Over the moon with the experience from start to finish. We will definitely use you guys again.
100% perfect! Well done
Check in reminder for return flight would have been helpful but other than that DialAFlight delivered the goods yet again. Have been using them for over 10 years and their calm, professional and efficient service is always so much appreciated. A special thanks to Gino on this trip. It went like a dream in spite of some irritating last minute changes made by me.
Ethan Fell was first class. Everything went smoothly
Advance advice on Maldives entry requirements and forms would have been helpful.
We have dealt with Chris Coulter for more than 20 years and he always strives to provide the best possible service and advice.
Top marks to Neil and his team again, wonderful trip.

Another successful holiday booked by Ryan, many thanks.
Ryan was absolutely excellent and we had a trip of a lifetime!
Always provide a fantastic service. We have booked with Kylie for years, she s a real credit to the company!
We had an amazing holiday and everything was organised perfectly. The only minor thing was we weren't advised if we were booked as standard all inclusive or premium all inclusive at our first hotel and thought a sunset cruise was included but it wasn't.
Yet again Reece did a fantastic job. We had a fabulous holiday.
Informative, knowledgeable and helpful, prepared to invest time to support making choices. Nothing too much trouble. Pricing competitive. Responsive to queries and keen to deliver satisfaction.
We will definitely use you for our next holiday

With glorious beaches, superb diving and all-year sunshine, this nation of 1,000 coral islands and 26 ring-shaped atolls in the Indian Ocean is a rare beauty. There are so many amazing and varied resorts to choose from all with their own unique features.
Kuredu Resort & Spa This tropical island resort is a hideaway near the capital, a short transfer by seaplane. Take your pick from honeymoon suites, water villas and beach bungalows at this pleasant, quiet getaway. And there are five restaurants from which to choose.
Kurumba This is a lovely little island resort near the capital. It's particularly good for energetic guests, offering tennis courts, a gym, snorkelling and a dive centre. The restaurants serve Japanese, Thai, Italian and Middle Eastern dishes.
Reethi Faru Resort On Raa Atoll, this is an ideal destination for families and foodies. You can pick up Maldivian cooking tips at the open-air grill. The resort opened last November and comprises a series of smart villas, a spa, a games room and a watersports centre.
Reethi Beach Resort Activities galore await at this resort on Baa Atoll. It has a PADI-registered dive centre, watersports centre, floodlit tennis courts, squash courts, badminton courts and a gym. So it suits the sporty. You stay in secluded villas. Supermodel Cara Delevingne spent a week on the island in 2016 with dozens of her friends and family.
Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu Resort A romantic highlight at this hotel on Baa Atoll is the option of a candlelit Maldivian meal in the resort's kitchen-garden. Spicy dishes are served amid basil and rosemary plants. Afterwards, enjoy a cocktail on the beach before retiring to your thatched villa.
Makunudu Island Resort Located on North Male Atoll, this destination offers night fishing with the locals and your catch will be cooked to perfection in the hotel kitchens. A full range of watersports such as surfing and sailing is available too. This little resort has 36 extremely comfortable thatched bungalows.
Kandima Resort You can dance the night away at the Beach Club bar and enjoy late-night cocktails in cabanas while listening to DJs spinning 'party tunes' at this hip new resort on Dhaalu Atoll. It has 266 colourful studios and villas. And lively as it is, it suits families as well.
You & Me by Cocoon Underwater dining is a fabulous attraction at this new adults-only island resort on Raa Atoll. Watch the fish glide by as you eat. Drink champagne at the Veuve Clicquot bar and try a treatment at the Elizabeth Arden spa. Rooms have a 'rustic chic' look.
Shangri-La Villingili There's only?one complete golf course, a nine-holer, in the Maldives and it's to be found at this resort on Addu Atoll in the far south. Enjoy golf by the equator. Accommodation is in swish villas and there's also a great spa. Supermodel Elle Macpherson spent a week at the hotel in 2016 with her two sons.
Faarfuushi Maldives This is a brand new resort on Raa Atoll that's already a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World Group. Infinity pools lead to 'relaxation pavilions' and a spa with a hydro pool.
Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas The sky's the limit at this resort on Baa Atoll - it's possible to see the stars of both the northern and southern hemispheres - as well as the rings of Saturn - from the hotel's observatory. The resort's plush villas come with plunge pools.
One&Only Reethi Rah Wild turtles lay eggs on the beaches at this resort, and their nests are carefully protected by marine biologists. Tennis, snorkelling and wakeboarding are all available. The resort, with elegantly-furnished villas, is popular among celebrities including the Beckhams and Tom Cruise.
Velaa Private Island In the north of the Maldives on Noonu Atoll, this is one of the most exclusive resorts. Villas have mahogany panel walls, teak furniture, private pools in secluded gardens and dedicated butlers.
Cheval Blanc Randheli Each of the 46 villas at this resort, also on Noonu Atoll, have a 12.5-metre infinity pool. Private butlers, a spa and a tennis island are also features. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent a week here in 2014.
