The 97 villas at Six Senses Laamu are strung out on wooden piers from the island, or nestled amongst the swaying palms along the shoreline, all of them offering a sense of privacy and seclusion, with amazing views of the ocean. Each villa has an upper deck on which you can enjoy private meals whilst gazing out at the panoramic view. The villas are all innovatively styled and crafted from responsible materials. There is a wide range of different types of villa, some over the water, some on the beach, some with private pools, others with two bedrooms.
As well as being able to enjoy meals on your villas upper deck, the island is also home to several different restaurants, all with a unique style and vibe. Leaf sits high above the organic garden, with several smaller tables and a large communal Chili Table. Zen and Longitude are both over the water restaurants, Zen offering a modern twist on a traditional Kaiseki menu, with some delicious fresh sushi and sashimi, and Longtitude is where each day begins with a plentiful breakfast choice and in the evenings an a la carte menu offering a range of different cuisines. For a more casual all day dining alternative there is Sip Sip, offering poolside dining by a dramatic sunken bar. The over the water Chill Lounge and Bar has several different levels to relax on and is a fabulous place to enjoy evening cocktails whilst watching the sun go down, and finally for those with a sweet tooth there is the Ice and Chocolate Studio, an al fresco ice cream parlous with countless flavours and a chocolate room. Should you manage to exhaust all these different options then there is also the option of a private picnic on a desert island or a barbecue dinner on the sandbank.
Six Senses Laamu is a family friendly resort, with the two bedroom villas providing ideal accommodation for parents with children. There is a kids club on the island called The Den and babysitting is on offer as well.
The island offers a wide range of activities for everyone and keen surfers will enjoy the Ying Yang, the most famous wave in the atoll which breaks just offshore. Island hopping to neighboring local islands is also an option, and a visit to the nearby Hithadoo island will provide an insight into the Maldivian way of life.
Remote and glorious, Six Senses Laamu is the only resort within the southern Laamu Atoll, surrounded by a beautiful coral house reef. Its reached by a short 35 minute flight from Malé, off which your butler will meet you and accompany you on the 15 minute boat ride to the resort.
The Six Senses Laamu is a wonderfully remote property, you’re unlikely to spot any other tourists out on the water but there is still plenty to explore nearby and even a chance to get a proper glimpse into the Maldivian way of life on nearby islands. The resort has a huge amount to offer for all ages so is incredibly popular with families and from April to October is a dream destination for anyone keen on surfing. Throughout the year the waters are plentiful with dolphins and from May to October it is turtle nesting and hatching season and the island’s Marine Biologist will be able to walk you through the fascinating process as you witness it for yourselves.
Six Senses are renowned for their consistent contributions to local sustainability projects and Six Senses Laamu is no exception. Daily tours of the island are given to those interested in learning about the resort's efforts.
Six Senses offers various different types of board basis. We think that is is one of the best value options because if you opt for their half-board package, whilst it is (like so many other resorts) restrictive in which restaurants you can dine in, they offer a $100 per person credit should you wish to have your dinner in one of the other restaurants on the island which usually more than covers a delicious three-course meal, excluding alcohol.
From Malé International Airport it is a 35 minute domestic flight to Kadhdhoo, followed by a transfer to a Six Senses speedboat for the 15 boat journey to Six Senses Laamu.
