Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu Atoll, deep in the Indian Ocean. Just an inter-island plane trip from Malé International Airport and a short boat ride brings you to a place where dolphins swim. The resort is a combination of on-land and over-water villas constructed of sustainable materials and set around the palm-fringed paradise.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Beautifully remote, yet easily accessible by plane and boat from Malé, Six Senses Laamu is set in a lagoon where dolphins swim along the sandy shoreline. With villas set over-water and on the palm-fringed island, there are all the creature comforts, plus a choice of overwater lounges and restaurants and amazing excursion experiences. Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu Atoll, deep in the Indian Ocean. The resort is a combination of on-land and over-water villas constructed of sustainable materials and set around the palm-fringed paradise.

Sea breezes drift among the rustic woods under high palm-thatched roofs at Laamu’s six bars and restaurants, most set over water. Edible memories at each venue are enhanced by enchanting tropical vistas, from inspiring equatorial sunrises above the translucent turquoise lagoon waters to romantic rose-coloured sunsets that dissolve into the evening sea.

Set right on the beach, Six Senses Spa offers four uniquely designed couple's treatment nests, four secluded couple's treatment pavilions plus one Ayurvedic treatment pavilion, all within the island’s natural vegetation. Highly skilled therapists use a variety of natural products to provide a comprehensive range of award-winning signature treatments, and rejuvenation and wellness specialties of the region. Some of the best visiting practitioners offer guests personal consultations and holistic therapies to achieve a better state of mind and more fulfilling life experiences.

Dolphins swim along the seashell dappled shores of Six Senses Laamu, the only resort in Laamu Atoll and just five degrees north of the Equator. Guest snorkel in Laamu’s coral rich house reef among Oriental Sweetlips, parrotfish and even green turtles. Yin Yang, the Maldives’ most famous surfing wave that breaks just offshore is an impressive attraction. The waters have so much to offer for fun activities.

Six Senses Laamu is a children-friendly resort. On site we have a our children's club called, The Den, which is a professionally managed children's club with a wide range of activities and games. Babysitting services are on request. Around the resort and in the villa: Children toys, baby chairs at restaurant, baby cots, family activities, hammocks. With sunshine and sand, children will enjoy a great outing. They have a choice of outdoor and indoor games. If they are able to swim well, and with the permission of the parents, they can go snorkeling to see the wide variety of sea creatures in our house reef.

Review:   Overall, the property really speaks of itself and representing the six senses brand. Being a hospitality expert in the hotel industry, I was extremely eager to experience a six senses property and how the brand delivers its value and uniqueness. And I must say it is truly exceptional and what I have experienced really sticks true to the brand. I will not rate this property as a perfect score as there are still some minor improvements to be done. Nonetheless, it is an unforgettable experience and the brand deserves to be highlighted among the other premium brands in the word. It does indeed worth the money and I will continue to consider six senses brand in my next important occasion to stay.

Review:   We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Laamu and feel it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The setting, day-to-day management, F&B, staff, diver school, accommodation etc were all first rate. We used the spa, dive school, resort doctor, all restaurants bar Sip Sip and were delighted with our experiences at all of them. We don't have any experience of other resorts in the Maldives but we really liked the focus on sustainability, particularly with the marine biology link. The barefoot luxury angle was also superb but we weren't quite sure whether that was really the case before we arrived so we both took 3-4 pairs of shoes with us.

Review:   We went for our first vacation the two of us since our daughter was born in 2016. We wanted to take our time (slow life) and enjoy every single day balancing between water activities (Surf & Diving), wellness (spa), nap and great meal experiences. Guess what... it's an homerun. As soon as we landed at Male, we had nothing else than enjoy to do :). The only thing we could regret about the trip is the weather, which unfortunately can not be controlled by the resort. We had a beach villa, quiet. It was perfect. Everything was great! I personally went surfing 4 times and each time we were up to 4 people max on the spot (Yin Yang), awesome! We even had the right to a dolphin dance back to resort once. The reef is also very well supplied with fish, it's superb. As you will have understood, go with your eyes closed. I can't wait to go again... Honestly

Review:   A DREAM HONEYMOON Where do I even begin with this beautiful resort?! Coming from NYC.. three planes and a boat later.. we found heaven on earth. From the moment we arrived, being greeted by our GEM Najah, we knew we were in for a special treat. Continuing the high of the wedding of our dreams, came the honeymoon of our dreams! Pictures, although beautiful, could never do this place justice as you truly need to live it. It was like Christmas morning every day. Waking up to catch the sunrise and ordering breakfast to enjoy on our hut’s deck was truly an experience we will cherish forever. We were so happy we booked the Laamu over water villa with pool as we looked forward to taking a dip in the morning, riding around the island and finding our way back in the pool every afternoon! Each experience was truly amazing (Surf & Turf beach BBQ, private sandbank cocktails for two, sunset dolphin cruise, sunken table experience & the most relaxing spa in the world!) We also dined at each restaurant which was a treat to try something new and exciting each day. We loved the feeling of cruising the island (shoeless) on our bikes and chasing ‘no-rush hour’ happy hours. It was the honeymoon of our dreams and the one vacation of our life we truly were sad to leave!! We cannot wait to recommend Six Senses Laamu to everyone that we know and come back on day to relive the magic!

Review:   Excellent stay in all aspects. Not much to improve as all was almost perfect. Only a suggestion on F&B service as there was some controversy on our full board option and the way of managing the situation was not perfect. But by far all the experience deserves a 5 stars. One of the best resorts I've ever been. I am sure I will come back to rest, enjoy and refill my energy level again!
