To support the value of local genius tourism, STPBI also actively engage in Tri Hita Karana Certification, a certification that adopt the Balinese Hindu philosophy of the balance relationship among GOD, Human, and Nature.

The basic values of the tri hita karana should always be present in all aspects of Balinese life. Basically, the tri hita karana implies a balanced relationship between human and God, human and fellow humans, as well as human and nature.

The basic idea implicitly contained in the tri hita karana is the principle of restriction. Everything created by God has a restriction, which has to be followed by the concept of control. Therefore, in order to achieve equilibrium, society must be able to exercise an effective system of control. This control has to be focused on the greed and desire of humans. Without the restriction of greed and desire, the balance of relationships in life will not be achieved. Bali’s development has to be based on the restriction of human greed and desire

Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali appeals through its sheer natural beauty of looming volcanoes and lush terraced rice fields that exude peace and serenity. Bali enchants with its dramatic dances and colourful ceremonies, its arts and crafts, to its luxurious beach resorts and exciting night life. For this exotic island has much to offer, from inspirational spirituality to fine dining and meeting experiences, from world class surfing and diving to exhilarating treks in the wild. And everywhere you will find intricately carved temples.

For, the Balinese, who embrace the Hindu religion, are a most devout people where a large part of their lives is dedicated to rites and ceremonies aimed at maintaining harmony in this world. Indeed, this relatively small island holds many surprises.
