Location

Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon is located about 42 kilometres away from the capital of Malé and a quick 25-minute seaplane ride or a speedboat journey of 95 minutes. Just 300 metres long and 280 metres wide, this private paradise is located on the eastern fringes of the North Ari Atoll. The North Ari Atoll is the largest of the 22 natural atolls that make up the Maldives.

Astounding Coral Reefs

Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon offers an excellent house reef. Swimming in warm, azure waters as clear as glass, it’s easy to fall under the spell of the vivid corals of the reef, which will leave one pleasingly intoxicated. Ellaidhoo’s 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. The coral reefs this resort was named after are astounding here, and are home to some incredible underwater life. It’s no wonder that this calm little island is known as one of the top spots for divers in the Maldives. Ellaidhoo Island is a safe distance away from the busy world with a total land area of 55,625 square metres.
