A choice of luxurious villas at an exclusive Maldives resort, including half board, speedboat transfers, a spa treatment, sunset cruise and more

Five-star Taj Exotica Resort & Spa is a place where you can forget the rest of the world completely. The award-winning property is the picture of private-island bliss, with its thatched-roofed villas, stocking Molton Brown amenities, Frette linens and luxury daybeds and affording gorgeous ocean views. You'll feel like you're far, far away from it all – but really, it's only a quick 15 to 20-minute speedboat ride to and from the airport.

Marvel at the scenery of one of the Maldives' largest lagoons – the beach a crescent of sand against glimmering blue, with a smattering of palm trees and other tropical foliage. Long walkways connect the villas, of which there is only a handful, to the island, where you'll find the pool, several restaurants and other facilities. Spend your days here taking snorkelling through the lagoon, sipping cocktails on the moonlit beach, blissing out in the spa or just convincing yourself that you're not dreaming.

Good To Know

A Green Tax of USD 6 per person, per night is not included and is payable directly to the resort. This helps fund environmental projects in the Maldives.


The Lagoon villas are lavish, with resort-chic interiors. Open-plan architecture keeps each space bright and airy, and you get a view of the waters right from your bed. Rain showers, tubs with their own sweeping views, plush bedding and your very own set of steps to the water complete the picture.

For enhanced luxury and seclusion, plus a freshwater swimming hole, opt for a Deluxe Lagoon villa with Pool, at the far end of the island, or a Deluxe Beach villa with Pool.

Dining experiences here are wildly romantic. At 24 Degrees Restaurant, where a delectable buffet spread is set out every morning, you can go barefoot and dine on the shore, shaded by leafy trees. Or, visit Deep End Restaurant, known for its al-fresco seating, illuminated after dark by candlelight, and its menu of mouthwatering grill and seafood dishes. Keeping things casual are the Equator Bar and the Poolside Bar and Restaurant, for cocktails and light bites.


Jive Grande Spa is tucked into the far end of the resort, a private oasis that has a lush garden, spa pavilions and elegant furnishings and is designed to create a cocoon of harmony. Treatments are rooted in India's ancient wellness philosophies, helping you find balance physically and mentally.


The resort is just a 15 to 20-minute speedboat ride from the airport, but once you're here, you'll feel worlds away from it all. Snorkel, swim, sunbathe and take a nap in a hammock, along one of the Maldives' largest lagoons. Ask the hotel to set you up on a scuba dive or a wildlife walk around the island, if you'd like to try something new.
