Trip to MaldivesIt was a dream come true. Travel triangle is a must for all travel be it honeymoon be it family trip. Amazing clear beach
Trip to MauritiusStay in Maldives was great. But we didn't get birthday celebration benefit or evening transfer to water Villa which was mentioned in itinerary. We had a lot of tension around visa processing as the concerned team within travel Triangle didn't have much clue finally we had to directly contact the 3rd party udan to get our visa done and we got our passports just 1 day before our journey start . Onward flights were good as it allowed 30kg per person. And we carried around that much luggage , but return flights booked allowed only15kg per person and this was not informed prior which made us to leave some of our valuable items there. This caused great inconvenience. We are not happy with overall service as this was meant to be a leisure trip but we had to go through many tensions during our visa processing and in airport due to luggage limitation. stay in paradise resort
Trip to MaldivesThe stay, hotel and package provided were fantastic. We had a wonderful holiday. Thank you. Though our check in was 3, since we reached early they gave us the room by 12.30 which is much appreciated.
Trip to MaldivesOne of the best trip I had and amazing experience and wonderful memories I have now. Thanks team for planning our trip. Best hotel, best service, amazing delicious food, scenic location.
Trip to MaldivesNo doubt services of travel agent is wonderful in this regard. I am always susceptible about prices though but apart from this I would say it's near about worth it. we can say it's a bit pricy than worth. But our overall experience was great. We enjoyed our part. Spa and snorkelling was great. The water villa were good. And view was great. Onyl thing we hated was distance in resort and walking.
Trip to MaldivesI am happy that we chose Kesia holidays to plan our trip. Thanks to Kesia Holidays for giving us a great deal. And specially kudos to AMIT SIVARAMAN for putting extra efforts to make our trip great. He was proactive in suggestions and gave many tips and suggestions which helped us to take a better decision.Also all our queries and doubts were resolved immediately and satisfactorily. The hotel we stayed at was kudafushi resort and spa, which is one of the best resorts to stay in maldives, and NO Other Travel company was able to match up that deal. Thanks Kesia holidays,you delivered everything what you promised.Everything was well managed, and our trip became effortless and enjoyable.
Trip to MaldivesBooking through travel traingle was a good decision .It was a very smooth trip without any major hiccups ..only one thing which disappointed us was that the resort did not entertain our request of 6th wedding anniversary arrangements with a cake and wine bottle ; which was committed by youngistan travels to us as a part of this deal ( as an exception) .Paradise resort denied the request stating they provide these arrangements only for 25th or 50th wedding anniversaries.Other than this all the arrangements were flawless
Trip to MaldivesExcellent Services by Dream casters travel, Superb trip adviser, Excellent support by Mr Gaurav. Supporting team throughout the journey from planning to execution.
Trip to MaldivesHi All, I regret for choosing Travel Triangle. I booked for Maldives through an agent know as 'I Need Trip'. Before I book the trip, there was a follow up on me and I found it good deal so went ahead and booked it. After Booking, I had to follow up with them multiple times for my payment as I paid in 3 installments, sometimes couldn't even reach the agent. It was my Honeymoon trip and there is a spl request for honeymooners, which the agent said ok ok but they haven't even informed the Resort management nor in the voucher. When I saw the voucher, spl request section was left blank. I enquired with the agent, but they told don't worry they have informed Resort. Also worst mistake they can ever make is, I have shared my flights details with them but still they haven't updates with the latest flight to the Resort and the Resort management kept calling and disturbing us in the early morning 3 o clk as our flight was supposed to be 8 o clk but we changed the itinerary and flight and updated the agent.It was the duty of agent to update Resort. Next time, I won't choose TT
Trip to MaldivesThere was a communication gap between Adaaran Island and youngistan team. we landed to male from Bangalore when we arrived to male the reservation team at counter said that the youngistan traveler didn't confirm the booking so Island team made us to wait for 2 hours then I called Youngistan team and but no response from Ashu and office number but later got it booking confirmed from other person. irresponsible people in the Youngistan team. Please try to improve the service. Adaaran Select meeduparan Island is awesome place and worth staying in the beach villa. great trip!
