The Datai is a luxury resort hotel on the island of Langkawi in the natural forest of Datai Bay. The sustainability works started with an assessment at the end of 2017 when the hotel closed for extensive renovations.
Part of the rebranding of the hotel includes major sustainability initiatives and every aspect of the operation was put under the sustainability microscope so that the negative impact on the magnificent natural forest can be minimised.
The initiatives includes a drinking water bottling plant, permaculture designed garden by Mark Garrett and a PURE Center where all the hotel’s waste will be sorted, processed and prevented from going to landfill by employing a circular economy model to the waste stream. (Zero Waste To Landfill) The newly built Nature Center concentrates on keeping the wildlife, forest and ocean pristine and showcasing it to the discerning guests of The Datai.
The Hotel will undergo EarthCheck Certification in November 2019.

We advised IDPM on the Zero Waste programs in the four Alila Hotels in Bali namely Alila Villas Uluwatu, Alila Seminyak, Alila Ubud and Alila Manggis. Each hotel has an iSuRRF (integrated Sustainable Resource Recovery Facility) as well as a Permaculture designed garden to ensure that no waste ends up as pollution in the environment. The garden at the beach hotel of Alila Seminyak is situated on the lobby roof as there is any space on the ground.
The luxury Selong Selo development has hillside villas, some completed and some still under construction.
An iSuRRF was built just off the property to handle the construction and the restaurant waste and as villas are completed, the guest waste to ensure no waste ends up in the environment.
IDPM is working with the Selong Belanak Community Association and collecting beach waste and waste from some of the properties at the beach through a bins system and processing it at the Selong Selo iSuRRF. Community beach cleanup waste is also processed at the facility.
