The Reasons To Go
- Being the only resort in the Laamu Atoll, exclusive and pristine, untouched natural beauty is abundant around the resort. Whether snorkeling or diving on one of the atoll's diverse coral reefs, surfing one of the local, uncrowded breaks, or island hopping between uninhabited, palm-fringed sandbanks, here you can be rest assured that privacy and serenity are restored
- Six Senses Laamu produces as much as possible onsite in order to reduce emissions from long-distance transport, they also work towards zero-waste operations by recycling materials into new, useful products.
- The resort Sustainability Manager works with all departments on how the team can be more efficient, less wasteful, and in the long run achieve greater cost savings. Join the sustainability team at 10:30 am Sunday to Friday for a Back of House tour to learn more about the sustainability initiatives.

The Nitty Gritty
Six Senses Laamu has 97 spacious thatched villas, all carefully designed to harmonize with the outstanding natural beauty of the island. They offer privacy, cosiness and every comfort. True to the Six Senses’ philosophy of being in harmony with the environment, the villas are crafted from local and sustainable materials. Both water and on-land villas are available with the ability to host from 2 up to 6 guests
The resort is located in a remote corner of a southern atoll of Laamu in the Maldives, just 5 degrees north of the equator.
- Getting there:
To reach this aqua utopia, take a 35-minute inter-island plane trip from the Maldives International Airport of Malé, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride. The resort will be able to handle all your inter-island flights and will also meet you at Malé to point you in the right direction.
- What to pack:
Please try not to bring any single-use plastic to the island and refrain from wrapping your luggage. The team ask that any duty free bags, plastic bottles, batteries, or other waste you produce during your stay is taken home with you where you can properly recycle them. The resort practices bare foot luxury, so feel free to leave your fancy shoes at home!

- Stainless steel reusable water bottles
- Cloth or canvas reusable bags
- Snorkeling equipment (mask, snorkel, fins, goggles)
