In December 2011, Anantara Seminyak Resort&Spa, Bali was also certified as “Tsunami Ready,” being the first hotel in Bali to proactively involve the community and provide tsunami shelter to as many people as possible.

Wayan Sucitra, Environmental Officer at Anantara Seminyak Bali, said: “We are very proud that Anantara Seminyak Bali receives Green Globe recertification. This encourages us to continuously improve our sustainability performance. Everybody at our resort is very committed.”

As an Anantara Resort, the Anantara Seminyak Bali promotes local cultural traditions and contributes to preserve historic heritage and the natural beauty of its destination: the resort regularly participates in environmental activities and events such as Earth Day, Earth Hour, and beach cleaning days. As part of its Social Involvement Program, Anantara Seminyak partners with the community and offers local artisans to sell their handicrafts in the hotel´s gift shop and library; invites them to perform Balinese traditional dances and other entertainment shows on the property; and integrates aspects of the colorful, deeply spiritual, and unique Balinese culture into everyday experiences of guests.
