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
Going back to a place you have really enjoyed can be a bit of a risk. Can you recreate those happy memories?
We went to the Maldives four years ago and loved it. This time we returned over Christmas.
This was my first 'hot' Christmas. My wife Storm is from Australia, so when she was growing up, December 25 was a day spent on the beach or playing cricket on the lawn.
I, meanwhile, grew up in Ireland, so I'm used to wet, cold and damp days. If we were really lucky, we had snow.
FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
As we were taking four children - my three older ones, Jack, 18, Missy, 16, and Ali, 12, and our baby Cooper, who was born last April - I was a little anxious. How would a non-traditional Christmas in the sun appeal to them? But from the moment we arrived at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, they loved it. We were delighted to discover we even had a Christmas tree in our room - with gifts underneath.
It was the children's first trip to the Maldives, and the journey is a thrill in itself. After arriving in the capital Male, we took the seaplane for the half-hour flight to Kihavah Huravalhi. We flew over glorious desert islands before landing on a beautiful turquoise lagoon.
As we stepped on to pristine white sand, the staff were waiting, singing welcome songs, clapping and beating drums - it was magical. Garlands were hung around our necks and we were handed glasses of fruit punch. We suddenly felt very cosseted.
Next came the excitement of being taken to our villa - an over-water one which was fantastic. In the bathroom there was a glass floor, which made for an interesting, if slightly unnerving, experience.
On the way to the villa we could see uninhabited islands surrounded by reefs which we were told are home to turtles, eels and beautiful coral formations. Anantara forms part of the Baa Atoll, with baby sharks, stingrays and every fish you can imagine. It meant the snorkelling was exceptional.
We needn't have worried about the children having a good time - the staff worked tirelessly to make certain everyone was happy.
LIKE A DREAM
The food was phenomenal, the service extraordinary, the weather brilliant, the sea perfect. We were floating on air.
And any anxieties about Christmas were swept away when Father Christmas arrived on a banana-boat!
At Anantara they take dining to new levels. At Sea, an underwater restaurant, you dine inside a tank and the fish are outside looking in at you.
One of its attractions is the world's first underwater wine cellar. Wine with depth, you might say. But when we were in Sea, we couldn't bring ourselves to order the fish - in the circumstances it seemed wrong!
We liked Fire, a Japanese teppanyaki restaurant, while Salt, an Asian fusion restaurant, was also superb. All the children loved the food. The new Sky Bar, with its own DJ, was a very cool place and it features an observatory. We could have sat there all night looking through the telescope at the stars.
The children were never bored. There was something going on all the time and lots of other children were there, so they were never short of people to hook up with for a game of beach volleyball, for example.
One day we all went on a boat trip which allowed us to snorkel out on the reef - we were right among the turtles.
In the evenings, we loved the open-air cinema, watching movies under the stars.
The resort also had a good kids' club - Ali had a brilliant time making sushi.
In the evenings, there was a pool party with a DJ, and on New Year's Eve there was a band and fireworks. Did I succumb to the temptation of performing on New Year's Eve? Of course I did - I can't help myself. I sang my hit When You Say Nothing At All, which seemed to go down well.
When I was growing up in Ireland, we never left the country - Killarney was as good as it got for me. Every summer, we'd go for a couple of weeks to a guesthouse. We had a great time -but it's still quite a leap from Killarney to the Maldives!
