Overview

Turn off the phone and turn up the fun with a trip to paradise! Spend 6 or 8 days on an overwater villa in the Maldives and watch the daily stress wash away. In South Male Atoll, Emboodhu Finolhu island is a romantic destination surrounded by beach and island views.

The Resort
The 5-star Taj Exotica Maldives is spread across the Emboodhu Finolhu island, renowned for its rich flora and fauna. This tropical destination, also known as Three Coconut Isle, is only a 15-20 minute trip from Male Airport by speedboat. Set delicately over the lagoon, the postcard-perfect getaway offers suites and villas that are luxurious while maintaining a fine balance with nature. 

Lounge by the infinity pool, laze in a hammock over blue waters, go on a wildlife-spotting walk and lay below the stars at night. Perched over the water, the new Mediterraneo Restaurant by Jeffrey Vella radiates romance with partially al-fresco seating and candle-lit tables, offering an enticing medley of dishes. At 24 Degrees Restaurant, indulge in delicacies ranging from Pan-Asian cuisine, including Teppanyaki cuisine, to international favourites. Sip leisurely on your cocktails at the Equator Bar as you take in the awe-inspiring views of Indian Ocean sunsets. Or jump out of the infinity pool and enjoy a refreshing beverage, pizzas and snacks at the Poolside Bar & Restaurant. Be pampered by the resort’s world-renowned butlers, who can arrange a range of water sports activities for you. At J Wellness Spa, highly-trained therapists offer guests a relaxing, rejuvenating and healing spa experience. 

Your TripADeal Inclusions
After your international flight, be greeted by the Taj’s crew at the airport, and travel to the island resort via speedboat. Arrive in style and be greeted with a welcome drink before settling down in your Lagoon Villa Ocean View. Relax in the lounges by the sun decks enjoying the ocean vistas across the resort.

Enjoy delicious a-la-carte breakfast, lunch & dinner at 24 Degrees Restaurant or Poolside Bar each day, while complimentary drinks are served from 11:00 to 23:00 from Poolside Bar, Equator Bar & 24 Degrees Restaurant.

A highlight of your stay will be a sunset cruise for 2, where you’ll sail around the lagoon in a traditional Maldivian Dhoni or a speedboat, admiring the magnificent sunset on Hembadhu Island and seeking rare grey dolphins. Non-motorised water sports are all included, plus the use of snorkelling gear to enjoy every moment of your stay. Enjoy 25% off spa treatments at J Wellness Spa plus access to the fitness centre.

Upgrade Options
Want more? Book a Deluxe Lagoon Villa with Pool and enjoy 94 square metres of pure bliss. Built on stilts in the lagoon, these villas provide infinity views of the horizon.

About the Property

HOTEL: Taj Exotica Resort & Spa

Escape the frenetic pace and chaos of everyday life, into luxury’s very own lap at Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives. Away from the sparkling lights of Male, this 5-star hotel in Maldives is spread across the Emboodhu Finolhu island in the middle of one of the largest lagoons in Maldives. Renowned for its rich flora and fauna, this tropical isle, also known as the Three Coconut Isle, is situated amidst the coral reefs.

Set delicately over the lagoon, this postcard-perfect getaway offers 64 sea-view suites and villas in Maldives that are luxurious and lavish; yet maintain a fine balance with nature. At Taj Exotica Maldives, you are on Taj Time, where doing nothing is an art form. Time stands still—and yet there is never a dull moment. Within this oasis of calm set in paradise, lounge by the infinity pool or at the resort’s private beach, laze in a hammock over the blue waters and just lay below the stars at night. Go on a wildlife-spotting walk. Pure bliss. Savour the best from the culinary world with carefully-selected ingredients sourced both locally and globally to please your palate. Perched over the water, Deep End radiates romance with partially al-fresco seating and candle-lit tables, offering an enticing medley of dishes from the countries touched by Mediterranean Sea or choose from the extensive carefully crafted menu at 24 Degrees. Sip leisurely on cocktails at the Equator Bar as you take in the awe-inspiring views of fiery Indian Ocean sunsets. Needless to say, each of the restaurants offers a spectacular and unbelievably romantic ocean experience. Enjoy sumptuous in-room and private dining experiences. And be pampered by the resort's world-renowned butlers, who would be happy to arrange a whole range of water sports, including snorkelling. Create a lifetime of memories every moment in this haven of tranquillity.

Yellow Fever:
A valid international certificate of vaccination against Yellow Fever is required in many countries. You may need to present this on arrival at the airport or border crossing. Some countries will refuse entry if you are unable to present your certificate. It's also quite common for your home country to request a Yellow Fever certificate on your arrival back home.

Gratuities / Tipping:
Gratuities (tips) are not included in the package price for other services offered.

If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all of your receipts. 
Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.
Please refer to our Terms and Conditions in regards to shopping for further information.

Important: 
• Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.
• Visa rules may have changed since Covid-19. 
Some countries and airlines may require you to obtain an additional visa before arrival. Please check with the nearest embassy, consulate or immigration department of the destination you're entering.
Please note: 
• Passengers who are not Australian citizens must also check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required.
• It is also important to note that some areas of employment, such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations, may have additional restrictions in applying for visas. This may, in turn, affect the type of application required.
 
Travel insurance

Embarking on your next trip is exciting, and while you hope the unexpected does not happen, it is best to be prepared. We strongly recommend you take out travel insurance when making your booking. Whether it’s a potential medical emergency, a flight cancellation, a delayed suitcase, or an unforeseen event, it's important to ensure you're adequately protected.
