Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans India
Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans India
Occupying 46 acres on the famed Radhanagar Beach at Havelock Island, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andamans is a luxurious gateway to a globally significant biodiversity hotspot in the Bay of Bengal.
Fringed by strip of mangroves overlooking the beach, the luxury resort in Andaman is a homage to the secluded Andaman and Nicobar archipelago stretching for 700 Kms from the southern tip of Burma towards the north of Sumatra; a magical medley of rainforests, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, unspoilt beaches and ancient tribal cultures.
After arriving on the island, guests are welcomed with a traditional song by our young Nicobari colleagues. Designed to showcase and
Nurture the island’s natural resources, the our luxury beach resort in Andaman is dotted with 54 modern luxury Villas on stilts under a canopy of Coconut and Palmyra trees; a contemporary haven built without cutting off a single tree.
Guests can rest over the massive buttresses of an Andaman Padauk tree, ruminate by the water lily pond after a lavish massage or hit the treadmill at the fitness centre built around a majestic Mahua tree that soars up one level to the Olympic-length infinity swimming pool. The modish, 1580 sq. ft. plus residences in sustainable plantation timber are inspired by the dwellings of the Jarawa tribe.
Wi-fi internet at the lobby ensures connectivity, while our silent and intuitive service creates a bespoke atmosphere for privacy and romance interrupted only the sound of kingfishers and emerald doves. Taj’s commitment to conservation and sustainable luxury in the archipelago is at the core of the resort’s impeccable facilities and services. Along with our own biogas facility, water bottling plant, a reservoir for rainwater harvesting and partial solar energy, we’ve partnered with the Pollution Control Board to keep the island plastic free while developing a plastic collection centre on the mainland. From biodegradable straws and paper to newer tools developed in training sessions with our associates and the islanders, we’re working consistently on reducing carbon footprint on this paradise.
The beach resort in Havelock Island offers a bouquet of fun activities for children that engage them in the marine and terrestrial ecology of the island. Between picking mangoes, mud apples and mulberries at our bountiful orchards to jungle treks, beach picnics, supervised scuba diving and shell-craft lessons at our vibrant Recreational Center with plenty of post-meal snoozes on villa decks, there isn’t a dull moment for young and curious minds.
The island is an endless source of delight and discovery. Unravel the secrets of the outdoors and underwater life with exclusive experiences in Sport Fishing, Night Kayaking in the mangroves, Scuba Diving, Snorkelling and Forest Treks.
A tropical tour de force exuding urbane elegance, the 6400 sq ft two storied TATA Suite on stilts has a private elevator, living area, powder room, pantry and three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Architect’s organic design philosophy is showcased in the uncluttered interiors with coconut panels, Palmyra flooring and plantation timbre ceiling. A grand ceiling leads up to the master bedroom on the first level which opens out to a stunning 20 meter swimming pool overlooking the beach. The villa has access to the beach and butler services, along with all modern amenities.
At 147 sq. mt., our Luxury Villas are amongst the finest residences on Havelock Island. Located close to the lobby block and restaurants, they are also a short walk from the beach, thus putting guests in the midst of all the resort activities. Built on stilts with a tribal-inspired, semi-circular thatched roof, each villa is designed for the indulgent island life. The sophisticated, modernist décor takes cues from Nature with sleek wooden, and glass elements. A four-poster bed infuses vintage glamour into the fuss-free living area. A spacious walk-in closet and vanity area at the back leads into a rain shower on one end and a plush bathtub on the other.
The breezy patio with sun bed and deck chairs is perfect for relaxing with family and friends while our impeccable housekeeping, in-room dining and turndown services ensure that your villa stays pristine.
