Visited with my wife and 6 month old son. So let me break it down for you: 1) Food - Why would I start with food while reviewing one of the best resorts in Maldives? Taj surprised us the most with the quality of food during all our meals, to the extent that we called out the chef to applaud...

My wife and I have just returned home from another great holiday at the Taj. Over the last 12 years we have regularly stayed at some of the many 5 star luxury Islands in the Maldives. Sometimes combing two or three Islands, but now we only stay here for our full 14 days. This was our 9th visit and before...

Location, accommodation, service, food - nothing else anywhere can even come close! It is a very expensive place but every penny was worth it.

Fab hotel but just so expensive. We spent over £2000 on just food alone in a week for two people and that's with breakfast included. You can't leave unless you pay a fortune just to go to the mainland by boat. A Chinese meal will set you back £100 plus each so I suggest you book all included to ease...
