Lush valley views, a treetop infinity pool and sublime island experiences - welcome to the Alila Ubud jungle...
Don’t get us wrong – we LOVE a sandy-footed beachfront Bali vacay. But when the alternative is a jungle-hugged resort, 600m above sea level and deep in Bali’s enchanting rainforest, well, you can bet your Rupiah that we’re happy to swap our sunbeds for jungle adventures galore…
And at Alila Ubud – a hillside resort that sits high up on the sacred Ayung River valley – coming face-to-face with Bali’s great outdoors is just the beginning of a summer escape here. Bringing five-star indulgences to Mother Nature’s best bits, you’ll find fine dining in the jungle, a dreamy infinity pool high above the treetop canopies, and island adventures given a luxury touch with Alila’s five-star leisure concierge.
So, pack your palm-leaf bikini and a pair of binoculars, and this summer, swap your beach holiday for a summer vacay in the jungle at Alila Ubud – bucket lists at the ready!
The jungle watering hole
The beach may be far way from your Alila jungle abode, but that doesn’t mean your holiday hangs need to come sans the sun-soaking. At Alila Ubud, you can laze your rainforest days away beside Alila Ubud’s sky-high infinity pool, teetering on the edge of Ubud’s wild green valley.
From here, high above the treetop canopies, you can catch infinite and picture-perfect views of untouched scenery, and by nightfall, this glittering watering hole is heated to let you linger in this jungle oasis a little longer. And the best bit? At sunrise, you’ll find daily yoga classes just footsteps from the ripples, while by twilight, the poolside sunbeds become your front row seats to a nighttime cinema – popcorn and poolside snacks included!
Bucket list adventures, Alila-style
If you can bear to drag yourself away from the resort’s glittering infinity pool, Alila Ubud’s signature collection of curated lifestyle experiences are on hand to help you explore the wonders of Bali’s inland, all thanks to the resort’s very own leisure concierge. Ticking off your bucket list one adventure at a time, you can completely tailor your island activities according to your interests and hobbies.
If you’re after a heavy dose of local culture, you’ll want to join the Balinese Lifestyle tour where you can visit Ubud’s galleries, museums and the famous Goa Gajah Elephant Cave. Or if you’re after an adrenaline kick, sign up to the Active Spirits tours and raft your way down the powerful Ayung River, climb up Mount Batur, or trek through rice terraces, rivers and waterfalls.
You can even cruise through Ubud’s rolling countryside in an open-top VW Safari convertible car, or up the romance with a real-life fairytale dining experience for two at the resort’s Bale Bengong – an outdoor jungle gazebo where you’ll be served a five-course feast amidst flickering candles and the mystical sounds of the jungle by nightfall…
Luxe jungle living
It wouldn’t be a summer getaway without some serious indulgences, so Alila Ubud is dedicated to ticking those boxes, too. For starters, Alila Ubud’s tree-house-like villas and suites are luxurious jungle abodes, home to oversized al fresco bathtubs, verdant views of the Ayung River below, and private lounge terraces engulfed by the sounds of singing tropical birds and inquisitive monkeys frolicking in the trees.
Outside of these rainforest retreats, you’ll find the award-winning Spa Alila, designed to melt away any unwanted tension with specialised, holistic well-being and all-natural spa treatments. This six-star sanctuary takes inspiration from ancient age-old beauty recipes, locally-inspired treatments and Bali’s healing remedies. Try the signature Balinese Massage for a truly traditional and heavenly experience – it’s one of our faves!
If that wasn’t enough to get you jungle-ready, Alila Ubud is also where you can get a taste of Bali’s traditional and colourful cuisine at the resort’s iconic Plantation Restaurant – an open open-air Balinese-style venue, suspended in the jungle overlooking the dreamy infinity pool and Ubud’s wildlife. You’ll also find the two-storey poolside Cabana Lounge (with enchanting views in every direction) where you can graze on light gourmet bites, tapas plates and magical cocktails, until you’re ready for more island adventures…
Now that’s our kind of summer getaway!
