Staying true to our core values, Six Senses Uluwatu, Bali has implemented a series of sustainability initiatives designed to reduce the energy, water and waste involved with every guest’s stay. We actively raise awareness in our local communities on being environmentally and socially responsible, and welcome our guests and our hosts to learn more during our garden tours, meeting out friendly chicken & goats, learning about composting, and workshops in our Earth Lab.
Food and landscaping waste is fed to our chickens and goats, and we collect the manure for our organic garden. Kitchen oil is converted to biodiesel. Grey and black water is treated onsite and then mixed with rainwater catchment for reuse in landscape gardening and fire hydrant storage. Well water from the resort’s own source is purified with sand filters and reverse osmosis filters before being bottled on site.

Bali Starling bird (Leucopsar rothschildi) has been the official mascot of Bali since 1991. However, it has been declared as critically endangered by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) since 1994 and the main reason for its decline has been the wholesale removal of the bird from its natural habitat to Europe, the loss of its habitat and the continued poaching for the pet trade. Six Senses Uluwatu supports Begawan Foundation, an NGO focusing on breeding and release programs of Bali Starling birds. Between 1999 and 2005, the foundation’s captive population grew from four to 97 birds, and in total. Between 2005 and 2012, around 80 Bali Starlings were released into the wild and another 28 birds were released by the end of 2021.
We liaise with our suppliers to make their packaging more sustainable, requesting they eliminate unnecessary materials such as plastic bags or wrapping. Where possible we purchase in bulk and use a system of returnable boxes and containers. In food production, plastic bags and plastic film is replaced with washable bins or linen bags. We also encourage guests not to wrap their luggage with plastic film.
Employing locally is one of our social commitments, together with internships, work experience programs and supporting street children.
Education is key in supporting development, empowering future generations, and empowering less privileged children with employment opportunities or an enhanced livelihood. At Six Senses Uluwatu Bali, we regularly engage with local schools on sustainable topics. In 2021, we improved access to education and skill training for 70 students. The resort also offers six-months' internships to high-performing school students and work experience opportunities for university students majoring in tourism.
