Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives

Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives is the perfect destination for those seeking pleasure. The warm waters of the azure sea are an ideal balm that lifts the spirits and calms the soul. Located no more than a 25-minute speedboat ride from Male, Dhonveli’s proximity and diversity combine to make it one of the most popular destinations in the Maldives. This resort was formally known as Chaaya Island Dhonveli. The in-house experience is unparalleled. Whilst perfect waves make surfing an unforgettable experience, the clear waters allows you to sample the beauty of incredible underwater treasures.


An interesting feature about the rooms of this resort is that each room offers a great view from every corner. This means that no matter where you stay, great sunrises, sunsets and the deep blue Indian Ocean are just outside your window.

Garden Bungalows

The 20 garden bungalows of the resort make a perfect haven for the surfer in paradise. Located right by the big waves of Pasta Point, these Garden Bungalows become a close-knit community of family & friends who return year after year to surf the giant morning waves. All the rooms come with balconies and verandahs overlooking the Laccadive Sea as you wake up to a small swarm of surfers lining the ocean each mornings.

Superior Rooms

The 24 Superior Rooms at the resort are spacious and comfortable, furnished with vibrant tones and extravagant amenities. Facing the Indian Ocean, the two storey rooms are a haven for the group on holiday. Air conditioned to keep you comfortable after a long day in the hot tropical sun, these superior rooms at Cinnamon Dhonveli allow everyone to have the best of times in one big room together.

Beach Bungalows

The beach bungalows are designed for those looking for great views of the ocean. These large, high ceiling rooms are the epitome of comfort for the whole family or a small group of friends. Walk outdoors to your semi-open bathroom showers area located outdoors but still closed off from the rest of the resort. Shower under the stars before you head back to your comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep.

Water Bungalows

There maybe a lot of water bungalows on offer in the Maldives, but the Cinnamon Dhonveli water bungalows are truly in a league of their own. Ornate Maldivian carvings, a Jacuzzi and interiors that are bound to take your breath away – these Water Bungalows are your dreams come true while you’re in the Maldives.

Over Water Suites

For those seeking some private moment away from the crowd, the over water suites here are designed to offer the intimacy and privacy one needs. These 24 wood-paneled units sit right over the shallow turquoise waters surrounding the island. Spacious interiors greet you as you walk in – a plush bedroom, large living room, and sprawling bathroom.

Juice Bar

Order a fresh tropical juice for your afternoons under the sun outside the beach bungalows. While the view is breathtaking the tropical heat is bound to make you thirsty and what better way to cool off than with a chilled juice? Fresh juice is also a great chaser for an island afternoon spent in the company of some rum or vodka.

Spa & Recreation

Chavana Spa

Legend tells of an old sage named Chavana who discovered the fountain of youth. After drinking from its waters, his appearance regained its youth almost instantly. The old sage went on to marry a beautiful, young princess.

Aptly named, the Chavana Spa at Dhonveli comes with many treatments and a range of spa products to revitalize, rejuvenate and reawaken the young at heart. The spa features specialized Balinese therapists, invigorating treatments and the internationally renowned Elemis brand of products. Bright island oranges decorate the spa’s interiors combining soothing Balinese music and 4 treatment rooms for the many specialized massages we have on offer.

Swimming Pool

Swimming only in the ocean can be a little exhausting sometimes when you have to fights the currents and waves – only to come up with sand all over you and a wave that crashes you to shore. So why not give the ocean a break and dip into our freshwater swimming pool? Located on the West end of the island between the tennis courts and our sunset bar, the poolside is also a great place to lounge and sip on cocktails to while away a lazy island afternoon.
