                  Taj Exotica in Maldives is a very - very - good Resort. The attention to detail in the design of the hotel and the service are world class - which made our stay seem much longer than it actually was. The resort has a very intimate feel to it, and caters extremely well to honeymooning couples from Europe, us, and Asia - as well as well heeled families.

                  The resort sets the bar very high for itself - and achieves it comfortably. The challenge is to maintain this high standard.

                  Expert staff. Clean and luxury bungalo villa. Nice breakfast with wonderful views.

                  Unclean ocean near the bungalo " lots of rocks" might cause foot bleeding.

                  The hotel was amazing, also the staff were friendly and attentive. We loved the food there. The hotel provides so much privacy, even at the beach you always feel like you're the only couple there.

                  The only problem we faced was being stuck on the island and not being able to go to other reefs in other islands. I suggest the hotel to make more snorking trips in other reefs because that's what we came to Maldives for. We didnt know that we couldn't take a taxi jetty from the island and just go anywhere we wanted. Overall it was a nice experience, only disspointed about not being able to see more of maldives islands and reefs.

                  My wife and I enjoyed every minute of staying at the beach villa with private infinity pool at the beach. Even though it was a bit pricy, we wanted to get something exclusive and we got it for sure and never regretted the money we payed. Superb!

                  If you are counting every dollar/euro/etc and enjoy paying less rather than getting hi end vacation - do not go there. This could be wrong place for you. Although I know that people living on islands are kind of slow, "no rush, no worries", service at restaurants was a bit too slow on my taste. We never hurried, but Hey! Sometimes people get hungry.

                  Staff extremely friendly and helpful, great facilities, perfect setting for beach activities and dining. The reality looks better than the hotel pictures can show.

                  Internet could be complimentary considering the room rates; boat transport to the airport can be hazardous, as skippers occasionally race with other boats - we almost crashed into another speedboat when approaching the airport. Look for other transfer options.

                  The resort was amazingly beautiful, and all the staff were great. My wife and I were on our honeymoon, and it was the perfect place! We really got the feeling that people were genuinely happy for us and wanted to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We also had a great time on the sunset fishing, and local island excursions. We hope to come back soon, and bring some friends and family!
