Best Moments Of My Life
Being an international journalist, I desperately needed a vacation but could only took out three days for my trip to Maldives with two days stay on the resort with my mother. I must say that anyone who wants to see heaven on earth must once visit this island. The staff is very courteous and did not let us have any hiccups or second thoughts during the trip. Several times, mum and I discussed to prolong the trip as none of us wanted to go back. There were three restaurants on the island with huge menu with some changes daily with another huge menu for drinks. The beds were comfortable and snorkeling was complimentary. The water was crystal clear.

Unforgettable experience - 10 out of 10
We stayed for a night, but Taj Exotica offered unforgettable experience, in a good way of course! We arrived there from Maafushi island, although they offered us for free airport transfer, but we did not take it since we would like to save time - Maafushi to Taj is faster than Maafushi-Airport-Taj. We were welcomed by the Taj staff with their brightest smile and requested to take picture together as a family (and I forgot to ask why as I was stunned with the view). Our 11-month boy was also given a stingray doll to keep him cheerful. We requested for early check-in, and we got what we wanted. We also asked whether there was a possibility for having a late check-out as we would have late flight tommorow night. Usually, Taj charged their guests for about $200 for late check-out until 6.00pm (our flight was around 8.50pm), but later on it turned out they allowed us for late check-out with free of charge. All their staff were nice and warm. They smiled and were friendly to our baby boy. The food was well-executed and the service was on top level. The facilities and ambience were excellent, I found myself in one of the best resorts I ever stayed. Before we checked-out, we were given a unique, yet beautiful photo album which included our photo in the first place (the phit was taken in the first day we arrived). The staff also ensured us to arrive at the airport safely, all of our luggages were handled properly and they took us into the airport until the departure gate. Though I felt pesimistic with the hotel (since I had difficulties to contact them from Indonesia before we went there), and it took two days for them to respond my email, all were paid-off. Keep it up Taj! Look forward to staying there again!
