Located on a lush cliff of the Bukit Peninsular in Bali, Alila Villas Uluwatu is a 50-suite hotel with 35 residential villas.
The design of Singapore architectural firm WOHA combines the delights of traditional balinese pavilion architecture and rural landscapes with modern dynamic treatment of space and form.
Location: Bali, Indonesia
Inspiration from architect:
The architecture is inspired by the local farmers’ terraces. A terraced roof was developed using Balinese volcanic pumice rock, which is a natural insulating material. These low terraced roofs keep open the site’s unique wide panoramas. The hillside villas are designed as pavilions linked by bridges across water gardens, tucked into the hillside as terraces.
