Translated as “surprise” in Sanskrit, Alila invites guests to take part in the Alila Experience, which allows guests to learn more about the local culture - and even about themselves - through a series of cultural activities. From culinary journeys to ancient healing arts and adrenaline sports, these experiences set Alila apart from other luxury hotels.

Alila also has a strong environmental commitment and adheres to the standards set by EarthCheck - the world's leading environmental program for the tourism and hospitality industry. With this system, Alila measures and regulates energy, paper, pesticide and water use, waste and emission levels, and how she interacts with the local community. Many of Alila's new properties are designed and built to strict EarthCheck standards.

Alila is committed to supporting the communities in which it operates, by giving priority work to local communities, increasing its workforce through education programs, and using products and services from local suppliers. In this way, Alila aims to have a positive impact - economically, socially and culturally - on her community.

The hallmark of each Alila property is the combination of innovative design and luxurious style, which creates a unique personality and distinct sense of place. Whatever destination guests choose, they are guaranteed a uniquely intimate experience.
