|Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives|
Deciding on where to stay in the Maldives can be an overwhelming experience. Studying webpage after webpage of stunning beauty, pretty soon the sites all blend into a whir of brilliant aquamarine with promises of tranquility, superb service and delicious meals. It’s difficult to distinguish one from another, but with the price tag accompanying most resorts and the cost of flights to get to these secluded paradises, the decision on where to spend our hard-earned cash is not taken lightly.
That’s where Lightfoot Travel was able to assist. Being fussy travelers, not fond of anything involving a group or large scale operations, and desiring to make the most of every moment leaving nothing to chance, Lightfoot’s “travel designers” noted our needs and offered to compose a personalized itinerary utilizing only the best properties, activities and restaurants they have sourced first-hand.
What a time saver! I’m relieved of the duty of spending hours comparing online reviews and seeking personal recommendations from friends and social media contacts. It might actually feel like a holiday – one that I haven’t had to do hard labour to create beforehand.
Lightfoot employs a group of select travel-obsessed planners, all who have had years of experience personally trotting the globe. Take my travel designer Nikki for example. She was born in Seattle, grew up in Hong Kong, studied in Boston and London, and is currently living in Beijing.

After discussing our needs, Nikki sent us an itinerary summary including dates, timing, flight numbers, room categories and so on. The one pager let us see at a glance our entire trip. Following the outline, was a detailed schedule including a couple of beautiful photos and a few sentences about each item.

In upcoming posts you’ll see more of our wonderful four days planned with Lightfoot Travel. We’ll be using them again for sure. Currently personalizing travel itineraries across six continents, we’re excited to see what more one-of-a-kind experiences they can invent for us.
