The album reached #1 on the U.S. album charts.

Allmusic.com gave Exotica a 3 star review:

Exotica introduced the hit “Quiet Village,” catapulted the ersatz musical idiom of the same name, and brought much attention to the Martin Denny Group from visitors to the group’s base in Hawaii. Even the gorgeous jacket photo — of “exotica girl” Sandy Warner peeking out from a bamboo curtain — is a classic of the era.
