Overall Impressions

The most special honeymoon we could have ever asked for!

Countries Visited

United Arab Emirates

Dubai was the most luxurious, clean and safe city with ultramodern architecture. We packed a lot of tourism into 3 days including: the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall, the Dubai Fountains, the Burj Al Arab, Atlantis, the Miracle Gardens, the Gold Souk, and the Dubai Marina. We even went on a Desert Safari with dune buggies and camels. We easily could have spent several more days exploring the city and the thousands of amazing restaurants! Overall, it was an amazing experience that satisfied the big city portion of our honeymoon.

Maldives

Absolute paradise! Crystal clear water with white sand beaches! An overwater villa with a plunge pool that looks directly out into knee deep ocean water. 80 degrees F and sunny for a week straight. Butler type service with Michelin starred chefs and a fantastic variety of food. Need I say more?!

Accommodation Visited

The Palace Downtown Dubai

The Palace Downtown was the perfect hotel! Within walking distance to the Dubai Mall and hundreds of restaurants, it was the optimal location. We had a balcony with a view of the Dubai Fountains and the Burj Khalifaâ? Quite possibly the best view in the city! The concierge service, valet service and wait staff at the morning buffet were all amazing. The rooms were super clean and modern with slight Arabian accents. Overall, awesome hotel!

Constance Halaveli

Constance Halaveli was heaven on earth. From the moment we stepped off the seaplane onto the island resort, we were treated like royalty. We were provided drinks and a tour of the whole island almost immediately, by golf cart of course. The island contains a dive and water sports shop, a full spa, a tennis court, a gym, 3 restaurants and several bars. The water villas with plunge pools are the perfect balance between rustic and modern. They also have beach villas with pools if you'd prefer. The service from the waiters, front desk, cleaning staff, dive shop and the spa was the best I've ever had. They truly care about their guests. The food at the buffet and the 2 a la carte restaurants was delicious. The wine list contained over 2,000 selections and the sommeliers know EVERY single bottle. Constance Halaveli is the epitome of 5 star luxury and I can't wait to go back!

Staff Review

Claire was the most responsive, kind and knowledgeable travel agent I have ever worked with. Due to COVID, we postponed our honeymoon twice and she made it happen smoothly with no complaints. When we finally got to go, we had the most amazing honeymoon anyone could ever ask for. Traveling half way across the world from the US to Dubai and the Maldives during a pandemic, we were slightly nervous but Claire eased all of our concerns. She informed us of every COVID regulation and restriction so we were fully prepared for anything. Claire thought of every detail throughout the entire 2 week vacation. The Palace Downtown Dubai and Constance Halaveli in the Maldives were the epitome of 5 star luxury. Emirates was by far, the best airline I've ever flown. We have already recommended Claire to everyone we know and all of our friends and family are dying to visit Dubai and the Maldives. Thank you so much for an experience we'll never forget! You made a dream come true!
