Taj Exotica Resort and Spa

A palm-thatched villa standing above the crystal waters of a tropical lagoon. A movie set? No – the Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Hotel, in the Maldives.

Welcome to an island sanctuary where luxury and landscape merge to create a living experience that is one with nature. Taj Exotica Resort & Spa is located in one of the largest lagoons in The Maldives and the resort is only 15 minutes by a private luxury speedboat, available 24 hours from Male International Airport.

Recently voted as the Best Resort in Asia and Second in the World by Conde Nast Traveller USA readers in 2012, it enjoys a truly breath-taking setting beside a picture-perfect lagoon. The Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Hotel in the Maldives is the sort of place Hollywood comes to make movies.

Most of the visitors to this unrivalled Maldives hotel, however, come to relax. There are just over sixty villas clustered around the lagoon. Six of them stand on the edge of the white sand beach and feature plunge pools and al fresco showers.

The others actually stand in the Indian Ocean, on stilts. Steps lead down to its warm waters, and their private sundecks naturally provide horizon-wide views of the sea.

The dream doesn’t end there. The Taj Exotica Resort features a world class spa with treatment rooms overlooking the lagoon, a gym and a pavilion devoted to yoga and tai chi.

Wind surfing, parasailing, snorkelling, PADI diving, catamaran sailing and evening champagne cruises make the most of the sea, whilst this astonishing Maldives hotel even offers island-hopping by seaplane!

Then stingrays join you for dinner – swimming through floodlight waters beneath the circular, Deep End restaurant.

A scene from a movie? No, from the Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Hotel in the Maldives.
