Far from the typical getaway, the intimate Indian Ocean islands that comprise the Maldives have become a coveted destination for travelers who appreciate a combination of rustic adventure and comfortable luxury. With Six Senses Laamu, we're thrilled to bring members a Maldives experience that caters to families. Located in the southern Maldives, Laamu is partially encircled by an atoll, or ring-shaped coral reef, creating a crystalline lagoon where kids can swim, snorkel, water ski and wakeboard in the calm waters. The entire family can set off in a speedboat for a day of island-hopping or float in a catamaran in the peaceful coves.
Ask your butler to arrange for a speedboat excursion to a nearby "deserted" island. You can stock up on provisions at the Attitude Cellar & Deli. It's a great place to get picnic provisions.
Six Senses offers half-day excursions with an experience captain on a catamaran to neighboring islands. If you have a sailing license, you can opt to take the catamaran out by yourself.
From the resort, you can see the white spray from Yin Yang. Take a morning or afternoon trip to nearby island Hithadhoo. The breaks here are surfed almost exclusively by resort guests. The best time of the year is April to October.
If you need a night for just the two of you, take advantage of the resort's babysitting services and have your butler arrange for this dinner experience. You'll dine on delicious barbecue in an ocean breeze.
For a true look into Maldivian life as a native, visit Hithadhoo Island. You'll have the rare opportunity to see inside a local's home. Visit the mosque, grocery shops and a lake in the heart of the island.
A professionally managed children's club is offered on-site at Six Senses. In addition to babysitting services, families can enjoy games, cookie baking, treasure hunts, snorkeling, yoga and more.

As with every Six Senses resort, you'll find a commitment to a crafted guest experience during your stay here. This includes personalized butler service, award-winning spa treatments and keen attention to detail.
The weather in the Maldives is warm and tropical year-round. May to November is the typical monsoon season but even in these months, you're likely to encounter long hours of daylight and warm sunshine between quick storms.
On local islands, Sunni Islam is the state religion and Muslim laws are observed. This means that swimwear and see-through clothing are forbidden in public areas and alcohol is restricted and unavailable when you are away from the resort.
There is no need to tip on top of your tabs at restaurants and bars as a gratuity has typically already been included. Do tip your personal butler, drivers, housekeepers and use your discretion when it comes to activity vendors.
The Maldives is nothing short of paradise. Located just north of the equator, the islands are blessed with near-perfect tropical weather throughout the year. As with any island destination, be aware of monsoon season, which generally brings bursts of heavy rain and wind out of the southwest from May through November. However, these storms are usually punctuated by abundant sunshine and clear skies.
