We had a short stay at this resort to celebrate our tenth anniversary. Let me quickly get through what could be improved - the boat used for the transfer from Male airport to the island was ill-equipped for choppy waters, the Wi-Fi in the rooms could be made more reliable, and the hot water in our room was a little...

While my review comes in a little late, I have nothing but the best to say about the Taj Vivanta. THe resort is gorgeous and we stayed in one of the villas with access to the ocean. The experience is unparallelled. 24 hour access to protected waters... incredible snorkeling and fantastic food. We were given snorkels on arrival and took... More

We stayed on the villas by the rooms 220 - 222 in the Vivanta by Taj Coral Reef last month. The rooms had the best stretch of the private beach and the jetty nearby provided the option of exploring the sandy beach completely to its end. The villas were superbly furnished and spotlessly clean. Called the Charm Beach villas (as... More

My wife and I stayed at this resort for our honeymoon. We've been talking about Maldives for years and were very excited about our trip. Our travel agent booked this resort as our accommodations and we were not disappointed. We opted and upgraded to the water villas. This is a definite must if you stay here. Each morning, we ventured... More

Taj vivanta is one of the finest hotel I have visited. The stay was pleasant. Food was delicious. And the staff was supportive as well. Location of the resort is very beautiful. Was great fun in snorkeling. Overall the resort is worth your money.

My family and I had a memorable stay at this property for almost a week. Since the hotel is located on a Reef the marine life is just spectacular. We stayed in the Water villa which was very spacious and gave us the unique opportunity to just dive in and explore the exotic marine life whenever we fancied. My son... More

Staff are very friendly, they always smiling whenever I asked sth. It made me really feel good. Swimming pool, beach, feeding big birds and fish was quite interesting nd especially Spa was really nice, you should try it. Bad point: from airport, takes 1.5 hour by speedboat so if you have terrible seasick, its not the best option but if... More
