Farm to Pool at Six Senses Laamu, a menu as fresh and organic as it gets
Six Senses Laamu features an organic garden where 40 different herbs, vegetables, salad leaves and micro-herbs are grown. Chef Martin and his culinary team have teamed up with the gardeners to create a daily-changing menu, entirely based on fresh and organic ingredients, served by the pool at Sip Sip.
The menu features a different starter, salad, pizza and dessert every day for guests to choose from.
“The idea is to offer guests an additional healthy set of light dish options to enjoy by the pool with locally sourced ingredients. Everything is prepared simply with no addition of processed or modified foods,” says Martin, executive chef.
Chef Martin shares one of his favourite, so far, Farm to Pool recipes for Goats’ Cheese Salad.
- 20 grams of mixed lettuce leaves
- Five cherry tomatoes cut in half
- Quarter of an onion
- Three goat’s cheese patties
- One tablespoon of mango compote
- Four sundried tomatoes

- Arrange the crispy goats’ cheese on top of the salad.
