Soneva Kiri by Six Senses, an eco-resort located in Thailand, is one of the best examples of sustainable tourism businesses. The hotel is constructed with locally sourced wood and bamboo with thatched roofs and canvas canopies which blend into the landscape. Bamboo is very sustainable for building, effectively bamboo is the fastest growing plant (which have been found to grow at up to 91 cm per day 😉 ).
The hotel produces all required drinking water on site which has reduced carbon emissions and avoided 900,000 plastic bottles, at the same time, it also recycles over 80 percent of its waste. Soneva has raised around USD 5.7 million towards environmental projects to mitigate CO2, far exceeding Soneva’s carbon footprint, including guests’ flights.
It offers a combination of luxury, an integral environmental approach, authentic Thai experiences, a SLOW LIFE style (Sustainable-Local-Organic-Wellness Learning-Inspiring-Fun-Experiences), the mouth-watering organic fruits and vegetables freshly picked from the garden.
Choosing a green hotel while traveling can minimize our environmental impact on earth!
