My final blog post on Alila Villas Uluwatu is on the one bedroom pool villa. Although we made a request for villas on the 4 level, which was the highest, we were assigned to villas on the second level. The view wasn’t good; all we could see was the roofs of the villas on the first level, not even a glimpse of the Indian Ocean. Our butler informed us that villas on level 4 would be available in a couple of hours, so we waited and it was soooo worth it.
Transportation arrived in the form of buggies, which hauled our luggage (and us) to our villas. My in laws stayed in 402 while hubby and I in 406. 401 is the wedding villa. You get a better view of the sunrise the closer you are to the wedding villa.
The stairways to the villas are paved with water features. If you wish to step out of your villa, you can opt to call for buggy, or take a stroll down. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the villa to the restaurants, spa and infinity pool.
Each villa is set within its own walled enclosure and looks low-key from the outside. You’ll be amazed once you get past the door though. The large villa is modern and minimalistic, colored in muted earth tones, and has an open-plan room layout that makes it feel even more spacious.
The first furniture from the door is the study desk, with a Samsung tablet, where you can select movies (that will sync to the television) and browse the in-villa dining menu, as well as Cire’s and The Warung’s menus. It also has information on activities, as well as a message system for guests to communicate with staff. Before leaving our villa for breakfast and dinner, I will leave a message to inform reception that we’ll be away, so that they can proceed with housekeeping and turndown service. In the evenings, staff will close the shutters of the floor to ceiling windows, so that the streaming sunlight will not disturb your sleep the next morning.
Ahhh…the wonderfully soft and comfortable bed. On the bedside table, you’ll find thoughtful amenities- Spa Alila essential oil pillow mist and lip balms for him and her. Behind the bed is a lovely water feature. At the other end of the room, is a daybed, perfect for lackadaisical afternoons.
Lighting is designed to control mood; the controls are near the bed.
In the middle of the room, there’s a dining table (not pictured) in front of an oversized LED TV. Beside the TV, you’ll find a coffee machine, and TWG teabags. There’s also a minibar, but it’s not complimentary.
The well-appointed bathroom features his and her sinks, dressing table, an open wardrobe (with beach bag, beach mat, rattan fans and sun hat), indoor shower with side jets body jets, outdoor shower with rain shower head and Spa Alila toiletries.
The highlight of the villa is undoubtedly the pool and cabana. We spent a great deal of time unwinding in the pool, as well as lounging around admiring the sunrise, pink skies during dusk, and watching the sparkling stars studding the blanket of darkness.
It’s truly an invigorating experience to be surrounded with such immense beauty every single day, and needless to say, we found it difficult getting back into the daily grind after such lazy days in paradise. For private villa perfection, look no further than Alila Villas Uluwatu!
