An enjoyable week of winter sun, in a fantastic setting, but a few things to watch… Accommodation – is fairly basic, not uncommon for this part of the world, but cleaned twice a day with very effective air conditioning. The ‘Superior Room’ was OK, but the French doors not very secure. The safe provided was fine and free, and we...

We had booked our 4 day trip through Holiday Factory, and were staying on Hulhumale Island with the option of the daily boat transfer to Cinnamon Dhonveli. For the first two days, we arrived as day-trippers and enjoyed the all-inclusive package. The staff were very friendly and offered a short welcome meeting which explained everything on the island and what...

Having explored Sri Lanka for a few days prior to touching down at Cinnamon Dhonveli it really was the best way to finish our holiday. Having read a few reviews which picked holes in the resort I was worried that it would not exceed my expectations but I was wrong! Photographs simply cannot do this place justice. From arriving via...

This is a good 4 star resort 20 minutes north of Male (in a speedboat). It’s not too big and is very quiet and relaxing. BOAT TRANSFER This is a bit chaotic, but all Maldevian boat transfers appear this way. We came through the airport and were directed to a booth to get luggage tags for the resort.

My wife and I stayed at this resort in January 2017. This overall proved to be a very mixed experience. We went primarily to enjoy ourselves in a beautiful new location and have a restful trip. We achieved this by sitting on the beautiful beach with the crystal clear blue water which was lovely to see. The scenery on the...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from the 11th January. We had booked the superior beach bungalow but on arrival we found it was far from superior. The room actually overlooked a low brick wall overlooking the sea but no access directly to the beach. We complained about this and were moved to a 2 Storey beach house....

This is another beautiful island in the Maldives. We stayed in one of the water bungalows which was just amazing though I would happily stay in any of the rooms on the island.
