Happy Earth Day
Sustainability an area where we must be a story-doer not a storyteller. Below are some of our sustainability impacts in 2023: • 69,698 kilograms of vegetables were produced and served in restaurants • 120,154 organic eggs contributed from happy Six Senses hens • 133,873 kilograms of compost was produced to enrich the soil • 1,920,659 plastic bottles avoided by refilling our own drinking water • 47.87 liters of honey produced • 1,711,531.89 kwh of renewable energy generated Within the world of hospitality, we believe we have created a niche by putting sustainability and well-being at the heart of what luxury means for us. #EarthDay #HappyEarthDay 💜🌍

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay discovers 200 year old tree
We are delighted to celebrate our 200-year-old cycad trees at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay - which are on the IUCN Red List of Endangered and Rare Forest Plants as Certified Vietnamese Heritage Trees by the Vietnam Association for Conservation of Nature and Environment. Together with GreenViet (an organization for biodiversity and wildlife conversation in Vietnam), we identified more than 100 cycad trees distributed across the area, among which nine over 100 years old have been certified as Heritage Trees. The oldest – 200 years – is located in the heart of the resort near the Crystal Water Plant. We hope that Six Senses Ninh Van Bay continues to be a biologically diverse ecosystem that creates a perfect natural habitat not only for cycad trees but also for other flora and fauna to thrive in.
