returned from a fantastic holiday on
for organising our trip which ran like clockwork. We are seasoned travellers.
In the last two years we have had no end of problems with the travel agents we
used to get to Borneo and

We have been back for over a week now and the holiday seems like such a long time ago.....
but what fabulous memories we have of our trip.
All the travel arrangements went like clockwork no hold-ups or hiccups and with all seating arrangements had been booked prior to our arrival, so we where all sat together on each flight. Thank you and a very nice touch Nikola.
Every dive site we asked to go to they took us to the next day. Any meals we asked them to prepare they made the next day (I'm afraid to say I asked for a chip butty, Mike and Val asked for nasi goreng), nothing was too much trouble. Any problems we had with our own dive equipment we took, they fixed.
The dive guide (Dolfie) was the same one throughout the holiday so he got familiar with how competent we were as divers, what we liked to see, how much air we used. What is more the resort employed a policy of no more than 4 divers to a dive guide, now how impressive is that!!
If we arrived at a dive site where there was another dive boat (I think this happened twice) we moved onto another site less crowded!!! How fantastic is that?
Mark and Mike did the deep diver course whilst they were out there and the tuition they received was really thorough.
And the diving...............that was something else.
If anyone had said to me before we went on holiday that I would enjoy muck diving looking at black sand instead of beautiful corals and pretty coloured fish, I would have said they were crazy. But how wrong I would have been.
convert, my all time favourite dive site is Paradise Point which is a mixture
of muck diving, corals, weird and wonderful fish and
The accommodation was great, the bungalows are designed in such a way that although they are in blocks of two you never see or hear the occupants in the adjoining bungalow.
Val and Mike took advantage of the Spa facilities and really enjoyed the treatments they had.
We were all impressed with the conservation programme that Gaspare and the staff have initiated on the island and the training programme they have set up for the local children on the island to teach them how to protect the environment. We sponsored a turtle purchased by the hotel from a local fisherman and we released her back into the sea the day we came home. What a way to end a perfect holiday on a beautiful paradise island.
Many thanks Nikola for booking the holiday for us and no doubt we will be in touch in the future and we will see you and Gaspare at the dive show in October.

I thought I'd send a quick note to thank you for my prize trip
We just want to let you know that our holiday in
We thoroughly enjoyed the diving and can't imagine that there is
anywhere in the world to have more corals and a wider variety of fish and
little things to see. Itís a shame that not more people from
Thanks once again Nikola and we will be in touch when itís our next holiday.
