Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives Gifts Meal Boxes to the Employees of the Health Protection Agency

In line with its purpose of giving back to the community Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives served lunch boxes to all employees of the Health Emergency Operation Centre, Maldives in recognition and appreciation of those who have been tirelessly working in the front lines of the nation’s battle against the pandemic.


Gathering inspiration from the spirit of Tajness that forms the genesis of the resort’s DNA, the team got together on 2nd September to carry out this gesture of goodwill to show their respect and gratitude to the real-life superheroes who have been working selflessly to save the nation from the ill effects of the pandemic. The meal box was carefully curated and prepared by the dedicated team of chefs at Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives. It contained local delights and immunity-boosting superfoods with a personalised thank-you note.

“Our aim was not to provide them with a meal but to show our gratitude for the efforts they have been putting in every day. It’s always encouraging to see the spirit of sincere care and enthusiasm of our associates not only towards guests but all stakeholders, partners, and our communities,” said Samrat Datta, General Manager Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives.

This initiative was very well received by the ministries, who lauded the resort’s kind gesture aimed towards boosting the morale and spirit of ministry employees during this difficult time.
