Alila is a beautiful hotel set in an amazing setting. It is very quite and tranquil there and truly relaxing. It is close to central Ubud and there is a shuttle offered from the hotel. But it is only about a $10 taxi ride if you miss the shuttle. Going into Ubud is a great experience, catch the Balinese dancers after dinner while there.
Alila's staff was very friendly and helpful.
You can book excursions directly through the hotel at a reasonable rate. We did a biking tour, The Alila Challenge which was amazing. This bike tour that was lead through the countryside of central Bali with a visit to a Balinese home and market. You can also take the bikes on your own tour which they have maps at the front desk to guide you.
We also did the white water rafting trip, this was a trip down the Ayung river and was also really great.
The grounds were very well kept in an amazing setting (along with a family of monkeys that we saw most mornings), the pool is as advertised on all the photos and the food was outstanding.
A nice place to stay, close to Ubud without being in the chaos of the city. Many reviews noted that this resort was quite far from Ubud, reality was it was about 15 minutes away. We would usually take the hotel shuttle into Ubud and a cab back to the hotel.
