Absolutely Faultless Stay

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

This was our thrid visit to the Maldives so our expectations were already very high...but...wow...this place is truly exceptional in every single way. The service from all of the staff is at the highest level without being stuffy or in your face. Your personal GEM is your main point of contact and can organise anything for you with a single phone call. The food is usually a highlight of any Maldives trip and this was no exception. There are plenty of options on the standard menu although we are vegan so the choices are quite limited. However, you can ask for anything and the chefs will happily make it for you so they are very accommodating. There's a free ice cream bar where you can get a home made sorbet or ice cream as often as you like. Loads of flavours to choose from and our kids would have LOVED this! We also qualified for breakfast delivered to our villa every day and it was lovely to sit out on the back deck with our private breakfast. It was always delivered quite promptly and the menu is very extensive. There are several restaurants to choose from and the highlight was eating at Leaf where the food was absolutely amazing. The chef came to our table to discuss our dietary requirements and we gave him free rein to surprise us with a custom vegan feast. Wow. What an exceptional meal in a beautiful leafy setting overlooking the beach. We went back for a second night during our stay and he created another custom vegan meal for us that was just as stunning as the first. We've been to plenty of fine dining restaurants and these meals are up there with the best. We were travelling for my wife's 50th birthday so booked the private sandbank dinner on her birthday. What a truly amazing experience. It's a 5 minute speedboat ride to the sandbank where they setup a beautfiful candlelit dinner on a sandbank in the middle of the ocean. The chef cooked up a delicious custom vegan menu for us with so much food that we were completely stuffed at the end. We were lucky to have the full moon rise as the meal was being prepared so the whole experience was absolutely magical and something we will remember for the rest of our lives. We stayed in a Sunset water villa with a private pool that is located right at the end of the Jetty. The villa was amazing with uninterrupted views out over the ocean and views of the sunrise and sunset. Plenty of areas to relax in the sun or shade and then jump off the deck into the warm ocean for a swim or a snorkel. Lots of privacy too, especially being at the end of the jetty. There's a lovely outdoor shower and all the doors and windows open up which creates a very open and spacious feeling. We didn't use the pool because there was way too much chlorine and preferred to just jump into the sea. We really loved having bikes to get around the island and enjoyed our slow peddles along the jetty to and from dinner. The snorkling was pretty good although not the best of reefs that we have been on. There isn't much directly around the villa but if you swim out a bit you see more fish, turtles, rays, sea cucumbers, and the occasional reef shark. We were originally booked for 12 nights but were staying at the resort as the COVD-19 crisis was developing so made a decision to cut our trip short after 8 nights as airlines were closing down their services and we didn't want to get stranded. The resort handled this extremely well and fully refunded our remaining nights, which is a truly amazing gesture. We usually like to try new places every time we travel but I would find it very hard not to return to the Six Senses resort in the Maldives because I just can't imagine that anywhere could be better than this.

no details left unturned

My husband and I honeymooned here February 2020, and absolutely loved everything about the resort! Our over water villa was beautiful, comfortable, and private. The snorkeling and scuba diving was wonderful, the staff was attentive, and the food was delicious. There were plenty of activities to keep you entertained, although relaxing at the villa was equally as nice. Our GEM (guest experience manager), Afra, checked in with us daily to make sure all was going well, and helped make and change reservations as needed. Speaking of reservations, don't miss having dinner at Leaf. Yum! We stayed in villa 5, a sunset view villa on Jetty A. We had originally requested a villa further down the jetty, thinking we'd have more privacy further down the jetty, and less noise from the restaurants. When we arrived, villa 5 was the only one of our room type available, but they offered to move us further down the following night. We ended up deciding to stay in 5, as you really couldn't hear any noise from the common areas, and we had an ideal view of the sunset, which would have been more limited after the curve of the jetty. We never felt like we were sacrificing privacy, and would be happy to stay in the same villa again. Each guest gets a bike to get around the island, with covers for the pedals, since the island is shoes optional! We know there were a lot of guests at the resort based on how many bikes were parked, but we never felt like we saw that many people, as there are so many dining options and experience options. Every detail is thought of in advance, and we were well taken care of! We'd highly recommend staying here!
