Prime Plaza Suites Sanur - Bali Receives Emerald At the Tri Hita Karana Awards Night
Tri Hita Karana is a Balinese Hindu concept that relates three sources of harmony and balance, between humanity and God almighty (Parhyangan), between humans and humans (Pawongan), and between humans and the environment (Palemahan). These three sources are important to the Balinese community in order to create harmony and to give balance in life.
Prime Plaza Suites Sanur – Bali is proud to announce that for three consecutive years we have been awarded the Emerald Tri Hita Karana award. Tri Hita Karana accreditation is organized by the Tri Hita Karana Bali foundation and is fully supported by the Bali Government. The award recognizes the above practices that the hotel has incorporated into its business practices in order to work in a peaceful and harmonious way.
There are five categories of the awards: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Emerald, and Platinum. It is indeed a great privilege to be awarded the Emerald category; it showcases how serious Prime Plaza Suites Sanur - Bali is in constantly maintaining the environmental aspects of life amongst the community.
Our General Manager, Mr. Stuart Bolwell says, "We are committed towards supporting the Tri Hita Karana’s principles in our daily operation, in order to preserve local values, protect the environment and to contribute towards the local community, for 2018 we will be aiming for the highest category, PLATINUM.
Update with Mount Agung
A message from the Bali Tourism Board on Mount Agung:
An exclusion zone covering approximately 10km radius from the Mountain's peak has been determined as being at direct threat from any potential eruption. The Balinese community living in the exclusion zone have been temporary relocated to camps outside the zone under threat. If a large scale eruption should tale place, we would anticipate no casualties.
Outside the exclusion zone lays the rest of Bali, an area equivalent to 98% of the Island's land mass where visitors are still enjoying a carefree and safe holiday.
The fear of potentially being stranded in has been addressed by establishing alternative routes via land and sea to other gateways, such as Surabaya and Banyuwangi in East Java. The airport closed once for just 2.5 days in late November, and guests needing to continue their travels were able to do so via Surabaya or
Banyuwangi to connect with domestic and international flights. Should another temporary closure occur, Bali's Governor has stated that transportation to Surabaya will be provided to visitors who are unable to wait for the reopening of Bali Airport
Cultural Event: Tumpek Kandang
Tumpek Kandang is a day dedicated to animals, livestock and pets. It is a Balinese tradition to show gratitude to these animals that have been helping them in daily life. The Tumpek Kandang is celebrated on the 20th January 2018. On Tumpek kandang day, the Balinese present an offering to “Rare Angon”, the shepherd to celebrate all kinds of animals. The animals also provide harmony, which contributes to human substance (with livestock) and happiness with our pets. If you happen to be in Bali on this day, don’t miss this one of a kind tradition.

1. Family and Friends Holiday by Kimmiewatt
We came to Bali to celebrate my sisters 40th birthday. There were 20 people in our group, young families, couples and grandparents. So we had a lot of different budgets and requirements for our stay in Bali. We all loved staying here, the staff were excellent, the facilities more than adequate and the area great. Our rooms were fantastic, clean and large.
2.It’s the little things by: michelle_I_co
Although the customer service, cleanliness, value for $, rooms, amenities & activities were exceptional, it was the 2 toned folded towel animals & messages made out of tongue depresses etc that were meticulously laid out on my bed each day that made it that little bit more special.
