As a premier local brand, Alaya Hotels and Resorts hope to inspire other like-minded entities within the hospitality sector to embrace similar programs. This collaboration is an opportunity to express gratitude for all of the blessings bestowed by God Almighty. It also reinforces the resort’s commitment to Tri Hita Karana, a Balinese Hindu lifestyle philosophy that is all about maintaining a harmonious balance between mankind (Pawongan), the environment (Palemahan) and God Almighty (Parahyangan).

 

 

Nyepi Day in Bali

By alaya Uncategorized

Bali’s cultural calendar is a non-stop cycle of religious ceremonies and colourful rituals that dominate all aspects of daily life on the island. The most unique occasion of all is Nyepi Day or Balinese New Year in accordance to the Saka Lunar calendar system. Unlike turn of the year festivities in other parts of the world, it is celebrated in silence as the entire island literally shuts down for 24 hours. The lead up to this holy day involves a number of different events that are all intrinsically tied to the whole Nyepi experience such as Melasti Ceremony and Pengerupukan.

Melasti is a customary procession for followers of the Hindu faith that always takes place in the days leading up to the Saka New Year. It involves sacred temple artefacts being carried to the sea or nearest holy spring for ritual purification. The best locations to observe this unique tradition are Kuta Beach and Sanur Beach as hundreds of Balinese people parade along the shoreline dressed in white ceremonial costumes. Visitors are reminded to be respectful of these proceedings by taking photos from a distance, especially during prayers.

The eve of Balinese New Year in accordance to the Saka Lunar calendar is a festive celebration that takes place just before the island is shrouded in silence. Giant monster effigies are carried through the streets in lively parades featuring flaming torches, firecrackers and loud gamelan music. The aim is to create as much noise as possible to deter unseen spirits and malevolent forces from disturbing Bali’s seemingly peaceful existence.

Indulge in some well-deserved time away to unwind and reconnect with a loved one in a romantic hideaway at Alaya Resort Ubud or Alaya Dedaun Kuta. Both Alaya Resort Ubud and Alaya Dedaun Kuta presents a relaxing tranquillity package that invites you to stay 2 nights in a well-appointed Ubud’s Room or a Kuta’s private villa complete with exclusive privileges. It is valid for the period of stay from 1- 30 March 2020 with reservations made online using the promo code “TRANQUILLITY” at http://alayahotels.com/  starting immediately until 29 March 2020.

Alaya Hotels & Resorts Took Action on World Cleanup Day 2019

By alaya Uncategorized

On 21st September 2019, volunteers worldwide came together to rid our planet of trash – by cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from beaches, rivers, forests, and streets. World Cleanup Day activities also took place all across Bali on the same day. This was an important first step for the people of Bali to strengthen their commitment and be accountable for the cleanliness of the island. 

Alaya Hotels & Resorts lent its full support to the World Cleanup Day program. While the brand is all about creating opportunities for intimate cultural interactions and exposing guests to the natural beauty of each destination, it is also committed to being a responsible host and treading lightly on the environment.

Cleanup activities on the day involved all senior management and staff members from Alaya Resort Ubud and Alaya Dedaun Kuta. The Ubud team focused their efforts on removing rubbish from the banks of a nearby river and network of irrigation canals that feed local rice fields. Meanwhile, the Kuta team joined forces with other hotels in the area and participated in an early morning cleanup of Bali’s iconic Kuta Beach. They managed to fill many bags with various items including discarded bottles, drinking straws, broken sandals and other bits of debris. This event organized by Suksma Bali had total of 59,207 participants who had collected 2060 kg of organic waste and 17,571 kg of non-organic waste around Bali area. 

Long before this cleanup, Alaya Hotels & Resorts has always taken steps to engage the community in long-term environmental initiatives. Even though garbage is an inevitable part of tourism, its existence needs to be managed wisely. Every effort must be taken to ensure that all waste generated from visitors and local people alike does not cause damage or negatively impact Bali’s reputation as a popular holiday destination. This also means that the island’s current landfill system needs to be urgently evaluated to prevent garbage from re-entering rivers and the surrounding ocean.

Alaya Hotels & Resorts respect for the environment is firmly entrenched in the brand’s vision that conservation, community and commerce can and should be integrated. Alaya’s “green” efforts extend beyond the operational aspects of each resort to create a positive impact on the community – economically, socially and culturally. This includes maintaining a productive rice field adjacent to Alaya Resort Ubud as well as having a “living kitchen” onsite to grow fresh ingredients. Alaya is also on a mission to ditch single use plastics. 

General Manager of Alaya Hotels & Resorts, Mrs. Dewi Mas, CHA, CHT, is driving the entire team to try and cut down on environmentally damaging resources such single-use plastics. Both properties under the Alaya banner have pledged to eliminate single-use plastics from all hotels by 2018 – and to serve as a leader in the hospitality industry for a plastic-free moment-turned-movement.

This sustainability event was an opportunity to express gratitude for all of the blessings bestowed by God Almighty. It also reinforced the resort’s commitment to Tri Hita Karana, a Balinese Hindu lifestyle philosophy that is all about maintaining a harmonious balance between mankind (Pawongan), the environment (Palemahan) and God Almighty (Parahyangan).

 

Alaya Hotels & Resorts Conducts HIV/AIDS and Drug Prevention Counselling for All Employees

By alaya Uncategorized

During the month of August, Alaya Hotels & Resorts Kuta collaborated with dr. Romy Associates to conduct HIV/AIDS and NAPZA (Narcotics, Psychotropics and Addictive Substances) prevention counselling. These informative sessions were available for all employees of Alaya Resort Ubud, Alaya Dedaun Kuta, Tanaya Bed & Breakfast, Tan’s Bakery and Pastry, and Dala Spa.

HIV/AIDS and NAPZA prevention counselling is an important mode of behavioural intervention. NAPZA are narcotics, psychotropics, and other additive substances which endanger users. There are many cases around Bali related to drug abuse and the number of users continues to increase. This information inspired Alaya Hotels & Resorts to reach out to dr. Romy Associates to host a series of counselling events about the dangers of drug abuse with the aim of preventing young people from experimenting with illegal substances. 

In addition, the team from dr. Romy Associates educated Alaya Hotels & Resorts staff members about HIV/AIDS. The term HIV refers to a virus that affects people by weakening the human immune system so that the body fails to fight infection. This virus is produced in human cells, while AIDS or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is a more progressive disease with a collection of symptoms that arise due to the loss of immunity. 

Through this counselling, staff at both Alaya Resort Ubud and Alaya Dedaun Kuta learned that there is no guaranteed vaccine or curative treatment for HIV/AIDS. Contracting the virus means having to deal with a number of medical, psychological and social issues. In many countries, women and girls are today bearing a heavier burden than men when it comes to HIV infection. 

Gender inequalities limit women’s access to HIV/AIDS treatment, care and support, including antiretroviral therapies. HIV positive women face stigmatization and are more likely than men to be blamed, denounced and abandoned by their families. 

The increasing number of HIV/AIDS cases and NAPZA users in Indonesia is a real concern and immediate action must be taken. The Alaya Hotels & Resorts Management Team hopes that this kind of awareness program will reinforce the importance of prevention and safe sex practices. The overall aim is to protect people and their partner/s by sharing valuable information that will greatly reduce the likelihood of transmission.  

This sustainability program was one of our concerns for each other. It also reinforced the resort’s commitment to Tri Hita Karana, a Balinese Hindu lifestyle philosophy that is all about maintaining a harmonious balance between mankind (Pawongan), the environment (Palemahan) and God Almighty (Parahyangan).
