The implementation of green hospitality business practices also pays attention to the balance of environmental; economic; and social life. So; maintaining environmentally friendly cultural tourism is important for hotel management. The research objective is to analyze the implementation of green hospitality business practices at an operational level in a 5-star hotel in Bali. The sampling technique used is purposive sampling with a sample size of 36 respondents and 6 hotels. The data analysis method used is qualitative descriptive technique; which is an analytical one to take a picture of a phenomenon and explain the relationship. The result of this study reveals that green hospitality practices at the hotel operational level in Bali are following the committed policies: vision and mission are in line with the standard operating procedures (SOP) for each activity. Environmental conservation awareness has been implemented through energy and water efficiency; waste management has been applied by implementing reuse and recycling programs. Social concern has been implemented through Community Involvement Project (CIP) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. The practice of green at the operational level is positive and has resulted in supporting sustainable tourism. The uniqueness of the application of green hospitality as a competitive advantage is carried out with harmonious interactions between management and operational staff. An interesting finding from this study is that most respondents strongly agree with the fact that the hotel must build a network with other hotels implementing green business practices and integrating locals; government and private sectors and traditional villages as in the last two years they have implemented green practices. This shows that the practice of green hospitality business practices is used as a tool to improve hotel competitiveness by collaborating with surround hotels that carry the green paradigm. Further research should be carried out to support green-based tourism activities to stimulate the economy of local communities as hosts of tourism activities.
