Six Senses Laamu
Just an inter-island plane trip from Malé International Airport and a short boat ride brings you to the pristine palm-fringed paradise of Laamu. The resort features 97 villa accommodations, with most being set over the lagoon’s turquoise waters and some on the island, and all constructed of sustainably sourced materials.
Yin Yang, the Maldives’ most famous surfing wave breaks just offshore and is an impressive attraction for surfers who have it virtually to themselves. There are also beginner’s waves for guests wanting to experience the exhilaration of the sport. Dolphins swim along the seashell-dappled shores of Six Senses Laamu, just five degrees north of the Equator. Guests snorkel in Laamu’s coral-rich house reef among Oriental Sweetlips, Parrotfish and even Green Turtles. The waters have so many activities to offer for people of every age.
Enjoy Laamu’s several lounges and restaurants where the chefs from East and West prepare mouth-watering dishes, many created from produce grown in the island’s organic gardens. 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 enchanting tropical vistas, from inspiring equatorial sunrises above the translucent lagoon waters to romantic rose-coloured 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 pavilions plus one Ayurveda treatment pavilion and 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 resort guests lifestyle consultations and specialized holistic treatments.
