Naturally heart shaped island of Taj coral reef, Maldives is a perfect getaway for Indians. The property is situated 32km from male city so it takes about 40 mins to reach by speedboat. We stayed in water villa for 3 nights, which was very spacious and modern with all the amenities included. It had large patio seating area, outdoor shower and direct access to excellent snorkelling in the lagoon. Reef’s main buffet restaurant is latitude open for all major meals, while Open the grill offers Italian and Mexican. Romantic private villa dinning experience is also available. I would definitely recommend having Indian food as they do really really good job with it. Actually everything on menu is very well done from breakfast to dinner. Other facilities include jiva spa for all the different ayurvedic therapies and pampering yourself. Then you have water sports & dive centre which offers different courses and water sports (starting from USD 60/- pp upto USD 200/- pp). I would definitely suggest doing snorkelling around the island( equipment is free) and canoeing (free for 1st hour) and scuba diving (185USD pp). The water is so clear that you can see coral and fishes without going into water, sand is so clean and soft that you can spend whole day at beach. Swimming pool has the perfect view of crystal clear water surrounding the island. There’s also a fish feeding session at 5pm along with tea and snacks. Overall Taj coral reef is a recommended choice for families and specially for Indians looking for luxury in budget with no compromise on the services and treatment. Recommendation: stay at water villa only as the beach villa is not that good plus comparatively the services is less there.

This is our second visit to the Taj. Last year we went as a couple and this year we brought our family, including our 7 month old granddaughter. As last year, we had the most fabulous holiday. All the family thoroughly enjoyed their holiday.. The staff are, without exception, just wonderful. A special mention to Sajanie, Suman, Hussain, Najah, Salim, Isuzu & Rana who looked after us all extremely well during our stay. It really is the most perfect holiday destination. We can’t wait to return.

Awesome experience. We stayed 2N at beach villa & 1N at water villa. Both were fantastic. Quick service. housekeeping was done twice in a day. We were welcomed with juice and cold towel followed by orientation of resort. Evening high tea was complementary along with stingray feeding at main beach. Breakfast : Continental Buffet and every day different menu for a la carte. Good concept to avoid wastage of food. Meal: I would suggest to go for a la carte menu(cost will be approx 100$ per couple) rather than meal package(cost will be approx 140$per person per day). All restaurants are good. We would love to visit again.

We got married in November and wanted to go to Maldives for our honeymoon. Our obvious choices were Taj Exotica, Taj Coral and Sheraton but we settled with the lesser expensive cousin of Taj Exotica -- Taj Coral and we were happy! Our complete experience from airport to airport was nothing short of amazing. The weather was rough and it was raining when we had reached but we were escorted by the Taj team who were ready with umbrellas. We were welcomed with hot towel and ice tea and then escorted to our room. We had taken 2 nights in Beach Villa and 2 nights in Water Villa. The highlight of our trip was food. Since me and my wife both are strictly vegeterian, we were doubtful initially but the food was amazing. They do not have regular buffets but instead you can order from the menu (which is think is good since it would lead to lesser wastage of food). Anyone visiting Maldives - do take the half board package as everything is very expensive. Around 4 PM they have high tea and snacks along with fish feeding. There is also nice Jiva Spa which is again a good experience. You can get the snorkeling equipment without charge from their diving center. Overall it was a good experience and recommended for people who want to relax. There isn't much to see in Maldives so take a good property and relax during your stay.
