HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

An absolutely magical start to the day! The property has all what one would expect of a 5 star - meet and greet at the...

Maldives is a beautiful country, but excellent was the way to describe how Taj made it special. Caring and smiling people, excellent food, great locations and out of the world water villas - which gave very homely feeling and luxury at the same time. Holiday to remember lifetime. Wold sure visit atleast one more time

An over water bungalow for 8 nights to celebrate a special anniversary (and birthday) was heavenly. From arrival to departure the organisation, professionalism and efficiency impressed us. Weather was perfect, food was delicious in all restaurants, service was attentive and courteous and staff were incredibly welcoming. We were met with smiles wherever we went. Snorkelling within the lagoon gave us...

After you descend into Male airport, a luxury speedboat spirits you and your luggage away to Hembadhu Island, where you arrive at Vivanta by Taj - Coral Reef. The resort is a diver's dream destination with numerous diving sites and it's very own 1000 year old coral-reef and shipwreck to explore.
