"Its home and paradise, two in one!"
We had a very lovely short (unfortunately, but we will definitely stay longer next time) stay at Taj Exotica in Oct 16. Already upon arrival from far away you could already tell that it is heaven on earth. Its blue lagoon water simply shone from the distance, making the resort stand out like a small pearl in the ocean. Even though island itself was quite small (it will take you only 15mins to walk around it), the villas and facilities were very nicely and cosily located. We stayed at deluxe lagoon villa and really loved every single bit of that place! Our villa was number 112 and it didn't face Male direction, so it didn't feel like it was 15 mins of boat ride from airport at all. We really enjoyed the pillows at Taj, that we even looked them up and ordered from Ploh, hoping to bring some Taj experience home. But somehow they turned out to be not as soft and comfy as the ones at Taj :( The food and the beaches were amazing. The staff were extremely friendly in every way. We really loved the yoga class in the morning and daily stringrays and sharks feeding. Compared to other five star resorts that we stayed at in Maldives, Taj Exotica is not only a top notch luxury experience, but also a very good value for money. We are looking forward to be back!
"Stay in Paradise !!"
I stayed in Taj Exotica Maldives last year in Oct 15. And even after a year I am there to write a review about this property is in itself a proof how mesmerised my stay was in Taj Exotica Maldives. Maldives is a beautiful place and the property like Taj Exotica Maldives - on a separate island is like a paradise. The exciting welcome once you reach the property, welcoming staff, beautiful villas in which we stayed, all the luxurious items in the villa, as if we were staying on a private island. We stayed in the say facing villa. The food there was mouth watering. All the deserts were so heavenly and we felt like we were not away from India. We did many water activities there which were good and safe too. They had an activity of feeding an unusual fish in evening, we saw that too. The services of the resort like spa was also worth trying and infact not to miss. Being a honeymoon destination, the resort has many such romantic and beautiful moments to share things llike they have a swing in the ocean (not in too deep area). The hotel also provide a complimentary photo shoot. They made us every moment special and I can never forget this heavenly place on the earth, friendly and attentive staff and unforgettable hospitality. This property is really like a pearl in the Indian Ocean. A must visit Thank you guys for making it a "Bucket list moment - ticked" for my life.
We spent the most amazing 5 days on the island. From the pick up at the airport right to our departure we experienced nothing but amazing service. All the staff go out of their way to make your stay extremely comfortable. Our villa was always impeccable, the views were something else, walked out of the villa straight into the beach/ sea. Every single meal was outstanding, whether you ate at Deep End, Teppanyaki, or 24 degrees. The full moon barbecue was something special, having dinner on the beach with the full moon above and great food, could not ask for a more special occasion. I celebrated my birthday during our stay, without a mention from ourselves, the staff went all out of their way to make the day something extraordinary. The chocolate, petals, birthday cake and champagne when we got back to the room. Our butler Shamiz could not do enough, he was always friendly and ready to assist with whatever we required. Highly recommended. The only thing that might be a slight negative is the air traffic, but everything else makes up for it.
"A Trip to Paradise - Again"
This is our second trip to the Maldives (six nights/great weather) and the family wanted to stay again in the Taj because the first experience was so amazing. See our last review - "Take a trip to paradise". Amazingly, the experience was just as great and many staff members remembered us. They even kept a picture of us from last year (small details matter). It was like coming home. Thank you Taj Exotica team!
We had a unforgettable overall experience. We stayed there end of November for 5 days. Everything was immaculate, from the excellent service of all the staff, to the food, to our water villa...etc. The resort was actually fully booked at the time, but we never felt this. It gives you the feeling of being completely relaxed in its quietness. I cannot think of any negative aspect of this place. We would definitely come back again, and would highly recommend this resort!
