Bali, September 2023 – Inspiral Architecture and Design Studio is thrilled to announce that Ulaman Eco-Luxury Resort has been honored with the Sustainability special award at the AHEAD Asia Awards 2023. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to creating an environmentally conscious and sustainable resort. 

Our locally sourced bamboo structures, complemented by rammed earth walls for insulation, showcase our dedication to utilizing eco-friendly materials. Furthermore, we have provided specialist construction training to the local community to ensure the maintenance of these structures.  The open-plan design of our resort promotes natural ventilation, reducing the need for artificial cooling systems. Additionally, we have implemented renewable energy sources such as turbines, hydro, and solar electricity to power the resort, further minimizing our carbon footprint.  To enhance its sustainability efforts, Ulaman Eco-Luxury Resort has incorporated various operational processes, including greywater systems and organic farm-to-table dining. These initiatives not only contribute to our eco-friendly practices but also provide our guests with a unique and wholesome experience. 


 “We hope in the future, sustainability will no longer be a distinct category, but rather an integral element in all building designs,” said Charlie Hearn, the director of Inspiral Architecture and Design Studios. In addition to the Sustainability special award, we are delighted to have also been recognized in the Lodges, Cabins, and Tented Camps category. These new villas feature the same iconic bamboo architecture, natural stone, recycled timbers, and the warm tones of rammed earth that have become synonymous with our eco-resort. This integration of sustainable systems and captivating architectural design truly sets our villas apart.
