Decided I celebrate my wife's 50th at Taj Coral Reef. I chose Taj because of the hospitality they provide. From the time we checked-in to the time we checked out the service, food, staff and ambience is impeccable. I express my sincere gratitude to Mr.Abdul to providing an extraordinary birthday experience for my wife's 50th. The food was amazing. Thanks to Mr.Dinesh, Mr. Satya and Mr.Karthik we have the best Indian. The service is the best. Thanks to Ms.Sajanie, Mr.Hussain &Mr.Oli for an outstanding service. To the entire team of Taj Coral Reef, thank you for giving us a memorable celebration.

Hotel's Favorite
The moment we got off our international flight and cleared immigration, we were met by a Taj Coral Reef representative at arrivals. Within minutes, we were then escorted to a private boat for transfer to the island. Arriving at the island we were met by one of the hotel staff who greeted us with traditional soft drink made of mixed berries. We were escorted a few metres past the unique reception area, open air restaurant Bokkura, where we had all our sumptuous breakfasts and a few dinners and the bar where we had most lunches and drinks during our stay. Right behind the bar, was the South American restaurant adjoining the infinity pool and a lagoon area which was perfect for snorkelling and to watch the diverse marine life as well as the Taj's efforts to restore coral reefs etc. We were taken to our over-water villa - a semi detached property over the lagoon looking out to the ocean with a lot of privacy at the back. The room was very spacious and equipped with a nice king-size bed with plush pillows, a third bed (if required as we were 3 in our party). There was a separate storage area for luggage and the bathroom, equipped with a shower and full bath was rather spacious with open floor to ceiling windows towards the ocean. The outside deck was very beautiful with deck chairs and direct access to the lagoon. The food at all restaurants including the South American/Mexican restaurant with outside seating overlooking the infinity pool and lagoon were exceptional. Dinesh, the executive chef was always supervising the preparation and we had left the planing of our entire menu - all a la carte, in his care as the choice was vast and deciding on anything was the hardest part. The food was typically Taj quality and portions were extremely generous. The general manager Abnash Kumar is simply an amazing well educated and well travelled person who is a pleasure to talk to and we spent many an hour talking to him about the hotel and all his experiences in South Africa, India and esp. the Andamans. While the resort could do with a bit of a renovation and redevelopment, we are confident that Abnash will be very successful executing the project. The island is nice and compact. It has a full fledged Padi certified Dive centre and Tiiam was simply great escorting helping the novices to some guided open water snorkelling or even diving. The dive team were simply great and proficient. Sajanie in Bokkura was very personal at all times and made sure we were always taken care of during breakfasts/dinners. The resort had a well equipped gym and full feature Jiva spa. This was a very enjoyable 4-day break that we had prior to a longer stay at another island. Our special thanks to Dinesh, the exec chef, Satya the sous chef, Suman the bartender, Adam and Zain at reception and of course the entire team at Taj Coral Reef headed by Abnash Kumar for making our stay a thoroughly enjoyable one.

Lets start on positive note, lets start with Mr. Zaki at reception, very warm and friendly person. Next comes "The Bokura", it was AWESOME ! Fantastic food variety, very engaging staff, Mr. Dinesh D, F&B manager. He also made us experiment with some Thai food. His selction of menu was good. Sajnee & Hussain, looked very well after us. Kept us entertained with lively talks. Mr. Abdul Hadi, Front office manager, was very helpful & friendly. One thing I liked very much here is that each & every person was all fired up to make guests welcome, but never pushy. Now for Complaint ! We missed water sports sorely. Being holed up on an Island resort with nothing to do except eat, sleep repeat, was very boring. One would expect lots of water activities on an Island resort. I would suggest some guided water activities to be looked into. Not all those who come to Island resort are pros at surfing, Canoeing or scuba diving. If guided water activities are included it would make the stay more enjoyable. Mr. Abdul Hadi informed us that he was bringing in a band. So that part is taken care of. One more thing, since arrivals and departures cant always match with the resort checkin/checkout timings, guest should be allowed to rest in their villas . They really dont have a choice, no options available, once they leave resort, or arrive before time. Its not fair to charge us for these hours which are not in our control.

We stayed at the Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa for 3 nights on our recent trip to Maldives. We reached the property after a 40-minute boat ride from the airport. Our stay at the hotel was one of the most pleasant ones in recent times, and it was because of the staff who were extremely polite and helpful right from the time we stepped foot on the property. They ensured that the guests had a pleasant stay. Our check-in was smooth we were quickly shown to our room. The property has both ocean facing rooms and water villas, we tried both, they had comfortable beds and clean bathrooms along with a well stacked mini bar with other snacks (depending on the package). We had taken the all-inclusive package, which I would recommend for drinks lovers as it includes all three meals and alcohol (unlimited). The property had every thing that a 5-star hotel has like spa, fitness centre, swimming pool, a dive centre where you could rent scuba diving, kayaking and snorkelling equipment from. The weather was pleasant during our stay, it was not very hot and it rained for some time on one of the days. The food was good with fairly decent selection of Maldivian, Indian, Chinese and European items on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main restaurant, while the Reef Bar also served burgers and pizzas for lunch and dinner. You can see a lot of fishes in the clear waters and all the snorkelling enthusiasts had a great time. The hotel has a ritual of feeding fishes every day at 5.00 pm that’s when you can see a lot of fishes like sting rays, reef sharks as they come right up to the beach.

The best trip we have been till date! About the resort, any number of compliments would be less for the resort, especially the staff ( best staff). The location is serene, the rooms are beautiful, the food is amazing and the most hospitable people I have ever interacted with. Every single person of the staff has smile every time. How often do you see the chef asking you multiple times a day how the food is , at your table! The food was palatable, almost every dish was splendid.kudos to the chef!! The manager, the people at reception, the restaurant staff, the bar staff , the room service staff and every other staff at the resort are utmost respectable for this hospitile nature and the smile with which they great every person visiting the resort. I remember few names whom I wouldnt miss to mention, Sajanie - staff at the restaurant, Abdul - Manager. I wish i knew all their names, would have listed every single one of them as they are worth it. Thanks for making our journey worth remembering and worth recommending. To sum up everything, the best experience ever!
