In December 2015, we spent our unforgettable honeymoon at Taj Exotica and from the minute we were picked up at the airport to the moment when we were dropped off there two weeks later every single moment was perfect. The resort, the spotless villa, the restaurants, the bar, the pools, the beach, the gym, the spa, the dive center -... More

So, we stayed here. On Our Flitterwochen. It was quintessential as they say. From The Pick-up at the airport to Scuba & Snorkelling sessions to the exotic fruit platters, pool side service and a full service Jiva Spa. This hotel has it all. Our request for a room closer to the end of the villa deck was graciously accepted so... More

The food is excellent - especially the Indian and Maldivian dishes at 24 degrees, the pool restaurant is perfect for lunch with... More

We were honeymooners! Our stay at the Taj has been wonderful. Stayed 5 nights and loved every minute. Everything you have seen in the magazines about this country is summed up in this property. This property is a real world Fairyland, as my wife calls it. We stayed in an over water villa with a plunge pool with a panaromic... More

This hotel is simply heaven in earth. After you arrive to Male airport, kind staff of the hotel meets you at the front of the airport. Than a speedboat takes you to the hotel. The ride is almost 20 minutes. When you arrive to the hotel local dancer and drummer welcomes you. You will be directly taken to your room.... More

We visited last year and came away so impressed that we booked again for early 2016. We had an even better time second time round and this was mainly due to all of the staff who are fantastic.

We have come to Taj-Exotica, Maldives for 11 consecutive times and many times we had decided to change our pattern, but after four or five days something snaps in our minds.
