Six Senses Laamu is located on the privately owned Olhuveli Island in the Laamu Atoll, towards the south of the Maldives archipelago. With a strong focus on attention to detail, Six Senses Laamu is designed to offer individual style along with a strong sense of community.

The innovative and unique experiences are located predominantly over water providing panoramic views of the lush islands of the Laamu Atoll plus spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
- Longitude, offering a range of creative menus from both hemispheres including both casual and formal dishes to suit any tastes. Longitude provides dining daybeds and over water nets on split level pavilions to create a relaxed and memorable experience.
- Our humble, over water cooking hut turns out a global array of authentic fare from spicy Indian curries, pad Thai and Chinese stir fry to piping hot pies from the wood fire pizza oven. Guests willing to take their eyes off Laamu’s oceanic landscape long enough to follow a recipe or two may take cooking classes here from chefs who hail from around the world.
- Altitude is a 6.4 metre high glass tower rising out of the ocean showcasing its own well-stocked collection of wine, a Meat and Cheese Deli and a tasting table in its centre – the coolest table in the Atoll.
- Ice is for all those with a sweet tooth. From the crepe bar and cocoa kitchen to the 40 flavored ice creams, the choices are endless. With daily cooking clinics, just leave room for the tasting.
- Afternoons are for taking tea high above the white-capped waves, on colourfully padded day beds and chaises overlooking the Indian Ocean.For even better views, gaze through the professional telescope. Snack on what Maldivians call ‘short eats’ at this second story lounge
- Further into Laamu’s lagoon where Napoleon wrasse and parrotfish swim along aspectrum of thriving coral, these six glass aquarium tables above the sea are the only spot in the Maldives to dine on a zero carbon menu. While stars illuminate the scene from above and waves lap soothingly underneath, feast on inventive, entirely local fare like grilled reef fish over a fire of coconut shells with Maldivian spices, coriander and lime, a memorable meal as groundbreaking as it is gourmet.
- arly mornings find Helen our resident mixologist in Laamu’s organic gardens, picking rosemary, mint, lemongrass and ripe fruits for homegrown cocktails like the Rhubarb Bamboo and a Maldivian Bloody Mary with Laamu’s chili and basil. Next the young Londoner bicycles over sand towards the kitchen, to slow roast tomatoes and dry herbs for her Rosemary Smoked Red Snapper. She makes mangosteen and screwpine jams, apple purees and syrups of ginger, chili and tea to mix into liquid delights. By nightfall, you’ll find Helen, smoking gun in hand, decanting molecular concoctions behind the sunken over water bar while visiting DJs and jazz musicians provide equally inspired acoustics.
