When you see so many resorts here in Bali and around the world, you wish that every project could be developed sustainably. Give the award winner architecture firm Woha a hotel project and the results are none less than spectacular. The Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali is a Green Globe 21 rated ecologically sustained development which is just what the island needs. It is located in the Southern coastline of Bali’s Bukit peninsula, ideal if you are keen to surf nearby. It is set a 100 meters above the Indian Ocean on a limestone cliff with breathtaking views. Woha took its inspiration from local farm terraces. All the building materials were locally sourced such as a terraced roof which was developed with Balinese volcanic rock that is naturally insulating. The local vegetation was surveyed and documented and solely grown to adapt to the dry savannah landscape. It goes dormant in the dry season then flourishes in the wet season. As they are native plants they need far less water and support local animals and birds. BOOK
