Sustainability is at the heart of our core values, focused on conserving the native flora and fauna for generations to come, embracing the unique culture and traditions of Cambodia, employing local hosts and giving back to the local community. Our hosts maintain small herb gardens that blend into the island's natural vegetation and landscape. On the mainland, we also tend a 40,000 square feet (3,700 square meter) organic farm producing much of our farm-to-table dinners and spa ingredients.
Join us to see our sustainability initiatives in action and how we create zero waste and eliminate plastic at our Earth Lab, come along to Marine Biology 101 or our butterfly conservation activities, and help support community education and marine conservation projects below.

All Six Senses resorts produce still and sparkling drinking water for guests and hosts to minimize the carbon footprint that results from the packaging and transport of water - it tastes great too. At Earth Lab, our center for environmental education and zero waste, we produce essential oils and natural cleaning products, and reduce emissions from long-distance transport as well as plastic. This limits our impact on the local environment while continuing to increase our energy efficiency and zero-waste.
As a result of sustainable planning, our resort blends into the natural vegetation, creating an environment that has become a paradise for birds and butterflies on land, and marine life underwater.
So far, our butterfly conservation program has recorded 23 species on the island, eight of which we are conserving through our pupae project in partnership with a local NGO, Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre.
We have launched Reef Protection Training Course run by four local dive instructors. We also integrate conservation into our Grow with Six Senses children's activities, which encourage future generations to become responsible individuals too.
We tend a 40,000 square feet (3,700 square meter) organic farm on the mainland in which seasonal, local produce is grown for kitchen ingredients, thus encouraging a farm-to-table practice. We keep 150 chickens for fresh eggs, eight goats for milk, and three pigs to responsibly dispose of any food waste. We have also coordinated with the non-profit association AllKids to establish 10 dedicated vegetable beds to grow and supply fresh produce to 60 daycare children.
We work hand in hand with our local Khmer communities to support school programs, participate in development initiatives and facilitate health and safety, and learning and training leading to a brighter future. We have been working directly with AllKids, Ream Primary School and M’Lop Tapang, to name just a few.
We contribute to AllKids, an NGO registered in Cambodia. The main objective is to support and educate disadvantaged children from nearby villages through scholarships, student transport and financial assistance for equipment. Funding the All Kids to School bus program provides 350 children transportation between villages, public school and the AllKids Learning Centre, six days a week.
We also support Ream local primary school with culturally significant events, such as funding traditional Apsara dance costumes for students and helping them learn organic agricultural practices to farm their own produce.
We collaborate with AllKids to supply clean water to Ream Primary School. This includes installing a 4 meter-high concrete stand accommodating a 5,000-liter water tank.
We're now planning to install a solar pump to reduce pumping costs and increase the amount of water available to 500 students and staff for hand washing and sanitation.
