We stayed at Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa at it was an amazing experience. The resort was breathtaking and the staff went above and beyond to make our experience unforgettable. We stayed in the Overwater Bungalow with a clear view of the ocean through our complete glass doors and in our floor! The direct access to the ocean from our villa made the experience that more special. We went in July where their weren’t many guest staying but it added a tranquility to our honeymoon. We experienced a couples massage at their spa, floating breakfast on their infinite pool and a private boat ride into the beautiful blue ocean. The resort was behind our expectations and we’re so happy we chose Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa! Read less

Our 9 night holiday at Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa was beyond expectations. The Platinum Island offered us the most exlusive and private experience we have ever had at a resort. Due to a low amount of guest because of Pandemic, there was no buffet at the Platinum Island. In fact, we were the only guest having lunch and dinner at the Platinum Island. We could have gone to the buffet on the main island, but there was no need for that at all. The service and food was outstanding. Special thanks to the Barkeepers Rathnayaka and Purna with their signature cocktails, as well as to Ravi, Eranga and Desy. Our waiter Hannan offered a five star superb personal attentive service. The chef Lakita indulged us with a delicious couisine. Every type of food we desired, he prepared for us with fresh and top quality ingredients. A special honour for my husband and me was the opprotunity to get a cooking class and prepare differend curries for dinner with Lakita. His knowlege and passion for his profession as a chef is inspiring. A special thanks to Hazel for always looking after our well-being and our diving instructor Guila for creating special memories diving on the Maldives. Summarizing it in a nutshell: It was nothing but a perfect holiday. Read less

My husband and I stayed at Hakuraa for our honeymoon and we had the most amazing time! We arrived at the resort to a warm welcome with drums, flower decorations, cold face towels and welcome drinks which was such a relief after the long travel. We stayed in the water villa and it was beautiful - we could see fish through the glass floor and could snorkel right from our deck. We saw a wide range of tropical fish, reef sharks, sting rays and eagle rays right by the villas. The restaurant had the most delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner with great variety - we actually gained weight on the trip! The chefs and our waiter Salman was super friendly and made every meal extra enjoyable. The pool bar was such a treat with a great vibe and again, superb service, especially from Eranga and Ravi, who makes the most divine cocktails! There was plenty of evening entertainment 0 live performances, traditional dancing, movie night on the beach and even a cocktail party. We also visited the Spa for a wonderful treatment, while it is a bit pricey for those of us not earning dollars, it was a very relaxing experience and the staff were great. Overall, we had a magical time. The all inclusive option is definitely worth it and it was so wonderful to be able to just relax and worry about nothing - the staff thing of everything and take care of everything for you. The resort is like paradise and the service is all round incredible! We were sad to leave and are already planning a trip back. Read less
