We stayed at Taj coral reef for 4 nights. It was our family vacation and we had an amazing time. Beautiful beaches, lovely resort and as usual wonderful hospitality. Special mention for Mr. Ashraf and Imali, they took really good care of us and made sure our Mom got Jain food for each meal. Also, Afzal from house keeping and the staff at the bar were really nice.

It’s a gorgeous resort on a beautiful island. We, a family of 4 (2 kids) stayed at the indulgence water villa for 4 nights. Had a lovely time, the ocean view from the room was breathtaking. The villa was done so tastefully with a spacious balcony with an access to the sea through a ladder, which was so much fun. The best part for my kids was there was this activity in the evening where they could feed and watch sting rays and reef sharks, something which they never expected to. Now, the service, I must say was impeccable, right from the restaurant to house keeping and the checkin formalities. I would like to mention Ashraf from the restaurant Bokkura for the impressive service provided by him, especially with regards to our kids, he was so considerate when my little one fell sick and saw to it we were comfortable. I want to thank Sajanie who is really sweet and was always there, and went out of her way to see that the everyone was served well. Also Hussain and Kannan for their efficient services. Would like to thank Russel from the house keeping department for the lovely job that he did always with a smile. The food at Bokkura multi cuisine restaurant was pleasing to the palate with so many options to choose from. The chettinad thaali was too good. Don’t forget to try the awesome cocktails and mocktails from the reef bar. Had a wonderful time in this place and going back with so many lovely memories.

We would like to Thank you and your amazing team for making our stay such a fabulous experience. Everything you want to experience about Maldives, be it the crystalline emerald waters, beautiful beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see with sparkling white sand under the limitless blue skies, swaying palm trees, and of course, luxurious overwater villas & beach Villas and to top it all great and genuine Customer service. The Beach Villas are an experience on its own and if you want an unforgettable experience, with a breathtaking view then its gotta be the water villas. At Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa we experienced all of it. The Resort itself is set on a heart shaped island and surrounded with thousands of years old spectacular corals. Multi Cuisine, delicious food, cooling beverages, there is something for everyone. There is lots to do for the active tourists and perfect for us who just wanted to relax and live the ultimate dream of luxury and tranquillity. They give you the snorkeling gear complimentary and there are many sections where even the non swimmers can see the spectacular corals. The feeding of the sting ray, accompanied by the black tip sharks on the shores daily at 5pm is a must watch. Walk around the Island post dinner has its own charm and a good idea post binging. The gym is small and perfect and surprisingly my husband and son used it. Fabulous Staff, from the efficient speedboat pick up, warm reception staff, restaurant team with endless energy and enthusiasm, they were always 1 step ahead , intuitive and super prompt, genuinely wanting to give us a wow experience daily, a few names I have to mention - Carmin the rockstar who orchestrates the entire team, you are an awesome host Carmin, sharp, efficient and warm, noticed how particular you were about the table settings, superstar Sanjini, Imali"s smile truly welcomes us daily to a great start, busy bee Najah takes time out to stop and greet and chat every time, Ashraf's warm assuring presence, Afagu super prompt, and how can we forget the witty Rana who instantly connects with everyone. Since we are teetotalers, Rana made sure we tried his recommended mocktails daily and we loved it. A big Thank you. Chef Satya, we loved everything you dished out. Jesil at the Spa who welcomed us and always has an interesting story up his sleeves, thank you for all your help. Thanks to Ranjan at the Clinic who helped us with our son's PCR testing and helped nurse a coral cut immediately. The efficient house keeping staff do a fantastic job daily. The dive center team is simply fabulous. And Thank you Abhnash for taking care of us and all so well from welcoming to good byes. We decided to stay at Taj Coral purely as we trusted the brand and were confident esply as this was our 1st trip post pandemic. we Made the right decision and a place we will definitely plan to revisit with friends and family. Thank you.

It was an amazing holiday for us, everything was done flawlessly through out our 3 night stay. Let me call out in parts : Welcome at the airport and Speed boat travel and welcome at Jetty - Awesome and made us felt very important through out Reception welcome and documentation - No waiting and all the paperworks was ready, room kept ready and associate to walk us to the room immediately . Check out was very pleasant and quick room service - Very quick and responsive , never had a miss or delay throughout. Refilling of mini bar and the toiletries could be better as we had remind Restaurants / Bar - Awesome food and a great service for all the meal and menu was very well curated., normally all inclusive packages are most ignored and buffet does not work for packages as they are not serv ed well or people do not take the right portions and waste most of the times. however here it was well served and hot, quick for all orders done. specific to call out Sajinee from the Bokura restaurant was truly amazing at her service and smiling face always . She did serve us all meals and took care of the allergy that my wife had for egg and we had only tell her once during our first meal and she did take care of her for all meals. Diving center -while the service is good but options are too minimal and very highly priced Cleanliness - resort is well maintained for a 17 year old property and very clean Bday decoration - It was very well done just a simple concept of doing the bed deco with leaves and flowers Overall the experience was awesome though we had to stretch our budgets very much to accomodate the Taj Experience and it was worth it we reckon. Again another vacay of ours was done by searching the Locations where taj exists on the world map and then choosing our holiday destination, this continues for 2 decades now of our family taj experience.

The experience at Taj corals reef, Maldives simply put was Awesome. Taj helped us to have an exhilarating family vacation. Thank you to the entire team. Right from the beautiful rooms opening to the turquoise green ocean view, the private beaches, the water activities including the temperature controlled swimming pool, the entire experience has given us beautiful memories. All this coupled with the most accomodating team of Kannan, Hussein, Imali, Suman and Chef Satya ensured that we had a wide variety of cuisine, and all that we asked for, provided with a smile. Even the smallest aspect was taken care of, with ample snacks and nuts replenished daily in the room, water filled colander and wooden ladle made of coconut shells kept at both entrances of the rooms to wash off the beach sands from our feet, separate shower area outside the bathroom, cleaning the sand that we still recklessly carried into the roms multiple times daily, ensuring that we had the most pampered stay. Over and above, it goes without saying that the water activities kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving trained by patient instructors Niaz and Sameer, feeding the sting rays in the evening and just playing on the white clean beach was the best icing of our vacation.

Just the overall experience of the resort is amazing and add to that the flexibility of staff (sorry but I am forgetting the names) to ensure whatever you want is provided! From the time of check in, meals and everything, they are very prompt. we had a 1year old with us and they were very cooperative in fulfilling the food requirements and also provided a crib on our request. the rooms are good and food is great with good veg options. Will plan to visit again :) PS - the wifi is amazing too!
