‘Climate change is the single most important threat to our society and planet’, explains David Arraya, General Manager of Six Senses Ibiza, and the company is doing all it can to reduce its carbon footprint across all properties. In this film, we hear stories from two resorts and learn all about the brand’s sustainability journey. For example, we hear about the one million plastic bottles saved a year in their quest to eliminate all single-use plastics by the end of 2022. And we see how renewable energy sources are being used to supply 10% of the property’s energy.

A ground-breaking blueprint in the exquisite coastal mountains of Dominica. A vision successfully implemented by two people pioneering what could be done. Through research and passion, they sensitively built a high-end resort; 14 hotel suites and six pools. Living truly off-grid without compromise using only sun, wind and rain. Proving a marriage of technology and nature, initiating an ongoing pursuit of sustainability to help others build resilience to climate change.
Traveling in Australia on a budget means making use of the expansive network of YHA hostels. But it’s not just about saving money; travelers also choose to stay with YHA because of their sense of community and, increasingly, their sustainable eco-tourism credentials.
We take a look behind the scenes at two of YHA’s most contrasting sites; the purpose-built sustainable building in The Rocks, where travelers can stay in the heart of Sydney Harbour for a fraction of the cost of the 5-star mega hotels that surround it, and a remote location in Pittwater (just an hour north of Sydney) that is only accessible by boat and where sustainable living is a necessary fact of daily life.
