Six Senses Spa Laamu wins Condé Nast Readers’ Travel Award
Six Senses Spa at Six Senses Laamu resort in the Maldives has been recognised as one of the best hotel spas in the world at the Condé Nast Traveller’s 2017 Readers’ Travel Awards.
In the category of Overseas Hotel Spas, Six Senses Spa Laamu earned the 15th spot out of 20.
Set right on the beach, Six Senses Spa Laamu offers four uniquely designed couple’s treatment nests, four secluded couple’s treatment pavilions plus one Ayurvedic treatment pavilion, all within the island’s natural vegetation.
Highly skilled therapists use a variety of natural products to provide a comprehensive range of award-winning signature treatments, and rejuvenation and wellness specialties of the region. Some of the best visiting practitioners offer guests personal consultations and holistic therapies to achieve a better state of mind and more fulfilling life experiences.
Six Senses Laamu is the only resort located in the Laamu atoll, which lies in the southern part of the Maldives. Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the resort prides itself on its commitment to sustainable operations and development as outlined by Agenda 21 and Green Globe Benchmarking.
At Six Senses Laamu, most of the villas and facilities are built overwater. However, beach villas and on-land dining is an option. All villas offer a sense of privacy and seclusion, with an amazing view to the Ocean and Maldivian nature.
Six Senses Laamu offers a wide range of dining options, with cuisines from around the world, a swimming pool with a sunken bar, an ice cream parlour, an overwater wine cellar and a signature Chill bar. Many activities, excursions and options are available for everyone to enjoy, both overwater and underwater, in addition to the Six Senses Spa.
At the annual Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards ceremony, which was held at the Ham Yard Hotel in central London on September 5, the Maldives was also recognised as the islands with the best places to stay.
