Spent the last week at Dhonveli and cannot recommend it enough. The rooms were great, both the Beach Bungalow and the Water Suite we were given as a free upgrade were spacious, clean and serviced twice daily. Food was excellent with a wide range of choices everyday, snacks available in between main meals. Various nationalities and age groups including some...

What an amazing place! We've never felt so relaxed in our lives, we stayed in an overwater suite which we highly recommend and it was bliss. Waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean and having your own private deck for sunbathing was just perfection. He staff are very well dressed and friendly, the food is very tasty...

We went to Cinnamon for our honeymoon. We have notified the hotel that it was our honeymoon a week prior to coming, but also when we booked the hotel in August.
