BALI, Indonesia — Alaya Resort Ubud and Alaya Dedaun Kuta (formerly Villa de daun) were both awarded Emerald Accreditations during Tri Hita Karana (THK) Awards 2017. The awards were presented during an official ceremony hosted on 25 November 2017 at the Ksirarnawa Hall, Art Centre in Denpasar. This culturally-inspired event was attended by leading Balinese hoteliers and business owners.
The awards essentially recognize our significant achievements in incorporating sustainable spiritual, social and environmental principles and practices into our business operations. This is Alaya Resort Ubud’s first Emerald Award as a Five Star Property and also a first for Alaya Dedaun Kuta as a Boutique Villa.
Under the Alaya Hotels & Resorts banner, we strive to implement the principles of Tri Hita Karana, which is a Balinese Hindu lifestyle philosophy, to all areas of business. We are committed to adhering to local cultural and spiritual beliefs, as well as trying to make a difference to those less fortunate who do not directly benefit from the island’s tourism sector.
