Spend your days on an idyllic island in the Maldives. Waking to the sound of waves lapping the shore is sure to be good for anyone’s soul, but throw in a visit to the Mandara Spa and your holiday to Cinnamon Dhonveli will leave you feeling fully relaxed and rejuvenated. Browse through the extensive spa menu as you sip jasmine tea and freshen up with a warm towel. Use the steam room to ease into the treatment you’ve signed up for, and then unwind with a therapeutic massage from the resort’s resident experts.
The waters around Cinnamon Dhonveli are renowned for being some of the best spots for surfing in the Maldives. But, if you aren’t a surfer, fear not – there are plenty more ocean adventures to keep you entertained. From big game fishing and boat excursions in search of dolphins, to scuba diving and swimming with turtles and manta rays, there’s something for everyone. The resort has lots of motorised and non-motorised watersports, including kayaking, jet-skiing and windsurfing. There’s a PADI dive centre on site, too, if you’re looking to learn to dive or doing an advanced qualification.
With five restaurants and bars, Cinnamon Dhonveli serves up delicious cuisine and delectable cocktails. Start things off at Raiyvilla, the main bar, where you can order your morning coffee or your evening espresso martini. You can also nibble on a variety of hot snacks, as you watch the sun sink into the horizon. Raalu Bar provides the best views of ‘Pasta Point’, the nearby surf break. Take a seat and watch surfers riding the giant left-handed waves. The relaxed vibe and the finger food make this the perfect place to relax.
