The 5 star Taj Maldives Exotica Resort and Spa is a dream destination, set in lush landscaped grounds on the private island of Emboodhu Finolhu, which is located just a 15-minute boat ride away from the capital Malé. The Maldives is renowned for its tranquillity and a sense of wilderness abounds as soon as you arrive at the picturesque resort.
The luxurious location makes an ideal place for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon or simply for the holiday of a lifetime. This is a truly stunning escape, surrounded by the crystal clear waters of one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives. The horseshoe shaped resort comprises 64 private villas which overlook the azure waters, each of which come with their own plunge pool and a relaxing and contemporary neutral colour scheme. The white sand beaches are the perfect place to relax with a good book and soak up the sun, before enjoying a bite to eat in one of the many dining options available.
The 24 Degrees serves food all day with menus which draw their influences from a Pan Asian and European style of dining. Teppanyaki is available with a selection of seafood, meats and vegetable dishes which cater to all tastes.
The Deep End is the more upscale and fine dining choice at the resort, where the team of talented chefs create beautifully plated modern European food which fuses the best of Mediterranean flavours. Ingredients are carefully sourced with a preference for local provenance and sustainable produce.
The resort’s Jiva Grande Spa is an authentic Indian style spa which offers an expansive range of beauty and wellness treatments designed to rebalance mind, body and soul.
Aromatherapy massages, yoga, meditation and traditional bathing rituals are sure to leave you feeling completely rejuvenated.
For those who prefer slightly more active pursuits, the resort has an extensive range of water sports on offer such as water skiing, banana boat rides, windsurfing, snorkelling and diving. It is even possible to get up close and personal with some of the sea life during the course of your stay, with shark and stingray feeding available as an excursion.
Another must during your stay is to visit the National Museum located in Sultan Park Malé which showcases the fascinating history, culture and society of the island with displays of historical artefacts. Check the opening times before your visit to avoid disappointment however, as they vary dependent upon the season!
