If you are looking for place in Maldives, it has to be Taj

Basingstoke, United Kingdom

I recently stayed at Vivanta, it was a fabulous stay and will be in memories for years to come. It had the perfect relaxing stay to offer, and staff is ever willing to help you. From the time I got into motor boat till I was transferred back to airport, everything was almost flawless. I stayed in Water Villa, but I guess beach villas are equally good. Water villa offers great sunset views and feel of staying on top of water, beach villa will likely offer sunrise views. I went in for "All Inc" package, and I will strongly recommend you to do so, else you may get ripped off. Food was top notch so were drinks, could have been even better if likes of some single malt whisky had been added in the All Inc package (and not restricted to Red Label and Glenfiddich). Infinity pool is great too. Big shout to all 171 members in staff, mainly Varun and Samir. Things that can be improved: I had a shared transfer from airport, and one family got delayed at airport and we kept waiting for an hour with no water. Taj surely can do better by at least offering its guests some drinks. Am assuming it was not a new thing in case of shared transfer that one family gets stuck for long and rest families are penalised in the hot and humid airport.
