Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon

7 night Holidays




How do we begin to describe the enchantment of Ellaidhoo to you? Can we tell you about the exhilarating seaplane landing in the middle of the ocean? Maybe we should start with telling you that we house the best diving reef in the world, or that a school of a 100 giant jack fish come by the hotel decks each evening to be fed by the hotel staff? Or then again, maybe the beginning of our story should be to tell you why this island is called Ellaidhoo in the first place; you see, an indescribable phenomenon brings a heavenly light down to the island from the sky at the most unexpected moments. Some say it’s St. Elmo’s Fire, but here on Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon, we believe in magic.
An indescribable bond connects the marine life to the people on the island, a beautiful sense of symbiosis and possibly a guideline for how we should respect and live with all wild life and marine life on this planet. While the spectacular marine life from reef to shark to manta is our base for tourism, it isn’t merely an income thing for us – all beings around our island are our friends.Our dive site sits right off the hotel decks, so all you have to do is put on some diving gear or snorkels and jump into a reef so spectacular that you’re going to want to stay there until your tank runs out. People come to Ellaidhoo from all over the world and year after year; the island and the marine life around us become addictive things, especially when you realize that our staff become your friends too.This is how you experience our enchanting island and connect with its spirit.Located about 42km away from the capital and a quick 25-minute seaplaneride away, the Ellaidhoo Reef sits on the eastern fringe of North Ari Atoll – the largest of the 22 natural atolls that make up the Maldives. Abundantly lush, with shady palm trees and soft white sand, Ellaidhoo combines exquisite living and star-class service with a family spirit and connection to mother earth. We are an award winning, Green Globe-certified resort, also holding ISO 12,000, 14,000 and 16,000 certifications. Our quaint interiors and curated trimming meet our 100-year old island trees in a way that brings the best of every world into the palm of your hands.Come to Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon, our turtle-shaped island and its underwater paradise.


Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon houses some of the best resort accommodation options in the Maldives, keeping you close to the ocean or quietly nestled in our lush gardens. We house 112 rooms across 5 room categories with ocean-inspired interiors and open-air bathrooms. Our incomparable service, inspiring interiors and breathtaking sunsets combine to make staying with us a magical experience. Sink into the plush comforts of your room after a long day in the ocean or splashing around in our pool. Loungers on balconies, sun decks or verandah spaces also come with each room, giving you a great place to work on your tan and snooze off a balmy island afternoon, without ever having to leave the comfort of your private space. 

Standard Room - Garden View

Our standard rooms are pefect island bungalows, designed for the diving buff who wants minimum time in a room and maximum adventure under the ocean. If you’re coming to Ellaidhoo for its action and excitement, any one of our spacious 14 Island Bungalows is a great call for the much needed downtime it provides. Our island days are busy and tiring ones and we understand your need to unwind. Comfortable sleeping, outdoor showers and a host of amenities combine to make your stay a relaxing one, when you’re done with those long, adventurous days.

Coming to our island in a group? Bringing the spouse and kids along? Then our Superior Rooms are your prime Maldives resort accommodation option.  Surprisingly spacious, allowing comfort for up to four at a time, while still providing much needed personal space. Making up 28 in total, these family-style rooms are cozy and vibrantly designed, housing an open-air bathroom and terra cotta floors, offering great views of the ocean.

Beach Bungalow

Each of our 46 beach bungalows at Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon have been designed to give you optimum privacy and comfort. Walk into your room, open the shades and take in the ocean-island view as the waters change color from turquoise to deep blue. Designed with traditional Maldivian thatched-roofs, these quaint structures are located on the quieter quarter of the island, allowing you to seclude yourself for private time on the island, should you so desire it. Comfortable divans on the balconies and verandahs make for great look-out points too. Settle down here at night to sounds of the sea and a chorus of chirping birds – it doesn’t get much more au naturel than this!

Water Bungalow

We’ve saved the best for the setting sun. Our magical water bungalows are the most pristine and ethereal you’ll ever know. Sitting along a semi-circular deck above the Indian Ocean, these white wood and thatched-roof water bungalows are the perfect setting for a magical time on our island. Walk in and let your eyes take in the vibrant, ocean-themed interiors and an inviting outdoor tub. The water bungalow’s private deck is a great way to watch the sun go down. A separate dining area, bar and our excellent infinity pool combine to give you a complete island experience in one go. Take it, make it yours and fall in love with the magic we have on offer at the best Maldives Water Bungalows you’ll ever find.


Inviting you to our enchanting island means that everything you experience here is going to be that much more magical. This is especially true of our dining and wining options around the island. Two bars, two restaurants and a dozen other imaginative places are available for magical dining experiences, including floating on the ocean on a dhoni for two! And did we tell you about our food? Sure, we do great seafood here, exceptional in fact – but our executive chef comes with a world of experiences that manifests in his carefully chosen menu and locally sourced spices.He also insists on a healthy corner at each of the outlets. Sit by the pool bar to watch the sun set over our water bungalows. Head over to the Iruohsnee decks at 5:30 for sundown cocktails while we feed a giant school of jack fish that come by sharp on time for their daily feeding.Have your meals at the sandy-floored Madi Restaurant and discover an unbelievably diverse spread. No matter where you choose to drink or dine, our outlets give you great experiences that combine our diverse and eclectic dishes that are out of this world!

Madi Restaurant

Our biggest dining venue at Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon, Madi’s sandy floors keep you connected to the island while your taste buds travel the world. Great continental buffet style meals are served at breakfast, lunch and dinner, which is probably why it’s constantly crowded with guests helping themselves to seconds and even thirds! Madi is a firm favourite with everyone on the island, because its giant roof provides shelter from tropical storms and hot island days. At Madi, our diners use their mealtimes as a perfect break from their busy days outdoors.

Malamathi Restaurant & Bar

Ellaidhoo is a celebrated resort in the Maldives islands for many reasons including the combination of an enchanting atmosphere with great taste. This is especially true of Malamathi Restaurant & Bar. Incidentally,Malamathi refers to the horizon at sunset – possibly due to its location being the perfect vantage point to view the sun go down to meet the horizon each evening. The restaurant and bar are located close to the water bungalows for the convenience of our guests. A great buffet, great cocktails and multiple action stations, you’ll be spoilt for choice. We also serve select a-la-carte dishes at this exclusive semi-open venue that spreads out into the pool deck for a spacious outdoor atmosphere.

Iruohsnee Bar

Our island survives in harmony with the marine life around us and nowhere is this more evident than at the Iruohsnee Bar. Located on the main decks of Ellaidhoo, this is a favourite hangout at any time of the day and night. Our staff will remember you by name and look forward to meeting and serving you here each day. We also offer great evening entertainment from DJs to classic rock bands and traditional Maldivian performances making Iruohsnee a firm favourite on any day of the week. But what makes this venue truly out of this world is probably the daily evening feed. Buckets of fresh seafood are given to the school of Jack Fish, a Sting Ray and even some herons that never forget drop by for their daily feeding at 5:30. To put it mildly – it’s a spectacular sight. But that’s not why we do it; we are honoured to give back to an ocean that has blessed us abundantly.

Sand Bar

We all know what a tropical storm can do to an island; while it’s a spectacular sight to witness, we bet you don’t want to do it getting drenched. And just because it rains, it doesn’t mean all the fun must end. This is why our spacious, thatched-roof Sand Bar lets you dig your toes into the sand while you throw back some heady cocktails and continue with all the fun you were having on the island. We’re firm believers in the notion that rain or shine, the magic must continue!

Swimming Pool

Between the outer decks of the Malamathi Restaurant, completing the circle of Water Bungalows, sits our infinity pool overlooking the turquoise waters of the reef below. Jump in and stay there until the sun begins to set. Then move over to the edge of the pool and gaze on the sun’s orange-gold journey home.  Maybe you’re on the island with the whole family – why not bring them all by for a day by the poolside?
