I was looking forward to my stay in this resort since a year now and I can say all my expectations were surpassed. The location is beautiful, with beach and shallow waters around the island and a lot of marine life to explore by Snorkeling. Khushbu from Front Desk, Pooja and Hassan at the main restaurant, Pradeep at the pool, Waail at the Fen Bar, Shamaal from Housekeeping and Fala from the Dive center took care of us like family. We felt a part of that island for the length of our stay with their personal touch to everything. We also met lovely people from around the world which was also a wonderful experience. The room, view, sunsets, moon-rise, stars, waves, colors of water, pool, snorkeling, fishes, food, drinks, entertainment, service.... everything was perfect for our much awaited Honeymoon. I have decided to visit Cinnamon Velifushi again in a few years.

My husband and I visited Cinnamon Velifushi in March, we had planned to stay 6 nights- but due to the COVID-19 lockdowns, we were left with no option but to stay an extra 7 days at Cinnamon. We had the most incredible time there!! The staff, the service, the food and facilities were out of this world. The staff are friendly, kind and went over and beyond to make us feel at home, they were always welcoming and keen to share their off time chatting and inviting us to snorkel or play football with them. The food at meal times was like nothing we had ever experienced before, the kitchen staff went through so much effort to make every meal perfectly unique, and so delicious!! We would like to thank the following staff for always going over and beyond. The Cinnamon staff became like family and we will forever be grateful to them for welcoming us and to have shared this experience with them. Aileen at reception- thank you for your kindness and compassion. Our room boy, Fayaaz, thank you for always offering a good chat, making sure we weRe always happy and laughing. Shaz, our waiter and the rest of the restaurant staff, your professionalism and dedication to making us happy is something we will never forget. Pooja- thank you for always putting a smile on our faces. To the soccer guys, thank you for including Me and allowing me to be part of your off time fun. Athif- for accommodating us and being so willing to help in this stressful time! Thank you, Cinnamon. You will always have a special place in our hearts, your excellence and dedication to all your guests is first class! We appreciate all you did for us. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Regards Raul & Olivia

They promise a refund after 21 days if you cancel on time, but i am waiting almost 2 months and still no . refund! So think twice before you book the resort We tried to contact them a few times via email but they don’t give a specific answer about why they are late with the refund and of course a very blurry answer about when it will be. Answers in 2 maybe 3 days..
