Six Senses Laamu, Laamu Atoll, Maldives
Set on the private island of Olhuveli, beautifully remote, and with the luxury of being the only resort in Laamu Atoll, this is a seriously-cool, palm-fringed paradise, so cool, in fact, dolphins are often found swimming along its sandy shoreline.
Stylishly-designed villas are perched over the lagoon with sunken glass bathtubs and overwater hammocks, or beachside with private gardens surrounded by lush forest – and if you like the idea of an extra bedroom and a private pool, there’s the two-bedroom Lagoon Beach Villa for a little extra pizzazz.
Snorkel or surf with passing pods of dolphins and rainbows of fish in and around the coral reef, then indulge at the spa or the Ice & Chocolate Studio.
Come sundown, relax overwater at the Chill Bar
or at the Altitude Cellar & Deli – a glimmering wine tower of spun glass,
stocked with 400 Old and New World vintages and imported European charcuterie
and cheeses, then head to dinner at one of the three innovative dining venues.
