Wood-slatted cabanas seem to float in midair at the Alila Villas Uluwatu. The hotel, perched 330 feet above Bali's southern coastline, has breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, and just below lies one of the best surf breaks on earth. The Alila's 65 sleek villas have private freshwater pools, flat lava-rock roofs, and bamboo ceilings that allow sea breezes to circulate naturally, making it as eco-friendly as it is heavenly.
