Taj Exotica Maldives named amongst top resorts at Condé Nast Traveler 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards
Condé Nast Traveler has recognised Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Maldives as one of the top resorts in Indian Ocean.
At the 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards, Taj Exotica was ranked at the second with a score of 99.55.
Reviewing the resort for the awards, Condé Nast Traveler said Taj Exotica still manages to set itself apart from the many luxury properties across the Maldives. Occupying its own private motu, the resort is 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, it added.
“If you’re not content to stay in bed all day, though, there are plenty of lounge-ready hammocks hanging on the beach, and activities like the sunset dolphin-watching cruise to keep you feeling like you’re actually doing something. Deep End Restaurant offers top-notch dishes, focusing mostly on the tastes of Europe,” the review read.
A 15-minute speedboat ride from the Maldives main airport brings you to the idyllic resort of Taj Exotica, surrounded by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
Set delicately over the lagoon, this postcard-perfect getaway offers 64 sea-view villas and suites that are luxurious and lavish, yet maintain a fine balance with nature. Featuring private sundecks and balconies, the large villas are decorated with fine wood furnishings and warm colours. The resort’s world-famous, award-winning presidential suite is, arguably, one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Savour the best from the culinary world with carefully selected ingredients sourced both locally and globally to please your palate. Enjoy the freshest of seafood at Deep End or choose from the extensive carefully crafted menu at 24 Degrees, where you experience a performance of art assembled on your plate at the theatrical Teppanyaki kitchen. Sip leisurely on your cocktails at the Equator Bar as you take in the awe-inspiring views of fiery Indian Ocean sunsets.
A wide range of water sports, including diving, fishing and windsurfing are available at Taj Exotica. Alternatively, relax with soothing spa treatments at Jiva Grande Spa.
The Readers’ Choice Awards epitomises authenticity, personalisation and the unexpected in the travel industry. This year, nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted a recording-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences across the globe.
