In recent years Six Senses Samui has initiated many projects to minimize our impact on the environment and our local community.
Examples of projects to minimize our environmental impact include creating our own bio-diesel, filtering and recycling our wastewater, plus working together with UNICEF and Restaurants Against Hunger. Currently we are looking at initating many more projects at our Heart of the House area focusing on supporting the environment.
Six Senses Samui makes sure that it keeps the environment surrounding the Front of the House and Heart of the House clean. During the year, groups of hosts go out on the beach or spread out over the island to collect garbage that has collected in the ditches next to the road or that has gathered in the shrubs.
Acknowledging that today's children are our future generation, we attempt to eliminate barriers to their education by providing support in school activities and supply stationery needs to assist in their schooling. in return, we are invited to use the school’s sport facilities such as volleyball, basketball and football fields. This is where our hosts get together to play sport, keep fit and engage in local sports competitions.
We are keen to grow our community service programs as they ultimately improve the education of our children well beyond the usual local levels.
Our mission is also to raise public awareness as well as maintain a mutual relationship between the resort and community.
The painting of the Baan Plai Laem School is just one example of a social contribution project carried out by the Social Contribution Programme at Six Senses Samui. A team of 40 resort hosts participated in the painting of the school’s external walls resulting in a brighter impression for local residents and for visitors to Samui. It was the second such project between Six Senses Samui and the Baan Plai Laem School. In February, hosts, whose birthday fell in that month, celebrated by preparing and serving lunch at the local school.
The resort is committed to putting its financial and human resources into the local community and plans to carry out environmental projects, educational awareness campaigns and community partnership projects like those carried out with Baan Plai Laem School, in the local Bangrak area.
