Six Senses Laamu is set on a stunning atoll in the southern Maldives, a beautiful castaway island of white-sand beaches shaded by towering palm trees, offering endless views across the Indian Ocean.

To reach the remote island, you can travel by boat or small plane, arriving in paradise and letting your worries wash away.

The Maldives are known for their extraordinary marine life, and guests will have a good chance of spotting dolphins and green turtles, diving alongside rays and reef sharks, and snorkelling to spot parrotfish and colourful coral reefs.

Six Senses Laamu is involved in a number of Marine Conservation initiatives, working in partnership with various foundations on key local projects that will help to protect the natural world.

Visiting the Maldives is all about relaxing in a serene natural setting. Days are spent exploring at leisure; island hopping for private beach picnics, snorkelling and diving with expert instructors, surfing, catamaran sailing, fishing, or simply lazing in a shaded hammock with a good book.

I would recommend escaping by boat to a private sandbank for a delicious private lunch, or taking a Dhoni cruise at sunset when the sky and ocean turn a myriad of colours.

For young families, there are lots of activities to enjoy, such as beach volleyball and football, island treasure hunts, movie nights on the beach, Finding Nemo snorkelling adventures, cooking classes, and the Den Children’s Club.

Accommodation at Six Senses Laamu is luxurious and rustic-chic; private villas are positioned on the beachfront with private gardens (best for families), or raised over the water on stilts, with views of the lagoon or ocean.

Each villa has a spacious deck with comfortable day beds where you can relax, sunbathe and snooze to the sounds of the ocean, then jump into the water to cool off. The villas have various special features; upper decks with comfortable seating to take in stunning ocean views, glass-bottomed sunken bathtubs, overwater hammocks and outdoor rain-showers.

For a private dining experience, I recommend the 5-course dinner at the Garden Chili Table, surrounded by the organic garden, or a beach bbq; a grilled seafood feast is served at your own secluded beach dining table, encircled by tiki torches, just steps from the ocean, with a beautiful soundtrack of waves lapping the shore. Arrive in time for sunset, and dine by firelight under a canopy of stars.

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.

Take a look at my travel diaries for food for thought on your next trip...
