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

Great stay at Taj Exotica Maldives
An excellent stay at an extremely comfortable and well-maintained property. We stayed in an over water villa with a little deck. We could swim out from the room to a hammock pitched in the middle of the lagoon, which was good fun. I was very impressed with the high standards of housekeeping, the turn down service at night, the hotel's committment to the environment (use of glass bottles and metal straws) and the always smiling, helpful staff. Food was very good but highly priced. Water sports were prohibitively expensive. USD 215 (incl taxes) for a half-hour water sport is just too high a price. One piece of feedback for the hotel - the staff at the Dive centre need to be better trained. Some of them were rude and too blunt in their manner of speech. We lost a snorkelling flipper that the hotel had given us. Of course we knew we would have to pay for it. But I didn't expect that a guy from the Dive centre (Naveen) would wave at me from the jetty while I was paddle boating with my son and yell out " I'm going to have to bill you for the missing flipper." That's just not ok. There's a time and a place to discuss such things.

Solo Getaway
The Taj resort is close to the Male airport just a 20 minute boat trip away. One of the reasons I picked the resort. I was blown away by the amenities, friendliness of the staff, how the rooms were kept clean, the butler was amazing and thoughtful with the chocolates, and the Deep-End-Restaurant located on the resort was amazing! The food cooked the night I went was by Chef Atul and I was blown away not just by the presentation but by how the food was prepared to perfection! Only negatives is when you check out they sound the alarm on the room phone which I thought was inappropriate and then keep knocking on your door even after you say just a few more minutes. Overall resort was a good escape but could've been better if the checkout process was done professionally.
