Honeymoon on the Maldives

  • July 2013
The entire hotel, and the island is very well maintained. It is for all times of the day and night in the hotel everything was clean and well maintained! Even each day the sand on the inselweg toward lobby and main restaurant 24 degress with the rake edits no leaves or leaves on the way to see, just perfect. The rooms (we had a water villa with pool) are perfectly clean and the daily maintenance leaves nothing to be desired, the villa was very nice and maintained likewise not worn. Which worked also very well was the air conditioning, this ... was so well positioned, that you also in the night no train got. To the guests it has many indians, perhaps because the taj hotel chain from India dates, but if you travel a lot know, that as well as the japanese/korean a very quiet society is, the peace in the vacation is, or treat. read hotel review

    The location of the hotel is very close to male and the international airport, we did not have before by the reviews here at Holiday check from the noise and could however the opinions of various non-parts, as it really is not a lot of machines of the day, this is really not disturbing. But you from the airport is not long journey to the hotel and the Maldives and this island very much earlier than others enjoy! :-)

    There is no entertainment, what we saw, since we through the own pool always on the water villa were and not at the main pool. Even if we came across on the beach, everything was always very quiet, as it is on an island to relax mind. The water sports are large, jet ski, sailing, banana boats and so on. Can one everything against fee in the water sports centre. The same was true for diving and snorkelling. On a private reef with the water villas you can of course without extra cost anytime on own fist go snorkeling. The beach is as everything on the island was very clean, every morning with a rake edits.

    Well what can you to the service or the friendliness of the staff say: Perfect, these anticipated all the wishes of the eyes and do if you had something everything immediately within the next 30 sel. If this is possible. We had a butler sudi, came from India, this man is the absolute insanity defendendo, every wish was immediately fulfilled and also as a jellyfish in the snorkelling touched upon, he was immediately about his interoffice communication from the diving station informed and brought us to hot water in the room with a little vinegar, that it not be so heavily burns... So absolutely top service, also of all other employees in this hotel.

  • Room
    6.0

    Since we the water villa had, we can only about the reports, the room was equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay, equipped. We also had a coffee machine in the room, these were without extra benutzut could be. The room is equipped with free safe, water up to 4 liter on the day, air conditioning, lcd tv, iPod Docking Station, bathtub, shower, separate toilet, pool with terrace equipped with everything what you want from a hotel in this category expect can. Also here we can only good things to say. So we can recommend the hotel to everyone, a quiet and relaxing holiday and also a super service with beautiful food want to connect to. The Maldives and also the individual islands are fantastically beautiful, we need not to mention, of course... :-)

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    We had always only in the 24 degrees for breakfast and dinner, since we had booked half board. The food was absolute best, initially we thought still, a shame that there is no buffet is, but this is soon forgotten defendendo, since the dishes were all very delicious and also always freshly prepared to order and also to our wishes. With the half-board is always a starter, hauptspreise and dessert for everyone and this was absolutely sufficient, so with a hungry stomach we are never in our room ☺ The menu really everybody could find something, fish, beef, noodles, soup, indian, thai... And and and, therefore something for everyone. The drinks prices except for wine are all ok for the, that you're on an island, however the other restaurants on the island as the pool bar (food was delicious) long already correctly, but but one is evenly in a 6 star hotel, a brief example 2 non-alcoholic cocktails, 1 pizza and 1 times burger with fries (94,00 US Dollar) ☺ But it was delicious...

Great hotel but extreme noise because of the proximity to male airport. The complex is tidy, the food excellent, the service perfect. In comparison to other similar portfolios luxury seems the price level for food, drink, diving, here but especially high to be. read hotel review

    The rooms are pretty and spacious, we had a lagoon villa, on stilts in the lagoon is built and direct access to the sea offers. Since it concerns villa is, is the right to privacy on the veranda limited, since one anyhow the conversations of the neighbors (and even to be heard).

    Sport was limited with us to the diving. This is in the taj exotica very expensive, particularly in comparison to other departments of a similar category, where you partly 1/2 to 2/3 of prices in the taj is charged. A dive cost in november 2012 $ 115 plus 6% tax. The taucheq uipment was new, the instructor competent and motivated. Nitrox diving is possible.

    Beautiful lagoon, great complex. The hotel is unfortunately in the approach path of the international airport of male, that means one must with significant aircraft noise partially to after midnight be prepared. The aeroplanes are in the villas with closed doors clearly audible, we even in the hotel bar (equator bar) with the music clearly heard. If you are a private picture to make would like, is' taj exotica Maldives noise' with youtxbe a.

    The food in all the restaurants was fabulous (and is accordingly expensive, that means one can have good and with $400 up to $ 500 for two people including drinks be expected). Breakfast is really exceptionally good, no buffet, but a la carte.
