Desa, Melinggih Kelod, Payangan, Gianyar, Bali 80572, Indonesia
What makes Alila Ubud sustainable?
Did you know that all the fresh fruits and vegetables available in the hotel are supplied locally? Not only that, most of our room amenities and the products available in our Alila Living boutique, such as soaps, shampoo, slippers and the Spa Alila products, are produced in Bali and many of them through village co-operatives supported by Alila. Purchasing goods that are made locally benefits our own community economically, not to mention the environment, by reducing the need for transportation. For that reason, we prefer working with vendors who adopt a sustainable approach to their operations. We do so through encouragement, agreement and regular evaluation with our existing suppliers and new ones. We encourage our suppliers to reduce their packaging and waste when sending their goods to us by bulk purchase orders.

What makes Soori Bali sustainable?
The various structures that compose Soori Bali are designed and oriented in a way that facilitates the passing of filtered natural light into the buildings while minimising heat gain during daytime. A combination of indigenous volcanic rock and abundant greenery organically cools the villas. Furthermore, open courtyards provide natural ventilation and lighting, minimising the use of both air conditioning and artificial lighting. Soori Bali operates efficient lighting systems, with interior lighting using low mercury fittings with photo sensors, and carefully positioned lighting that minimises energy consumption.
Water efficiency is similarly a focus of the resort’s construction and operations. In order to reduce water wastage, Soori Bali utilises a potable water supply that insures zero island groundwater abstraction for construction and operations. Water consumption is reduced through the use of water-efficient appliances in bathrooms, laundry and kitchens. A hydropneumatic system with a booster pump is installed to enable uniform water pressure throughout the resort. Water consumption is reduced by 50 percent with a separation line between gardening water and domestic water. Irrigation of natural vegetation and landscaped areas also involves the use of recycled water.

At Sumberkima Hill Retreat, we uphold the principles of sustainability, conducting our business with people, planet and profit in mind. Our villas are privately owned by individuals from all around the world, all of whom have one thing in common: a deep love for this pristine corner of Bali. With that love comes a sense of preservation and protection far into the future. We do our best to grow in harmony with the environment and the community that lives here and works with us.
Rather than claiming to be an eco-resort, we devote ourselves to respect and regeneration. We have set up a reforestation project to regreen the hills in a bid to stop the forest fires of the dry season from damaging the ecology. We have also set up Metamorfosa, a reef restoration project in the bay that has unique features like an underwater art gallery and a wish tree! We have also started English classes in the village to make the larger world more accessible for the children. Our concern is not limited to our villas alone but extends to all of Sumberkima – the bay, the reef, the mountains and the people we share this paradise with.
