Alila Villas Uluwatu Debuts New “Positive Footprint” Booking Option

Alila Villas Uluwatu is now offering guests “a deeper journey into its regenerative approach to tourism.” Travelers can now opt to upgrade their stay in terms of sustainability with the resort’s newly launched “Positive Footprint” booking. Selecting this option will ensure a stay that encompasses the highest levels of sustainability within the guest’s villa as well as opportunities to explore and get actively involved in the resort’s environmental and community initiatives.

The Positive Footprint booking option comes with a range of exclusive benefits, including:

  • High quality, durable and stylish sandals made by ethical footwear brand Indosole utilizing recycled tires from the resort’s buggy cars
  • Complimentary minibar stocked with all-local products
  • Environmentally conscious level of butler service with a mindful effort to save energy, water and waste
  • Departure gift of guest’s Indosole sandals and a set of drinking glasses made by the Sustainability Lab team from upcycling glass bottles

In addition, guests can enjoy complimentary participation in two of the resort’s bespoke journeys. On the "Sustainability Journey,"guests will take a tour with the resort’s Regenerative Tourism expert to learn about Alila Villas Uluwatu’s Sustainability Lab, which started in November 2019, as well as its self-sufficiency efforts and integrated design concept that works in harmony with the natural ecosystem. The journey will culminate with a complimentary farm-to-table sambal-making experience with the chef in the Organic Chili Garden.

As part of its Regenerative Tourism approach, Alila Villas Uluwatu also invests in the development of the local community and encourages travel with purpose. On "Journey to Community," guests will have the opportunity to visit two local foundations that the resort supports in their efforts to provide a better future for communities in need: Bali Life Foundation, a home that provides housing, education and health care to orphaned, abandoned and rejected children from the age of five to 15 in Bali; and R.O.L.E. Foundation, where guests can tour the facility and meet its team members, visit its community recycling center in Nusa Dua, and join in a recycled paper-making workshop.

Under its “No Plastics” initiative, the resort has already eliminated unnecessary plastic packaging and items in all villas and restaurants and, as a signatory of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative led by the U.N. Environment Program and the World Tourism Association, has targeted to eliminate all single-use plastic from the resort by 2025. In efforts to increase its self-sufficiency, Alila Villas Uluwatu bottles its own drinking water, grows ingredients for its restaurants in an Organic Chili Garden, and has an on-site waste management facility, the Sustainability Lab, where all waste is sorted for reuse, recycling or upcycling in collaboration with community partners, ensuring no waste is sent to landfills.
