Bali, November 27, 2015 –The 15th annual Tri Hita Karana Tourism Awards awarded Hard Rock Hotel Bali, Asia’s first Hard Rock Hotel, the recognition of Platinum at the prestigious industry-wide awards. The event was held at the Art Centre, in Denpasar.
Introduced in 2000, Tri Hita Karana (THK) is the life concept of the Balinese community in accomplishing secular and spiritual bliss through harmonization of the relationship between humans and God (parahyangan), human and human (pawongan), and human and environment (palemahan) into an integral unity. This concept originates from the teachings of the Hindu religion, but THK principles contain universal values. The categories for the awards are Silver, Gold, Emerald and Platinum. To select the award recipients, a team of surveyors from Tri Hita Karana Foundation visited and judged each of the participating Hotels in Bali.
After winning two Emerald awards consecutively in 2013 and 2014, Hard Rock Hotel Bali holds the Platinum in 2015. Hard Rock Hotel Bali shares this award with its band members and Rock Stars around the world. ““This award indicates how we can maintain our commitment towards the concept of Tri Hita Karana, reach harmony not only internally but also with our surroundings. We are proud to continue and support all sustainable environmental programs, especially the implementation of Tri Hita Karana values in our business to preserve local values, to protect the environment and to contribute to the local community, which is in-line with Hard Rock’s Mantras of “Love All Serve All” and “Save The Planet”, explains Shane Coates, General Manager, Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
