Taj Exotica Resort & Spa has recently opened its doors to travellers who seek luxury, comfort and quality on the virgin beaches of Indian Ocean. Occupying 46 acres on the famed Radhanagar Beach at Havelock Island, Taj Exotica Resort and Spa, is a luxurious gateway to a globally significant biodiversity hotspot in the Bay of Bengal. Fringed by strip of mangroves and a river overlooking the beach, the resort is a homage to the secluded Andaman and Nicobar archipelago stretching for 700 kms from the southern tip of Burma towards the north of Sumatra, a magical medley of rainforests, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, unspoilt beaches and ancient tribal cultures.
Designed to showcase and nurture the island’s natural resources, the resort is dotted with 50 modern luxury villas on stilts under a canopy of Coconut and Palmyra trees, a contemporary haven built without cutting off a single tree. Guests can rest over the massive buttresses of an Andaman Padauk tree, ruminate by the water lily pond after a lavish massage or hit the treadmill at the fitness centre built around a majestic Mahua tree that soars up one level to the Olympic-sized infinity swimming pool. The modish, 1580 sq. ft. plus residences in sustainable plantation timber are inspired by the dwellings of the Jarawa tribe.
The resort offers a bouquet of fun activities for children that engage them in the marine and terrestrial ecology of the island. Between picking mangoes, mud apples and mulberries at our bountiful orchards to jungle treks, beach picnics, supervised scuba diving and shell-craft lessons at our vibrant Recreational Center with plenty of post-meal snoozes on villa decks, there isn’t a dull moment for young and curious minds. Meanwhile, adults can dive into sensational dining experiences at our concept restaurants – Turtle House, The Settlers – or luxuriate in beauty and wellness treatments.
The island is an endless source of delight and discovery. Unravel the secrets of the outdoors and underwater life with exclusive experiences in game fishing, night kayaking in the mangroves, turtle nesting excursions, scuba diving and snorkelling. Whether witnessing a remarkable sunsets or savouring an exquisite meal at an amorous table for two in our mangroves, the Taj Exotica Resort and Spa, Andamans opens up the luxuriant secrets of this secluded Eden like never before.
