Beautifully Blissful
This was my 3rd or 4th stay in this handful of years, it was super as all the other times. Having stayed in a number of 5-star hotel resorts in The Maldives, Taj Exotica ranks high on my list. Whether it is service, beauty (natural or otherwise), food, class, elegance of a bygone era, Indian charm mixed beautifully with Maldivian way of life, convenience to Malé airports (without the possible delays and long waits for air transfers), you can be sure to settle into your holiday very quickly. It is fast becoming my home away from home in The Maldives. Thank-you Taj.

10/10 Exceptional

I travel all around the world and by far this is one of the best places I have ever gone to. The water really is the best you will see in the whole world! It is crystal clear with no seaweed and very calm. This hotel is situated on a lagoon so that makes it also to snorkel and walk far out into the ocean. We got to see stingrays, small sharks, dolphins and cool jellyfish. I absolutely loved her stay and we'll be going back again. The resort thinks of everything to make your stay one of a kind. All of the staff are super helpful. I forgot to bring mascara and the girl in the front, RACHA ordered me one online and had it brought by boat to the island the next day. We went for our honeymoon and this was a perfect honeymoon destination.
