Taj Taj Exotica Resort & Spa

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa

Escape the frenetic pace and chaos of everyday life, in to luxury’s very own lap at Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives. Away from the sparkling lights of Male, this hotel is spread across the Emboodhu Finolhu island in the middle of one of the largest lagoons in Maldives. Renowned for its rich flora and fauna, this tropical isle, also known as the Three Coconut Isle, is situated amidst the coral reefs. A 15-minute speedboat ride from the airport brings you to the idyllic resort surrounded by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Set delicately over the lagoon, this postcard-perfect getaway offers 64 sea-view villas and suites that are luxurious and lavish; yet maintain a fine balance with nature. Our world-famous, award-winning presidential suite is, arguably, the most beautiful place on earth. At Taj Exotica Maldives, you are on Taj Time, where doing nothing is an art form. Time stands still—and yet there is never a dull moment. Within this oasis of calm set in paradise, lounge by the infinity pool or at your private beach, laze in a hammock over the blue waters and just lay below the stars at night. Go on a wildlife-spotting walk. Pure bliss. Savour the best from the culinary world with carefully selected ingredients sourced both locally and globally to please your palate. Enjoy the freshest of seafood at Deep End or choose from the extensive carefully crafted menu at 24 Degrees, where you experience a performance of art assembled on your plate at the theatrical Teppanyaki kitchen. Sip leisurely on your cocktails at the Equator Bar as you take in the awe-inspiring views of fiery Indian Ocean sunsets. Needless to say, each of our restaurants offers a spectacular and unbelievably romantic ocean experience. Enjoy sumptuous in-room and private dining experiences. And be pampered by our world-renowned butlers, who would be happy to arrange a whole range of water sports including snorkelling and scuba diving. Come, create a lifetime of memories every moment in this haven of tranquillity.

Fantastic Service and Food!
Special Mention to Mr BalaKrishnan, Chef Putul, Joanna and Pathum at Equator Bar, and butler Dilip. The entire team made us feel at home and our holiday a memorable one. Definately recommending everyone to enjoy the Taj hospitality.

Beautiful spot
Amazing experience, beautiful scenery. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The stingray feeding was a highlight.

The stay was very refreshing and awesome, would love to come back again.
The staff and everyone were cordial and helpful, enjoyed the live music at the thai restaurant. Really appreciated our butler organizing us 3 out of the 4 rooms we had for late check out as our flight was in the evening. The food was awesome as well. The only problem we had is we had booked 4 rooms deliberately so that the kids can stay in their own room, or else we could have all fit in 3, and even after several requests they did not put an extra bed in 1 room and 1 kid ended up sleeping on the sofa. Thank you, Anad P.

Amazing, relaxing and tranquil
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left was incredible. It’s everything we hoped for and more. The staff were always helpful and our Butler, Shamiz, went above and beyond to cater for our every need. The room was stylish, spacious and easy to navigate. It was cleaned twice daily and we always had plenty of water and fresh towels. The attention to detail and comfort in the rooms was excellent and made it easy to stay in the room for hours if we so chose to. There were plenty of activities to keep us busy, including some free ones like non-motorised water equipment. The restaurants were amazing and provided a great atmosphere for whichever meal you were eating. The food was impeccable. We didn’t get a bad meal the entire time we were there, and we pretty much had every single item off the menu. My only suggestion would be to start dinner earlier, at 6pm so guests can enjoy the sunset whilst having dinner. Overall we are so happy we had our honeymoon at Taj. It was unforgettable and we had the most amazing experience eating, relaxing and enjoying what Taj had to offer.
