Our passion to support and protect the environment has been recognized by National Geographic Traveler magazine, who rates us one of the world’s top eco lodges.
We’ve restored our beach to optimize egg laying for green turtles and decrease the mortality rate of turtle hatchings. This ambitious project in cooperation with Con Dao National Park authorities, included a safe incubation enclosure to protect eggs from threats such as poaching. Guests are encouraged to participate in ethical hatchling releases. If lucky enough you will get to watch a mama sea turtle laying her eggs right on the resort premise.
Our efforts also extend to conducting training programs on sea turtle conservation for our hosts and in the local community, with a vision to involve more marine scientists in research projects on the future of the turtles around Con Dao.
The resort collects bio-waste from the kitchen which is then added to garden waste to make compost. The resulting product is used for the organic garden to increase fertility in the soil.
Our extensive organic garden grows more than 30 types of plants including fruit, vegetables and herbs. This garden is also watered by treated wastewater.
In line with efforts to reduce packaging, a mushroom hut on the property is a nice place to bring guests, not only fresh produce but also interesting an experience when they harvest the mushrooms during a chef-accompanied tour and later enjoy a signature dish with the harvest incorporated as an ingredient.
We provide still and sparkling remineralized drinking water to all our guests and hosts from an on-site reverse osmosis plant. Water is bottled in reusable glass bottles to limit the use of plastic bottles. This saves around 10,000 plastic bottles per month from polluting the landfill and being abandoned in other areas. Not only is it healthier for the environment and better for you, it wins in taste tests too!
At Six Senses Con Dao, we have installed solar panels at all guest villas to reduce the consumption and reliance on electricity for heating water. By harnessing this energy, we are making good use of the vast number of sunny days we enjoy in Con Dao.
Our 7,000 islanders enjoy all levels of education running at virtually full capacity, the result of the high emphasis given to educating the young.
Community education is key in making lasting impacts, which has motivated us to organize a wide range of activities, from teaching English to raising environmental awareness for school children. English classes are conducted three times each week, with enthusiastic guests invited to share their English-speaking skills. We run monthly environmental workshops involving kindergarten children and have introduced a series of life-skill activities to the community, such as swimming, using a mobile swimming pool and in collaboration with an established NGO, Swim Vietnam.
