  • Review by Marianda Maritz from Johannesburg, South Africa

    "From the time we step on the speedboat you experience the excellent service and warm welcome. The staff is immaculate from the waiters and top staff to the ladies raking the sand at the bicycle shed's. There is absolutely nothing I can put my finger on that was wrong. The thought on every detail in rooms and in restaurants with all meals was excellent. Thank you!"

    "We have recently holidayed in Laamu and stayed in one of their luxurious and spacious water bungalows. It is one of the nicest resorts we have stayed at. We have just read a review on TA criticizing the food, but this was not our experience. We found the food, chefs, catering staff all to be exceptional. The produce was extremely fresh and tasty. Our GEM, Auzam was very pleasant and helpful as were all the staff. The Den (Kids Club) staff, particularly, Shelomi & Numa were great with our daughter.There was a small coral reef right outside our water bungalow which was teeming with several varieties of fish. The outdoor seating area and outdoor shower are unique. Glass panels in the toilet floor and glass bath with turquoise sea beneath is surreal. Don't let the longish flight put you off because when you get there, it's absolutely worth it. Six Senses Laamu is a delight! And we can't wait to go back.Stayed September 2012, traveled with family"

    "This is most likely the best place I have ever been to. Even though transport here is a bit complicated (but well organized) it is completely worth it. Six Senses with its award-winning (and deserved) architecture is being quoted all over the internet, especially pictures from this hotel. It is as perfect as it looks. Many people said they get bored in Maldives but not in Six Senses! You can do lots of activities here when you want to but on the other hand you can enjoy as much privacy as you need. Delicious cuisine, outstanding service, astonishing contact with nature (they go all green) makes stay here really unforgettable experience. I could not find a single negative thing what to say since everything went really great. Not to mention spa here, all the procedures were in breathtaking architecture in the nature but still private with trained staff. I just love it!Stayed December 2011, traveled with family"

    "We stayed in an Ocean View water villa on jetty A (#19) which had a beautiful sunrise view and unrestricted views to the horizon. Inside the villa it's all about relaxing, luxury and Eco friendliness. Every day you are provided with fresh fruit and all sorts of lotions to make sure you cool your skin down after the sun. The villa attendants make sure they don't disturb you and at night when they turn down your room you'll find some amazing "bed sheet Art"!As the piers are quiet long the Resort provides you with bicycles (tricycles if you don't know how to ride one) so you can make your way on the Island. Worth mentioning is the cleanliness of the resort. All the paths are swept clean regularly and the public areas look top notch.There are 2 main restaurants on the Resort and both of the Chefs make sure you have a great meal.... Again accompanied by superb service. We went half board (complementary with our Honeymoon booking) so Breakfast and Dinner was included. The variety of food is good and all cooked very fresh. Once a week there is a complementary Beach Party where you get to know the staff and where you can taste some great cocktails. Tip: Get a Laamu Rock, awesome cocktail!For diving there is Ocean Dimensions diving school. Very friendly people willing to support the novice/beginners and making sure every dive is a safe one. The House Reef was ok but when you take a trip on the boat they bring you to nice diving sites.For the excursion bit we went for a pick nick to a private island. The Resort drops you off at a private island and leave you there for 6 hours all by yourself!! They leave you behind with an emergency phone, a great lunch and a cool box with plenty of drinks. Worth the money but make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen (high factor) as the sun will cook you when you're not under the palm trees!I could get on and on about this great resort but just find out yourselves! You won't be disappointed! I want to take this opportunity as well to thank the staff at Six Senses Laamu. You surely contributed to our unforgettable and romantic Honeymoon. You sure know how to create this awesome lifestyle called: Slowlife!Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple"
