OUR TEAM

Our company has a simple mission...

"To bring you dream holidays in the Indian Ocean at an affordable price by using our specialist knowledge and the power of the Internet."

We understand that for most people a holiday in the Mauritius is an expensive luxury and that getting things 'just right' is very important. Even moreso if the trip is a special occasion, such as a honeymoon or anniversary. We make it our personal goal to ensure that we fully understand your desires and requirements so that we can help you select the perfect resort for you. Our exceptional personal service extends from the moment you contact us, through selection and booking, and throughout the duration of your trip. That's why so many of our clients come back to us again and again.

Since Mauritius Direct Holidays began in 2003, the team has grown with the business. We are all passionate about travel, and love the Indian Ocean as a destination. We're frequent visitors so that our resort knowledge is always up-to-date and, we believe, second to none.

Jo Pearce

Jo travelled extensively during her former career in equity sales, both on business and privately, and has a discerning eye for quality. As a keen golfer, Mauritius is her favourite destination in the Indian Ocean, though the Maldives is a growing attraction as she becomes a snorkelling addict. Jo is also our resident chef, so she lends an expert's view on gastronomy at our recommended resorts... and drop by to try one of her famous brownies!

Dan Jones

Dan describes himself as part recovering FX trader, part golfing hacker, part IT hack & part frustrated artist. Most of all though, he is passionate about travelling the world and meeting new people. Dan has lived in a variety of countries, including Japan, Singapore, Germany, USA & Portugal.

Caroline Britt

Caroline is our Operations Manager, making sure that everything runs smoothly from the moment you make a booking with us, until you receive your carefully-prepared travel documents. When all the ducks have been accounted for, lined up, polished and given their regimental orders, Caroline can be found either travelling to exotic destinations or turning a dab hand on the Netball court.

Clare Hilson

Clare brings 25 years of experience in the travel industry, in a variety of roles, to the Angelfish team. Clare's favourite resort (so far!) is Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, and when she's not travelling to the Indian Ocean, she's helping organise the annual Cranbrook Music Festival.

Simon Harvey

Simon has lived and worked in Singapore, Dubai & North America, before returning home to Kent, and enjoys travelling in style and appreciating the finer things in life (don't we all!).

Muttley

Muttley is our head of office security. Apologies if you hear the occasional woof while on the phone, but he takes his job very seriously, particularly when the postman arrives. Muttley likes deep snow, real ale and pigs' ears.

Jim Forrest

Building on a career in Information Technology, Jim returned to his true passion - travel in the Indian Ocean. Recognising that there was a lack of specialist knowledge and genuine customer service in the market, he founded Maldives Direct on those principles from his home. Now retired from the day to day activities of the business, Jim is still available to discuss Tanzania and Zanzibar.
