Dolphins swim along the seashell dappled shores of Six Senses Laamu. I have seen them with my own scuba diving eyes! There must have been at least 40 of these frolicking friends when I ascended from my first ocean dive in over a decade, thanks to the good folks at Ocean Dimensions here in the Maldives.
Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in Laamu Atoll and just five degrees north of the Equator. We snorkel in Laamu’s coral rich house reef among Oriental Sweetlips, parrotfish and even green turtles. Before I fly out I hope to brave the wave at Yin Yang, the Maldives’ most famous surfing break just offshore.
But it’s not all duck diving and wave riding, I’m here for the food! Both mine – for two special dinners here at Leaf Restaurant – and the work of the incredible team led by Executive Chef Martin below.Print
