This was my 4th visit to the Taj Exotica, the last being 5years ago on honeymoon. I was completely enchanted then and felt it couldn't get better but amazingly it has. This Resort has the warmest heart in the Maldives. The accommodation is superb. I love the beach villas but the water villas are equally beautiful with breath taking views... More

The resort simply redefines luxury - be it the place, the people, the villas or the food. The place is simply surreal. You have to be there to believe a place like this can exist. No picture can do justice to this beautiful island. Even when the resort is full capacity, you'll hardly see people around, making you believe you... More

The villas at taj exotica completely live up to what you have heard about them and a bit more. The resort has some amazing scenic spots and is very very photo friendly. There is not much to do around the resort as it is on a lagoon, hence reef snorkeling and scuba diving requires a trip into the ocean away... More

Belated write up. We visited in february for our honeymoon. Amazing place, great service from start to finish. You are greeted by their staff as soon as you arrive in the Maldives and are put in their own speedboat for a short ride to the island. The island is small and peaceful with the most lovely staff. Very relaxing and... More

Came back from the Mt.Everest expedition in May, and needed to take a couple of days out for rest and recuperation. Maldives is paradise, and The Taj Exotica is fabulous in every way. The rooms/villas, the water, the food and service, all par excellence - proud of the Taj group of hotels as an Indian. Travelling for work and leisure... More

The friendly and efficient airport arrival chaperone certainly knows how to keep a surprise. Their cheerful send off, "enjoy you stay" as you glide out from the airport jetty in the Taj motor boat, doesn't quite prepare the novice visitor at Taj Exotica. Taj does drop a hint here and there on the motor boat. Bvlgari freshen up kit for... More

Taj Exotica checks all the right boxes with respect to the big things you expect from a beach resort. Great location, lovely villas that are classy but also exude a relaxed atmosphere that screams "beach resort", amazing food, excellent spa service, and a dive center that has the best equipment and exceptionally well trained staff. But what makes it truly... More

We travelled here in Feb 2014 for our honeymoon and stayed in an overwater bungalow with plunge pool. The room was amazing having the plunge pool overlooking the ocean. The service throughout the resort was exceptional, our butler organised everything we needed, from snorkelling to dinner reservations. The food was fantastic, with my wife having coeliac disease and needing gluten... More
