Love your earth

March 10, 2021 - Being environmentally friendly and socially responsible has always been central to our operations. By staying with us, you contribute too. To mark World Wildlife Day, here are our latest wildlife and community impact figures.

On March 3, the UN’s World Wildlife Day celebrated human well-being and the long-term conservation of forests. It highlighted the value of traditional practices and knowledge that contribute a more sustainable relationship with crucial wild flora and fauna.

We’re all part of a global community in a shared home: Earth. That’s why all of our properties are not just passionate about sustainability, they are mandated to meet specific targets when it comes to protecting and regenerating wildlife, habitats and local communities.

Positive impact on our wildlife and habitats

At Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, eight black-shanked douc langur monkeys were born during 2020. This increases the population to a total of 109 protected monkeys living in and around the property. The species is sadly critically endangered, so our conservation work is carried out in close collaboration with GreenViet, a local NGO specialized in biodiversity research and conservation in that area.

In the Seychelles, we were delighted that, at the last count, 1,907 baby turtles hatched on the beaches of Six Senses Zil Pasyon. The resort works with TAGS (Turtle Action Group Seychelles) to monitor and identify the sea turtle populations in the Seychelles.

We also welcomed baby turtles in Vietnam. In 2020, 634 turtles hatched on the beaches of Six Senses Con Dao. Over the years, the resort has optimized its beaches for egg laying as part of an ambitious project in cooperation with Con Dao National Park authorities. Guests are encouraged to participate in ethical hatchling releases too.

In the Maldives, marine biologists at the award-winning Maldives Underwater Initiative (MUI) are based at Six Senses Laamu. They work with three partner NGOs on conservation, research, guest education and community outreach:

  • Olive Ridley Project protects sea turtles from threats and works with the resort to safeguard the turtle population. The resort welcomed 241 turtle hatchlings throughout 2020.
  • In collaboration with the Manta Trust, 443 surveys on mantas have been conducted and two endangered species are protected through on-site research and conservation efforts.
  • Together with partners Blue Marine Foundation, a huge 116,695 square meters of seagrass is now protected at Six Senses Laamu. The project continues to raise awareness about the importance of seagrass meadows in marine eco systems.

Budding conservationists are invited to join our marine biologists for action-packed on-site experiences

Positive impact on our local communities

Sustainability is the byword for every department at Six Senses Yao Noi. Everything they do takes into account the following six Rs: Rethink, Responsible, Respect, Refuse, Reuse and Recycle. In partnership with Imagine Thailand, the resort has installed and maintained water filters across the whole island of Yao Noi. This enables 105,000 community members in the area to access clean drinking water.  

On the other side of Thailand, Six Senses Samui has engaged with many community members, among them 750 students, to raise awareness about the plastic problem through educational events and beach clean-ups. On the supplier side, the resort’s plastic ban asks for cooperation to avoid single-use plastic and switch to better alternatives such as cloth bags or reusable containers.

In Vietnam, Six Senses Con Dao engages more than 1,200 students in various community outreach programs, educating them on waste management and living plastic free.

Since its opening at the end of 2018, Six Senses Krabey Island in Cambodia has also continued to build very strong relationships with its community. In 2020 alone, more than a ton of trash was collected during beach clean-ups. The resort also ran educational events such as the Young Entrepreneurs course, during which our Six Senses hosts volunteered to teach young adults a range of business and leadership skills. Through 2020, 491 students were given access to education. In addition, Six Senses Krabey Island works closely with AllKids, an NGO that educates disadvantaged children through scholarships, student transportation and financial assistance for equipment.

At Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman, projects offer financial aid for women’s associations, sponsorship for local sports clubs and medical aid too. In 2020, the resort contributed over USD 250,000 to build a radiology unit for the local hospital.
