Exquisite, idyllic and luxurious, you have arrived at the exclusive resort of Six Senses Laamu.
Six Senses Laamu is on an idyllic island in the more remote (and less developed) southern reaches of the immense archipelago that makes up the Maldives. It is the perfect desert island destination with everything including three restaurants, several bars and the most exquisite villas all built on stilts above the mesmerisingly distinct Turquoise coloured sea.
Six Senses has always been a unique departure in terms of escape destinations but here in the Maldives, they managed to perfect the art of being different. And they have done so with amazing style. From the silvery grey timber decks to the thatched roofs to the laid-back chic of the ubiquitous massive cushions that constitute most of the furniture, this place has perfected the art of chilling. It just may be the best example of barefoot luxury in the world.
There is a choice between beach villas and water villas. Both are how I would build my own hut in Paradise - a seductive combination of bleached timber, rattan, rush and thatch combined with a bohemian twist such as the wash basins that fold away in trunks behind the bed that recall the style of Safari in the "thirties". Most importantly they are private and spacious and so well designed that you totally at home the minute you settle in.
Variety and experience are the key-words to dining here. There's "into the sea", a restaurant perched on the end of a jetty with spotlights that light up the coral and exotic fish as seen through glass floors and tables. There's also a restaurant on the beach, next to the kitchen garden called Leaf - a reference to the extraordinary rocket salad grown right here.
There are several bars dotted around the island but the most interesting one on the main jetty, entirely constructed of a multitude of layers of green glass.
