Six Senses Laamu
This sophisticated hotel in the remote Laamu Atol will have you fully immersed in the castaway mindset before you can say ‘cocktail’. Shoes are confiscated on arrival to help you settle into island life, and with a choice of lagoon or ocean view villas, you’ll never want to leave.
The sustainably designed villas range from beach bungalows nestled in the jungle to overwater villas with a pool deck and sunken glass bathtub. By day you can explore uninhabited islands, tuck into picnics on deserted sandbanks and snorkel with colourful fish at the house reef. Or if you prefer, enjoy a sand massage in the spa and walk barefoot along the pristine beaches. When night falls it’s time for the jungle cinema, sunset dhoni cruises and indulgent dining in the several world-class restaurants.
Conservation and Sustainability
Six Senses Laamu has partnered with the Blue Marine Foundation in a commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and is aiming to be fully self-sufficient with zero waste in the near future. Guests can enjoy a back-of-house tour at the Earth Lab to discover how it all works in practice. The resort is also heavily involved in the conservation of the island’s coral reefs and areas of seagrass, and it monitors sea turtles so that effective protection can be maintained.
