The splendid seclusion of a palm-fringed island paradise with endless vistas across sparkling Indian Ocean waters is the overwhelmingly beautiful setting for Six Senses Laamu.

It is a place with inspiring equatorial sunrises above the translucent lagoon and romantic sunsets that dissolve into the evening sea. To reach this aqua utopia, where dolphins swim along the sandy shoreline, it is just a 35-minute inter-island plane trip from the Maldives International Airport of Malé, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride.

Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the archipelago’s southern Laamu Atoll. The 97 award winning accommodations are a combination of on-land and over-water villas constructed of sustainable materials. Weathered timber jetties lead to the overwater havens secluded by high wooden enclosures. Lush forest surrounds the stylish beach villas in utmost privacy.They all offer the ultimate island lifestyle, with one or two bedrooms, private leisure and dining decks, and many well thought out features for guest comfort.

Nestled into the beachfront’s pristine vegetation, the Six Senses Spa offers four uniquelydesigned couple treatment nests, three secluded couple treatment champas, plus a champa for ayurveda and one for Thai massage.

Highly skilled Six Senses Spa therapists use a synergy of natural products to provide a comprehensive range of signature treatments plus rejuvenation and wellness specialties of the region. Memorable and unique Maldivian features are the Kurumbaa Kaashi Coconut Oil Massage, the Laamu Mineral Poultice Scrub and the Laamu Bliss Wrap. Visiting practitioners offer lifestyle consultations and specialized holistic treatments.

Sea breezes drift among the rustic woods under high palm-thatched roofs at Laamu’s diningvenues, where chefs from East and West prepare appetizing dishes, many of which are created using produce grown on the island. LEAF is a wonderful dining experience perched above the organic garden, while Zen offers Japanese style dining in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. International cuisine is featured at the two-level overwater Longitude alongside the one-of-a kind glass wine cellar. Sip Sip at poolside offers a casual dining alternative with beach classics throughout the day whereas Chill Bar, open all day and night, features an authentic Vietnamese menu for lunch and a varied international menu for lunch and dinner.

Amazing and memorable excursion experiences are on offer all year round. In addition to dolphin watching, diving choices are virtually endless with frequent sightings of reef sharks, manta rays, turtles and abundant colorful fish. Surfing classes are offered for beginners and the famous Yin Yang surf break is only a few minutes away for the more experienced surfers. Excursions include island-hopping, sandbank barbecues, private picnics on a deserted island and visiting the nearby island, Hithadhoo.

As a children-friendly resort, The Den is a professionally managed youngsters club with a wide range of activities and games around the resort.

The resort demonstrates operational sustainability through the practice of local sensitivity and support of local communities, which is core to the ethos of our brand. Six Senses Laamu engages the talent of local Maldivians, many of who are from the vicinity of the resort. Additionally, fresh produce such as local fish, fruit and vegetables, and services (e.g. for construction or repair work) are from the surrounding area, thereby benefiting the local economy and communities.

Throughout the year various contributions are made to local sustainability projects. These activities utilize the resort’s human and financial resources and are primarily, though not exclusively, funded through Six Senses Laamu Sustainability Fund. Six Senses Laamu’ s sustainability Fund collects 0.5 percent of revenues, which are exclusively used for the support of local social and/or environmental projects and initiatives in the Maldives.
