To stay at Alila Ubud is to embark on a memorable journey into the local culture for a total destination experience. Whatever your personal interests are, new experiences are waiting. Whether learning to recreate the flavours of the local cuisine, enhancing well-being through ancient healing arts, or tasting the thrill of adventure sports, our guests will get to see and learn about the real Bali and its people. Through our Alila Experiences, not only do we encourage guests to get to know the Balinese culture and local customs but, at the same time, we also support the local businesses and community to grow.
Did you know that all the fresh fruits and vegetables available in the hotel are supplied locally? Not only that, most of our room amenities and the products available in our Alila Living boutique, such as soaps, shampoo, slippers and the Spa Alila products, are produced in Bali and many of them through village co-operatives supported by Alila. At Alila, we realise that purchasing goods that are made locally benefits our own community economically, not to mention the environment, by reducing the amount of transport needed to get goods to a location. For that reason, we prefer working with vendors who adopt a sustainable approach to their operations. We do so through encouragement, agreement and regular evaluation with our existing suppliers and new ones. We encourage our suppliers to reduce their packaging and waste when sending their goods to us by bulk purchase orders.
Alila Ubud is committed to selecting the majority of our employees from the local area and region of Gianyar regency. First priority is given to the neighbouring banjars surrounding the hotel. Out of 197 employees working at Alila Ubud, around 70% are living within 20 km of the hotel, and 92% are native to the island. Our recruitment process is a result of discussion and agreement with the surrounding three adjacent banjars. Our hotel also welcomes tourism students who wish to do a traineeship programme.
As part of the Payangan and Gianyar community, Alila Ubud feels responsible to give back by participating in community projects co-organised with neighbouring villages, local government, hotel associations in Bali and Ubud, and Non-Governmental Organisations such as Bali Hotels Association, Ubud Hotels Association, Subak (water irrigation community), IDEP, local schools (through regular environmental presentations), East Bali Poverty Project, TEMESI Recycling Centre, ABC Recycling Solutions, and Yayasan Bumi Sehat.
