Cradled within 12 acres of lush greenery, with pristine tropical outdoors, sweeping views of the paddy fields, retro-themed courtyard bar and contemporary Goan architecture, is ALILA DIWA, is more than a lifestyle Hyatt resort in South Goa.

Other than providing a lasting impression of the intimate cultural interactions of people with cultures, natural beauty and allowing guests to enjoy a holistic and immersive vacation. Alila Diwa at the same time demonstrates a commitment to being responsible members of the host communities by stepping gently on the environment.

In order to achieve the cause of responsible tourism, Alila Diwa Goa is proud to be the first hotel in Goa to install an automated sustainable drinking water bottling plant on its premises, in collaboration with Boon (Formerly known as Swajal WaterCube).

Alila Diwa Goa, KNOWN FOR ITS SUSTAINABLE DESIGN and distinguished by an unprecedented extent of personalised service, honed artisanship, and bespoke journeys, has set a new standard for creating rare and intimate experiences this year.

The “Zero Mile Water” programme is based on the circular economy principle, in which an automated in-house system washes, sterilises, and fills glass bottles, not only reducing plastic waste but also eliminating carbon emissions associated with transporting the bottles from a plant to the hotel.

Boon’s proprietary Clairvoyant IoT platform monitors the quality of each drop of drinking water. Guests can scan a unique QR code to get insights into the drinking water quality and impact in real-time.

“Goa is a unique place in India, and sustainable tourism is the only way forward to improve the area’s tourism-based economy while preserving nature that makes the destination such a unique place. Single-use plastics can damage beaches and the beauty of nature. Replacing single-use plastic bottles with glass bottles is a small step in that direction, but it is a giant leap in thinking about our environment,” said Dr Vibha Tripathi, CEO of Boon.

Alila Diwa Goa takes pride in promoting sustainable tourism and reducing its carbon footprint through the use of biodegradable materials. The resort takes great care to reduce its environmental impact by using mostly local materials and collaborating with the environment to preserve indigenous ecosystems.

At Hyatt, our purpose is to care for people so they can be their best. This includes supporting the communities in which we operate by caring for the planet. Keeping this in mind, we are very proud to be the first hotel in Goa to install an in-house water bottling plant to further our support to eradicate single-use plastic across the hotel. This also helps us provide pure and safe drinking water in sterilized and sealed glass bottles to guests who are now more conscious and are constantly seeking responsible travel experiences” – Suveer Sodhi, General Manager.

Initiatives such as the use of Areca leaf plates and bowls for outdoor catering events, which are made from naturally fallen palm leaves, aid in the reduction of plastic waste. Alia Diwa strives to uphold its commitment to sustainability; in support of the #NoPlasticStraws campaign, it has stopped serving straws with beverages since February 2018. Such initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint have been executed, demonstrating the organisation’s firm commitment to respecting and protecting the environment.
