Everything about this resort was perfect…so let me try my best to capture it all! At arrival we were met by lyn..so warm and friendly…she explained everything and walked us to our over water suite..what a beauty that was!! So spacious and the deck that just opens up to the water was my favorite place in the room! These rooms have a dedicated bar and restaurant where the meals were served. The Rehendhi restaurant and bar. The food and drink was excellent. The all inclusive package gives you access to drinks at any time and also snacks. The food was of the best quality and the staff was just excellent. They always wanted to know what more they can do…from Lahiru to Nawoda to Nasir to swetha to also the person in the bar (I couldn’t get his name) was just so friendly and helpful. The chefs - Khair I have never had pasta that great and he is so passionate about his cooking…always wanted us to try something new. Chef Ashan who prepared a special crab curry for us! Definitely one of the best crab curries I have ever had..he also always came spoke to us and asked what he can prepare for the next meal. The buffet items were also very tasty and there was variety. We also celebrated my mums belated birthday and they went to so much detail in that that too. Last but not the least a big thank you to GM Sanjeeva. You have a great team at cinnamon dhonvali that just makes the stay so perfect and memorable for all the guest! Simply excellent!!

Hotel's Favorite
We had a wonderful 10 night stay for our honeymoon. The island resort is incredible, with amazing wildlife which made it feel magical, from large bats in the evening, to the reef sharks, rays, octopus and range of beautiful fish. We stayed in one of the overwater suites which was brilliant. The only negatives I would mention is that the room seemed fairly tired, with quite a lot of wear/damage on fixtures and fittings. We also had issues with our air conditioning unit, the maintenance team re-gassed which fixed it for a couple of days, but then we had the same problem again before leaving. Final feedback would be that the view wasn’t quite what we were expecting. It was still lovely, but we were looking across to another island/resort, rather than the uninterrupted view out the the ocean as we had naively imagined. The food was fantastic! The staff were very friendly, in particular I think I should call out Khair, one of the chef’s, whose happy attitude was infectious. The restaurant manager Sulaiman was great, he was very helpful and went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. Also our waiter Akram was brilliant, very polite and professional service, he was not intrusive or over bearing, but always there when needed. The island and resort is beautiful, we spent a lot of time on the beach, snorkelling and enjoying the beautiful white sand. One piece of advice, the sun is strong! If you’re fair skinned like we are, then be careful! We went pink with factor 50 on whilst trying to stay in the shade! Take lots of suncream, the suncream in the resort shop was very overpriced, but you don’t have any other option. We got very lucky with the weather, being August and the rainy season, we were a bit worried about the weather, but we had one evening of rain (the day we arrived) and then the rest of the 10 days were beautiful, barely a cloud in the sky and hot hot hot. Very happy! We went on the private couples dolphin watching excursion, and this is something I would highly recommend. Hundreds of spinner dolphins entertaining us whilst watching the sunset, an experience we will never forget, and well worth the money. Going to watch the surfers at pasta point was great, awesome waves and good drinks! An amazing honeymoon that we will never forget! Thank you so much to everyone at Cinnamon Dhonveli! We hope to be back again in the future

Atmosphere was very relaxed, and staff made you feel valued & were courteous & friendly at all times. The restaurant staff were very attentive and the food, both in range of choice and quality, was outstanding. I have been to bigger resorts in the Maldives but this small island creates a more calming environment and quickly won me over. Only minor complaint was the reservation of sunbeds with beach towels. Like so many other resorts, every single sunbed around the pool was reserved first thing in the morning, despite not being occupied for several hours. It would be great to consider a maximum reserve time, after which towels are removed and beds are freed if still unoccupied. This would at least prevent early risers from setting their pitch at 6am and not attending until after midday.

Just returned Cincinnati Dhonveli after a 10 day holiday . Had a really lovely time,the staff were very welcoming and very efficient. We went all inclusive and the buffet style restaurant was very good with lots of choice. One point ,on the resort description they have 3 restaurants but you are actually allocated one to eat at when you arrive depending on what type of accommodation you have. There is no choice. But the range of food available is immense. I would also like to say,and I hope the management reads this,beach bungalows 422 to 418 need a great deal of sand to be replaced in front of the bungalows where it has been eroded by the sea , the sooner the better. I wouldn't be happy to stay there with it like that. But overall we had a truly memorable holiday.

Just returned from an amazing holiday at the cinnamon Dhonveli with my Husband and 17 month old Daughter. Where to start … we booked our holiday through Virgin Holiday and flew business class with Emirates with a stop at Dubai and stayed 10 nights in the over Water villa at this hotel This holiday was absolutely incredible from start to finish ! Great island, hotel, staff, everything was pure perfection. A review was the least I can do to give those well deserved shout outs to individuals who made our stay pure perfection. We booked the Premium All inclusive with gives a lot more than the standard all inclusive did and from talking to other guests - the premium all inclusive was very much worth the extra money. We weren’t previously told until we arrived but being premium all inclusive also gave us a 50 miniutes balinense massage each and a romantic dinner on the beach for every 5 nights stay so because we were there 10 days we got double all this ! Very nice surprise indeed. Also, staying in an overwater villa gave us special access to an additional restaurant and pool bar. Where we had a reserved table for us Every day with our usual drink orders waiting for us for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff were incredible, nothing was too much ! We brought our toddlers suction plates and bowls with us and they were more than happy for us to leave them on the table and wash them for us for the next use, because we had the same table for each meal we ended up leaving her bib, bottle and cuttlery as well ! Mushtfsh, Sweta and Nawoda saw to our every visit to the restaurant and these guys are amazing, they interacted with our daughter at every meal and really went over and above their role ! Thank you guys for making our visit stress-free ! Our daughter would always look out for these guys and want to go with them to play and they would willingly accept this and interact with her when possible - the chef was even showing her around at one point ! The chef - OMG the food was incredible, we didn’t have a bad meal once ! Special shout out to the Sous Chef, Ashan who always came out to say hello and personally saw to a private BBQ I had arranged prior to our visit for my husbands birthday. And made food on request for our toddler and my fussy husband. The private BBQ was a little pricey at $330 per couple BUT it was for a special birthday and it did not dissappoint - there’s a seafood or meat option (we opted for meat) T-bone and sirloin steaks, lamb sausages, chicken, corn on the cob, jacket potatoes, chow mien, Mac and cheese - all cooked to perfection and that didn’t even include the other courses that we had as well ❤️ Chef Khair who manages the pasta/omelette station area was incredible and made so many extra dishes for us and my daughter loved his spag bowl. Khair was so good that he was truely missed by all the guests when he had 1 day off during our stay ! The Rehendi Bar is where we went every night, Akila and Tharuka made the best drinks I’ve ever had at an all inclusive - top shelf spirits (limited to premium all inclusive) each drink I had was amazing and nothing was too much - another guest asked for an old fashioned which they had to look up and he said it’s the best old fashioned he had ever had - well done guys! Again these guys would play numerous rounds of peek-a-boo with our daughter to play with her in and around the pool area. Seriously though if your wondering whether to travel to the Maldives with a young family this Is the place you need to go to. All the staff love playing and interacting with the children, there’s a seperate kids pool (where my daughter could stand up in) and a giant park on the island. Nothing is to much to ask and the beach and sea life are just incredible - I may have cried more than once on this holiday purely from ticking major things of my bucket list and I didn’t even need to leave the room at times ! Saw the dolphins playing from the infinity pool, swam with a turtle from our overwater villa, saw the sharks, rays and so many variety of fish. It was a beautiful place and I would go back in a heartbeat ❤️ One more shout out to Sattar / one of the pool attendants who we always saw round the infinity pool who really did just want to make everyone’s stay extra special - from making fresh flower Leis , decorating sun beds with fresh flowers and made my husband a special birthday bouquet with balloons ! AND ! even gave my daughter a little toy fish which will be cherished forever The island and the hotel is incredible but it really was the staff who made our holiday amazing. Just eveything was 👌🏼 Would recommend 10000000%

Beautiful place. Staff are wonderful and the food was delicious. Great entertainment and lots to do, or the perfect place to relax. Turtle excursion was fantastic and the private dolphin trip was even better. Beach bar is the best place. Osi and Chanda are the best 🙌🏻
