Wooden Beachside Hotels

The Vivanta by Taj Combines a Lavish Holiday with Contemporary Living

— May 15, 2012 — Art & Design
There is a new lavish hotel in the Maldives that is in a great location and has incredible exotic designs. The Vivanta by Taj combines a lavish holiday with contemporary living, and is sure to be an unforgettable resort experience. Taj has reconstructed the typical resort with its wood and thatched themed interior, and is surrounded by white sand and coconut palm trees.

The resort has a rustic, yet luxurious feel, and the types of rooms range from beachside villas overlooking the Indian Ocean to water villas which sit on the edge of the lagoon with their own thatched deck. With its remarkable ocean views, sunsets and open-concept accommodations, the hotel will have you easily picturing a moonlit swim in one of the resort’s own diving sites and snorkelling along their reef. This is a resort experience ideal for couples, honeymooners, divers and beach lovers -- just don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!
