“Voices through Arts” silent auction raises more than IDR 30.000.000

On Wednesday, 23 August 2017, Alila Seminyak, in collaboration with Daya Pelita Kasih Centre, held a gathering to bring to a close a week-long painting exhibition and silent auction named “Voices through Arts”, held to support children, young adults and adults with special needs at the Centre.

Daya Pelita Kasih is an education institution that plays an active role in conducting special education, therapy and training for children, adolescents and adults with special needs, especially kids with autism. Founded in 2003 by Mr. Ronald and Maria Korompis, the mission of the institution includes, but is not limited to, providing education, training, therapy and programmes to help individuals with special needs participate in society.

Taking place at a stunning beachfront venue in the resort, the event was attended by more than 60 guests who had a chance to take a closer at the artistic creations and meet their creators while enjoying a delicate selection of afternoon tea.

The afternoon began with a speech by Alila Seminyak’s General Manager, Pierre Lang, who expressed his gratitude to all the attendees who supported this event by joining in the silent auction and all the partners who helped make the event a success. This was followed by a speech by Ibu Lita Wewengkang, headmaster of the Centre’s school, who, together with all artists and the head of the Centre, made paint strokes on a white canvas to signal the start of the event.

At the end of the week-long silent auction at Alila Seminyak, the five paintings with the highest bids were announced, along with the news that the event had successfully raised over IDR 30.000.000. One hundred percent of the amount raised will go towards supporting children, young adults and adults with special needs at the Daya Pelita Kasih Centre, nurturing future undiscovered talents.

Alila Seminyak held its first social event, “One Day with Alila”, providing children from two local elementary schools, SD 1 and SD 2 Kerobokan Kelod, a fun and insightful insider’s experience of the resort. The event is one of Alila Seminyak’s commitments to cherish the community around us and nurture Seminyak’s future hoteliers.

Representatives from both schools, including 20 children and 10 teachers, accompanied by a number of respected guests, including Mr. A.A. Putu Sutarja, S.H, Chief of Kerobokan Village, Mr. Made Adi, an owner representative, and Mrs. Ni Ketut Murjani on behalf of Mr. I Made Wistawan, S.E., the Urban Village Head of Kerobokan Village, participated in and lent their support to the event.

Divided into three groups – Little Mixologists, Little Spa Therapists and Little Chefs – the children had a chance to be great hospitality practitioners, each group guided by our experts from the related departments. The Little Mixologists were taught how to make their favourite smoothies, such as mango and banana smoothies. The Little Spa Therapists were pampered with a special manicure and pedicure session. Meanwhile, the Little Chefs had great fun learning how to make cookies in Alila Seminyak’s charming open kitchen.

Chief of Kerobokan Village, Mr. A.A. Putu Sutarja, S.H, said that this event should be continued in order to enable the children to learn more about the hospitality industry and improve their English language skills as they grow up on this island of tourism. He also highlighted the fact that Alila Seminyak is the first hotel to have such an initiative, which he hopes will be an example for other hotels.

Once all the “little hoteliers” had finished their projects, the attendees gathered on the rooftop of The Studios at Alila Seminyak to enjoy some delicious bites and refreshments, hosted by our passionate and talented culinary team. But that was not all. Before the children headed home, we prepared surprisingly different goodies for them, comprising certificates and guide books on the three activities they had participated in, enabling them to take the new skills they had learnt back home.

After seeing such a positive response to our inaugural “One Day with Alila”, Alila Seminyak is committed to making it a quarterly social event.

If you’ve been too mesmerised by celebrity weddings on cliffside resorts or staring too hard at gorgeous water villas, you may be missing out on an often-understated part of Bali that takes you back to nature – resorts nestled in the heart of the Balinese lush greenery.

Luxury at the top of the dramatic rainforest: Alila Ubud
Imagine taking in a panoramic view from a dramatic mountainside pool perched above the Ayung River valley.
If this doesn’t take your breath away, we don’t know what will.

At the airy Valley villa, you can immerse yourself in the lush valley views from the comfort of your bed, and enjoy the peaceful tunes of nature as you soak in the outdoor bathtub. For even better luxury, choose the elegant and spacious Terrace Tree Villa, which is perched on a lofty hillside where you can watch the sunrise every day. You’ll also be able to see vast rice paddies and alang alang plantations on the banks of the valley.

Alila Hotels & Resorts, one of three brands under Two Roads Hospitality, has refreshed its culinary offerings with two restaurants – one new and the other, revamped – in southern Bali.

QUILA – a portmanteau of ‘qui’ (he who transforms) and ‘la’ of Alila ¬– is the latest dining experience offered at Alila Villas Uluwatu. Aimed at “(exemplifying) multi-sensory savoir-faire”, according to Marco Groten, general manager, the restaurant offers diners a daily-changing dinner menu curated by executive chef Marc Lores Panades.
“The culinary scene in Bali is constantly changing and chefs are always looking to introduce the unexpected, which is evident at QUILA,” shared Groten.

“Since the launch, we’ve had numerous chefs visit to participate in the gastronomic surprise that we are offering.”
Here, dishes are Mediterranean-inspired creations, which combine fresh seasonal local produce with modern cooking techniques. What’s unusual is that there is no menu here, as each plate is tailor-made to each guest’s likes and dislikes.

The restaurant takes a maximum of 10 guests per night in its five-table indoor setting, to ensure an elevated and intimate dining experience.
