When our guest Ammar wanted to surprise his wife on their honeymoon, their GEM Mafaz arranged them to watch her favorite movie at our Jungle Cinema under the twinkling stars with popcorns and drinks. With #TheLittleThings like this, each of our hosts craft truly #OutOfTheOrdinary experiences for every guest in Laamu.
Our guests can experience the Six Senses sustainability philosophy and #TheLittleThings we do for the environment by visiting our Earth Lab. Recycling glass, candle making, and harvesting fresh eggs are just a few of the things guests can learn about and take home with them to make their lives a little more sustainable. #OutOfTheOrdinary
Happy International Day for Biodiversity! Our Marine Biologists record the diversity of marine life we see around the resort, and so far they have identified nearly 300 species of fish, 12 species of ray, 12 species of shark, 3 species of turtle and 2 species of dolphin! These experts are always available in our Welcome Champa to help you figure out what you saw on your snorkel or dive - #TheLittleThings and the #OutOfTheOrdinary things!

After learning to make coconut oil with a traditional Maldivian "huni gondi", our guests deserve nothing less than a personalized bottle with a handwritten label to take home with them. Every time they use the oil, the smell of coconut will remind them of their #OutOfTheOrdinary stay at Six Senses Laamu. #TheLittleThings
When you have so much fun at Sip Sip pool, you might forget that you brought your bike. Or when you have so much to eat at Leaf Restaurant, you may just want to walk back to your villa. In any case, if you misplace your personal bicycle with your initials on it, somehow it always magically finds its way back to your villa, doesn't it?
We have a surprise ready for our little VIPs traveling with their stuffed best friends. Our housekeeping team will place an extra bed in the villa for the stuffed toys with a custom embroidered blanket to keep them warm and secure next to their best friends during their stay at Six Senses Laamu. #TheLittleThings #OutOfTheOrdinary

Our marine and sustainability teams recently completed a training course with the Climate Change Adaptation Project -CCAP in which they learned new survey techniques both on land and underwater. These monitoring surveys allow us to collect detailed information about our island and surrounding reef in order for our team to develop protection and conservation measures in the future. #OutOfTheOrdinary #Maldives
This week Professor Callum Roberts and Dr. Julie Hawkins have been on site as visiting practitioners sharing their knowledge and experiences of the oceans. Callum wowed our guests by talking about the value of coral reef ecosystems supported by stunning photographs from his colleague and co-author Alex Mustard, a world famous underwater photographer. His thought provoking discussions about the future of the Maldives and it’s reefs left our hosts feeling inspired and motivated to act as local ambassadors for change within their communities.
