The eco-friendly design of the luxury Alila Villas Uluwatu certainly does not compromise on style

Katie and Carrie are here to help give you the inside track.

Set on the cliff edge of Bali's Bukit Peninsula, the setting of the stylish Alila Villas Uluwatu is jaw dropping, and the views equally sensational. All of the 64 villas look out over the Indian Ocean, and their open plan design accentuates the fantastic setting.

The one bedroom and three bedroom villas are built with the environment in mind, and their framework is environmentally sustainable. The eco-friendly design continues inside the villas, with flat lava rock roofs and bamboo ceilings that allow the sea breeze to circulate naturally. All have pools, and contemporary Balinese touches complete the look.

The hotel's two restaurants, Cire and The Warung, are both fantastic. The former serves Western food created with regional produce, and the latter (the word for a small café or family owned shop in Indonesia) focuses on traditional Balinese and Indonesian cuisine. Following the tradition of an Indonesian warung, the restaurant is relaxed, and guests can choose to eat at either the communal table or on their own.

Facilities include a cliff top infinity pool with spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, as well as a gym, yoga classes and indulgent treatments at Spa Alila. In order to make the most of the views, relax in the sunset cabana - an enclosed platform that suspends over the edge of the cliff. The hotel also has concierge who are on hand to organise anything guests may need or desire.
