Hotel's Favorite
An absolutely amazing holiday! This place is phenomenal. Beauty at its finest at any hour of the day. It is a blissful paradise. The resort and their staff are kind, warming and friendly. Our GEM went above and beyond in hospitality. Abdullah was open, friendly, approachable and made our stay at six senses feel like we were at home but in 7* luxury. Small touches and requests made during the stay were an additional special touch , particularly as we were on our honeymoon. The food is out of the world. We requested some special dishes as we were missing Indian cuisine. Their talented chefs satisfied that craving, with a variety of dishes at a lunch for us. The restaurants offered a la carte dishes, as well as the main restaurant having tasty dishes based on a themed cuisine nights. Restaurants adapted their menu (organised via our GEM) to help meet our dietary requirement. We cannot forgot the endless gelato flavours at the ice cream parlour, available at most hours of the day during our stay. The MUI team at Six Senses Laamu opened ours eyes to the breathtaking marine life and coral around the island. Their professional team put me to ease, as I am not a comfortable swimmer when snorkelling and I was able to witnessing beauty under the sea that is beyond description by words and one has to see and experience for themselves once in a lifetime. We also loved six sense - bare feet experience and cycling around the island with our personalised cycles. This trip has definitely made us want to visit the Maldives again and we will be back!

We spent the end of the honeymoon at the six sense lamuu hotel and it has been a wonderful experience. The incredible hotel, the super attentive staff and there is a calm all the time, perfect for resting body and mind. Marvelous! We can't make any negative comments, since everything has been perfect. We carry out diving and fishing activity, and both are highly recommended.

It was the best experience in my life! I chose the resort very carefully, it was important to be far from Male (so that there was no reminder of civilization around), the live reef, delicious food, a good spa, the abundance of water and beach villas and big green island. Based on these criteria, I chose Six Senses Laamu and I’m very pleased with the choice. We spent 5 days at the Laamu water villa and 5 days at the ocean beach villa. Both are amazing, worth a try, but be sure to grab one of the laamu to add more privacy and deep enough ocean for swimming. Beach villas provide ultimate privacy and vast grounds! Both villas have absolutely everything you need and much more, even their own music for meditation and incense.. Food at the hotel is a separate part of the pleasure. Breakfast is very varied, healthy and everything is super fresh, I’m a honey junkey so they have lots of flavours I can’t count them all. We spent almost all of our lunches at the chill bar, we shared dinners evenly with zen and leaf, haute cuisine, bravo to the chefs! The service at the hotel is the best I have ever seen considering how sincere and inspired the staff is from the housekeeper to the top management to make guests feel at home. In the end, we felt at home!) Our guest experience maker Ainura is an amazing professional, she created an absolutely magical atmosphere, for the first time I didn’t think about anything on vacation, everything was very well organized. Amazing delicacy, empathy, a very personalised approach and high professionalism of Ainura plunged us into a state of absolute serenity. The house reef of the hotel is quite rich and very well maintained, we swam a lot with sharks, rays and turtles️ Complementary ice cream with 48 flavors will be offered to you by charming Abby, who always knows how to surprise you) The island itself is picturesque, with beautiful sand, dense jungle and incredibly clear turquoise ocean water, just wow! Spa treatments are nice, try treatments with Bo and Pema. The eco-chic style and barefoot lifestyle seem to me ideal for a holiday in the Maldives and complete unity with nature, this is how it should be on the island. Bravo to the management team, you managed to create an amazing team that creates a fairy tale for guests and a great desire to return. Thank you!

My hubby and I have spent 5 days in Six Senses Laamu to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The surroundings, the villa, the food and the people are really amazing. As we visited Maldives during the monsoon season, we kind of mentally prepared that it may rain most of the time. But fortunately, we did enjoy 3 sunny days though. Lucky us :) As the resort is built around the nature, it really gives me a very relaxing and healing senses when staying there. The water around is crystal clear. The moment you just step out of the villa and immerge yourself into the water with the snorkeling gear, you can already see the beautiful corals, seagrass, marine animals down under. Thanks to our "Guest Experience Maker" Ashraq, he did a great deal to make our trip worry-free. With his arrangement, we need not worry where and what to eat, but be ascertain that the food will be superb. Whenever there are some activities which we want to join, he will always be available to help to make it happens. I will also want to extend my appreciation to the housekeeping team in Six Senses, especially Mohamed Ibrahim (a.k.q Bondas) who help to cleaned our villa twice a day. The room always looked clean and fresh everyday. Thanks Six Sense for the happy memory that will last forever.

When my wife and I decided to come to Maldives for holiday, we have taken some time to choose which resort to stay with by watching YouTubes and looking others' reviews. After a tough selection, we finally decided to come to Six Senses to to celebrate our anniversary. Believe it or not, I would say the surroundings and experiences are much better than what seen on YouTubes. The resort itself is not only surrounded by nature but merged itself into it. The island, the restaurants, the villa and even the pathways are all surrounded by green bluish water. Not sure if we were lucky, we had encountered the eagle rays twice and a baby shark when walking on the path along the shore. The water villa we stayed is another highlight. I really love that almost everything in the villa is made of wood. It makes me feel so refresh and comfortable in there. The shower platform is my most favorite room in the villa. It is outdoor and just on top of the sea, you feel like you are taking a shower in the nature. I would like to specially thank our guest experience maker Ashraq. Our holiday will not be better without him. He is very helpful and seems able to fulfil every requests we asked for. I am very impressed that he had arranged all our dining venues during our stay, so that we could try different sort of cuisines on different days. While we want to join the Sunset Dolphin Cruise the last minute, he was able to make it happens as well. I would also want to thank our housekeeper Mohamed Ibrahim who helped to cleaned our room twice a day. Our villa was always clean and tidy throughout our stay. Last but not least, thanks to all the staffs and even the other guests we met. You are all friendly. This holiday in Six Senses, like what other reviewers mentioned, it is undoubtedly "exceeding all expectations"!

Our stay at six senses was amazing! We saw so much aquatic life in the surrounding reef and the service by our "guest experience manager", Shah was unparalleled. Shah was always willing to do everything possible to make our stay more comfortable and even helped us do a photoshoot for my wife's instagram! Thank you, Shah! And thanks to everyone at Six Senses :) Also, Shah is a master henna tattoo artist and is happy to give you a henna tattoo! I got a mantaray!

Wow... where to begin! We chose to spend our honeymoon at Six Senses Laamu because of their commitment to the environment and their sustainable practices. This hotel is a true eco-paradise. We spent our days surrounded by the stunning ocean, beautiful nature and vibrant wildlife. The very first night we got there, we saw 3 eagle rays swimming beneath us at the restaurant. I really enjoyed the fact that they organize environmental talks almost every night. I learned a lot about sharks, manta rays and the importance of coral during those wonderful chats provided by the hotel's amazing team of marine biologists. Our GEM, Shah, was just incredible! He made our trip 1000x better. He was always looking out for us, making sure we had everything we needed and lighting up our day with a smile. Shah's the best!!!!! We also enjoyed the free ice cream very much. We tried all 48 flavors and loved chatting with Abi while we enjoyed our bowl of ice cream. She's a wonderful person and we'll never forget her. Our honeymoon was perfect. A dream come true and we can't wait to go back!

Having stayed at Six Senses, Laamu last year we were keen to return, and the property again exceeded all our expectations. I love the Robinson Crusoe style, which the resort does with effortless ease. Reclaimed wood, thatched roofs, no shoes, this is eco-relaxing at its most refined. However, it is the service that really stands out, with a special mention for Ainura who, as last year, made our stay seemlessly enjoyable. Note that there is some construction/upgrades going on, but disturbances are keep to the absolute minimum and we look forward to visiting the new eco centre and observatory next year. Supper at Leaf was the standout meal this time - make sure you go for the local fish.
