Perched above the lush Ayung River Valley is the hilltop boutique resort of Alila Ubud. It is the perfect mix of contemporary design and Balinese architecture. They offer beautiful rooms with panoramic views as well as 3 types of villas. Our favorite was the newly renovated Terrace Tree Villas - the modern and spacious feel of the rooms juxtaposed by the lush, tropical jungle is incredible! I think the images speak for themselves...
