"My favorite destination!"
This was my second time at the Taj Exotica and it definitely it my favorite property! Three things that truly make this hotel a paradise are 1. Location - It's got the largest lagoon in Maldives with turquoise blue waters and pristine white sand beach front 2. Food - Is truly exceptional, whether you're looking for authentic Indian or continental. The Deep End restaurant has a fantastic menu of Italian dishes that will leave you craving for more. 3. Staff - Keeping in line with Taj's exceptional service, the staff at Taj Exotica is really warm and hospitable. They go all out to ensure that your experience is like none other. An example of their hospitality is that when I was flying back from Male, I bumped into our butler from our first stay at the airport. He went out of his way to get us a parting gift, a gesture that I have not experienced anywhere else. Besides, the property itself is truly amazing. The water bunglows with their ocean view are something else. If you want to relax and be treated like you're in heaven, this is the place to go!
Our time at Taj Exotica was truly amazing. We spend a few days there for our honeymoon and the staff went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible from the moment they picked us up from the airport by boat to the moment they dropped us off. The hospitality here is one of the best I've experienced. We stayed in an over water deluxe lagoon villa with a private pool, which was stunning. We spent a lot of time at the villa and in the pool and enjoyed every moment. All of the facilities on the resort are top notch as well, and a choice of dining options came in handy as well. The water surrounding the island on all sides was clean and clear for miles out and you can see a variety of marine life at any time. Everything about this stay made our trip unforgettable, and we will definitely be returning the the islands and very likely to return to Taj. Highly recommended! (One note: the islands in general are obscenely pricey to be prepared to spend outrageous amounts on meals and drinks as well as any additional services or activities.)
"Best. Resort. Ever"
Visited with my wife and 6 month old son. So let me break it down for you: 1) Food - Why would I start with food while reviewing one of the best resorts in Maldives' Taj surprised us the most with the quality of food during all our meals, to the extent that we called out the chef to applaud him. Each dish in every cuisine we tried was heavenly. 2) Rooms - We booked a lagoon villa room. Be ready to indulge with Molton Brown toiletries, private infinity plunge pool and top notch furnishing. You can walk down or jump directly into the lagoon from your room. 3) Service - Outstanding. Each of the nearly 100 staff at the resort greets and smiles at you anytime of the day. They even placed a soother, wipes and a welcome card in the baby crib. 4) Location - The proximity to Male is actually a huge advantage as the resort is located just a short and comfortable 15 mins ferry ride from the airport. Further, you can walk almost a km into the lagoon in only knee deep turquoise blue water. We were not bothered with the aircraft noise at all during our 5 day stay. 5) Beach - Gorgeous white sand beach. You can find clean beach chairs (and even a hammock) always stocked with water and towels through the length of the beach. Unfortunately, the reef around the resort is completely destroyed. Very little marine life left around the lagoon area. Not just Taj, El Nino has bleached nearly 90% of the reef in Maldives. To be fair, Taj is trying to restore by planting some reef at the resort. The coral garden snorkelling tour which is around 15 mins by speed boat is nice, but need to shell out USD 65++. PS - Do you offer some discount for returning customers' :)
"The Honeymoon Capital of the World 😍"
The best holiday experience ever ever and ever! Everybody knows about the courteous staff & wonderful hospitality of TAJ but believe me for honeymoon your stay shall be the epitome of your lifetime memories. We stayed and are still staying at the Deluxe beach villa with a private pool and this room with a couple hammock hanging between the shades of trees besides your private pool facing your private beach along with "molten brown" bath accessories is nothing less than heaven on earth. The best part of the whole stay is when we came from our dinner the TAJ team surprised us with a bathtub filled with heavenly foam topped with beautiful rose petals, seeing it upon entering your room itself makes your wife cry with tears of happiness. We have one more night at the Lagoon villa but this room is so so so exquisite that we are not willing to leave it. Trust me people, if its your honeymoon there is no place better than this. Thank you the whole taj team for making the 1st holiday of a married couple so splendid that we shall remember you for our entire life. 😊😊😊
