Six Senses Laamu appoints Wayan Sudarma as executive chef
Six Senses Laamu has appointed Wayan Sudarma as its executive chef.
In an announcement, Six Senses Laamu said chef Wayan joined the resort as an executive sous chef in February 2016, and was promoted to the post of executive chef earlier this month. Staying true to the brand’s core value of pioneering wellness, Six Senses Laamu continues to focus on health in cuisine, and Wayan is no stranger to wellness menus and programmes, it added.
Balinese by origin, chef Wayan has profound knowledge of Asian cuisines, and always ensures that his personal modern twist is added to every dish.
“Experimenting with the local ingredients and with the fresh produce from the organic garden to create a true Six Senses experience is definitely a call to a chef’s creativity. Culinary innovation through sustainable practices is a beacon for the team, while we ensure that we deliver the best quality service to even the most discerning pallets,” chef Wayan was quoted in the announcement, as saying.
According to Six Senses Laamu, chef Wayan has enhanced his already vast professional culinary skills by working alongside Michelin-star chefs such as Stefano Cavallini and Jesper Koch. Chef Wayan’s generous and outgoing character is highly valued by Six Senses Laamu guests, who very often approach him for his signature Balinese satay chicken recipe, the resort said.
“It is with great pleasure to announce the appointment of chef Wayan as executive chef. His aptness in delivering the finest culinary experiences to our guests while maintaining focus on a healthy and sustainable aspect, make him a valuable asset to the team and we look forward to his culinary leadership,” Marteyne van Well, general manager of Six Senses Laamu, said.
Six Senses Laamu is the only resort located in the Laamu atoll, which lies in the southern part of the Maldives. Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the resort prides itself on its commitment to sustainable operations and development as outlined by Agenda 21 and Green Globe Benchmarking.

Six Senses Laamu offers a wide range of dining options, with cuisines from around the world, a swimming pool with a sunken bar, an ice cream parlour, an overwater wine cellar and a signature Chill bar. Many activities, excursions and options are available for everyone to enjoy, both overwater and underwater, in addition to the Six Senses Spa.
