging from 300 sqm to 3,000 sqm, the resort’s pool villas are all about generous private space, incredible comfort and views. Gorgeous interiors blend clean lines and contemporary style with accents of Bali. An open-concept design embraces the outdoors while guaranteeing undisturbed privacy.

Alila Villas Uluwatu follows a dedicated environmental and social sustainability policy that cultivates eco-friendly concepts through environmentally sustainable design principles. 

  • Water conservation : Installation of the soak away rainwater tanks, recyclable grey water system that directs used water through reverse osmosis tanks to be re-used throughout the property. plants mostly used in the surrounding landscape require minimum irrigation, thus reducing water wastage. 
  • Energy consumption is kept to a minimum : Using recycled materials such as wood from railway sleepers and telephone poles and unique design of each villa with use of the lava rocks roof, bamboo ceiling and windows placement which encourage air-flow and minimize the use of lights and air- conditioning. 
  • Locally sourced all building materials : Local bamboo used for the ceilings, lime stones from the site, which is hand cut for the garden walls. Locally sourced lava rocks used for the roofs of each villa. 
  • Natural environment : Local plants from the Uluwatu Bali savannah ecosystem on the Bukit are raised in a nursery on site to encourage local bird and animal life. 
  • Integrated architectural design : Alila Villas Uluwatu’s landscaping and architectural forms were derived from the local Bali savannah-like environment without intruding on the wild and seasonal surroundings. Using the idea of Bali’s rocky terrace fields and lush gulley, the architects have created architecture of terraced planes, which protect cool gardens. 
  • Sustainability Lab : The centrepiece of our Zero Waste Policy is an on-site laboratory where all waste streams are transformed into higher value products and services through a series of simple yet proven mechanical and biological engineering systems. From producing our own compost to our glass recycling programme and organic garden, this site is built to accommodate our efforts to create a better environment.
