Alila Seminyak CSR Progamme “We Are Healthy Children”

As part of its CSR support for two local elementary schools, SD 1 & SD 2, Alila Seminyak held a seminar at the schools on 24 Sept 2016 titled ‘We Are Healthy Children’. In collaboration with doctors from Surya Husadha Hospital, the seminar provided counselling and education to the audience of 130 people ­– children, their parents, teachers and members of the local community – on healthy food and hygiene habits, and the importance of staying healthy for a better future. The seminar was followed by a blood pressure and diabetes blood examination. Following the very positive response to the seminar, Alila Seminyak looks forward to making this a regular event.








Ultimate Guide To Scuba Diving In Bali

Story and photographs by TripCanvas

Trivia: Did you know that Bali is surrounded by not one, but two oceans – creating unique biodiversity, which is a success recipe for an amazing dive experience?

White sand beaches dot turquoise blue seas in Indonesia’s most traveled island. Bali is known for its grand resorts and ripping surf spots – but very few of the thousands of annual visitors know what lies beneath the waves. In fact, Bali is home to some of the best dive sites in the world. Around the island, divers find everything from rare macro critters to fascinating pelagic species. There’s shipwrecks, caves and pristine coral reefs to explore. And while we’re ticking Bali’s diving boxes, we should add crystal clear visibility and warm, tropical waters to the list. To help introduce you to the wonderful world of scuba diving in Bali, we’ve compiled a guide to Bali’s dive destinations, divided by the minimum skill level required. So grab your fins and dive into Bali’s amazing waters. Adventure is calling. Will you answer?

Why you should visit Java, Indonesia’s biggest island

Article by Luke Slattery for Traveller

A shimmery gamelan track drifts on the equatorial evening air. A gecko chirps, like a squeaky toy, from the tropical garden. And from a nearby mosque rise the piercing vocal arabesques of the muezzin’s call to prayer.

Central Java’s cultural capital of Yogjakarta (referred to locally as Jogja) is a little bigger, a little busier, a little scuzzier than I remember from a visit long ago. The population has grown to three and a half million and at any time it seems most Yogjakartans will be ripping around the streets on two-stroke motorbikes. But the abundant charms of this benign sultanate and university town are blessedly intact. The place is crazy busy yet somehow tranquil, traditional, with traces everywhere of its layered past. The palace architecture, in particular, is a hybrid of Buddhist and Muslim, Javanese, Dutch, Chinese and Portuguese influences.

Staying There:

Alila Solo opened in October 2015. A medium-rise tower designed by the Jakarta offices of Australian’s Denton, Corker Marshall, this spectacular new hotel is reasonably priced – around $120 for a double room – and richly yet subtly decorated with traditional motifs given a contemporary twist. Check out the 50-metre pool and stunning rooftop bar. 562 Laweyan, Jl. Slamet Riyadi, Jajar, Kota Surakarta, Jawa Tengah,
