Six Senses Laamu, Maldives

Barefoot Luxury Surf Experience


Originated from the concept of a Spa and relaxation the Six Senses Laamu is all about to reconnect with yourself, others and the world around you.

The luxury resort stands out with a great eco friendly atmosphere well integrating creative use of wood and glass construction. This 5 * resort has been designed to blend in with the island natural beauty.

The resort is a combination of on-land and over-water villas with outstanding natural beauty, powder white sand, lush tropical vegetation and crystal clear waters. Six Senses Laamu is a trendy escape ideally suited to luxury surfers.


Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Maldives’ beautiful southern Laamu Atoll. Just an inter-island plane trip from Malé International Airport and a short boat ride brings you to a pristine palm-fringed paradise.


The island itself is ringed by a gorgeous white beach and boasts a fabulous cyan-blue lagoon where dolphins swim in great numbers all year round.




The Six Senses house reef frequently offers a couple of quick, rippable lefts which are a short, convenient paddle from the resort beach. Beginners may also enjoy their very own separate wave right off the island beach. Across the channel and within view of the resort, the mighty Yin Yangs can, on its day, deliver one of the most powerful and perfect right-hand barrels in the country. The atoll contains several other waves – some extremely close, others accessed by a half hour boat ride.  

There are several good breaks around this area. As a guest at Six Senses Laamu you will have a choice of between 2 to 4 different breaks depending on the conditions.


The waves in the Maldives are usually small, from chest high to head high, but on good occasions the waves go well overhead and the swells will hit with some power. The best time for surfing is from April to October when wind and swell are at their optimum.

The biggest advantage of this region is the water: clear, warm, uncrowded, clean, full of life and not to be missed by any adventure-loving person. Come sea for yourself and experience the magic of the Maldives.
