“Everything was environmentally friendly. It was really a very good experience. The chef was really interested in making this experience wonderful for us. We love the wine tasting experience with Sabu.” R&V Shah
Six Senses Yao Noi is built on to the island of Yao Noi to create a new and exciting destination itself on this peaceful and charming local Muslim island. The island is between Phuket and Krabi and it delivers the local and very traditional Thai experience versus the very hectic experience you will find in Phuket or Krabi.
The resort was built on a rubber plantation. Much of the rubber trees were kept to create shade from the sun as well as keeping soil from eroding. In addition, the landscape and garden has been improved with the philosophy of re-generating the tropical flora as it would have been, if the area was left untouched. Local plants and fruit trees have been planted to attract wild life and particularly birds such as the Hornbill. Local building techniques have been adapted using local materials that are in harmony with the environment.
The emphasis is on the guests to help them to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them. All villas are free standing and the natural vegetation and lush green landscaping around them provides utmost privacy between the elevated villas. The guests enjoy a jaw dropping view of the stunning limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay.

Six Senses Yao Noi is actively engaged in efforts to monitor the carbon footprint of the employees and guests to reduce negative impacts on climate change.
Six Senses is committed in developing a sustainable environment and monitor the performance and sustainable activities against the target and goals set by Six Senses Benchmarks, which will be adjusted, amended and acted upon wherever appropriate. Six Senses improves the carbon footprint through improving overall energy usage, consumption and operating efficiently with the resources.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
The resort talks with its suppliers to reduce packaging when delivering supplies. The printing paper is ecolabeled or recycled and Six Senses reuses the reverse side of printed paper for notes.
All of the cleaning products used are non-toxic. Instead of black plastic, bins that can be washed or linen bags are used.
The lighting is turned automatically on at dawn step-by-step reducing energy consumption. Six Senses installed a main and sub-feed metering system to control energy usage.
The resort minimizes energy use associated with water distribution around the resort by pumping the water up to the top of the hill and distribute it from there by gravity. All villa designs take advantage of passive cooling and the large overhanging roofs shades the windows, reducing the need for air-conditioning.
Quantum heat recovery
Hot water is heated by use of Quantum recovery. The water is heated by recovering heat from the air, reducing energy consumption.
Water supply through own reservoir
The resort has its own water rain water harvesting reservoir as well as several deep wells. All the water guests are using (shower, washing and flushing the toilet) comes from those reservoirs, making the resort self-sufficient.
Water Conservation & Recycling
Six Senses produces their own drinking water through reverse osmosis and use re-useable glass water bottles. All imported waters are banned from the resort, which keeps waste down and reduces carbon emission associated with transportation of bottled water.
The water is coming from deep wells and rain-water collecting ponds. After the purification and mineralization the water is bottled into re-usable glass water bottles.
Water saving showerheads are installed. All the wastewater is collected, goes through septic tanks and is then treated in on-site closed wastewater treatment plants. The water goes through a treatment process, which use natural bacteria and the grey water will be used in future for irrigation.
