We just returned back from Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives after one unforgettable vacation. Everything in this resort exceeded our expectations. From the very first contact to the administration via email to the drop off at the airport on our departure, absolutely everything was done with top care. My husband and I have stayed in many all-inclusive resorts around the world, but Cinnamon is the model for others to follow. We especially want to thank again the following individuals: Patrice - amazing welcoming and friendly all the way to the end. She was even kind enough to attend our wedding vow renewal and take videos/photos. How kind! Ushan- super friendly and always so helpful! Chomil- wonderful personality and super attentive. Khadi - one of the friendliest chefs ever! Pramod - took so much time to explain to us about other Cinnamon hotels in Sri Lanka as we are planning our trip there. Latheef - our waiter who remembered our drinks and always made sure that they are ready to go with perfect timing. Arisa and another girl sous-chef - always friendly and patient with our juice/salad orders Nawoda- always friendly, approachable, wonderful personality, and on top of everything. Malinda - most amazing bartender - he gave us a “wedding gift” by creating a pina colada mocktail in a freshly harvested coconut. Well done to the whole team and keep up the amazing work. We can’t wait to see you all again in the near future!

The property and the people were great. A couple who stood out to me were Sara S in the front office and the omelette guy (I do not remember his name) at the restaurant by the suites. So kind. Also the manager at the Spa, the woman from Bali also went above and beyond what was expected. The resort was outstanding

This place is a great place if you just wanna get away from the concrete jungle of working. R&R is great.Patrice will attend to you every need alway asking is everything alright. Shahadat and Mahesh are always attending you with all the drinks you desire. The restaurant staff at the over water suites side were awesome and don’t hesitate to make the eggs and stir fry’s the way you like it. All and all this place is great and I will definitely come back!!!

The staff is excellent! My husband and I stay for 6 days and 5 nights. Staff remembered us by name and were so pleasant. Food was also pretty good , maybe opening up 1 more restaurant would be great for more options. The room was just how described in the description, we enjoyed it. The water in our balcony was pretty rocky so we couldn’t explore the over water suite water too much. Two things I would also suggest is to make it one type of all inclusive (there is also a premium we were not aware of prior to booking). Secondly, add more activities for the guest (eg. shows, water aerobics, dance offs , etc). Overall we did enjoy our stay.
