Six Senses Hideaway Hua Hin, Thailand.
If a hotel or resort doesn’t say much or anything at all about its environmental and eco-practices on its home page (hey, a simple link is enough), it’s hard to take them seriously. Communicating green to guests and prospective guests is important, so in some ways if a hotel isn’t talking about it, they might as well not be doing it. This communication seems more fraught with difficulty the more luxurious a hotel or resort is, perhaps because asking guests to re-use towels seems crazy when charging them $400 to $1,000 a night. Perhaps that is why Six Senses, located 200 kilometers southwest of Bangkok, wrote its own pamphlet on its green practices. Some efforts are slightly incomprehensible–like switching from 60 to 20 watt bulbs (why not CFLs?), and a carbon offset program (others are already doing it better). Others are much more in keeping with the environment: a permaculture organic vegetable garden and an orchard; a high-tech hydroponic garden; a hut for growing mushrooms; and, an electrically-propelled long boat.

Here they are: SCUPPIES!

Scuppies are ‘socially upwardly mobile persons’, wich means: young adults who are philanthropic, eat organic and try to live as green as possible. Some people say that they’re the ‘marriage’ between hippies and yuppies lifestyle – they pursuit peace and happiness (like the hippies) but not forgetting the cash (like yuppies). They love to consume, but in a concious manner.
