In 2023, the resort delved into Indonesia’s unique culture, cuisine, biodiversity, art, and sustainability through a series of programmes. Determined to keep the legacy alive, in 2024 impactful collaborations continue being fostered, fusing Indonesia’s diversity through one powerful movement, the ‘Powerful Indonesia: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika’ campaign. The thoughtfully curated programmes are to be presented quarterly, encompassing the themes of sustainability, craftsmanship, and equality.

Sustainability has been part of the resort’s Brand Strategy Roadmap since the onset of its opening. It will continue to be at the core of its coming five years’ strategies and operations, reflecting on the resort’s four pillars of sustainability. Firstly, in an effort to preserve the culture, the resort continues to highlight the uniqueness of Indonesia’s seven main regions through various offerings, including in-room amenities, dining, wellness, arts and crafts, traditional games, and resort activities. Subsequently, to encourage local empowerment, the resort nurtures a deeper engagement with the local communities while favouring their local produce and cultivating the hospitality industry’s next-generation talents through a series of enriching programmes. In the commitment to protect the environment, the resort focuses on decarbonisation efforts and preserving Indonesia’s biodiversity, amongst other initiatives such as initiating Free-Range Chicken Farming in addition to its Sustainable Agriculture programme. Ultimately, the implemented initiatives will lead to The Apurva Kempinski being perceived as a valuable business that substantially contributes to the local economy while complying with the industry’s standards on an international level to solidify its stance on sustainable practices.

Furthermore, the ‘Powerful Indonesia: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika’ continue to embrace the intricate legacy of artistry woven into every craft. Collaborations with influential figures remain an integral part of celebrating Indonesian art’s timeless essence and innovative spirit. This year, the stage is set to highlight time-honoured traditions passed through generations to contemporary expressions through dance, music, fashion, visual art, installations, literature, and photography.

Finally, the commitment to inclusivity and equal opportunity extends to fostering an environment where everyone feels welcomed and respected. The resort shares the stage with inspiring talents who would mesmerise the guests and the public with their unique abilities and perspectives showcased through a series of programmes as part of the ‘Powerful Indonesia: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika’ campaign.
