Over the past 16 years, Six Senses has been bottling its own still and sparkling drinking water. By establishing on-site filtration and bottling facilities, each resort eliminates the transportation impacts and use of plastic water bottles. Six Senses drinking water has proved a taste-test winner with guests also.

Each Six Senses resort and hotel features an Earth Lab, which promotes sustainable living in inspirational and innovative ways. The space is used to host workshops that empower guests and community members to learn about and connect more closely with the natural world.

Sustainability Funds

Sustainability Funds are managed at each Six Senses property with sales added directly from house-bottled water and popular stuffed animal mascots that reflect each location.

Although 2020 was challenging for the tourism sector as a whole, collectively Six Senses achieved its sustainability targets once again, thanks to the commitment of its hosts, their families, local community partners, and guests too.

Here are the latest figures reported for 2020:

  • 111,385 people gained access to clean drinking water and sanitation
  • 260,555 square meter of protected/ restored Habitat    

  • 19,084 kilograms of trash was collected voluntarily by our hosts, community members and guests

  • 16,730 community member joined our events helping the environment and supporting communities        

  • 2,792  endangered sea turtles hatched on our beaches

  • 820 coral fragments were successfully planted                                         

  • We engaged 2,824 hosts to participate in Plastic Free Training

  • 2,954 of our hosts participated in Zero Waste Training

  • We provided access to education and skill trainings to 4,195 local people

  • More than 17,000 local community members, hosts and their families supported positive impact events, with an extra 4,317 guests helping out

  • Hosts dedicated around 2,000 hours to volunteering in their local communities

In the past year, even when closed to guests, properties were very supportive of local efforts to relieve the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“This year proved once again how being environmentally and socially responsible can be successfully wedded to uncompromising guest hospitality,” said Six Senses Vice President of Sustainability Jeff Smith. “What was even more remarkable was that, our hosts and community partners remained galvanized, volunteering their time to help those in need and giving back for community and wildlife.”
