Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu Atoll, deep in the Indian Ocean. A scenic inter-island plane trip from Mal and a short boat ride bring you to a palm-fringed paradise island with 97 stylishly sustainable Maldivian villas set over the turquoise waters and in the lush tropical vegetation facing the lagoon. Yin Yang, the Maldive most famous surfing wave, breaks just offshore. There are nearby beginner waves and phenomenal snorkeling is available in the house reef where it is very common to see oriental sweetlips, parrotfish and even green turtles as you make you way along it. The resort chefs prepare dishes created from produce grown in the island organic gardens, enhanced by tropical vistas. The Six Senses Spa highly skilled therapists and visiting practitioners provide a comprehensive range of award-winning signature treatments, rejuvenation and wellness specialties.
