we loved Alila - hotel staff were really great and the main pool was picturesque.
The food in the restaurant was world class.
We ventured into town a couple of times as the hotel has a complimentary shuttle service.
Doubtlessly second to none hotel in Bali, and maybe in Asia. Great get away, very quiet, well organized and gorgeous pool villas with a balanced mix of traditional Balinese architecture and modern appliances. The hotel's various activities provided half board basis were best to relax body and soul.
Very beautiful location. Great hotel with perfect service, accommodation and restaurant. Gorgeous full facilities villas with total privacy . Very vell trained staff. They take care of you with the smile from the moment you enter. We just left and I miss it already. Thank you Ayung Resort. Top hotel in Ubud.
I stayed three nights and loved it! If you're after the whole Kuta Bali experience then this is not the place for you. If you're after stunning views, nature (I saw monkeys, lizards, frogs, birds from my balcony) and a relaxing get away from it all then this hotel is great. A free shuttle into Ubud is easy to organise for spa treatments (Bali Botanical is great) and sightseeing in Ubud, whilst the hotel itself provided clean rooms and friendly accomodating service. The language capabilities of the stafff where adequate to the standards I've encountered on previous trips to Bali, no worse. An attempt to learn a few words in the native language goes a long way as it does anywhere in the world (ie; terima kasih - thankyou, tolong - please). As a solo woman traveller, I also felt very comfortable - don't be put off by expedia claims that "clothing is optional" as throughout my stay all guests and staff etc were suitably clothed as befits the traditional culture of the Balinese. All in all, a great place to stay if you want to think, relax, swim in a boutique hotel, away from the strobe lights and crowds in Kuta.

Hotel was very clean, but you could not feel any soul or passion as you would expect and see in other hotels on Bali. The room wS really big but not especially well furnished, lots of empty walls in the whole hotel - just doesn't make you feel cozy...
Next to the hotel there was aa construction site which resulted in a huge heap of soil directly in front of our villa. Maybe not the hotel's fault - but another factor to not feel in a paradise...
Overall a good hotel, definitely. But others just do it much better...
The hotel is mainly meant for newly wed couples or older couples, so it was very quiet and beautifully nested close to paddy fields. As it is located well outside Ubud, the hotel provides a shuttle to Ubud, which is convenient.
