On the Indonesian Island of Bali, one resort chain is making eco luxury its selling point.

Sustainable touches at the 5-star Alila Villas Uluwatu and Alila Villas Soori, part of the Alia Hotels and Resorts group, include heat-reflective roofs made of lava and facilities built underground to lower temperatures; chefs dishing up local, nearly all organic food; and a corporate-wide focus on the community.

Even if you find "eco luxury" a difficult term to digest, you can't deny the stunning result.

I stopped by to take a look at Alila Villas Soori, which boasts a spot on Conde Nast Traveller UK's "Great New Hotels in 2011" list and EarthCheck (Green Globe) - Building, Planning & Design Standard Certification.
