4* Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives
Cinnamon Dhonveli, Maldives
Star Rating: ****
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. Most rooms and facilities now have a fresh new look as the island had a major refurbishment towards the end of 2019.
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 Rehendhi 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 are housed under thatched roofs. Choose between the Superior Ocean View or Beach Bungalows facing the ocean. We love the two-storey Exclusive Duplex Garden Bungalows (exclusively reserved for Kuoni UK guests from November to February) 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. Inside you’ll find white walls and floors, a downstairs lounge area plus a mezzanine bedroom with balcony. Over water, options include Water Bungalows, which have a peaceful location in a shallow lagoon, and the premium Overwater Suites, which have direct access to the ocean. From November, you can also choose the new Junior Beach Suite or Beach Suite with Pool.
