Bali – Alila Villas Uluwatu

Here I am relaxing on the day bed in Alila Villas Uluwatu. Perched on the southern most tip of Bali, this reort does not have crashing waves, but pure tranquility. I can hear the birds chirping and calling out to their friends and the trickling of water out of the private infinity pool on this bright sunny day. Cool breeze passes through the open concept villa as I type on my keyboard. I treasure these solitude.


The room came with a samsung smart TV, a Samsung Soundbox and a Samsung Tab. This is different from Soori which seems to prefer iPhone users more. I was able to use my bluetooth to connect to the soundbox so that mymusic can be heard throughout the unit. Another thing to note though, unlike other resorts, this resort came with British power sockets which means no adaptors required of travellers from UK, Malaysia and Singapore. I like this place already just by their simple thoughtfulness! Oh the driver said that the owner of this resort is a Singapore Architect firm. That probably explains why. πŸ™‚

I have yet tried the cuisines at this resort. I may, on recommendation, give their spa a shot. Interestingly I had not craved for a spa session this time round. Perhaps that would cap of my Bali vacation just as well.

An update:

I tried out the spa at Alila Uluwatu today – Therapeutic Massage. Its a 90 min massage that goes deep into the muscles of your body. Those of you who are desk bound and do not exercise, be ware! πŸ™‚ the massage will find the congested acupoints and release them. Ask for a light or medium pressure massage if you have low pain threshold like me. I still feel pain on the blocked acupoints but it sure makes me feel good after the massage. You can choose between relaxing massage oil or detoxifying massage oil. Its really up to you. Just dont shower within 2 hpurs after the massage – masseuse have informed thatvthe oils are good for you! So check out the spa if you do come down here!
