We had the idea to take a cruise on the Dhoni Stella while listening to our friends tell us about their wonderful trip.
The first email contacts with Jerome were very rewarding with a response to our practical questions. It was reassuring to have a French guy who knows the Maldives at his fingertips to put together a tailor-made program, since this was our first trip to this country.
The crew of the boat was very professional, adapting the activities according to the weather, so that we took advantage of the weather.
With our 2 children, this trip is memorable with snorkeling tailored to that we see everything: turtles, manta rays, schools of fish, sharks (very nice, not even afraid), dolphins (on the surface) … We followed a whale shark for 45 minutes, they were there just for us, thank you Nasru for the tracking. We have always been alone at anchor in corners that the captain likes. We caught all the fish that Kumar (Super Chef) cooked us as well in sashimi as cooked to perfection. And I do not tell you the evening on a desert island, just for us …. to redo as soon as possible. Thanks to all the team and good luck!
Many thanks to Jerome who took his time for the many questions we had.
The stay was just perfect with a crew at the top. The key word on the reviews of Maldivian stays is often “dream” is good for this stay the word does not exist.
This is our third visit to the Maldives and we do not plan to leave otherwise than with this formula.
This is the first time I comment on a stay on the internet but with an experience like this and a professionalism like this, we can only sign!
