Yes, We are talking about Fiji, where the luxury hotel chain Six Senses opened its first resort in the South Pacific in mid-April. Located in a secluded bay, Malolo, an island belonging to the Mamanuca Islands, in the archipelago of Fiji, it stands out not only for its 650-meter-long golden sand beach, nor for its villas with swimming pools, nor for its two exclusive ports for docking the guests’ yachts, but for their largest off-grid solar installations in the southern hemisphere, and run on Tesla battery packs. A clear commitment to the much-needed sustainability of our planet and the low environmental impact.
In addition, Fiji’s Six Senses collects rainwater, stores it in septic tanks and, at the same time, has its own reverse osmosis plant and water refinery to supply drinking water to customers without using plastic water bottles. And, as for food, it has its own organic fruit and vegetable garden to support the goal of self-sustaining food.
In Six Senses they continue to celebrate that they are the last to arrive in Fiji Islands and the first ones to attract eco-luxury traveling guests, aware of the maximum reduction of the environmental footprint and in favor of the health of the planet.
