Alila Villas Soori, a new resort and residential villa community on the southwest coast of Bali, has opened its doors.
This latest property by Alila Hotels & Resorts offers 48 exquisitely designed pool villas ranging in size from 150 square metres for a one-bedroom villa, to a sprawling 4600 square metre 10-bedroom villa.
Located in an unspoilt area off the tourist trail, the resort is situated on a gentle slope between lush, green rice terraces and black-sand beaches overlooking panoramic vistas of the Indian Ocean.
Designed by award-winning Singapore-based SCDA Architects, Alila Villas Soori integrates elements of its surrounding environment with a graceful expression of contemporary Asian design. The resort was designed, constructed and will be managed in accordance with Alila’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
“I believe there is a trend towards greater space and more privacy at the higher end of the market,” said Mark Edleson, President and CEO of Alila Hotels & Resorts. “People lead busy, complex lives and the concept of a hotel-as-retreat is increasingly more appealing. Luxury is now being defined less by specific materials and finishes. It’s more about privacy and comfort enhancing spatial conception and design components.”
Each villa has its own private pool and was designed to connect living spaces to the soothing sights and sounds of the natural surroundings. Inner courtyards open to the sky, letting in natural light and ocean breezes. Living spaces open onto an outdoor pavilion with landscaped gardens and architectural ponds. Each villa was configured to maximise views of the Indian Ocean without compromising individual privacy.
