We have booked through DialAFlight for many years and we are always delighted. Our holiday to the Maldives was magical and Rupert was always available to answer any queries unlike some other ccompanies that take forever to answer the phone or do not respond at all!
My ‘go to’ travel agent going forwards and already recommended to several friends who I hear are using your services too. Thanks for a great service.
Wonderful service from Matthew and a great holiday!
As always, very happy with Jessie's work. Always clear with her communication and very proactive
Saf Patel is fantastic
This is the best that Britain has and beats the others by a mile. Gino is a genius in all he does. He has the answers at the tip of his fingers (while typing) and at the tip of his tongue (while talking). I'll be back with DialAFlight again and again. Cheers to you all!
Thanks Des, 110% as always. Helpful. Thorough. Friendly and best service ever.
I have contacted Jim Camahin with a suggestion for inter island transport to Reethi Beach, ie seaplane instead of scheduled flight plus speedboat.
Thanks to Kennedy for all her help and changing the whole trip last minute! It was wonderful and memories made for a lifetime
Our first trip with you and all went well. Thank you
Thanks for everything, we had a wonderful time. Samuel sorted out the itinerary perfectly.
Megan is an absolute superstar and really looked after us. She is an asset to your organisation.
Simple to follow and thorough itinerary. The transfer company arranged for us in Mauritius (coquille Bonheur) were amazing and helped us throughout our trip.
Hummingbird were efficient and good to deal with once we landed in Male. Thanks for your clear and precise communication.
Everything went smoothly with the booking - the flights and the extra luggage made our holiday well worth it. Will go to Mauritius again next year in November and will be sure to book with DialAFlight again.
The holiday worked out really well and Kurumba in the Maldives was amazing. It was just a pity they have developed the area across the water with high rise flats which spoilt the desert island feel.
Todd has been great
Shame you couldn’t do anything about weather
Everything went smoothly
Always a pleasure dealing with you
Not knowing much about Mauritius we relied on Tony Judge's advice on where to go and where to stay. His advice was spot on, as was his help in changing the seating on our return flight.
Everything went smoothly, not one single hitch. Perfection
This has been by far one of my favourite holidays and the service provided by DialAFlight has been outstanding. In particular Jackson Cowton has been incredible and always on hand to help.
Can’t fault anything about the service or help I was given and our holiday was out of this world.
Roy gets it right everytime.
Dexter was there with information and support when needed. Great company, would thoroughly recommend
Only disappointment was the seating in Virgin Upper Class for the flight - it was awful and not as expected.
No issues. Very responsive on all questions, and holiday went smoothly.
Our trip to the Seychelles was amazing. Manny Mittoo was professional when booking and always got back with any questions we had. Will recommend DialAFlight to family and friends. Thank you for hassle free travel and wonderful holiday.
Libby is always fantastic and delivered an incredible trip. Thank you!!
Sitting next to Miss Chatty, as she texts and eats a deafening packet of Kettle Chips, ruins a trip to the movies. I'd much rather sit on a beach in front of the big screen, being served champagne cocktails and canapés - at least I would after my recent trip to the Maldives, where the fivestar resort of Moofushi puts on this excellent service for guests.
When I came back from the Maldives relaxed and sporting a winter tan, some friends asked whether I'd been bored 'on a desert island with nothing to do’. But far from sitting on a sunlounger all day (although you can do that if you wish) I found my five-day stay at the Constance hotel resorts of Halaveli and Moofushi surprisingly active.
Halaveli has a private island setting in the Maldives’ North Ari Atoll. It's a magical location where the blue of the sea and the white sandy beaches contrast magnificently with the surrounding luxuriant green foliage. Moofushi boasts the ultimate barefoot chic, with villas on dazzling white sand or on stilts that float above the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean.
As well as sparkling white beaches, turquoise sea and all inclusive drinks, both resorts have excellent diving, gym, spa, kids' club, watersports and superb restaurants.
At Halaveli, all accommodation comes with its own infinity pool. And here you can upgrade to a beach villa with an outdoor bathroom and private beach access.
Halaveli is the sort of place you can imagine Madonna or Angelina coming to top up the tan and have bit of R&R. If you do want to venture away from the accommodation you could arrange to jetski over to a nearby island to have dinner cooked by your own private chef. Or you could dine at the exceptional Jing restaurant – I loved the lobster bisque, caviar blinis, sea bass noodles and yellow fin tuna chunks. All restaurants at Halaveli and Moofushi have their own very helpful sommelier to help you navigate impressive wine lists.
One activity not to be missed is the diving. It’s been nine years since I did my diving qualification in Ko Tao, Thailand, but after my first dive in the Maldives I soon got back into the swing of it.
Some incredible sights awaited me at Moofushi. Although the resort may appear to be an island in the middle of nowhere just a few metres underwater is a fishy metropolis.
Coral reefs are teeming with life and almost immediately I was swimming with schools of brightly coloured or silver fish, black jack fish, sharks and sting rays. After that initial dive I couldn’t wait to get out again and at dinner that night I was told that we were heading out the next day to see the manta rays. I wasn’t really sure what they were and I thought the bloke telling me about them was getting very excited about a fish.
It turns out that manta rays are quite big fish and as the largest member of the ray family they are roughly the size of a small car. They are giant and graceful creatures
The mantas seemed completely untroubled by the groups of divers that had come to see them and fly so close that you can almost touch them. I have to say that I owe an apology to that enthusiastic man. He was totally correct, it is an unmissable experience.
After the dive with the mantas it was time for some relaxation and a delicious buffet lunch of seafood accompanied by a crisp rosé.
More fabulous relaxation was to follow as I was booked into the spa for a massage. The spa at Moofushi is a series of water villas which have a glass wall allowing you to look out on the crystal clear sea (merely describing it as blue doesn't do it justice - it's a sensational glittering hue that's a visual feast).
But best of all the floors also have a glass window, so if you can fight the urge not to close your eyes you can watch the fish swim by while you have your massage.
Obviously I could only keep my eyes open for four seconds before I dropped off into a semi-coma, but I did manage to see a couple of baby sharks.
Halaveli also do spa treatments and offer a special ‘after-sun’ massage, perfect for the pale skinned guest such as me.
