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.
Excellent customer service from Alan.
Kieran was fantastic as always. Everything went smoothly with all six flights and hotel was more than we expected. Absolutely stunning.
Troy is fab!
Philip is superb. Shows some exceptional diligence that makes you feel calm when spending a lot of money!
As always. Brilliant service
Thanks for a great service. Extremely helpful and polite. You sound and are a wonderful team
This lived up to all Otis recommendations. A great experience with a truly laid back atmosphere and a great chill out
As always Darryll was brilliant. I have used his services for years and will continue to for many more.
Amazing personalised service from start to finish. Andrew looked after every issue and the holiday was planned to perfection!
Brilliant service from Carla, as always. Everything was organised like a dream - thank you. We will be back!
Mason was absolutely superb and went above and beyond what I would expect from a travel agent, and when he wasn't around anyone else I spoke to was always so helpful.
Kept us informed of any changes along the way
As usual, a great service.
Ralph and Dennis in his absence couldn’t be more helpful
The service with DialaFlight is second to none. I asked for a Maldives holiday which was what I had planned to take from my retirement money from work. After speaking to Jordan, he recommended a different island to meet my needs. He got a beach bungalow for us within budget and it was just perfect. He contacted us before we went to ensure everything went well and answered some last minute questions. He is excellent and very caring in his job and I wouldn't hesitate to book either flights or full package with DialAFlight again. This company is amazing and competitive with prices.
An earthly paradise was how boatswain Thomas Jones described the Seychelles when, in 1609, the British merchant ship Ascension was separated from its fleet by a storm and dropped anchor in Mahé.
And ship's agent John Jourdain, who was sent out by the East India Company, wrote in the first known description of the islands: 'It is a very good refreshing place for wood, water, coker nuts, fish and fowle, without any fear or danger ...'
Some 400 years later, the same can still be said. It boasts some of the world's best beaches and most diverse wildlife.
The hotels are wonderful, but these islands never forget that the top selling point is still the fresh, natural splendour that first caught Thomas Jones's eye
It is all about the destination here, says Edouard Grosmangin - even though, as manager of the new Six Senses Zil Pasyon resort, he is justly proud of his hotel.
This ethos of cherishing nature is echoed everywhere on the heavily-forested Félicité Island, where Six Senses opened recently. Its 30 villas slope towards the blue ocean, perfectly poised to catch the sunrise.
The beaches have just a few hammocks swinging lazily in the breeze - and of course, perhaps a hawksbill turtle or two coming to lay their eggs.
The hotel doesn't compete with nature, rather it allows you to stare at the ripe mangoes and emerald green lizards from your bathtub or bed.
There are no room service charges (try the coconut pancakes with lime syrup and mango compote at breakfast). It is also within easy reach of other islands, which you can explore.
Twenty minutes away is Praslin, the second largest island in the archipelago, where the Unesco World Heritage Site of Vallée de Mai was mistaken for the Garden of Eden by British General Charles Gordon in 1881. He thought the suggestive seed of the Coco de Mer palm, the largest seed in the world, must be the forbidden fruit.
Praslin is also famed for its soft white sand. Anse Lazio, on the island's north edge, is considered by many to be the best beach in world.
Admire it from a seat at restaurant Bonbon Plume, where under thatched umbrellas you can eat octopus curry.
A MINI CYLCE TOUR
On another day, we bicycled around La Digue, a slow-paced island opposite Félicité, where not long ago the only mode of transport was ox cart.
We passed vanilla plantations and takamaka trees (also the name of the local rum) and swam off the beach of Anse Source d'Argent. The water is translucent and two dogs chased large fish in the shallows. Needless to say, this quarry is too nimble for their clumsy paws. Along the shoreline, giant granite boulders add structural beauty.
You can kayak across the ocean to the Île Cocos, part of the Marine National Park, where snorkelling reveals powder blue surgeonfish, Moorish idols, parrotfish and the striking oriental sweetlips, with black and yellow stripes and dots that could grace a catwalk.
Other islands in the archipelago include North Island, where William and Kate honeymooned, and Frégate, the luxury eco-resort where celebrities arrive by helicopter.
There are plenty of fish to be spotted on the corals around Félicité, but it's also worth heading inland to see the trees.
TAKING CARE OF WILDLIFE
South African Steve Hill, the resident permaculturist, who eradicated rats and introduced tortoises to the island, has been here for nearly nine years.
He has supervised the removal, across hundreds of acres, of the coco plum, which strangled many native species. In its place he planted indigenous trees and shrubs to encourage birds such as the Seychelles white-eye and fody. As we walk around avocado and mango trees, stop under the shade of the takamaka — and look at the fruit of the bigarade — Steve gives his vision for the island's future.
Commitment to preservation comes from the top, and is on the school curriculum. Steve believes Félicité can be the Seychelles' bio-diversity hotspot. Here, nature is the star of the show.
