A paradise in Havelock- Taj Exotica

Taj is known for its hospitality and Taj Exotica Havelock has proved it once again. The warm welcome with a Nicobari song sang by the Taj team will simply touch your hearts. The villa and rooms will meet your expectation. The front desk manager Rahil has made our stay pleasant in every possible way. He has helped us in rescheduling our ferry tickets so that we can enjoy more in the resort. All the staffs are very generous. There was many activities in the resort which you will simply enjoy. Resort has direct access to Radhanagar beach and you can enjoy the sunset with the Hi-tea provided by the resort.

Fantastic!!

I recently visited the resort with my mother and were blown away by the tranquil location, private access to one of the nicest beaches I've seen and amazing staff. Right from the reception Bhargava and colleagues made us comfortable. High tea by the beach is highly recommended with great snacks and a great view of the sunset. Go early or late to the beach as it gets scorching hot midday. We ate very well mostly sticking to turtle house where Vipin, Mohit and the chef took great care of us, serving us fantastic seafood and cocktails. Each villa is exceptionally well appointed, huge and takes the natural habitat into consideration. It's hard to top the location but the staff and villas make it a bucket list visit.

Signature Experiences

Explore the secrets of the underwater life with the incredible excursions on offer. Try night kayaking in the mangroves, row in pairs post-sunset towards the unique eco-system, you'll hopefully spot rare species such as the White Bellied Eagles and Blue Eyed Andaman Bulbuls. What makes this excursion extra magical is the hundreds of tiny phytoplankton that light up in the still, dark waters. Other exciting trips include Game Fishing, Snorkelling & Scuba Diving and Turtle Nesting. As Andaman is one of the richest coral reefs in the world, its a must see when you visit the beautiful island.
