Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives Holidays 2016-2017
Luxury Maldives Holiday
With its welcoming staff, easy-going nature and great value all inclusive, this is a popular resort.
Offering an affordable escape to the Maldives, Cinnamon Dhonveli showcases the diversity of the Indian Ocean, with a dramatic surf break with crashing waves to one side of the island and a calm lagoon for snorkelling on the other. You can spot turtles, reef sharks and rays by snorkelling offshore from the beach, but it’s also worth venturing further afield on an underwater adventure with the excellent dive centre.
There's a casual, laid-back vibe here. For dining, you’ll be allocated one of the three restaurants – Koimala in the gardens, Maakana with a view of the surf break, or Rehendi at the edge of the lagoon. All are buffet-style, with a wide choice of international dishes and live cooking stations. Raalhu Bar’s outdoor deck overlooks a renowned surf point, and dolphins and even pilot whales can occasionally be spotted, while the Raiyvilaa Bar is the perfect spot for sundowners.
Rooms here are simply furnished and housed under thatched roofs. We love the two-storey Exclusive Garden Bungalows for the space and excellent value that they offer, as well as the fact that they sit in shaded gardens just steps from the ocean. These light and airy rooms are popular with surfers during the surf season, but from November to February are exclusively reserved for Kuoni UK guests – no surfing required! Inside you'll find white walls and floors, with splashes of colour, a downstairs lounge area plus a mezzanine bedroom with balcony with ocean views. Over water, accommodation options include Water Bungalows to the south-east of the island and Overwater Suites to the north-east, both with overwater decks and direct access to the lagoon.
