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. We stayed in a Beach Villa and had a fantastic view from our very comfortable bed across our decking, hammock, private piece of beach to the turquoise sea.... More

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

We just returned yesterday night, but unable to accept the reality that we have to return from the Hotel.

As soon as you arrive on the island, the regrettable room rate you're paying is fast forgotten. The resort is tiny, which ensures that the serenity is maintained because of the minimal guests on the island at any one time.
