This little island of paradise is just a 20 mins speedboat ride from Male Airport. Everything about this resort right from the start to the end is upto the mark as you cant go wrong with the Taj hospitality.

Escape to the pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters at Taj Exotica Maldives- this is what the Taj Exotica's website told us.

We were checked into the cosy comfort of a Deluxe Lagoon villa which had a divine view and a direct drop into the water. The blues in this country are amazing.

We stayed at the Taj Exotica for 3 nights. It was the most beautiful resort, felt like we were truly in paradise. The lagoon was so big and most beautiful, the facilities at the resort were great. Would definitely recommend anyone coming to the Maldives to stay at this resort. It is truly magical.
