This fully equipped centre comes with excellent dive instructors and guides who will lead you to the caves and colours that exist just off our resort decks. Jump in, dive down and discover our house reef, an altogether different kind of paradise. You’ll find that turtles, mantas, shark and whales are a constant sight, giving you a mad rush of adrenalin as they pass you by. Dive & Sail is open 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Drop by if you’re staying at Ellaidhoo and indulge in a free trial dive!

Sports Complex

While everyone who comes to Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon won’t be an avid diver, we do understand the need to be active even when you’re here for lazy days under the sun. Being on holiday doesn’t mean that you have to give up on your regular workout routine. Work out at our full service gym, pick up a racket and make good use of our tennis, badminton or squash courts. Pick up a book from our library or play a game of pool. You can even join us for an impromptu game of football or cricket at our extensive grounds. We’re an active island and we provide everything you need to be up and going whenever you want to. At Ellaidhoo, the magic is always in the action.
