Taj Exotica Resort & Spa

This ‘Leading Hotel of the World’ takes full advantage of its setting in one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives. Most of it is stilted over the water and guests are able to enjoy panoramic seascapes whether relaxing upon their terraces, surrendering to soothing treatments in the spa or enjoying Progressive World Cuisine in the over-water restaurant. It consists of just 64 palm-thatched villas, each one striking the perfect balance between rustic appeal and fine living.

Natural fabrics and polished timbers establish their stylish ‘at one with nature’ ambience and whilst seven of them hug the edge of the beach and boast private plunge pools, most of them are stilted above the lagoon and offer direct access into the water from their furnished sun decks. Deluxe Lagoon Villas come with the added little luxury of their own private plunge pools. These high standards are reflected throughout every aspect of the resort.

The two à la carte restaurants serve anything from seafood and local delicacies to Pan Asian and Progressive World Cuisine, the romantic ambience enhanced by the lagoon views. Or why not choose your own ‘special’ spot and dine à deux beneath the stars, the Equator Bar there for when you’re back in the mood for socialising over a glass of wine from the new world.

The complimentary non-motorised water sports, infinity-edge pool and PADI dive-centre combine with the sunset cruises and sea plane trips to ensure enough amusement for everyone, but when you simply want to do nothing at all the Jiva Grande Spa awaits. And just in case the over-water couples suites and Royal Indian Mud and Bathing Pavilion aren’t quite enough for you, the resident Ayurveda physician is there to help you rediscover your inner self!
