We are committed to improving the ecological and carbon footprint of our resort and spa operations by monitoring our performance against targets and goals. In 2020, we collected over 4,000 kg of trash from local beaches and gave away 500 reusable linen bags at Vinh Luong market. Every little bit helps!

We operate in line with the high standards set out by Six Senses and wherever possible go beyond Vietnamese and international environmental requirements.
Included in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and Vietnam’s Red Book, the black-shanked douc langur is only found in Southern Vietnam and Eastern Cambodia. The Hon Heo mountain area behind us is one of the prevalent habitats, where langurs visit the reservoir 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 recently collaborated with the NGO Green Viet, where biologists have identified 109 individuals around our resort, 19 plant specifies on which langur feed, and also 20 popular behaviors - do ask our team for more details.
The resort employs a full-time resident biologist from GreenViet, Mr. Ninh, who works closely with our team to introduce exciting wildlife and conservation experiences for our guests including guided hiking trips to learn about forest life and how the resort is studying and protecting the langurs.
We launched a coral propagation program in collaboration with the Institute of Oceanography in Nha Trang to protect and preserve the marine ecosystem surrounding our resort. The resort’s shores are fringed by natural coral reefs that are biologically diverse and a great asset for snorkelers.
The team carefully transplants coral fragments onto artificial reef structures and monitors the growth and types of marine life attracted. By increasing the reproduction of the most successful clones, scientists hope to develop more resilient coral offspring that can withstand higher ocean temperatures and global warming. By 2020, we had successfully transplanted 800 coral fragments into 23 coral frames in the sea.
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 also provide filtration drinking water systems in a number of local communities, for example two local primary schools Dai Lanh 2 (Van Ninh district) and Cam Duc 2 (Cam Lam district). The 293 students of the two schools are now provided with clean water, dramatically decreasing the number of plastic bottles needing to be purchased.
