Six Senses Green Initiatives
- Environment Stewardship
- Sourcing Locally
The main concern at the start of the project was how to deal with the site’s pristine and unique natural environment without destroying the essence of the landscape while creating a real identity for the resort.
This implied that ecological and sustainability issues were foremost in the design inception and guided the architectural works to ensure that wasteful energy consumption was avoided and disturbances to the natural environment were minimal—ultimately exceeded the standards of Green Globe 21 certification.
With a plot density of approximately 10 percent, the Six Senses Con Dao is a definitively low-density development, offering a greater environmental balance.
This has helped preserve the quality of the local setting, seamlessly integrating the property into its natural surroundings.
Additionally, the extensive landscaping on Vietnam’s coast primarily uses flora that is indigenous to the destination, helping to meld the property into the natural environment.
In order to provide an alternative to air-conditioning as the sole means of cooling, the villas and main buildings are designed to enhance natural ventilation, aided by ceiling fans and the cool sea breeze.
Keeping in line with luxury, the bedrooms are the only rooms in the hotel and residential villas that are air-conditioned
The property pumps water from an underground well, which is treated at an onsite water treatment plant.
Sewage and effluents are also treated at the onsite treatment plant, allowing for the reuse of grey water for landscaping purposes.
The overall low-density design and site coverage also guarantees that water permeates through the ground in the landscaped areas and paths.
The property’s lighting system uses low-consumption LED lights for all outdoor areas
During the design phase, the architects and developers made a point to select locally sourced construction materials and finishes, as well as encouraged local tradesmen to participate in the project (ultimately, all contractors were local Vietnamese).
As a Green Globe 21 certified property, it is ensured that the building materials were sourced responsibly.
In particular, for the two main building material—timber and granite— Six Senses sourced Indochinese hardwood from sustainably managed forests and granite found locally in Con Dao.
