Colin was excellent in reorganising our return flights from Dubai which we had to cancel twice because of COVID related issues.
Always a reliable service from DialAFlight. I use no one else
Your company are excellent . We had bad communication from Qatar Airlines and a 20 hr layover with no compensation and very poor communication. Will not fly with them again.
Gavin was brilliant - supportive and helpful
Ewan was fantastic after the issues we had with getting the Covid result but all ended well. Thank you again
Arthur kept in touch with us in the run up to our break in Dubai. We appreciated this.
Wouldn't use Singapore Airlines again - on outward journey there was 10 hours between meals
Everything perfect as usual. Exceptional work by Mason and his colleagues while out of the country and needing help. I can rely on Mason and team to sort any problems that come up. Top work guys 10/10
Abbie delivered - 10/10
Graham and the team are always very helpful and available to answer any questions.Will be booking our future flights with them
Cracking service and very helpful staff as always
Thank you for the advice on trying to get our Qatar Ehteraz app to change green. It turned after 7 days which left us 6 days to go out and about. I was very concerned that we wouldn't be able to enter the airport to return home and Ehteraz made an announcement that they wouldn't be responsible if people couldn't get on their flights. Just thought you should be aware there is a problem at the moment.
DialAFlight are with you all the way there and back. Always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. Excellent. Thanks Guy.
Fantastic service from Raj every time I use DialAFlight. He answered my email whilst I was in Thailand as I was concerned regarding a PCR test requirement when transiting through Dubai with Emirates back to the UK. He assured me all was fine and he was100% correct
Kieran was extremely helpful
Saf goes above and beyond every time we deal with him. An absolute credit to your organisation.
Good personal service in a most difficult time. We never felt alone and we were very well supported
Finn has been very patient and dealt in a professional manner. Overall he gave us an excellent service.
Very good service that we have come to expect as standard from the people of this organisation
Matt who looked after the booking was excellent. Very responsive and attentive. He took care of everything and I would highly recommend DAF to anyone looking to book holidays.
Grant provided clear advice and attention to detail.
Great service from Kieran
Always excellent service - great communication
Ben always gives me the best service and ensures my travel is hassle free!
Fabulous time. Thanks Tristan for all your help - you made our travel simple in these strange times
Reliable and professional service always
We had an excellent service from Des. He is amazing. I would recommend him to my friends.
Just one thing, we didn’t receive an airline reference number before our flight from Doha to Muscat. This became a bit of a worry when checking in at Doha.
Have used DialAFlight many times and they are an excellent company
This year was the first time I've ever taken a long holiday. I was away for a total of three-and-a-half weeks. Everyone was surprised that I took such a long break - last year I managed just three days off.
I decided it was time to relax and get away from running my hotel, the Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Oxfordshire - life is too short to work all the time. I wanted to rediscover a part of the world that has long fascinated me - South East Asia. This region has the most beautiful food, an extraordinary climate, and the people are so warm and friendly.
The food at my hotel has a strong South East Asian influence, particularly the area around Chiang Mai in Thailand. And about 25 years ago I discovered the resort of Chiva-Som in Hua Hin, one of the best spas in the world.
It was the place that ignited my interest in nutrition - something I've developed at Le Manoir with my Raymond Blanc Cookery School.
All those years ago, staff at Chiva-Som were connecting food with health, and within the spa they had the best yogi, the best acupuncturist, the best medicine. For me, visiting here is a way to get back to good health.
Another key element is really learning how to breathe properly so that you 'reconnect' with your body. So each day at Chiva-Som involves detox, exercise, swimming, massage, acupuncture, and, of course, some wonderful spa treatments.
Good food is at the heart of maintaining good health - something the Government is beginning to accept with its plans to give every child a quality, nutritious meal every day.
By staying somewhere like Chiva-Som, you soon realise the benefits of eating good food. This place is a foodie heaven - meals made with herbs grown on site, spices and grain.
During my stay I ate an awful lot of quinoa, fresh, crunchy salads, and different types of rice. The chefs also cooked me lots of fresh fish and delicious vegetables.
The kitchen garden at Chiva-Som is magnificent, although perhaps not as amazing as ours at Le Manoir, because we are obsessive about our garden.
The garden at Le Manoir isn't just a showpiece; it actually has a huge impact on our gastronomy as well. We have eight people working in the garden during the winter and 12 during the summer.
One of the key things about the Chiva-Som experience is meditation. I find meditation very difficult because I always have about 50,000 things in my head at the same time, so to try take them out and meditate - oh my goodness, it's so hard!
Once I was enveloped in the heaven that is Chiva-Som, I was very happy - I had no desire to venture outside. In the resort you are asked not to use your mobile phone outside your room. And that's perfectly correct - after all, you're staying in a place that is calm and restorative, so mobile phones are inappropriate. I must say, however, that I felt the urge to tweet the whole world what a great time I was having!
After a few days of Chiva-Som you become completely Zen-like. At the end of my stay I kept asking myself why I had to leave this wonderful place.
The good news was that my holiday wasn't over. Next we headed to another fabulous get-away-from-it-all resort - the Belmond Napasai in Koh Samui.
Situated between verdant tropical gardens and the shimmering sea, this is a resort that deserves to be described as paradise. Standalone villas sit within 17 acres of tropical gardens, rich with cashew and coconut trees, hibiscus and bougainvillea.
Tempting aromas of fresh local cuisine drifted through the air, and staff greeted every request with a warm smile.
To finish the holiday, we had two wonderful days in Bangkok, staying at the Mandarin Oriental, another heavenly place.
I love Bangkok for its antique shops - you can't keep me away and I always buy something.
The managers at Le Manoir get worried about what I'll come back with: on a previous trip I managed to return with a huge bed (it came back in a container - there wasn't room to bring it with me on the plane!)
Over the years I've bought all sorts of lovely antiques - my house is full of them. This year, I bought only a delightful Buddha made from lapis stone, and a beautiful opium pipe which will join the collection of other pipes in our Opium Room at Le Manoir.
Already I can't wait to go back to Thailand. To me, that's the sign of a perfect holiday.
