If we had to sum up Six Senses Laamu in just a few words we’d pick ‘sustainability, wellness and paradise’. That’s pretty much what you can expect when you check-in, proving that your vegan luxury holiday doesn’t need to have a cost to your health or the planet.
Book a stay, embrace their mission to help you ‘reconnect with yourself, others and the world around you’ and return home from your trip a happier and healthier person.
Too good to be true?
Here’s how it works…you’ll need to take an international flight to Malé, hop on a short domestic flight to Kadhdhoo followed by a trip on the Six Senses’ luxury speedboat to complete your journey to the resort in the beautiful Laamu atoll.
But don’t worry about the travel delaying the start of your enjoyment; getting into the spirit of unwinding begins on the boat where you are invited to remove your shoes (for the duration of your stay if you choose) and the staff will offer you fresh coconut slithers served in tiny coconut shells, washed down with lime juice (complete with recyclable paper straw). Your laid back luxury experience will already have begun by the time you arrive to check-in.
The resort itself is divided into two areas, the ‘over-water’ side that is, as the name suggests, built entirely over the blue, blue sea and the ‘on-land’ side which is set in tropical foliage, with an endless white sand beach to keep you dazzled. It’s blissfully peaceful, there’s awe-inspiring ocean views everywhere and plenty of places to sit back and drink it all in. Who wouldn’t fall in love with that?
Our ‘Ocean Beach Villa with Pool’ was also split into different areas. The main sleeping area was complete with comfy bed draped in a dreamy tropical mesh (which helps keep the mosquitos out but also have the effect of feeling like you’re sleeping in a romantic four-poster bed), TV, desk, toilet and double sinks housed in quirky ‘suitcases’ to keep the travel theme going. Then there was an upstairs seating and lounging area (reached by climbing a wooden staircase outside). Finally there was the outdoor bath and shower area, with not one but two outdoor showers surrounded by nature, sky and plants. Plus there was a huge bath, just incase you want to contemplate life surrounded by bubbles. Outside we had a private pool and more comfy places to sit plus a pathway to our own sun loungers on the beach.
The design of our villa, like the rest of the resort, invoked feelings of being on a tropical island retreat; most things are made from a natural, tactile wood, there’s splashes of colour with fabric but mainly things are neutral and calming.
