Taj Exotica Resort & Spa
South Male Atoll, Maldives
Time stands still at the Taj Exotica Resort and Spa. Spread across the Emboodhu Finolhu island in one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives and surrounded by the azure blue Indian Ocean, you cannot help but feel a sense of calm and tranquillity.
Each of the resort’s 64 villas and suites are an opulent private haven, and with its famed Jiva Spa offering treatments rooted in ancient Indian tradition, it makes a serene place for rest and relaxation. While you unwind, you will also be pampered by a dedicated team of butlers, on hand to help you experience the best of the Maldives.
An array of finely curated dining and drinking experiences are on offer at the Taj Exotica, from Pan-Asian cuisine at the 24 Degrees Restaurant to cocktails and cigars at Equator Bar. Do not leave without making the most of the in-house Ayurveda physician and yoga master – arrange a private consultation for customised culinary and treatment programme.
Your break on Emboodhu Finolhu can be as laid-back or active as you wish. For quieter moments, choose to lounge in your suite’s hammock by the infinity pool or on the private beach. When you are ready to explore, head on a wildlife-spotting walk to see the island’s rich flora and fauna, or try scuba diving, snorkelling and parasailing.
Your holiday will start in style, as a 15-minute speedboat ride will take you from Male airport to the Taj Exotica. The transfer can be arranged through the hotel.
