Environmental and social sustainability activity policies and procedures are reviewed annually to ensure our approaches are always current.
Six Senses Fiji is home to 39 Fijian Crested iguanas, a critically endangered native species with less than 5,000 remaining in the world. With just 17 iguanas in the vicinity at the time of opening in April 2018, it is clear that they are successfully reproducing in their natural environment within the resort. We make every effort to ensure that these special residents are safe and that their habitat, between the villas and our spa, remains as it was found. This section of the resort is called the Iguana Reserve and as guests walk along the winding boardwalk through the trees, they may be able to catch a glimpse of one of the friendly fellas.
Encouraging local hire and development programs for our hosts, and the support of traditional cottage crafts are just part of our community commitments.
We offer apprenticeships and development programs to high potential Fijians with the goal to develop local talent. The resort is working with a number of cottage industries in order to support the local economy.
Six Senses Fiji also collaborates with Rise Beyond the Reef. This NGO works with women in remote communities teaching them to create marketable goods using traditional skills. These goods are used in our villas and restaurants and you can find many items on offer in the resort boutique. The profit from these products goes into alleviating poverty in the communities.
Six Senses Fiji works closely alongside Solevu Village on Malolo Island to ensure everyone can access the essentials in life. In 2019, we supplied the village with four new 20,000 liter water tanks to collect rain water during the rainy season and also store their water supply year round. During the dry season, Six Senses Fiji boosts support by providing large water containers to schools.
In 2020, the team helped to build a new bridge to improve access to Solve during the rainy season and at high tides. 600 local villagers regularly take the route, including 200 primary school children and 80 secondary schoolers.
Six Senses Fiji is proud to have become an official member of the South Pacific Tourism Organization (SPTO), which conducts vital research and monitoring to drive sustainable tourism and hotel operations and protect livelihoods and ecosystems throughout the region. As sustainability champions, Six Senses Fiji will be included in their promotions and will also benefit from professional advice and collaboration from their team and other partners on future sustainability solutions.
