Chloe, 39, with partner Ali Haneef has launched an independent Maldives travel business – Amazing Escapes.
The business, she says, “is dedicated to providing personalised and unforgettable journeys, allowing our clients to immerse themselves in the natural beauty and luxury of the Maldives.
"We work with some of the most exclusive resorts in the archipelago and take pride in turning dreams into reality in this incredible destination. “I’ve gone from my humble beginnings in Sussex, to now selling dreams to clients from all corners of the globe, including the UK, US, Australia, and beyond.”
Chloe grew up and spent her childhood at the family home in Pondtail Road, Horsham. She is a former Millais School and Collyer’s Sixth Form College student and started her travel career by clinching a job with Kuoni Travel in Dorking.
“I absolutely fell in love with selling holidays to the Far East and Indian Ocean. I had found my calling,” said Chloe. “I was soon tasked to tour lead a Maldives familiarisation trip, taking 20 or so travel agents with me out to the Maldives to visit hotels for first-hand product knowledge.
"I absolutely fell in love with the destination, and later took the plunge to move out there and work as an overseas destination representative for Kuoni. My career then moved on to local tour operators and luxury resorts in the Maldives.”
She and Ali officially launched their own Amazing Escapes business in March this year. “We gave up our comfortable jobs in luxury Maldives resorts at the end of 2022 to turn our collective passion, experience and expertise into a business, helping others discover this idyllic paradise.”
Now Amazing Escapes prides itself on ensuring its customers experience the very best of the Maldives. "We know the Maldives like the palm of our hand, and we share our expertise with customers all over the world to create unforgettable Maldives holidays. Our dedication lies in using only the highest quality products and services, committed to meeting every customer’s travel needs.”
