Your Laamu experience begins with arrival at Male' International Airport where our airport representative will be waiting for you outside the arrival hall. You then will be accompanied directly to the domestic terminal or the Island Aviation Lounge, which is just a two minute stroll from the arrival hall. A flight of approximately 35 minutes allows you to experience a bird’s eye view of the beautiful Maldives archipelago. Our Guest Experience Maker will welcome you at the Domestic Airport (Laamu Kadhdhoo Airport) and a 15-minute speedboat ride will take you to the resort.
Resort Transfers and Transfer Fee
Round-trip transfers between Male’s International Airport and the resort are by domestic commercial flight followed by a speed boat transfer to Six Senses Laamu. The rate will be USD 590 + 23.2% tax and service charge per person. This will be arranged and booked accordingly by the resort upon making a reservation.
Domestic Flight Operating Hours
Domestic flights within Maldives operate throughout the day and night. Depending on the destination you are flying to, variable schedules determine the best connecting flight in line with your international flight or onward transfer. Flight schedules remain subject to change and are traditionally released to the resort by the domestic airline company at/around 6 pm daily.
Is My Flight Direct?
On some occasions your flight may have a stop on route to drop off and pick up passengers at other domestic airports. We will endeavor to provide you with the most direct route, subject to availability and the required connecting time of your international flight, or onward transfer arrangements.
International Business travelers: 40 kilograms, plus five kilograms for hand luggage per person.
International Economy travelers: 30 kilograms, plus five kilograms for hand luggage per person.
Baggage exceeding these allowances will be subject to excess weight charges which will be advised by the airline. Passengers are also advised that over-sized carry-on hand luggage may not fit the overhead compartments of smaller airplanes and will be treated as check-in baggage.
If you are planning to bring oversized items such as surfboards, pushchairs etc., please let us know well in advance so that we can confirm with the domestic handler that they can be carried on your flight due to baggage space limitations of some smaller airplanes. For example, the maximum length of a packed surfboard must not exceed seven feet (213 centimeters) in length. You should also advise us and your travel advisor in advance if you plan to travel with excess baggage.
Combined Boat Transfers
The speedboat transfer from Six Senses Laamu is a combined boat transfer which means they are shared with other guests of the resort.
Alternatively, you may have paid a supplement to travel by private charted transportation, in which case the boat will depart as soon as you are ready without delays.
If you wish to enquire about upgrading to a private transfer, please do not hesitate to contact your Guest Experience Maker who will be happy to try to make the necessary arrangements subject to boat availability.
Two Island Holidays
If your vacation includes more than one resort reachable by both boat and domestic flight, please note that your transfer to the second resort will be via the airport. As with all combinable transfers, you may be required to wait for other international flights to arrive before boat transfer is ready to depart. Our dedicated airport representatives will be present for any assistance.
Please note requests for specific transfer times are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.
