In August 2014, my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at this fabulous resort. We have spent many years travelling to various five star accommodation around the world and have to say that this is definitely in our top 5 and would have to be my favourite beach resort. Our GEM, Irene, was fantastic as were all the... More

My wife and I spent 14 glorious days at the Six Senses Laamu and we had the most wonderful time. Everything about the resort demonstrates their care and dedication to excellence. Despite being a secluded island you always feel there is something to do and even if the weather doesn't always play fair the team at the hotel go above... More

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.

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.

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

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
