CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS
Say the word ‘Maldives’ and visions of Robinson Crusoe-esque islands spring to mind. In the virtually uncharted territory of the Laamu Atoll, this Six Senses resort makes good on that vision. It is an understated island paradise located deep in the Indian Ocean, towards the far southern reaches of the Maldivian archipelago. Along the coast you’ll find 97 villas: some are set on the powdery sands with sun loungers, direct access to the beach and a treetop deck for sunset viewing; others hover above the blue waters on timber jetties – with glass-bottom bathtubs offering some of the best views on the island.
Dining at the resort is world class, with three restaurants and two bars, an ice-cream studio and a wine cellar and deli. Most of those are set over water and all have picture-postcard tropical views.
For those wanting to dip straight into the waters, the 8ft Yin-Yang is a world-class surf break just off shore. Snorkelling from the Chill Bar is a must, and guests can watch playful spinner dolphins enjoy a regular morning and evening swim in the atoll. Wakeboarding, diving, water-skiing and windsurfing are all available, while those looking for something a little more relaxing can enjoy the spa.
To celebrate Black Friday, Turquoise Holidays is offering seven nights, half board at Six Senses Laamu from £1,999 per person (based on two sharing) including domestic and international flights with SriLankan Airlines. This price includes 50% off the accommodation price, complimentary half-board dining and speedboat transfers. Guests travelling in the summer will also receive a complimentary sunset dolphin cruise.
This year, Turquoise Holidays is championing the ‘secret season’ in March, when guests can hit the sweet spot – not only is it a beautiful time of year to travel, but it comes without the crowds, or the hefty price tag of high season. Book between 28th November and 2nd December to get seven nights in March, from £2,399 per person on a half-board basis, including domestic and international flights. That’s a potential saving of £6,578 per couple.
The Black Friday sale also extends to families looking to holiday in the Maldives. Children staying at Six Senses Laamu will love the ‘Cinema Under the Stars’ experience, treasure hunts, dolphin cruises and island picnics. Turquoise Holidays is offering seven nights on a half-board basis at Six Senses Laamu from £5,899 per family (based on two adults and two children, 11 years and under) including domestic and international economy flights with SriLankan Airlines.
Six Senses Laamu, Laamu Atoll, Maldives; Black Friday packages are on sale from 9am on Thursday 28th November until 5pm on Monday 2nd December.
