Geared to open its doors early in 2009, the Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia is a resort development encompassing a hotel and 34 modern, luxury villas that take “hotel chic” to a whole new level. Available for sale and intended for permanent residence among the visitors, these three-bedroom homes boast authentic Balinese building materials and methods, which are enhanced with a modern edge. Set on Bali’s southern coast, the villas are tiered to offer unobstructed views of the sea. A series of outdoor living spaces include covered and open-to-outdoors lounge areas and endless infinity pools. On the inside of the floor-to-ceiling glass, “interiors are lushly furnished and resonate with a soft, clean chicness that contrasts with the rich and rugged gardens and site,” as described by the architects, Singapore-based WOHA.
