Six Senses Yao Noi uses the purchasing power we have to influence suppliers in responsible practices. We do consider supplier's environmental commitment before choosing one, and consider the products offered.
Wherever possible, we favour locally sourced and environmentally sound products. We also encourage our suppliers to reduce packaging and deliver in bulk to reduce waste and the greenhouse gas emissions produced.
To be part of responsible purchasing, local goods and crafts such as batik painting products are available as souvenirs. These products represent Koh Yao Noi, while financially supporting the local community. We ask guests to refrain from buying shell pieces or things collected from nature, such as animal products or plants.
Six Senses Yao Noi, together with the Women’s Club of Koh Yao Noi provide batik-painting lessons at which our guests can learn how to do a batik painting whilst at the same time supporting the local community.
