Deep south – Six Senses is the only resort in the unspoilt Laamu Atoll and near the Yin Yang surf break.
Eco-chic honeymooners and stylish surfers.
Water babies will love this resort as 72 of the 97 villas are overwater. Opt for one of the Lagoon Water Villas at the end of the jetties for the best views and privacy. Don’t worry about the walk, every guest has a bicycle to whizz around the island, honeymooners even get personalised number plates. For show-stopping sunsets, check in at one of the Ocean Beach Villas on Leaf Beach and grab a bottle of champagne from your mini-bar just in time for the sky to blaze red, pink and orange.

Six Senses are serious about their spas and its Maldives outpost is no less sensational – with blissed-out treatments taking place in four woven ‘nests’ (or four more-conventional pavilions) hidden along the beach amongst the palms. Try an invigorating Kurumbaa Kaashi Coconut Rub using local ingredients good enough to eat.
Te eco-angle means there’s no pool, just the shimmering Indian Ocean waiting to be explored, but boy are you spoilt for choice of how to see it. Snorkel the house reef just in front of Chill bar (with a mango mojito on order for afers), surf the Yin Yang break, go deeper on one of the thrice-daily dive boats, paddle board, kayak, catamaran or take a sunset dolphin safari. Tis is much more than a fy and fop.
We love working through the 42 favours of ice cream and sorbet at the complimentary ice-cream bar. Our favourite? Te coconut and lychee… Yum.
