I wrote how my honeymoon in Maldives journey started about 2 years ago in my previous post. This time I want to write about our magnificent stay in Six Senses Laamu.
As I mentioned in previous post, We heard about Six Senses from our friends. They were crazy about this place especially about hotel’s barefoot policy and sustainable structure. Everything you do in this stay about being natural and turning to earth. Six Senses Laamu has one of the best ecotourism experience. I love this hotel so bad so I started to check where else they have resorts.
Please click + on top of Fatih to see my polka dot strapless dress’ details. I found a very similar one from Alice and Olivia.
We started our journey with a fresh homemade lemonade in our boat to resort. The crew was amazingly friendly. I don’t think anything make you angry, annoyed or sad during your whole stay. Everybody was super cool, fun, they are always there for you whatever you need. After our little boat ride, hotel manager and some other signature (like sustainability manager) crew welcomed us in the deck. They kindly suggested us not to use technology (phone) as much as possible to get whole natural experience and not use our shoes. The hotel ground is regularly checked if there are any dangerous bugs or insects. So you can definitely feel safe about being barefoot. Fatih and I throw our shoes right away. After this small talk our GEM (Auxem Adam) showed us around real quick.
Every guest has a GEM known as Guest Experience Maker and your GEM is responsible for every single detail in your stay. He makes all the appointments to SPAs and reservations to restaurant for you. He meets you every morning during the breakfast to tell you about that day’s specials and comes with different experience suggestions. Basically you don’t have to think about anything other than how to relax for the whole stay.
We had this gorgeous water bungalow. We had a hammock, breakfast and dinner table, divan, 2 sunbeds, open space bathtub and open space shower, private pool in our bungalow. We had also 2 bicycles with our name tags, which was super cute! You can go everywhere with these bicycles, to the Sip Sip Bar, Organic Spice Garden, Spa, Main Restaurant and Lounge area etc.
Because of our stay reason was our Honeymoon, we had a couple of specials from the resort. They sent us a champagne, a honeymoon cake, one complimentary dinner and couples SPA massage. We also had free yoga class. Yoga that I did in Laamu was one of the most memorable ones.
One of the other favorite thing in Six Senses Laamu was the breakfast. It was probably the best breakfast I’ve ever have in my entire 5-star hotel experiences. I think they designed the entire menu according to detoxing. It is one of the other thing about honeymoon in Maldives, you clear your mind and body as much as possible during your stay.
If you are curious about our package, It was bed and breakfast. We had to pay for all the other stuff. Another frequently asked question is which season is the best season for Maldives. We went to Maldives in December. We stayed there for 6 days 5 nights in between December 10th to December 17th. Just 2 days before there was a storm. It is little bit luck if you have a storm or not. Check with the hotel about Munson season. I guarantee you it is going to be expensive but the rain situation is not bad at all. It is raining like 30 min then It is all sun again. I am going to share you some looks I’ve been in the next posts. I can’t resist and pick too many photos so I decided to share my looks in different posts.
I know it is expensive but honeymoon in Maldives is one of the best things I’ve ever decided!!
Many people asked about this one piece swimsuit. The brand is Pepper Jacques. It’s created by my dear friend Rachel and she kindly gifted this piece before I went to Maldives. I love how beautifully done this swimsuit. (Click + button on top of my photo to the similar one.)
Honeymoon in Maldives is surreal. I hope you find your dream honeymoon, too.
