Bali Boutique Resort earns Gold for Going Green
This year, AlamKulKul Boutique Resort will be taking home the gold in recognition of its outstanding green efforts. The resort will claim its PATA Grand Award in the environment category at the Travel Mart awards ceremony on September 17 at the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel.
Jantung Hijau or Green Heart is an environmental awareness program first introduced to AlamKulKul Boutique Resort employees in early 2000. Every staff member was asked to bring a tree along to Family Day. Prizes were awarded for the most exotic species of native greenery. Every tree was later planted in the hotel grounds with each staff members’ name attached to it.
The resort has repeatedly been involved in green projects including beach clean-ups and working with the Balinese community to adopt local sites of cultural interest. The entire property no longer uses precious ground water reserves.
The greatest achievement is the continued effort to re-green the island of Bali through mass plantings. The Resort has planted more than 25,000 trees around Bali over the past 10 years. This endeavor, in fact, preceded Indonesia’s commitment during the Copenhagen Environmental Summit, to plant a billion trees in an effort to counteract the effects of global warming.
