My stay at the TAJ Exotica Maldives

From the moment you arrive at the airport everything is 5 stars. Excellent location, beautiful clear white beaches. Cristal clear water. Amazing snorkeling in the reef and lots of amazing fish that can be seen akk the time. The butlers go the extra mile and are truly fantastic. The water sport options, fishing, restaurant, and activities can keep even the most demanding client happy. 7 days in paradise and cannot wait to go back. If you are planing a trip to the Maldives this is the place to stay!
