Maldives - All
Dreaming of perfect well- planned vacation, tailored- made just for you?
I am here to help you with all travel arrangements, while you are busy packing your suitcases for the next trip.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Ksenia. I was born and raised in St. Petersburg, the cultural capital of Russia.
Living in one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world, inspired me to choose my future profession -to become a Travel Expert.
I was lucky enough to travel around Europe during my High School times, however, I have
always, dreamt of more -to explore the rest of the world.
So 10 years back, I moved to Dubai, as a fresh graduate, following my career in the Travel and Hospitality industry.
Dubai became my second home and opened new boundaries for me. I travelled to more than 25 countries and still counting.
Before becoming a Travel Counselor I got a great experience in the Travel industry as I learned from the best. I worked for the world-famous luxurious hotels, travel companies and for the past 5 years in award-winning Emirates airlines.
That background made me who I am right now- Travel Counselor with the highest standards in customer service, in-depth knowledge of the most exciting destinations of the world and passion to create tailor-made itineraries, exceeding my customer's expectations.
So whether you would like to arrange for example a romantic getaway to the Maldives, Blue Safari in Zanzibar or zip-lining in Fiji or even dancing tango in Argentina or retreat in Bali, please let me know.
You will get an expert advice, as I have been there by myself.
Moreover, I do have an access to the best travel offers that will make a great value for money.
By paying attention to every detail, with me you are in the safe hands. I will guide you from the moment of booking until you will happily come back home.
I will be more than happy to go extra mile for you and make sure that your trip is just perfect.
Life is an adventure. So where will you go next?

Seychelles is not only a perfect romantic destination for a vacation but also a dream island for mini travelers. Number one it is the safest place in the tropics that doesn’t require any extra vaccinations and plus you can't find any dangerous animals and plants. Seychelles are family-oriented islands with very hospitable local people. Especially if you are travelling with your youngsters, locals will greet your very warmly and will be absolutely fine with noisy kids running around. In Seychelles, your little ones would not need to wear any shoes, as on the cleanest sandy beaches you will not find any...

Are you adventurer at heart like me? If yes, then I recommend one of my craziest adventures - visiting mountain Kilimanjaro. We were staying in Zanzibar for our holidays, when I got that spontaneous idea to visit Kilimanjaro. We had only 1 day for that tour and it sounded impossible. There were no tours like that that could be offered to us, so our hotel concierge customized a whole itinerary for us. The plan was to get a speed boat trip and it was the only way to catch a flight early morning at 7am from Dar E Salam Airport ) to...

Mas Que Nada - till now I can hear that Brazilian song in my ears. It was always my dream to travel to Rio De Janeiro, so when it finally came true, I couldn't believe my happiness. I don't know why but directly I felt like at home, maybe because of Brazilian soap operas that I watched in my childhood.. The vibe and energy of the city is crazy - like carnival that you live everyday, but at the same time very laid back. I loved to spend hours sitting on my beach chair on Copacabana, sipping fresh coconut and admiring the Atlantic Ocean. Apart...

Zanzibar is one of the unique African islands that combines luxury and wildness of Tanzania. It was one of those places that I had no clue about but was very curious to discover. My partner and I travelled to Zanzibar in April. We were fully aware that there will be a rainy season but it was only time we could take a vacation. And we made a right decision. As it turned out most of the travelers avoid going to this island in the rainy season, so our beautiful authentic hotel The Residence Zanzibar was almost empty, so we had our...

It’s well-known that the Maldives is a dream island for the honeymooners and romantic getaways, however, this place is perfectly suitable for the family vacation. Just imagine -blue turquoise water, white and soft sandy beach, water villas and of course highest level of service-sounds like a paradise. I personally have been to amazing Anantara Per Aquum at Huvafenfushi island. My husband and I travelled there for a short break over a weekend and it was absolutely worth it. We arrived at the Male airport, where a speedboat transfer was waiting for us. It took us only 20 minutes to get there....

Bali is an incredible place where your body and soul will be rejuvenated. I have personally been there twice and honestly, will go there again and again. There is something about those green rice fields, clear waterfalls, Indian ocean with its changing tides. For the family vacation, I would recommend Nusa Dua, the most luxurious and well- the maintained area with only world-famous hotels chains like Marriott, Starwood, Radisson and Hyatt. First time I visited Bali in April and the second time in December. And I can say that In December the weather was more comfortable due to the less rain. My friends...

Sri Lanka was just beyond expectations! We travelled there in the end of May with my 2 years old baby girl and hubby. Honestly I wasn't expecting anything much, as I didn't know what this beautiful country is and what it can actually offer. We were considering different destinations-for the family vacations - Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, Thailand and even Bali. As it turned out that in from May till August they do have a rainy season in South East region... So I was thinking that if its raining in Maldives , we will have nothing to do with the kid....

Dear Ksenia, We just came back to Dubai, but our minds are still on Maldives. Honestly, Maldives is just like a dream, it is like a real paradise. I would be lying if I say that I liked our island, because I absolutely loved it. Clear turquoise Ocean, white sand, beautiful all-inclusive hotel with high-level service. The hotel staff were the most amazing and kind people that were taking really good care of us during the whole stay.. I would like to thank you Ksenia for recommending the best hotel option, for arranging the whole trip and taking care of all the documents. You were in touch 24/7 for all our questions and inquiries. Actually, it is not that easy to travel in pandemic times, that is why I am so happy that we found such a Trusted Travel Counsellor like you! You helped us out not only with customized travel itinerary, but also you consulted about PCR tests procedures, travel rules and guidelines. We felt safe and relaxed booking with you. So thank you so much again for all your efforts in creating a happy journey for us! Can’t wait to book with you our next trip once new destinations will be reopened!

Good afternoon, Ksenia! Our mini-vacation is coming to the end and I wanted to thank you again for your great service. My family really enjoyed Le Meridien Al Aqah. I think it has an amazing beach area, the best on Fujairah coast. The food was delicious and the hotel offered guests the wide selection of dishes. Kids were happy at the beach and pool, even though the kids activities are not available at the moment. Definitely we are coming to come back once the hotel reopens all the kid-friendly facilities.

Ksenia , thank you for booking our family staycation in Fujairah at Le Meridien Al Aqah! We got so lucky to get an upgrade to the higher category with the balcony. We really appreciate that you managed to find for us great deal. Can you imagine we were the only guests with All Inclusive rate. Our kid really enjoyed the beach and the swimming pool, even though kids facilities were still closed. Overall, we had a great family time together!

Thank you Ksenia! Our staycation in Intercontinental Fujairah went great. We really enjoyed their infinity pool, even though the second swimming pool was closed for renovation. The hotel is serving amazing breakfasts. The rooms are super spacious and comfortable. We were happy to stay in Garden View Room as you suggested as we had a wonderful pool view and even could see the Ocean .

As a personal travel consultant, Ksenia is nothing short of a marvel; the best I have ever had the pleasure to rely on. She is prompt to respond to every request, and is comprehensive in laying out travel options for any itinerary. Perhaps her most valuable attribute, however, is her creativity and speed in suggesting and implementing solutions to the inevitable travel challenges that arise for those who travel frequently.

Thank you Ksenia for arranging our family staycation in Fujeirah! We enjoyed staying in Fujeirah Rotana-it is a really nice hotel. I appreciate that you managed to get us the room type, that we were looking for. Kids just loved swimming pool with the slide and of course we happy to jump on the ocean waves after a long quarantine. Looking forward to our new adventure in Ras Al Khaimah, that you have already booked for us.

Thank you Ksenia for your help in organizing our staycation. We loved it. The hotel was great, lots of different restaurants, pools, sea, nice beach. There were lots of birds, horses, and even peacocks walking around the hotel grounds. Our kid enjoyed a buggy ride -we probably spent a half day on it. At midday they brought us an owl, my daughter was amazed and just loved it. The staff was very pleasant, everything was top notch. I think JA Lake View Hotel is the best resort we had ever stayed here, in UAE.

It was the most amazing adventure I and my family have ever been on. Just waking up to hear the ocean crashing up against the shore was amazing. The birds chirping the crabs walking the beach totally amazing! We visited all the Temples we could find. We went to are beaches Bentota; area restaurants and fresh fruit stand along the roads. Moneywise it was the best trip thus far. Be prepared to do some walking but enjoy the Poolside mountainous views and FRESH AIR! We thank you Ksenia, we had an awesome time and we will return.

I used services of Travel Counsellors while choosing my Christmas cruise trip with MSC Lirica. Ksenia guided me carefully through available options, routes and price ranges. Considering a quite tight time frame (just two weeks before my travel dates), Ksenia made my booking process simple and fast, headache free. Me and my son personally really enjoyed out trip with MSC cruises, it was a great value for money. Amazing food, very friendly staff and smooth trip. I would highly recommend Ksenia as your personal travel guide.

Thank you very much Ksenia for your organization!!! We were taken from the house in a new clean jeep, supplied with water all the way, also they provided drinks during the trip; we did the dune bashing, saw the wild animals, we watched the sunset, painted henna-tattoo, we even did sandboarding. Dinner was delicious, we watched fire shows and belly dance .OMG, my son said it was the best day ever!
