Lavish Luxury at Six Senses Laamu

Laamu is among the largest atolls in the Maldives, and the turquoise crystal-clear water offers excellent visibility and is one of the most unspoiled diving  areas in the county.

Six Senses Laamu is a playful paradise that elevates castaway modern ambience. The rustic-luxe villas are constructed of sustainable materials, and a sense fun and ingenuity pervades the design — from the novelty of watching fish through a transparent bathtub positioned upon a floor window, to the exhilaration from a tower-like sundeck on top of a water villa.

While you can choose between beach villas or overwater villas, it’s the latter that really shines. And while it may be difficult to believe that some Maldives lagoons can be superior to others, the one surrounding Six Senses Laamu is particularly magnificent. Due to its shallow depth, lack of seagrass or rocks, and expansive size, the lagoon is an intense, iridescent shade of turquoise. This swath of azure wraps all the way around the island and stretches far off into the distance. These qualities can’t be found in every lagoon and together they make for a breathtaking spectacle.

Look beyond the lagoon and you’ll notice the Six Senses Laamu resort's pioneering design features as well as its environmental ethos. All of the buildings have been designed to complement and accentuate the stunning natural surroundings.To lower its impact on the local environment, Six Senses Laamu employs its own reusable glass water bottles, shuns single-use plastic and aims to be entirely plastic-free by 2022. 

There is a “no shoes, no news” policy that encourages you to abandon your footwear on arrival to Six Senses Laamu and disconnect from the rest of the world. Your in-villa TVs screens are discreetly hidden behind textiles or in trunks. And you will enjoy your days in peace while rejuvenating with nature.

Each day at Six Senses Laamu begins with a lavish champagne breakfast buffet in a two-story coconut thatch pavilion named Longitude, built over the lagoon and featuring glass panels in the floor. Select champagne or prosecco to accompany an infinite feast of fresh fruits, housemade pastries, eggs, meats, cheeses and curries.

Wander into the Ice and Chocolate Studio and inhale the tempting sugary scent of handmade chocolates and ice cream. The chef makes them in house — try the salted caramel chocolates.

The exciting design in Six Senses Laamu blends rustic tropical touches with a splash of colonial-era chic — for example, vintage-looking luggage trunks disguise the TVs in some of the rooms. Plus, there’s a dash of whimsy, such as the transparent bathtubs on the glass floors of the water villas, and the multiple hammocks over the lagoon
