Six Senses Samui is continually developing new initiatives and procedures to minimize our impact on the environment.
Farm on the Hill is where we minimize the resort’s environmental footprint by converting waste into wealth from compost to charcoal. We share our efforts with the local community and government as an example of how circularity can be successfully implemented in a hotel operation.
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.
Six Senses Samui is very active in the community and participates regularly in events to raise awareness for sustainability related topics such as Zero Waste, Circularity, Local Sourcing and Plastic Free.
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.
On the final Sunday of every month, Six Senses actively participates in a green market, joining hands with the local community and other hospitality organizations. This event is held at the Greenlight Café in Fisherman's Village and focuses on promoting organic products that support the local community and raise awareness about environmentally-friendly produce. We bring the "good stuff" from our Farm on the Hill, including herbs, veggies, eggs from our happy hens and ducks, as well as charcoal produced from recycled wood. Alongside these, our skilled chefs offer yummy, healthy food and drinks.
As part of our commitment to the community, we pledge to donate 10 percent of all profits directly to local community initiatives.
