See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Part of the renowned Taj Hotels brand, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa Maldives is an exclusive, private and romantic island resort. Incredible rooms and a choice of gourmet cuisine, water sports, and recreation make for a complete and exclusive destination. The resort is a Member of The Leading Small Hotels of the World.

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa spreads idyllically along a pristine beach and serene lagoon. The award-winning resort seamlessly extends the magic of the island's blessed natural beauty in its design even as it offers the finest in contemporary luxuries and services. Jiva Grande Spa, an authentic Indian spa, offers a range of signature wellness experiences. A choice of gourmet cuisine, water sports, and recreation make for a complete and exclusive destination.

The resort is only 15 minutes by a private luxury speedboat, available 24 hours, from Malé International Airport.

Most of the resort's luxuriously designed villas are perched over the lagoon with nothing but blue ocean waters and glorious sunsets to block the view. Only a wooden ladder separates you from a refreshing dip in the lagoon. Then you can climb back up and begin a tropical makeover as the sun warms your skin.

All the villas are palm-thatched, built of finest natural wood finishes on the exteriors and the interiors are delightfully appointed in classic Maldivian style. The villas offer sundecks, and some offer private plunge pools, outdoor showers, verandahs with day beds and private spa rooms. Dark woods, rich textures and vibrant accessories make the time you spend indoors just as beautiful as the time you spend swimming with dolphins or gazing into the infinite horizon.

Our spa experiences are offered by trained experts using exclusive natural products in a fresh and harmonious setting. Signature Jiva Grande Spa experiences bring guests the essence of traditional royal wellness and therapeutic experiences.

Jiva Grande Spa also offers Alepa, a signature treatment that evokes the aura of the fabled and privileged lifestyle of Indian royalty. Alepa - literally the act of anointing the body - is a wellness experience drawn from sacred and ceremonial time-honoured Indian bathing rituals. Savour this exquisite experience in a stylish and contemporary spa suite.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   It was amazing experience the only con I found was that there activities were too expensive and therefore not many are able to do it. I believe if they bring their prices down not only will more people do it but eventually it will even profit them . Other than that it's a beautiful lagoon located hotel. It's extremely people and really relaxes you from top to bottom. It's a good place for a one time visit but I wouldn't visit again as it can get isolating. And if you want to be completely isolated and do nothing then that's your place !!

Review:   Taj Exotic Resort is really exotic hotel in Maldives. It is on a small island. We were taken there from airport by a speed boat. On arrival at the resort we were welcomed by music and local dancers. After a welcome drink we were shown our rooms. All the rooms have a private swimming pool. Nobody from outside can see the pool. The food was awesome. The staff and service was great.

Review:   Our experience was absolutely fantastic! The breakfast and dinner at 24 degrees were full of different options and really delicious. The island itself is extremely beautiful. The infinity pool was a great relaxing spot during afternoon. The poolside cafe there has some amazing food! The staff is extremely courteous and very helpful. We took private lessons for snorkeling and also went for a snorkel dive at the nearest lagoon. Well worth it! All non-motorized equipment was free so we used to paddleboat our way into the sunset and it was lovely. Must Visit! Highly recommended!

Review:   The villas are well-appointed, roomy and comfortable. The beaches are gorgeous, as is the water. The entire island is extremely clean, everything is kept in good condition. Service is impeccable. A polite staff member is always on hand to help. The answer to any request is "certainly" or "of course, no problem". Food is surprisingly excellent. While the prices for both food and drinks are exorbitant - be prepared to pay upwards of $35 for a burger - the quality of the food is very good. The menu is varied and contains favorites from around the globe, all of which taste great. Some reviewers noted the proximity to the airport. Yes, planes fly overhead when taking off or, depending on the wind, landing. However, it should be kept in mind that MLE is not exactly a busy airport. There are a handful of larger planes during the day, but it's hardly a problem. On the contrary, the short distance to the airport means not having to waste time and money on a seaplane transfer.
