Farm on the Hill
Our latest sustainability initiative
We’ve just unveiled our Farm on the Hill that we have established in the quest to be even more environmentally conscious and to offer an authentic Thai farm experience to guests.
The farm may be small, yet it adds big purpose and value to the resort’s operation while benefitting the local community. The farm’s inception was born from a landscaping necessity, which includes a large volume of organic waste generated (e.g. branch trimmings), unutilized grey water, and lack of nutrient rich soil. All the resort needed was 15-20 goats, 80 chickens, one simple greywater catchment system and the problem was solved.
Six Senses Samui now has nutrient rich soil and is able to produce organic eggs, goat milk and an abundant crop of fresh vegetables. Other valuable features include a natural reed bed system that filters and remineralizes the grey water, which can be used for irrigation; a creative waste to wealth garden and a module aquaponic system that is solely constructed from reclaimed waste materials.
Farm on the Hill is not only a sensible step in the right direction, it has also become a popular fun and learning experience for all ages. Guests, hosts and the local community can enjoy feeding the goats, collecting newly laid eggs and even picking organic produce for their next meal. Driven by the passion and commitment of the resort’s engineering and gardening teams, this space adds value to guests’ experiences.
Guests can reserve Farm on the Hill for dinner and take in a private sunset tour of the grounds before enjoying a rurally-wholesome Thai barbecue.
