Six Senses Laamu, Maldives


Beautifully situated deep in the Indian Ocean, surrounded by extraordinary coral house reefs with an amazing view to the Ocean and Maldivian nature, Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu that offers an unforgettable experiences over and underwater.

This is the perfect opportunity to explore the exciting wonders of their new diving centre - Deep Blue Divers which is owned and operated by the Six Senses Laamu resort with your friends and family.

The diving team at Deep Blue Divers is staffed by 10 international dive instructors and dive masters who can speak a total of 10 languages. Perfect for almost anyone around the world to bring your friends and family! They also offer PADI Courses and guide the daily dive trips and have received the PADI Green Star Award in their first month of operation.

I don't know about you, but I personally am always concerned about how resorts preserve and respect Marine life. As for Six Senses Laamu, their aim is to focus on appreciation, education and understanding of the Marine environment and they provide diving courses which also include more information about protecting and preserving the sea animals.

With that, their Deep Blue Divers centre have partnered with Project Aware who has listed them as 100% AWARE and are certified by PADI. Both these recognitions have followed the dive centres' commitment to marine conservation and sustainable dive practices, which includes the protection of marine life, no anchoring of boats, sustainable cleaning products and continuous support to the Resident Marine team and to the research of the onsite team of the Manta Trust and the Blue Foundation.

Enjoy complimentary snorkelling gear and experience the house reef which is the most popular spot for snorkelers, as you can explore its busy marine life. What's best is you can also enter the water off the stairs of the Chill Bar and follow the reef slope. How convenient!

The resort is surrounded by a large variety of coral reefs to which you can dive and is all catered to your level of dive experience.

For beginners, the House Reef is beautifully sloping with three pinnacles standing just a few meters away, and is home to the resident Green turtles and many colourful reef fish.

The Inner reefs are a 10 to 20 minute boat ride away and each has its own unique features such as black coral walls, caves and anemone gardens.

As we go into the outer reefs, this is a perfect opportunity to cruise or drift along loping reef walls where you get to see the friendly reef sharks and turtles usually pass by.

The larger marine life, such as grey reef sharks, eagle rays, huge schools of snappers, and barracudas reside in the channels.

At Manta Point (also known as Hithadhoo Corner), there is a manta ray cleaning station just five minutes away from the resort. Here is the chance for you to observe the resident manta ray population all year round, along with reef sharks, turtles and the huge diversity of marine life. Both the channel and the Manta Point dives are recommended for experienced divers only.

For those who wish to learn how to dive with Deep Blue Divers, the dive centre offers PADI courses and Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver and Dive master certification.

Not forgetting something a little more family and kid friendly, the Bubblemaker course is available for children between eight and 10 years, while the Discover Scuba Diving course is for children from 10 years and above.

Why not look into their Nitrox specialty course along with a set of specific courses is also available such as the Manta Trust Specialty course, the Turtle and the Maldivian Shark and Ray course. For these courses, aside from diving, you can learn more about these marine critters and how to protect them.

Explore Six Senses Laamu resort with your friends and family. Where you get to enjoy the gorgeous scenery and is a perfect getaway to relax in and out of the water!
