LOS ANGELES, California – “Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa Bali has proudly achieved Green Globe Certification for the third time, continuing to be the luxurious boutique retreat along the sought after Seminyak coastline – as the very first hotel in Bali to be rewarded with this status under Green Globe’s standards,” said Christiane Wasfy, General Manager at the resort.
This upscale outpost shines with a wealth of significant environmental, social, and cultural preservation efforts: Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa Bali has incorporated all aspects of Green Globe standards in its daily operation. The resort is actively involved with its local community and environment through charitable events, such as working together with the Solemen Indonesia and Rotary Club District 3420, supporting their corporate social responsibility programs. Baby turtles have been released to the ocean at the front of the resort’s beach, and regular activities, such as beach cleaning, promote the island’s social and cultural heritage through resort and area experiences. Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa Bali also proudly participates in local, national, and international sustainability and cultural events such as Environmental Day, Earth Hour, and Earth Day.
Wayan Sucitra, Anantara Seminyak’s Environment Officer, commented, “Ongoing environmental and sustainability training for all of our resort associates continuously strengthens our green, social, and cultural initiatives, and we look forward to developing our heartfelt commitment and sincere sense of responsibility to our beautiful island.”
“Our team members also implement our green workplace policy in their own homes,” added Christiane Wasfy. “While celebrating our achievements, at the same time we are fully aware that there are many more areas where we can improve our sustainability efforts in an ever-changing global climate. Therefore, we are delighted that our guests can enjoy complete peace of mind in knowing that Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa Bali is truly committed to a future of caring for our environment.”
