Our favourite rooms
Opt for a suite for handy butler service and plenty of sprawling space. Just steps from the ocean, Beach Suites have a separate living room with a sofa bed than can serve as a second bedroom; the wrap-around balcony and sweeping sea views aren’t to be sneered at, either. The three-bedroom Penthouse has its own infinity lap pool high above the beach – a superlative setting for family frolics.
The three freshwater infinity pools are sleek, wood-decked numbers perfectly positioned to blend into the blue, blue sea. They’re open from 7am to 7pm and all are unsupervised; two are for adults only.
Taking inspiration from ancient Asian medicine and Balinese therapies, Spa Alila (open 9am–11pm) takes a tailored approach to pampering. Book one of the nine treatment rooms for a blissful four-hand massage, a traditional lulur body polish or a spot of reflexology. After a citrus-scented foot bath, 6–12 year-olds can indulge in a gentle massage with coconut oil, as well as manicures and pedicures. Don’t miss the creme bath, a nourishing avocado and coconut hair mask combined with a blissful neck and shoulder massage.
If you’d rather leave your stroller at home, the hotel can help you find a local rental. There are bikes to borrow for little ones, but you’ll need to bring your own helmet.
Alila Seminyak is a showcase for environmentally sustainable architecture, with an open-air design that keeps lighting and cooling needs to a minimum. The resort meets Earth Check’s stringent standards thanks to its water conservation and management programmes, the use of local and recycled materials and a considered approach to environment protection.
