Alila Seminyak is strongly committed to social, cultural and environmental responsibilities, which we regard as essential for sustainable business. In all activities, we aim to respect and preserve the way of life and traditions of local communities and endeavour to minimise our impact on the environment by adhering to environmental sustainability policy.
Educational aid for two neighbouring elementary schools
As part of its social responsibility and community development programme, Alila Seminyak supports two local elementary schools in Kerobokan where the resort is located. SD Negeri 1 was established in 1951 and was a pioneer of children’s education in this area. As the population grew and the need for educational services expanded, the local government opened another elementary school, SD Negeri 2, in 1965. Teachers of both schools have been active in developing the schools’ art and science curriculum, and facilitating students’ participation in competitions such as national maths and science olympiads, Balinese dance and art competitions, English speech contests and many more. Nurturing the potential of the students requires the support of creative spaces such as a library, art class, computer and science laboratory. With the students and community being well exposed to tourism and an urban lifestyle, English and other foreign language training and facilities are required to provide basic communication skills. Education that promotes a sustainable environment and healthy lifestyle is also important to create a mindset of responsible tourism amongst the young generation.
From Farm to Table
As part of the efforts in sustainability and responsibility to the environment, Alila Seminyak has its own hydroponic garden, where the property plants its own vegetables and herbs. This is to support our farm-to-table concept, where we freshly harvest our own local organic ingredients to create the dishes and zero-waste cocktails served at our restaurant, Seasalt.
