About Taj Exotica Resort And Spa, Emboodhu Finolhu

5-star Maldives resort with pool and spa, 15 minutes to Malé

In South Malé Atoll

Located on the private Maldivian island in South Malé Atoll, Taj Exotica Resort And Spa is a 15-minute boat ride to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. The capital, Malé, is a 15-minute boat ride and home to the presidential palace, Friday Mosque, and local markets.

Sunset lagoon cruising

From the resort's white sand beaches, it's easy to find adventures in the surrounding lagoon or ocean. Scuba divers can explore more than 20 nearby dive sites through the dive center, and a lagoon cruise aboard a traditional dhoni boat is a romantic way to watch the sunset.

Overwater dining

24 Degrees is a great spot for breakfast along the beach, and Deep End offers fine dining over the water. You can take a refreshing dip in the infinity pool or work out at the gym, and visit Jiva Grande Spa for Indian treatments, yoga, and meditation.

Beachfront or over-water

The private island resort has 64 villas, beachfront or over the water, where you can sunbathe on your private patio and go online using free WiFi or watch flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. Minibars have organic snacks, and you can make coffee with the espresso maker.

Whoops!
Everything was going quite well for our 8 night stay until the last night. We were having our last dinner on the beach and enjoying the views. I had ordered an expensive bottle of 1999 white wine which I tasted and sent back because it was bad---turned to vinegar. A few minutes later, the Wine Steward showed up with the Butler and one other staff. The Wine Steward tried to intimidate me into accepting the bottle even though it was bad---a serious breech of hospitality. Needless to say, that put a damper on our last evening. Our housekeeper, Madkeen, was excellent, and the Butler, Adi was very good. Were it not for the incident with the wine, I would have given the resort a 5 star rating.
