This is our first time in the Maldives and Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa is definitely a paradise on earth. We felt the warm welcome the minute we arrived. Malsha & Jessila and the other staff with drums were there to welcome us. Check in was very quick and we were offered lunch upon arrival even if lunchtime is almost over. After that a staff (I am not good at remembering names) brought us to our water bungalow. The bungalow was newly refurbished, very clean and modern. The clear blue waters, full of marine life were beautiful. There is a glass floor panel in the room where you could watch marine life at the convenience of your own room. The pool area is quiet with music to provide a chill ambience. Cocktails from Veli Bar and Lounge are of excellent quality. The buffet at Malaafaiy Restaurant is great. There are lots of variety of dishes and they are freshly cooked with lots of dishes on offer. The included Romantic Dinner at the Crab Restaurant is a very extraordinary dining experience with a very delicious food served. The Dolphin Cruise & Sunset Fishing is is also a memorable experience. The Mandara Spa is very relaxing. The massage and facial are very relaxing. Tips for improvement / Things that did not went well 1. The room air-condition on our first 2 days are not that cold. We were sweating. 2. There are so much crows at the restaurant. 3. I know this might be a personal thing, but please ensure that the employees are hygienic as some of them have a bad underarm odor. 4. Malsha agreed to give us a discounted price for A PRIVATE BEACH BBQ DINNER. We confirmed our menu on the afternoon of our dinner date. But when dinner came, I was given a different main course and the waiter said that we have not reserved for a BEACH BBQ DINNER and the worst part is I found out that the discounted rate was not given. Also would like to give a shoutout and thankyou to the following: 1. Mr. Malsha for being patient with me from the moment I made an email inquiry to the moment we stayed and always asking about how we are doing. 2. Jesila for the warm welcome and also asking about how we are doing when we bump into each other. 3. The welcome staff and butlers and room cleaners (I may not remeber your names but thank you.) 4. Diane, Tirana, April and the MAdara Spa Staff for being very accommdoating and for the relaxing massage 5. The chef, cooks, servers & barman who always serves delicious food and drinks 6. Even the street sweepers who make sure that the pathways and public areas are clean. Thank you everyone for making our vacation & my wife's birthday a very unforgettable one. We will definitely come back and we hope to see you all again soon! Read less
