The allure of a holiday in the Maldives is inviting in itself, but the unmatched luxuries of Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, and Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa have a way to heighten it further. Here’s why a trip to these tropical havens is ideal for a rebound vacation. By Bayar Jain
The Maldives is a land known for its magical white-sand beaches and clear blue waters. It comes as no surprise, then, that the two properties of Taj—Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, and Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa—celebrate this ethos in all its glory. Garlanded by a string of coral islands, the two promise a paradisiacal stay accentuated by comfort and safety.
Taj Exotica Resort & Spa
Located at an easy distance of 15 minutes via speed boat from Velana International Airport, the fantasy-like Taj Exotica Resort & Spa is luxury personified. The postcard-perfect getaway stands proud across the Emboodhu Finolhu island amid lagoons aplenty. When here, choose from 64 sea-facing villas and suites, each more lavish than the other. Whether it is soaking the tropical autumn sun on a private sundeck, or washing away worries in an outdoor shower — tranquillity is bound to follow. Equipped with panoramic ocean views and blessed with amenities galore, comfort accompanies at this luxurious property.
For dining, too, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa doesn’t skimp out. Home to gourmet creations in restaurants serving Pan Asian, European, or meaty grills, each space is sure to enthral. While the Equator Lounge offers delicious cocktails and cigars on a patio ringing with soothing music, the Pool Bar and Restaurant is for the laid-back few looking to unwind. For those hoping to indulge in a range of cuisines (seafood, meats, and vegetables), 24 Degrees is your calling. Alternatively, The Deep End offers alfresco dining — think romantic candlelit setting with sounds of crashing waves in the backdrop.
A secluded stretch of beach, a treetop setting, sandbank surfaces, a floating ocean pavilion — this is where fairy tales come true. Additionally, a dedicated butler service, a pampering spa session at Jiva Spa, a seaplane tour, a sunset cruise, and a lot more amp up the luxe quotient. And if nothing catches your fancy, simply sit back, relax in the villa, and get lost in the gentle hums of the azure seas.

Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa
An idyllic paradise just an hour away from Velana International Airport, the 62 thatch-roofed villas and suites at Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa dot the scenic Hembadhu island in a peaceful demeanour. When here, breathtaking turquoise vistas, orange-hued sunsets, and tropical relaxation awaits. Each accommodation type comes paired with landscaped gardens and private decks. While the superior beach villas cast a spell with outdoor showers, the lavish nirvana presidential suite is spread over two floors shadowed by stunning oceanic views.
On the dining front, Taj Coral Reef Resort & Spa has three restaurants and a bar featuring South American, Maldivian, Indian, and Western cuisines. The white-painted Bokkura—named after a type of Maldivian boat—offers Maldivian, Indian, Pan-Asian, Continental, and Oriental delicacies; while the open-air Reef bar celebrates beverages galore. Other options include Open-The Grill, Pizzeria, and Pool Side — each of which is sure to take you on a gastronomical journey.
To heighten the laid-back vibe, get whisked by sandbank dining amid gentle sea echoes; or opt for a starlit sojourn for the ultimate romantic date.

Irrespective, a memorable experience backed by hygiene is guaranteed.
