Raffles Bali’s First Turtle Release, A Landmark in Conservation

Raffles Bali, the renowned luxury resort committed to sustainability and embracing the Tri Hita Karana concept, proudly announces the successful unveiling of its first turtle release. This significant event marks a milestone in the resort’s ongoing conservation efforts.

The journey began when the dedicated team at Raffles Bali discovered a nest of turtle eggs close to the pristine secluded Jimbaran beach. Recognizing the importance of safeguarding these precious eggs, the Raffles Bali Heartists sprang into action. They constructed a meticulously crafted turtle hatchery made entirely of sustainable bamboo, carefully placed on the beach to ensure the eggs remained safe from the reach of monitor lizards.

On the eventful day of May 22, 2023, the team at Raffles Bali discovered the turtle eggs and embarked on a mission to nurture and protect them until the time was right for their release. Weeks of unwavering dedication, round-the-clock monitoring, and expert care were invested to ensure the turtles’ well-being.

Finally, on July 11, 2023, a joyous occasion unfolded as the first batch of turtles hatched and made their way back to the sea. The heartfelt efforts of the Raffles Bali Heartists culminated in a triumphant release, symbolizing a significant step forward in the preservation of these magnificent creatures.

Raffles Bali took pride in extending an invitation to its esteemed guests to join this momentous turtle release activity. Guests had the privilege of witnessing the miracle of life and actively participating in the conservation journey. The shared experience fostered a deeper understanding of the importance of preserving the natural wonders that surround us.

This event aligns seamlessly with Raffles Bali’s unwavering commitment to sustainability and its dedication to the Tri Hita Karana concept, which harmonizes the relationship between humanity, the environment, and the divine. Raffles Bali continues to champion initiatives that have a positive impact on the local community, environment, and cultural heritage.

“We are delighted to have witnessed this remarkable turtle release event, which underscores our firm belief in the conservation of Bali’s rich natural heritage,” said Mr. Erlangga Farizky, Hotel Manager of Raffles Bali. “This initiative serves as a testament to our ongoing commitment to sustainability and our unwavering dedication to providing unforgettable experiences to our valued guests.”

In the future, Raffles Bali will collaborate with a local turtle conservation company in Bali to further improve our Turtle Release program and better manage turtle eggs.

Raffles Bali remains steadfast in its pursuit of excellence, striving to create a harmonious balance between luxury, conservation, and the preservation of Bali’s unique charm. The resort’s dedication to protecting the environment and fostering sustainable practices serves as an inspiration to both guests and the local community.
