Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives-Water Suites, Chaaya Island
Amazing overwater suite
We spent 2 nights on this beautiful idyllic island and stayed in the beautiful overwater suites which were stunning. Our room was also amazing, so clean and luxurious and the bathroom in the over water suite was amazing and having a bath while overlooking the ocean was stunning , we absolutely loved our balcony where we spent most of our evenings watching the sunset. perfect for seeing lots of fish, sharks and rays. Great to snorkel from as well. The staff were all amazing and very helpful whenever needed and the food is excellent along with the restaurant staff. Thanks so much for the wonderful memories.

A gem in the Indian Ocean
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome, relaxed and like nothing was too much to ask. The staff really went the extra mile to make us feel at home. The fresh buffet changed every meal to reflect different cuisines and never disappointed. Our over-water suite gave us the opportunity to watch sunrise over the lagoon and the wildlife the Maldives has to offer - reef sharks, rays and even the odd turtle. An unforgettable experience. Simply beautiful. Would definitely stay again.

Fantastic 5!
This was an awesome experience, the best break and holiday I have ever had.! A special thanks to Susan for her outstanding hospitality in checking us in to our room. Patricia also went out of her way on every occasions! Chef Manish and Khair were always on the best of form! We enjoyed having chats as well as tantalizing our tastebuds. Shelly provided us with the most fantastic DIY salads. We will definitely be back Regards from the Hajat family
