Picture yourself on a pristine white sandy beach, surrounded by swaying palm trees and crystal-clear turquoise waters. Now, add two private islands, a commitment to wellness and sustainability, and a touch of luxury. Welcome to Six Senses Kanuhura, an island paradise located in the Lhaviyani Atoll of the Maldives that is ready to welcome new and returning friends to an unforgettable experience.
With 91 beachfront and overwater villas, including 12 newly introduced one- and two-bedroom Beach Retreats and the three-bedroom Beach Reserve, the resort caters to both families and couples seeking quality time together. The architecture mirrors the laid-back tropical island vibe, while the interior design draws inspiration from the vibrant colors of the Maldivian nature that surrounds it.
Six Senses Kanuhura understands that memories are made through experiences. Whether it’s a leisurely sunset stroll on the beach, a family dinner under a starlit sky, or a picnic on a deserted island, every moment is curated to foster a sense of reconnection.
The resort’s holistic approach to family travel includes the Grow With Six Senses kids’ club and the Island Hideout, designed for teenagers to forge friendships and make lasting memories. Families can partake in tailored experiences such as family picnics on secluded islands, private cinema screenings, and group activities like cooking classes, catamaran sailing, and paper-making sessions at the Earth Lab.
One of the most enchanting aspects of Six Senses Kanuhura is its immersive connection to nature. From the gentle rustling of coconut tree leaves to the rhythmic ocean waves, the island’s uninterrupted natural sounds create a soothing ambiance. At the Six Senses Spa, oceanic drums and singing bowls offer a sound-healing journey. A biohacking lounge helps guests overcome jetlag and relax between dives and workouts, thanks to expert therapists offering locally inspired treatments.
The resort’s culinary offerings span the globe, following the Eat With Six Senses concept. Fresh, sustainably sourced ingredients from the island’s organic garden, local fishermen, and regional producers make up the menu. From Spanish-influenced cuisine at The Point to traditional Italian dishes at Bottega, there’s a wide spectrum of flavors and aromas to savor. The Market dazzles with influences from Southeast Asia, Japan, and India, while Sip & Sand offers poolside culinary adventures. The Castaway lunch at Drift, nestled in the lush tropical nature of Jehunuhura, is an unmissable experience, with freshly caught local reef fish sizzling slowly on the grill.
Six Senses Kanuhura’s commitment to sustainability is evident in every aspect of the resort. From sustainably sourced food ingredients to on-site water production, organic gardening, and active contributions to marine conservation in the Lhaviyani Atoll, the brand’s ethos is deeply ingrained in the resort’s operations.
Located 150 kilometers north of Male, Six Senses Kanuhura is easily accessible via a short 40-minute seaplane ride from Velana International Airport (MLE). As it reopens its doors, this island haven promises not just a vacation but a transformative experience that combines luxury, wellness, sustainability, and the natural beauty of the Maldives.
