We stepped off the boat after our 24 hours of travel to a warm welcome at the Jetty. I have stayed in many, many hotels and what makes a 4, 5 or 6 star hotel is, yes the location, the destination, the quality of finish but more importantly it is the people. The staff here are very friendly and welcoming.... More

We spent seven nights in May and took direct BA flights from London (forgot just how good it is to fly with BA) that meant we avoided changing planes in the UAE.

From start to finish, the experience at Taj Coral Reef was incredible. Effortless service straight from the airport made us feel right at home, and the wonderful staff lead by Parveen was the perfect mix of attentive and private. Although a small island, the selection of food and beverage was excellent. We have had many friends comment on other experiences... More
