From beginning to end, the property makes sure they give you 5 star service! They had a boat waiting for us and a man that took our bags all the way inside the airport when we was leaving. Lyn was an amazing hostess.The food was incredible. The chef really took his time to customize how we liked our food, like our pastas. Also it was all you can eat buffet style, if you get the All inclusive package, which I highly recommend. The bartenders all make fantastic drinks and keep the vibe going. The dinning staff like Sonia and Ibrahim made sure all your needs were met. The pool attendant made cute flower gifts for me at the pool everyday. Also the cleaning man did a beautiful honeymoon display on our bed. The staff is what makes the resort unique. They genuinely want you to have a good time. The water bungalow suite was amazing. The suite was by the reef so you can see tons of fishes, sharks and sting rays. The room had a spa tub and shower to die for. Overall just an amazing resort!

I would like to thank the staff at Cinnamon Dhonveli for such an amazing experience! My wife and I had a great time! We would like to thank our server Lassan by the Water Suite Restaurant for his warmth and hospitality. We would also like to thank Katte and Koka from the Dive and Sail. They were super experienced during our Jet Ski tour. My wife had never snorkeled in her life and Koka was very professional and experienced in showing her a great underwater experience. Katte was amazing as a guide and we got to see Dolphins during our tour which was mind blowing! Our Water Suite was a mesmerizing experience. The room was clean and comfortable. Thank you again to the staff to Cinnamon Dhonveli Resort for an unforgettable trip! Truly to be remembered for years to come!

Superior ocean view room was modern and more spacious than expected. Managed to see dolphins swimming nearby on some mornings. Staff were very helpful. Resort is overall well maintained. Snorkelling on the beach lagoon was amazing - many variety of fish were seen.

We just finished our 13 day holiday in the Maldives and our stay at Cinnamon Dhonveli was definitely a highlight. We loved all the little details at Cinnamon and the staff was super friendly while making sure you have a 5 star experience. They had a really good local band one night and it was so much fun ! We loved that they seem to cater to every type of traveler. Akila at the surf bar and Niyaz our waiter were amazing and made us feel at home. The dive shop took us to see Mantas! Overall amazing experience we will definitely come back to Cinnamon Dhonveli next time we are in this part of the world.
