Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans

Framed by coconut palms and set on what is considered one of Asia’s most beautiful beaches, a stay at Taj Exotica Resort & Spa is a truly blissful escape.

You could start your day with yoga overlooking the Indian Ocean, followed by a few laps in the Olympic-sized infinity pool. You could then go snorkelling with turtles and colourful fish, or paddle a kayak through lush mangroves. Or perhaps you’d prefer to spend the day island-hopping on a private catamaran, discovering hidden beaches lapped by warm, turquoise waters. Whatever your inclination, this newly opened Taj Exotica property is a stunning base from which to discover the magic of the Andamans. 

In addition to excellent activity facilities, the resort offers innovative, regional dining at two restaurants, plus a spa where you can indulge in Indian beauty rituals and holistic spa experiences. Each of the 75 villas, inspired by the native Jarawa huts, feature minimalist décor and modern amenities. For a little extra luxury, opt for the Deluxe Villa which enjoys plenty of living space, a large decking, private pool and superb views over the rainforest canopy.
