World-class Taj hospitality on a pristine islet in the Maldives, including speedboat transfers, a sunset cruise, couples' spa treatment and a combination of beach and over-water villas

Perhaps more synonymous with paradise than anywhere else in the world, this remote Indian Ocean archipelago could never fail to impress. Taj Coral Reef Resort and Spa Maldives (previously Vivanta by Taj - Coral Reef) lies beside a lazy blue lagoon in the North Malé Atoll and has been named by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the places to stay - quite the accolade, when lavish private-island resorts are what the Maldives does best.

Featuring just over 60 luxurious, contemporary-chic villas, the vibe here is suitably languid. There are three laid-back restaurants (including a pizzeria and South American grill), a tranquil spa, 24-hour gym and an infinity pool - all of which come a close second to the utterly phenomenal natural beauty that surrounds the island. And since you'll be travelling there by speedboat, you can, of course, get some of the most mind-blowing views of the ocean colour scene before you even arrive.

Good to know


A Green Tax of USD 6 per person, per night is not included and is payable directly to the resort. This helps fund environmental projects in the Maldives.
