We stayed in Chaaya Dhonoveli for a week in March 2014. That is by far not enough time to spend in that paradise! The whole experience was just amazing, from the speedboat transfer (wow!), and the welcome when we arrived. We had a superior room on the other side of the island from the lagoon. There is another small beach... More

We honeymooned here for 4 nights, way too short really but it's all the time we had. We loved every minute of our time here and the island/ hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We relaxed to the utmost here and only hired snorkelling gear each day and snorkelled around the lagoon and water bungalows. Despite this we still saw... More

We have just got back from the most amazing holiday! Couldn't fault the location, accommodation, travel, staff or food. As a vegetarian I often find myself with little options but here the staff made sure I always had a good choice often making me special dishes, thanks to chef Ali!

We had a very nice week here, staying in an over-water suite. I was surprised by the humidity - my swimming trunks just didn't dry out! The people are lovely and friendly, always saying hello or good morning when they see you. We were also personally cooked for by the best pasta chef in the Maldives, in the Rehendi restaurant,...

We stayed at Chaaya Island Dhonveli for two weeks in March, our accommodation was in a water suite, which was excellent, with sun all day especially the rooms from 718 - 724.
