This was our first family trip post Covid -19 and I must say it was a wonderful experience. The staff at Taj was extremely warm and welcoming and we were taken care of at every stage of our vacation. Taj really made Maldives one of the most memorable family trips for us. We were assigned a butler named Nevelle. I have never met a more humble, respectful, supportive hotel staff in my life. He made sure that all our requests were met with and every time we called onto him, he was there for us. Instead of taking us to the reception for check-in in, Navelle took us straight to the room and completed the check-in inside the room. It was comfortable, smooth and hassle free. Since our flight had was 3 hours delayed, we were also served lunch in our room itself. The Scuba diving experience was one of the best for us. We went Scuba diving with a wonderful Instructor Haythum. Let me tell you he was one of the highlights of the trip. This was our first ever dive and I was really scared. Haythum made an extra effort to make me comfortable with water and scuba diving. He showed us the best of whatever we wanted to see. He also took some memorable pictures and videos of us for which we will be ever grateful. Furthermore, he took an active interest in our questions and also shared some experiences of his personal dives in the red sea and Australia with us. Such attention to detail is something you never see at other dive centres. Thank you Haythum for making me love Scuba Diving. I now really want to be a PADI certified diver myself! We also had the opportunity to get a photoshoot done around the resort. Shamil (our photographer) was all so kind to help us get the best clicks of our lives. He captured one of my best photographs of all times and of course gave wonderful memories to take back home. Thankyou Shamil! Over all it was a beautiful luxury trip which was made so comfortable for us by team Taj. Thankyou once again for taking care of us.More
Duration: 4N 5D, Room Type: Water villa with pool An amazing trip and we (My wife and myself) couldn't have asked for more. Right from the food, service, location to the activities that we did, it was all a great experience. The clarity of the water is so good which makes the snorkelling experience worth it. Thanks to the snorkelling gear provided by Taj, we could snorkel anywhere around the resort. We also loved the 30 min complimentary photoshoot wherein we could get our photos clicked anywhere on the resort and we could buy the pictures that we liked. Our photographer, Shamil, was a lovely guy and was patient with all our requests for different clicks. Our butler, Shaufa, was also a great help to us who helped us with whatever we required and also suggested us things that we should be keeping in mind. She also provided us with required ointments when we got some sunburns. All in all a wonderful experience and thanks to Taj for the lovely experience.More
Me & my wife went to Taj Exotica maldives for a 4N5D trip to celebrate our anniversary. It was a great experience and we loved every bit of our stay there! We stayed in the overwater villas with private pool. The food was amazing and property itself is really beautiful with great snorkeling spots. We could snorkel right outside our water bungalow! They also provided a complimentary half hour photo shoot wherein we could get our pictures clicked around the island and get them printed if we want.. The photographer Shamil was a great guy and we had a great experience with him! Would definitely recommend this place!More
Me and my wife were looking forward to this trip for a few years now and after being to 57 countries and countless resorts globally, Taj and the team there have taken the top spot by a big mile. From the booking with their reservation executive, Wardhaa, everything was very articulately explained and made easy for us to follow. There was no pressure of constant phone calls or emails. Upon arrival in Male we were greeted at the airport by a very friendly employee of Taj who took us to the boat transfer procedure with absolute ease. Once we arrived at the resort, we were escorted directly to our room by a lady named Yuki (apologies if I get the name wrong). Taj was so good that they had our room ready even before check in time. Instead of taking us to the reception for check-in in, they took us straight to the room (we booked a water villa) and completed the check-in inside the room! I have never had that facility anywhere. It was comfortable, smooth and hassle free. We were assigned a butler named Shamiz. Let me tell you, he was one of the highlights of our trip. I have never met a more humble, respectful, supportive hotel staff in my life. He made sure that all our requests were met with and every time we called onto him, he was there for us. We tried our best to not make him uncomfortable and hope he didn't mind. From there we paced ourselves over 9 days trying one activity everyday and enjoying the resort in the spare time. We just did not get bored. The resort has kayaking and paddle boating free for an hour every day. It was clean, in good condition and the water was spotless. The staff was also very friendly. Food - we are from Pakistan and do not drink alcohol. Therefore food to our taste is a priority for us. We were in the half board option and boy was the food good. Every single item we tried was just perfect. Nothing to complain. The service in the restaurant was top notch and every person who attended to us at the tables was very friendly, helpful and not once did they make us feel uncomfortable. Special shout out to Ashraf, Bala, Ali and the whole team at the Equator bar where we spent every sunset. Water sports - We did the dolphin cruise with the team and every single person that took us for the trip was extremely friendly. They engaged in conversation with us and not once did it feel intrusive. They let us spend our own private time on the cruise and even took pictures of us. I forgot their names but a big thank you is in order for all the members of that cruise. Diving - We went diving twice with the most wonderful instructor named Sawadh. This was my 5th dive location and I have never met an instructor who was this easy to deal with. Sawadh made an extra effort to show us the best of whatever we aimed to see (Stingrays, Lionfish, Turtles etc). He also took some memorable pictures and videos of us for which we will be ever grateful. Furthermore, he took an active interest in our questions and also shared some experiences of his personal dives with us. Such attention to detail is something you never see at other dive centres. Thank you Sawadh. I don't think I can go diving with anyone else now other than you. Spa - we spent two days at the spa and both the lady attendants were outstanding. I have never had spa service like that. They deserve a medal for their patience and service. The beach - I have been to many beaches globally but none as spotless as the beach at Taj Exotica. Special credit needs to be given to the Bangladeshi gentleman who cleans and services the beach everyday. He was exemplary. Staff - A big thank you to Sachin and the head nurse for accommodating our many small medical issues we had (nothing COVID related). Thank you to Nifsaan, Mohamed, Muadh, Arif, Shamiz and the lovely Sikh Gentleman Covid Marshal who always greeted us with a smile and when we needed medical help, he was the first to lend a hand. Mr Hassan Latheef, the office manager, whom we met at the last night of our stay due to an unfortunate medical incident with my wife. When he saw the trouble my wife was in, he went out of his way to get us on the house dinner to our room and even gave us the best room in the hotel as a late check out complimentary extension. I will never forget this effort from Mr Latheef and that one gesture has assured us that this we will book the Ocean Suite with Taj on our next trip insha Allah. Mr Latheef then met us again upon our exit at the hotel and gave us the most beautiful memento of a photo album. He dropped us all the way to the speedboat with Shamiz and the team and they saw us until we went deep into the waters. Overall, it was a fairytale trip made possible by the team at Taj and their beautiful resort. The way they take care of the ocean, marine life and their guests, it needs to be applauded.More
Right from the time we worked on our reservations to the time we left the property everything was Outstanding! And I say this as someone who travels 200 days a year. First the reservations - we called the hotel directly (as their global reservations showed unavailability for our needed dates). The hotel reservation staff Ms. Wardhaa Ahmad was fantastic. Patient, hard working and always responsive, she worked hard to find us our with pool villas for the dates (peak) we were looking for. Further, a week later, she also found another room for our nephews who decided to join us last minute. This level of co-operation during peak season is unheard of. Then at the hotel all the staff - from housekeeping to servers were extremely courteous, polite and warm at all times. Special call out for their head of rooms, Mr. Haasan who was extremely accomodating and Ms. Rascha at the front desk for working on each of our requests (including finding us a guitar :). The stay was so good that we extended for a few more days and they managed to find rooms for us! This is our second visit to Maldives in the past one year but clearly the BEST! Well done, team Taj!
