Deluxe or Regular Villa: Taj Exotica Maldive

Hey all,

I am looking to go on honeymoon to the Maldive this January. Was intending to stay at the Taj Exotica, but am not sure whether to go for the Deluxe or Regular Lagoon Villa.

Can anyone shed any light on the difference between the two and whether it is worth going for the Deluxe?

Many thanks,

Lagoon Villas are semidetached with another so in couples. But closer to the beach and main restaurant. Downside is that you share a terrace though fully covered.

Deluxe Lagoon Villas are detached villas and maybe you will feel it has more privacy. Though a bit far from the main restaurant.

Best are the Deluxe Lagoon Villa with pool and deluxe beach villa with pool.

hope this helps

Lagoon Villas are semidetached and are along side the island in a row. Deluxe lagoon Villas are individual and in a spine protruding jetty. Lagoon villas are closer to the stretch of beach and closer to the main restaurant. Deluxe Lagoon villas have more privacy though far from the main restaurant.

Best are the deluxe lagoon villas with pool and beach villas.

hope this helps

We stayed in a lagoon villa....the very last one, number 125 (before tsunami so don't know if it's changed). This was great as we had no-one to the right of us so it felt very intimate. It is on the edge of the water and not completely in it.

Yes, it is semi detatched, but your outdoor space is completely private. We didn't see or hear our neighbours the whole time. They are very handy in their location (or at least ours was) as we were pretty much bang on in the middle of everything....pool, spa, restaurants.

The deluxe lagoon villas are on a leaf shaped struture further out into the lagoon so you have a further walk - which isprobalby good as you can work off all the wonderful food you'll be consuming.

If I went agai, I'd choose a deluxe lagoon villa simply ofr the detatched aspect, but we still look back on our stay in the lagoon villa findly and it was our best holiday to date.
