Everything went as planned.
Absolutely fantastic service from start to finish. Would definitely recommend to everyone
The package that was put together was excellent. The staff could not have provided a better service.
Les went over and above to assist us
Thanks to Stan for organising this for us. We had an amazing time and everything was exactly as promised.
Jay gave us the perfect holiday - sorted everything from start to finish with plenty of contact leading up to the holiday. We will definitely book through Jay again as we feel we are in safe hands.
Dominic always on hand to advise and support. Thanks to him everything went to plan
We had a really fabulous holiday, all thanks to Marshall, for sorting everything out for us. Everything was as planned. Lovely room. Good food and the weather was fab too. Looking forward to going back again.
As usual, a trouble free and fabulous holiday - thanks Kylie!
I was a complicated customer and would have been in trouble without you
Kelly was helpful, informative and delivered everything we asked for - quickly and efficiently. Will definitely book via Kelly again and have already recommended DialAFlight to friends and family.
I received an excellent service. Will use DialAFlightt again in the future. Thank you, Jordan.
Excellent service from my DialA Flight operator George, Very very helpful, would highly recommend using this company again.
Thank you Archie - thank you for your help!
Amazing service, Warren was so accommodating and made things so easy and simple! Much nicer talking to an actual person down the phone than struggling online with last minute adjustments!
Your service was good but Lufthansa is shocking and will never travel with them again. We lost a whole day due to delays.
As always Troy and his team sorted a brilliant holiday
We received excellent customer service from you from the 'get go'. We had a lovely holiday and all documents and itinerary were perfect. We will definitely be using your services in future as well as recommending you to our friends and family.
I will always book through you
My flight was cancelled because of those drones at Gatwick but you managed to get me another flight. I was very impressed with that and could not have done it myself.
I have used DialAFlight on a few occasions now. Your service is excellent and I have recommended you to others for future trips!
Otis is a great help not only in organising but following through as the holiday approaches
First time I have used you and the service was excellent! I'll certainly be using you for my travel. Lisa was fantastic guiding me through the process.
Many thanks for the excellent service from Jarvis and Darryl. We had a fabulous holiday in Mauritius and the app was invaluable.
Everything ran very smoothly, the team were very helpful and all went as planned
Marshall was a great help when booking our holiday to the Maldives and he was always a joy to talk to.
I will certainly go to DialAFlight again and have already suggested it to friends and colleagues. Very impressed with the service. Well done all of you
Glen was especially helpful, always replied very quickly to my emails and made the planning very easy
Thanks Frank. Another great holiday. I have already recommended friends.
Brilliant service from Ivor as always
Rumour has it that when the architect was commissioned to shape One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives, he said he wanted each guest to 'feel like a king'. He failed spectacularly. Because from the moment we set foot on the island, we felt like a god and goddess instead - we were in heaven.
After leaving Male's international airport, we were greeted by a band of merry men who promptly ushered us on to a luxury private yacht to take us to the resort. Feeling like Jay Z and Beyoncé, my husband Julian and I kicked back and pressed the start button on our honeymoon.
If first impressions were anything to go by, our marriage had just got off to the perfect start.
At the resort there were more warm and welcoming faces, before we meandered down the tiny, sandy 'roads' towards our beach villa in a golf buggy - cars have no business on this island.
Along the way, our personal concierge Gizem told us that staff at Reethi Rah outnumber guests by more than three to one - although you would never know it, as the level of privacy made us feel as if we were on a deserted paradise. But every request was fulfilled with discreet precision.
Of the eight villa types available, we chose the thatched beach villa with high ceilings, beautiful Balinese-style decor and a pool. But no matter where you end up laying your head, rest assured you will be in a den of luxury.
Behind our wooden front gate, there was a distinct and blissful feeling of isolation. There was a secluded patch of beach to call our own, with two palm trees harbouring a hammock.
We were spoiled with an unpacking service, a choice of pillows, essential oils menu, a bathroom with two massive sinks complete with his-and-hers soaps, and wooden shutters everywhere (which stayed open during our stay, as I didn't want to miss a single second of that spectacular view).
There was also a shower outside should guests want to recreate that Timotei advert for fun.
You could be forgiven for never leaving your villa, but that would be foolish. The 24-hour golf buggy service will happily whisk you to any of the countless amenities.
For sporty guests there's a state-of-the-art gym - instructors put me through my paces on an outdoor circuit.
In the yoga pavilion you can do aerial yoga (you are suspended in a low-hanging sling, so anyone who doesn't like being upside down should beware!) - there's also a full-size football pitch, and badminton and tennis courts.
There's also an art gallery, Taylor Taylor hair salon, Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio, barber shop and KidsOnly club. Meanwhile, the beach club was alive all day with a DJ playing the latest tunes.
Most afternoons, Julian and I loved grabbing an ice cream before working off the sugar rush on the massive water trampoline. Bouncing up and down on the giant inflatable, I felt like one of the contestants on Total Wipeout, the BBC series I used to co-present with Richard Hammond.
Sea excursions include luxury yacht big-game fishing, turtle adventures, sunrise fishing, reef snorkelling, sunset cruises and shark safaris.
There are four main restaurants. Reethi is beautifully constructed, with high ceilings and carved wooden pillars and doors, and serves contemporary Asian, French and Italian. This is also where the fabulous breakfast is served.
Another of our favourites was Tapasake, serving exquisite modern Japanese dishes with noodles and fish straight from the ocean outside your villa.
Fanditha, which means 'magical' in the Maldivian language Dhivehi, is aptly named - an Arabian Nights-inspired restaurant and bar with beautiful sunset views.
In keeping with the romantic setting, the spa has massive his-and-hers steam and sauna rooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a courtyard. It's a haven of serenity, set in a beautiful expanse of manicured trees and grass leading to the ocean. During your time here, you can practically feel the stress in your shoulders dissipate and your mind let go.
Reethi Rah is a stand-out experience because of its vision to create paradise and the sheer determination to sustain it.
Before I left home I was looking at a website about the Maldives and came across this quote: 'We travel not to escape life but so that life doesn't escape us.' After our experience in this magical destination, those sentiments more than ring a bell.
What we discovered on the Maldives was an escape that took you away not just from your nine-to-five routine but offered an entrée into another world - a life-affirming boost that lasted much, much longer than a suntan.
We can't wait to return.
