Alaya properties are well appreciated by millennial couples and families who thirst for interesting travel opportunities and personalised experiences.
With 105 luxurious rooms and supporting facilities, Alaya Resort Ubud has become a home away from home offering a distinct sense of belonging for leisure travellers from around the world. Strategically located in the heart of Ubud, the resort is built with rare sensitivity towards the surrounding environment. It shares rice terrace views with a number of local independent cafes and eateries, including the neighbouring Bebek Bengil restaurant.
Alaya Resort Ubud was designed by Perth-based architects Grounds Kent, an award-winning firm responsible for numerous culturally unique resort projects worldwide. The three hotels feature landscape art by Made Wijaya and signature pieces by acclaimed Indonesian sculptor, Pintor Sirait, along with décor by Moroccan-born interior decorator Zohra Boukhari, in its DaLa Spas, and Petani.
Cocooned within a breezy Ubud rice field, Manisan Bali is a well-designed space that remains sensitive to the island’s rich cultural heritage. It provides the perfect setting to showcase the diverse and exotic flavours of the Indonesian archipelago in style. A picturesque pathway leads to a 350-year-old Javanese Joglo that also lends itself to wedding celebrations and private events.
Alaya Hotels & Resorts Bali has recently appointed Henry Alexie Bloem as Food and Beverage Advisor. Driven by his passion for Indonesian cuisine, the current President of the Indonesian Chef Association is expected to inject innovation and energy to the restaurants at Alaya Resort Ubud.
