Condé Nast Traveler has recognized Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Maldives as one of the top resorts in the World.
"Although the Maldives isn't exactly hurting for luxury properties, Taj's Exotica Resort and Spa still manages to set itself apart from the pack. Occupying its own private motu, it's ideal for those craving peace and quiet, where villages with palm-thatched roofs and wood finishes on the exteriors and floors all come with panoramic Indian Ocean views" The review by Condé Nast Traveler read.
Set on a landscaped private island, this high-end beach resort is a 15-minute speedboat ride from the capital, Malé, home to Velana International Airport.
Luxurious villas have private decks, beach access and ocean views. All feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and DVD players, as well as iPod docks, minibars, and tea and coffeemakers. Upgraded villas add private pools, decks and tropical outdoor showers.
There's a Japanese restaurant with an open kitchen, as well as an overwater restaurant, a chic cocktail bar and a poolside bar. Other amenities include an infinity pool, and a spa with hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas and treatments.
