Our unforgettable Balinese lifestyle with Alila experience began when we were greeted by the Hotel General Manager Marco Groten and his team Ayu (our Villa Host) and Rina (Head Host) who looked after us so well with hassle free during our stay. Being on holiday is about celebrating your own choice in living, in rhythm and cultivating your personal priority as perfection is defined individually combined with the hospitality know-how to make your stay "surprisingly different" ~ that is exactly what Alila means and of course, after all, life is about living it.
Staying with Alila Villas Soori in one of the most spectacular locations sweeping the views across the emerald expanse of rice fields that stretch towards the mystical Mount Batukaru in the horizon and the sensational Indian Ocean coastline is how a perfect holiday shall begin. By admiring the contemporary architecture with traditional elements and indigenous features inspired by the terracotta craftsmen from nearby Pejaten and the sandstone artisans of the neighbouring Kelating is another plus. Locals use sandstone from the village of Kelating to build temples and shrines all over the island and this indigenous material was also used in the construction of Alila Villas Soori which was crafted into intricate collage wall patterns visible throughout the villa, spa, restaurants and lobby. Certain colours of sandstone can be strongly identified with certain regions - Kelating sandstone is cool grey, promoting a sense of tranquility and space ideally suited to the environs of Alila Villas Soori.
The sandstone responds uniquely to the local climate and significantly curbs the absorption of thermal energy together with its resistance to weathering and artistic versatility as it is much suppler to carve than wood, making curves and shapes easier to form which make it a much-favored building material. The intricate design of the indoor and outdoor spaces, connected by landscaped gardens, courtyards and private pool, offer the ultimate in relaxation.
