While snorkelling we were surrounded by 100's of fish of difference varieties which felt very special. The food was also amazing!! I can't wait to come back to this... More

Really enjoyed it. It was a lovely property like other Taj hotels all over the world. However we found that the general service in the island was not at the top notch. There was no consistency, specially at main restaurant and the bar service. The lady who served us at the bar next pool was amazing. Sorry we forgot her... More

The best aspects of this resort are its staff, its food and its location - and specifically in that order. We have travelled extensively and it is rare to find people who are more passionate and committed to what they do. We stayed in a Deluxe Delight Beach Villa and it was spacious with all the facilities you would expect... More

It can get a little overwhelming choosing a property to stay at when one decides to visit Maldives - but I am really glad we zeroed in on Taj Coral Reef! The property is a 45 minute speedboat ride away from Male airport. If you plan to visit Male during your stay you should keep this in mind. If you... More
