This is a residential and resort property with nine villas for sale. The other units are hotel suites. Alila is a great hotel brand, with a commitment to quality, value and good design. They already have two properties in Bali, the Alila Ubud, and Alila Manggis.
So naturally I was pleased to hear of two new Alila developments on the boards for Bali; this one near Tanah Lot in Tabanan, and Alila Uluwatu on the Bukit Peninsula. If there’s development is going on, it might as well be quality development.
I was not pleased to find out that both new Alila developments have been plagued by protests and planning authorities, in rather aggressive ways. On an island where enforcement of planning and building regulations is tainted with capriciousness and corruption, one has to ask, “Why single out Alila?” If the issues are shoreline and cliff setbacks, then the next question one might ask is “Why are the Pecatu projects at Dreamland and Balangan beaches steaming ahead, unchallenged?” Hmmm.
