Creative Eco-friendly Improvements at The Samaya Seminyak Bali

The Samaya Seminyak Bali is a fully serviced villa and spa resort set on a spectacular beachfront location and situated within two hectares of tropical gardens. Guests can enjoy traditional Balinese hospitality and immerse themselves in tranquility, peace and relaxation in this island paradise.

Green Globe recently recertified The Samaya Seminyak Bali and awarded a high compliance score of 88% to the resort.

Samaya Seminyak Bali’s vision is to preserve a safe and healthy environment for the island of Bali, its people and visiting guests. Their Sustainability Management Plan outlines best practices at the property including employing local Indonesian people wherever possible, reducing environmental impacts and supporting research in renewable and sustainable energy sources.

Over the past year, the Green Team has been active with new initiatives that contributed toward an increase in the resort’s overall score by 4%. Various items are now reused in creative ways that has led to a decrease in waste volume as well as reducing costs. Old sun shades are recycled and used as laundry trolley bags, rice sacks recycled into shopping bags for staff, wood from the old terrace is reused in making recycling bins, fences and soap dispensers while wine corks are reused as stoppers for oil and vinegar flasks, and rain guttering reused for gardening purposes.

Resource management is also of key importance. Green roofs using local flora have been introduced to insulate buildings and decrease energy consumption. Water usage is monitored and costs regularly benchmarked. In addition, native plants and vegetation requiring minimal watering feature in gardens and landscapes.

The Green Team is constantly investigating new ways to utilize green ideas and technology. Future plans under consideration are the installation of a Sigma Tank to maximize water collection or planting a hydroponic garden within the property’s grounds.
