Everything about Cinnamon Dhonveli was excellent. The staff, accommodation, food, cleanliness and beach facilities were all truly wonderful. Having a smart TV in the room enabled us to watch current sports which my husband loved. We stayed in a Junior Suite which was perfect. I would return in a heartbeat!

Room tip: Our beautiful Junior Suite had shade if required and a beautiful view of the beach.

Hotel was great, staff very nice. but the beach was full of dead corals and the concrete next to the chairs has broken off risk of injury. I wouldn't go back because of the beach, otherwise it was a very nice vacation.

Dear annabA697DB,

Greetings from Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives!


Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and observation with us. We are delighted that you had an overall good stay with us. We have noted your feedback and have taken this opportunity to share it with the respective teams for their review and improvement. It is saddened to hear that beach condition marred your stay with us. We regret that though we have been blessed with the beautiful surrounding around us, sometimes we have to help in maintaining which happened in the case of the beach erosion. It is a natural cycle and seasonal transition, although some islands do suffer more intensely from it. We need to do sand pump which is an similarly used along with most resorts to fight against the occasional erosion of our beaches.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide us with the valuable feedback and we do hope that we will be able to welcome you back in future perhaps to our sister property in the Maldives.

Sincerely,

Shiela Marie
Front Office Manager

Absolutely outstanding 7th visit to Dhonveli. We we treated like royalty from the minute we arrived, and were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Beach Suite from our booked Beach Bungalow. As always the food is excellent, all the restaurant team are incredibly friendly, especially the amazing chef Kahir, who goes out of his way to make sure you have something you like and Siti who makes amazing salads. We enjoyed two beach dinners - one steak and one lobster Thermidor - again excellent quality as always. Lots of work continues on the beach following storm damage with sand being pumped in - we have seen this many times before and look forward to next time seeing the beach back to it’s normal beauty. The team at the Sunset are excellent, especially Priyantha, Malinda, Dilsham, Mahosh, Dilipa, and Osi - they all go out of their way to look out for you. We enjoyed two Spa treatments again - the Spa team are always so friendly and give fantastic treatments. We will always continue to recommend Dhonveli for an amazing stay in Paradise at good value. We would like to thank everyone at Team Dhonveli for making our stay so special again, and look forward to seeing you for our 8th visit.

My husband & I had the best time. We’ve been coming to the island since 2007, this trip was the first time without our children. We were worried we’d be sad because of all our wonderful memories at Dhonveli with them, butI we had a throughly enjoyable time.
The staff so friendly and were so helpful from the towel people to reception staff. I don’t have one negative thing to say.
Since our last trip in 2016, there has been a lot of improvements, the rooms, the dining area, the food stations, sunset bar. It’s all great.
