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!

Returned back home after a long holiday. Felt like it was a must to write a review about this beautiful place. Everything was well organized from the time you step into Male' airport. Six senses laamu representative arranged everything for us to make our trip between Male' airport & the resort as smooth as possible. From the moment we arrived to the island, it was like a paradise..We stayed in a sunset laamu water villa which was heaven on earth. We were able to step into the sea from the steps on the side of the vill deck. Our Gem Aslah was very attentive & could not have done more for us. Just ask him & he would immediately get things done. The foods we had in all the restaurants were some of the best foods we had. All the staffs we encountered were very friendly & supportive. Out 11 year daughter enjoyed the place a lot & it was definitely a dream come true. Thank you six senses laamu for making our holiday such an unforgettable memory.

My husband and I went to Six Senses as part of our honeymoon and we were blown away by how beautiful the place was. Our villa was stunning and the common areas (swimming pool/restaurants/bars) were all so well done. The service was amazing and the food to die for (we particularly loved the themed buffet dinners and the free ice cream!). Special thanks to all the staff who made us feel at home and particularly to our dedicated captain Stephany who was always available for us and made sure we had everything we needed - thank you so much!!

My wife and I stayed at Six Senses for her birthday and I can hands down say it’s the best place we have ever stayed. The island was simply stunning, the rooms were incredible and the staff were super friendly and welcoming. To top it off the food and drink was exquisite and I will definitely be visiting again in the future. I would like to make a special mention to Ashraq. He was always on hand to answer our questions and help in anyway possible through the WhatsApp group and really went above and beyond. He elevated our excitement and provided excellent recommendations what to eat and do during our visit.

The beauty of the place & the island is a thing of imagination. The staffs are all very friendly & helpful. We had a fantastic service from our very attentive butler Aslah. Nothing was too much for him. He went out his way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It was wonderful to have many dining options every night. Food was top notch in every restaurant with many choices. The spa was amazing. The therapists were amazing & the treatments were magical. We love cycling everywhere & it felt so very safe & relaxed. All in all a very fantastic stay!

This place is so unique and offers sooo much. It’s a true culinary experience, like the food you are served is unreal. We couldn’t believe the presentation!! There is so much to do here from diving, surfing, or simply snorkeling the amazing house reef, swimming, the fun pool, jet ski, kayak, SUP, or simply walk the beach and look for shells. There are sand sharks right in the shoreline!!! Hermit crabs in abundance. Rays, dolphins are a common sight as you enjoy a meal overlooking the water. You bike everywhere which is so fun. The villa is spacious and the bathroom is so unique and fun. Outdoor rain shower, glass tub that looks down onto the ocean, a huge deck you can jump right into the ocean from. The list goes on and on! We ordered breakfast one morning to our villa and it was unreal the spread they brought. There’s a restaurant you get to walk across a suspension bridge to get to. A Japanese fine dining restaurant. And a buffet that will blow your mind. They make pasta right in front of you. Donuts too. Crepes! Shihan was our wonderful room attendant (they call them Gems), and he was amazing. Truly went above and beyond to meet our every request. You see management around all the time ensuring everyone’s happiness and just assisting in every way. The pool and restaurant there are incredible. There’s even free ice cream!! Yes, FREE!! 48 flavors to choose from!! The dive team and the surf guides are wonderful. The house reef is a treasure. I can’t say enough good things. We can’t wait to come back!!

Spent one week with my family in this amazing resort. Exceptional in every aspect, the beautiful villas, delicious food & impeccable service. The highlight for us was the butler service, which made our stay worry less. Our Gem Aslah kindly assisted us in everything during our stay in the resort. From making the bookings & experiences, to clear our doubts about the hotel & giving lots of information about the local islands he was very reliable. He also gave us lots of information about the Mantas & turtle activities happening in the island been very patient with us. I would like to express my gratitude for all the precious memories & highly recommend six senses laamu if someone travels to the Maldives.

A long awaited trip to this special place did not disappoint. It's a fair way to go; big plane to Malé, then a wait for the 35 minute flight to Laamu’s Kadhdhoo Airport, then the boat to the resort island itself. But it's worth it. We stayed in a Sunset Laamu Water Villa which was located on Jetty A, so nice and close to the Main Jetty. You have bikes to get around and we used these all the time. You can cycle around the island in about 15 minutes. The snorkelling is better from other Jetties, but the sunsets were spectacular. You can read all about how wonderful staying at Six Senses Laamu is from the other reviews on here and I would agree with many of them. Our standout highlights were watching the turtles hatching at night and snorkelling with turtles during the day. We made use of the organised snorkel trips but also snorkelled on our own every day. Without doubt, this is one of the best places to see sea life, especially when you reach the edge of the reef, which can be surprisingly close. We really enjoyed the beach and the Sip Sip beach restaurant for casual lunches, whilst Leaf supplied superb evening meals and the sunset table is a must. Wine is crazy expensive, whilst the food, generally, is also pricey, so if you can get a deal on a meal plan, I would advise that. Set meals are generally $120 a head plus 22%, so close on $300 plus drinks for dinner for two at any of the main restaurants. There are other evening options at the Chill Bar where you can have just one course, which we did on quite a few occasions. Breakfast is excellent and the service is top drawer. The Ice Cream parlour was our often used end of day treat as we wandered back to our villa to look forward to another day of bliss.
