The core gallery, often known as the Tank, has five instructional viewing booths for adults and children and a high-resolution LED display floor to provide visitors to the SHELL an immersive experience. It uses a variety of underwater Laamu atoll landscapes to shed light on a few marine life micro-topics. This interactive gallery, created by Singapore's Illuminate Productions, is exclusive to the Maldives and aims to inform visitors about the fascinating aquatic life near Six Senses Laamu. The content, which was created in the style of a glass-bottom boat, will be frequently updated to include fresh footage obtained by the resort's diving crew and diver hosts, creating a constantly-evolving backdrop for visitors to enjoy during their many stays at the resort.
"The SHELL at Six Senses Laamu's opening is a significant occasion for the resort and the firm as a whole since it illustrates Marteyne and her team's commitment to the ocean environment and biodiversity, a major concern. According to Six Senses CEO Neil Jacobs, "We are equally pleased and excited about how Six Senses is putting to life our corporate ideals in the lovely and vulnerable Maldives ecosystem through the SHELL.
Young (or young at heart) and aspiring marine scientists can learn about Laamu and the undersea environment in the Kids' Zone. Highlights include the "Draw Alive" feature where kids can colour in their favourite marine creatures and watch them come to life on a big screen with the help of advanced animation technology to watch them swim and move throughout a virtual world, and an augmented reality sandbox where users can change and redesign habitats and topography using projection mapping technology.
According to Lawrence Menz, Project Manager of the SHELL, "The Maldives Underwater Initiative by Six Senses Laamu also needs a larger location to call home, as the team is expanding in size and goals, just like the hermit crab has to move into a larger shell when it outgrows the previous one. The SHELL will use amazing graphics, immersive experiences, and interactive elements to highlight the beautiful marine world that surrounds us. We'll be undertaking cutting-edge research in our brand-new lab spaces in the hopes of discovering at least some of Laamu's queries.
The SHELL has a 506-square-foot (47-square-meter) amphitheatre with breathtaking underwater world images that serves as a backdrop for the team as they share their stories of the land and waters of Laamu and present their research and discoveries to visitors and professional colleagues.
According to Philippa Roe, Head Marine Biologist, "The MUI team has been trying to promote Laamu as a hub for marine research and become an example of sustainable marine resource management in the Maldives over the years. The resources of the centre will enable us to make even greater steps toward understanding and assisting the marine environment and achieving our aim. We submitted 12 research papers at the 2022 Maldives Marine Science Symposium that were centred on studies on Laamu. This knowledge played a role in the creation of six Marine Protected Areas in the atoll and the designation of Laamu as a Mission Blue Hope Spot in 2021.
The team is aware that conservation requires a coordinated effort between scientific inquiry, local support, and global knowledge in order to be truly successful. To protect the environment and the people of Laamu, The SHELL intends to combine all these components in a unique and interesting way.
Six Senses Laamu's description The only five-star hotel in the Laamu Atoll is Laamu. It is encircled by a stunning coral house reef deep in the Indian Ocean. There are beach villas and on-land eating options available, but the majority of the homes and services are located above water. With breathtaking views of the ocean and Maldivian landscape, each villa offers a feeling of privacy and tranquilly.
An ice cream shop, an over-water wine cellar, and the hotel's famous Chill bar are just a few of the eating options available at Six Senses Laamu. In addition to the Six Senses Spa, there are several activities and excursions offered on land, in the water, and underwater.
