If you’re anything like us, at least one of the luxurious, far-flung Six Senses properties has a prime spot on your must-travel-to list. If you’re a traveler who also happens to be a water enthusiast, there could be no better time to get away than this Sept. 30th to Oct. 4th, when Six Senses Laamu hosts some of the top names in water sports and marine conservation for the Maldives’ first annual Waterman event.

To say this would be a stimulating trip is to say the least. There will be a host of world-renowned surfers, windsurfers, kitesurfers, and divers who will offer special clinics to guests looking to hone their skills in the ocean. After a thorough physical workout (and maybe a spa treatment or two), you’ll have a chance to attend discussions on some of the most important marine and drinking water issues with top conservationists while enjoying the attention and thoughtful touches that Six Senses puts into everything, from their ethically minded menus to their gorgeous private villas.

The event couldn’t happen in a more appropriate place – the Maldives has colorful coral reefs, a vibrant underwater eco-system, and has been a hotspot for international surfers for decades. Made up of 1,190 stunning islands, the Maldives do potentially stand to lose everything if sea levels continue to rise. Six Senses has pledged that all proceeds of packages booked during the event will go to the Blue Marine Foundation, Plant A Fish and Water Charity. A four night package (US$6,000 for two people or US$4,400 single) or seven nights (US$9,900 for two people or US$ 7,400 single) includes all breakfasts and dinners, the Barefoot Gala Dinner, a limited number of clinics or spa treatments and round-trip seaplane transfer flights.

A bit pricey, yes, but for true water enthusiasts (or those who will appreciate the bevy of bronzed bodies sure to be milling about) it’s sure to be quite the experience.
