Perfect stay, we notably appreciated the quality of the service and kindness of the staff. The resort is very beautiful and perfectly maintained, well equipped and the location @ 25' from airport by speed boat is an advantage. Different types of food are available and the quality is very good.

Staff were very hospitable, the beaches were amazing, room was superb!
Definitely enjoyed my stay in Taj. The moment you arrived in the island until your departure, the staff will really take care of you. The views were really amazing, and the room was 10/10. Definitely coming back soon!

Great Quick Get away
Rooms & Food
Our stay at the taj was fantastic, a true 5 star resort with great service. Excellent for a short get away given the resort is only 15 min by boat to airport. The only thing to note that from the resort, you can see Male town and a waste incineration plant in the distance, and there is also no house reef - closest snorkel is a boat ride away.
