    Beautiful location and friendly staff”

    Taj Exotica is an amazing place. Very conveniently located 20 mins from Male airport. At the airport we were greeted by a Taj representative who helped us to the boat. we landed at 9pm and had no issues with pick up unlike other hotels which need morning arrival. People often mention about air traffic noise. Its not that frequent and only lasts seconds. the place is so beautiful that you don't really care. On arriving at resort we were taken directly to our room by our butler. checkin was done at our villa. very smooth. he answered all our questions very patiently and through out our stay was extremely helpful. We chose to stay 4 nights in Deluxe Water Villa with plunge pool. Excellent room. walk to the room at night is beautiful with loads of fishes in lagoon. View from room is amazing and has direct access to lagoon & ocean to snorkel. Overall our stay is memorable and we definitely recommend Taj Exotica for its location and stay

    Unforgettable”

    Our stay at Taj Exotica was absolutely unforgettable and beyond expectations. It was our first time in the Maldives and we chose Taj Exotice because of its location close to Male as we only stayed for 3 nights. The travel from Male airport was only a 25 minute boat ride and we were picked up by a resort representative at the arrivals and then immediately escorted to the boat. Everything went really smooth and fast. Upon our arrival at the resort jetty, we were warmly welcomed by the staff who took us straight to our in-water Deluxe PoolVilla. The villa was incredible, very clean and had its own private pool with ocean view. It is worth wile mentioning that the sea around the Deluxe Pool Villas is not ideal for swimming as the sea bottom is mostly corals and therefore not comfortable to step on. However the beach on the opposite side of the island is really incredible with clean white sand and crystal blue water. The lagoon surrounding the Island is huge and there is endless space to swim around in. The whole stay was a very secluded experience and although the resort holds around 60 or so villas and the island is quite small (only approx 700x50 m), we felt a high level of privacy throughout the stay. Every staff member was extremely helpful and friendly and the general service level very high! We a private butler at our service who hap very helpful and made us feel welcome. The food was excellent although prices are quite high, however is seems to be the general tendency in Maldives. We did not enjoy the "fancy" sea food restaurant called Deep End as we thought the food was way too overpriced. However the more modest restaurant 24 Degrees, which is also where daily breakfast is served, was lower priced and the food great with a lot of variety. We did expect the trip to be a costly one and it sure was however we still feel the money was well spend. The only thing we found unreasonably prices was 30 minutes rental of jet skis at USD 175 net/pax! To summarize,

    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!

'Free transfer' was what sold us. Check in and check out was smooth. Loved the library. Very private. They clean the room almost every time. Overall really really good.
