Six Senses Laamu is an exclusive luxury resort located in the picturesque Laamu Atoll, after which it’s named. In fact, it’s the only resort in the whole atoll. This highly eco-friendly and sustainable property is one of the Maldives’ newest offerings and is contemporary in pretty much every aspect. To reach the resort, guests undertake a short seaplane ride from Male, followed by a short boat journey.

When it comes to deciding on accommodation, there are a total of 10 options to choose from. There are villas set within the island’s tropical forest, as well as some dotted along the beachfront and others perched over the lagoon’s crystal-clear blue waters. All are stylish and sophisticated, yet comfortable at the same time. Space is plentiful, as are amenities, with all villas providing the full range of creature comforts. Some of the amenities common to all types of accommodation include air conditioning, a private open-air bathtub and separate shower, a 37-inch flat-screen TV with a range of satellite channels and tea and coffee making facilities.

The resort offers a broad range of dining experiences, with a total of six places to eat and drink, most of which are set over the water. Zen offers delectable Japanese dishes that are prepared out in the open, while Longitude is an over-the-water restaurant set over two floors, with a menu featuring international cuisine and lots of Asian classics. The resort’s signature restaurant is Leaf, where imaginative meals are freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients. Sip Sip serves poolside drinks and light snacks, while the Chill Bar is the place to relax and enjoy the sunset. Finally there’s Ice & Chocolate Studio, offering over 40 ice-cream flavours and a great selection of chocolates.

The beachside spa boasts superb ocean views and is ideal for those looking to unwind - there are even treatments designed especially for families. Diving opportunities are plentiful, with many top dive sites in the vicinity, and other water-based activities such as windsurfing, wakeboarding and surfing are on offer. There are also many excursions further afield so that visitors can discover more of Laamu Atoll.

Children are very welcome to stay at the resort and they’re certainly well catered for. The kids club is open to children aged 3-12 and offers a range of fun, stimulating activities, from sand art and face painting, to hide and seek and pasta art. A good number of facilities are available for younger ones throughout the resort, such as a jungle cinema, a ping pong table and bikes available to borrow. Babysitting is available with a day’s notice, although note that there is an additional charge for this service. Parents are reminded to ensure that children are kept under adult supervision at all times.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
