    This place was like heaven on earth! Loved the services, the staff, and the view. It was great that it was only a 20 minutes away (by speedboat) from the airport.

    Short distance from Airport is good for short stay. For longer stay 4 or more days I will go farther away from airplanes noises. Also you can see other islands, one under construction. Food is good especially if you are vegetarian and like Indian food.

    Fabulous stay at Taj Exotica Maldives

    We went for our wedding and honeymoon and it was fantastic. Jinaan masterfully coordinated the logistics, puking together several dozen people to make our days super special. He went above and beyond to make everything perfect. Safae accompanied my bride to be on an all day hairstyling / professional makeup and manicure excursion and was so attentive to every last detail regarding the preparations. She even lent her own personal curling iron and reapplies her makeup and restyled her hair for more photos the day after the wedding. Our butler Aalif was superhuman in his ability to anticipate our needs and make our stay wonderful. He too went above and beyond. The head chef Bala made sure our cuisine received extra special attention. Our wedding photographer Yamin was a true artist — he shot our wedding and then an additional shoot the following day, capturing the magic that this location embodies with his artistic vision. the Entire staff was consistently accommodating, attentive, efficient
