The Original Surf Resort in the Maldives!

Cinnamon Dhonveli is where surfing in the Maldives began. Ever since Tony Hussein Hinde stumbled across the perfect waves of the Maldives whilst hitching a lift on a yacht from Sri Lanka to Africa and established Atoll Adventures, surfers have dreamt of surfing perfect Pasta Point.

Located in North Male, Cinnamon Dhonveli offers access to their private wave, Pasta Point, for a lucky 33 surfers onsite. This keeps the crowds low and the vibes high! The resort itself is luxurious and the perfect spot for solo surfers, couples, and families wanting to surf the tropical reefs around North Male!

The Resort

Cinnamon Dhonveli is located in the North Male Atoll, only a 20-minute boat ride from the international airport. The resort is located on its own tropical island paradise with its private wave, Pasta Point breaking on the resort’s private reef, right in front of the restaurant. Watch the waves roll in whilst enjoying the amazing food on offer!

The resort offers a full luxury spa, open-air restaurants, three bars, a fitness centre, a safe beach for children, and a fully certified PADI Diving School! The resort has a beautiful white sand beach and plenty to do for non-surfing partners and children, itโ€™s a great place to relax or to holiday with the family.

Waves at Cinnamon Dhonveli

The star of the show is the private wave onsite, Pasta Point, this classy left-hander reels along the reef at the perfect speed to do turns as well as tube sections that extend as swell gets a bit bigger. On small days the inside section gives good little barrels! Access is limited to only 33 surfers on-site, which means the wave stays uncrowded and everyone gets their share of waves!

The surf program at Pasta Point is the longest-running and most established of all Maldives Surf Resorts. The expert on-site surf team offers multiple boat rides a day to the other waves in North Male, starting at 5.30 am. Within easy reach of the resort, you can surf Cokes, Chickens, Sultans, Jailbreaks, Honky’s, and Ninjas! Enough variety to keep all surfers stoked!

Why We Love Cinnamon Dhonveli

Pasta Point and having limited surfers! This means more waves for everyone and a super good vibe in the water!

The range of activities onsite. There is always something for everyone to do, perfect for non-surfing partners and families!

The range of exclusive accommodation. There are accommodation options to suit all groups and the Overwater Catagories are really special!

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
