We had a few complications with our travel arrangements and had to cancel and rebook some flights. The staff were very patient and helpful. Thanks to all the staff and especially Connie.
Many thanks to Kieron for organising a fabulous holiday in a very short timescale
Amazing service and knowledge regarding the booking and very friendly staff.
Absolutely awesome experience
My only worry was BA strike. Overall customer service was excellent.
Noah was brilliant. Found me a better deal than I could find online and helped optimise days away. Brilliant fast service. I have already started recommending.
Above and beyond
I had the smoothest flight from Seychelles to the UKI. Amazing service and very approachable and friendly staff.
All your staff are very helpful and friendly
We had an amazing trip. Carter was so helpful and great at communicating. The trip was just as amazing as he said it would be! Thank you so much
Michelle came recommended to me by a work friend. We wanted something special as it was our honeymoon and she really helped us find the holiday of our dreams. Once we had agreed on the package, Michelle arranged everything. The process was so slick and straightforward I have already passed her details on to friends
Very efficient service as always.
The Constance resort in the Seychelles was amazing. Customer service, food and overall experience was first class
Excellent service from Amy and Sean, thank you
Dominic - great personal service, thank you
Thank you Gary and Roray for booking us an amazing honeymoon. We couldn't be happier with the service received.
Jacob, thanks as always for your help. Always end up changing things which you accommodate efficiently or asking questions as I did whilst away recently and you always respond very promptly.
I am very happy with DialAFlight
Great service as usual. Very happy
Harvey provides excellent service.
Fabulous service and communication as always
Good service. Fast and reliable communication. Enjoyable experience
Once again Damian and company did an excellent job in planning our trip with a very good price! In the age of the internet and so called super deals it is reassuring to know you are personally catered for
So easy to book a flight with DialAFlight and operators are very friendly.
Lucky that you have a 24 hours helpline that was able to help me out when I needed help. Very reassuring! DialAFlight is my favourite travel agency. Please keep up the good work.
Everything ran like clockwork and the hotels we stayed at simply stunning. Mauritius won our hearts!
Superb service, we will be using you again
DialAFlight gave us a fantastic service, very good communication and easy to deal with. It’s a shame Emirates didn’t do the same. Thanks again to Harvey
Received a call from Jay the night before my Mum's flight to make sure all was OK. Thought this was great customer service!
Steve and the team were amazing. The booking process was effortless and the information provided was exactly what we needed. We will definitely use Steve and DialAFlight again.
I know people who do yoga, of course, but I view them with deep suspicion. I have a sister who's a yoga instructor and of the opinion I would be a healthier, happier person if I saluted the sun every morning.
However, when presented with the prospect of a week in the Maldives, with a little light yoga thrown in, I readily agreed.
Not because it would make me a better person, but because I've been to the Maldives before. Turquoise sea, multi-coloured cocktails - that's what I call balm for the troubled mind.
A little downward dog seemed a small price to pay for all this.
THE PATH TO SERENITY
Baros is among 100 tiny-island resorts rising out of this glistening stretch of Indian Ocean.
It's a 20-minute speedboat ride from Male, the islands' capital - and it looked gorgeous the moment it hove into view, with dusty-white beaches. Once we've disembarked, there's a cocktail waiting for us (and a rolled damp flannel, obviously) in an open-air bar beneath a canopy of palm trees.
Camouflaged behind beautiful bougainvillea lie the 45 beach villas, each with a sea view and its own stretch of beach.
The island is tiny - 380 yards long and 331 yards wide - with sandy foot-printed paths winding from one end to the other.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We've booked one of the 30 'overwater' thatched villas on stilts at the far tip. As we tread the boards of our deck, our attention is drawn to shadows in the shallows - and we catch sight of a trio of 3ft-long reef sharks swimming lazily beneath our feet.
Baros has its own coral reef, and a private ocean teeming with stunning sea-life easily accessible a few feet from your sunbed.
The villa was big and luxurious. And beyond the infinity plunge pool lies your own private Indian Ocean. Unbelievably, 600 yards away, there was a couple standing in the middle of it. Or so it seemed.
We discovered we could lower ourselves from the ladder at the end of our deck and walk, the water no more than thigh-high, to a small sandbank where we could enjoy the view of the island from out-at-sea level.
As we enjoyed this idyllic experience, an unwelcome thought crept in. I had signed up for yoga every morning. At 7am.
But before that there's dinner - posh nosh at the Lighthouse restaurant or the simpler but equally delicious menu at Lime. (There's a third restaurant, Cayenne, for pizzas and light lunches.)
And also a massage. The Baros masseuses pummel like Olympians and I waft down to dinner in a blissful daze.
The food's fantastic and I float back to our room. How much more relaxed can a man get? I was about to find out.
AN EARLY START
At 6.30am we are padding down to meet Kumar, our yogi for the week. I dislike him on sight. He is small and lithe, glowing with good health, and looks like the kind of man who can flip himself forward and balance on the palm of his hand.
I do a downward dog, in a mongrel fashion. I salute the sun and I balance on one foot, cross over my elbows and bend and stretch and breathe.
And, to my astonishment, I love every moment of it.
Kumar is the kindest, most patient teacher I've ever met. He made each hour melt into mere minutes.
At dawn each day, I was rolling out of bed with something approaching enthusiasm. By day three I was volunteering for evening meditation.
Did yoga teach me to relax? I should say so. I've never slept better, though the snorkelling off Baros's coral reef - teeming with every colour of tropical fish, and, on one occasion, a giant sea turtle - would calm anyone.
THE FINAL CONCLUSION
Did it make me a nicer person? Well, I did plant some coral as part of the Baros conservation programme.
My time on this tiny tropical island involved eating, drinking, swimming, snorkelling and sleeping - and, obviously, meditating and yogitating.
There are no water sports here (hurrah!), and no underwater nightclubs.
What they do, they do brilliantly, simply, without fuss. Blissed-out bliss at its most blissful.
Om, as we yoga converts like to say. Shanti, shanti, shanti.
