It didn’t just happen overnight. From setting the first bars of wood on the jetty of Olhuveli island to finally announcing an opening date, the property of Six Senses Laamu worked on curating outstanding experiences to offer in the remote, and virtually unchartered atoll of Laamu in the Maldives.
Located a mere half-hour domestic flight and a quick boat-hop away from the main gateway to Maldives, Six Senses Laamu sits deep in the southern heart of the archipelago. 97 chic and rustic villas scattered across the beach and over the transparent azure lagoon offer privacy, coziness and comfort. Wellness heavily influences an ambiance of natural harmony that reflects in every offering on the island. Be it putting you down for a peaceful nap or teasing your tastebuds on an epicurean journey around the world, the resort team has perfected the formulae for luxurious moments of bliss.
For the past decade, the resort has been hosting guests from all corners of the globe and showing them incredible experiences fused with their ethos of sustainability at heart. Not only are the experiences memorable, but they have been meaningfully involving hosts, guests, the local community and the environment in each of them. The resort takes small steps which reward immensely such as protecting millions of acres of seagrass patches, advocating a plastic-free lifestyle and simply creating opportunities to live alongside locals and learn from them.
It takes a great team of hosts to operate a resort at large, numerous stakeholders tirelessly supporting the everyday functions and many, many guests who fall in love all over again every time they step foot on the sandy beaches on the island. Here is to a decade of Six Senses Laamu! May we eat all the ice-cream we can, ‘fly’ with as many Mantas and Turtles, continue surfing the Ying Yang and build connections that will last for a long time to come.
