Taj Exotica Resort and Spa has teamed with Condé Nast Traveller, the London-based luxury travel magazine, to offer one lucky reader a complimentary four-night stay for two guests. A treatment at the luxurious spa is included with the prize, as is a complimentary dinner at the Deep End Restaurant.
Deemed a “must visit” by the magazine, the resort is located just 15 minutes from the Malé International Airport. Guests are whisked away by a first-class speedboat to the exclusive Taj Exotica Resort and Spa. The newly relaunched resort offers visitors a romantic getaway to the stunning South Malé Atoll, one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives.
Guests have their choice of 64 enchanting accommodations. The various palm-thatched Lagoon and Beach Villas feature private sundecks, fresh water plunge pools and tropical outdoor rain showers that offer breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. The stilts-built Lagoon Suite offers the rare opportunity to sleep over the water, while the Rehendi Presidential Villa Suite provides a glassed bathroom with an infinite view of the ocean and a suspended hammock over the lagoon.
The award-winning resort also offers guest the opportunity to relax in its authentic Indian spa. “Blending ancient Indian Wisdom with contemporary therapies,” the Jiva Grande Spa offers body scrubs, wraps and yoga sessions alongside traditional Ayurveda treatments. One free spa treatment will be included in the Condé Nast prize pack.
Guests are presented with a rich assortment of indoor and outdoor activity choices, including dolphin diving, catamaran sailing, banana riding, sea kayaking, sunset fishing and island explorations. Guests also have access to a well-stocked community library, fitness center and bar with walk-in cellar.
An array of casual and fine-dining choices is offered at the resort’s three restaurants. The Equator Bar, 24 Degrees and The Deep End serve up traditional Maldivian dishes and contemporary international cuisine.
To win a chance to stay at the posh resort, participants must answer a simple question on the Condé Nast Traveller website by March 31. Although the prize package does not include the flight fare or the required travel insurance, the speed boat transfers to and from the airport will be provided. Travel arrangements, which must take place between May and September 2011, must be made through the Taj London Sales office.
