Hot on heels of WTA victory Anantara gains Bali’s First Green Globe Certification

Hot on the back of its victory at World Travel Awards 2011 Middle East Ceremony, Thai-based hospitality group Anantara has scored another coup with news that its Bali property Seminyak Resort & Spa has achieved Green Globe Certification.

The luxurious boutique retreat, along the sought after Seminyak coastline, becomes the very first hotel in Bali to be rewarded with this status under Green Globe’s standards. 

Green Globe Certification is the travel and tourism industries’ worldwide hallmark for sustainability, and this recognition highlights Anantara Seminyak’s sincere commitment to operating in an environmentally, socially and culturally responsible manner through a broad spectrum of initiatives.

Anantara Seminyak incorporates all aspects of Green Globe standards in its daily operation, principally in environmental conservation such as water, energy and waste management efficiency.

The resort supports its local community and environment through charitable events, and promotes the island’s social and cultural heritage through resort and area experiences.  Anantara Seminyak also proudly participates in local, national and international sustainability and cultural events, such as Environment Day, Earth Hour and Earth Day.


I Wayan Sucitra, the resort’s Environment Officer, comments: “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 associates also implement our green workplace policy in their own homes”, commented Ivan Casadevall, General Manager for Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, who adds, “At the same time as celebrating our achievements, we are fully aware that there are even more opportunities to improve our sustainable efforts in an ever changing global climate. We are therefore delighted that our international guests can enjoy complete peace of mind in knowing that Anantara Seminyak is truly committed to a future of caring for our environment.”
