Checked out of Citadines Kuta early in the morning on Day 5 to get ready to check in to our third hotel for this trip – Alila Villas Uluwatu.
I can’t even explain how excited I was prior to going to Alila Villas Uluwatu. Heard it was a beautiful, beautiful place with magnificent scenery! Whenever someone mention about Alila Uluwatu, I guess the first thing that came up on their mind is the stunning ocean view from the cliff and their very renowned Sunset Cabana!
But before I get all excited on that, we first have to get through a business meeting. Accompanied the Boyfriend to his meeting at Berry Glee Hotel, since we’ve already checked out of Citadines Kuta. Due to the location, it makes better sense to us to check out of Citadines Kuta, went for our meeting, before checking in to Alila Villas Uluwatu. Fortunately, we only had two luggage with us on this trip.

As you can tell from the color scheme of the hotel lobby, the vibe here is young and playful. Built for the young and young at heart.
Meeting ended in about an hour or so? Thereafter, we called for Grabcar again to get us to Uluwatu. Finally arrived at slightly before 2pm.

The view that greeted us the moment when we arrived.
All I can say is it felt surreal to be there. The peacefulness and calmness is nothing like I’ve experienced before. One just felt instantly at ease when facing a view like such.
Check-in was done swiftly and we were told to get on a buggy which will bring us straight to our villa.
After several twists and turns, we’ve arrived at our One-bedroom Pool Villa.
Once you enter through the main door, the first thing that you see in front of you is a writing desk and a wooden door that lead to the outdoor private pool and cabana. Everything else is located on the left.
There you have a king-size bed, round table with two chairs in the middle of the room, television, mini bar / fridge (hidden in the cardboard next to the television) and a lounge area with cushions of assorted sizes. Bathroom and wardrobe are located on the far left.
Directly across the bed, you have the lounge area with assorted cushions. The big sliding door can be fully opened to give you direct access into the pool.

After a dip in the pool, we decided to head out to explore the other parts of the resort. Here’s a map to give you an idea of the overall layout:
We were staying at villa 403.
As you can see, it’s a distance from our villa to the lobby. Hence throughout our stay, we usually call for a buggy whenever we decided to head down to the pool or the restaurant.
Of course you can choose to walk down if you like to.
I’ve no problem walking down. But climbing up all these stairs?
On the left of the corridor, we have the spa and the library.
Sun is almost setting..
The famous Sunset Cabana…
Steps that lead all the way down to the beach.. I heard it takes 600+ steps to go all the way down.
We stayed till the sky went completing dark, before making our way back to our villa. While I stayed in for the rest of the night, the Boyfriend actually went out again for a meeting at one of the restaurant.
It was nice to have the entire villa all to myself (for that one to two hours). The silence and privacy were something that I truly appreciate.
