Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon to unveil revamped water bungalows in October
Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon is all set to unveil a fresh look and feel for its water bungalows as well as the accompanying restaurant and bar.
Set to open on October 1, the refurbished water bungalows sport lighter colours and fresher settings. Designed with new tiled roofs, these overwater villas now come with an extended wooden sundeck, where comfortable divans make for great look-out points across the ocean. An invitingly plush king size bed, indoor seating area, and work and dressing tables adorn the insides of the bungalows, while an open air bathroom completes the offering.
Continuing this lighter look and feel, the Malamathi Restaurant and Pool Bar, which are exclusive to guests staying in the water bungalows, have been redesigned with the bar being relocated to the left side of the pool. The space now feels more open, while the new furniture gives a modern, fresh look to the restaurant and bar as well as the pool area.
The latest upgrade involving Ellaidhoo’s 24 water bungalows follows a similar refurbishment of the resort’s Standard Rooms and Beach Bungalows last year.
Ellaidhoo is accessible via seaplane or speedboat from the main Velana International Airport. It is a 25-minute journey by seaplane or a one and a half hour ride on the speedboat.
Keeping you close to the ocean or quietly nestled in lush gardens, Ellaidhoo houses 112 rooms across four room categories, including Standard Rooms, Superior Rooms, Beach Bungalows and Water Bungalows, that feature ocean-inspired interiors and open-air bathrooms.
Madi Restaurant and Malamathi Restaurant offer all-day dining with international buffet spreads. Sunset views and tropical cocktails can be enjoyed at Iruohsnee Bar or the bar at Malamathi Restaurant.
Chavana Spa at Ellaidhoo provides a pampering experience with its private treatment rooms and relaxing massage treatments. Additionally, there is an infinity pool, fitness centre, and a host of other recreation facilities, including tennis, badminton, billiards and beach volleyball.
Ellaidhoo, located in the North Ari Atoll, is renowned for its world-class diving. The resort’s fully-equipped PADI-certified dive centre comes with excellent dive instructors and guides who will lead you to the caves and colours that exist just off the resort decks. Jump in, dive down and discover the house reef, an altogether different kind of paradise. You will find that turtles, mantas, shark and whales are a constant sight, giving you a mad rush of adrenalin as they pass you by.
