"Our goal is to send our guests home with spiritual and emotional memories, not just souvenirs." ~ Mark Edleson, President
The name Alila comes from Sanskrit meaning ‘surprise’ which suitably describes the refreshing character of our properties and the reaction of our guests upon arrival and throughout their stay with us.

Alila sets the standard for getaways featuring privacy, eco-friendly buildings and operations.​ ​“Alila has come into its own as an innovative brand that commits to sustainable operating standards and unique guest experiences. Its philosophy to integrate commerce, conservation and community – continues to drive its product development.”

Holistic Environmental Vision
Alila’s green efforts extend beyond the operational aspects of the resorts to create a positive impact on the community – economically, socially and culturally. This includes adoption of the EarthCheck Certification - the world’s leading programme used by the travel and tourism industry to assess environmental sustainability - which measures and regulates operational indicators such as energy, emissions, water, waste, community involvement, paper use, cleaning and pesticide use for accreditation. Many of the newer resorts are designed and built in accordance with strict EarthCheck standards leading the way in sustainable hotel development.

Community Involvement
All Alila hotels and resorts have embraced Alila’s spirit of giving back to the community through a “Gift-to-Share” programme, a community cause that enables guests to share the ‘Gift’ in support of any local community endeavours initiated by the hotel for the destination.
