Six Senses Vana Celebrates World Environment Day with Launch of Earth Lab

By Nishang Narayan

Published on June 6, 2024

As World Environment Day approaches, Six Senses Vana, a pioneer in sustainable hospitality, unveils its latest initiative, Earth Lab. This new venture underscores the retreat's deep commitment to environmental stewardship and aligns with this year's global theme focusing on land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience.

Earth Lab is a testament to Six Senses Vana's foundational philosophy that nature is integral to our existence, not just an external element. This commitment is evidenced by the retreat's attainment of LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in 2015, a first for the Indian hospitality industry. The lab serves as a dynamic hub for sustainability efforts, displaying the retreat’s energy consumption and waste management statistics prominently, educating guests on the importance of environmental conservation.


Located in the serene surroundings of Six Senses Vana, Earth Lab offers a range of engaging activities aimed at enhancing guests' connection to the environment. These include Seed Bomb Making workshops, where guests can create seed-laden clay balls to aid in reforestation efforts, and Workout while Watering sessions that combine physical fitness with the watering of the retreat's extensive gardens. Additionally, the Bamboo Basket & Craft Making Workshop teaches the sustainable use of bamboo, emphasising its environmental benefits.

The retreat also features several interactive displays such as Birds of Vana and Trees of Vana, which educate guests on the local flora and fauna, further enriching their stay. The Sustainable Practices Wall provides insights into the retreat’s numerous green initiatives, from responsible sourcing and eco-friendly construction methods to advanced waste management techniques.

Six Senses Vana’s commitment to sustainability extends to its architectural choices, featuring biophilic design elements like living walls and natural lighting, which reduce energy consumption and enhance guest health. The use of low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints and FSC-certified wood furniture in guest rooms and common areas highlights the retreat’s commitment to indoor environmental quality and responsible forestry.

Further solidifying its environmental initiatives, Six Senses Vana operates an in-house water bottling plant, significantly cutting down on plastic usage, and a high-efficiency sewage treatment facility that recycles greywater. Additionally, the retreat’s mushroom hut and organic gardens allow for a farm-to-table dining experience that supports local farmers and reduces food miles.

With the launch of Earth Lab, Six Senses Vana not only celebrates World Environment Day but also reinforces its role as a leader in sustainable tourism, providing guests with a transformative experience that respects and nurtures the natural world. This initiative is a step forward in Six Senses Vana's journey towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious hospitality industry.
