Terrace Tree Villas at Alila Ubud

Already renowned as one of Bali’s go-to sanctuaries in Ubud, Alila raised the bar with the launch of its new, 120-square-metre Terrace Tree Villas. From their lofty hillside perch on the sunrise side of the resort, there’s no better place to experience indulgent me-time than within the lap of nature, high above a pristine river valley.

Each villa offers a spacious wood-decked terrace, perfect for breathing in that refreshing morning air, lulling yourself into a meditative state by the sound of birdsong and gaining insight into Bali’s day-to-day life as ancient rice paddies and lush plantations buzz with peaceful activity. Indoors, a 40-inch flat screen television is perfect for catching up on the latest international news (if you must!) and the generous layout includes a walk-in wardrobe and separate work space in case you feel the urge to respond to those pesky emails.

Perfect for couples and small families, each one-bedroom villa is customised with opulent accoutrements that include Illy Coffee and an inviting tea selection from TWG. His and Her Alila Living amenities are spa-like toiletries concocted locally from the finest botanical and organic ingredients.
