The time I spent at Alila was superlative. The Mountain View Villa I stayed in was beautifully appointed within, every amenity and service delivered with my comfort and relaxation in mind. The personal bathroom products use pure essential oils and it shows.
Without, the private pool, relaxation deck and view across lush rice fields to cloud wrapped mountains provided a frame for me to melt into... hours lost just gazing, dipping in and out of the pool, reading.
The Spa is really special at Alila, and this is in the land of spas! The environment they have created is unique and the massage was one of the best I have ever had in my life. My body felt re-invented.
On my last day I went to a morning yoga class with a really good teacher - a Balinese man named Komang - whose name is worth mentioning. His instruction was clear, concise and confident and his sequencing was fresh and inventive. The pace of the class was well considered and I worked hard without realizing it.
The food is wonderful, with every effort made to accommodate my specific needs and the view out to the rolling waves is hypnotic, perfect for long, leisurely meals. I did forgo that pleasure on my last evening as I could not bear to leave the haven of my villa, and then the in-villa dinning service was, fast, efficient, discreet and delicious.
All of this, delivered by courteous people with smiling faces - the staff are truly looking for ways to increase your pleasure. As I drove off back to the family life I was taking a break from I discovered they had loaded my car with bottles of chilled water and tucked a teddy bear into the baby's car seat.
I waved goodbye to a host of (by now) familiar faces and said "Thank you, I"ll see you SOON!"
