When to visit
High season here is from November to April when rain is unlikely and the temperature sin Europe are lower; there is an understandable peak over Christmas & New Year. Temperatures remain in the late twenties and early thirties pretty much all year with rain bursts likely between May and November, however visitors are still likely to experience long hours of sunshine during these months.
Because of the geography of the Maldives it is quite possible to stay on an island resort for a full holiday without seeing any local life at all – Six Senses Laamu’s position, however, allows you to explore local inhabited islands as well as deserted islands in addition to the glorious expanse of ocean.
Explore Hithadhoo Island
A visit to this local island presents the opportunity to amble around the villages getting a glimpse of local life, visiting the school, community office, old Mosque and grocery stores. In the heart of the island is a lake well worth a visit for its natural flora and wild nature.
Full Day Island Hopping
Visiting two islands, Hithadhoo for a cultural exploration (see above) and a deserted island for a true, Crusoe experience. There is also a stop at one of the most beautiful reefs on the Atoll for a spot of snorkelling. Happy days!
Sunset Dolphin Cruise
Dolphins travel through the Laamu Atoll at sunrise and sunset and what better way to witness the antics of spinner dolphins than in combination with a glorious Indian Ocean sunset? Six Senses ensure that dolphins are treated with the utmost respect by following its own strict rules in relation to viewing. A knowledgeable marine biologist will also be on board to give you lots of interesting insights into the underwater life of the atoll.
Sunken Table Experience
We can all pull together a decent sand castle but at Six Senses Laamu there are sand architects who will build, just for you, a sunken dining room! They cleverly form seating and a table from sand
