A sliver of an infinity edge pool which goes from an intoxicating emerald colour on Ubud’s misty mornings to sapphire blue in the afternoon sun, it gives the appearance of overhanging the plummeting valley below soaking up panoramic views of Ubud’s lush, forested hillsides.
Alila Ubud benefits from its distance from the town, becoming something of a haven when you’re done playing with, haggling with local artisans and listening to jazz.
YAHOO! – 2015
Nestled among the jungle-laden, undulating hills of Ubud, Bali, lies a sanctuary that does things differently. At luxury eco retreat Alila ubud, and entirely holistic approach is taken when it comes to environmental measures. Seriously holistic.
Alila Ubud is a must - try for the nature and peace lover – they sit nestled within mountain greenery, floating above a river valley and dense forest.
I was blown away by the sight of a picturesque green valley covered in lush topical vegetation. I learned later that Alila Ubud sits high up on the edge of the Ayung River valley. I was distracted by the infinity pool. I felt I had seen this pool before! Then it struck me, I had seen it featured in several online lists of top 25 infinity pools in the world.

We care for good food, food that incorporates local traditions, recipes that have been passed on for hundreds of years and healthy food that is local.

Our Terrace Tree Villa, overlooking the verdant valley. The best seat in the house is in the pool-sized bathtub, from where I watched the monkeys swing athletically from branch to branch only metres away as I soaked. The market was an explosion of colour and we ate as much as we bought as chef taught us how to identify exotic fruits such as red lychee-esque rambutans and bright olive-shaped tamarillos.

Land und Leute kennenlernen: oftversprochen, doc him… Alila Ubud ist das Teil der Hotelphilosophic. Das Resort legt besonderen Wert auf die Forderung un Integration der Bevolkerung. So besehaftigt es fast nur einheimische.

The infinity pool is suspended over the jungle high above the Ayung river below. The view stretches endlessly into Bali’s lush tropical rainforest.
The Spa Man, UK 2014
The centrepiece is a stunning tongue of pool jutting out like a high-dive board over the Ayung gorge. The Alila is serene and professional with a laid-back ambience. There are 54 rooms set in separate two-storey arrangements on stilts, looking out over the valley.

The reflective swimming pool at this secluded hillside retreat - a fusion of modern and traditional design that blends thatched roofs with clean, concrete lines - seems to float above the deep Ayung River valley below.
Forbes, USA - January 2011
Alila Ubud is a deluxe retreat in Bali's cultural hinterland where energy consumption has been reduced and wastewater virtually eliminated by being purified through rice fields.

Guest Testimonials

We can’t thank the team at Alila Ubud enough for what an amazing wedding weekend we had at the resort. We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful, low-stress and perfect day. Throughout the weekend all of our guests went on and on about how incredible the staff at the resort were.

A huge thank you to all of the staff that work at the Alila in Ubud. We got married in July and spent 11 nights in Bali, 3 of which we had the pleasure of spending at your fantastic hotel.
Mr. Andrew Harris
The staff were amazing, very friendly and always with a smile on their faces, they are also very helpful. Last point to mention, the food is so tasty and good, it felt great not having to worry of what to cook tonight myself grin We recommend Alila Ubud a 100% to visit.

We staid in allila ubud for 3 days... Amazing swimming pool, excellent service and staff and the most beautifull view into the jungle and the rice fields! The food is also delicious and you really schould try the 'ice table'!!! Best sorbet ever... Luxury in the middle of the jungle!

The hotel grounds are beautiful, it is seriously a hidden gem. We thought the attention to detail was excellent, they offered a sit down (no buffet) style breakfast which was a pleasant change. The hotel offers frequent shuttle busses to Ubud central so you can enjoy the dining experiences outside the hotel, I would recommend bridges for dinner. Stay here if you want a tranquil experience, much different to that of other areas of Bali.

The Balinese cuisine in the restaurant was excellent, the breakfasts extensive and cooked to order, and the service excellent. Not to forget the fantastic infinity pool overlooking the valley below.
"cathhhyyyyyyy", Manchester
Amazing views, amazing pool, amazing staff (thanks Yuni), amazing food & amazing service. We recommend that you experience this truly wonderful hotel. Even the local wildlife came to entertain you. You need not leave the hotel complex as every need is catered for. I even heard another guest comment the best massage she has ever had. So peaceful, relaxing, my only grumble is we did not book for a longer stay
"Lousue2014", Australia
We spoiled ourselves here staying only 1 night during a 3-week vacation in Bali. Alila was (by far) our favourite stay, and well worth the expense. The infinity pool was bliss and the restaurant's food was incredible. Service was exceptional.
"Biker_and_Runner", Canada
This hotel was the first stop for our honeymoon in Bali and all I can say is that it was the perfect place to your relaxation after all the stresses of the wedding. The service was amazing, everyone was extremely friendly and always out to please and help you.

Alila Ubud is a beautiful setting with first rate accommodations. The welcome upon arrival was wonderful, really set the mood, greeting me by name, and providing very personal attention. I was traveling alone, so the attention was particularly important. Service was impeccable throughout my stay.
