Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia
All of the open-plan villas at this five star resort in Bali have private saltwater pools, sun terraces and ocean-view cabanas.
The three-bedroom houses are the best with their spectacular cliff-side locations overlooking the sweeping coastline. The spa, restaurants and bar are only a short stroll away.
Traditional Balinese wood, stone and rattan feature strongly in the modern interiors which are designed to let the cooling breeze flow freely through the rooms.
The Singapore-based design partnership WOHA has followed sustainable principles when creating the resort – ceilings are made from local bamboo, volcanic rock lines the flat roofs and grey water is recycled to irrigate the tropical gardens.
