We are so glad we chose Taj for our honeymoon. The rooms, the service, and the ambiance were just amazing. The deep end restaurant had amazing 5 star worthy food. The place is expansive, but is still worth it. We stayed 4 days here and at another resort for 2 days and can clearly see why Taj is so much...

I wasn't prepared for the transition from a nicely appointed cruiser with cold towels and bottled water to a welcome at the dock with a drummer.

As soon as I reached the place I was mesmerized by its beauty. Transparent waters and amazing hospitality made my stay truly wonderful, the India cuisine in the 24 Degree restaurant was amazing. The amazing snorkeling trip in crystal clear water was to die for. A must go place specially for couples.

We stayed here for five days in December 2014. While planning the trip, I had come across some rave reviews about this place and hardly any negative ones.
