Trip to MaldivesExceptionally well planned Maldives trip... Aditya Grand Vacations-- We are very satisfied with the travel agency we booked for our first Maldives trip. Rishabh was very approachable throughout the trip planning phase. Whenever we required his support, he was just a call/msg away! Resort-- Resort "Cocoon Maldives" was the best option given to us and we didn't regret our stay in this resort for once. The food options were plenty(every day different cuisine), even for Vegetarians it's a good choice. Daily different entertainment activities, plenty of drinks options and very friendly staff. Sea plane-- beautiful views, a very different and must have experience. Water sports-- daily 30min kayaking and paddleboats offered by resort were worth exploring. We really enjoyed our stay in Maldives, and we totally recommend Aditya Grand Vacations for Maldives-trips.
