However, Amadea is strategically located and happens to be surrounded by some excellent restaurant, shopping and spa options all within easy walking distance.
In this edition we take pleasure to announce that we are the proud winner of yet another emerald medal in the annual Tri Hita Karana Awards 2016. Read on for details about our Book Direct Promo with special rate that can be enjoyed throughout the first half of the year. We share details about Bali Cultural Calendar . Lastly, Ambiente Spa is offering generous discounts on certain treatments this January to help you counteract the excesses of the recent festive season.
Happy reading and see you soon in Bali.
The Amadea Resort & Villas Team
Farewell 2016 & Hello 2017
As 2016 draws to a close, it is time to look back and express our gratitude for another great year of business and several more awards to add to our growing collection. We have had the good fortune to serve a wonderful assortment of guests over the past 12 months. Coming from many different parts of the world they have chosen to stay with us whilst experiencing the island of Bali and all that it has to offer. Amadea has become a melting pot that unites people from all walks of life in the happening district of Seminyak.
In the hospitality industry there is always room for improvement and 2017 will see some changes to enhance the property. A number of upgrades will be taking place to help us better serve the needs of our guests.
Amadea will continue to collaborate with the Bali Smile Foundation to provide life-changing craniofacial surgeries for those in need. This charity initiative comes under the banner of Amadea Cares, a Corporate Social Responsibility program that helps disadvantaged members of the local community. To date, the generosity of our in-house guests has helped us to fund a total of 18 operations. It is heartening to know that patients who would have otherwise lived with disfiguring afflictions are now able to smile.
Our growing commitment to eco-friendly practices will be strengthened through our recent affiliation with EarthCheck. We will be investigating how we can further reduce our carbon footprint by embracing the concept of sustainable tourism. This will involve training our team to be environmental ambassadors and coming up with innovative ways to recycle and reuse just like we have done with our Christmas tree.
We look forward to welcoming both old and new guests in 2017 with updated services and facilities that will invariably take the whole Amadea experience to the next level.
Amadea Won Emerald in Tri Hita Karana Awards 2016
It is a great news to close the year, we have won an Emerald in the Tri Hita Karana Awards for managing to sustain a hospitality environment that is conducive to the Hindu religion. Tri Hita Karana is a Balinese lifestyle philosophy based on the belief that spiritual and physical wellness is achieved through a balanced existence. The awards are an annual initiative conducted to recognize local tourism related organizations that implement the religious and social values of Tri Hita Karana.
The award was presented by the Vice Governor of Bali, Mr. Ketut Sudikerta, in an official awards ceremony hosted at the Ksirarnawa Hall, Art Centre Denpasar, on 1 December 2016. Chief Engineer and leader of Amadea’s Social & Environment Committee, Mr. I Made Dody Hermanta, collected the medal on behalf of the property. He later commented, “It is indeed a great honour to receive this award for our adherence to Bali’s age-old wisdoms. This achievement will motivate us to strive for nothing less than perfection in our ongoing quest to preserve Bali’s unique cultural traditions.”
