Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to the Maldives.

Typically for the Maldives we will use British Airways for direct flights to the Maldives between November and March.

Sri Lankan Airlines is also a great option for flights to the Maldives, especially of course if combining the Maldives with a Sri Lanka tour.

The flying time for direct flights is around 10 hours, making the Maldives a little shorter flying time than going to South East Asia.

We also commonly use Emirates via Dubai, Qatar Airways via Doha and Etihad via Abu Dhabi. These all allow stopover options in the Arabian Gulf to create a multi-centre holiday.

Regional connections from across the UK are available.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of resorts in the Maldives, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique & luxury hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller luxury hotels where we think these will be suitable.

We understand that choosing a resort in the Maldives can be a bit bewildering, especially as they all look so similar!

That's where our expertise can help - it's always useful to speak to someone who's been to lots of different islands in the Maldives.

Do I need a visa for the Maldives?

If you're travelling on British Passports, no visa is required for stays of up to a month.

Please double check before travel however as visa requirements are subject to change at any time.

How long have you been organising holidays to the Maldives?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to the Maldives since 2009.

We use a very reliable local partner in the Maldives for transfers and to assist our clients in the Maldives. They are a family owned company who are one of the most established and respected local travel companies.

We keep up to date with developments in the Maldives with regular visits and through our local contacts.

When is the best time to visit the Maldives?

The driest time of year to visit the Maldives is normally between November and March. This is high season in the Maldives and you can expect dry and settled conditions most of the time.

What board basis should I choose in the Maldives?

You'll find there is a wide range of options in the Maldives, from b&b, Half and Full Board, All Inclusive and variations on All Inclusive options.

Because of the isolated location, dining in the Maldives is expensive by almost any standard. Bear this in mind when comparing meal options.

How do I get to my resort in the Maldives?

Some resorts in the Maldives can be reached by speedboat from Male. This makes for a convenient and easy transfer. You'll be met at the airport on arrival and taken on foot the short distance to your boat transfer.

Seaplane transfers in the Maldives are used for islands further afield. These are usually in 18-seater De Havilland Twin Otters which fly in daylight hours only, departing from the seaplane port next to the International Airport.

Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?

All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you.

You will have your own private car and chauffeur-guide on excursions.

Sri Lanka differs from many other destinations in this respect - the driver doubles as the guide.

What are the departure dates?

Let us know your preferred dates of travel and we will find the best and most suitable flights to fit your itinerary.

As this is a private tour, there are no set departure dates.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to Sri Lanka.

Typically for Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan Airlines, British Airways and Emirates are the airlines we most often use.

However, just let us know your preferred airline if you have one. We can organise flights from any regional destination in the UK.

Sri Lankan Airlines and British Airways fly directly to Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan Airlines and Emirates are both great options for combining Sri Lanka with the Maldives.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of hotels in Sri Lanka, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.

We keep on top of hotel developments in Sri Lanka through our own inspection trips and also through the expertise of our local partners. We also keep tabs on feedback online and from our customers.

Sri Lanka has a really great choice of boutique hotels and some excellent luxury hotels.

Do you cater for Solo Travellers & Families?

Yes, we have many solo travellers, and Sri Lanka is generally a safe, friendly and welcoming destination for those travelling alone.

Sri Lanka is very well suited for families of all ages and we can tailor something specifically to fit your family's needs.

This particular Sri Lanka Highlights itinerary can be tailored for families. Children of all ages tend to love Sri Lanka for the wildlife, jungle and activities such as cycling around the temples.

How long have you been organising holidays to Sri Lanka?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to Sri Lanka for over 10 years.

Our team has a wealth of combined experience in the industry and our Director has been involved in organising holidays to Sri Lanka since the early 1990's.

Our partners on the ground in Sri Lanka have over 20 years experience in operating there.

They understand the country inside out and have a strong infrastructure of staff, guides and vehicles.

We've had the same partnership in Sri Lanka since 2010.

What destinations can be combined with Sri Lanka?

A holiday to Sri Lanka is often combined with a beach holiday in the Maldives. It's really the perfect combination of culture, sights, wildlife and some of the best beaches in the world.

A stopover in Dubai or Abu Dhabi is a very popular option for Sri Lanka holidays - it makes a great contrast.

Sri Lanka is also sometimes combined with South East Asia or with a journey around India.

Should our clients need any assistance during a trip to Sri Lanka, we always have at least one of our own staff on a similar time zone, and we're open 7 days a week in Saigon.

Of course our local partners are always there to assist 24-7.
