At Alila Villas Uluwatu, eco-friendly practices ensure that guests do their bit for the earth while getting the space to unwind.

Eco-holidays have too much of a shabby reputation. As travellers from Singapore, we often associate them with roughing it out – basic amenities, limited facilities and no air-conditioning. On all fronts, Alila Villas Uluwatu exceeds expectations.

The most basic accommodation is a one-bedroom villa, that comes with air-conditioning. Guests have access to high speed internet, a private pool and even a butler to tend to their personalised needs. Beaches, entertainment options and the acclaimed Uluwatu Temple are close by. The resort is located 30 minutes from the Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Rates start from around US$600($810.37) a night, excluding taxes and fees.

The resort has received the Gold Certification from EarthCheck, for adopting the best practices in building planning and design. It tries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy and minimise waste.

Perhaps the coolest eco feature is its in-house, water purification system. Guests can fill reusable glass bottles with filtered water to quench their thirst.

“Alila Villas Uluwatu is committed to achieve environmental and social sustainability,” says General Manager Marco Groten. “We offer guests the opportunity to participate in our EarthCheck activities by constantly creating new Alila Journeys in support of this policy.”

He told Aerinlé that the resort encourages local tourism operators to “think Green, especially in preserving the waterways, coral reefs, minimising their use of plastic and the prevention of pollution.”

About 58 per cent of its employees come from the local area and Badung regency. The resort purchases fruits and vegetables from local suppliers, giving a preference to those from profit sharing co-operative organisations.
