Here it is, the clouds have definitely hidden our sun. Summer is far too far away. So I find it a great excuse to take you to Bali, to Alila Villas Uluwatu. And, maybe, start thinking about where to go for your next summer vacation.

I will introduce you to this beautiful design hotel where I stayed this summer during my trip to Southeast Asia.

Perched on top of the cliffs, the Alila Villas Uluwatu hotel overlooks the Indian Ocean. So the tropical landscape of the Bukit Peninsula is breathtaking. It is also around this added value that the hotel was built.

The interiors are open and nature blends in just as much as the hotel blends into the landscape. Thus, there is no rupture in the architecture.

Alila Villas Uluwatu was designed by the Singaporean architecture firm WOHA at the origin of the “The Met” residence in Bangkok. The idea of ​​the architectural firm behind the project was to build a complex in harmony with nature. For this, they used local building materials.

I immediately loved this hotel, subtly integrated into the landscape. Then, I liked the fact of coming back slowly inside, with semi-open transitions.

Staying at Alila Villas Uluwatu

I admired the landscape throughout my stay, from the vertiginous swimming pool but also from my bed. Staying at the Alila Villas Uluwatu hotel was also an opportunity to share my villa with small monkeys.

I discovered the different guiding ideas of design in this establishment.

The first is the transparency which allows not to separate the interior from the exterior. The architecture is, in fact, fluid and we do not feel a break between these two worlds.

Also the mirror effect plays an important role at Alila Villas Uluwatu. All support has been used to reflect the splendor of the setting. The swimming pool reflects the palm trees, the table the sky… An excellent idea for your outdoor table if you live in the sunny South of France.

Last common thread discovered during my stay: the bamboo knot. Sometimes, often even, we choose a color. Here in the Alila Villas Uluwatu hotel it is a form. Here again, I find the solution clever but above all easily imitable. What if we in turn choose an image, a shape or a symbol as the common thread of our decoration? I’ll let you escape to Bali for a few moments to think about it …
