HOW IT ALL BEGAN.....
Ever wonder which hotels in Asia are the most sustainable? And what does a sustainable hotel even mean? We have heard this question often and we have the answer - It Depends. There are so many dimensions out there that define sustainability, from energy, water, and waste, to biodiversity, culture, community and so on.
So join us as we, Mana Earthly Paradise, a eco hotel based in Ubud, Bali, try and crack this question! Asia’s Next Gen Hotels is a video series that scours Asia to find the most circular, sustainable properties around the region to share with you.
This series is produced by Mana and in collaboration with many of our value-aligned partners. We believe with this series and through our creative partnerships and collective impact - we can make the return of tourism become more inclusive, responsible and regenerative.
