The Taj Exotica Resort is spread out over the island of Emboodhu Finolhu. A series of private villas, either oceanfront or built over the lagoon, gives panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Guests may jump into the water for a swim without leaving their rooms. Boardwalks connect the villas to the restaurants and the Jiva Grande Spa, where treatments and massages are given at the water's edge. Bed and breakfast specials are often available.
The Gili Lankanfushi Resort is a collection of over-water villas connected to the island of Lankanfushi by boardwalks. Some, like the Crusoe Residence Villas, are set off on their own and come with private boats or the use of resort pontoons to get back and forth to shore. The Experience restaurant offers dining on the beach, while the Over Water Bar sits stilts above the lagoon. The Meera Spa also sits over the lagoon, with some areas having glass floors.Learn more about Geography
