Hidden away in Bali’s central foothills, a winding path lined with coconut and banana trees opens onto Alila Ubud, a tranquil sanctuary situated high above the Ayung River. Take in the quiet beauty of lush, emerald-green jungle canopy stretching as far as the eye can see—all while being just five kilometers from Bali’s artistic center of Ubud.
Seclusion in Nature
Alila Ubud is a serene retreat offering complete immersion in the verdant landscape of Bali’s central foothills.
Perched along the steep riverbanks of the Ayung River, Alila Ubud takes its layout from a traditional Balinese hillside village. Built on stilts over a ravine, rooms and villas open onto their own private balcony, terrace or garden for introspection in nature.
Explore the lush natural attractions of Bali’s central foothills, awash in peaceful shades of green.
Discover the terraced rice fields of Tegalalang, trek through deep jungle to reach the summit of Mount Batur, and marvel at the ninth-century cave of Goa Gajah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a serene garden.
Bali’s Cultural Heart
Only 15 minutes from the resort gets you to Ubud, which has reigned as the center of Balinese arts and culture for over a century.
Soak up Ubud’s one-of-a-kind artistic energy. Visit artists’ workshops and galleries, and browse notable Balinese paintings and sculptures at Museum Puri Lukisan, the island’s oldest art museum.
A Taste of Bali
Celebrate the flavors of Bali—from market and garden to kitchen and plate.
Dine on authentic Balinese flavors and Western farm-to-table tasting menus under a traditional alang-alang roof, and savor light Southeast Asian-inspired fare overlooking the infinity pool. Master some of the island’s most popular dishes yourself in hands-on classes, which begin by selecting ingredients at the local market and culminate with cooking in the resort’s organic garden.
Our approach to sustainability is two-fold: to minimize our environmental impact, while nurturing economic opportunity within the region.
Alila Ubud takes great pride in recruiting most of our team members from neighboring banjars. We also purchase all of our fruits and vegetables locally, and procure the majority of our Alila Living products, including soaps and shampoos, from village co-operatives supported by the resort. Sourcing locally not only benefits our surrounding communities economically, but also keeps transport-related greenhouse gas emissions to a minimum.
