WildAsia.net seeks out tourism operators in Asia who demonstrate a "high degree of commitment towards respecting local cultures, benefiting local economies and achieving low environmental impacts."

Supported by the British Government's Global Opportunities Fund and the Langkawi Development Authority, Wild Asia is a Malaysian-based think-tank that specializes in supporting conservation initiatives in Asia. It runs programs promoting conservation in tourism, forestry, and plantations.

Bringing special recognition to Bali were the Alila Manggis and Alila Ubud who came to the selection committee's attention for their deep and abiding respect Bali, its culture, people and environment.

Winners of the Wild Asia award are resorts that focus on making sure that wastewater is not discharged from their resorts. Suppliers are compelled to reduce wasteful packaging practices and utilize local products to help create employment and income opportunities for the local community.

Guided by the Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana, the two Bali resorts strive to maintain balance between man, God and the local community. Immersed and deeply in love with the Bali's local culture, the two hotels are major supporters of the East Bali Poverty Project. Religious celebrations are central themes in the life of staff at both Alila properties. Staff also serve as "leisure concierges" escorting guests to local ceremonies. Employees are recruited from the surrounding communities meaning staff spend their careers at the Hotels where turnover is very small.

Commenting on the award, Jork Bosselaar, General Manager of the Alila Manggis said: "being part of something bigger, is the future in leisure travel. And people see that in the little things we do. We try to be as light on nature as possible and integrate with the local community. When they gain, so do we. These are benefits that are hard to quantify."
