Alila Diwa Goa, the first hotel in Goa to install a water bottling plant

At Hyatt, our purpose is to care for people so they can be their best. While we craft rare and intimate experiences for our guests at Alila Diwa Goa, we also care for our people, our planet and responsible tourism.

Championing our cause for sustainability and being environmentally friendly, we are now proud to be the first hotel in Goa to install an automated water bottling plant at the property in partnership with WaterCube. This being a ‘Zero Mile Water’ program, it will help us to:

- Eradicate over 350,000 single-use plastic bottles annually

- Reduce over 50 tons of carbon emissions

- Deliver fresh alkaline water to our guests in sterilized and sealed glass bottles

Green initiatives

Alila Diwa Goa minimizes 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.

Nature is an integral part of its architecture, with large courtyards and majestic old trees all around the property. The trees strategically integrate into the spatial design, with the spaces woven around the large trees in a symbiotic relationship. The beautiful landscape merges seamlessly with the existing plants and maintains the existing vegetation. The vibrant greenery enlivens the soothing surroundings.

The award-winning home-style coastal restaurant Spice Studio was undertaken as a restoration project for heritage conservation. The interiors of the restaurant are adorned with vintage and pre-loved furniture that has been restored to preserve its authenticity. The décor is inspired by the antiquity of Goan homes and reflects a distinctly personal and residential feel.

Some of the other key measures undertaken:

- The use of Areca leaf plates and bowls for outdoor catering events to reduce plastic waste. These plates and bowls are made using naturally fallen palm leaves. The use of Areca leaf plates is an eco-friendly option as there is no water wastage for washing the crockery. Furthermore, the leaf plates are biodegradable and compostable.
- All our restaurants and bars have discontinued providing plastic straws, in support of the #NoPlasticStraws campaign. The straws are made using biodegradable plastic that decompose naturally in a matter of just 18 months compared to 400 years for standard plastics.
- Metal dispensers are placed in the bathrooms instead of plastic tubes and shampoo bottles. Glass jars are used to store spa products.
- Glass jars and bottles are used to store spa oils and other products. Water dispensers are placed at the gym and yoga studio.
- We take utmost care toward water conservation. Some of the measures undertaken are the use of water sprinklers for irrigation and using recycled water for flushing, cooling towers and gardening.
- We regularly organize planting drives wherein our staff distribute and plant saplings with the help of the locals.
- Through an ongoing commitment toward sustainable development, Alila Diwa Goa has accomplished many initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint and voiced its firm commitment to respecting and protecting the environment.

Local Community

Alila Diwa Goa is committed to working with the local community. Among our community projects, we support the Father Basilio Andrade Memorial Higher Secondary School by assisting in improving the condition of the school and its facilities. We provide employment and training opportunities: residents of the local community have joined our team to assist guests with transport requirements and with meal preparation in the staff cafeteria. We also maintain an area along the beachfront in collaboration with the local village youth. And in an effort to encourage local talent, Alila Diwa Goa donated sports equipment to the local youth club in Majorda at the end of their annual 21-day football coaching camp.
