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. I cannot stress the attention to detail that Mohammed gave to us and also Ahmed, who we loved... More

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. From the swings and hammocks made in the middle of the ocean to the villas, We loved them all. The staff was very polite and helping especially... More

We stayed at Taj Exotica for 7 days before heading off to Dubai to spend 3 nights in the Burj Al Arab.The highest compliment I can give the Taj is that on reflection I wished we spent all the holiday at the Taj instead of moving onto the Burj. I'm not nocking the Burj as the service and facilities there... More

I can certainly vouch for all the excellent reviews for this resort, it is sensational and pure luxury. We booked a lagoon villa which was really nice. It’s the little things that really makes this place stand out, for example, the butler for your room that can organize anything you want via a simple call. Whenever you have breakfast the... More

We stayed at the Taj Exotica for our honeymoon immediately following a massive in-residence wedding hosted by us at the Taj West End at Bangalore, India. Our experience at the west end was a cut above the rest and we naturally were expecting continuity in the level of service here. The pros: the resort, room amenities and activities (I.e snorkeling,... More

I can now see where this resort got its name: TAJ Epicurean Xtraordinary Opulent Tropical Idyllic Calming Alluring My partner and I finally arrived here on Sat 30/1/15 after missing our first night due to a technical problem with one of our connecting flights. Once we arrived the "missed night" did not dampen our stay and was immediately forgotten. You... More

The Taj was a little slice of heaven. Just off the plane and a convenient 20 minute boat ride, you find yourself swept away in paradise with a private island feel. If you want to be alone, and want to relax- this is the place for you. Couples who want to lock themselves in their beautiful romantic house which is... More
