Myself and my wife travelled here for our honeymoon in August and were blown away from the first moment we stepped onto the speedboat. Although it is a bit of a trek from Male airport it is very much worth the effort. The staff are the best I have ever witnessed with complete attention to detail and they make everything... More

Yes, this is a top hotel, there's no doubting that, the food, service, staff, and above all the accommodation were all 5 star. What was wrong with it then, why have I given it only 3 out of 5? It's because of the price. I have stayed in plenty of 5 star resorts in my time, and this was getting... More

If there is such thing as paradise is here at six senses. They welcome you from the moment you step foot on Male till the moment you leave. The concept is amazing, beautiful and rustic. Below is my detailed review. Getting here: This is tricky, you have to fly to Male from whenever you are, then take a domestic fly... More

We stayed at Six Sense for 5 nights in August 2014. We loved many aspects - the actual resort itself was beautiful and everything had been considered. The staff, led by Marteyne, could not have been friendlier or more helpful. They thought of everything and remembered all of our preferences throughout our stay. The barefoot philosophy made us extremely relaxed... More

The title says it all! This was our 3rd visit to the Maldives - surely not our last! - and we definitely picked a winner this time! Perfect huge lagoon, wonderful over-water villas, nice beaches, very eco friendly, wonderful, tasty organic food - some locally grown - fantastic local people - even women this time around! - and simply GREAT...

Between my partner and I, we have travelled all over America, Caribbean, Amalfi Coast Italy, Greek Islands, Cook Islands and more. But absolutely nowhere compared to this beautiful hotel on this unforgettable island. I couldn't put into words the experience we had. Seven nights was not enough in our beautiful over water bungalow #63 on Jetty C. Which is unusual... More

We went for our honeymoon in 2013 for 7 nights and it was PARADISE!! From the moment we touched down at the airport to departure, the service was flawless. Even the ferry ride to the island was attentive - with fresh watermelon juice or iced homemade herbal tea and a chilled lemongrass infused wet towel to freshen up after a... More

I'm writing this review on my last day of an amazing 9 night stay at Six Senses Laamu. The experience begins at Male Airport where you are met and shown to a nice lounge with drinks/food etc to await your domestic flight here. A scenic short flight (about 35 mins i think) and you arrive at a remove airport to... More

This was our first visit to maldives. We were there on the 1st week of August and spent 4 nights on Laamu water villa and despite the monsoon season we were blessed with great weather to our delight. The place is an absolute paradise for even non-swimmers like us. They place lots of emphasis on preserving nature. The service is... More

I agree with most of the comments. Great water sports and spa, world's best yoga and cooking classes, turtles and dolphins shores, friendly staff, you own your own bikes, incredible rooms and food, service is none-stop with your own butler from arrival to departure, and on top of that, FREE UNLIMITED ICE CREAM! I'm shedding a tear while leaving the... More
