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.
Rooms here are simply furnished and housed under thatched roofs. We love the two-storey Exclusive Garden Bungalows 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, with splashes of colour, a downstairs lounge area plus a mezzanine bedroom with balcony overlooking the ocean. Over water, accommodation options include Water Bungalows to the south-east of the island and Overwater Suites to the north-east, both with overwater decks and direct access to the lagoon.
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.
