Bali’s Travel Boom: Eat, Pray, Love Tourism
On a still road in Pengostanan Village in Bali’s central foothills, a dull, blue-stained signboard points toward the house of the medicine man. Ketut Liyer is a ninth generation healer of undecided age — “maybe 90?” he shrugs — who has never been off the Indonesian island. But the dozen or so women who crowd his compound this afternoon, their chatter in competition with the peeping of caged birds suspended from clay-roofed pavilions, have come from all over. One by one they approach the small, weathered Balinese seer with the brilliant, near-toothless smile, and have him interpret their palms, their legs, sometimes even their spines.

Alila Ubud is committed to responsible waste management
There is an ongoing campaign to raise the awareness of illegal waste dumping that concerns corporation as well as tourism partners in Bali. Illegal dumping of waste goes entirely against the green philosophy of Alila, which is rooted in deep respect for the environment and community. We are fortunate to have been alerted by claims of illegal waste dumping carried out by the contracted waste collectors with no respect to the agreed green procedures and contractual agreement in place.
