Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Maldives’ beautiful southern Laamu Atoll. Just an inter-island plane trip from Malé International Airport and a short boat ride brings you to a pristine palm-fringed paradise. The resort features 97 villa accommodations, most of them 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 often to themselves. There are also beginner’s waves for guests wanting to experience the joy of the sport. Dolphins swim along the seashell-dappled shores of Six Senses Laamu, just one and a half degrees north of the Equator. Guests snorkel in Laamu’s coral-rich house reef among Oriental Sweetlips, Parrotfish and even Green Turtles.
At several lounges and restaurants our 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.
