Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Maldives’ beautiful Laamu Atoll, deep in the Indian Ocean. Just an inter-island flight south from Malé International Airport and a short speedboat ride brings you to a place of unique, untouched and simple beauty. 97 water and beachfront villas are constructed of sustainable materials and spread around the palm-fringed island paradise.
Dolphins swim along the seashell-dappled shores of Six Senses Laamu, just one and a half degrees north of the Equator. Guests are guided by marine biologists on snorkels on the coral-rich house reef among Oriental Sweetlips, Parrotfish and even Green Turtles. The resort is home to a renowned dive center and is the base of the Maldives Underwater Initiative, one of the largest marine biology teams in the nation. These teams work with the resorts sustainability and permaculture teams to ensure the ecosystems of Laamu are conserved for generations to come. During school holidays the team expands to take in any budding conservationist through the Junior Marine Biology program.
Yin Yang, the Maldives’ most famous surfing wave breaks just offshore and is an impressive attraction for surfers who have it often to themselves. There are also beginner’s waves for guests wanting to experience the joy of the sport. The Tropicsurf team provides year-round guiding and a broad program of instructional service from the resort.
At several lounges and restaurants chefs from East and West prepare delicious dishes, many created from produce grown in the island's organic gardens. The sea breezes drift among the rustic woods under high palm-thatched roofs, most set over water. Memorable menus offered at each venue are enhanced by tropical vistas, from inspiring equatorial sunrises above the lagoon waters to romantic sunsets that dissolve into the evening sea.
Set on the beach, the Six Senses Spa offers four uniquely designed couple treatment nests, four secluded couple treatment champas plus one Ayurvedic treatment and one “Thai massage champa”, all within the island’s natural vegetation. Highly skilled Six Senses Spa therapists use natural products to provide a comprehensive range of award-winning signature treatments plus rejuvenation and wellness specialties of the region. Visiting practitioners offer our guests lifestyle consultations and specialized holistic treatments.
