My husband and I just got back from a 10 day stay at Cinnamon Dhonveli for our honeymoon, and it was an absolute dream. On arrival, we were met by our Kuoni representative who ensured we got our speedboat transfer without issues. I’d strongly recommend booking with Kuoni – they really looked after us. The speedboat was just 25 minutes... More

Me and my husband came last week, the organisation of the resort is one of the best I have experienced. We easily got the speedboat to the hotel (only took max 20 minutes) and easily checked in with our refreshing fruit juice and towel at reception. We had booked the water bungalow, however they overbooked this so for one night... More

Stayed here for a week. Amazed by all the wildlife in the sea, land and air. We saw something new every day. Bring a snorkel, mask and flippers to see it all. Beautiful white coral sands and clear turquoise waters. We were informed via Virgin about some works on a nearby island which was fairly noisy, which you eventually zone... More

Just back from a week long stay in Cinnamon Dhonveli which was without doubt one of the best resorts I have stayed in. Service is exemplary.
