Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives will be getting a sister property next year, with the island resort of Kanuhura set to join the ultra-luxury Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas’ stable in 2022.
Kanuhura comprises of three neighbouring islands, two of which are deserted. Kanuhura is a laid-back retreat with white sands, turquoise lagoons, lush tropical greenery and palm trees.
Six Senses Kanuhura will offer 80 private overwater, beach and family villas with sunset or sunrise views. A 40-minute seaplane flight from the main international airport on Malé, the remote paradise vibe is rivaled only by two completely deserted islands, Jehunuhura and Masleggihuraa.
Sensitive enhancements are planned over the coming months, including an upgrade of the overwater villas to include private pools, new family suites, new dining concepts and a wellness offering.
Below the water, the Lhaviyani Atoll offers more than 40 dive sites for exploring marine life.
“Six Senses Kanuhura is a unique opportunity to combine our three best-loved ideals in life: sustainability, wellness and locally themed experiences,” remarked Neil Jacobs, Six Senses Chief Executive Officer. “By day, your feet will be sandy and your hair salty. By night, surrender to the spa and your skin will be smoothed, your soul will be soothed, and your mood will be as sparkling as your sundowner.”
Six Senses Kanuhura is slated to open in late 2022.
