Six Senses Laamu has published the annual Maldives Underwater Initiative report.

Six Senses Laamu has published the annual Maldives Underwater Initiative (MUI) report. MUI is a multiple award-winning marine conservation initiative based at the 5-star resort, Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives. Six Senses Laamu was recently selected among the Top 25 Hotels in Asia.

According to the report, Six Senses Laamu spent USD 163,219 of the resort’s sustainability fund on projects that positively impacted numerous people, wildlife, and habitats in 2019. Furthermore, the majority of this expenditure was invested in furthering MUI’s research, education, and community projects.

Over the years MUI has invited some of the world’s leading marine conservationists to Laamu. Likewise, in 2019 the initiative worked with a range of researchers and storytellers, entrepreneurs, and lecturers. All of them played a vital role in helping MUI achieve their goals this year.

As the only resort in Laamu Atoll, we are fortunate to be located in a relatively untouched region of the Maldives. We are in Laamu to create a legacy, to leave this beautiful and unique part of the Maldives better than we found it. This vision was ignited by our General Manager, Marteyne van Well, and continues to burn through our research projects, which allow us to fully understand the marine resources that exist in Laamu and how we can best protect them. With scientific-based evidence and the support of the Laamu community, we hope to protect Laamu’s natural resources for generations to come.

A statement by Six Senses Laamu on the report

MUI consists of staff from the resort, as well as its three partner NGOs: The Manta Trust, Blue Marine Foundation, and The Olive Ridley Project. All of these partners work together to reach research, guest education, and community outreach goals.

As the first resort in Laamu Atoll, Six Senses Laamu takes a great deal of responsibility for the conservation of the marine and terrestrial environment upon which the resort and local community are reliant. The resort employs 55% Maldivian staff and works closely with all 13 island councils, the Laamu Atoll Council, and all 13,000 residents to achieve shared community development and education goals.
