Surfing at Pasta Point and the surf transfer boats are for Atoll Adventures’ clients only.

In 1991 Atoll Adventures’ founder the late Tony Hussein Hinde selected the little resort on Kanuoiy Huraa island in North Male Atoll as the location to establish the Maldives first land based surf tour.
It was chosen for one reason…….it’s simply the best location for surfers with the quality and consistency of Pasta Point and the proximity to three other world class waves.
Much has changed; the old Tari Village resort became the luxurious Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives and Atoll Adventures became the most exclusive and comprehensive surfing operation in the Maldives maintaining the highest standards of service and sustainability.
Pasta Point, the region’s most consistent break, is just a minute’s walk from your room. Other classic breaks – Sultans, Honky’s and Jailbreak – are less than ten minutes away by boat. You can see the waves from the resort, so you’ll know when they’re pumping. When conditions are favourable, try Chickens and Colas (about 45 minutes away) – boats are available all day from 5.30am. (see Maldives Surf and Pasta Point Instagram for daily surf updates).
The features of the Atoll Adventures surf tour are:-
- Maximum of only 30 surfers on island with exclusive access to Pasta Point.
- Pasta Point the most consistent break and best wave if smaller swell.
- Closest resort to the other prime breaks of Sultans (R), Honky’s (L) & Jailbreak (R) all within 10 minutes by boat.
- Unlimited surf transfers to the regional breaks included.
- First boat to Sultans departs at 5.30am to be first in the water.
- All surf transfer boats and guides with walkie-talkie communication for coordinating quick access to breaks.
- Operations Manager, Dara with 20 years’ experience.
- ISA accredited Maldivian surf guides.
- Perfect for just the boys or with partners & children.
- Perfect for all abilities of surfers.
- Flexible arrival/departure days to suit all itineraries.
- Snorkeling and fishing included.
Every surf traveller should experience the uncrowded, consistent and perfect waves of the renowned Pasta Point while enjoying the comforts, service and sensational food of the four star Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives resort.
The resort accommodates up to 250 guests, but the number of surfers is limited to just 30. Facilities include a spa, open-air restaurants, three bars (one overlooking Pasta Point), wi-fi internet access, swimming pool, billiards, tennis court, badminton, gym, safe beach for children, and a fully certified PADI Diving School. With a white sand beach and plenty to do for non-surfing partners and children, it’s a great place to relax or to holiday with the family.
All rooms are air-conditioned and have king-sized beds, a stocked mini-bar, satellite-cable TV, telephone, tea/coffee making, closets, writing table and chairs. Additional beds can be provided for family accommodation. Four types of room are available (click the links for pictures and details)
During 2019 all rooms are undergoing extensive renovations as well as the Koimala Restaurant; Sunset Bar; main pool and reception areas. Cinnamon Dhonveli resort will be a fully branded 4 Star resort for 2020.
There are six room types with the four most popular for Surfers and their families being the Garden, Beach & Water Bungalows and the plush Over Water Suites. (click the links to see conceptuals for the the new room designs)
Garden Bungalows are the most popular choice for surfers. These two-storey units have a king size bed and balcony up on a mezzanine level, and spacious sitting room with an extra bed (or day bed) downstairs, and a stylish, fully tiled bathroom.
Beach Bungalows face the lagoon, and are beautifully finished with tropical timbers and textured walls. They feature a king-size bed and an open-air bathroom with shower and tub in a private tropical garden. There’s plenty of space for an extra bed for family holidays.
Water Bungalows are built over the water inside the reef, with views of the waves and the Pasta Point break just a short stroll away – wake up to the sound of the surf! Water Bungalows feature a spa bath and private sun deck.
Over Water Suites, above the lagoon, have a wide outdoor deck with private sun lounges and steps down to the water. The romantic bedroom features king-sized bed, en suite bathroom and personal spa bath. A separate living room features a divan/day bed, TV, and entertainment system.
The open-air Makana Restaurant serves an international buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For those who like to try the local foods, and particularly enjoy a curry, the Maldivian dishes are highly recommended. Right at the water’s edge, the Raiyvilaa Bar opens daily from 8am till late at night. It’s the place to enjoy a fancy cocktail on the open deck as the sun sets on another tropical island day. The Raalhu Bar, overlooking the break at Pasta Point, is the ideal place to watch the action or retreat for a cool beer after a long day in the surf. It’s open from 6am till late at night..
