Taking out a Platinum Medal in the Tri Hita Karana Awards 2014, the hotel has proven that it continues to follow the principles of a lifestyle philosophy that is totally unique to the island of Bali.
Tri Hita Karana is a concept based on the belief that a balanced existence contributes to physical and spiritual wellbeing.
This encompasses maintaining a harmonious relationship between mankind, his environment and God Almighty. Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa has been awarded this highest level of Platinum Medal for the second time in a row. Assessment was based on a number of aspects including the fact that the hotel implements eco-friendly practices and gives back to the local community. It also provides an uplifting work environment that is conducive to the Hindu faith.
The Indonesian Travel & Tourism Awards (ITTA) is an annual initiative carried out to recognise excellence within the nation’s evolving hospitality industry. The judging process is a lengthy procedure involving online voting and further evaluation by a panel of experts.
Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa was officially awarded “Indonesia’s Leading Island Resort – Bali” during a gala ceremony that took place in Jakarta on Monday, December 15.
Marketing Communications Manager, Angelina, collected the award on behalf of the hotel before an audience of high-profile hospitality personalities from around the Indonesian archipelago.
