We went back to The Taj Exotica for the second time only because our first experience was the best we had ever at a hotel. Again, we were blown away with their hospitality and service. They took care of everything to the T. My son's food ( he has dietery restrictions) being perfect and brought to us whenever we needed. Nishmita , Shamiz and Hassan were amazing. Can't wait to go back soon!

The Taj Exotica Resort is only a speed boat away from the airport so for those travelling with kids and those who are not too comfortable taking a seaplane this is a great option. The island is surrounded by the pristine blue lagoon and is home to some marine life. They have access to aqua sports and have a dive centre to fulfill all your water adventures. Would recommend booking a snorkelling cruise to see the coral reef and marine life. The rooms are excellent and the beaches, swimming pool are maintained very well and are very clean. Food options are predominantly indian, their other restaurants are not operational currently. Special mention to Sena, kalpenna, mhelen, Ashraf and Riaz who took care of us during our meals. Thank you Adam for taking care of our stay and being there for us. The diving centre team are excellent, would recommend giving them a shot and specially if your are a first timer, rest assured you're in safe hands. Alcohol prices are standard as such with most other Maldives properties. Room tip : stay in the water villa for 2 days and 2 days in another room if you like going to the sea mostly.

Taj Exotica Maldives has to be one of the best places I've stayed in recent times. You feel extremely safe here with all employees wearing masks throughout (the proper way). Bala, who is the restaurant manager was the highlight of our trip. He was so warm and he kept checking in on us throughout the trip. Ensured that we had a great time. We were welcomed by Ahmed (the Duty manager) who was nice enough to give us a property tour. Ahmed (our personal butler) was available throughout, he ensured that all our requirements were met, recommended activities, took pictures for us and made us feel home. Rifau, Ashraf, Kalpanee were always genuinely smiling at the restaurant and are great conversationalists. Make sure you ask Rifau for food recommendations. Anurag at the bar makes the best cocktails and is impeccable at his job. Nitin the resort manager did make some awesome recommendations like the Molten chocolate, he'd step by now and then to make sure everything is ok. We stayed here 5 nights and the property was super clean. We snorkeled everyday and had Hookah at the equator bar. Tried almost every cuisine (food never disappoints). Thank you for maing our stay a memorable one.
