If ever a hotel took full advantage of its location, then it’s Alila Uluwatu. Glistening ocean and orange-streaked skies provide the late-afternoon magic at the luxury all-villa resort on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula. Singaporean architecture firm WOHA is the brains behind the leading-edge architecture, which works with the natural contours of the land. Built into the coastal cliffs, the villas are designed to minimise the environmental impact and maximize the views. And trust us, the result is one of the most romantic stays on the island.
Even though Bali has not yet reopened for tourists, it doesn’t mean that nothing is happening on the Island. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, venues have been busy innovating and adapting their businesses to become more efficient and sustainable. This has led Bali Hotels Association to host the first inaugural Sustainable Food Festival in Bali. The festival will run from September 27th through to October 16th, 2021 and will see a number of Bali venues take part.
Two COMO Hotels & Resorts will participate in the inaugural Festival – COMO Uma Canggu & COMO Uma Ubud. The COMO teams will showcase the innovations they’ve made during the border closures to move towards a more sustainable way of operating. COMO Resorts have had a sustainable focus long before the pandemic, with single use plastic reduction always being a focus in their resorts. More recently however, their sustainability efforts have been focused on their food & beverage outlets and they have become more sustainable in their menu creations.
The Sustainable Food Festival allows both COMO Beach Club and Uma Cucina to each showcase a special two-course set menu, which has been developed using the key sustainability criteria, especially for the festival. All ingredients are 100% sourced from Indonesia, at least 75% of ingredients are organically grown, all seafood used is certified sustainable and poultry is all free range. The COMO Beach Club menu has an Indonesia theme, while Uma Cucina’s menu has some Italian twists.
An aim of the festival is for all participating venues to be as close to zero waster as possible in their menus. It is hoped that this will set a benchmark across the Island and encourage more sustainable practices to be implemented throughout venues beyond just the festival period.
Both COMO venues are offering Balinese wines to pair with their menus, at special price to make your experience even more fun. Choose from dining beachfront at COMO Beach Club, or head to the jungle setting of Ubud at Uma Cucina to be part of Bali’s first ever Sustainable Food Festival….and if you have time, why not try both menus!
