Wealth from waste in Southern Thailand

by posted in NEWS

Have you ever wondered what happens to the excess timber that results from resort maintenance? In true Six Senses style, Six Senses Yao Noi promises, “waste not, want not” with the addition of a timber yard.

Sustainability and environmental consciousness remain at the heart of every Six Senses resort, down to the bare timbers! Once our specialists at Six Senses Yao Noi have removed the timber from the villas, it is transported to the timber yard. There it is sorted into different grades by hosts, depending on the quality and status of the wood. The timber will then be sent to the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) workshop to be repurposed into furniture, made into charcoal for energy or sent to the wood chipper to be turned into compost.

The waste timber has since allowed Six Senses Yao Noi to build a new educational center, the Hornbill Club, which will be providing a host of activities and experiences for our younger guests in the coming months.
