Sustainability is the New Luxury
Alila Villas Uluwatu 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 a policy of environmental sustainability.
We are proud that Alila Villas Uluwatu has embraced environmentally sustainable design (ESD) principles and is the first resort in Indonesia to receive the highest level of certification from EarthCheck as a Best Practice Building Planning and Design (BPDS) development. We utilise many ESD measures, including use of local materials, water conservation with soaks and rain gardens and a waste water management system, using local plants from the special Bali savannah ecosystem, the deliberate use of sustainable/recycled materials, protection of the natural environment, and measured work practices throughout construction.
Alila Villa Uuwatu approaches waste in a whole new way. The centrepiece of our Zero Waste Policy is an on-site laboratory where all waste streams are transformed into higher value products and services through a series of simple yet proven mechanical and biological engineering systems. From producing our own compost to our glass recycling programme and organic garden, this site is built to accommodate our efforts to create a better environment
Water Bottling Plant
Small step, big impact indeed. Alila Villas Uluwatu believes in the importance of environmental sustainability. We are aware that recycling is an essential step. It’s a form of waste management that involves converting waste and other used materials into reusable products. One of the significant steps we have taken is to completely remove all plastic drinking bottles and replace them with glass bottles. We produce our own drinking water using a water purification system that significantly reduces plastic waste and is a good cost-saving strategy for the resort
No Plastic Policy
In line with our zero-waste initiative, Alila Villas Uluwatu has eliminated all single-use plastic usage throughout the resort, including back of house, since 1st June 2021. This includes no plastic food packaging, bags or cutlery, among others. At the same time, we encourage our team members and guests to bring their own reusable bags.
In the spirit of giving back to our local community, we have nominated the following two worthy foundations for support:
The R.O.L.E Foundation, our non-profit partner working to break the poverty cycle through Women’s Skills and Business Education. Approximately 30 million Indonesians are living in poverty; about 70% of the poor are women and their children. Most of them are unskilled. R.O.L.E. fights to empower women in poverty and help to break this cycle – through skills education, hospitality training and fair wage job support. R.O.L.E. believes that through the education of a woman, her whole family profits, leading to prosperity for the local communities. R.O.L.E. relies wholly on donations to fund this effective and life-changing programme.
Bali Life Foundation, a home that provides housing, education and health care to orphaned, abandoned and rejected children from the age of 5 to 15 in Bali.
