Bali Eco-Resort Villas Designed by WOHA

The Alila Villas Uluwatu were designed with the environment in mind by Singapore-based architecture firm WOHA. From its roots, they created the luxury resort with locally and responsibly sourced materials, labor and construction process.

Alila Hotels embraced Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) principles, including "local materials, water conservation with soaks and rain gardens and recycling with grey water systems, using local plants from the special Bali Savannah ecosystem on the Bukit, which are being raised in a nursery on site to encourage local bird and animal life, heat pumps for water heating, salt water pools - among many others. The resort is registered for Green Globe certification, and will be the first hotel in Bali to get the highest level of certification for ESD. As it is built into the resort from the beginning, there will be a strong combination of the built fabric and on-going operations side working together to reduce the long-term ecological footprint of the resort."

I also love, from a design perspective, how the interiors flow seamlessly to the exterior surfaces and the surrounding environment.
