When it comes to a stay at Six Senses Laamu is one of the most unique Maldives surf resorts out there – where barefoot luxury and sustainability meet pumping, uncrowded waves.
As the only resort island in Laamu Atoll, Six Senses is truly in a world of its own – where the only thing interrupting your sprawling ocean views are empty surf breaks, and palm tree-fringed local islands.
And amongst this stunning part of the Maldives are plenty of waves to keep even the most experienced surfers happy – with the world-class right-hander Yin Yangs situated just across the channel and serving up hackable, hollow waves.
For goofy footers and those wanting punchy lefts, Petrols is a favourite of surfers in the area – a fun wedge takeoff followed by the perfect sections for perfecting those top turn techniques.
Or if the swells right, a 30-minute boat ride will put you in the line up at Machines – a mechanical wave (hence the name!) that on the right conditions offer up some of the longest tube rides in the Maldives.
Six Senses Laamu is one of the few Maldives surf resorts that offers perfect waves for less experienced surfers too – with the house reef (aka Jetty C) offering up great options for intermediate surfers and more mellow options for those looking to learn to surf with the in house instructors.
This mix of waves makes Laamu the ideal resort for confident surfers travelling with family or partners who aren’t as experienced or would like to give it a go.
Alongside the surf, Six Senses Laamu is also famed for it’s incredible scuba diving and surrounding reefs too – so if you want to spend even more time in the ocean, get geared up for an encounter with manta rays, turtles, reef sharks and more!
And of course, if you’re not a diver, the snorkelling around the resort is next level too!
Your base for your ultimate Maldives surf resort experience is the perfect balance of the luxury living you expect from the Maldives, combines with a true focus on sustainability – and it has been the core of the ethos of the resort since it first opened, and way before eco-credentials became a marketing tactic!
From the natural materials used to create the stunning overwater bungalows to ingredients grown in the gardens of the resort, this is luxury with a conscience.
Alongside your incredible surf guides, every guest is also assigned a “GEM” – a guest experience maker – who will go above and beyond to make your stay a memorable one.
Whether that’s finding a photographer to snap those perfect family holiday snaps, arranging a candlelit dinner on a sand cay with your partner or simply making sure you have a post-surf massage all booked in – they’ve got it covered!
So if you’re looking to hit the waves with some friends, your family or an extended group Six Senses has everything you need for that perfect Maldives surf trip – the only questions is, when will you be going?
Malé Airport, Maldives
For those looking to learn to surf, Six Senses Laamu offers up a mellow beach break, ideal for getting started, followed by some of the mellower sections of the house reef to push things to the next level.
Jetty C is the ideal starting ground for intermediates wanting an easy to reach wave and practice their reef surfing. Or take a guided surf trip across to Petrols to progress even further, or even Ying Yangs on a smaller swell.
Experienced surfers will enjoy the fun, rippable sections of Jetty C and nearby Petrols, but the real fun is via boat trip across to Ying Yangs or one of the many faster shallower breaks nearby.
