About Taj Exotica Resort & Spa
Sail away to Havelock Island on the Andaman Archipelago to find your luxury villa. It rests on stilts beneath the coconut and Palmyra palms that line Radhanagar Beach, 18 hectares of which are managed by Taj Exotica Resort & Spa. While the warm Indian Ocean is delightful for swimming and dipping your feet on relaxing strolls, you can get a little more adventurous too.
The coral reefs in this region play host to a vast array of marine life, from loggerhead turtles to huge manta rays. Explore these exceptional waters with snorkelling and supervised scuba diving excursions. Inland, you can take jungle treks to explore the mangrove swamps where there are 14 endemic species of bird, including the formidable serpent eagle. If you come between December and February, the resident naturalist guide will take you to observe turtle nesting on the beaches.
The focuses of Taj Exotica Resort & Spa are luxury and conservation. The 50 stylish villas use sustainable timber, and there are solar, biogas and rainwater-harvesting facilities onsite. Meanwhile, all dining experiences here are exceptional, with a range of restaurants to choose from. You can also take a ready-made picnic hamper out onto the beach. Relaxation comes with a sumptuous spa and healthy activities such as morning yoga classes. Whether you’ve come for relaxation or adventure or both, Taj Exotica won’t disappoint.
