Best resort ever for families!
Taj Exotica is a must stay 5star hotel for families especially. Excellent service!!! Regan, the rooms manager was super helpful and polite. He upgraded us to an indulgence suit which was absolutely amazing and made our stay so comfortable. We had our own pool and my kids had a fantastic time. The waiters at the restaurant were very friendly and served everything really well. Special mention about Jai, a wonderful waiter at the buffet restaurant. He was just lovely, and made the best espresso coffe for my husband. Real luxury resort, with super nice and polite staff all around. 10 out of 10 rating from me and my family. Service really makes a hotel stand out from another and Taj exotica surely offered excellent service! Thank you
