Stayed at the Resort on a short vacation trip. The Island is very small which makes it even more special. The two Restaurants extremely expensive but the Quality is also extremely high. They offer special dinners like BBQ on the Beach which is a must. Having your Private Chef on the Beach is a one time experience. Superb Water Sports and Dive Center. The Island was fully booked but it never felt crowded. Rooms are small but if you go to the Maldives you normally don't spend too much time in your room I guess. All in all a typical Taj experience. Highest service Quality guaranteed. I'd definitely recommend this resort and would choose it over one of the big ones again. Thanks for making my stay a wonderful one.

Simply Outstanding. Lovely Place, Supportive Staff Members and Outstanding Food. Overall a complete package for family outing. JUST FEEL LIKE HOME THERE :) One must explore water sports in this part to see lovely coral under sea. Highlight was the Sting Ray Feeding, Other fishes including Baby Reef Sharks are simply mesmerizing.

Visited this property in Feb 2017 for celebrating my wedding anniversary. The property is absolutely breathtaking. Approx. 45 mins away from the Airport. The water villa was mesmerizing. The room was well furnished and clean. The view from the room was beautiful. The food was excellent. Complimentary water was a definite advantage. The stringray feeding exercise in the evening was a great experience. However, was disappointed with the overall service. The anniversary room decoration was made on one day after my anniversary date (i know its a complimentary thing but still would have appreciated if it had happened on the given date). They brought wrong dishes against my dinner order on 28th Feb. On the departure day, the receptionist guided us to the wrong end of the island for boarding the departure boat (they later then picked us up and took to the right place). Minor glitches in service here and there but that did not leave us in good taste at the end of the trip. Expected much better service from this place.

TAJ CORAL REEF ... the trip to Maldives with the stay at this property can be summed up in just three words ::: GETTING INDULGED ^MAXIMUM. The moment you land at the Male Airport and board their boat for a one hour sail across the Indian Ocean ... you can feel that the stay is going to be an unforgettable experience. I am in fact at the moment in my ocean view room hearing the waves kissing my room -- am so overwhelmed by my experience here that I thought of giving the review before I check out tomorrow morning. # The hospitality and the team headed by Sameer, the GM of the resort, is just amazing. # Sameer makes it a point to greet each of the guest individually during breakfast and hands over the plates personally to each of them. # The Chef comes personally to check up and ask the fresh preparations one wants. # The resort is just eco-friendly. Each and every corner of the resort is using the principle of the 3R's. The cleanliness is just remarkable. # The food at their restaurant, Latitude, is just heavenly. Every morning after the breaksfast, Satya, the Sous Chef, came and enquired from us the dishes we wanted for Lunch and Dinner. We had a Lucknow ke Kabab theme one night, an Italian dinner the other night, a Thai & Chinese dinner the next night, and a Punjabi dinner the first night. The preparations were like nothing we ever had. # Being a diabetic, I had asked for bitterguard juice to be given to me every morning ... 6.30AM .. the juice was there daily. # Had a bout of indigestion ... they sent Khichdi for me in my room. # The Reef Bar was equally hospitable. # The water sports facility has number of activities for both swimmers and non-swimmers. If you are an adventure seeking and thrill loving individual -- plunge into the pool and start the ardenaline rush flowing. Tips :: We had booked the stay all inclusive ... breakfast, lunch, evening tea, dinner and drinks (both the tipsy and the non-tipsy variety). With this we were free of our choice of drinks and food. Learning :: always will try to book an all inclusive holiday. Best part :: There was no buffet for lunch or dinner .. One can place his / her individual choice of food. Area of Improvement :: The water sports and diving and snorkeling department can be more pro-active and guest friendly. An introductory ritual / half an hour video show on the same to the non-initiated will help a lot. The resort has its own desalination plant, electric power generation, etc ... Everything here is self generated and procured. Hats off to the TAJ group and Sameer for giving an experience of the lifetime. KEEP IT UP!!!

Thanks Taj for making such an wonderful holiday possible.truly ,its majestic stay . soo cozy and comfortable, no pro and cons .Food is really amazing with enough vegetarian options .yes one thing , the spa tariffs could be further justified .

الفندق رائع سكنت في فيلا على الماء الاستقبال والتعامل والنظافة على اعلى مستوى والافطار كان لذيذ و مشبع "بوفيه وطلب من المنيو" . منتجع صغير ولكن مرتب و العاملين متعاونين جدا واعجز عن وصف لباقتهم و تفانيهم في الخدمة خاصة مدير المنتجع سمير I thank all the staff especially the manager of the resort Mr. Samir. You were really wonderful,We spent three memorable days with you. I will definitely recommend VIVANTA to my friends as the best resort option in the Maldives.

We went there for three days. I love the infinity pool, overall cleanliness is good. I am disappointed with the food. Hash brown is old not crispy, granola for yogurt is not crispy as well, the fruits does not look fresh. Considering the price the food should be better. We stayed in water bungalow, interior decoration can be better but I'm satisfied. Just being a bit picky because of the price.

This little island is the best place to be if you want to have a getaway from the city noise & busy lifestyle. The staffs are very friendly and willing to help us whenever we needed one. And because the island is pretty small, you'll soon be able to recognize all the staffs and develop a sense of familiarity with them. I think this is the key to feeling cozy and relax there. Overall it was a great experience, something quite different from the usual, with nature very close to your heart (& doorstep).

The service, as expected from any of the Taj resorts is outstanding. Right from the time we made the reservation till we left the island, there is not one thing that even remotely caused any discomfort. We were promptly picked up after we landed in Male and after the boat ride, were in our rooms in no time. The place is so peaceful and pristine. We were in a beach front villa and the view from the room was just breathtaking. Activities wise there isn't a whole lot to do except swim, snorkel or dive. I would highly recommend the Blue lagoon snorkel trip which is a great guided snorkel tour. My wife isn't comfortable swimming in the ocean but she had a great time. The food at the restaurant is great and the service is fantastic. The reef bar is good and I only wish the drink prepaid package included some better selection of scotch.

I have stayed first time out of India but trust me the view and the Hotel is superb and staffs are so nice and humble. The view of the Hotel so nice that i don't feel to come back and the breakfast is also amazing.
