Happy New Year to you and a huge thank you from all of us for the most wonderful relaxing holiday. We had such a lovely time and it was the right dates to go. Not too crowded and it was so nice to know that we still had weeks of holiday when we got back. The resort suited us . Not too big, the rooms were comfortable, there was a good mix of local food and food that we knew and the beach was perfect. The staff were great and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. Lauren had a few visits to the Spar which she loved. Entertainment was provided each night which we enjoyed while our boys remained in the adults only area and made good use of the all inclusive package ! They really enjoyed those cocktails! All inclusive is definitely the way to go.
Thank you for all your advice and arranging everything, it all worked well.
So of course we all want to do something again this December! It won't be able to be that big again but if you come across a really good deal on a cruise or anything you think we may be interested in ( all inclusive) please let me know. We are still in paradise beach for another few days and then it is back to the heat in Empangeni... Not looking forward to it at all! A few photos to follow.
Have a great year.
"Lorrin from All Aboard Travel is the best travel agent I’ve ever dealt with. Nothing is too much trouble, and she always ensures she gets you the best deal.
We always travel last minute, yet she makes it happen, stress-free. Awesome service. Wouldn’t use anyone else!”

Just to thank you for your help and guidance in organising our trip to Kandui Resort in the Mentawai Islands.
Ray and the staff at the resort are true professionals. Their entire focus is getting you into the best surf possible and nothing is too much trouble.
The quality and knowledge of the area the surf guides have is unparalleled. There is no doubt that Kandui Resort is the best resort in the Mentawais, and one of the best land-based surf camps in the world.
To be part of the Billabong Surf with a Pro at the resort was an incredible experience. We were fortunate to be able to hang and surf with 3 Pro Billabong surfers. Lots of fun and great advise. Josh Harper from Billabong organised the trip and was fantastic to be around and talk to. In short, any Billabong surf trip is one not to be missed!
Kandui Resort is an unspoiled piece of paradise and we wouldn't hesitate to go there again. We scored overhead waves everyday and most of the time there would only be our crew in the water. - Stephen
"Oh my word.... how did you find this place?? Absolute heaven...
Thank you for the most incredible holiday. We had such a fantastic time :-)
What a treat to surf crystal clear waves with the most beautiful coral reefs below.
We'll definitely be going back." - Kel Bottcher
Sorry, dived straight back into work as we arrived back. Lombok was incredible. Wish we were back there right now!
Kerry, the owner was a cool host. We were the first to stay in the new Imba unit which was massive and included air con and hot water. It was secluded and had an awesome view of the Bay.
The dining area and swimming pool is elevated on the cliffs and overlooks the main surf break. A perfect A-frame with a mellow wave for all levels. About 300m around the corner is another perfect left called Outside Ekas for the advanced surfers.
The food was amazing. Order off a menu and 15min later you’re tucking into something special. Never ate the same meal twice.
We surfed a few other waves in the area and did some site seeing but generally just chilled out.
We had an epic honeymoon guys. Thank you for the REAL Indo holiday." - Kelly & Lyle Bottcher
"We had the most wonderful holiday and All Aboard planned it beautifully and was very organized and our flights, transfers and accommodation went off without a hitch!
Le Cannonier was the perfect resort for a family holiday with young children. We had garden-facing ground floor rooms that opened up onto the lawn and the swimming pool was right in front of us and the beach 20 metres away. This meant that we could sit at the pool and have a baby monitor in the room.
Thank you, Lorrin, for sending us there – it was a great choice and we had a fabulous holiday. I am sure the girls will add to my comments and hopefully send you a couple of pictures!" - Helen and Brian Donald, Olivia and Denys Reitz and Kids and Chania and Pawel Stempowski – and the little one.
"Just a quick thank you for organising our trip!!! It was amazing!!! Everything went smoothly and we had an awesome time!! Good waves, good weather, good food and lots of Bintang!! The service at Aman Gati is awesome, the staff are super friendly and they keep the rooms and gardens looking spotless!! We would definately go back tomorrow! Just need the money ;)" - Philip Malherbe
"Just got back from our Indo trip and thought I will let you know what a wonderful time we all had. Our group has travelled together for over 10 years on a number of different boats with a large variety of Captains and crew. This trip was undoubtedly a highlight. Christian and his motivated crew of 5 are an absolute pleasure to travel with. I highly recommend this boat, its fantastic skipper and crew. As usual, your service was outstanding!" - Kevin O'Sullivan
"My wife and I have just returned from an AMAZING Honeymoon at Beachcomber Le Canonnier, Mauritius thanks to Lorrin at All Aboard. We can highly recommend not only Lorrin and her exemplary service that she offers, but that of the resort aswell. Service, Food, Accommodation, Transfers...everything was top class ! I have been in the service / airline industry for over 16 years and have a eye for detail; All Aboard's service; and the resort that was recommended totally blew away our expectations ! Nothing was too much trouble for Lorrin, we never waited more than 30min to get a reply on any quote or query; and trust me there were plenty - wanting the best; on a tight budget. We will definitely be using your services again !" - David Frew
"Hi Guys! Just back from our amazing trip to Bali and surrounding islands. We loved every moment of it! It would never have been made possible without all the expert advice we received from Chantal, Michele and Lorrin. What a fabulous team you are! Daniel was so stoked with the surfing advice and knew it was coming from people who surfed and knew what they were talking about. Bali was great but busy however Lombok and Nusa Lembongan were out of this world. We chilled, drank Bintangs and surfed the whole time. We are back at work and already I am planning our next trip to the Maldives. Will contact Lorrin now! Thanks again, All Aboard are professional, their service outstanding and the little extras we got (Zigzag subscription and Swindle discount) were a welcome surprise!" - Jayde Hemingway
"Hey guys thanks for the mental Maldives trip, Would highly recommend Kandooma Resort for all Families, Couples or just frothed surfers .... theres loads of waves around the area, plus a sick right point on the actual island ! Snorkeling was the best I've ever seen and the food was next level !!!! Yewwwwww" - Steve Michelsen
"Super excited for my trip to Thailand in March.. Thanx to Lorrin Jarvis at All Aboard Travel for always being so DAM patients when it comes to making bookings for me... Have been ummming and ahhinggg since last year October! I would have lost it by now hahaha!! " - Helen Swithenbank
"Hey everyone at all aboard. My flights to Oz went as smoothly as can be. No paying overweight, I'm sneaky like that! Thanks for organizing everything Lorrin Jarvis, I'd die without you! Only thing is I'm up at 2am or atleast 2 hours every night!! Haha, the joys of traveling the world!
Much love from Ozzie land xxxx" - Faye Zoetmulder
"Thank you Lorrin Jarvis for another epic All Aboard trip. Could not have gone any better, great boat, great crew and seamless organizing. And we scored two big consecutive swells which I'm sure you organized as well." - Pierre Badenhorst
"This is just a short note to say how much we loved staying at Sugar Beach on our recent trip to Mauritius. I’m not a resort person and as you know I went kicking and screaming on our annual family holiday. What a wonderful holiday it turned out to be. I’m relaxed, tanned, surfed quality waves and even scored Tamarin 4 times, Black rocks twice and have the coral cuts to prove it….SOOOOO shallow! My two girls snorkelled, sailed and swam in the 2 pools and warm sea until they fell asleep exhausted every night, the kids club giving mom and dad time to go for long runs and surf guilt free.
For a quality relaxing holiday I’m going to give you 5 stars for your service, efficiency and the excellent recommendation.( Sugar beach)" - Jacques Theron
"Dear Lorrin and team: Just a short note to say we all had a great time at Paradis. Besides the kids having a blast beaching, learning to waterski and sail, Dad was able to score some excellent waves nearby and mom was able to get a well-deserved chill out.Thanks for your recommendation – tops!" - Dawie De Villiers
"I would like to thank you for the absolute flawless service and advice you have given me since I have started using All Aboard.
Carey and I have had the most amazing experiences in Dubai, Mentawai's and the Maldives. The information is accurate and your advice is always spot on. We look forward to our next adventure with All Aboard. It really can not come soon enough!" - Rory Ouwerkerk
"Thank you! This was a wonderful holiday[to Mauritius]...and you made it happen.
One day passed into the next with little effort, much eating, and wonderful family time. The staff were magnificent. They remembered our drink preferences at each meal and these magically appeared without us ordering them during our stay. The food was great, the snorkelling was lovely, we made new friends, we relaxed and made memories, we forgot time and we arrived home relaxed and rejuvenated! " - Kathy Hill
