Beautiful sunsets. Beautifully designed villas. Comfortable beds and sofas. Restaurant staff who remembers your drink preferences. Attentive host and villa staff ready to cater to your every need. One can get used to such a life. Only downside is the long car ride to anywhere else on the island.

This was our first trip to Bali and I fear it has set such a high standard that we will not be able to stay anywhere else the next time we go.

This is a tranquil location set onwards of an hour and a half drive from Seminyak and Kuta, but believe me, once you get there you don't want to leave to go into the high tourist areas of Bali. The resort has everything you need, just there (we left to go on a couple of pre-booked tours to the the high tourist areas and didn't enjoy them as much as relaxing at the resort).

The architecture of the place itself is stunning and simply breathe-taking as you enter. We felt a little overwhelmed initially, but within just a couple of days it started to feel like home. While the location and rooms are amazing in their own right, we would go back there because of the staff. They were incredibly helpful, friendly, social and efficient and went above and beyond for us.
The food is excellent and top restaurant quality, and the prices are reasonable given the remoteness from the main centre of Bali.
Our room (One-bedroom Beach Pool Villa) was amazing and incredibly spacious, with our own pool literally outside the lounge room doors and the beach itself was only 100m away (not a swimming beach though).

We stayed there for 7 nights and were very, very sad to leave. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Room Tip: We stayed in the One-bedroom Beach Pool Villa. We were escorted through all the rooms during our st...

After having experienced Alila Villas Uluwatu we now enjoy Alila Villas Soori. This hotel chain should be kept secret ! Alila is heaven ! Simply the best hotel chain ever experienced. Tranquility, top personal service, incredible architecture, top Michelin star food, beautiful large pool villas. Just can't wait to try the other resorts.

This was our first trip to Bali, and the first two nights we spent at Alila Soori. Understandably it's not to everyone's taste, especially the dangerous, non-swimming beach. On the other hand, we were happy to open all windows (no bugs) and enjoy the pounding surf just a couple of hundred feet away. The "villa" was superlative, with amenities such as a private pool, an outdoor shower, a comfortably furnished lanai, etc. Food was terrific - just try the local fare. Why stick to "western" food after flying thousands of miles to get to Bali..? Breakfast also included local specialties. There is not much to do at the resort. which itself is in the middle of nowhere, but that suited us just fine. One rather unique (free) attraction, though, is a small cave in a cliff at the end of the beach, where hundreds of small bats roost during the day. Then, around 6pm, as if on cue, they all fly out of the cave, much like a flock of starlings, to go hunting bugs. The show's over in 30 seconds, but it's much fun. Definitely one of the best resorts we've every stayed at.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room on the second floor - to protect your privacy...

We stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely have no regrets. The service was spectacular! I have to admit that I'm definitely not of those easy to please clients and they have indeed done an excellent job! I do not have any particular name of staff to quote as they are all good. We stayed one night at the mountain pool villa and 2nd night at the beach front villa. Close to 2 hours after we have checked in to the beach front villa, the housekeeping staff rang our door bell. My careless husband has left his wallet, our passport and an Audemars Piguet watch left in our previous villa. He was shocked and the same time thankful for their honesty. During our second day, we took a walk at the black beach, and we realized there were a few locals walking around at the beach area as compared to the first day. After checking w the staff, we were told that it is Bali's celebration - and a public holiday, so many people went for prayers at the nearby temple and therefore, took an evening walk at the beach area. Later in the evening, feeling rather uncomfortable as we are staying at the beach front villa, I was paranoid and afraid of trepasses. I called up my the front office, and they have assured me that they have guards stationed for watching and standby along the beach area. Im absolutely please to hear that. Food was great! service is spectacular. Everything is so personalised. highly recommended
