That is the perfect sentence to describe TAJ EXOTICA! Wow! It is truly a magical place. Since the moment you get in touch with them via email, you know you are going to somewhere special. They treat you like royalty. When you arrive at the airport they have a member of the staff to pick you up and take you... More

This was our second trip to the Taj Exotica Maldives. We first visited 8 years ago for our honeymoon and after that stay knew that if we returned to the Maldives, we'd have to go back to the Taj. From the moment we arrived at the airport to be whisked off in a speedboat to the resort, we knew we'd... More

The people at this resort are really make the experience unforgettable. We we're warmly greeting at the airport and were promptly whisked away to the island where we were received by Ruby and our butler Shau.

We spent the first week of our honeymoon in the Maldives at the Taj Exotica and could not have had a more fantastic experience. Save yourself the research and book this resort!

Luxurious hotel. It was like an experience off the pages of a magazine. Everything spelt luxury, why not? It shouldn't be otherwise considering the rates. We stayed in one of the over water bungalows. Rooms were well appointed with private swimming pool. Different restaurants to eat at. Chef were always willing to modify menu items to suit guest's preference. There... More

Stayed at this resort in February for four days. The overwater villas with private pool are wonderful especially the odd numbered villas. I stayed at villa no. 431 which had an uninterrupted view of the sea, I believe the even numbered villa's have a view of Male city. The property is luxurious, the service is par excellence, the staff is... More
