– Cliff edge spa cabana

– Alila Amenities
Alila Villas Uluwatu is Bali’s pioneer hotel in substituting plastic-based amenities with ones made from biodegradable and compostable materials, such as bamboo straws and dental kits; small changes that embrace sustainability yet without compromising luxury or quality
– Lava rock
Alila has combined its knowledge of sustainability with the use of lava rocks to absorb the Bali heat. Lava rock offers several advantages, such as its resistance to colour fade, its ability to serve as a source of natural insulation, and its ability to control weeds. By absorbing heat, it also keeps air-conditioning energy consumption to a minimum.
– Sustainability lab
Alila Villa Uuwatu approaches waste in a whole new way. The centrepiece of our Zero Waste Policy is an on-site laboratory where all waste streams are transformed into higher value products and services through a series of simple yet proven mechanical and biological engineering systems.
– Organic Garden
All organic waste that has been processed and transformed into compost at the Sustainability Lab is sent to our organic garden, where it contributes positively to the soil quality and helps to produce fresh, organic ingredients.
