Leading Asian boutique hotelier, Alila Hotels and Resorts, is set to add three new properties to its lifestyle collection in 2014. Marking the group’s entry into the Middle East, Alila Jabal Akhdar Oman will open in March next year, followed by Alila Seminyak Bali and Alila Fort Bishangarh Jaipur India in late 2014. Alila Jabal Akhdar will be the first luxury resort in the breathtaking mountainous region of Jabal Akhdar in Oman. The resort will feature 78 luxury guest rooms, six loft suites, a cliff-side restaurant, pool, world-class Spa Alila, a fitness centre, two opulent Jabal Villas with two bedrooms, private pool and Jazuzzi.
The second Alila property to open in late 2014 will be Alila Seminyak Bali. Cocooned along a pristine beach on Bali’s southwest coast, the hotel will be located minutes from high-end designer boutiques, art and antique galleries and trendy nightspots, as well as fine dining establishments and uber-chic cafes – while still providing a private retreat away from the crowds.
The final Alila property to launch next year will be Alila Fort Bishangarh, a heritage fortress that is being lovingly restored and transformed in the Bishangarth Village in India’s Jaipur district. Positioned on a granite hill in the Aravalli mountain range, with spectacular 360-degree views, the all-suite resort will feature 59 stately suites, elegantly furnished with large bay windows, daybeds and large bathrooms with footed bathtubs.
