Description of Halal friendly Thailand holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetBy engaging with our tour, here are how your tourism spend helps the local environment;
Farm to Table : In ensuring that the resort is self-sustainable, they support local products. Not only does it reduce wastage, it also encourages job-creation. In addition, they have various gardens and farms to provide the freshest produce for their kitchen use.
Water Conservation : Water consumption is a significant consideration on Yao Noi Island despite a high annual rainfall. Furthermore, wastewater is a concern in that it may cause pollution particularly to the marine life. Six Senses Yao Noi takes several measures to tackle these challenges.
Waste Reduction : Six Senses Yao Noi actively looks for ways to reduce the waste generated and its disposal. Suppliers are instructed to reduce packaging when delivering supplies. Printed paper is eco-labeled or recycled and re-used on the reverse side for notes, thus reducing the number of trees needed to be harvested. Use of black plastic is minimized so as to reduce waste; instead, bins that can be washed or linen bags are used. Rechargeable batteries are also used to reduce toxic waste.
Hornbill Conservation : The Oriental Pied Hornbills are the most iconic wildlife on the island. They are medium-sized and highly recognisable by their large canopy dwelling. As such, they are highly protected and deemed rare by the locals. As such, the resort collaborate with the Hornbill Association in identifying spots within the resort that are suitable for them to nest.
PeopleThe island of Koh Yao Noi is home to a mainly Muslim population, and as you jump on a moped to follow the only road on the island, you’ll see girls in hijab heading home from school, boys playing football with tatty balls and their parents ploughing the fields. The warmth of the people, with a simple way of life, brings a sense of contentment to whatever little they have. Partnering with the Six Senses Yao Noi, we embark on a series of projects through the our Foundation.
* Providing support to local schools to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for the children.
* The Foundation helps schools with financial support for school meals as well as supporting with new computer equipment to ensure children are engaged in the rapidly developing digital world.
* Encouraging development through sport and providing new equipment
* Supporting orphaned children to develop their education through their early school life.
