Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Andaman Islands
A view of Havelock Beach in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Opening: March 2018
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands, an archipelago between India and Thailand in the Bay of Bengal, is rolling out the red carpet for luxury newcomer Taj Exotica Resort & Spa.
If the brand's other hotels are any indication, the Andaman address should be a crowd-pleaser.
From its plot on Havelock Island, the resort offers a mix of crescent white beaches backed by jungle, as well as easy access to the archipelago's colorful coral reefs and mangroves.
Keeping with local traditions, the 75 villas are inspired by thatched-roof tribal huts (typically made with dried coconut leaves) matched with contemporary colors and Taj's famous service.
