Getting down was easy.
Members of the management and staff of the Ubud luxury boutique property Puri Wulandari recently climbed down the 100 meter embankment of the Ayung River, in front of the hotel, to undertake a clean up campaign of the river and its surroundings.
Armed with blades for clearing the underbrush, trash bags, and an arsenal of traditional "sapu lidi," traditional brooms, the team removed fallen trees and branches left by recent rains, cleaned the riverbank, and celebrated it call with a light picnic repast on the riverbank.
The event, held on February 2, 2002, was part of the Resort's regular monthly cleaning "blitz" done to preserve their natural surroundings.
"It is a wonderful exercise to grow the staffís' sense of belonging, while making sure that they are aware and concerned with the surrounding environment," said owner Rudy Nooryaldie. "We should never forget that we are just a small part of this great surrounding of natural beauties and it is our responsibility to make sure that everything is well-kept and in-place," he added.
