Six Senses Samui has always been at the forefront of sustainability, carefully considering the effects that operating systems, materials and purchasing policies have on the environment. Our initiatives and procedures achieved a Green Globe 21 benchmark in December 20, 2006 for water saving, waste recycling, community commitment, community contributions, paper products and non-harmful pesticide products.
Six Senses Samui is continually developing new initiatives and procedures to minimize our impact on the environment.
Six Senses Samui is located on a headland on the northern tip of Samui Island. It is set on 20 acres of indigenous plantings and offers stunning views of the surrounding sea and outlying islands.
Six Senses is an acknowledged industry leader in sustainability practices through careful consideration of the effects that operating systems, materials and purchasing policies have on the environment. We are therefore continually developing new initiatives and procedures to minimize our impact on the environment.
We like to be a little bit different - a little bit quirky. And when this can be combined with sustainability, we’ve created a win-win proposition.
Farm on the Hill is the latest sustainable initiative in our quest to minimize the resort’s environmental footprint by converting waste into wealth (valuable by-products), sharing our efforts with the local community and government as an example of what can be done with a little thought and funds.
Precision air conditioning is a system that precisely controls the temperature and humidity levels within our rooms. They absorb hot air and release cool air in return. The absorbed heat is stored and later used to heat the water in the room. With a PAC system in place, the water is already at a higher initial temperature and therefore requires less heating, thus reduces energy consumption.
In recent years Six Senses Samui has initiated many projects to minimize our impact on the environment and our local community.
Examples of projects to minimize our environmental impact include creating our own biodiesel, filtering and recycling our wastewater, plus working together with UNICEF and Restaurants Against Hunger. Currently we are looking at initiating many more projects in the Heart of the House area focusing on supporting the environment.

Community engagement is the heart of Six Senses Samui. As active members of the community, we continuously support, educate and join in several environmental activities. This includes beach cleaning with Trash Hero's, local school projects (Fix’s & Improvements), community markets, tree planting and much more. In addition, we provide funding and hands to supply hospitals and schools with much needed equipment.
As plastic has become a worldwide issue, Six Senses Samui launched a plastic banning campaign with hosts which started with all team members saying no to plastic. Instead of carrying plastic items on property, hosts were given stainless steel water bottles and cotton bags as alternatives. On the supplier side, we have drafted a plastic banning policy asking for their cooperation to avoid single-use plastic and switch to better alternatives such as cloth bags or reusable containers instead.
Every six weeks, Six Senses participates in a green market alongside the community and other hospitality related organizations. Organic products are sold to support the local community while raising awareness of environmental-friendly produce. The event usually takes place at the Elysia Boutique Resort, but twice annually Six Senses Samui has the honor of hosting the gathering at Farm on the Hill. The products sold vary from vegetables, biocharcoal, eggs and homemade pastries, donating 10 percent of all profits directly to local community initiatives.
