The anticipation of your spirited destination kick starts with an exhilarating 25-minute speedboat ride to an island 13 km away from Malé. Buzzing with cultural excursions and marine life in the midst of the North Malé Atoll, Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives promises a delightful holiday, packed with a tropical punch!

The island resort in the Maldives is home to world-famous surf spot Pasta Point – a dream site for surf enthusiasts across the globe. Named after an Italian bistro that was once located in the same area, this surf spot is described as the “wave-machine” of the North Malé Atoll, due to its consistent wave production, typically 4-6 feet in height.


Located atop an aquamarine lagoon is your secluded hideaway. The Residences at Kudadoo Maldives Private Island showcase thoughtfully curated interiors and exteriors.  They bring about the freedom of time, space and unhindered connections. An environmentally conscious design, sheer comfort and the utmost privacy fuse together in precious moments of indulgence. 


For the ultimate in romantic escapes, secluded hideaways or corporate retreats, Kudadoo’s 15 residences and the island’s facilities are available to be reserved for exclusive use in its entirety.


The dining options consist of three buffet restaurants and four bars, each with their own range of local and international cuisines, and unique atmosphere.

    Escape to Fun Island

    An island of both activity and lavish relaxation, Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives is a beautiful tropical island resort, offering exclusive access to the classic Pasta Point surf break. There is something for everyone in this exotic paradise – whether you bring the family along, or want to visit with a group of friends or even your significant other. Stunning Over-water suites, couples’ spa treatments, sunset cruises, and private, dreamy dinners on the white sand beach are yours to be had when you stay with us.

    Release your inner adrenaline junkie, as you whip across the water on a Jet Ski, glide over the waves water skiing or windsurfing, or embark on a catamaran ride. If you’d rather dip below the surface than skim over the top, sign up for a diving course at our dive centre, or simply drop in for some leisurely snorkelling.

    When you want to simply unwind while the others are occupied, try a soothing foot massage followed by a pedicure treat, or venture into the open sea and slip into a meditative mood for some calm fishing or dolphin watching. Afterwards, your well-appointed room will welcome your return – the perfect haven of tranquillity after a busy day of chilling out!

    Having worked up an appetite out on the surf, you will love the various dining options, including the all-you-can-eat buffets available for each feast! The restaurants and bars at Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives give our guests ample selection for both food and drinks.

    • Wonderful Place with Perfect People

      I can say that… I have never been to a place where people can make you feel so welcome as the hosts of Cinnamon Dhonveli. I travel a lot, and it is not my first time in Maldives either, but it is for sure the best guest interaction I have ever experienced.

      The hotel is very clean and rooms are well-equipped, spacious and with a modern design. I am here with my family and I could not wait to write this review. Most of the times I wait until I finish the journey, but this time I got super impressed and I was too excited to wait. We stay in two water bungalows which offer great accommodation, watching the sunrise every morning, checking on the beautiful marine creatures and listening to the sound of water while I fall asleep.

      From the moment we arrived here we met Sara from Guest Relations, who welcomed us with opened arms, and made us feel like we are her friends and not just some new guests. She checked on us a few times to make sure that we are having a great time and that everything is perfect.

      Tonight we celebrated my parents’ wedding anniversary, and it was incredible what beautiful surprises were prepared for them, starting from a beautifully decorated room, to a wonderful table setup, cake and a stunning wish from the Cinnamon team. We are grateful to Mrs. Sheila from Front Office for her dedication to making our holiday unforgettable, and to Mr. Hassan for taking part of this whole surprise.

      Every single staff member is incredibly polite and friendly. The Cinnamon team builds up to a flawless 5 star quality experience. I definitely recommend it.

    • Fantastic 2week vacation

      What a fantastic place, we stayed in a water bungalow for the first week but for the second week were upgraded to a water suite. I would definitely recommend paying that extra money to stay in the beautiful suites. The pool,swim up bar, restaurant that are exclusive for the overwater suites are all excellent, the views are stunning and the sea life you see from your own terrace is incredible. Need to say a big thankyou to Biplob who kepted the room spotlessly clean, Satah who is always cheerful and so helpful. Mahesh who made the cocktails so tasty and such a lovely friendly person and all of the kitchen/waiters. It’s our last day today and so sad to leave, highly recommend to anyone. Thankyou Cinnamon Dhonveli

    • Wonderful place for the new year celebration

      I travelled as a solo traveller to the resort between the 27 th of december to the 3rd of January. I enjoyed my stay and the new year gala party was fantastic. The restaurant Waiter Niyaz was very nice, ı did not eat curry food so the cook cooked grilled meat and fish for me everyday. The resort is well prepared for covid 19 restrictions, the entertainment daily is not sufficient. They could work on that. Overall ı had a good time
