Just Don't Hesitate
When you think of the Maldives you have in your mind heaven on earth and that was exactly what we got. I've been in Travel for over 35 years and this particular Island has always been a favourite then at last it was time for me and it really didn't disappoint. The fantastic organised Sea Plane Transfer at Male Airport - that first glance of the Island as you fly over- it takes your breath away Our Water Villa was Sunset Side so every evening we we mesmerised by the incredible colours of the setting sun - exceptional service keeping the mini bar stocked - clean towels and beds made We had family also with us who stayed Sunrise Side and at first slightly disappointed but then realised the benefits of being able to sit out all afternoon while our Deck was almost too hot The stunning beach with infinity pool and swim up bar run by the most hospitable Team managed by Mr Rumesh De Silva - nothing is too much trouble - you just need to ask And what a view from the Gym - just wow! I loved having a Table allocated on arrival in the Restaurant and that table was yours for your whole holiday - no wandering round at busier times to find somewhere to eat - morning, noon or night your table was there waiting for you - the same waiters remembering your drinks and having them ready when you return from the most incredible buffet - Prasanga Chathuranga each morning made the best Eggs Benedict, then Pasta or Chinese or anything that we needed - everything was outstanding. Not once in our 12 nights did we get bored in the Buffet - there was always something new to tempt you and the cold rooms with Cheese/Meats/Salads one side the Desserts/Fruit/Ice Cream the other side were welcomed on a hot day. We did two visits to the Spa and the offers were such great value for money and so relaxing. Every member of staff that we had the privilege of meeting whilst we were there made this holiday something really special. Hazel Caminting Mamolo - meeting you for the first time as we got off the Sea Plane and everything you did to make our Holiday the best ever - we can't thank you enough - we will be back sometime soon This Island is worth every penny so don't hesitate - life is too short

Honeymoon in Paradise
What a stay we had at the Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa. From the moment we touched down in the Seaplane to some of the staff playing music and welcoming off the jetty to when we left with them saying goodbye on the same jetty, the staff make this hotel/resort what it is..fantastic!!! The resort was an excellent standard. Our room was cleaned twice a day by a lovely young man who went above and beyond and on hearing of our honeymoon dressed our room in flowers which was absolutely brilliant. We stayed on the Platinum Island and if you can stay there as it is quiet and a different pace to the main island, everything feels that little bit more personal. The restaurant there was first class. They had different food every day and was always immaculately presented. Hannan and his team would greet us and seat us every breakfast, lunch and dinner, they were amazingly attentive and would ask us about our day. The chefs were a pleasure and would make us things fresh every day but there was so much food you didn’t really know where to start and were open to talking and were very polite. The resorts gym was excellent too as were the Cinema on the Beach, Yoga on the Beach, Balinese dancing and Maldivian Nights. On a couple of the nights the entertainment was poor but overall we enjoyed what was on offer. The trips were great value and we fed sharks and saw spinning dolphins on two trips. The snorkelling is great but beware of some rather large stingrays and a strong current. The bar by the pool was always manned and would always make you a drink throughout the day of which there were plenty. It really was the honeymoon of our dreams and all kudos to the staff at this resort who were fantastic.
A stunning 2 weeks
This resort was everything previous reviews said it was. We had a week in a water bungalow then we were upgraded to the platinum island free of charge. A perfect 2 weeks of doing nothing. Rooms were cleaned and restocked twice a day with bottled water, mini bar, towels etc. staff couldn’t do enough and often went over and above to serve. Laundry service is excellent ( at a small cost). But beware, some extras are chargeable. If you get the munchies, the Pringles and chocolate are $5 each. So to sum up, this was a holiday of a lifetime but take snacks.
Best honeymoon ever!
We had the most amazing stay here - everything was perfect (including the weather!). Staff were all exceptional and always so friendly, they definitely added to our experience. Special thank you to Hussain for looking after us in the restaurant for our whole stay. We did the snorkeling trip to turtle island with one of the lovely watersports staff - this was the most amazing experience and so worth the money. The buffet food here was delicious every single day, we never got bored and it wasn't repetitive at all. Would definitely recommend this hotel and the Maldives overall if you're looking for a very relaxed holiday!
