Wow!!! Where do we even begin? We have just got back from the most incredible stay at Cinnamon Hakurra Hurra. From the moment you step off the sea plane you are made to feel most welcome and thoroughly looked after. From the reception staff, restaurant staff, dive centre crew, room service and maintenance- everyone greets you with a smile and hello. Nothing is too much trouble! We stayed in 322 Water Bungalow which was amazing. Plenty of space, very clean and with beautiful views and the incredible glass bottom floor where you can see some of the amazing sea life. The food is great with lots of choice and different themed nights. Plenty to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We did some amazing excursions which we would highly recommend including the dolphin safari and sunset shark feeding. We also used the dive centre facilities and went on a snorkelling safari and made use of some of the equipment including paddle boards and kayaks. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you once again for a trip of a lifetime. Read less

The staff is extremely friendly, smile and professional (special thanks to Kelum, Sharuwanu, Menaka and Nandana). The rooms are spacious, clean and wel— organised. Great variety of food options, fruits, local cuisine, seafood, vegan - they have it all and it is tasty! Kelum is our favourite chef! Each evening the hotel offers a different entertainment. You can never be bored. The SPA offers a variety of relaxing procedures and is again - of the highest level. Best of all - there are morning and afternoon snorkelling trips. In summary - fantastic nature, great amenities, friendly people, great attitude, well organized hotel management structure...wood definitely recommend! Read less

beautiful atoll, well organised, staff very professional, food was good, watervillas spacious and clean with really nice corals in front of them for diving the only thing which is matter of taste but to consider is a very shallow lagoon, we personally prefer deeper waters but on the other hand some people prefer it this way

Beautiful island surrounded by turquoise sea and white sand beaches. The over the water bungalow was a wonderful experience but wind and rain can make it quite scary on the first night. Our room person was absolutely amazing ( Naajih) with keeping our room clean and spectacularly decorated our bed with flower petals and leaves which was amazing. Our only criticism was that there’s wasn’t enough entertainment, which included very little music/atmosphere around the swimming pool and beach. Would recommend using Spa, which we did having the yin n yang spa. Read less

My wife and I spent 10 days on this wonderful island/resort. We were accommodated on the Platinum Island which turned out to be the best and most relaxing vacation experience we ever had. In this area of the resort no kids and only Platinum guests are allowed. This makes it a bit more exclusive. Food and Drinks are the same there are just less people. Nevertheless everything from the main island can be accessed and used as well (gym, restaurants, pool etc.). All public areas on Platinum island are far from crowed. Most of the time we had pool and beach area almost for ourselves (5/5). I highly recommend spending the sunset time in the pool area with drinks provided from friendly and caring barmen Nandana and Menaka (6/5) Every member of the staff always had smile on their faces when they saw us and helped us with our inquiries. Room-wise were had a beach bungalow with direct water access. The room itself was okay - in a good overall shape, nice design. A/C needs to run all-time due to high humidity and lack of insulation. (4/5). The resort offers various activities. Snorkeling trips are available twice a day. Equipment can be borrowed for free during the length of the stay. Apart from that we tried the shark watching and the Spa. Great experiences and already included in out booked package. (directly booked via hotel website) (5/5) Food was fantastic. I never expected such a variety and quality of food - there are separate cooled rooms at the buffet for starters and desserts. I personally loved the live cooking. Every evening, lunch there was a different theme covered from live cooking. (5/5) Apart from buffets there are extra dinner activities that can be purchased. We never went for those because the buffet was excellent and also we found it a bit expensive. Overall we had a great time in the island and are already discussing when to visit the next time.
