There is more to Maldives than crystal waters and white sandy beaches. Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives is proof of the diverse landscape and marine life experiences that the island nation offers.

Introducing Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives
With stunning Italian architecture, Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives is created in the style of a green island-oasis and is surrounded by white sandy beaches. The resort is ideal for families, couples, and solo adventurers alike. Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives is also located close to the best dives sites in Vaavu Atoll and is 67 kilometres from the commercial hub Malé. You can arrive at the resort either by seaplane or speedboat.
A variety of authentic experiences awaits one on the island, including ocean and sand bank excursions and local island tours. The Vaavu Atoll is one of the least populated in the Maldives, making it a prime dive area. You can go snorkelling or scuba diving or explore shipwreck dive sites here. The unique ‘swim with sharks’ excursion lets visitors get up close and personal with nurse sharks. During good months, you can also spot the diverse marine life of Maldives. From whitetip and blacktip sharks to sting rays, the unsullied conditions in Vaavu Atoll offer magical diving experiences.
Island hopping and half-day excursions to local villages is another way to spend a day at Cinnamon Velifushi. You can catch glimpses of the Maldivian culture, eat at the best local spots, and shop for handicraft souvenirs. For a relaxing experience, spend the day watching dolphins on a sunset fishing expedition with an experienced dhoni crew or enjoy a lazy picnic and bask in the sunshine at a sandbank surrounded by the ocean. If you prefer to spend your day at the property, there are options to play volleyball, beach tennis, and futsal or engage in indoor activities like table tennis, darts, billiards, and foosball.
Guests can pick from five types of luxurious accommodation—Superior Beach Lofts, Beach Bungalows, Water Bungalows, Sunset Water Bungalow with Jacuzzi, and Water Suite with Pool. At Superior Beach Loft, you can enjoy the view of the blue ocean. Relax on the private terrace while sipping on a drink and listening to the calming sound of the waves. Adventure meets comfort at the Beach Bungalow located on the white-sand beaches. You can get out into the boundless ocean and dive freely or stroll down the beach. Water Bungalows define luxury at its best; here you can lounge in a hammock with the backdrop of the pristine ocean.
And if the ocean view isn’t enough for you, the Sunset Water Bungalow features a private Jacuzzi that will let you unwind to the fullest. Immerse yourself in luxury at the Water Suite with a Pool—it is a spacious, plush home with a terrace and a plunge pool providing an opportunity to spend precious time with your loved ones. Each villa offers private access to the ocean where you can snorkel in the lagoons and admire underwater spectacles. For those looking to unwind, Mandara Spa is an overwater spa specialising in Balinese treatments. The signature Mandara massage is the perfect ending to a day full of adventure and exploration.
The dining scene here is incredible with a variety of options—if you want to dine in an al fresco setting, Vah offers an array of international cuisines from Italian, Asian, and Indian to Sri Lankan and Maldivian, along with a beautiful backdrop of the ocean. You can also see the food being prepared live at the counters. There’s also a dedicated space for salads and desserts. As the day ends, head to Marlin, a seafood restaurant where you can expect a signature seafood experience with a chef special 7-course set menu that highlights both local and international ingredients.
Choose from a selection of the most decadent flavours of ice cream at Iru Beach Bar. Fen Pool Bar offers a diverse range of exciting drinks. Wrap up the day of adventures with fresh coconut water or fun cocktails; or catch the sunset while cycling along the less trodden path on the property.
Hama is perfect for night owls. Here, you can party for as long as you want because the bar doesn’t close until you leave. Your mood will be raised by the fun cocktails, excellent ambience, and terrific music in this place. Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives also offers exclusive experiences to make the most of your tropical holiday.
