WOHA Architects designs The Cliff at Alila Villas Uluwatu

Alila Hotels and Resorts opened The Cliff at Alila Villas Uluwatu. Located at Jl Belimbing Sari, Banjar Tambiyak, Desa Pecatu in Bali, Indonesia, the property’s new addition was designed by WOHA Architects.

Alila Villas Uluwatu was inspired by the Bukit Peninsula’s rocky savannah landscape. In keeping with the original design concept, WOHA brings an urban chic to The Cliff in a signature pattern of concrete slabs and gaps that corresponds to the wood-slatted pavilions of Alila Villas Uluwatu. 

Alila Villas Uluwatu has 65 pool villas. Interiors blend contemporary style with accents of Bali. Merging with the surrounding landscape, these villas by Alila incorporate an open-plan design that allows the sea breeze to flow in freely, while from the bed to the bathtub, every view is open to the outdoors. An indoor and outdoor rain shower and jet shower, Ploh bed linens, Alila’s bath amenities and Alila Hospitalities (complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access and yoga classes based on a daily schedule) are some of the offerings at the Bali resort villas in Uluwatu. There is also a private pool and cabana looking out towards the Indian Ocean.
