Six Senses shows regenerative impacts from 2020

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.

For Six Senses, sustainability is only the first step in establishing a reciprocal relationship with local ecosystems, communities and cultures. Going beyond protection, acting as a regenerative business adds value to all local stakeholders (whether human, animal or plant) with the ultimate aim of Six Senses giving back more than it takes.

Recognizing that it is no use talking about positive impacts without tracking them, here are the latest figures reported for 2020:

2020 Impacts Outside the Property (Community):

  • More than 17,000 local community members, hosts and their families supported positive impact events, with an extra 4,317 guests helping out.
  • In fact, hosts dedicated around 2,000 hours to volunteering in their local communities.
  • Passing the legacy on to younger generations, 4,195 local people gained access to education and skills training.
  • Installing water filters meant 111,385 people received clean drinking water and sanitation.
  • A further 536,240 people benefited from improved access to healthcare programs and provision of medical equipment.

2020 Impacts Outside the Property (Environment):

  • Going beyond protection into habitat restoration, 26 hectares (260,555 square meters) of habitat is now secure, which is enough to cover 36 soccer pitches.
  • This includes planting coral (820 fragments), protecting turtle eggs (2,792 hatchlings) and measuring the increase in target wildlife species (675).

Perhaps the most heartening of all is the ramp-up in efforts to protect 10 species that are listed as endangered or critically endangered. Six Senses now works to save marine life (green and hawksbill turtles, ornate eagle rays, gray reef sharks, whale sharks, giant guitarfish and Napoleon wrasses), land animals (Fijian crested iguanas and black-shanked douc langurs) and birdlife (Bali starlings).

2020 Impacts Inside the Property

From candles to cleaning solutions, sustainability is the byword for every department in every resort. Farm-to-table initiatives encompass the organic kitchen gardens, farms and mushroom huts and water is produced on-site. Six Senses works with local suppliers to eliminate the use of plastic packaging and food miles and its circular economy approach encompasses: rethink, responsible, respect, refuse, reuse and recycle.

  • Renewable electricity generated exceeded 370,788 kWh, enough to power 15 World Cup soccer matches.
  • 617,102 glass bottles of home-produced water were given to guests.
  • 88,724 organic eggs were served in restaurants along with 195,602 pounds (88,724 kilograms) of organic vegetables (roughly the weight of 51 camels).
  • 134,082 pounds (60,819 kilograms) of compost was produced to enrich the soil.

Relief Efforts

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, for example by donating food 4,731 pounds (2,146 kilograms), and supplies (benefiting 3,515 people), and volunteering their time (1,500 hours and counting).

This year proved once again how being environmentally and socially responsible can be successfully wedded to uncompromising guest hospitality,  says Jeff Smith, Six Senses vice-president of sustainability, was even more remarkable in a year such as 2020 was that, even for the periods when resorts sadly had to close, our hosts and community partners remained galvanized, volunteering their time to help those in need and giving back for community and wildlife.

Positive Impacts Start with Meaningful Actions …

Each Six Senses resort and hotel features an Earth Lab, dedicated to engagement and innovation, which promotes sustainable living in inspirational 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.

To highlight some of the daily activities, Six Senses has been running an Earth Lab Live campaign from April 1 until Earth Day on April 22 via its corporate Instagram channel.

For example, Mr. Sustainability checked in (and is not checking out) at Six Senses Douro Valley on day three to highlight only with balance can we thrive. On day eight, Six Senses Krabey Island reported how they actively supported Ream Primary School during the pandemic, particularly with clean water and handwashing stations.

Resorts have also produced know-how videos, with Six Senses Kocata Mansions showing how to make candles at home on day 12 and Jennifer Klar, Corporate Sustainability Manager at the home office, demonstrating DIY beeswax wraps on day 19.

Some great moments were caught on camera too, with Six Senses Ninh Van Bay showing how its population of critically endangered black-shanked douc langurs is thriving on the property on day 9 and Six Senses Con Dao sharing how specially trained hosts care for the eggs of the endangered Green Turtle before releasing the hatchlings on day 15. All days are available to watch via the Six Senses IGTV.

… and Lead to Prestigious Awards

The brand’s dedication to sustainability, conservation and ethical environmental practices has been recently recognized in Travel + Leisure’s Global Vision Awards. The honour highlights 30 individuals, companies and organizations that proactively protect communities and environments and inspire industry colleagues and travelers to do their part.

Six Senses Laamu’s Education and Community Outreach Manager Adam Tholhath has also been recognized on the global stage at last year’s Stelliers awards for inspiring the next generation of ocean stewards. Adam received his Stelliers Award for the Sustainable Hotelier of the year during the Virtual Award Ceremony.

 

Capella Bangkok launches Auriga Wellness ‘Sanctuary within a Sanctuary’

Capella Bangkok, an urban resort on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, has launched a new level of wellness with the opening of Auriga Wellness, a world-class spa spearheaded by the wellness specialists of GOCO Hospitality.

The spa immerses guests in a natural sanctuary of tranquillity, blending contemporary wellness techniques with ancient Asian wisdom. Nestled in the resort’s lush landscaped gardens, this 1,074- square metre facility features seven treatment rooms (including two spa suites), a thermal bathing area, a naturally lit tea lounge with an outdoor spa garden and a well-equipped fitness centre.

Drawing upon age-old therapies and medicinal herbs and spices—many growing organically in the local area — Auriga Wellness will provide a  unique spa experience.

The spa program, conceptualized by GOCO Hospitality, balances the heritage of the various communities along Charoenkrung Road with treatments embracing elements of traditional Chinese medicine, Indian healing rituals and time-honoured Thai techniques (such as Tok Sen, a hammer massage introduced to Bangkok by settlers from Chiang Mai).

To offer guests the best in modern healing beauty treatments, Auriga Wellness also worked with acclaimed luxury skincare brand ‘III SKIN’ to design a range of signature facial and body therapies, including dedicated treatments for gentlemen and the award-winning non-surgical lift facial.

An extensive menu of massages, body scrubs, wraps, facials and cleansing rituals will leave guests feeling fully restored, refreshed and rejuvenated. A series of active classes and lifestyle sessions, such as yoga, tai chi, personal training, TRX workouts and Muay Thai, will invigorate the mind and body.

“Capella Bangkok is set to become one of the most iconic wellness destinations in Bangkok thanks to its never-before-seen collection of locally inspired spa treatments,” says Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality. “Auriga Wellness will take guests on genuine journeys that explore the unique healing traditions inspired by the communities of Charoenkrung Road. This area is famed for its expertise in herbal medicines and ancient massage techniques, and I can’t wait to see these rituals come to life at Capella Bangkok.”

“Auriga Wellness is a ‘sanctuary within a sanctuary’ — a self-enclosed full-service spa in the heart of our riverside resort,” says John Blanco, general manager of Capella Bangkok. “Surrounded by tropical gardens, this is a cocoon where guests and local residents can escape from the outside world and unwind in a deedly peaceful ambience. GOCO Hospitality has created great  spa experiences for CaDella IO Sanya, Bali and the Maldives, and I am delighted to introduce their unique concept to Capella Bangkok,”

The sense of well-being at Capella Bangkok does not end at Auriga Wellness; spa-inspired services permeate throughout this innovative urban resort, from in-room wellness programmes and yoga mats to healthy dÏning options, a glistening riverside pool, and highly engaging experiences curated by a team of ‘Capella Culturists, who tap into the rich history of this storied neighbourhood.

Auriga Wellness is open daily from 1O a.m. to 10 p.m.. For more information and reservations, email or call 66 65 998 4648. To learn more about Capella Bangkok, visit www.capellahoteIs.com/banqkok or call 66 2 098 3888.

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas receives Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award for sustainability

TRAVEL + LEISURE GLOBAL VISION AWARDS spotlight 30 individuals, companies and organizations making meaningful strides in responsible travel and sustainable living.

In addition to thought leadership, these changemakers are also proactively protecting communities and environments and inspiring their industry colleagues and travelers to do their part.

Six Senses has been honoured as a group for its dedication to sustainability, conservation, and ethical environmental practices.

“We’re excited to be included in this distinguished group of changemakers,”said Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses “I’m one of those people who believe the events of the past year have made us more thoughtful about what we are doing and why, and how we impact our physical world and those around us.

“ I am fortunate to have found a professional path that is meaningful personally, and a company that is proactive and engaged in sustainability as an integral part of its DNA. I work with an extraordinary leadership team of experts who are passionate about what they do and who feel exactly the same way.”

Celebrating the community and environmental ethos that shines through each location.

Joining Neil in the leadership team is Vice President of Sustainability Jeff Smith, who oversees each property’s sustainability, environmental and social impacts.

“We want to go beyond protection and act as a regenerative business, adding value to local stakeholders and giving back more than we take,” says Jeff. “I’m happy to report that despite the pandemic, our sustainability initiatives are all on track, including Zero Waste, Plastic Free 2022, Earth Lab, Supplier Engagement, and localized projects supporting healthy ecosystems and communities.”

The brand’s small-scale developments also involve investing funds outside the hotel that support local communities and employing and sourcing locally.

“Funding the training and development for local farmers on regenerative agriculture, incubating those small businesses and buying back their produce, cooking that food in a plastic-free kitchen, and then any food waste going back to livestock or compost is the perfect circle,” adds Six Senses Corporate Food & Beverage Director Jonathan Heath, “a group and through the Eat With Six Senses platform, we will keep tightening this circle.”

Guest perspectives are shifting

The brand’s Wellness Pioneer Anna Bjurstam views sustainability and wellness as two sides of the same coin: “Even though our experiences are individual, what we all know is that wellness, connection, nature, sustainability, quality of life, love and collective consciousness have suddenly become more and more important. Now is the time for us to stay honest and engaged.”

Earth Lab Live

At Six Senses, the passion for sustainability is group wide, and the work happening on and off site at each property is communicated at the Earth Lab, from marine conservation to forestry or farming initiatives, harnessing renewable energy from solar or biomass, and bottling drinking water. Guests are offered free workshops to learn about this work and small tips to live more sustainably. The Earth Lab also communicates consumption data including water, energy and waste, and what the hotel is doing to manage those.

To celebrate these initiatives and educate audiences about the impacts in the lead up to Earth Day on April 22, Earth Lab Live will launch on April 1 and run daily until the big day. Everyone is invited to catch up with daily news direct from properties on langurs, soil conservation, marine initiatives and more via the Six Senses corporate Facebook and Instagram channels.

Spicing up your love life at Amari

AMARI HAS A COLLECTION OF smart and sexy tips that are great for your relationship, allowing you to socially distance yourself from the world and give 100% attention to your favourite person.

Start with an in-room dining experience by choosing a room, where a dinner for two is given a backdrop of breath-taking views.

In the morning, skip the buffet line and ask for breakfast to be served to your room. Plus, if you’re looking to do an Instagrammable breakfast spread shot, this is the perfect opportunity for all the IG partners out there to earn some brownie points.

Alternatively, ask for a picnic basket packed with sweet and savoury goodies for an outdoor lunch on the beach. Romantic, intimate, and another picture perfect moment to share as a “latergram”.

Dining Al Fresco… with an Elegant Twist: Set a date with your partner for something stylish if you find yourself missing those ‘special occasion’ outings. An afternoon tea date for two by the pool takes you away from the stuffy indoors, offering a fresh ocean breeze and warm sunshine if that’s your cup of tea.

If you prefer stargazing on the beach, you can set up a romantic sunset dining experience with spectacular ocean views, a private set menu meal that is only elevated by the dreamy atmosphere. Planning a proposal? This is the moment you’ve been waiting for all your life, hearing those two simple words: “I do”.

Massage Each Other’s Worries Away: Research shows that there are benefits to couples giving each other massages. It also strengthens emotional bonds in addition to providing physical relief from tension. Make time to give each other a relaxing massage, or opt for a couples massage together.

Ask your massage therapist for oil recommendations that’ll create the ultimate experience for you, whether you’re looking to unwind, to reinvigorate, or simply get lost in the rhythm together.

For the ultimate indulgence, book a couple’s massage at Amari Phuket Breeze Spa and get lost in the rhythm together, or dim the lights and set up a romantic bath with your other half at Amari Hua Hin’s One Bedroom Suites.

No Need to Wait – You Can Create Your Own Special Moments: Surprise your partner at home with personalized decorations, order in flowers or light up some candles to set the mood. If you’re planning a staycation, ask the hotel for a special set-up: Balloons and champagne are great ways to celebrate an anniversary, birthday – or the every day.

Learn (or Re-Learn) a New Hobby Together: Whether you’re looking to level up your culinary prowess by taking a cooking class together, or hoping to burn off your romantic dinner with a challenging new workout routine, plan something special and fun that the two of you can share.

Not sure what you’d like to try? Paddleboarding, painting classes, and photography are some of the activities you can start exploring today.

You can create romance in your lives, regardless of whether you are staying home or treating yourself to a private hotel stay. If you choose to travel, be responsible. Wear your face masks in public areas, observe social distancing and keep your hands clean. Also check that the hotel you visit is committed to offering a safe and healthy environment through enhanced measures, such as ONYX Clean, which is offered by all Amari hotels. Remember: Travel remains possible as long as you travel safely, mindfully and positively.

Visit Amari Hua Hin for a lovely afternoon tea set by the poolside, or enjoy a soothing couples massage at Amari Phuket’s Breeze Spa, where the open air plan means you can fully take in the lullaby of the ocean as your tensions melt away.

 Book One Bedroom Suite Pool View at Amari Hua Hin with “Just the Two of Us” package for a three-course candlelit dinner at Shoreline Beach Club, complimentary wine and romantic room setup; complimentary in-room breakfast and guaranteed late check-out, nightly rates starting at 5,499 THB.
