Feeding the goats at Six Senses Yao Noi.
A luxury holiday resort in southern Thailand has launched an ‘eco warrior’ programme for kids.
Six Senses Yao Noi reopened in July and to celebrate has created a fun children’s activity programme based around its environmental practices.
Kids can help collect fresh eggs from the resident chickens and ducks, feed the goats and sow seeds.
There will also be cooking classes and ‘lessons’ in marine ecology down on the beach.
Kids will be shown how to transform trash into treasure through a number of Do-It-Yourself projects, including building 'hornbill villas' for the local feathered population from recycled timber.
Further workshops include transforming candle remnants into new ones, glass bottles into pots and food waste into compost.
The fun continues with a maze in the mangroves, wildlife spotting (with the chance to meet Jason, the resident monitor lizard) and a picnic overlooking the limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay.
And of course, while the kids are busy, the parents can relax.

“Having their children engaged allows parents to enjoy some precious ‘me or us time’ too, dipping in the pool, embarking on a wellness journey at the spa, enjoying a leisurely brunch or reading a few pages of a book uninterrupted,” points out Graham Grant, general manager of Six Senses Yao Noi. As the adage goes, there is nobody so full of hope as a parent who brings a book on holiday.
The Junior Eco Warrior Program features a variety of activities from 10am to 1pm daily. It’s suitable for children aged four to 12 years and is free for all guests staying at the resort.
