When to travel

The Maldives has a tropical climate distinguished by two seasons, or monsoons: the dry northeast monsoon from December to March, and the wet southwestern monsoon from May to November, with more strong winds and rain. April is a transitional period noted for clear water and heat. The temperature remains remarkably consistent at around 30°C.

February to April is the hottest period and resorts are almost all operating at capacity during this period. Mid-December to early January comes at even more of a premium due to Christmas and New Year and prices are even higher. Easter and the Italian holiday week in August also attract peak prices at most resorts.

Storms are more likely from May to November, though it’s still warm, skies can be cloudy and the humidity is higher. This is the low season, with fewer people and lower prices, with the exception of August.

Diving is good year-round, although a basic rule is that life on the reef is more varied and visibility better on the western side of any atoll from May to November and from the eastern side of any atoll December to April.

The surfing season runs from March to October, which is when resorts are cheapest.

Location and directions

Laamu, Maldives

Six Senses Laamu sits on the Laamu Atoll to the south of the Maldives archipelago. It is the only resort on the virtually uncharted Laamu atoll, deep in the Indian Ocean.

How to get there

10-hour 30-minute direct flight to Malé, on Hulhulé Island. From Malé International Airport, it is just a 50-minute flight, along the beautiful Maldivian coastline to Kadhdhoo. A short 25-minute boat trip later and guests have arrived at the powder white sand and crystal clear turquoise water paradise which is Six Senses Laamu.
