I had a great trip. The hotel was beautiful and the staff were v helpful as well. I felt like the transfer boat could have been better, but it was ok. I couldn't help comparing this hotel to the last time I had visited maldives, and i have to say, that was a much better hotel/experience. Everything here was average,...

My husband and I traveled here for our honeymoon. The staff and service are hands down the best we have encountered.

When it comes to anything with the TAJ,...expectations are "too" high. To all readers, this review is based on that "expectation" which not all Hotels can manage to create or give like what the Taj Group does! WEATHER...Visited the resort from the 19th to 24th Sept'14.

Visit to this property was in Dec 2007 even before it got branded as 'Vivanta'. But one can never forget the serenity and tranquility at his spectacular property. Swimming in the crystal clear turquoise blue waters will never be forgotten. Service was excellent and up to mark of what is expected of a Taj property.
