Exceptional in every way

Hong Kong, China

Pictures is supposed to speak a thousand words, but the unique experience my wife and I have during our stay between 17/6 - 22/7 is truly beyond what you can see on pictures. Six Senses Laamu is located on an island that has its own house reef. The lagoon is as calming as an inland lake on a good day (this in itself is already an attraction), and it would be a short 15 mins ride to get to the resort. This is my second time in the Maldives and Six Senses Laamu do really stands out in these few ways: - Location: despite a 35mins domestic flight away its remoteness means you get a natural and unspoiled environment. - Ecology: you can see every effort the team here bring what the Six Senses brand means into life, and you can see their passion exercising this. This helps me learn something new and understand how I can help protecting the environment better. - Marine Life: There is a house reef right beside the main restaurant and bar! The marine life is natural here and there is no evidence that the team is disturbing them here. (On the contrary, some property feed fish or bring in other species and this is just wrong...) As to the experience, service is exceptional in every way. - There is nothing I find to be at fault within the room itself. Shower works, no moulds, etc that you may commonly find in an aged property. There is obvious evidence that my GEM Ali did check the room before I check in. - Housekeeping attention to detail is excellent. E.g., 1. They know which side of the bed you are sleeping in, and bring in the correct size slippers, make your bed, and put my wife and my clothes in exact spots during morning services. 2. On an evening I have accidentally left a microSD card beside the bed side table prior to dinner (a big mistake as they are very small and very difficult to locate). To my surprise, I still find this at the exact same spot after evening turn down service, table cleaned out, with the addition of one cup and bottle of water on the same table! - My GEM Ali has taken care of us over our entire stay, and has gone beyond what this property has to offer. I transit through Singapore and have forgotten to tell my next hotel (Six Senses Maxwell) that I will be arriving early. Ali helped to contact the property and arranged early check in for us - evidenced by a personal note inside my room at Singapore welcoming me and my wife! - The food choices and quality is exceptional, especially for Western and South Asian selections. East Asian food is usually a weak spot for Maldivian property but I find this to be acceptable. - There is always a porter who takes care of you in Male, both arrival and departure. Overall - The Six Senses team do set my bar higher of what it means to stay at a top notch sustainable resort. You just find yourself a loyal customer. Thanks for taking care of us during our stay!

Honeymoon trip

Hong Kong

One of our best trip that we’ve experienced. The staff members are thoughtful and nice. The villas are very private with own pool. We will definitely come back in the future. The only thing that needs to be improved is the food as we come from Hong Kong, the quality is not to up to the standards compares to the food in a five stars hotel in Hong Kong.
