Beyond Compare! 6 +++ Star!

Perth, Australia

Wow Six Senses is definitely 6+++ star! We were so privileged to have been your guests for two weeks. From the start in Male, being met by a Six Senses representative who took care of everything, which was very welcome as we had been traveling for over 15 hours by this stage, to the end of our stay, we could not fault anything, it truly is amazing. The flight to Kadhdhoo was fast and we were honoured to witness a newlywed couple being greeted by the community with singing and dancing. The staff on the boat are fantastic. Especially in helping me to get on / off the boat as I am partially disabled. It was an idyllic 15 minute ride to Laamu. We were provided with the most gorgeous fresh lemonade and coconut. Then the most amazing welcome greeted us on arrival at Six Senses Laamu. The lovely GM Martyne gave us a warm welcome and introduced key staff as well as our GEM Afrah. We were really delighted as in our other stays in the Maldives, we had not experienced before. Then our amazing GEM Afrah brought out a much appreciated wheelchair for me and wheeled me around while he gave us a tour of all the main jetty facilities, restaurants, bar, shop, dive and surf areas and then showed us to our Villa. Along the way he pointed out other facilities like the main pool and Sip Sip, the Spa and Leaf restaurant. Villa 45, Jetty B and second from the end of the jetty was beyond expectations. We could honestly rave about all aspects of the villa, the Perspex under the bath and toilet…watching fish! The view from our bed at sunrise was superb. The vista from the bath and shower just insanely beautiful, our infinity pool and sundeck, even the most minutiae of detail was just wonderful. Thank you to the pool attendants who kept our pool pristine. Our GEM Afrah, what can we say, this lovely man really made our trip. He had things organised before we could even think about asking for them! Always he greeted us with a smile, which seems to be contagious on Laamu…no wonder why! To be on this stunning atoll is a true gift. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay because of the care you took of us, especially in helping me get to places and organising my trike. (I haven’t been able to ride a bike in over 25 years, but you should have seen me on my great deadly treadly) An example of the lengths that staff would go for you is one evening as I was getting ready for dinner, I lost an earring. Ali happened to come in to turn down he bed and asked what I was doing while I was looking for it. He said don’t worry go to dinner and I will look for it. He did that and went to the length of undoing the sink p trap to locate it, which he did and it was there! At all times he ensured our villa was perfectly clean and minibar filled. Thank you Ali! While our GEM Afrah had a well deserved day off, he introduced us to Ari who also looked after us brilliantly. Ari you were so informative and we would have loved to chat to you more. Honestly nothing was too much from either of our GEMS and Ali. For breakfasts we could go to Longitude and be the guests of Kasey, who made sure everything was perfect for us. Some days we would have it in our Villa while in bed or outside on the sunbed while we just gazed at the amazing view. It was so picturesque that it was mesmerising. Thank you Azeem for you innovative table settings on the sunbed and by the foot of the bed.  Also thank you to the other staff who unfortunately I didn’t get your names when you brought breakfast to our Villa. This honestly took breakfast in bed to a whole new level! I loved the herb of the day, where we had a little glass with a herb in and a small description of the herb. Unique and lovely idea. At all times we were served the most beautiful food, with incredible presentation at all restaurants. If you asked which we would rate best across Longitude, Leaf or Chill bar, I honestly could not say. (Unfortunately we didn’t try Zen as the menu wasn’t to our palate, nor did we get to Sip Sip restaurant.) Each restaurant is different however the freshly prepared food was consistently wonderful at all and service beyond our expectations. In Longitude we were well looked after by Kasey, Acton and Ansaar. The Mediterranean and Asian buffets were beautiful as was the ala carte in both Longitude and Chill bar. Chef Upul was very kind to assist me in serving my plate and carrying it to the table for me, as well as making me a mild Sri Lankan curry. (I love curry but since recent chemo and radiotherapy it tends to burn my mouth.) This was beautiful. Leaf restaurant…what can I say this is an exceptional restaurant with a different menu every night. The Chefs are in a slightly sublevel area so you can watch them cook and plate up, as well as chat to them The food could easily drive anyone into to the most amazing food coma it is so incredible! Our host Shiam was wonderful, as were all the hosts and chefs and the lady Maitre’de great. Georgious who presides over the restaurants was a delight to chat to. As was Elvina who makes the most amazing chocolates and explained the process of how they make both the chocolate and ice cream created by Rene. 21 sorbets, 21 ice creams, unlimited, we nearly worked through all of them. One sitting had my husband trying 11 different ones! Seriously so good!!! Chill bar is great to sit back and relax while CJ and his crew bring food to you and your cocktails. Day breaker spritz had me hooked and I am still trying to recreate it at home…CJ how much of what do I need to put in? My hubby loved the sea mule. We sat out on the sunbeds on the deck there and then went snorkelling from the deck over the reef. Great fun! At all times I didn’t have to worry about accessibility (other than there wasn’t a rail into the Sip Sip bar pool.) This would be the only area for improvement. With my husband to help me, we did go in and enjoy a few drinks and chats with Adam and the other staff. I took the opportunity for the back of house tour. Vadi all I can say is I am so impressed with what you have achieved with permaculture and sustainability. It was so well worth doing this tour. Now I bring myself to the most enjoyable part of the stay for me, other than all the other staff, restaurants and facilities…the spa! What an experience, stunning facilities and some of the most talented masseurs I have ever encountered around the world. I spent nearly every second day there for at least one or two hours trying out all the different treatments. Linh, Athira, Chiam you are all so talented and Helen you are brilliant at coordinating the appointments. Honestly this was just the most wonderful aspect of our stay for me. I am sure I fell asleep with each beautiful treatment! I am also enjoying the Subtle Energy products I bought as they are just divine. My husband is an avid surfer and diver. He thoroughly enjoyed the dive and surf trips provided by the dive crew and Ben, Eli and Savif from Tropic Surf. Our other favourite experience was the sunset cruise on the Dhoni with our two sailing masters. Just fantastic to lie back, with champers and nibbles, and sail around the atolls. This was the perfect way to celebrate our tenth anniversary and my cancer free status. Our only disappointment with this incredible experience was it was not long enough! Unfortunately at the end of our stay, due to inclement weather coming in, we had to quickly move to get onto the boat and plane several hours earlier than expected. We understood this was for our safety and liked the fact that Maldivian Air made changes to their schedule to look after passengers. As we had planned to spend these hours to thank a number of people in person, I have tried to do it here. A huge thank you to all staff who made our holiday so special, we do appreciate your fabulous care. We will definitely see you again!
