Nothing unites the world like travel, and nothing more so than #travelwithpurpose – taking the opportunity to experience cultures and interact with communities on a more meaningful and positively impactful level.
Alila Villas Uluwatu adds meaning to an unforgettable holiday with its new Gift to Empower offer, which invites guests to discover the beauty of Bali and the authenticity of Balinese hospitality while enjoying the chance to connect with and support the local community.
In the spirit of giving back, 5% of guests’ villa rate per night will be gifted to R.O.L.E. Foundation, the resort’s non-profit partner working to break the poverty cycle by empowering women with skills training and business education.
With global travellers becoming more mindful in terms of embracing local culture, local food and the needs of the local people and economies, Hemal Jain, General Manager of Alila Villas Uluwatu, sees a big future for #travelwithpurpose and the leading role that the resort can play.
“As travellers seek more authenticity, for a luxury hotel like us where we really practice local culture, sustainability and a keen sense of community care, I definitely believe that our Gift to Empower message reflects what the next-generation traveller wants. It really reflects our hope for future travel – fantastic times ahead and a beautiful embracing of localization in everything we do.”
These aspirations are shared by Piet Van Zyl, an experienced sustainability professional who is R.O.L.E. Foundation’s Sustainability Advisor.
“Guests will in future be much more discerning regarding a hotel’s programmes to reduce their environmental impact and contribute to the local community, especially higher-end guests. I have always maintained that involving guests in sustainability initiatives is very important. With this offer, guests will not only enjoy a tour of the foundation to see how we impact the local community and the environment, but also receive samples of what we are producing. A priceless experience.”
The Gift to Empower offer includes daily breakfast, one three-course dinner for two, and a visit to R.O.L.E Foundation on a heartwarming journey into the community. This offer can be booked immediately and valid until December 2021. Free cancellation is offered until 24-hour prior to your arrival date.
