And Do Good: Six Senses locations around the world are focused on giving back to their community and environment. Six Senses Botanique, along with their other locations, continued to put emphasis on this focus in 2020 despite it being a hard year for the travel industry.
In 2020, more than 17,000 local community members, hosts and their families supported positive impact events, with an extra 4,317 guests helping out. In fact, hosts dedicated around 2,000 hours to volunteering in their local communities. Passing the legacy on to younger generations, 4,195 local people gained access to education and skills training. Installing water filters meant 111,385 people received clean drinking water and sanitation. A further 536,240 people benefited from improved access to healthcare programs and provision of medical equipment.
