What better say to celebrate Earth Day than to shine a light on Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas whose incredible brand is built around the three pillars of wellness, crafted experiences, and of course, sustainability. As each year goes by, more and more Six Senses properties are going waste-free and plastic-free, as well as integrating innovative off-grid solar installations and carbon-neutral stays—helping to do their own part in slowing the trajectory of climate change, which grows fundamentally more interconnected and integral to the travel and hospitality sphere with every moment.

Six Senses has always emphasis the importance of becoming self-sustaining, regenerative, and collaborative with NGOs around conservation, community, culture, and commerce. Protecting and regenerating the vital ecosystems at their properties around the world, both on land and underwater, is of utmost importance, but Six Senses also prides itself in making the sustainability experience fun, educational, and for the youngsters, playful; it’s never to early to be the change we want to see in the world!

Six Senses’ children’s program, Grow With Six Senses, incorporates the six dimensions of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual) in each activity, so children have the space to be curious about our natural world and inspire them to protect fragile ecosystem, which will soon be theirs to inherit. Nature-based learning activities include visits to Six Senses organic gardens to learn where your food comes from and give kids the chance and roll up their sleeves and get a little dirty and a lot playful, which is seen at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay’s Climate Warriors program. For children in local communities, Six Senses also partners with Public Health experts to run educational programming in schools.

Sustainability is never seen as a sacrifice or a burden but more a way of life that is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of each property.  An important aspect of their environmental efforts is making sure to connect to local communities, so the properties employ and source locally. Six Senses also created a Sustainability Fund to help invest in projects outside of the property, while their Reconnect with Others initiative aims to provide water stations and new ways for guests to experience local communities as partners.

Each Six Senses property also offers an Earth Lab, an innovative and interactive way to engage guests on their sustainability initiatives through education and provides ways in which they can choose to get involved. Six Senses Douro Valley offers a Nature to Nurture program to learn how to use natural ingredients from pickles to body scrubs to heal you inside and out.

While Six Senses expands its brand with exciting new openings as well as new environmental initiatives, there are so many properties to visit and explore. Sustainable highlights from their expansive collection include Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman, where booking the Carbon Neutral rate ensures that any carbon produced during the stay be completely offset. Six Senses Fiji operates one of the largest off-grid solar installations in the Southern Hemisphere using Tesla batteries, producing 100 percent power for the resort, and Six Senses Ibiza has achieved a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions via their solar and geothermal system on-site.
