Warwick Ibah receives 3rd consecutive Gold medal and the prestigious Emerald medal accreditation at 2012 Tri Hita Karana Tourism Awards

2013-01-03 — /travelprnews.com/ — The Tri Hita Karana concept is a set of principles guiding operating practices in the hotel & tourism community in Bali. Three times a year representatives from the THK authority visit to assess hotels performance against the principles. In the case of environment, they will assess everything from laundry chemicals being bio-degradable and garbage disposal systems, to how advanced recycling their program has become. They will also seek evidence of contribution to industry education programs and how much the resorts’ participate in external campaigns to assist the greater environment.

Warwick Ibah Luxury Villas & Spa proved its commitment and the importance given to environmental and Balinese philosophy. Its 17 suites and luxury villas located in Ubud, the artistic and cultural heart of the island of Bali, fit in perfectly with the sumptuous decor and is the ideal setting for a holistic getaway.

Environmental friendliness and attention to teamwork and training are among the core fundamentals exercised by hotel management, giving the Warwick Ibah for the third consecutive year the gold medal Tri Hita Karana Tourism Award in the 4 star hotels’ category.
