COCOON MALDIVES INTRODUCES A NEW CONCEPT OF HOSPITALITYRead more
The Maldives doesn't have its own airline, instead it has to reply on its neighbouring countries to provides a service to these tiny island. Dubai and the Maldives, Abu Dhabi and the Maldives both work from the UK as does Sri Lanka and the Maldives - a particular favorite of mine. It isn't particularly close to anywhere, its in the middle of the Indian oceanso creating a multicentre holiday in the Maldives and Beyond can work very well.Read more
An amassing holiday exploring the highlights of Singapore and Borneo coupled with a relaxing beach holiday in the MaldivesRead more
The Maldives consists of a myriad of islands, about a hundred of which are inhabited. These specks of emerald green enveloped by dazzling turquoise waters are scattered like beads in the Indian ocean; white powdery beaches, tall palms trees, lush vegetation, crystal clear waters, shades of turquoise blend flawlessly with deeper hues of blue; pristine coral reefs and some of the most incredible underwater life on our planet.Read more
For Easter 2014 - as in past years Suzan & Sarah decided to escape to the Maldives for the Easter Holidays. We arranged a complete ATOL package with flights on Sri Lankan Airlines and 10 nights at their favorite island "Biyadoo" and kindly sent this feedback
Thank you for the welcome home. We had another fabulous holiday in Biyadoo and met up with people we met last year (they have been hooked too) and met other lovely people who shared our passion for Biyadoo and scuba diving. We are well rested but the holiday went far too fast.
Biyadoo have obviously been doing some small improvements around the island and things looked a little fresher than last time. (Well I thought so - Sarah says it is very subtle!) The gardens also looked lovely with some more plants. The food was consistent with plenty of choice, but once again some improvements such as the introduction of pizza bread (which was lovely) and more variety in their salad selection, has been made.
They have got rid of the jet skis that appeared last year and this was better too as they were far too noisy and a danger to people and the reef (in my opinion!)
The dive school offered the usual dive sites and the system and instructors offered the standards we have encountered on previous trips. They have introduced the occasional 2 tank dives on the morning boat and this gave us more opportunity to explore the reefs but still allowing us plenty of time to sunbathe in the afternoons.
The staff were friendly and received us like old friends - they still remember we like a diet coke after our morning dive!
Thanks again to you and Don for booking us our much needed break to what we think is still a gem of an Island.
