Yes it has been very hard to get back to reality especially after being to such an amazing place!!
I would like to say a massive thank you to Jodie for convincing me to go with Six Senses Laamu when I was trying to decide which resort to go with.
Six senses was everything and even more than what I was looking for in a holiday. The accommodation was stunning, the food was so delicious and the people were just so amazing as nothing was a problem for them. It was so lovely to be greeted everyday by smiling faces!! They also taught my 71 year old mother how to ride a tricycle after all these years of never even hopped on a bike and the dancers you see dressed in red (in pictures attached) absolutely loved William and wanted him to join their team, it was very funny and lovely to see him dancing with them.
I was so sad to leave it was that fantastic!!
I will certainly recommend Extraordinary Escapes to Family and Friends.
I have attached some photos of our experience at Six Senses Laamu for you to look at.
I know when I mentioned to Lyndon that you also deal with Whistler holidays he seemed very interested in organising a snow trip along with a visit to Hawaii on the way back so when we are ready to do this I will be in touch.
I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.
Thank you once again.

Dear Annette and Jodie
The holiday was amazing – just perfect. Nothing more we could have asked for.
We were also very lucky in that on the day we landed, Six Senses were trialling their second seaplane arrival so that was a lovely way to arrive on the island.
Our GEM, Shivu, was fantastic – catered to our every needs, beach villa was great and the food was amazing.
Beautiful holiday, wonderful memories and trying to ensure that we retain a bit of island magic while we freeze back in Melbourne with 4 degree temperatures!!!
Thank you both for everything – will definitely be using Extraordinary Escape services again on our next adventure.

Hi Annette and Jodie,
We have just returned from our holiday, and wanted to say a huge thank you to you both. Six Senses was absolutely amazing- we were so happy with the choice of resort. Amazing food, staff, snorkelling and the perfect room set up for our family. Your expert advice on choosing a resort was so very much appreciated. The Shangri La in Singapore was great too, and we did get our adjoining room.
All of our other special requests came through, which was wonderful too.
We are super impressed with your service and specialised knowledge and will definitely recommend you to others.
Thanks so much again,
The Maldives were stunning. We both absolutely loved it and the resort was amazing also. I really appreciate the time and that yourself and Jodie provided in making sure we went to the right resort. We both went snorkelling together along the reef, from Jetty A to the Chill Out Bar and also from the common pool area. I was also able to scuba dive which was amazing also, I went twice actually. We loved it all, the movies on the beach, the staff, the massage in the hut, snorkelling, scuba diving, the food at leaf, our amazing villa and private pool, the bike riding and crystal blue water the surrounded us.
I tagged you in our photos so hopefully you saw them all.
Thanks again for making our honey moon memorable.
Adam & Lauren.

On behalf of my family and I a huge thank you for organising our trip to Six Senses Lamu. We all had the most unbelievable holiday! My husband and I have been traveling the globe every year, for the last 20 years, and we haven’t had an experience like we just had at Six Senses Resort. This was our 4th trip to the Maldives and we would happily return to Six Senses, it ticked every box so thank you Jodie for recommending this resort. The transfers were perfect to and from the resort and from the time we arrived bare foot we were in heaven. It really was an out of world experience in such natural paradise. The snorkelling from our ocean villa was exactly what we were after. The kids were so enthusiastic about the snorkelling because it was so easy to swim from our villa and witness truly another world! We honestly spent more time in the sea than on land. The scuba diving excursions were fantastic. We greatly appreciate the efforts to request the last Ocean villa which was fulfilled on our arrival. The service and food were exceptional. The resort is great for families and couples.
I would also like to add that the service we received from Extraordinary Escapes was excellent. There was no question Jodie and her valuable team could not answer which we were grateful for. The holiday was tailored to our specific requests. Thank you Jodie & Annette for the exceptional service and we look forward to booking our next trip to the Maldives with you.
It was AMAZING!!!! I had high expectations and they were exceeded :) Thank you so much for everything you did for us, hopefully we will be able to visit to the Maldives again. Whenever people ask about our trip I cant help but show them all of our happy snaps and tell them that we booked through you guys and what a great package it was - well worth the 27hours to get there.
We ended up with Villa 28 on the Sunrise side which ended up being perfect as we had a nice view of the Islands/ocean and Bungalows (would ask for this room again). As for the resort I cannot fault a thing (except for our bill at the end haha but having the half board was a life-saver!). The staff were wonderful and incredibly friendly/helpful. Buffett nights were excellent and we visited the spa twice and spent most afternoons sipping cocktails and playing Jenga and arguing over Uno at the Chill Bar, we saw Dolphins and Scuba Dived geee i could go on and on but ultimately it was a perfect Honeymoon! Thanks again, hopefully we will be in touch to book Whistler next xmas (fingers crossed)!

Hi Angela, Our trip to Six Senses Laamu was the MOST amazing trip Jamie and I have ever been on in our lives. We were so grateful that we got to experience the most beautiful place on Earth. Thank you so much for all of your planning and emails and time. We both truly were blown away by your help and the destination. Some fantastic news while we were there, we got engaged! What a place to do it!!!
The service, the people, the accommodation & the food were truly remarkable and you made that all possible for us, I wouldn\\\\\\\'t have know where to start! So a huge thank you to you and your team at Extraordinary Escapes. I\\\\\\\'m sure you will hear from us again. I have also recommended your service to all of my friends and family.
I hope you are well Angela, Happy New Year.

Just to let you know we had the most wonderful time at Six Senses Laamu. The people were very caring and worked hard to ensure we all had a fabuluous holiday. You may also want to know that our 17yr old son has Autism and the resort staff made such an effort to make us and him feel welcome at all times. By the time we left the resort, I think pretty much everyone on the Island knew who our son “Charlie” was!!!
Thank you again for all you efforts. It was greatly appreciated.

Hi Jodie, Six Senses Laamu Maldives was an amazing experience, we were really happy with our stay there. Everything went well from the very first pick up to the drop off at the international terminal. The resort staff were extremely helpful and over accommodating to ensure we felt as comfortable as possible.We would also like to thank you and the team, especially Annette for the whole booking process and the detailed itinerary! It was extremely useful to us.
Overall we loved the Maldives and would like to thank you guys once again for an amazing service and advice! We even got the best villa! (Villa 10).

Big Thankyou to Extraordinary Escapes for planning our dream honeymoon!
Angela and the team were so helpful right from the start in narrowing down a resort that best suited our needs- Six Senses Laamu. The island was beautiful beyond belief and all the little details were sorted out by Angela prior to our arrival. Everything was so stress-free! We have no hesitation in recommending Extraordinary Escapes to anyone who wants to plan that special trip to the Maldives!

It was great! It was the perfect place for our honeymoon.
It was more beautiful than all the pictures we had seen. Having bicycles to get around the place was very unique and we enjoyed it very much. The villas were beautiful. All of our requests which we made beforehand to you were met. All the staff there were very friendly and helpful. They made us feel very much at home. We also enjoyed the daily breakfasts. The ice cream bar was another one of our favourite places to visit.
The Dine Around Experience was very good. It meant that each dinner was already planned out for us and we did not have to concern ourselves about how much each dinner would cost or whether there would be a table for us. However, with regards to the Wine Cellar Dinner, we were served wine as part of the dinner and were unaware that we had to pay an extra USD 300 for the wine which we did not order. We would have preferred to beforehand about the extra cost involved and we feel that this should be made explicitly clear to your future clients. Nevertheless, it was still a great experience and we would still recommend it to other clients.
We would strongly recommend Six Senses Laamu to other clients. It is very good value for money with plenty of good food and activities. Thank you for recommending Six Senses to us. It has made our honeymoon the perfect one.
Again thanks so much for your help! I have passed on your name and company name to my sister as her and her partner are planning on going to the Maldives next year as I can't tell you how impressed I am with your service....!!

My family absolutely loved the trip and it will be a very treasured time for our family to remember. Thanks for all your great organisation it really helped to make the trip terrific.
