Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon 

Big fish, beautiful dive sites and a bewitching pool

This enchanting, eco-friendly island comes with ocean-facing bungalows and is known around the world for its exceptional diving.

Ellaidhoo Maldives By Cinnamon really wants to get you in and under the water. The island brags one of the best coral reefs in the Maldives and over 50 mesmerising dive sites brimming with reef sharks and rays. Above the surface, an infinity-edged pool overlooks the turquoise lagoon, water bungalows come with huge sun decks and beach bungalows sit right on shimmering white sands.

Why we love Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon

  • Underwater adventures day and night from the 24/7 Dive& Sail centre.

  • Water bungalows have exclusive access to ocean-facing Malamathi restaurant.

  • Book Lover’s Deck for privacy, a personal butler and a table set for two at the end of a jetty.

  • The Balinese spa’s signature treatment is a blissful four-handed Chavana massage.
