We just returned back from Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives after one unforgettable vacation. Everything in this resort exceeded our expectations. From the very first contact to the administration via email to the drop off at the airport on our departure, absolutely everything was done with top care. My husband and I have stayed in many all-inclusive resorts around the world, but Cinnamon is the model for others to follow. We especially want to thank again the following individuals: Patrice - amazing welcoming and friendly all the way to the end. She was even kind enough to attend our wedding vow renewal and take videos/photos. How kind! Ushan- super friendly and always so helpful! Chomil- wonderful personality and super attentive. Khadi - one of the friendliest chefs ever! Pramod - took so much time to explain to us about other Cinnamon hotels in Sri Lanka as we are planning our trip there. Latheef - our waiter who remembered our drinks and always made sure that they are ready to go with perfect timing. Arisa and another girl sous-chef - always friendly and patient with our juice/salad orders Nawoda- always friendly, approachable, wonderful personality, and on top of everything. Malinda - most amazing bartender - he gave us a “wedding gift” by creating a pina colada mocktail in a freshly harvested coconut. Well done to the whole team and keep up the amazing work. We can’t wait to see you all again in the near future!

The property and the people were great. A couple who stood out to me were Sara S in the front office and the omelette guy (I do not remember his name) at the restaurant by the suites. So kind. Also the manager at the Spa, the woman from Bali also went above and beyond what was expected. The resort was outstanding
