Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives

~A Diver’s Paradise in the Maldives

Make a splash on your island getaway!

If you’re the adventurous kind of traveller who loves that otherworldly feeling of being submerged in the ocean, we’ve got experiences you’ll fall head-over-flippers for! Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon is situated 42 km from Malé in the
North Ari Atoll – an area famed for its diving hot spots and natural house reef. Whether you fantasise about swimming in the glasslike shallows through a rainbow of marine life, or if your dream is to explore the secrets of the deep blue waters, we’ve got more reasons for you to pack your goggles.

As much as we are known for diving and snorkelling, couples will find plenty of opportunities to rekindle the romance at Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon. Who could resist picturesque dining under the stars, a private barbeque, or a seafood dinner at the beach? Just call upon our friendly staff to set it all up! We also recommend you book a Balinese couple’s treatment at our beach resort spa, with special benefits for honeymooners.

When you’re craving a satisfying meal after an action-packed day of diving and watersports, drop by one of our two exclusively designed dining venues, each offering hunger-busting, all-you-can-eat buffets and pleasant dining environments. If you’d rather hang out in your room, we’ll understand, because our coastal-style beach and water villas are so irresistibly chic and rustic that you’ll never want to leave.



As you come in for a landing after a 25-minute seaplane journey at this Maldives beach resort, drink in the stunning view of the Indian Ocean and the reefs below. Highly recommended by Lonely Planet for its diving experiences, Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon is one of the best family friendly resorts in the country for underwater exploration, and offers diving 24 hours a day with more than 50 dive sites around the hotel.

At six hectares, Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon is a quaint island paradise at the edge of the largest of the 22 natural atolls in the Maldives. If it's an adventure you seek, romance you wish to spark, or a simple, relaxing break you dream of, we invite you to be bold, and take the plunge!
