Excellent service from start to finish. And a great team to help if you have any problems.
Best trip ever!
Nothing to do with DialAFlight. But I will not be flying BA again
Tyler came through again as usual.
Teddy and his team did an exceptional job
As always, Nick sorted out my flights with pure professionalism and made booking my flights at short notice pain and hassle free.
Despite the last minute cancellation of the outgoing flight you stepped up and found us a flight with a different airline on the same day to get us out there. I would recommend you to everyone and anyone who asks without hesitation.
Everything worked like clockwork. We were so impressed with the quality of the hotels apart from Saigon which was in a perfect location but was primarily a business hotel. Staff didn't speak very good English, breakfast started to run out of things by 8am!However we had a fantastic holiday and am already recommending you to everyone I know.
To be honest I wouldn't use Turkish Airlines again. The flight was too long and food wasn't to my liking.
Very patient as I had a few panics with the app before I left. Every email I sent was answered quickly and efficiently. I had help booking my seats and they were perfect too. It was my first time travelling to Thailand on my own and I felt really looked after. Excellent service.
Fergus was exceptional in putting our package holiday together. I’ve used DialAFlight numerous times and will continue.
Rocky is a star
Fab service as always from Guy ...very helpful and really spot on with his advice.
Faultless as always
Excellent price everything went smoothly very stress free and knew there was someone on the end of a phone if required
I have used DialAFlight twice now and find them to be very helpful, courteous and friendly. Will use again in the future.
Perfect, the same as every year, so helpful, excellent service!
As usual very good service.
I'm a regular client. You guys are great
Many thanks, it was a perfect journey.
It's the best travel agent for all your requirements
Another great trip. All arrangements made by Robert worked out fine. Will definitely recommend and I will be using DailAFlight again soon.
Absolutely brilliant, as usual. Seamless transfers and quality hotels. Great service throughout!
Rupert. All perfect thank you
Flight to Bangkok excellent with Qatar, brand new planes, plane half empty so changed seats to 4 empty and stretched out
From my very first phone call to DialAFlight, Donovan was absolutely brilliant. The price of my flight to Bangkok then onto Chiang Mai was so good that I booked it there and then. I was not disappointed, Thai Airways fantastic. Donovan kept me up to date and if he needed to call me back then he did as promised. He guided me through my check-in at Heathrow as I had informed him that I was travelling alone.
Very good follow up and attention to detail
Brilliant! I will be using you guys in future to book my travel requirements
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.
