We visited Cinnamon Dhonveli in June 2022, we had a very good, relaxing and comfortable stay in our water bungalow (which was kindly upgraded for an extra night, before we moved into our beach bungalow). Overall, the culture of the island is very customer orientated with every member of staff keen on making the trip worthwhile.

The food in Makhana and Koimala restaurant was diversified and delicious with culinary delights hailing from multiple cultures.
A special thanks to Lassan for his hospitality and positive outlook which always made us feel welcome during our meals (also, in guiding us the food that was halal and non halal)
Also, thank you to Dilshan for the amazing fresh salad he was making everyday for us, never eaten so much salad in my life

A special thank you to the dive n sail team; Ali for making our scuba diving trip so memorable and worthwhile despite being non swimmers. Thanks to King for the help of transferring all photos of the scuba diving onto the phone. Lastly, thanks to Hassan for actively monitoring the weather to make parasailing possible for us and for the funtube activity.

However, we noticed a one thing which we would like the management to improve upon. Sometimes, we were unable to find towels at the beach and at the pool, therefore it would be good if adequate amount of towels are stocked.

I came to to this hotel for my dream holiday. This resort is more than I ever dreamed the Maldives would be. The over water suites are immaculate in cleanliness. And big in size, with a lovely large decking area and stairs to access the ocean with lovely big byfold doors from the suite to the decking. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are put in the bathroom to enjoy And are lovely. Thank you to Nimal who looked after our room, and did lovely displays of flowers on the bed.

The beach is white sand, crystal clear blue sea. And the different fish and all their colours are out of this world.

All the staff here are really friendly,happy and will do anything for you. We really appreciated what they did for us. Especially Sharif who looked after us at breakfast, lunch and dinner. He is a treasure to the resort. Thank you to Anggy who makes the best salads ever. Thank you to khair who cooks the best omelettes and pasta dishes that I've ever tasted. Then thank you to lasantha and his team for making amazing cakes and deserts, especially our anniversary cake. They are all delicious. Lasantha also cooked a suprise prawn dish for us one night. It was amazing. Every day was lovely to come to the bar and have a cocktail or mocktail and see the love smily faces of Akile and Sanjar.

The lovely pool Man Sattar was always to help us round the pool. He also made flower garlands, crowns and bouquets and supprised us. He has a heart of gold always making us smile.

I learnt to paddle board here, thank you to Kiboo who showed me what to do.

This place is amazing. If I ever get a chance to come to the Maldives I will not hesitate to choose Cinamon Dhonveli.

Great surf. Very helpful and accommodating surf guides. Exclusive surfing on the island but the short boat ride to neighbouring breaks is highly recommended and guides will be more than happy to arrange transport. Other activities such as snorkelling and diving available when relaxing between surfs. Great place for families. Excellent range and quality of food.

It is important to note that surfing is not included in the usual room rate and unless booked well in advance may not be possible as the number of surfers on the island at any time is limited. To book a surfing holiday you need to book through Atoll Travel.

Sattar brought us fresh flower garlands while we were seated at the pool. What a pleasant surprise. Absolutely in keeping with the level of service excellence we have become accustomed to from the barmen to the waiters to the management.A trip to remember for a lifetime.
