The overall experience right from reservation, arrival to departure was a series of seamless delightful experiences with the staff and management team at Taj Coral Reef attending and responding to all our needs in real time and most times very proactivley. Our sincere gratitude to Mr. Samir Khanna, Mr. Arun, Mr. Brij, Mr. Ranjith, Ms. Tanika, Ms. Monisha, Mr. Kannan, Mr. Aviv, Mr. Selim, Mr. Najah, Mr. Dinesh and the entire team at Taj Coral Reef for making our stay so comfortable and memorable. A special mention to Mr. Samir Khanna for extending such a warm welcome, for constantly raising the bar and for sharing his wonderful experiences with us... for making us feel so much at home. Both my wife & I truly enjoyed the hospitality and surprises; making this one of our most cherished holidays. Thank you for all your efforts and wishing the team at Taj Coral Reef the very best. Don't ever stop smiling and keep shinning :) Thank you.

We visited the Vivanta by Taj Coral Reef, Maldives for our annual family vacation. Maldives is blessed with wonderful waters and staying at the Taj would add to this pleasure. Right from the time of booking, they have been prompt and helpful. Thanks Ms. Tanika Taneja for helping us with our booking. Following her suggestions, we chose the two bedroom Nirwana pool villa and it was a perfect choice for the family. Each and every member of the staff of the resort were very helpful in their own way to make the guests comfortable. We were on a half board package, but if you love your mocktails and cocktails it would be advisable to go in for the ' all inclusive package '. Thanks to Brij, Carmin, Kannan in the F & B team for the culinary delights and service with a smile. Special thanks to Mr. Vishal Pahua, the IT manager of the resort for helping us with the wifi and Aadil of housekeeping for keeping our villa spotlessly clean. Sun rise and Sun Set on the sea are something which should not be missed. Water lovers should experience scuba diving and snorkeling. The guys at the dive center are also very co-operative and cheerful. Last but not the least, a loud shout in appreciation for the captain of this island, Mr. Samir Khanna. He carries the huge responsibility of 'Tajness' on his shoulders and does it with a lot of pleasure and pride. It was always a pleasure to meet and interact with him during his early morning strolls and breakfast rounds. Thank you Samir for the lovely memories. Vivanta by Taj Coral Reef, Maldives features among one of the 100 best hideaway hotels in the world and it lives up to it in each and every way. All the best guys.....keep up the good work.

Special thanks to Samir Khanna, General Manager, and his team for their excellent welcome and for making our honeymoon unforgettable. Oustanding facilities and excellent service in a wonderful location.

A holiday in the Maldives is always going to be fantastic but the the Vivanta by Taj - Coral Reef takes it to a whole other level. Every single member of the teams without exception went out of their way to ensure our comfort and enjoyment - we never needed to ask for anything. From the moment we were met by the speedboat we were treated like the most valued guests. The teams (housekeeping, reception, Lattitude restaurant, pool bar and everyone else we saw every day was friendly, helpful and respectful. Everyone went about their jobs with a love and pride which creates the most amazing atmosphere. Special thanks must go to Rishfaan our housekeeper, Brij at Lattitude with Muhammed and Shahid. The food was exquisite (we were all inclusive but it was never restricting). The resort is spotless - the pool and area around in particular. We felt extremely comfortable here - the teams at this hotel made our holiday the amazing experience it was. We now understand what the advertisement means by "Tajness". We can still feel it here at home in Otley.

Everyone is so help full and they ensure that guests gains atleast several Kgs of weight with many dishes.Thanks to Mr Kannan and his colleagues. 3.Reef Bar has awesome music and lots of varieties of drinks.I tried Long Island Tea cocktail that had Tacquila, Vodka, Rum, Gin and one more local drink.Suman ensured that we had great time in Reef bar.Its a must try for those people who are Cocktail lovers. 4.Rayfish feeding in evening 5.Spent lot of time in Pool and Jaccuzie. 6.Movie near reception was surprise for all. 7.Taj Vivanta Coral Reef members ensured that we had big smile while leaving this awesome place. 8.We reached back to airport within 45 Mins as sea was calm and enjoyed Double Rainbow which was big surprise for us. 9.Rashid helped us by arranging local guide who was very helpfull for Male excursion . 10.Countless wonderful moments in 3 days visit to this resort.Must visit place to understand what Tajness is.

Should you want to visit Maldives the natural choice for Indians is Taj Properties and if it's for South Indians it should be Vivanta by Taj. With Executive Chef ARUN at his best with food and Khanan for exceptional levels of service. Not just satisfaction it's delight. It's the best place for food, service and ambience. I don't think, with my 12 Island visits experience on my hat, anyone else in Indian Ocean can beat the hospitality of Taj, Food of ARUN - Executive Chef and courtesy of Khanan - F & B Executive. Thanks Taj and Waah Taj. Would love to treat my parents with an holiday on this North Atol Vivanta. Indians don't ever think of a second place other than Taj on this Island of Republic o Maldives - Take my word - You wouldn't be disappointed👍😊

Dear Taj coral reef team, I stayed at your property on 16th Sep -21st Sep 2017 for my honeymoon with my better half Revathy. I should first say that the stay and experience with you was awesome and excellent. There was nothing we found uncomfortable during our stay. From our arrival at male we were received by the hotel staff Mr Shiyaz. Even before we looked for us , he spotted us in no time. Boat transfer was hassle free. We had a very warm reception at the hotel. They ran us through the whole property showing us the various facilities like water sports centre , dive centre , swimming pool and all restaurants. Room were amply spacious and had good interiors. Food was one area that I completely enjoyed. Ours was breakfast and dinner package. You had a wide spread in your buffet which was perfect mix of Indian, English, Oriental cuisines. We had stay of 5 days so we enjoyed all cuisines day by day in turns. Your local Maldivian curry riha deserves a special kudos and is must try for any guest. Restaurant managers Mr.Brij, Mr. Ashraf and the team members Mr Kannan took good care of us on all days. Not alone being friendly, they took the responsibility of ensuring that we experienced all types of cuisines during our stay. They were extremely courteous and became good friends with us. Candle light dinner on shore side was an life time romantic experience which we would cherish in our memories. We have noticed even the general manager and many HODs were taking part in service of guest during the morning buffet. This gesture tells how well they want to take care of their guests. House keeping services were excellent. They were reliable and very safe. Mr suresh credit manager was extremely cheerful and positive person who were taking care of us from day one to the last moment. He was extremely helpful and there is no words to thank him. Without him our trip wouldn’t have been so memorable. Sunset cruise was a great experience. We would like to thank Monisha , mr suresh ,mr Ranjith, venilla and ms shahiha for helping us with snaps. On an whole we had an awesome honeymoon at your place and we would definitely come back again. We would also strongly recommend your resort for our friends and relatives.

what a fantastic place for a trip with my new wife, it was like how we thought paradise may be!!!!! the sting ray feeding at 5-00 was the high light of my day with the black tip sharks and GT';s swimming with them too!!! the diving was so easy just a short walk from the dive center and you are in the sea, and within a five min short swim over some fantastic coral you reach a drop off and an old fishing boat laying in about 30-40 foot covered in fish of all shapes and sizes, mind blowing!!! good staff and very helpful room was unbelivable with a swim up area with the odd black tip cruising past in the evening, i may add they don't bit!!!lol

I stayed with this resort or my honeymoon and it was the best decision ever, the facilities are beautiful, the food is exquisite and so much choice for lunch and dinner, but most of all what i enjoyed was the staff work work sooooo hard but you can never see that as they always smiling, happy to help and accommodate and extremely polite. They are really a dream team and i was so lucky to engage in conversations with most of them and most welcoming from The General Manager Samir to from Carmin, Ranjith, Nanjappa, shahid (absolute legend) Ahmed from sports team and Mr Brij who would make sure we were looked after from the moment we stepped foot in that place to the moment we left. there is no doubt in my mind that i will be returning one day! I must say the the little touches like my photo frame, the plant planted, the service in the room, the cleanliness of the island all added such value to our stay! Thank you again

We have chosen this place through Virgen Holidays. Amazing place, food and the staff, who is very attentive all the time ,delivering outstanding customer service. Great place to relax and do lots of sport actives, especially scuba diving, diving..we will defenatly go back there 1 day again!
