You got me to Baku, thanks
Darryl did an excellent job and kept us updated during these trying times
Everything was, as usual, organised well. Very responsive on the phone and always easy to get hold of you. Great service which I will continue to use.
Theo and Jeff were so helpful
In this Covid situation my booking was changed multiple times but this was dealt with absolute patience. I highly recommend DialAFlight.
Tara always goes above and beyond. Thank you
Thank you to the staff for their excellent service.
Really helpful and knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend and use again.
Travel is precarious at the moment and having DialAFlight backing me gave the reassurance I needed. The entire team were helpful, answered my queries, dealt with airlines when I couldn't and got me out of a pickle. I've booked flights with them numerous times
Lily made the whole booking process so easy and was super helpful! She was always at the other end of the phone whenever we needed her throughout our holiday to help with covid enquiries. I can’t recommend her enough!
Always a pleasure booking our trips though you. Super simple - say when and where we need to go and leave the rest to you all. I tell everyone about your company and the lack of stress.
As always Philip was a true professional, so helpful and highly efficient. Many thanks to him for organising what was a difficult trip
Stan is very helpful and professional
I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to your team! Especially Aidan who has absolutely blown us away with his customer service and for going above and beyond to ensure we landed safely during this difficult time. Last week my partner and I were stuck in Dubai with my Granddad, Dad and Auntie all in hospital extremely ill with Covid. I couldn’t get a flight back to the UK however Aidan managed to sort it for us with absolutely no stress at all! This level of customer care during this extremely stressful time has meant the absolute world to us, and we cannot thank you enough. I have recommended you guys to multiple family / friends/ clients and I will continue to do so!
Abbie is an absolute star
I cannot believe the level of service you offer. From the initial booking to the issues due to Covid you have been outstanding. From dealing with Rudy, Mark or Marco I literally couldn’t fault you or thank you enough. I’ll be coming back for any future trips as well as any business trips.
Amazing service - polite, friendly and helpful
On the ball with everything. Very competitive prices and kept us informed with frequent updates.
Another fantastic trip. Had to make a few amendments due to family reasons but Ryan was on the case and sorted at the drop of a hat.
Very helpful as this was not your normal getaway. Everyone involved at DialAFlight was fantastic.
Annabelle is simply fab!
Best holiday ever!
Excellent service from Zac as usual
Helen very helpful as always - there to help and advise. Would recommend highly
Great one-to-one holiday planning
Really good service and pleasant staff
Thank you to all the staff at DialAFlight for making our family holiday even better than we could have expected.
Claire, Wayne and Gino. Try any of them for a professional, responsive and informative travel discussion.
Outstanding service and I will certainly recommend
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.
