Six Senses Kanuhura is set to welcome guests on 1 September.
“Six Senses has intentionally opted to reinvent a Maldivian icon, reimagining the existing resort and resources while continuing to protect the natural beauty of the island,” the resort said.
“What stays has been enhanced, from the Drift and Bottega dining outlets to the organic gardens, where a micro greens nursery mingles with the beauty of wild orchids,”
Home to one of the largest natural beaches in the Maldives, the resort offers two private islands as well, one for intimate island dining and the other for the ultimate castaway escape.
“Watching the island transform in the past few months has been an exciting journey, and we all look forward to revealing the new Six Senses Kanuhura,” said Bryce Seator, General Manager.
“Following its long history, the island has been reborn, and the overall experience has been reinvented to bring the brand’s sustainability and wellness ethos to a new corner in the Maldives.”
The resort’s 91 beachfront and overwater villas include 12 new Beach Retreats. These offer one to three bedrooms and private pools for families or larger groups.
The accommodations offer a sophisticated yet charming style to combine elegance with comfort. The interior colour palette is inspired by the turquoise lagoon and lush tropical nature. The design is purposely bold, polished over rustic, and eco-friendly. Everything is crafted from local and sustainable materials. The villas and retreats feature large windows to allow natural light to enter throughout the day and offer views of the lagoon and the ocean. The outdoor rain showers give a sense of bathing in nature under the expansive sky.
Suitable for families, couples or friends traveling together, the resort offers an array of activities for everyone to enjoy. Younger guests from three to 11 years old can discover their creativity at the Grow With Six Senses kids club, which offers fun and educational activities, such as treasure hunts, kids’ yoga, crafts, and up-cycling.
The Island Hideout is a place for teenagers to relax and enjoy games with their peers in a space specially designed for them. Families can take part in family cooking classes, water sports lessons, or private beach dining.
Couples can share romantic moments watching the sunset at the resort’s multi-deck Point restaurant and bar, or enjoy a private dinner on the beach under the stars.
Located in Lhaviyani Atoll, Six Senses Kanuhura is a 40-minute seaplane ride away from the Velana International Airport (MLE).
“The Six Senses Kanuhura team is excited to welcome its friends, old and new, and celebrate the latest addition to the Six Senses family,” the resort said.
