Gallery: Exquisite Alila Villas Uluwatu is the Ultimate Eco-Resort in B...

 

Looking for ideas for a relaxing eco vacation this year? This stunning Balinese Alila Villas Uluwatu eco resort is located on a sloping hill in Bali’s Uluwatu region on the Southern Bukit Peninsula of the charming Indonesian island. This beautifully designed complex straddles a striking white limestone cliff and an arid savanna on the tropical island's arid Bukit Pennisula. The Alilas Villas resort is the first of its kind to achieve the highest level of certification for Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD) and is designed for the Green Globes GG21 standard. The take-your-breath-away beauty of the resort and its sensitive placement on the delicate landscape is enough to set one’s mind at ease. Warning, if you read on you will need to take a vacation….

Ok, just remember we warned you…… the design by WOHA is a vision of ecologically sound placement, form and materials which speak to a greater harmony. Indoor and outdoor spaces blend together as verandas, canopies, bridges and passages weave through the resort. The architects drew inspiration for the stone walled court yards from the local farmer’s buildings, and the overall design is a fusion of low-slung vernacular Indonesian architecture and modernism. The villas are placed to follow the natural contour of the gently sloping land, leaving much of the local vegetation and natural formations intact and providing each with a view of the Indian Ocean.
