Vivanta Taj was far more excellent than we thought. The service, food, the corals, and the amenities are top notch. This is definitely a paradise for honeymooners, especially vegetarians. The coral all-inclusive package was perfect as we were allowed to eat at all the restaurants and it also included a session of snorkeling after which we were inspired to do... More

We stayed in an indulgent water villa for 7 days between 7.4.15 - 14.4.15. Let me start by saying because we were restricted to travelling in the Easter holidays it is not a budget holiday. That said, this was one of the nicest, relaxing and luxurious holidays I have ever enjoyed. Hembadhu Island is small which makes it seem very... More

Went there with 4 other girl friends. We did quite some research before and decided this resort would be the most suitable one for us. It was the perfect size, we could walk from one side to the other size of the island within 15-20min. The rooms were up to expectation. The only thing is that for the room that... More

Spent 5 days here on our honeymoon. The property is about 45 mins from the airport by speedboat. Being received at the airport, the speedboat, being given a quick go-around of the hotel while we were being escorted to the villa, check-in in the villa; pizza at their outdoor pizzeria, large spread at latitude for breakfast and lunch; dinners at...

I just spend a 5 days trip at this resort with my girl friends over the past Easter Holiday. Before the holidays, we were impressed with their reservation team. Coz among all the resorts we have enquired, Vivanta by Taj was the swiftest and most detailed one. That was also one of the reasons why we decided to spend our... More

We just came back from an amazing holiday from Maldives, having stayed at Taj Vivanta. We had chosen the water villa and wanted our stay to be special, as it was a special wedding anniversary and we were travelling with our toddler, who was experiencing her first proper beach holiday. Everything was spectacular at the resort and it stayed faithful... More

The resort is located on a one hour boat ride from Male airport. Once, there, you are absolutely submerged in luxury. We had booked a water Villa where the room deck had a ladder climbing down into the crystal clear ocean. Snorkeling was a day to day thing from the room. The rooms were very spacious and the bathroom, especially... More

The staff in this place really go out of their way to assist - be it taking care of our 4 year old when we went Snorkeling or a photo shoot (which was complimentary!!). We enjoyed 6 nights and would certainly recommend the island to families. My son is still not happy about returning from Vivanta and that says it... More
