We comply with all of Six Senses initiatives and wherever possible go beyond Vietnamese and international environmental requirements.
The forested hills surrounding our isolated bay are inaccessible by road and therefore protected from poaching and habitat encroachment by farming and development. We are blessed with a healthy community of rare Pygathrix Nigripes monkeys, the black shanked douc langur. The area we protect extends into the hills and includes a reservoir often visited by the langurs during the dry season. Naturally quite shy, it is a rare privilege to encounter them, however we can arrange hikes into the hills where you may have unscripted encounters with these and other local wildlife.
We have adopted energy efficient light bulbs controlled by sensors, timers, dimmers and other devices throughout the property to ensure we reduce energy consumption. We have also added solar panels for water heating in the villas and for pathway lighting, saving five percent of all electricity consumed on the property.
Crown of thorn starfish are the main threat to coral as they prey on the reefs. In 2017, we implemented a sustainable way to remove them: mixing one part of vinegar and one part of lime juice then injecting the solution into their body. After they die, they are a natural source of food for the reef fish. We also collaborate with Oceanography Institute to research and survey the coral and plan for its restoration. This year, we launched the coral restoration program with a feasibility study which is expected to successfully nurse more than 80 percent of transplanted coral pieces back to health.
Earth Lab is a dedicated space located close to the resort's entrance near the Jetty, acting as an information center where we share our sustainability projects and initiatives. Earth Lab also reveals scientific yet practical facts and figures that offer awareness and impart information to persuade visitors to modify their daily behavior and encourage sustainable practices. The tour is a chance to gain insights into our sustainability projects and initiatives such as the mushroom hut, organic garden, chicken farm, alembic distilling, water treatment and solar hot water system.
From drinking water projects to educational programs and employment, we maintain positive relationships with our greater community.
Our guests and hosts enjoy still and sparkling remineralized drinking water from an on-site reverse osmosis plant, which is bottled in reusable glass bottles. This saves around 10,000 plastic bottles per month from entering the resort and going to landfill. We are committed to building and maintaining positive connections with local communities and providing drinking water systems in a number of areas.
We have provided computers and other equipment to schools in the Luong Son and Ninh Van areas so that the teachers and students have a more effective way of teaching and learning.
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay also supports Nha Trang University students on their three- to four-day charitable trips to remote communities to provide life skill lessons and basic facilities such as street lights, organic gardens, playgrounds for children and more. This activity not only supports ethnic groups but also helps to encourage students in doing good things and improve their organizational skills.
