Holidays with social distancing: Six Senses Laamu offers natural advantage
The naturally ‘self-isolated’ Maldives has a “one-island, one-resort” advantage that holds extra appeal right now. When you’re ready to travel, we’d love to see you, and we have everything in place for extra peace of mind (body and soul).
As a dream destination, the Maldives is a perfect fit for those who like extra space around them. Reopening on August 1, Six Senses Laamu gives you the option of a private villa either on the beach or set above the shallow lagoon with a panoramic ocean vista.
“During this period, we appreciate that people want to spend quality time with loved ones, some of whom they may not have seen for months. They are seeking a vacation where they can feel reassured all the safety precautions are in place without it feeling like a hassle,” Six Senses Laamu’s General Manager Marteyne van Well said.
“That’s where the Maldives comes into its own because it is naturally secluded and stress free.”
Over the past few months, the entire resort has received a face lift. The culinary team has been making the most of this time to craft new, sustainable and healthy dishes of the finest quality that can be enjoyed at a number of private dining locations.
What Laamu lacks in crowds it makes up for in colourful marine life. There really is no glass screen between you and the great outdoors, so you can relax on a sandbank with only a crab for company or rub fins with Davina, the most frequently-sighted green turtle around the resort.
Families will be particularly interested in the Junior Marine Biology programme. While the resort was closed, the programme was adapted into a 10-week series of free web-based classes but this will be available once again for young VIPs in person.
Six Senses Laamu is accessed by a 40-minute flight from Velana International Airport. The resort offers meet and greet airport arrival assistance and your 15-minute speedboat trip to the resort is arranged by your dedicated Guest Experience Maker (GEM), who will remain on hand throughout your stay to organise everything from island hopping to diving, surfing and fishing.
Six Senses Laamu was recently named the “Best for Privacy” on the BRIDES list of 10 Luxurious Eco-Resorts for a Sustainable Escape, which stated: “Very few properties rival the exclusivity or elegance of this island idyll.”
