Six Senses Hideaway

In addition to using energy-efficient light bulbs and buying carbon offsets, this gorgeous property located 100 miles southwest of Bangkok has a permaculture organic vegetable garden, an orchard and a hut for growing mushrooms. The property recycles, composts and even uses electric boats. Not only is the Six Senses Hideaway environmentally responsible, but it’s also socially responsible. It employs Thai people, and almost all of its products, furnishings and decorations are made from natural materials by locals.
