Taj Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans

Occupying 46 acres on the famed Radhanagar Beach at Havelock Island, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans is a luxurious gateway to a globally significant biodiversity hotspot in the Bay of Bengal.

Fringed by strip of mangroves overlooking the beach, the resort is a homage to the secluded Andaman and Nicobar archipelago stretching for 700 Kms from the southern tip of Burma towards the north of Sumatra; a magical medley of rainforests, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, unspoilt beaches and ancient tribal cultures.

After arriving on the island, guests are welcomed with a traditional song by our young Nicobari colleagues. Designed to showcase and nurture the island’s natural resources, the resort is dotted with 54 modern luxury Villas on stilts under a canopy of Coconut and Palmyra trees; a contemporary haven built without cutting off a single tree.

Guests can rest over the massive buttresses of an Andaman Padauk tree, ruminate by the water lily pond after a lavish massage or hit the treadmill at the fitness centre built around a majestic Mahua tree that soars up one level to the Olympic-length infinity swimming pool. The modish, 1580 sq. ft. plus residences in sustainable plantation timber are inspired by the dwellings of the Jarawa tribe.

Wi-fi internet at the lobby ensures connectivity, while our silent and intuitive service creates a bespoke atmosphere for privacy and romance interrupted only the sound of kingfishers and emerald doves. Taj’s commitment to conservation and sustainable luxury in the archipelago is at the core of the resort’s impeccable facilities and services. Along with our own biogas facility, water bottling plant, a reservoir for rainwater harvesting and partial solar energy, we’ve partnered with the Pollution Control Board to keep the island plastic free while developing a plastic collection centre on the mainland. From biodegradable straws and paper to newer tools developed in training sessions with our associates and the islanders, we’re working consistently on reducing carbon footprint on this paradise.

The resort offers a bouquet of fun activities for children that engage them in the marine and terrestrial ecology of the island. Between picking mangoes, mud apples and mulberries at our bountiful orchards to jungle treks, beach picnics, supervised scuba diving and shell-craft lessons at our vibrant Recreational Center with plenty of post-meal snoozes on villa decks, there isn’t a dull moment for young and curious minds. Meanwhile, adults can dive into sensational dining experiences at our concept restaurants – Turtle House, Shoreline, The Settlers – or luxuriate in beauty and wellness treatments in our Jiva Spa.

The island is an endless source of delight and discovery. Unravel the secrets of the outdoors and underwater life with exclusive experiences in Sport Fishing, Night Kayaking in the mangroves, Scuba Diving, Snorkelling and Forest Treks.

Pleasant stay but resort still in nascent stage in terms of food quality and activities available
I am a regular guest at Taj properties around the world. The resort infra seems to meet the standards of Taj Exotica brand name but the food quality and variety is very limited which is indeed a turn off. Also, food preparation at shoreline was not upto the mark. However we did cherish the seafood at Turtle House. There could have been evening cultural shows etc. for showcasing Andaman and Nicobar's people, their culture and traditions and island's history. Further, evening high tea was not upto the standards of Taj Exotica brand name. And there were no major indulging activities for families with kids and elderly people as well. Overall nice experience but lots of scope for improvement.

Great place for a family holiday
Taj has developed a beautiful property in Havelock in the Andaman rain forests retaining most of the indigenous old trees and on one of the best beaches (Radhanagar) in the island. Room sizes are large and there is no dearth of space in and around the cottages. There are enough activities for the kids to indulge in and I believe some more are likely to be added in the near future.Good snorkeling spots are swimming distance from the resort. The staff are totally committed to making your stay very comfortable making every effort to meet all your quirky needs. Special mention for commendable service are the GM Brij and F&B Payal who are always on the move to ensure that all the guests are taken care of. Settlers dining experience is quite an experience but to my mind a little overpriced. All in all we had a great time at the resort and so did our grand children who thoroughly enjoyed their time at Taj Andamans
