Lovely quiet piece of paradise
Pros: We stayed in a beach bungalow and it was perfect. Big comfortable bed. Lovely outdoor space. Felt really private. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly and couldn’t do enough to make sure you had everything you needed. Lots of trips to enjoy. The snorkelling twice a day was a blessing.
Cons: Unfortunately there is no natural reef on the island and the water is very shallow. But the 2 snorkelling trips a day made up for it. The mosquitoes are horrendous. Most nights I was the all you can eat buffet. So remember to bring plenty of creams!

We have had a wonderful weekly stay, enjoying sound of waves, peaceful walks on the beach and snorkeling. Resort is supe
Pros: Beautiful resort, wonderful on water bungalows. Stuff is amazing - smiled, talkative and helpful. Rooms made-up twice a day. Great place for peaceful stay. Food was great, yet at some point boring and repetitive. Hotel helps with organisation of whole stay, yet it is hard to contact them.
Cons: Unfortunately, we had to switch bungalow due to cockroaches. Additionally, resort is occupied mostly by Brits - and these, under 40s, do not know how to behave and have zero respect to other quests.

Pros: Our vacation was fantastic. The service was excellent and everyone was very very kind. Special thanks to the cooks for the delicious food. The cleaner of our room was leaving us chocolate candies and flowers on the bed. Our waiter Hussain was extremely helpful. And my favorite was Wilma from the reception who was the heart of the resort. As for one of the managers he was with his bicycle everywhere on the island making sure personally that everything with the guests is ok. There wasn't a thing that we weren’t spoiled with. I will definitely visit again!!

Paradise Found: Our stay at Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa felt like stepping into paradise
Pros: Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa Review - July 2023 Paradise Found: Our stay at Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa felt like stepping into paradise. The island offered the classic Maldives experience with its stunning turquoise lagoon, powdery white sand, delicious cuisine, and impeccable service. While the marine life at first seemed sparse, exploring revealed a diverse array of fish, some cleverly hiding among the stones. From the warm welcome to the farewell, the staff's attentiveness made our vacation truly special. Platinum Island Peace: For a tranquil escape, we recommend Platinum Island. It's an adults-only oasis with a small footprint, offering a private pool and bar. Few guests ventured beyond the restaurant or pool, making it ideal for those seeking solitude.
Cons: Evening entertainment needs more variety.

Pros: We did not need any travel agency, because the hotel took care of absolutely all periods of our stay: from arrival at the airport, transfer with sea -airplane and departure. There is a doctor on the Island resort. The entire hotel team works efficiently and helps each other. The island is small, but very beautiful and green, the nature is very natural. There are a lot of fish, sharks, stingrays, crabs! And personal treat the island very carefully: they plant new plants, remove rotten branches, and disinfect them from insects every evening. Pros: privacy everywhere: in the water villa, in the restaurant, on the beach and in the bar: you don’t feel a crowd of people, everything is quiet and peaceful. The food, drinks, water bungalow rooms are all wonderful and this can be read in most reviews on Google and Booking. And it's truth! What needs to be improved: Entertainment. especially the repertoire of movies on the beach under the night sky. The situation of the evening was saved by live music and a group of wonderful real voices. They also offer a Karaoke evenings. Plus the creative initiatives of the senior bartender Alban from Sri Lanka such as crab races, cocktail evenings. But within 15 days the program was repeated several times. We had a terrible situation with cleaning of our Water Villa: our room boy was so lazy and inexperienced that the room was always uncleaned, the beds were not changed, the garbage was not removed:( but the situation was corrected by his colleague, we didn’t even complain about the previous one, but everything was cleaned and washed to a shine and an apology was made that there were problems before with the cleaning. I assume that there is quality control of cleaning and they themselves made the appropriate conclusions. But we would be more happy if problem with cleaning can be earlier escalated or not appearing at all! Very unreasonable prices in spa and a-la carte restaurants.
Cons: Synthetic pillows and sheets are not applicable for this hot and wet Maldivien climate. We had problems with cleaning, but it was solved at the end of our stay.

Замечательный отдых, который оправдал все оживания. Вилла, морской мир, кухня, обслуживание - мы остались довольны.
Pros: ◦ Два раза в день на лодке вывозят на риф, бесплатно выдают маску и ласты на весь период проживания. Точек с рифами несколько, если попросить, то могут возить на разные. Риф богатый на рыбок, но не очень красочный. Мы ездили с удовольствием, хотя вода иногда была мутная и видимость плохая. ◦ Очень вкусное разнообразное меню. Каждый день несколько видов мяса: курица, говядина, баранина, свинина, в том числе и стейки. Большой выбор карри, гарниров, овощей и фруктов. Один раз за 8 ночей попали на ужин морепродуктов, это было шикарно: рыба, мидии, креветки и т.д. Слабенькие десерты, но при наличии фруктов нам это было неважно. Хорошее и быстрое обслуживание официантов. ◦ Вилла в реальности просторнее, чем на фото. Современный дизайн, уютная веранда и эффектное окно в полу. Номер убирали 2 раза в день, докладывали напитки и меняли полотенца. Прямо с виллы можно зайти в воду и посмотреть рыбок, но максимальная глубина примерно 1.5 метра и только в часы прилива, во время отлива воды ниже колена. Дно усыпано коралловой крошкой, поэтому плавать только в ластах или аквашузах. Морской мир у вилл не очень богатый, но все равно увлекательный. Так же у лобби с другой стороны острова есть пляж, воды там всегда по колено, а рыбок нет, не рассчитывайте там плавать. В этом смысле виллы на воде намного выигрышнее вилл на пляже. ◦ Каждый вечер в лобби было развлекательное мероприятие и приятная атмосфера. В основном контингент - это европейцы, русскоязычных гостей мало. ◦ В стандартный all inclusive входит не только вино и пиво, но и коктейли, и крепкий алкоголь - все качественное и вкусное. ◦ Wi-Fi отлично ловит на всей территории острова, можно не покупать сим карту в аэропорту.
Cons: Цены на спа нам показались высокими, от 120$ за час массажа на человека. Песок на всем острове с коралловой крошкой, босиком ходить поначалу непривычно и немного больно

Tops ARRIVAL - so so nice. When you step out of the seaplane (a must experience) you get warmly greeted. Check in is very smooth, you get your own personal water bottle (to reduce plastic), then a quick golf cart tour of the island. Even with departure it is great, once you arrive in Malé someone from Cinnamon is waiting for you to show the way. WATER VILLA - wow! Our bed was beautifully decorated on day 3 because of our honeymoon and we also got a complimentary delicious shiraz and fruits. Very spacious villa, big comfy bed, good working ac, big bathroom with isolated toilet and shower. And the deck with amazing views! There are 2 very comfy sunbeds, a nice hammock and a cozy couch. From the deck there are metal stairs to descend into the ocean. The metal stairs get really hot, but you can cool it with a water sprinkler next to it. The water depth is between knee level to hip level. Snorkling from the villa was much nicer than expected. Corals are mostly dead though. And the sea bottom is sharp because of coral shards. RESORT - very very friendly and helpful staff, perfect wifi everywhere (!), there is complimentary snorkling trips 2x a day to a nearby reef (10 minutes) FOOD/DRINKS - sooo delicious!! There is a lot of variation, so we were definitely not bored after 6 days. Sometimes the mocktails where a bit too sweet. CLEANING - Room cleaning 2x a day, minibar gets refilled 1x a day. Beers and softdrinks in the minibar included in the all inclusive package. From the main bar a lot is included. SPA - a must if you visit! Very expensive though. Very relaxing and good quality, they even let you choose a massage oil. I recommend the mandara massage (with 2 therapists ————————————————— Tips COMMUNICATION - before arrival was extremely slow and difficult. I had to e-mail 3 (!) times in a span of 2 weeks before getting an answer to a simple question after making a reservation. When I refused to pay the invoice without an answer suddenly I received an answer with an apology within hours. DIVE SHOP - I was doubting if I wanted to dive, so I went by the dive shop. The diving shop staff (sadly he didn’t have a name tag, but he was a middle aged bald man) was so grumpy and rude (let the door fall behind him so it smacked me), that he made my choice very easy to not dive. WATER VILLA - 2 out of 5 nights we couldn’t sleep well because of weather conditions (wind and rain), it probably could have been avoided with better sound isolation of the roof. The water villa have a tented roof that lets light in, but also sounds.. So if you’re a light sleeper you wake up at 06:00 because of the light. It would have been nice if there is a glass ceiling isolating the upper part of the room because of the sound, but maybe also with an option to make the glass dark so that you can choose what you prefer. Or just close it up, you can always open the huge curtains/deck doors if you like light/sounds. The last half of our stay we only had hot water for a couple of minutes when showering. When calling the reception a mechanic arrived within 5 minutes. However, the problem wasn’t solved. BENEFITS - When you book the room through the Cinnamon website you get 2 complimentary benefits (you can choose from romantic beach 4 course dinner, couple massage 45 minutes, or from 2 excursions). It states so clearly on the website and a confirming email later on. However, once you arrive on the island it’s like it doesn’t exist and it isn’t communicated to the reception staff. so when checking in nobody mentions it, even though we had already emailed our preferences. So, you yourselves have to proactively arrange these benefits. It would have been nice if our preferences would have been mentioned when checking in and arranged. BUFFET TIMES - We would have appreciated if breakfast was until 10:00 (instead of 09:30) and dinner would have started at 19:00 (instead of 19:30) EXCURSIONS - very few and expensive. I really wanted to do a luxurious castaway experience, but the resort doesn’t offer any sandbank activies.

My family and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa, and I feel compelled to share our extraordinary experiences. The water bungalows are the highlight of the resort. The architecture is not just beautiful but also offers a unique experience with a glass floor, through which we observe an array of marine life like sharks, manta rays, stingrays, and countless other fishes. It was like living above an aquarium! As someone not very confident in deep-water swimming, I found the shallow lagoon perfect for snorkeling. The abundance of fish in these safe waters was nothing short of magical. Chef Sahoo is the best. His ability to cater to specific dietary requirements was nothing short of remarkable. He prepared a variety of Indian dishes that met our unique needs, such as no onion and no garlic, which is not an easy feat in itself. The food was not only tailored to our dietary restrictions but was also infused with a level of creativity and flavor that elevated each meal into a memorable dining experience. Each day, Chef Sahoo surprised us with different culinary delights. From perfectly made dosas to comforting khichdi, he ensured variety and taste were never compromised. It was apparent that he put his heart and soul into his cooking, and this passion was reflected in every dish he served. His ability to consistently maintain high standards and introduce us to new flavors was a highlight of our stay. Saleem, who served us for our eight-night stay, deserves a special mention. His service was impeccable - always with a smile and an uncanny ability to anticipate our needs. The moment we finished a drink, the next one was ready, as if by magic. We needed to use the resort’s clinic, and it was here that we were thoroughly impressed. The doctor at the clinic was simply amazing. In a situation that could easily have been stressful, especially being away from home, the doctor provided outstanding care. Her professionalism, combined with a genuinely caring approach, made a significant difference in our experience. The overall staff friendliness at the resort was remarkable. They made us feel not just welcomed but truly cared for. It's rare for me to write reviews, but the exceptional service from Sahoo and Saleem compelled me to share our experience. The drinks at the resort were another highlight, with the Pina Colada being my personal favorite. The watermelon juice was also memorable and something I still find myself craving. A small suggestion for improvement would be the inclusion of separate deep hair conditioners in the bathrooms. The provided shampoo and conditioner combination is decent, but with the effects of salt and pool water, an additional deep conditioning option would be a welcome addition. It's worth mentioning that the beach not expansive still offers a peaceful retreat. It provides a tranquil spot to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the Maldives. We had set realistic expectations and found the beach adequate but not extraordinary. Just want to end by saying, the exceptional service, stunning location, and attention to detail in every aspect make it a must-visit destination. Our stay was nothing short of perfect, and I can't wait to return.

Zugegeben, wir waren anfangs skeptisch, ob uns eine kleine Insel mitten im Nirgendwo nicht nach 3 Tagen zu langweilig wird. Aber diese Angst war unbegründet! Nach 10 Tagen hätten wir gut und gerne noch länger bleiben können. Unser Strandbungalow auf der Platinum Insel mit direktem Strandzugang war bereits ein Highlight für sich. Doch unser Roomboy Humaidh toppte das alles. Er las uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen ab, beantwortete uns jede Frage über Land und Leute, gab uns Einblick in sein Leben und machte uns immer wieder eine riesige Freude mit einem liebevoll und unglaublich kreativ dekoriertem Schlafzimmer, Muscheln oder Gute Nacht Schokolade. Hatten wir genug von Wasser und Unterwasserwelt machten wir uns auf an die Bar, wo wir von jedem Barkeeper zuvorkommend und freundlich und immer mit einem Lächeln und Witz auf den Lippen leckere Cocktails und Säfte kredenzt bekamen. Unseren Hunter stillten wir im Restaurant, in dem man täglich mit einer unglaublichen Auswahl an verschiedensten süßen und herzhaften Leckereien beglückt würde. Doch nicht nur das Essen war etwas ganz besonders, sondern auch das Restaurantpersonal wie Nizzah, sowie die Köche Kelum, Nilantha und Charuna. Sie wussten nicht nur bereits nach wenigen Tagen, welche kulinarischen Vorlieben man hatte, sondern bereicherten jeden Abend mit netten Gesprächen und Tipps. Keine Frage gab es, die man ihnen nicht stellen könnte. Eine so familiäre Atmosphäre haben wir in einem Urlaub noch nie erlebt. Auch alle anderen Mitarbeiter, die wir nicht alle namentlich kennen lernen konnten, hielten diese tolle, familiäre und entspannte Stimmung aufrecht und waren überaus freundlich und zuvorkommend. Vor allem unsere Bootscrew und Guides auf Ausflügen wie Delfin oder Hai Watching, Turtle Snorkeking, Besuch von Einheimischen Inseln oder weiteren Schnorchel Trips machten jeden Tag zu einem besonderen Tag. Wir waren selten so wehmütig am Abreisetag. Auch wenn wir uns auf den erneuten Flug mit dem Wasserflieger und den absolut lässigen Barfuß -Piloten freuten. Cinnamon hakura hurra - eine absolute Empfehlung! Wir kommen gerne wieder!

La habitación sobre el agua es espectacular. Es una habitación muy amplia, no le falta detalle ,la cama es grande y muy cómoda, el suelo de cristal es increíble y se ven pasar los peces a la perfección.

TODO el personal es maravilloso, son muy educados y están pendiente para ayudarte en cualquier cosa que necesites. Era el cumpleaños de mi madre y tuvieron en detalle de llevarnos un pastel y darle un recuerdo. Por poner una pega, las excursiones/ deportes de agua y spa eran muy caros. Hubiera hecho alguna excursión o alquilado un kayak si no fuera por el precio. Reservamos la noche de barbacoa con dj en la playa y fue un acierto. Toda la comida estaba muy buena y el lugar era precioso y muy bien ambientado. También hicimos el crucero al atardecer y nos encantó! La organización del transfer también fue perfecta! Sin duda, han sido unas vacaciones maravillosas y volveríamos a repetir si pudiéramos !!

This resort is absolutely superb, there is no better word to describe it. The rooms are exquisite, the staff are absolutely phenomenal, the location is unbeatable and the value for money was second to none. I scored a last minute deal that was absolutely unbelievable. The overwater bungalows are stunning, being able to step foot from your room into a crystal clear haven of aquatic life was surreal. We saw numerous sharks, stingrays, barracudas, and even formed a hilarious relationship with a rather antagonistic triggerfish nesting nearby. Sometimes all-inclusive buffets can get a little boring - this was absolutely not the case. The food was INCREDIBLE. Home-style, fresh, and most importantly - a variety of food every day that was honestly overwhelming. I put on 3kg in a week because I had to keep going back for seconds... and thirds! The chefs and the wait staff at the restaurant were fantastic, a special shoutout to Hanan who looked after us every day with impeccable service. Also, for those who like a drink, don't fret - they definitely do a strong pour here unlike many other all-inclusive resorts! We had a mix up occur with our bill resulting in our transfers being overcharged. When we realised, this was amended instantly and the staff went above and beyond to ensure everything else with our stay was perfect. I can't fault the staff at all, everyone from housekeeping to reception to security always greet you with a smile and drop anything to assist you. We took the free snorkeling excursion, funnily enough we saw far more interesting sea creatures from our bungalow than we did offshore! Again, the overwater bungalows are totally worth the extra money. All in all, a 10/10 stay and I will definitely return. I will be recommending this resort to literally everyone I know. It's THAT good.

Wir sind begeistert von diesem Hotel sowie von Personal. Jeder einzelne ist vollends bemüht jedem Gast den Aufenthalt so schön als möglich zu gestalten. Angefangen von den tollen und sehr sauberen Wasserbungalows bis hin zu den Exkursionen ist dieses Resort ein tolles Erlebnis. Abgesehen von den atemberaubenden Aussicht zum Sonnenuntergang haben wir direkt vor dem Bungalow alles an Meereslebewesen gesehen, was man sich nur vorstellen kann. Die Unterwasservielfalt ist einzigartig. Badeschuhe sind sehr zu empfehlen - Flossen und Taucherbrille kann gratis im Divecenter ausgeliehen werden. Das Buffet ist sehr vielfältig und die Küche immer bemüht jedem Gast alle Wünsche zu erfüllen. Der Service war witzig und freundlich. Unser Kellner Saleem hat ab dem 2. Tag bereits automatisch die von uns gewünschten Getränke gebracht - wir mussten gar nichts mehr sagen. Zudem hat er uns auch viel über die Malediven erzählt. Wir hatten mit ihm wirklich einen tollen Kellner. Die Bar bietet tolle Cocktails - wenn auch manchmal die Mischung recht kräftig ist :-) Aber wir haben dies dann einfach dazu gesagt. Es gibt abends immer ein anderes Programm, was wir toll fanden. Ebenso möchten wir Khabib unseren Roomboy (Bungalow 310) sehr loben. Er ist sauber, immer witzig und zuvorkommend. Das haben wir sehr genossen. Danke Khabib! Wir können das Hotel wärmstens empfehlen!

The Hakuraa Huraa Resort in the Maldives offers an unparalleled experience, starting with the seamless organization of the seaplane journey to the warm welcome adorned with tropical necklaces and refreshing cold water, exuding genuine hospitality from the outset. The Bungalows are a testament to perfection, with impeccable cleanliness and stunning views that elevate the stay. The mesmerizing ocean provides a daily spectacle of fish, including sharks, adding an extra touch of wonder to the stay. The all-inclusive dining experience is nothing short of amazing, with a diverse array of delectable meals that introduce guests to a variety of culinary delights. The standout feature, however, is the exceptional staff—beyond comparison. The warmth, friendliness, and genuine kindness exhibited by the staff, exemplified by the remarkable @ShiFaan, make guests feel like a part of a caring family. ShiFaan's continuous attentiveness and willingness to assist create a personalized touch that enhances the overall experience.❤️ thanks alot❤️ The Hakuraa Huraa Resort's attention to detail during your honeymoon was truly extraordinary. The thoughtful gesture of sending fruit, wine, and bed decorations added an extra layer of romance and enchantment to your stay. Thanks for the room boy @Afey for the amazing flowers❤️ Moreover, the commitment to cleanliness extends beyond the accommodations to the beach and bar areas, where the flawless service of the dedicated staff contributes to a perfect and friendly environment. In essence, the Hakuraa Huraa Resort is a haven where meticulous organization, breathtaking surroundings, delectable cuisine, and outstanding staff converge to create an unforgettable and familial retreat in the heart of the Maldives. At the end, we will miss everything here ❤️

Вечером выплывают мурены и другие морские существа В домике есть абсолютно все, что только может понадобиться (чай, кофе, туалетные принадлежности, дождевики, жилеты, утюг, даже коврик для йоги и маски для сна, в общем даже больше, чем нужно). Маски для снорлинга можно тоже взять и вернуть в конце отпуска. Соседей не видно и не слышно. Есть личная терраса со спуском в воду. А внутри стеклянный пол. Уборка дважды в день Питание - сказка.

I recently stayed at Cinnamon Hakurra Hurra, attracted by the promise of an 'all-inclusive' experience, expecting a carefree vacation where everything was taken care of. Unfortunately, the term 'all-inclusive' seems to have been used rather loosely here, leading to a series of disappointments. Firstly, the minibar situation was misleading. At most resorts, 'all-inclusive' encompasses the minibar, which is typically restocked daily with snacks, sodas, and sometimes even spirits. At the resort, however, we were surprised to find additional charges for minibar items. This was an unwelcome departure from the norm and felt quite nickel-and-diming. Furthermore, the limitation on where one can enjoy an ice cream or a snack, only exacerbates the feeling of being nickel-and-dimed, which is not something one expects from an 'all-inclusive' resort. Guests should be free to enjoy the full range of amenities without being constrained by hidden charges or limited venues. As for the wine service, there is a notable gap in the handling and presentation of the wine, which significantly impacts the enjoyment. It's regrettable to find that the wine often tasted sour, suggesting it was not stored or served correctly. Wine enthusiasts can tell when a wine has not been handled with care, and this lack of expertise diminishes the dining experience. Moreover, it's important to note that while reviews may reflect personal opinions, they are the lifeblood of the hospitality industry. They offer honest feedback and hold the establishment to a standard that future guests expect. Therefore, it's crucial for Cinnamon hotels to address these issues sincerely. Regarding excursions, the prices were exorbitantly high, especially considering the remoteness of the location. While I understand that logistics may play a role in pricing of sea planes, charging double the price compared to other resorts is unjustifiable and leaves guests feeling exploited. Lastly, the monotony of the dining options is another area that needs immediate attention. A single restaurant serving the same menu throughout the week can turn 'all-inclusive' into a bland experience. The term 'all-inclusive' should mean just that—everything included without exception. If there are to be exclusions, I strongly suggest using the term 'full board' or being upfront about additional costs. The hidden fees not only affect guests' budgets but also their overall enjoyment and perception of the resort. My advice to fellow travelers is to consider paying a bit more at other resorts for a truly all-inclusive package. Otherwise, you might end up spending the same amount—or more—due to the additional costs that resort imposes, undermining the value of what could have been a fantastic getaway. Another extremely disappointing thing is there is not a single coral anywhere. You will hardly see any fish by the beach. If you don't swim, then you can't snorkel by the beach unlike other resorts-because you will see nothing. I hope cinnamon hotels takes this feedback to heart for the benefit of future guests. Transparency and genuine all-inclusive offerings will go a long way in enhancing the vacation experience and improving those all-important reviews.

We spent 2 weeks in the Maldives and this was our first resort of the two. A real Gem. From the moment we stepped foot on the Island until when we left from the Island the Staff was devoted to make this week an absolute dream experience throughout the week. We were welcomed by a committee and waved off when we left, room service twice a day and our Laundry cleaned and Ironed, at breakfast time from the 2nd day the staff just knew our preferred drinks, we did not have to ask for anything, it was just there. The bungalows on the platinum Island offered us more intimate experience and absolute fabulous experience with our own access to beach. The crew is never far away, very friendly, available and dedicated. The Food was fresh every day and there are so much delicious food options you would like to try and taste everything but that would not fit on your plate. Even for vegetarians you will have options offered to you and if you have a specific diet the staff in the Kitchen will be available to find a solution for you. I regret I didn't ask for some of the recipies, it was really delicious. A special thank you to Charuna, Bathiya and Nilantha from the kitchen , to Shakti from the bar, to our housekeeper but also to all the people who we didn't talk personally and who have been working hard behind the scenes to make this such a memorable stay, please keep this authentic spirit and thank you to the management for building this level of mindset. Perfect location for a nice break and definitely perfect location for a Honeymoon. We regret we did not just spent the 2 weeks with Cinnamon. We miss you and will not hesitate a minute should Cinnamon be available with our next vacation

So fulfilling and kind ! No words can relate to the wonderful service we received from him No complains of the room , it was an over water Villa which was a dream come true and did not disappoint! It was clean fresh and beautifully! however our shower water wouldn’t get hot jus stayed luke warm (I did inform housekeeping although no feedback) The resort is very well maintained all round and the gym was clean and user friendly !

Can’t describe enough of this property in words. It’s pure experience! Right from the second you step out of the sea plane you see happy faces ready to welcome you to the property with good music. The reception has choice of welcome drink for you. The check in is very easy and overall info about the property is explained real quick. We met one of the staff Ms Wilma there who guided us to our room. She was so charming and kind. She explained everything about the property. Later we met Mr Ahemad in the dive Center and he was another gem. He took me to a session of scuba dive and it was mind blowing. The food in the property is beyond expectation. You are given a separate table to sit for all three meals and you can stick with this throughout your stay. No wonder you will remember this stay for the rest of your life. Property is neatly maintained too. It was a pure blessing to stay in this property. Loads to love to each and every single staff of this hotel and the special one goes to Ms Wilma and Mr Ahemad. If you are looking for a stay just close your eyes and book this property as no more words can describe this property. Thank you🙏

Checking was very smooth with your own personal water bottle, to keep as a souvenir. Quick tour of the island on a golf buggy. Entrance to the bungalow, walking in was just as described. The place is amazing. The room was so relaxing. Inside/outside shower and toilet. Well stacked fridge with (sprits £7) each not free! 2 beers, coke, fanta, soda water and Tonic all free. Stocked daily. The room had everything you need. Iron, hair dryer, slippers & dressing gown. The breakfast/lunch and dinner restaurant was a stone through away. Opened 7.30, 12.00 & 6.30. If you got peckish the bar had smacks available. Personalised waiter who got to attend to you, so friendly. We have FB friends 😁 Hussain you made this holiday, your attentiveness was welcomed - Thank you so much. The people who made this holiday looking after us are just incredible.

Tops ARRIVAL - so so nice. When you step out of the seaplane (a must experience) you get warmly greeted. Check in is very smooth, you get your own personal water bottle (to reduce plastic), then a quick golf cart tour of the island. Even with departure it is great, once you arrive in Malé someone from Cinnamon is waiting for you to show the way. WATER VILLA - wow! Our bed was beautifully decorated on day 3 because of our honeymoon and we also got a complimentary delicious shiraz and fruits. Very spacious villa, big comfy bed, good working ac, big bathroom with isolated toilet and shower. The bathroom feels partly outside because of the open screens which was really nice. And the deck with amazing views! There are 2 very comfy sunbeds, a nice hammock and a cozy couch. From the deck there are metal stairs to descend into the ocean. The metal stairs get really hot, but you can cool it with a water sprinkler next to it. The water depth is between knee level to hip level. Snorkling from the villa was much nicer than expected, we saw a turtle, sting ray, black tip reef shark, parrot fish, etc. Corals are mostly dead though. And the sea bottom is sharp because of coral shards. RESORT - very very friendly and helpful staff, perfect wifi everywhere (!), there is complimentary snorkling trips 2x a day to a nearby reef (10 minutes) FOOD/DRINKS - sooo delicious!! There is a lot of variation, so we were definitely not bored after 6 days. Sometimes the mocktails where a bit too sweet. CLEANING - Room cleaning 2x a day, minibar gets refilled 1x a day. Beers and softdrinks in the minibar included in the all inclusive package. From the main bar a lot is included: cocktails, mocktails, soft drinks, beers, wines. SPA - a must if you visit! Very expensive though. Very relaxing and good quality, they even let you choose a massage oil. I recommend the mandara massage (with 2 therapists) ENTERTAINMENT - every day there is a fun different activity. Like crab racing, karaoke night, movie on the beach, etc. ——————————————— Tips COMMUNICATION - before arrival was extremely slow and difficult. I had to e-mail 3 (!) times in a span of 2 weeks before getting an answer to a simple question after making a reservation. When I refused to pay the invoice without an answer suddenly I received an answer with an apology within hours. DIVE SHOP - I was doubting if I wanted to dive, so I went by the dive shop. The diving shop staff (sadly he didn’t have a name tag, but he was a middle aged bald man) was so grumpy and rude (let the door fall behind him so it smacked me), that he made my choice very easy to not dive. WATER VILLA - 2 out of 5 nights we couldn’t sleep well because of weather conditions (wind and rain), it probably could have been avoided with better sound isolation of the roof. The water villa have a tented roof that lets light in, but also sounds.. So if you’re a light sleeper you wake up at 06:00 because of the light. It would have been nice if there is a glass ceiling isolating the upper part of the room because of the sound, but maybe also with an option to make the glass dark so that you can choose what you prefer. Or just close it up, you can always open the huge curtains/deck doors if you like light/sounds. The last half of our stay we only had hot water for a couple of minutes when showering. When calling the reception a mechanic arrived within 5 minutes. However, the problem wasn’t solved. BENEFITS - When you book the room through the Cinnamon website you get 2 complimentary benefits (you can choose from romantic beach 4 course dinner, couple massage 45 minutes, or from 2 excursions). It states so clearly on the website and a confirming email later on. However, once you arrive on the island it’s like it doesn’t exist. Even when checking in nobody mentions it, even though we had already emailed our preferences. So, you yourselves have to proactively arrange these benefits. It would have been nice if our preferences would have been mentioned when checking in and arranged. In general we felt as if what we had communicated before arrival wasn’t communicated at all to the reception staff. E.g. flight number for departure, other preferences. BUFFET TIMES - We would have appreciated if breakfast was until 10:00 (instead of 09:30) and dinner would have started at 19:00 (instead of 19:30) EXCURSIONS - very few and expensive. I really wanted to do a luxurious castaway experience, but the resort doesn’t offer any sandbank activies.

I'd prefer to call this a school of hospitality. There, you don't only earn your peaceful and joyful break, but also be amazed by the personalization they add to your stay! We've relished every moment. They paid attention to details. literally, they offer everything possible to make you feel home and be great friends to you! If you're wondering whether traveling to Maldives with an infant is a wise idea? Just go for it, they'll make sure your baby smiles all time! I'll start with the seaplane experience (although this is not managed by the resort). It is a 45 min flight. I wouldn’t call it hot as I read, but its ok with good ventilation. The plane doesn’t fly above islands, so don’t hope to see much. But I still prefer it over speed boat. Now the resort. Starting with the reception, there is a very kind team meeting & greeting you from the plane and offer your cool drinks while the seamless check-in process completes. You'll be escorted to your stay location in a buggy. Another thing that I appreciate, in their briefing, aside from the information and handouts provided, they put a lot of transparency letting you know what is covered and what is not in your plan. You don’t get any surprises later. The water villa (bungalow) was very clean and greatly maintained. Air-conditioning is great, and all amenities are available. Liked the floor glass view a lot! You may get lucky to spot the cute reef shark or a turtle in a rainy night! The water area ensures privacy to a very large extent. The main restaurant: The team was consistently exceeding expectation! Food was variant from different cuisines. Dietary information are mentioned if you are allergic to anything. Besides the many dishes, salad bar always had plenty of delicious option. They always have 2 live cooking stations at least. 2 soup option (always changing), multi bread and spreads. Generally, You'd always come across new items that you haven’t experienced in previous days of stay. The team and the chef were thankfully looking after our child and preparing freshly made purees. They were reminding us to select what he has to eat in next event to take into their plan! What more can you ask for?! The team was very attentive, smiling and very kind. Doing their best for you to enjoy quality time. One thing caught my attention is you are allocated a table from your first visit, that will be yours until you leave. This develops concept of guests neighborhood whom you can build good relationship with and share good times. The beach bar is very cozy, the pool design is marvelous. Always clean and the team there is great too. Plenty of relaxation areas to enjoy your drinks. Cabanas are free (unlike many all inclusive resorts I’ve seen) Room keeping was regular. Room was perfectly being re-arranged. Your assigned attendant will quickly support you with any additional need when required. A few useful notes: - You can borrow snorkeling gear for free during your stay, but remember to return them one day before your departure. - There are 2 snorkeling trips that runs daily without pre-booking. 10 am and 3 PM and are free. - We went there in November, unsure about other months, but the humidity attracts mosquitos. Although the resort does their best to do pest control, I'd still remind you to get your repellent. - I wouldn’t call it a pricy resort. You can opt for an BBQ dinner event (out of package) with a great dining setup just for $60. - If you don't consume alcohol, you can avail selection of fresh juices. - There is no tipping policy/practice. However, the team would be very happy to see you appreciating their unconditional - very high efforts to please you.. Following, are remarkable individuals whom I'd like to express my gratitude to. There are many more but apologies for missing their names.

This October was our 4th trip back to Hakuraa Huraa, and I can honestly say that this resort gets better and better. What we've also noticed is that they keep staff. If the workers are happy the customers are happy, so big thanks to the management for producing great work ethics. The knock on is invaluable. If you are a "repeater" the fuss that the staff give you is heart-warming. When we arrived this year we had numerous familiar faces come to welcome us. We felt like royalty when the GM (Rajeeva Rajapakse) came to greet us off the seaplane. He was accompanied by Customer Relations (Wilma), Head Chef (Dhanushka) and girls from the Mandara Spa, to name but a few. We had a fabulous message on our bed from our Room Boy (Nasiea) who was simply outstanding. We would also like to say special thanks to the following staff went above and beyond: Laboo Ab Lathif Lathif has welcomed us many times with his infectious smile and warm hand shake. This man is so on the ball with organisation and communication. If he can arrange it, he will. Nothing is too much for Lathif. He's a true gentleman and great spirit. Perera Dhanushka Head Chef on Platinum Island, and an absolute asset to the resort. We have built up a wonderful friendship over our visits and, again, nothing is too much trouble. He takes time to find out what you're enjoying and what your preferences are. He's simply magic at preparing fresh food fit for a King. Kelum Jeewantha Welagedara The highlight of our day was seeing Kelum! His kitchen skills are incredible. Sri Lankan street food is his speciality (and now my favourite). He cooks fresh fish with such flavour and precision. We feel honoured to eat his fabulous dishes. Hannan Abdull Hannan is so worthy of our appreciation. His waiting skills is second to none. He learns very quickly what you like (and when). We missed Hannan's service this year on Platinum Island but understood that his skills were needed in another part of the resort. Maybe next October you'll come back to Platinum? Fingers crossed, Hannan. Hussain Yazdeeh Masood Hussain is a very polite young man who couldn't do enough for us. New this season to serving on Platinum Island and very much rated. He's a happy member of staff who loves his music. Hussain Raidh For 3 years in a row we've had the pleasure of Raidh serving us. His English is superb, and every effort is made to ensure you have everything you need/want. An incredibly polite gentleman who's local knowledge helped us to extract the best from our holiday. Now a valuable waiter in the Crab Restaurant. You must pay him a visit!! Nandana Prasad First class bar tender on Platinum Island. Always welcoming and attentive. If your glass is empty he'll ensure your enjoying another as soon as! We love the relaxed and calming influence he has over the poolside bar. Acknowledgements also expressed to Assadh Shafeek for his professional service. Thudihtha HuMey with her people skills (and smile) in reception. And not forgetting the lovely Nilantha Gunasekara who works incredibly hard in the kitchen to ensure that food is tasty and plentiful. Thank you so much for giving us fantastic memories. See you next year!!

Zugegeben, wir waren anfangs skeptisch, ob uns eine kleine Insel mitten im Nirgendwo nicht nach 3 Tagen zu langweilig wird. Aber diese Angst war unbegründet! Nach 10 Tagen hätten wir gut und gerne noch länger bleiben können. Unser Strandbungalow auf der Platinum Insel mit direktem Strandzugang war bereits ein Highlight für sich. Doch unser Roomboy Humaidh toppte das alles. Er las uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen ab, beantwortete uns jede Frage über Land und Leute, gab uns Einblick in sein Leben und machte uns immer wieder eine riesige Freude mit einem liebevoll und unglaublich kreativ dekoriertem Schlafzimmer, Muscheln oder Gute Nacht Schokolade. Hatten wir genug von Wasser und Unterwasserwelt machten wir uns auf an die Bar, wo wir von jedem Barkeeper zuvorkommend und freundlich und immer mit einem Lächeln und Witz auf den Lippen leckere Cocktails und Säfte kredenzt bekamen. Unseren Hunter stillten wir im Restaurant, in dem man täglich mit einer unglaublichen Auswahl an verschiedensten süßen und herzhaften Leckereien beglückt würde. Doch nicht nur das Essen war etwas ganz besonders, sondern auch das Restaurantpersonal wie Nizzah, sowie die Köche Kelum, Nilantha und Charuna. Sie wussten nicht nur bereits nach wenigen Tagen, welche kulinarischen Vorlieben man hatte, sondern bereicherten jeden Abend mit netten Gesprächen und Tipps. Keine Frage gab es, die man ihnen nicht stellen könnte. Eine so familiäre Atmosphäre haben wir in einem Urlaub noch nie erlebt. Auch alle anderen Mitarbeiter, die wir nicht alle namentlich kennen lernen konnten, hielten diese tolle, familiäre und entspannte Stimmung aufrecht und waren überaus freundlich und zuvorkommend. Vor allem unsere Bootscrew und Guides auf Ausflügen wie Delfin oder Hai Watching, Turtle Snorkeking, Besuch von Einheimischen Inseln oder weiteren Schnorchel Trips machten jeden Tag zu einem besonderen Tag. Wir waren selten so wehmütig am Abreisetag. Auch wenn wir uns auf den erneuten Flug mit dem Wasserflieger und den absolut lässigen Barfuß -Piloten freuten. Cinnamon hakura hurra - eine absolute Empfehlung! Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Acabamos de volver del hotel cinnamon hakuraa huraa y nuestra estancia no podría haber sido mejor! El hotel es muy tranquilo, el lugar es precioso y todo está muy bien organizado. La habitación sobre el agua es espectacular. Es una habitación muy amplia, no le falta detalle ,la cama es grande y muy cómoda, el suelo de cristal es increíble y se ven pasar los peces a la perfección. La terraza es espectacular y muy cómodo para poder darte un baño hacer snorkel allí mismo o estirarte al sol. El chico que limpiaba nuestra habitación , AKKI, es muy agradable, atento y servicial. Siempre estaba pendiente de lo que necesitábamos y venía con una gran sonrisa. Todas las instalaciones están muy bien cuidadas y hay mucho personal trabajando para que todo esté perfecto. La mesa del restaurante te la asignan ellos y siempre es la misma durante toda la estancia. La comida se nota que es de buena calidad y está muy bien cocinada. Nuestro camarero, Shifaan, era un chico muy simpático, muy profesional y siempre atento a lo que pudiéramos necesitar. TODO el personal es maravilloso, son muy educados y están pendiente para ayudarte en cualquier cosa que necesites. Era el cumpleaños de mi madre y tuvieron en detalle de llevarnos un pastel y darle un recuerdo. Por poner una pega, las excursiones/ deportes de agua y spa eran muy caros. Hubiera hecho alguna excursión o alquilado un kayak si no fuera por el precio. Reservamos la noche de barbacoa con dj en la playa y fue un acierto. Toda la comida estaba muy buena y el lugar era precioso y muy bien ambientado. También hicimos el crucero al atardecer y nos encantó! La organización del transfer también fue perfecta! Sin duda, han sido unas vacaciones maravillosas y volveríamos a repetir si pudiéramos !!

We have just spent 2 weeks between the 11th November to 24th November. We were on the Platinum Island which was amazing. The Beach Villa was fantastic inside and outside on the terrace. We were on the Sunset Side and we had some beautiful sunsets to see. Our cleaners Ali Niyaz and Sirej kept our room spotless and was lovely talking to both and finding our more information about the island and the ones close by. Thanks also for the anniversary and birthday wishes you left by using leaves and petals. In the restaurant, then thanks to Kelum the Chef and the other chefs who served us delicious food and really looked after everyone and were dedicated in providing wonderful dishes throughout the stay. Our waiter Nizaah, he was helpful, attentive, and always smiling. He was really friendly, and his manners were impeccable. The bar on the island was lovely and Nadana the barman was great, putting together different cocktails from the menu or just serving up a cold beer. We had some nice entertainment in the evening but was low key and just what we wanted. We plan to come back to this Island and will plan to stay again on the Platinum Island.

Absolutely amazing resort. We decided while we there that we will go back every few years. The water villa was beautiful with an incredible view. It included everything we needed and the friendly staff were happy to help with anything else. We particularly enjoyed snorkeling from outside our villa and saw plenty of marine life, from tiny fish to much bigger creatures. Be brave and swim a bit further out, you won't regret it. Just ve mindful of the strong currents at times and don't touch the coral. The restaurant was fantastic and the food was delicious. There were different options every meal time and so much choice. Special thanks to our waiter Saleem, who was courteous and thoughtful. He remembered our preferred drinks from the second day and kindly moved us to a table with an even better view as soon as one was available. We went on a few of the snorkeling excursions and my husband did a couple of scuba dives with the dive centre. The staff there were so friendly and went out of their way to make sure we saw everything the reefs had to offer. Plus they take fantastic videos if you have a waterproof camera. Thanks especially to Ashraf and Ahmed. We only visited the pool a few times because we were there for snorkeling, but it has lovely views over the beach and lagoon and you can swim up to the bar. We only have one suggestion for improvement. As non-drinkers we would have appreciated a wider range of mocktails, as there were only 3 included in the standard all inclusive package. This has become one of our favourite places on earth and we can't wait to come back.

Dass wir zum dritten Mal auf Hakuraa Huraa Platinum sind, ist schon ein Zeichen, wie wundervoll es hier ist. Wir haben uns sofort in die Insel und ihre ganzen Mitarbeiter verliebt! Es beginnt mit der herzensfreundlichen Begrüßung an der Rezeption, besonders sei Wilma genannt, aber ausnahmslos ALLE sind sehr aufmerksam, zugewandt und liebevoll. Das Essen ist enorm abwechslungsreich, fantasievoll und so unglaublich lecker. Da bleibt kein Wunsch offen. Besonders die Köche Kelum, Nilantha und Charuna geben ihr absolut Bestes und kennen schnell die Vorlieben ihrer Gäste. Das Restaurant-Team, u.a. Aisha und Nizaah, sind offen und aufmerksam und wir lernen viel über Land und Leute. Menaka, Mandana und der dritte Mitarbeiter (leider weiß ich den Namen nicht mehr) sind sehr kreativ und auch hier bleibt kein Wunsch offen. Unser Roomboy Ayya ist ein Künstler und zaubert aus Handtüchern und Pflanzen die schönsten Kreationen auf unser Bett. Egal welche Anwendungen im Mandana-Spa – am liebsten wären wir jeden Tag dort hingegangen. Auch dort sind ausnahmslos alle Damen so herzensgut, strahlen eine enorme Ruhe aus und können ihr Handwerk absolut. Vor einem Jahr habe ich hier Tauchen gelernt und den Padi-OWD gemacht, nun war der Advanced dran und wir tauchen täglich. Es gibt so viele Riffe hier, jedesmal entdecken wir etwas Neues und fühlen uns hervorragend betreut von den Tauchlehrern Magic und Ahmed und der ganzen Dive&Sail-Crew und dem Bootsteam. Ob es Aschraf ist oder Falla, Coco oder Hussain, Lucky oder der Kapitän, es macht einfach unglaublich Freude sie alle zu sehen. Und abgesehen davon ist die Ausrüstung immer perfekt vorbereitet und ihre Hilfsbereitschaft kennt keine Grenzen. Zu erwähnen sind auch noch die heimischen, so leckeren Kokosnussstücke, die auf uns nach jedem Tauchgang warten. Ein Genuss! Magic und Ahmed sind einfach tolle Tauchlehrer, sehr gewissenhaft, charmant und helfen einem sehr sich zu verbessern. Egal WEM wir begegnen, wir werden immer auf das herzlichste begrüßt und fühlen uns wie in einer Familie und sehr wertgeschätzt. Die ganze Insel ist so ordentlich sauber und wird täglich liebevoll gepflegt. Die Farben des Meeres betören, täglich gibt es ein neues Schauspiel, von dem wir nie genug bekommen.

Вкусная, но не большая кухня, не турецкий олл инклюзив, но здесь он и не нужен. Всегда можно найти что поесть. Краски и природа перекрывают все, эмоции зашкаливают.

Always knows everything and always so kind and helpful. Finally our favourite chef, Kylendra, you actually made my husbands trip by firstly cooking the best mutton curry to the point where we asked for the recipe which then led to you making our favourite South African dish called a bunny chow twice. Then silently slipping the recipe onto our table. You always go with grace, you never take credit where you should and we are forever blessed to have met you. The house keeping wasn’t at its best form. Unfortunately. We had to ask for the bedding to be changed and I even had to strip the actual bedding off it.

We came for our honeymoon to Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa and we are extremely pleased that we did!!!! And this is saying a lot considering it took us over 30h to arrive from Canada. 😊 The resort is gorgeous, weather was great. A bit of rain every day but for a short period of time and usually in the evening. We stayed on the private island and it was nice and quiet all the time. We wanted 10000% relaxation and comfort and it was delivered. Nice secluded bungalows and a chance to walk on the beach, fine shells, admire crabs and little fish always following us. There are also baby sharks to see near reception. Staff are great! Everyone was always nice to us and very helpful. Reception - always there for us to answers our questions. They were helpful. Restaurants - we mainly ate the restaurant on the private island. The bungalows were at 100% capacity, yet we never felt that the restaurant was busy. Food was amazing! Always something new each day and the chef is friendly, always asks us about our day. Chef Kelum was also in charge of making our special honeymoon dinner and the fish we caught on our fishing expedition. The other two chefs, Charuna and Nilantha, were also masters of their craft. Note: for those that love sweets - lots to choose from! Small portions so that you can try a bit of everything and not to feel like food is being wasted. Now our waiter was beyond fantastic! We have never seen anyone welcome us with a smile and a positive attitude, every single time. Nizaah went above and beyond every time. And he is extremely genuine and all other guests loved him as well. He makes the place extra special. Bars - lovely drinks, lots to choose from. Premium package is worth it for the food and drinks! Bartender Menara was also nice to us, smiled and accommodated all the requests, including bringing ice to our room. He went out of his way to bring it when the bar was out of it and as soon as they got it he brought it. We were very pleasantly surprised! Spa - it’s a must! Sri and Septi were great. They are very professional and nice. The massages were very good and we went twice. Consistent service and on par, if not better, than what we experienced in Toronto at a high end spa. The entire spa staff are great, including the receptionist (sorry I didn’t get the name). Overall, we are extremely happy we came here for our honeymoon and will recommend Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa to our family and friends. We are looking forward to coming here again, hopefully in the near future.

Absolutely fantastic stay! The island is so beautiful and you feel so close to nature. We did snorkelling off the water villa and saw a really good variety of fish, beautiful coral, sharks and rays. Everything about the hotel was perfect - the room, the food - we did standard AI and had an excellent choice of food and drink every day. You can either have a quiet chilled time or there are plenty of people around the pool if you want more of a social time. We got the speedboat which took around 2 hours and although long was fine. The thing that really makes this place special is the staff - absolutely fantastic service and they go the extra mile for a really personal touch. On our last day our table and bed was decorated, and even though we left really early the next morning there were staff waiting to wave us off. It really felt like a special place and we really hope we get the chance to come back soon! Thank you!

Sadly our stay was deprived of much needed sleep due to the structure of the roof on the water villas. Very light at sunrise and very noisy in wind and rain, which we had a lot of - expensive glamping. They do provide earplugs and eye shades as it is apparent that others have had the same issue in the past - however this just made the nights very uncomfortable so we have not returned refreshed. This is our only real negative of the resort so if you are OK sleeping in tent like conditions then you will enjoy the resort. The A/C because of the structure of the roof does struggle in the day to keep the room cool - not energy efficient at all. Snorkelling - there are 2 free resort excursions daily during your stay to nearby reefs and also the dive centre offer paid excursions - No nearby drop off and too shallow, so if snorkelling is your thing then you may be disappointed at this resort. Take sea shoes - The resort offer snorkel and mask but will charge you if they break - swimming with sharks was our best experience, there is also turtle and manta ray swimming too for a fee. The staff are very friendly - big shout out to Saleem our server at mealtimes - excellent service The dive staff are fun and professional The bar staff friendly The plugs in the room accept for sure, Uk and European and there is USB outlets each side of the bed - shaver point in the bathroom Shampoo and Conditioner in one in the shower - and shower gel - body lotion too so amenities supplied - the shampoo and conditioner in one not great if your hair needs conditioning after the sun and salt water and shop expensive so pack your own would be my advice There is a bluetooth speaker in the room and a torch A coffee machine with capsules - Bonmatic mini is the make of the machine A kettle with tea and nescafe sachets and coffee mate provided For the rain there are waterproof macs - some have umbrellas we saw Slippers and dressing gowns Life jackets in the room which you need for excursions Iron and ironing board in the wardrobe Hairdryer provided - Emberton model 1600W The Maldives is beautiful - this resort is about 45 mins in a seaplane - We stayed at Cinnamon Velafushi last year - highly recommend - The Brand as a whole is very customer service orientated and really do make a huge effort in resort. For this I would say try any of their resorts but just note our feedback is purely our experience and may not bother others but we just wished we were made aware of the roof structure!

Muito lindo, sempre tudo limpo, muita variedade de comida, maravilhoso, fica quase a 150 kms de male por isso a viagem é um pouco longa , demoramos 1 hora mas se fizermos paragens noutros resorts demoramos mais .

An unforgettable vacation! We vacationed here in November 2023. I would especially like to thank our wonderful waiter Saleem Ibrahim, he is a very friendly and kind person, a pleasure to talk to and whom we were truly glad to see throughout our entire stay at the hotel! The restaurant on the island deserves the highest praise - a huge selection of dishes, the range of dishes was constantly updated, it was very tasty and beautiful! All the staff are very friendly. The island is not boring, there is a lot of fish, very beautiful water and picturesque beaches, a lot of water activities, the guys from the diving center try very hard and love their job. But I advise you to be careful when renting snorkeling equipment - the fines for damage are quite large. Thanks also to Aaish, who kindly assisted me in various accommodation related issues and helped me resolve any issues that arose quickly. In this sense, interaction with the hotel administration was a little lacking; I would like to see communication via WhatsApp in the future. In general, all the little things, all the staff are very nice, thank you for the holiday, everything was wonderful and we will definitely come back!

We are here now and it's paradise.we have a water bungalow which you can see the Ray's,fishes and Reef sharks at night. We absolutely love it.The Food in the buffet is varied,beautifully presented and fabulous. We are well travelled and this was my bucket list holiday for our Anniversary of 15 years...its delivered beyond anything. We did the special Hilltop dinner last night..,alone.very romantic, stunning food by Chef parmethan?.his name begins with P and we were served by Rushan....It seems pricey but the quality of food was brilliant. We were allowed to change the sparkling wine for a nice Red. Staff are friendly, smiley. I used the Spa and was treated by purnama to the best relaxing facial ever!so visit the spa.They also sorted me out with Oil for my hair when I asked for advice. Our Roomboy Habeeb is an absolute star.very cheerful,we want for nothing. He tells us interesting things about the island.He is very diligent and hardworking. Stunning island,views....we went Dolphin watching and saw loads! There is a snorkeling shuttle everyday...honestly they hv thought of everything you could want. I think it's very laid back and relaxing. I chose carefully to come here.....I made the right choice and will return soon. Katherine

Take Care, if you are only Girls the staff there is very intrusive. We wanted to solve the Problem, But there happened nothing. Just be careful and don’t walk around the isle by yourself. Could happen, that some of the staff will catch you up and will try to touch you in intim area!

A beautiful island, beautiful rooms and exceptional staff. The food was brilliant as ever. I think there is work to be done on the bar location/ambience to attract repeater guests who visit for the beauty, diving and to make friends.

If you like to snorkel and explore the reefs and marine life from your water villa - this is not the resort for you. The lagoon is very shallow with super strong currents and tides and there is not much to do. The resort organizes snorkeling trips twice a day so you are in the water for about half an hour but you go to a couple of reefs and it can get a bit boring after the 3rd time. Also these trips are are set times and sometimes I did not feel like going at the particular time, but felt forced to do that if I wanted to go snorkeling. The diving center can take you to other locations for an extra price - up to you if you want to do that. However, if you like the beach and shallow water - can highly recommend. The restaurant is also very good and the spa is excellent. There are two very disappointing features of the resort - the roofs of the villas are made of tarpaulin (tent-like) and the villas are impossible to cool down - such a waste of energy. The other annoying thing is that people smoke everywhere at the bar and around the island, which is something we did not appreciate. Some of the staff are also quite attentive and do not even say Hello when they see you. There are dolphin watching trips and shark feeding I would recommend. There also needs to be more consistency of service. For instance - there was flambé cocktail night on Fridays, which we missed the first time. We were shown videos of it and it was quite a show, so we were looking forward to enjoy it the next week and the next week there was no show at all. The other disappointing thing was that we were charged for the crab race even though it was clearly indicated that it was free for PAI guests. I would say that compared to other resorts in the Maldives this is a more relaxed, low-key resort and if you find a great discount deal - go for it. I would not pay full price for it though as it's not worth it.

We visited Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa in October to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. I was a bit apprehensive about going, as I wasn’t sure if this type of holiday would be for me, but that is where my husband wanted to go. After a 22 hour journey we arrived. The welcome we received was lovely and our room on the Platinum Island was ready at 11am. We were taken to our room after being shown around the islands. Our luggage arrived a little later as the sea plane was full so it followed on the next one. The bungalow was beautiful, the view from the patio breathtaking and I started to wonder if maybe, this was going to be worth it after all. Our room and us was looked after my Naseer or as he is known Ado. He was funny, attentive and made us feel really welcome. He explained what was going on each day and taught us some Maldivian. My husband who loves football, started the usually conversation and Naseer explained that there was an interdepartmental tournament. He invited us along to watch in the staff quarters and we were made to feel so welcome. Thoroughly enjoyable. Naseer is also the main dancer in the Maldivian night celebrations, needless to say he got us up dancing with some other guests. It really was great fun and lovely to see the Maldivian culture. Now onto the food. Our restaurant server was Husam. He greeted us and smiled at every meal. Remembered what we drank and made sure that we had everything we could ever ask for. He arranged for us to attend the beach BBQ on the other island, knowing it was my husbands birthday he arranged a table with happy birthday on it, and also a cake and sang happy birthday. My husband said it was the best birthday he had ever had. Husam, known as Gabo wrote a card with my husband’s name in Dhivehi and nicknamed him Kara’s which means grandfather. The name came home with him. The food is wonderful, Charuna, Nilantha and Kelum are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble and I can honestly say everything I ate was lovely. They always had a smile and made time to make you feel special. The bar staff were so good.making sure that they remembered your drink and asking you when you wanted a top up. Top man Nandana who makes the best Mojito I have ever had. The island is beautiful, kept wonderfully clean. Everyone speaks and smiles. The snorkelling was really good too. Whilst I was there I had an eye infection. Swimming with contacts in! It was very painful, and I needed to go to reception to get it sorted. There was a doctor on the island, I didn’t know this. I saw him in 10 minutes. He prescribed me drops and within 6 hours I was feeling better. He even checked up to see if I was ok. You can’t get that at home. The cost was extremely reasonable too. So would I recommend a totally luxurious holiday with total relaxation from someone like me who doesn’t sit still? Absolutely I would. I totally relaxed, reconnect to myself and my husband and felt absolutely great. I even felt quite emotional when I had to pack! Go do it, it was wonderful.
