Just left out magical island and the Taj is truly wonderful. The island with beach and water villas are all great and we had a delux water villa with our own pool and there was nothing to fault. Lots of great Molton Brown toiletries. One of the best thing about the Taj is the happy and smiling staff that nothing... More
