And The Award Goes To... Alila Villas Uluwatu
01 July 2011
Super stylish Balinese hideaway adds RIBA award to its collection. Alila Villas Uluwatu has been awarded a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) international award for architectural excellence. One of just 13 international buildings selected, the all-villa resort on Bali’s Bukit peninsula is also the only hotel amongst the winners, described as a ‘star studded cast of imaginative and breathtaking buildings’.
Since opening in late 2009, Alila Villas Uluwatu has gained international attention for its contemporary style, striking cliff-top location and innovative combination of design and eco-credentials, as the first resort in Bali to achieve EarthCheck (formerly Green Globe) certification for building, planning and design.
Designed by Singapore based architects WOHA, who were also recognised by RIBA for their work on the School of the Arts in Singapore, the accolade is the latest in a string of awards for Alila Villas Uluwatu, following a much-coveted World Architecture award for ‘Best Holiday Building’ and Gold Key award for ‘Best Hotel Design’ last year.
Set in a stunning cliff-top location on southern Bali’s Bukit peninsula, high above one of the world’s best surf breaks, Alila Villas Uluwatu’s striking contemporary style extends throughout the one, two and three-bedroom villas with private pools, dramatic dining locations, and world-class spa offering a truly remarkable resort experience.
