We stayed at Taj Exotica in March 2015 with family. Its a heaven on earth. This resort is fantastic and the service beyond expectation. There are truly no words to describe how amazing Taj really is. Every single person we encountered took time to find out if we were comfortable. They expressed genuine warmth and went the extra mile at... More

Incredible property where it is impossible not to relax. The staff are superb and as attentive as it gets. The food is magnificent and there are many options available. Long days in crystal clear water, drinks at the pool bar and long dinners in the warm clear nights. Just fantastic.

Taj Exotica has been very aptly been named because it is exotic in all sense. We were booked into Lagoon Villa from 13th April to 16th April 2015 for the celebrating of my sister in law's 25th Anniversary. The moment we took the ferry from the airport to the resort it was all surreal. The reception area is stunning with... More

Me and my wife visited Maldives from 7-11 April 2015 and we stayed at the delux lagoon villa with plunge pool. Our 1st day didn't start as we thought as we were given a villa too close to the beach which we thought didn't have any sort of privacy. Also we found the bed to be a bit hard for... More

This was one of the best trips we have ever taken! The resort came highly commended but the service we received surpassed our expectations.
