4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very pleasant stay. Staff was extremely courteous and the food throughout our stay was exquisite. The resort is designed keeping in mind an element of privacy which is key. Butler service is very convenient with good attention to detail and requests. Jet ski charges are on the higher side given the time allocated per booking. This should be reconsidered.

Went with a mate during a long weekend to Taj Exotica. Everything about our stay was spectacular. The resort itself has a shabby chic feel that is on point for the Maldives. The service from the entire staff was friendly and helpful, especially from our personal butler Ahmed. We had a room above the water with it's own pool and... More

You can really feel that you're separated from the real world into this magical land of rest and relaxation. With 5 star or more service, food, rooms and etc. The cleanliness of the island which makes you feel safe anywhere and the friendly people you see around you each day during my stay.

Our stay at Taj exotica has been amongst one of the best experiences we have had during our travels. The hospitality has been outstanding since the time we landed. On arriving at Male airport we were escorted to our speed boat that took us to the resort, which is located on an island exclusive to it. On arrival at the... More

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa is simply a dream resort! A motorboat waiting for you at the airport whisks you away immediately to this very private island. The welcome team on alighting with a band, photographer and seashell necklace is just the beginning of the pampering you are about to receive. The villas on the sea are just gorgeous. You... More

Wow...A great perfect paradise. I spent 4 days 3 nights there and I wished it didn't come to the end. However, it is very close to the airport therefore we didn't have to spend so much time on a speed boat or sea plane. I tried everything they offered at Taj and it turned out everything was perfect. I would... More

Wish there were emoticons here to express how happy my entire family was on this trip. We began with a surprise of upgradation to the Presidential Villa. Every experience thereafter was a surprise.

We spent 4 days and 4 nights. It was utopian. Beautiful property, wonderfully friendly staff, good food, breath taking cobalt green water and lagoons. Overall, simply fab! Would recommend this to anyone who wants a holiday in paradise.
