2013 August, September – EAM Message
Warm greetings from AlamKulKul Boutique Resort.
It is indeed a delight it is to present this edition of KulKul Beat. Please read on for all the very latest news, events and special promotions from our resort located just footsteps from the beach in the pleasure playground of Kuta.
Summer is now upon us and despite some unexpected rain showers, the island is enjoying a busy holiday season. Bali is set to host Miss World 2013 in September, which will be televised to some nations around the globe. This prestigious international event, together with the APEC Summit later this year, will put Bali in the international spotlight.
On a cultural note there will be several important celebrations coming up on the calendar including Idul Fitri to observe the end of the holy fasting month for followers of Islam. Indonesian Independence Day on 17th August is a public holiday to represent 68 years of national independence. There will also be several auspicious Balinese ceremonial dates with symbolic rituals in the honour of metal weapons as well as local trees.
AlamKulKul had its own reason to celebrate during its 24th anniversary month that took place recently. This milestone occasion was marked with various social activities including a generous donation to a local orphanage and a Family Day for staff and their loved ones. We also planted more trees as part of our ongoing effort to re-green the island of Bali. This is an initiative that has earned the resort a number of prestigious awards including the PATA Grand Award and Indonesian Green Award in 2010.
As the island of Bali continues to develop, it is important that we all take responsibility for our environmental footprint. Together we can all take simple measures that can make a significant difference. Locals and travellers alike can refuse plastic bags whilst shopping; turn off unnecessary lights and dispose of rubbish wisely. It is time to think about the future generations who will inherit not only the island but also the planet.
