Conscious travel

We have taken care to ensure that the places we recommend on this website respect Bali's people, culture, traditions and environment, and that the local economy benefits from guests. That said, there are some hotels that make considerably more effort than others to ensure their operations are fair and sustainable, and these are the ones we have chosen to highlight below. Also included are small family businesses and community projects that are particularly worthy of support.
