Six Senses Laamu has confirmed that it will be
business as usual following the acquisition of the property by
Singapore-based HPL through its subsidiary Leisure Frontiers Pvt
Chairman of HPL Hotels & Resorts, said, “As the new owners, we
are extremely pleased that Six Senses will continue operating the
property, which incorporates all the creativity and personal
attention to detail for which Six Senses is renowned. The group’s
pioneering position in the Maldives gives them a unique insight to
target markets and to operating in the destination.”
Designed and operated by Six Senses, the 97
villa eco-friendly property, with its award-winning Six Senses
Spa, opened in 2011 in the southern Maldives’ Laamu atoll.
As well as a stunning location, with
powder white sand and azure blue lagoon waters, the property
embraces Six Senses’ environmental and local community commitment.
The idyllic destination presents a wealth of
activities offered by the resort. Dive enthusiasts will thrill to
the early morning and evening dives, or have an entire excursion
of underwater adventures planned for them.
Water sports choices
abound, with wakeboarding, water-skiing, windsurfing, catamaran
sailing, and the added bonus of the aspirational offshore Ying
Yang wave for surfing enthusiasts.
Then there’s the dolphins, swimming and spinning
along the shoreline. Private picnics are to be had on nearby
deserted islands, barbecue dinners on the resort’s sandbank and
full days of island hopping, where snorkelling and a delicious
lunch enhance the castaway experience.
Six Senses, CEO Neil Jacobs
said, “I am very happy to have HPL as the new owner of a Six
Senses resort. This is a wonderful culmination of more than twenty
years of personal and professional relationships with executives
of HPL, during which time the company has established an enviable
record of being exceptional owners.”
The acquisition of Six Senses Laamu will be a
seamless transition for trade and consumer sectors, with all
programmes and commitments on-going.
