We stayed for 14 days in this incredible hotel. The staff was courteous, and friendly, you feel like to be at home from the first day on. We had high expectations, because the reviews are amazing and especially I know another 5 star hotel at Maldives, but this was exceeding by far. No matter from service, quality of food, cleanliness,... More

I wasn't prepared for the transition from a nicely appointed cruiser with cold towels and bottled water to a welcome at the dock with a drummer. We were early but our butler (yes, a butler services six villas) arranged for our luggage, escorted us to breakfast under shade trees on the beach and then walked with us along the sand... More

As soon as I reached the place I was mesmerized by its beauty. Transparent waters and amazing hospitality made my stay truly wonderful, the India cuisine in the 24 Degree restaurant was amazing. The amazing snorkeling trip in crystal clear water was to die for. A must go place specially for couples.

We stayed here for five days in December 2014. While planning the trip, I had come across some rave reviews about this place and hardly any negative ones. This in itself appeared as a major testimony to the kind of experience Taj Exotica was delivering and hence we went ahead with our bookings. From the moment we were received at... More

Had the pleasure of spending 7 nights at the Taj in January 2015 as part of my honeymoon. You could not wish for a better place stay. The staff, food and entire island are amazing!

We stayed at this beautiful resort for our honeymoon for 5 nights and 6 days. At first we were torn between staying at Taj and a few other properties. In retrospect, we are so glad we chose Taj. Its location is ideal - only a few minutes by boat from the airport (at least for us that was ideal depending... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort in December for our honeymoon. We were in the bungalow on the lagoon, which was perfect. We had our own private yard with a hammock, back porch, infinity pool, and beachfront just within steps.

We stayed at this resort for a week in February 2015 as a family of four (with our two daughters aged 12 and 15). It was our first visit to the Maldives and the place itself is as spectacular and as beautiful as the brochures you see: it is truly an island paradise. The Taj is a lovely resort, with... More

This purest form of serenity ever is what I got from this location. The resort is very well made. They have made proper utilization of God's beauty and carved out a beautiful resort.
