Lee and the team very helpful and proactive. I knew I’d be in good hands if I got into a pickle overseas.
In the face of adversity Ryan smooths out all the creases and we don’t go elsewhere now down to that relationship. Thank you.
Thanks to Libby, Raphael and Julian for going above and beyond, sending us everything we needed and even changing last minute flights.
Aidan was brilliant
Fantastic service! Always go above and beyond to ensure you get your perfect holiday for a great price! You are my go to travel agents. Thank you!
Gary was great as always, he helped us through the refund process on a holiday we booked just before Lockdown. He was then super proactive in helping us find an alternative trip, double-checking cancellation policies and giving us peace of mind.
Great communication with Teddy - every time!
Delighted with service from main contacts especially Helen and Michael
Fantastic experience and will be using you for our next trip!
Yet another great holiday to the Maldives organised by Rory. Great company to arrange your holiday, great personal service as not many companies do nowadays? Hopefully organising another trip for Xmas 2021 to Mauritius.
I am thankful more than ever to Gary for his amazing attentive service. He expertly navigated me through the covid restrictions and last minute change of hotel due to unforeseen circumstances. I am also very happy at the service he has provided to every one of my referrals who have come back to me so thankful for the introduction. Keep up the great work Gary. Look forward to the next booking
Fantastic communication from start to finish. Personalised service. With the added stress of the second lockdown in November, Miles and his team did a great job reorganising the flights and hotel.
Josh was extremely efficient and helpful especially because we were stranded out of the UK because of the Covid-19. Josh arranged new flights and was contactable 7 days a week.
During a difficult time abroad with the development of the Coronavirus, your assistance and reassurance was greatly appreciated.
Amy and Shane provided excellent customer service. Contacted me in Mauritius and ensured I was able to get back home before airport shut down. They were brilliant. Thank you both.
As always, excellent service
Excellent help, quick with flights - and they have been amazing considering what the country is going through
Thanks Troy for getting us home. We will always come to you for our travel needs
My whole experience of using DialAFlight has gone way above expectations. Brody has been fantastic, but also praise to everyone else who we spoke to during our trip to Mauritius. Our flights had to be changed and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. Whilst others in the hotel struggled we got a flight, got the seats we wanted, didn’t have to pay any extra - it was all completely seamless. Your customer care is some of the best I have ever experienced. We’ve booked with other operators and booked direct but won’t be going back. I’ve recommended your services to every person who has mentioned flights.
Great to speak to a human and not a robot.
Fabulous trip, everything went like clockwork as usual from Neil and his team
Thanks to Finn for arranging everything as promised
Jim comes up with the best suggestions every time.
Would have been nice to know Jan to Mar is the cyclone/rainy season
Eric was outstanding
Gino was great and looked after us well,
A big thank you to Michelle
Great service and help from Barry. Nothing was a bother and he sorted everything we needed. Great service
Another great holiday organised by Ted Millerick. I enjoy being greeted at varying locations for transfers etc. Often when tired from travelling it’s great to have that continuity. The recommended hotel in the Maldives was great. My daughter has now booked her 3 week honeymoon through Ted and I will be using you again in the future. Thanks for a well organised holiday.
Would definitely book with DialAFlight again. Big thanks to Chris Coulter.
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!
