Alila Villas Uluwatu – Bali
Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali has won the coveted Best Dressed Hotel category at the inaugural Smith Hotel Awards, as well as being named as runner-up for the prestigious “Best Smith Hotel 2013”, the most hotly contested award of the night.
The resort’s striking design combined with its jaw-dropping setting proved a winning combination, cementing the hotel’s position as one of the most desirable hotels worldwide.
Alila Villas Uluwatu beat stiff competition from more than 900 Smith hotels, with nearly 50,000 people taking part by public vote before a panel of 36 expert judges whittled it down to just 12 ultimate winners.
The winners were announced in a glittering ceremony held in London last week, attended by over 600 of the most influential people in the hospitality industry.
Set on the rugged coast of Bukit Peninsula in Bali, Alila Villas Uluwatu is a contemporary resort that combines eco-friendly design with a dramatic backdrop.
Alila Villas Soori, on the south-west coast of Bali, came fifth in the Sexiest Hotel room category.
