Pleasant but not 5 star

Nice location on the beach, surrounded by protective garden from the heat, with plenty of privacy. Many food options and difficult to imagine any diner who wouldn't be impressed by the range of choice or quality of food. The bathroom needs more intensive cleaning to remove residual smells. Nice snorkelling for beginners and protected swimming in a man-made lagoon. There are a few snorkelling expeditions, and water sports at additional cost.

My wife and I had our honeymoon and stayed in a water villa. This was by far one of the best resort or hotel experiences either of us have ever had. If you're looking for a luxurious and relaxing holiday you want to visit this Taj hotel. You would not find better staff and service right from your arrival to departure. We were met by a rep at the male airport, we had a smooth transfer by speed boat to the island and on arrival to the island we were greeted by staff with welcome drinks and cold towels; even the executive chef and GM show up to receive and bid farewell to all guests. Check-in was done in our rooms rather than making us walk to the reception and was really smooth. The water villa was beautiful overlooking the perfectly clear blue water lagoon. You'll wake up with the sunrise and want to jump in and swim or snorkel in that lagoon all day The room itself was well furnished and stocked with all essentials and replenished promptly twice a day or upon request. Turndown service was included and didn't need to be requested. I don't have enough words to describe the food at Taj coral reef. My wife and I went over to basically compliment the chefs every single day. Breakfast includes a large buffet selection, an omelette station, and a hot food menu from which you can order
