7. Nurturing the future: Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia
Through its Gift to Share programme, romantic Bali retreat Alila Villas Uluwatu supports the Bali Life Foundation, an orphanage in Jimbaran, South Bali, that was established by Australian expat Brad Little and his wife Siska. Children here not only receive shelter and support, but also lessons in English, IT, farming and cooking. Alila Villas provides all of the foundation's basic food needs each month, assists with recycling and sustainability projects and employs some of the older children in its kitchens. This contemporary clifftop retreat was also the first hotel in Indonesia to attain the highest level of certification for Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD).
