First let me say I would not over exaggerate or try to demean any property as I love trip advisor and know many business owners who thrive on reviews...as you can see from my profile most of my reviews are always positive, but I am afraid here I need to inform people about this property. We came here for our... More

I'm not a believer in anything being perfect because we should all strive to do better and after our first visit in 2012 we went back in August 2014 because it was the closest thing to perfection I have ever witnessed and experienced. However, I was wrong and glad we went back because it WAS better. The staff, in particular... More

Stunning location. Beautiful rooms with attention to detail. This is a fantastic place for relaxation. Food is excellent but expensive so make sure your budget is prepared. Most activities also cost extra. We were in a room on the jetty farthest from the main facilities and enjoyed the bicycle rides daily so if that's not you, request closer accommodation. Had... More

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
