Greetings from the Hotel Coco de Mer and Black Parrot Suites. Firstly it was wonderful seeing you in Sri Lanka – what a small world and trust you had a super time with the family and a fantastic holiday... It was incredible to see you and catch up. Thanks for the wonderful note – you were already gone off in the morning on your visits – but thanks for the lovely message – you left under the door – was so appreciated and so great seeing you. Hope the family had a blast as well.
we had a most amazing 30 days in sri lanka and just got back to the office yesterday – busy playing catch up. All the hotels we stayed at were exceptional and the country and experience was fantastic. Sri lanka has certainly won us over as well – and will definitely go back again one day. Amazed at the people – the culture the food and hospitality and their simplicity of life. Ulagalla was simply fantastic and Cape Weligama was out of this world – also loved the Kandy House and Tea Trails was incredible. In Yala we saw leopard, bear, tons of elephants and birds and an incredible experience as well. The Aman in Galle was so an un-Aman hotel – traditional stylish and fantastic service accommodation and food. The east coast – Trincolmalee and the Jungle Beach resort – more simple – but high standards and fantastic experience as well – tons of seafood – and fantastic service...
Could not fault any of the places we stayed at nor the experience in general – simply amazing. The Wallawwa – we loved as well.
Please send love and hugs to all in the office – and incredible seeing you in a foreign place – was great catching up...
Take care and a great big hug from us both.
With warm regards
Dominique and i want to thank you again for the amazing service and advice you gave us.
We had wonderful holiday at the Prince Maurice.
We couldn't expect a better quality of service, food, help in anyway.
The place was quiet and so warm with amazing staff. (like Akshada at the reception)
For me as pregnant it was heaven and for my 2 men (D and G ) it was paradise.
You were right with G it was the best place we could go and we will go back for sure.
They treated us like kings and made everything to please us
So again, Lydia we can't be more happy to have you in our life helping to have perfect breaks and holidays
Please say thanks to Andrew for his time and help
Best warm regards
Re-entry has been tough after such an idyllic holiday, I must say. It was just what I needed and Coco Bodu Hithi was excellent, thanks so much for recommending it to me and I would not hesitate to recommend both it and you to friends. The facilities were beautiful and the staff was fantastic, I was very impressed with how well things were run there. I could see some solo travellers not loving it as it was 100% pairs other than me, though I did not mind. Depends on the person. The only small negative was the cost of food and drinks. I was prepared going in, having read enough, but it was still quite shocking so some might not like that. But really, 100% worth it, in my mind. I've not been this rested and relaxed in quite some time.
I would also say I was impressed with Oman Air- very good service and extremely pleasant staff (though just to note, my return flight from Muscat was not at the time on the itinerary you provided, it was a bit over an hour later so I was briefly confused but it all worked just fine).
Just to say thanks for organising our Thai holiday, we had a wonderful time.
We were very happy with Thai Airways First Class- the service and quality was superb.
We would however note that on the current 747-400 LHR-BKK flights, Business Class has old-style seats rather than lie-flat beds (more like premium economy / World-Traveller Plus) and as such customers might be disappointed in that cabin. We understand that the 747s may be replaced by the A380, with the current two daily flights combined into a single flight this summer.
We would very happily recommend the Anantara Golden Triangle resort, guests staying more than 3-4 days might want to plan trips into neighbouring Myanmar or Laos.
We would also happily recommend Soneva Kiri, although it is a different experience to Soneva Fushi. The main difference is that at S.K you need to drive to the beach, requiring a conscious effort, whereas on S.F you simply walk a few metres onto the beach and into the sea…

We had a wonderful time at the Constance Moofushi - it was a truly memorable holiday and the level of service was excellent. So much so, we are already plotting another holiday and debating whether it might be nice to visit another Constance hotel elsewhere in the world.
So Atmosphere Kanifushi…
We would definitely recommend Atmosphere and the All Inclusive concept which as you know, we were a little sceptical about prior to our visit. The villa was lovely, very simple furnishings and décor, great aircon, gorgeous bathroom and probably the best shower we’ve ever had in the Maldives.
We found all the food and drink on the island to be of a really high quality (and quantity!). Service in both the bars and restaurants could be a little slow at times and they were slow to replenish drinks (unless we were with Abilash and then they were remarkably speedy!) but we were hugely impressed with the extensive included wine list as we hadn’t expected it to be as good and comprehensive as it was.
Availability of all the island facilities - restaurant reservations, spa treatments, diving trips etc was excellent and we never struggled to do anything we wanted at the time we wanted
So all in all – a great recommendation from you, as ever!! And a place we would recommend to others wanting a peaceful place with large contemporary beach villas and a fixed price system for a high quality product

Reef Villas in Sri Lanka - “One of the best”
It is inevitable that travellers make comparisons and Reef stands comparison with our favourite hotels. Reef stands for us with Le Manoir aux Quat' Saison for individual flair and with Oberoi Hotels for service.
Reef is a unique blend in a small luxury hotel and if you have the chance stay. The legion of excellent reviews don't lie, this is one of the very best
Hotel - Maalifushi by COMO, Maldives
Many thanks for arranging yet another successful family holiday to the Maldives.
This was a perfect choice, we absolutely love it!
The water villas are fabulous, the staff are all lovely and really seem to care that we are enjoying our stay (the only other place where the staff seemed as caring was Naladhu and you know how much I loved that island!)
The food is sensational, like eating at a three star Michelin restaurant every night!!!
You have such an in depth knowledge of the Islands and we really appreciate that you always take care to understand exactly what we are looking for in a holiday.
Your prices are very competitive and most importantly you very politely tolerate me asking a million questions before I finally make a decision!
Thanks to you we now have that Incurable disease known as Maldiveitis and without a doubt we will be back again!
Merry Christmas from the Maldives

Hotel - Constance Le Prince Maurice, Mauritius - Celebratory Holiday
Thank you so much for my birthday cake - it was a lovely surprise!
Our holiday was one of the best! I can really recommend Le Prince Maurice. The food and the service were excellent and "Our Little Cottage" was a joy
Thank you again

Honeymoon at Cocoa Island Maldives
Thank you so much for helping organize a wonderful honeymoon in Maldives. We really loved Cocoa Island. From the staff to the food and the ambience to the reef, everything was just right and just magical. I think that next time we will try the combination deal with Maalifushi.
