Alila Ubud has expanded its rainforest abodes with the launch of six new Terrace Tree Villas – five one-bedroom units and one two-bedroom unit with private pool – all perched on a steep forested hillside beside a beautiful temple, immersing guests in Ubud’s lush natural landscape.
Increasing the resort’s current inventory of one-bedroom Terrace Tree Villas from four to nine, the new one-bedroom additions are spacious private retreats comprising 75 to 80 square metres of indoor space adjoined by 43 square metres of an outdoor garden and courtyard.
The two-bedroom Terrace Tree Villa spans a lavish 190 square metres, including a large outdoor terrace for relaxing, dining and soaking up the jungle views, and a 40-square-metre private pool where guests can swim above the treetops.
Each villa is designed as an intimate haven with its own private entry court and water garden. Maximising natural light, generous space and views, the foyer connects an indoor/outdoor bathroom with a high-ceilinged bedroom, opening directly onto a terrace that sits high over the Ubud jungle.
The villas are designed by Indonesian architects NXST, who have drawn inspiration from the temple forms and details that are evident throughout everyday life in Ubud. The villa interiors are classic Alila, accented with handwoven textiles from nearby Sideman Village, and with spaces defined by the interplay of light and shade.
Luxury pervades every thoughtful detail – from the 300-thread-count Ploh bed linen to the deluxe bathroom equipped with an indoor bathtub, outdoor rain shower and jet shower. Separate his-and-hers vanities are furnished with a complete range of award-winning Alila Living amenities made from locally sourced organic ingredients: lemongrass and black pepper for him; mandarin, lemongrass and rose geranium for her.
There’s even more to uncover in the special bathtub box, the ultimate pampering kit, from bubble bath to face masks and handcrafted beeswax candles, all in the Alila signature secret scent. For guests venturing outdoors, they will be protected and covered with sunblock, after-sun cooling gel, mosquito repellent and face spritzer. And for want of anything else, a personal Villa Host is just a call away, ready to attend to every whim.
