Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives
This peaceful aquatic paradise is home to a bevy of marine life, including the magnificent nurse shark. Harmless to humans, these unhurried creatures can grow up to 10 feet long and form an impressive sight as they glide leisurely along the reef. Kids will love these up-close-and-personal experiences with nature at this pristine atoll. With minimal interference from boats and planes, wildlife is more inclined to visit.
Even our Over-water villas and suites have a sinuous walkway that, from above, forms a shape reminiscent of a stingray!
When you are turning in for the day, recline in one of our 90 remarkably spacious rooms. The sweeping views from each and every chic room at Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives are cleverly complemented by the airy, open, Italian-styled interior. In our water villas, it is nothing but you and the open sea! Throughout the hotel, each and every accent echoes the movements and natural tones of the ocean’s depths, so feel free to go with the flow…
For a more relaxing activity, consider the resort spa, and book an appointment for an indulgent massage or any other special spa treatment. Meals are never dull with our wide array of dining options. Both local and international fare is entertained, so you can opt for something exotic, or relish the taste of a well-loved dish. If you are looking for something more romantic, we will be only too happy to prepare a more customized dining experience in a secluded location, for example, on our white sand beaches.
The most treasured things in life are said to arrive in small packages, and, at 5 hectares, this glittering 5-star private island retreat is no exception. Secreted away in the quiet Vaavu Atoll, Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives is a short seaplane (or speedboat, if you prefer) ride away from Malé, and will hand you all the breathing space from reality that you desire.
This luxury island resort lies in a strategic position in the Vaavu Atoll, ensuring access to all the best dive sites in the area. Snorkeling or scuba diving at the house reef are highly recommended, particularly our one-of-a-kind ‘dive with sharks’ excursion. There are also other water-bound activities we have lined up for your enjoyment, including a sunset cruise on a local dhoni. Families with younger children are also encouraged to let them take part in the resort’s kids club at this family friendly resort, which includes games at the children’s play area.
The moment you step through your front door, you are treated to a view of the ocean so crisp, that it could be a painting. Some would say our rooms are so enticing that, on a rainy day, it is a delight to stay indoors, order some great food via room service, and binge Netflix through our free Wi-Fi when you are not swimming alongside the marine life from your overwater terrace, of course!
All our guests are treated to thoughtful amenities that will make them feel more at home. Keep your belongings secure in your in-villa safe, watch satellite channels through your room’s LED TV, rest serenely on a king size bed with extra bed facilities, control your comfort level with air-conditioning settings, and wake up to the aroma of our complimentary instant tea and coffee making facilities.
Each bathroom is stocked with bath amenities to last throughout your stay, along with your choice of hot and cold water. Check your wardrobe for beach and bath towels, raincoats, lifejackets and in-room slippers, and pop over to the minibar for ample refreshments. To use or charge electrical devices, note that all room voltages are 220/240V and adaptors will be provided on request. All electrical sockets are universal.
Cinnamon Velifushi is about 35-minute speedboat transfer from Male International Airport.
