Alam Santi is proud to support resorts and accommodations alike to implement ecotechnologies into their facilities and design. A great example of this work is Mana Ubud, a low-impact oasis situated in the heart of the spiritual center of Bali.
In Bali a philosophy named Tri Hita Karana is practiced, which embodies the harmony between people, the gods and the environment. Mana has taken the implementation of this philosophy into their own hands by creating the most sustainable ecodesign possible.
Mana Ubud’s Ecodesign Features Implemented through Alam Santi consulting
Solar power for all lighting - Lighting accounts for 6% of total CO2 emissions. At Mana Earthly Paradise 100% of lighting is powered by solar energy using My Sundaya's JouleBox solar system.
Rainwater for all w- Water pollution is widespread in Bali. The wastewater from the kitchen, showers and toilets are fed into the wastewater gardens and reused to grow plants and trees. In the wastewater gardens, the conditions of natural wetlands are reproduced. This allows for waste to be processed properly so the water of the island is not polluted ! throughout the hotel so tap water is safe to drink !

Toto & Wostman Eco Flush Toilets - Mana Ubud uses TOTO Eco Flush toilets in all the villas and Wostman UDT Eco Flush toilets in the public areas. An average person flushes 39L of water per day using a normal toilet. By simply shifting to an eco-friendly toilet bowl, water usage goes down to 4L per day, achieving an 86% reduction.
Other Ecodesign Features at Mana Ubud
Mana Earthy Paradise features 6 earth bag buildings that are the epitome of sustainable architecture. They are durable, ecological and have slow heat transfer. Once you step inside one of the houses, you feel surprised as it is cooler than outside.
RECLAIMED, UPCYCLED OR SUSTAINABLY-SOURCED WOOD - Deforestation currently accounts for 10-20% of global greenhouse gas emissions. All the woods used to build Mana Earthly Paradise is from reclaimed, upcycled or sustainably sourced wood, which means not a single tree was cut down for its construction.
NORNNORN MATTRESSES - All mattresses are rented through NornNorn, where a contract period is set for 7 years, and when it is complete, the rental company will disassemble the mattresses and recycle at least 90% of its components.
Mana Earthly Paradise is an example of an eco-resort that implements a wide range of sustainable technologies with the help of Alam Santi's sustainable development team. If your project is interested in adapting sustainable systems into its design contact us to discuss your vision.
