The Maldives - one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world. If you also want to stay in a special resort there, Six Senses Laamu is the right place for you. Because it is contemporary and relaxed luxury. Because you don't need shoes, because the service is top notch and simply everything is beautiful, no matter where you look. The Six Senses concept is one of the most modern concepts the hotel market currently offers and has no problem competing with the older and bigger brands like Four Seasons etc. Those who have been here once know what the somewhat long journey is worthwhile for. Pro _ Beautiful water bungalows with large outdoor pool and outdoor shower and a great terrace _ Almost all restaurants built over the water, with unique architecture and a very relaxed holiday atmosphere _ Barefoot throughout and contemporary luxury without dress code _ Phenomenal beach with the clearest water at all and many fish, no algae (paradisiacal and in this beauty probably worldwide unique). _ Excellent and healthy food on a high level a la carte and with fabulous theme buffets _ Consistently friendly and very personal 5-star service _ Great support by our GEM. Thanks to Nasru for the care during our holiday _ Great kids club with a lot of different offers (e.g. preparing organic salads by yourself instead of Playstation), Thank you very much for the great care in the kids club. _ Nice pool area with many sunbeds and a beautiful bar at the pool with delicious pizzas _ Wide range of water sports and other activities, including surfing _ Bicycles which may also be used on the water jetties and which are checked continuously _ Sustainability concept _ Perfect room service with a fine sense of timing _ Stunning sunsets _ Dolphins to be seen from the beach _ Sandbank with special events _ Comfortable size of the resort _ Good and immediately available doctor on site _ Fantastic facility on the island _ Tree house restaurant Leaf with suspension bridge and open air kitchen with very good food _ Nice bar on the beach in the evening with delicious cocktails as a sundowner _ Ice cream parlour with ice cream for free _ Own chocolaterie _ Daily changing offer with meditations and Yoga and all other activities Con _ Even more consistent with the Six Senses concept would be fresh juices and healthy food at the kids club instead of Sprite, Fanta, sandwiches and co (but anyway thanks for the free offer) _ New Years Countdown concept more consistent with the Six Senses concept: more atmosphere instead of party disco _ Maldives-typical 5-star service charges very high, plan enough _ Tennis court would be nice Hints _ Room on the water _ Football pitch in the staff village _ Trip to Picnic Island (lonely dream island) _ Sunset boat trip with dolphin watching _ Getting all your laundry washed on the last day for 45 dollars: great idea! Rating 10 of 10 1 = no way 2 = rather not 3 = if it's absolutely necessary 4 = you can do it, but you don't have to do it 5 = is fine, but no highlight 6 = one you can make 7 = is good 8 = beautiful hotel 9 = wonderful, do it! 10 = top, definitely do it!
