You can spy on darting fish from your glass-bottomed bath tub and watch movies in the jungle. . You can surf Ying Yangs just a short boat ride away and get the wave of your life with turtles popping up next to you. But wait there is more... If that's not enough, they have FREE ice-cream from the parlour, all... More

Both my wife and I had a wonderful one week stay at the Six Senses Laamu - Maldives. The resort was superbly marvelous, and accolades should go to the management and team there for keeping this resort one of the best jewels in Maldives. What makes it all so special are the committed staff there that were always going out... More

We've spent the last 4 summers in Barbados and we knew that we needed to dip our toes in different water. The big problem was that Barbados has got lovely people, beautiful scenery, great food and the standard of accommodation was incredible. Our excellent travel agents, Angelfish, therefore had a very tough act to follow. We wanted great snorkeling, great... More

I stayed here with my new boyfriend. We had a water villa and it was absolutely spectacular. The villa itself was incredible - clean, well equipped, stunning location. The resort was beautiful, our guest experience maker was brilliant. We did have dietary issues, the executive chef seemed to misunderstand vegan vs vegetarian but other than that, our holiday was perfect.... More

This is a wonderful place, great beaches, fantastic service and overall a top top resort. We went for 10 days i february (2 adults and a baby), and stayed in one of the beach villas. I can recomend beach villas because of their secluded location and private beaches. Traveling with a 10 month old baby this was the perfect solution... More

My Bride (of 20 years) and I spent a week at Six Senses Laamu, and found the location to be surreal if not initially overwhelming. But the real difference for us was the staff, particularly the wait staff at Longitude Restaurant. They made us feel as though we were their only focus. Quietly spoken, gentle natured staff really suited us... More

This was our 2nd Maldives holiday and we had done quite a lot of research with the help of the ever patient Jo at Maldives Direct (also now known as Angelfish Travel) to make sure that we chose an island that would suit us. Well - what can I say - it really couldn't have been more perfect. The transfer... More
