Six Senses joined forces with Singapore-based Hotel Properties Limited (HPL) to debut a resort on the private island hideaway of Lhaviyani Atoll. Scheduled to adopt the Six Senses brand in late 2022, Six Senses Kanuhura will be a northerly sister to the acclaimed Six Senses Laamu.
Encompassing three private islands – two deserted neighboring islands and Kanuhura itself – this retreat boasts white sands, turquoise lagoons, and lush tropical greenery. Until it debuts next year as the Six Senses brand property, it is available for bookings through www.kanuhura-maldives.com and www.ihg.com, and guests can earn and spend IHG Rewards points and experience exclusive benefits as the resort joins the award-winning loyalty program.
Six Senses Kanuhura will feature 80 private overwater, beach, and spacious family villas. Recognized as the Best Luxury Resort in the Maldives at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards and Best of the Best in the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice, Kanuhura will undergo renovation over the coming months that will include an upgrade of the overwater villas with private pools, new family suites, new dining concepts and a pioneering wellness offering.
Six Senses partnered with Ocean Wings Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of Ocean Group Maldives, to add new watersport activities and high-performance equipment. With Gandalf and Davina proving popular flippered friends over at Six Senses Laamu, a turtle safari may also be organized on request to a turtle point less than five minutes away from the resort. New landscaping of the organic herb garden will create excellent conditions for vegetables, herbs, and salad leaves. These will be collected fresh each day to use in the restaurants and interactive workshops with the chef. The boutique will also feature a new space dedicated to sustainable fashion.
