This being Six Senses, it goes without saying the spa was divine:
Amazing staff and giant, wicker-nest-like treatment rooms that merge marvellously with all the foliage. Try the Laamu Balinese Bliss treatment, a beautifully scented warm wrap of ginger, cloves and nutmeg.
But the highlight of our trip has to be our private picnic. Whisked by speedboat to our own magical deserted island (the stuff that dreams are made of, with talcum-powder-like sand, clear, turquoise waters and just a few extra 'luxuries' like a bathroom, sheltered dining area, a couple of loungers, and a few palm trees for shade), we were 'castaway' for the day with picnic hampers of beautiful salads, meats, cheeses, breads and fresh fruit to tuck into after sunbathing and swimming. Neither of us could remember ever having felt so relaxed. It's beyond romantic; in fact, we debated whether we'd ever be ready to leave!
