Amazing 10th Anniversary Trip

What an amazing experience our family had this past August, staying at Six Senses Laamu! We stayed at an over-water villa on the last jetty (Jetty C), and were amazed at the amount of amenities, truly genuine staff, and all the amazing bits of nature we were able to experience for our week stay! There was always something to do, even if it was just relaxing pool/beachside! We took our 7-year old daughter Addison, with us, and she absolutely adored Kid's Club, and all the staff: Lala and Jovie! Every hour in Kids Club featured a new/different activity, and 95% of the activities were free of additional cost! Our daughter enjoyed fishing, exploring the neighboring island, making crafts, henna, and cooking! She also was able to attend 12 kids movie nights/kid buffets and we were able to have 2 dinners all to ourselves! For myself, I was in constant amazement at the experiences we had on the island. My daughter and I went snorkeling on the first morning of our stay with a marine biologist, and saw two types of turtles, a porcupine ray, and an abundance of tropical fish, all swimming within feet of us! Later on our trip, we signed up for a turtle hatching watch, and by a stroke of luck, they were hatched during the day, and released near dusk! Later in our trip, we chartered a private boat ride for 2 hours, and were able to see a large pod of dolphins swimming alongside us before snorkeling in the reef out past the island! As a final stroke of luck, as we were leaving, we saw a manta ray swimming out under our villa, heading out to sea! Additionally, my daughter and I took a beginner's surfing lesson, and it fostered an immediate love of surfing for my daughter! I had a great time as well and felt fairly confident after the 1.5 hr lesson! Our only regret is that we scheduled the lesson for the day we left! I wish we could've booked additional lessons! Kudos to the staff of Tropic Surf (Justin and Francois)! They were amazingly patient and upbeat, quelling all my 7-yr olds fears and giving her the confidence to ride some waves! Staff-wise, we greatly enjoyed talking and getting to know several of the employees of Six Senses Laamu. To CJ, the bar manager -- it was a pleasure getting to know you, and all three of us greatly enjoyed talking with you every day! Thank you for not only providing great service, but also companionship on the island! To Fareed -- thank you for taking us out to snorkel on our private boat ride! That was our first interaction, but you were beyond memorable and genuine! Thank you for staying with all of us at the airport when there were weather delays! Wishing you all the best! To KC, our favorite breakfast server -- you brought a smile to us every morning! We hope you are well! To Ali, a marine biologist intern -- you were so knowledgable and helpful when snorkeling, and in passing when we would see you! Thanks for helping Addison feel safe in the water by allowing her to tow on your buoy, and also for continually helping her with her goggles (and recommending a smaller pair)! You helped her gain her snorkeling confidence! Thank you Alex, for taking us on a tour of Maamendhoo and giving us so much information and exposure to the native culture of the Maldives! We appreciated seeing the neighboring island, meeting its residents, and seeing the buildings and gardens! Thank you Hemanth for a great (accidentally 1:1) tabata workout! Last, but not least, thank you Najah, our GEM (guest experience maker), who went above and beyond every day to help us plan reservations, give us updates, and make our stay as seamless as possible! For those staff members I did not catch the names of, thank you to the ice cream hostess! You were so patient and caring even on busy times! Also thank you to the server in the Chill bar area that made our daughter smile by making Donald Duck impressions every time we visited! You brought us the joy of laughter! We are blissfully dreaming of the next time we can stay at Six Senses!

Difficult To Perfectly Describe This Beautiful Place, Hotel & Staff

This is a very beautiful property. The entire main hotel is built over water and a submerged reef. There are land villas and 3 jetties with over water villas. The hotel and jetties all connect to an island where there is spa/gym, vegetable gardens, restaurants, pool area with beautiful beach, fresh juice wellness area. Everyone gets a bike with your initials to ride around the island. There are over 5 restaurants on the property where you can have very different food each night. For a hotel that needs to import a lot of food you won;t feel that at all as the chefs are meticulous about their food preparation and choices. Beach barbeque is very well done in a near perfect setting. One of the hotel signatures is free ice cream any time with some really crazy number of flavors of sorbets and ice cream. Hotel also makes its own chocolate which you can view from the ice cream area. As soon as you come off the boat you are assigned a GEM (guest experience manager) which is extremely well organized. The GEM will take care of everything - your dinner reservations, activities bookings, food issues if any, room concerns, check-in to see how you're doing...you name it your GEM will take care of it. Our GEM even took our 9 year old out to play soccer on the employee turf field! This really works well as you won't really find yourself spending time doing a lot of these types of things that you would at a more regular hotel experience. We stayed in a sunset water villa which looked out to to ocean. The villas are luxurious with huge open decks and seating areas, open showers where you see ocean running below you as you bathe, toilets have screens built into the floor so you can see fish below as you go about your business. Water villas also have a viewing outpost upstairs at roof level where you can get a fantastic view of the water. Slipping into the water from your villa is a truly amazing experience. The rooms are on a shallow reef that drops off precipitously about 20-25 feet out so you can snorkel right out of your room and see this amazing healthy reef with an insane amount of underwater life. It is quite normal to see an eagle ray swimming around, reef sharks (harmless), sea turtles and every kind of fish imaginable right outside your villa. One thing that you will notice is how clear the water is in that wherever you are whether in the water or out so you see the reef floor clearly. The ocean is actually amazingly cool and the hotel also keeps the pool cool which is really great on the hotter days. One thing to ask the hotel when booking a over water villa is whether it faces other over water villas or the open ocean. There are lots of activities. We took a fishing trip and the hotel then prepped the fish that we caught for a truly memorable meal. A family yoga session was a very fun time despite the intense workout. We took a "back-of-the house" tour that was interesting to see as to how the hotel runs the entire island with an eye towards being environmentally friendly. The hotel also fogs the island so there are literally no mosquitoes!! You can leave all your villa sliding doors open and no issue at all. Big kudos to the staff in going out of their way always to ensure we had a great time! We also had to change our plans due to some unexpected work travel and the hotel graciously worked with us and honored our original booking with no additional penalties. We are truly grateful to Graeme, Mina, Aslah, Lira, Adam, Vadi, Hemant and many, many others for making our stay so special.
