Alila Diwa Goa takes great pains to minimise its environmental impact by using primarily local materials and working with the landscape to preserve indigenous ecosystems. The resort's aesthetic scheme reflects these efforts, blending effortlessly and gracefully into its natural setting. All materials used in building the hotel were sourced locally and an abundance of the region’s eco-friendly brick red laterite stone can be seen throughout the hotel.
Preservation and conservation of the local environment was of utmost importance right from the very beginning of the hotel's design with consideration given to keeping the existing forest trees intact and conserving the nearby rice paddy fields. This also makes the property a bird watcher’s paradise as a number of migratory and local birds nest here.
Alila Diwa Goa has been committed to working with the local community. One of the community projects that has been established supports the Father Basilio Andrade Memorial Higher Secondary School in improving the condition of the school and its facilities. The hotel also actively supports the local community by providing employment and training: residents of the local community were invited to join the team and assist our guests with transportation requirements; some ladies from the neighbourhood are employed at the Alila Diwa Goa cafeteria for team members' meal preparations. The hotel also helps to secure an area along the beachfront to be manned and maintained by the team in collaboration with the local village youth. In further efforts to encourage local talents, Alila Diwa Goa sponsored sports equipment for the local Youth Club in Majorda at the end of their annual 21-day football coaching camp.
