Kanuhura Maldives has been added to the Six Senses portfolio and will adopt the brand in December 2022. This transition is a truly exciting moment in the long history of Kanuhura as the resort will be adding new wellness, sustainability, and conservation initiatives into its daily operations, along with locally inspired experiences and activities. Kokaa Spa will become a Six Senses Spa, taking on the brand’s high-touch high-tech approach to wellness, while its restaurants will adopt the Eat With Six Senses philosophy of natural ingredients, local and sustainable, and less is more. This will be the beginning of a new chapter in the resort’s story that will be unveil later this year.
Below the water, the Lhaviyani Atoll offers more than 40 dive sites for exploring marine life. In the coming months, new watersport activities and high-performance equipment will be added in partnership with Ocean Wings, which shares the Six Senses mission of providing the ultimate under- and above-water experiences, while inspiring people about the importance of ocean conservation. Sustainability reaches far beyond the building design and protecting the local flora and fauna. Projects are in place to support a neighboring island community with a focus on education and student development.
“Six Senses Kanuhura is a unique opportunity to combine our three best-loved ideals in life: sustainability, wellness and locally themed experiences,” says Six Senses Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs. “By day, your feet will be sandy and your hair salty. By night, surrender to the spa and your skin will be smoothed, your soul will be soothed, and your mood will be as sparkling as your sundowner.”
New landscaping of the organic herb garden will create the perfect conditions for mouthwatering vegetables, herbs and salad leaves. These will be collected fresh each day to use in the restaurants and interactive workshops with the chef. Perhaps nowhere on earth will a farm to fork picnic taste better than marooned on Jehunuhura in the middle of the Indian Ocean with only a possessive hermit crab for company.
The boutique will also provide a new space dedicated to sustainable fashion. Everything has arrived at the door as mindfully and consciously as possible with a focus on creativity, forward-thinking design, and attention to detail. In short, Six Senses Kanuhura will provide the romantic setting, discreet wining and dining, star-filled skies, deserted beaches, and pioneering wellness for a restful and restorative stay.
