One of the many Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, Six Senses Laamu is the only hotel on Olhuveli Island and it has the highly coveted private over-water villas, in addition to stunning on-land villas. Arriving is as simple as booking a flight to Malé International Airport, taking another 35-minute flight and then a 15-minute speedboat ride to reach the secluded resort. The best time to travel here is during their summer, from December-April, which is the dry season and the weather averages a balmy 82 degrees.
