We had an amazing time in Thailand, our first trip to this beautiful country and our first experience booking through Hello Island. From the initial booking and payment to receiving a comprehensive itinerary meticulously planned with all tours, dining spots, bars, and sightseeing locations for each destination, traveling was incredibly smooth. Crossing three different islands and concluding in Bangkok, we encountered no challenges with local or connecting flights. Everything was seamlessly included, making travel between places effortless. Each excursion had a dedicated individual catering to our needs throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend Hello Island and eagerly anticipate booking my next adventure with them. What an incredible experience! Thank you, Hello Island.


Can i give you 10 stars??

Amazing, just like the last time. Thank you, thank you, thank you Remmert and team. Can’t wait to book through you for the 3rd time, next year!

Janmare Le Roux

We got back today from our holiday from Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi. Remmert as always arranged all flights, hotels, ferries and transports . There is no better team to arrange your Thailand holiday than Hello Island. Thanks again Remmert for arranging such an amazing holiday. I’m already planning next year’s holiday.


I cannot praise Hello Island more highly for a fabulous 2-week trip to Thailand. The organization was seamless, from our transfers to accommodation etc. The information provided was excellent, knowledgeable, informative and helpful. We got a real feel for the country, every hotel we stayed in gave us a truly memorable stay.
Remmert went out of his way to assist us every time and at any time when needed.

We can honestly recommend Hello Island’s services.

Stephen Vorster
Customer Service Manager

We had a wonderful trip!
Arrangements and attention to detail by Remmert from Hello Island were perfect.
They communicated with us throughout our holiday which ensured smooth and care-free travel. What a pleasure.
We would strongly recommend Hello Island for any holiday or travel arrangements.
Thank you !

Christiaan Slabbert

What an experience we had! 7 travellers in our group have never visited Thailand and I was a little concerned that not everyone will enjoy it. How wrong was I ! With Remmert in control of the bookings of our flights and hotels and ample info supplied beforehand to ready the group, it was fun, sea and shopping all the way. 1 of the travellers unfortunately suffered a medical emergency, but with Remmert on board and the very helpful staff at Celes Samui, I’m happy to confirm that he is fully recovered and ready for the next Thailand experience. Thanks again Hello Island team, you are as amazing as the Land of Smiles

Anne-Mari Burger

Wow, we were blown away with the service . Been on many holidays but this was the best . The hotel’s were fabulous and the locations and the breakfasts. Also while we were there we were checked upon and if we needed a question answered the response was almost immediate. Will recommend Hello Island 100 percent.

Anne Gray

A huge thank you to Remmert, again you outdone yourself. The trip was amazing and what made it even more amazing was the fact that you did not have to worry about anything. From the shuttles to and from the airport and ferry right down to the hotels. The guys was always on time never once did we have to wait for a driver. Hotels were chosen spot on by Remmert. We loved every one of them. The location of the hotels were where we would have chosen ourselves. You guys are legends. Chat to you again soon for our next trip. Warm regards.

Derik Swanepoel

This was not my first solo (female) trip, but this was the first where I felt I was taken care off. The digital booklet and the detail contained was my “security” throughout my 3 weeks in Thailand. My trip was personalized according to my expectations and was really an amazing experience. Hello Island are highly recommended when you choose Thailand as your holiday destination.

Yvette Fourie
Solo traveller

Thank you Remmert for once again arranging the most well organised trip for us to Krabi with everything being extremely professional and streamlined from our arrival in Phuket, the transfer to Krabi, our hotel accommodation at the Panan Resort and then again the transfer from Krabi back to the Phuket airport. The service you provide and the extra mile you always go is exemplary.
All your recommendations are well worth a try and we enjoyed every minute of our time in Krabi.

Vanessa Speck

Hello Islands is the absolute best agency to use for your Thailand trip! You don’t have to lift a finger with any arrangements! They are even available whilst in Thailand to asdist! They definitely deserve more than 5 stars!!!!

Lindy van der Merwe

Although I have traveled overseas before, the Thailand island hopper holiday that I booked with Remmert Malan was the best holiday by far. As soon as I confirmed my booking, I received a digital booklet that was the key to the most awesome and hassle free holiday ever, and even included contact numbers for every stage of my trip. Everything was taken care of so efficiently, that I didn’t even need to use them. There was no unnecessary delay or lagging anywhere. Inter airport, island and hotel transfers were always on time and waiting for me. This was a real blessing. It’s usually always a struggle when one is in a different country. But thanks to Hello Island, I did not experience any of the usual waiting or delays anywhere. Everything went so smoothly and precisely. The hotel accommodation was always upmarket. Remmert even gave me sightseeing suggestions. This was by far the best international holiday experience ever. Remmert Malan offers unrivaled superior 5 star service, and I will definitely book all future holidays with him.

Valentino Singh
Slow lounge host

Hello Island is the best travel agent ever. Remmert Malan is a true professional and an expert in his field. He delivers everything he promises… and more. From the flights, airport transfers, boat and ferry transfers and hotel accommodation – everything was first class. My family and I will only use Hello Island for all future holidays. Keep up the good work, Remmert and team

Was fantastic !!

Johan Oosthuizen

What a dream come true! My husband and I had the holiday of a lifetime that involved Planes, trains and automobiles (scooters and bicycles too!). Remmert and the Hello Island team created a seamless, magical and luxurious trip. There was nothing for us to do except enjoy the journey. We cannot thank you enough. The only issue is that we want to go back and do it all again. Thank you Hello Island!

Candice Gibbs

I visited Thailand in 2018 just after my father passed away. We really enjoyed our trip and would definately recommend Hello Islands to our friends and family. Friendly helpful staff. Overall an amazing experience. Thank you

Ronel le Roux

We booked a Thailand holiday in 2018 with Hello island,from the booking phase to the end everything went flawless.Hello Island professional service has added to a wonderful holiday experience. We strongly recommend if you want to have a unforgettable holiday book with Hello Island.

Alan Meiklejohn

Where to start ??
Having seen a small advert from Hello Islands and wanting to do another Thailand trip to see our older son, I decided to give them a call.
A young man, Remmert Malan, took my call & subsequent mails with loads of questions in-between and handled them with patience & knowledge.
So we embarked on our trip ( wife will attest to being a little sceptical) that Remmert had put together.
Phuket, Phi Phi & Krabi.
To tell you that everything, absolutely everything, was fantastic is an understatement.
Hello Islands took care of every detail – plane tickets – taxi’s – ferries.
What an experience, Thailand for sure, but dealing with Remmert and Hello Islands made our trip seamless.
thank you young man.
we will most certainly book through you again

Paul Harwood

Thanks to Hello Island, our trip was absolutely amazing!
We did not have to worry about anything as everything was done for us.

Thailand is a beautiful place, we would definitely recommend Hello Island to anyone!

Thank you Hello Island for planning and booking the holiday of our dreams!

Tayla Milho

Absolutely breathtaking holiday! For 1st time travelers we were very nervous. Hello Island made it so easy and comfortable for us! Even booked our seats on our flights. There information booklet and what to do in Thailand was out of this world. The assistance of their staff is amazing! No matter how silly the request. Thank you for the most amazing trip ever!! I highly recommend Hello Island to everyone who is thinking of going to Thailand. Phi Phi a must see. Every morning when I woke up and walked outside my breath was taken away!!! They deserve more than just 5 stars!!!

Lindy van der Merwe

I would just like to say a huge thank you to Hello Island for planning such an excellent trip for us to Thailand .
Would like to give an extra mention to Remmert who was our agent we worked with. Remmert thank you for always responding as fast as you could and just always helping with advice to make our trip run smoothly.
Ive worked with many travel agencies before but I must say Hello Island stands out and I look forward to working with them in the future .

Chante Brown

Remmert was excellent – he was patient and addressed all our concerns and requests in a pleasant manner. He is the best.

Razeena Shaik

Our trip to Thailand for our honeymoon was amazing! The guidelines, tips and advice offered by Hello Island were invaluable on our journey. We will not only recommend your services to fellow travellers, but you will see us again soon. Thanks for a unique and memorable trip!

Bernard Swart

We really, really enjoyed our trip to Thailand. The easy process of booking with Hello Island and the travel itinerary suggestions they gave us before our trip was incredibly helpful and insightful. We didn’t feel like we were going blind into a country we’d never been to before… instead we felt well prepared and looked after. Each Island we visited and day trip we did just got more beautiful and exciting. The scenery, the adventure, the comfortable hotels, the organizing of each shuttle we needed, the tour guides, the tour experiences, the markets, culture, views, sunsets, beaches, boats, people, atmosphere… all made this a truly breathtaking experience and we’d recommend Hello Island every time…. and we’d LOVE to go back!

Island Hopper

WOW, where do I even begin with this review. From day one, on making the decision to spend Christmas and New Year in Phuket I knew we were in safe hands. Remmert, you were an exceptional professional with every aspect of our holiday. Thank you for a wonderful holiday with peace of mind.

Rene Reynolds

What an amazing holiday!!!!
so well organised and such a beautiful place!
thanks so much!!

Nadine Botha

They managed to book me a 3 week trip and I had the time of my life! If you can, I say visit as many cities as possible and stay for as long as you can! Each city is so unique and different to the next!

Hello Island was so efficient with everything and communicated all the time. There were regular emails and even whilst in Thailand they responded and solved my problems quickly! They are soo accommodating and it really does make a difference booking with such a great company that is so quick with assisting you! Recommending them to everyone who asks me who I booked through, it is worth the money! 100% would book with them again when I go back. Especially for solo travellers, having someone who you know knows the country very well is so useful. 10/10 experience, thank you Hello Island!! ❤️

Lea Patience
Solo Traveller

Best hotels were used, transfers were on spot. Could not fault him in any way. The digital I information handbook was excellent and very helpful. He kept in touch everytimexwe reached a new destination. Will and have recommended Hello Island to family and friends. 5 star services.

Anjeka Bhika
Recent Traveller

I heard about the travel agency through my friend Bernadine Fransman. If anyone wants to go on vacation, you need to plan, book and pay. Remmert Malan (travel agency) from Hello Island was very much in contact with us, and helped us through the process. Communication was informative. We received a Digital Travel Booklet with loads of information on how to plan our day to day outings. On arrival drinks were served, it was a very hot day. Check in staff were friendly and attentive. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. Rooms were very comfortable with all modern amenities. A holiday well spent, every day was a treat. We visited alot of places, the Buddha, temple, elephant riding, the upside-down house, zip lining, the Simon cabaray show, the nut factory, gem gallery and many more. The Phuket mall has a 5storey building very big (a treat on its own). We also had a trip with the ferry to Phi Phi Island for 3days. While on the boat we view the beautiful scenery and Maya Beach. We hire the Longtail boat to take us for swimming and snorkeling. We stop at Monkey beach and took some pictures. Thailand is very safe and clean. Should we go again next time, for sure we would definitely use Hello Island again .They really have outstanding services.

Marilyn Laban

We travelled using Hello Island. It was the best decision we made. We had an awesome time. Remmert Malan and his team put together a fantastic package for us. Everything was so convenient. They were so helpfull. Everything went as planned. Anyone that wants to go to Thailand, don’t think twice. Speak to the Hello Island team and will not go wrong. I highly recommend them and I will definitely use them again.
Keep up the good work and thank you for making our trip a memorable one.

Mohamed Khader

The adventure to Phuket and Phi Phi was really great and really something that every individual needs to experience, it will nourish ones soul and allow one to truly relax. From the excellent hotel, with the amazing views and humble staff, to the lovely walks, malls, street food and markets just added to a wonderful trip. I feel that the service we received from the Hello Island team was of top quality and because of their experience and guidelines, it allowed our group to have a wonder Thailand trip.


Excellent holiday package – everything up to and exceeding expectations, no hiccups with any of the arrangements.

Pieter Cronje

The holiday was unforgettable from booking ( a year ago) to the day we returned to Cape Town!
Huge compliments to Remmert, our travel agent, whose super power is creating reassurance, building trust and making holiday magic!
He was thorough, patient and understanding and no questions were off limits. He was as close as an email, and his response times were consistently AMAZING!
He ensure that were were well looked after from booking to travel insurance, to notifying us that online flight check-ins were open, to welcoming us to each new destination, to making recommendations for dining and adventure at each destination…the list goes on and on.
We experienced a problem at one of the hotels regarding our booking… Remmert was on the phone to us, and the hotel staff, in the blink of an eye and sorted out everything.
Remmert is very knowledgeable and all his recommendations were based on his own experiences… right down to getting us an upgrade in hotels!
The deal was really amazing, but the experience of being able to be cared for by Remmert was definitely the “cherry on top”! I cannot wait for the next holiday Remmert helps me plan and book!

Vanessa Curnow-Fortune

What an amazing holiday! Everything was Topclass! We will definitely do our trip again with Hello Island! Best price and up to date agenda!!

We traveled to Thailand. All bookings were done by Remmert from Hello Island. The service we received was excellent. Everything was as arranged/promised. The electronic booklet was excellent, never had this ever from any travel agent. The choice of hotels and the locations were excellent. Transfers were on time and luxury vehicles were used. We were very satisfied with the service that we received. Remmert and the company comes highly recommended. Just wish that they did other holiday destinations as well.

Anjeka Bhika

If you want a stress free holiday, then Hello Island is the team to use. Excellent service received from Remmert and his team, it was an unforgettable holiday.

Everything was arranged (flights, accommodation, hotel transfers, island hopping with ferries) by the team and was so well organised, from arriving at Thailand until returning back to SA, we did not once worry about where to go or how to get there, the electronic booklet received that included tips and advise helped us so much.

I highly recommend anyone to use Hello Island, Remmert thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday.

Will definitely suggest you to every traveler that ask…. Thanks again for a magnificent honeymoon…

Erna Braxton (Le Roux)

The over all experience was exceptional, that being from the time I sent the email to enquire about the promotional trips till the time I landed back home. The communication between Remmert and myself was of a good nature and he was always available, when needed. He updated and provided us with a wonderful e-book, that allowed us to plan our holiday and that contributed to the wonderful and amazing experience that we had. Thailand is a lovely place to visit, Phuket was exceptional with a stunning views and beaches, the staff were so humble and accommodating and the fact that transport was arrange, made the visit and experience GREAT!! The overall experience and visit to Thailand was something I cant really describe, as it was truly a wonderful experience, in will definitely recommend Remmert and his team for future visits to Thailand.

Barnadine Fransman

We had an amazing holiday thanks to the Hello Island team all arrangements were made for us and we could just sit back and enjoy our trip. Even when we changed our minds last minute to stay longer on PhiPhi island when we were enjoying the island far more than we imagined, Remmert arranged everything within minutes and we could just sit back and enjoy the rest of our holiday.
I highly recommend making use of their services for all your future bookings for a stress free holiday experience.

Mark Joubert

The most wonderful experience we’ve ever had, we can only say thank you to Remmert and his team for a wonderful holiday and we will recommend them to everyone that wants to go on holiday.

Susan de Lange

We had a great experience, all thanks to Remmert and his team. Everything was organized well. The transport and transfers between the hotels while we were there was very smooth going. We enjoyed the recommendations they gave us for activities, there is an abundance and we couldn’t even do it all. But there is most definitely something for everyone to do. For a stress free holiday I would most definitely recommend Hello Island.

Annerien De Jager

The trip was one amazing experience and how everything was planned out and set up was exactly as how the travel agent explained there was no hick ups or disappointments. Everything was amazing. Thank you so much Hello island for all the effort and making everything ease and accessible and for the travel guide you set up it was of great help. I would surely recommend your travel agency to others. Thank you Once again


What an amazing holiday. Thank you Remmert and Kiyla for making it a totally stress free time. Never ever did we even needed to think about how we were getting from one point to another – were were met by a transfer on time everytime. Everything ran smooth with all bookings – If I ever travel to Thailand again – I would not think twice to book through Hallo Island again. I also recommend you to everyone asking about our trip.

Thailand is a GEM. To us South Africans it is sooo affordable. Whether your are into the hustle and bustle, or just want to relax next to the beach – there is something for everyone.

My favourite was swimming in the warm sea water – something our Capetonians cannot really do here at home without freezing your bum off [LOL].

All in all a really nice experience

Henriette Els

Amazing trip. All arrangements went like clockwork. Remmert and Kiyla you guys are STARS!!!

Dick Putter

Best and most organised trip I have been on. Hello Island was an absolute pleasure to deal with- we will be using their services again and highly recommend them!


What an amazing experience! Everything was perfect – the hotels, the transfers, ferries and flights – all we had to do was show up! Remmert is on point and was even available direct to us to answer some questions when we were in Thailand. I have already referred a few people and would only recommend Hello Island for a Thailand holiday. THANK YOU!

Nadine Franke

Excellent well organised trip. Everything went as planned. The digital travel booklet provides sufficient information from start to finish and allows one to be able to choose confidently desired activities/ restuarants in different holiday destinations. Thank you Remmert!!


An excellent island hopping package put together by Remmert Malan, all hotels were as advertised by Remmert – 5 star in our opinion, transport arranged was promptly, breakfasts in the hotels were 5 star, a pity that during our last three days in Krabi we encountered rain but we knew that we might get rain sometime. We will definitely use Remmert Malan for future Thailand trips, we would like to see that a few days at Koh Samui instead of all 7 nights at Patong Beach.

Gert Griessel

Excellent organisation of the trip. Especially the transport was on time and well managed. The tours that was arranged trough Pat was excellent and she communicate with you via WhatsApp. Will definitely recommend them.

Madalyn van der spuy

Thank you Hello Island for being the go-to agent when it comes to Thailand holidays. Everything was planned with precision and absolute perfection.

We had a blast and celebrated life as a family.

Just totally, totally exceptional!

Abie Strydom

It was spot on and wonderfully organised. Also the recommendations were fantastic and it was a perfect thank you. (Jaime Steele, age 9)

Jaime Steele

Hello Island is the agency to use when travelling to Thailand. In addition to the travel arrangements, they also have great recommendations and tips for the trip and are available to help for any unforeseen circumstances. Their knowledgeable advice gets you into the swing of travelling in Thailand very quickly and enhances the overall experience. Many thanks Hello Island!

Vaughan Steele

Hello Island provided a brilliant service. Not only were the travel arrangements excellent and tailored to our needs, but the additional support and recommendations while in Thailand were spot-on. The recommended tour operators and recommended restaurants were great and good value. I highly recommend the services of Hello Island, who provided a professional and supportive service.


Remmert’s service from the time of enquiring right up to the advice given during the trip was nothing short of exceptional. We had the best time of our lives on this trip. Thank you!

The only bit of constructive criticism I would like to mention is no reflection on Remmert whatsoever, but on the PP Princess Resort: after the amazing comfort of the beds at The Nature Phuket, the beds at PP Princess were appallingly bad. As hard as planks and extremely uncomfortable to sleep on.

Melissa Largier

Excellent service
All Transfers perfect
No Stress
Flights and accommodation was excellent
Highly recomend Hello Island as your holiday Planner


What an amazing trip this was and very well executed. Location of hotels was amazing and the quality of the hotels was well above average. Will definitely use them again.

Theresa Nell

Our experience with Hello Island from beginning to end was nothing less than exceptional. Everything was extremely well organised, whenever assistance was needed it was given instantly, communication was brilliant, arrangements were seamless.. we can go on. We would recommend, and in fact, we have recommended this agency to many people prior to, and during our trip overseas. We will use Hello Island again with pleasure.


Before going into details, I wanna start by saying, if you are heading to Thailand for a holiday then Hello Island should be your best friend.
My trip was postponed a few times due to covid but my friend and I never gave up and throughout, I was getting communication from the Hello team.
The day of departure was approaching and everything was done without struggle, the only thing we had to do was provide travelling documents basically.
From the moment we set foot in Phuket airport, there was someone waiting for us with my name and took us straight to our hotel.
Everything was included in the digital travel booklet and by Everything and mean EVERYTHING, we had our itinerary in there, the best itinerary ever. We followed the itinerary that was made for us by the Hello team and I have never been to such an epic trip before. From day 1 till the last day.
We had taken the 4 Island including Bankok, best decision ever made, we were even starting to speak a little bit of Thai haha, the trip started off with at the islands, where we did snorkeling, scuba (I wish) haha but we didn’t have enough time to do training on that, I was flying on that parachute thing being pulled by a boat, the video is amazing, we came across weird animals, we had a swim in the beautiful natural lagoons, we partied at the beach, we hardly ever slept to be honest and long story short, we wrapped things up by blowing all the money in Bangkok before heading back LOL, 2 men shopping like new yorkers, we couldn’t help it and Bankok was just the place to do that.

Just book a trip with Hello Island, pack up and be ready to have a time of your life. Leave everything to them like we did.

Once again, thank you Hello Islands, thank you Remmert Malan for your patience with us especially. Hope to see you doing more countries because you are the only travel agency that I believe and trust in at the moment.

I’d give you 100 stars ✨ if I could. Exceptional service

Sello Raymond Nchee
Rochelle Geldenhuys

Remmert and his team helped us plan a wonderful holiday for our mother and aunt. Because this was their first international trip, I had some concerns around their safety and overall experience but the excellent planning done by the team allowed me to feel relaxed and them to enjoy every moment of their trip knowing that everything had been taken care of. Thank you for allowing us to give these two ladies an unforgettable trip!


This was our first time overseas and thus we felt uncertain and didn’t know what to expect.
However, Remmert and his team made it so easy and relaxing, we didn’t need to stress or worry about anything.
They treated us with the utmost respect and professionalism and always assist us doesn’t matter what the question.
Everything was planned until the last point.
Flights, Transports from and to the Hotels either by Boat or Taxi.
Every few days we received an email with a to do list of the activities to do in the area we were.
We had a Digital Travel booklet set up by Hello Island, which helped alot.
We really had a fantastic Honeymoon and 2 weeks abroad, if we could we would have stayed much longer
We will definitely make use of Hello Island again.

Thank you for making our Honeymoon and first time overseas the best experience imaginable.

Call Center Agent

We recently returned from Thailand where we spent 25 glorious days, visiting 8 destinations and having the time of our lives.
Thank you Hello Islands for making this possible! Remmert and Team, your passion for what you do, your love of Thailand and your wealth of knowledge is evident in everything you do. We love the personalized Digital Travel Booklet which we received prior to departure containing all information on flights, accommodation, transfers, Travel tips and trips. All hotel bookings and transfers between destinations (whether by land or sea) were planned flawlessly. Any questions or concerns were answered immediately. Once again……….Thank you! for a carefree and stress free vacation perfectly planned by yourselves and for making our 2nd trip to Thailand truly memorable.

Linda van der Walt

Amazing service. Will definitely us Remmert and team again.

Thank you.

Well, where do we start?

Since the first communication with Remmert and Team at Hello Island, all went as smooth as a hot knife in butter. We have given through our needs and what we wanted to do and they have put together a holiday package to suit our needs.

And was this now a great and awesome experience.

The electronic booklet makes it so much easier as all your vouchers for travelling, accommodation and transfers are included. Not to forget the tips given to you and what / where you can explore and enjoy good quality time.
Our seats were booked online by Remmert, so it’s like packing your bags and getting onto the Aeroplane, forgetting about everything and relaxing. Nothing to worry about.
On arrival, great welcome by our guide taking us to Hotels for an awesome holiday experience waiting on us. Time to relax and experience Phuket and its surroundings in your own time. We have included a couple of Islands this year, which was awesome as all arrangements by Hello Island were done professionally with no issues.

Indeed, credit must go to Remmert when we needed assistance from him this year for a Dentist after day 4 in Phuket with an Emergency for my wife. 15 Minutes and I was informed that an appointment has been arranged and all necessary info was provided by Remmert, even made an appointment as well. Thanks for all that help Remmert. For this reason, his 24-hour Emergency number as provided in the booklet assisted us a lot.

Then coming to all transfers between the Islands. Surely, this was awesome and all in place. Everything was on top with no hassles and believe me, I will never go through the hassle to do all bookings myself. When it comes to pick-ups, for transfers. Drivers on time at all Hotels and Piers. One is really treated like a King, compared to those travelling with you.

Hotels / Accommodation.
Outstanding and we were surprised by the hospitality and the way we were welcomed and treated at all hotels we stayed over. Now, I need to mention that this year we stayed over in 9 different hotels/locations (Phuket, Phi Phi, Railay Island, Krabi, Koh Samui, Koh Tao, Khao Sok (Jungle Village Hotel & The Lake) and Khao Lak. Breakfast and at some even lunch and dinner included. Great variety of food which you can never complain about. Almost too much to choose from. And this was great with an awesome experience at each of them. For sure to be visited again in the future.

Overall, we had a great time in Thailand with the most friendly people although it was a bit quiet, one will understand after the Covid, but surely business will pick up and I believe will return to normal again. All excursions we have booked locally with good prices and excellent service. Never did we have a dull moment.

Then, all compliments to Remmert Malan and his Team at Hello Island for arranging such a great holiday for us where great memories and friendships were made and will last forever.

To those future and regular travellers, for sure you will not make a mistake making use of Hello Island, putting your package together for an unforgettable vacation.

If the current promotions are not fit for you or your pocket, don’t hesitate in putting your package together and request Remmert to work out a deal for you.

Highly recommendable to each and every one.

Thailand, we will see you in 2023 and once again, Hello Island you won’t get rid of this family.


A wonderful holiday with a detailed itinerary, especially Ao Nang, Krabi. Here, details from the restaurants to massage places were helpful and spot on. The itinerary made it easy to plan our days as little of our own research was required. However, more information and updates should be done for Koh Phi Phi (many of the recommended restaurants have closed) and Railay Bay (very limited information provided). Hello Island was meticulous in their approach to our needs. I would gladly go on another Hello Island planned holiday.

Dear Remmert and Team

Thank you for a fantastic trip. All arrangements were 100% spot on and all travel vouchers/arrangements in perfect order. Such a pleasure to work with someone that attend to the finer details of a trip. Well done. More than just a Travel Agent. Walking the extra mile for your clients was a big surprise to me. Looking forward to my next trip with Hello Island.

I will recommend you to anyone looking for excellent service.

Once again, THANK YOU,

The entire holiday was absolutely amazing, with an incredibly unique hotel stay at The Nature Phuket, with all arrangements on point from the Hello Island team. The travel guide also proved to be extremely useful, with us enjoying many wonderful meals and activities from the recommended list.
The Hello Island team were quick to respond throughout and always had a good understanding of the entire process and all requirements.

Prien Veerasamy

Cannot recommend Hello Island enough. Remmert is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!
When I first saw reviews, I was super skeptical because I’ve never seen anyone with all 5 star reviews but I would definitely give more stars if I could. We had some mishaps with our airline upon our departure and Remmert spent his entire Sunday sorting everything out and making alternative arrangements so that the rest of our trip would go smoothly. Seriously cannot thank you enough, Remmert.
Everything was so well organised and just made the flow of our trip so easy. I’ve BEEN recommending you, will continue to do so, and will undoubtedly use your services again.


Hello Island organized our honeymoon and it went off without a hitch. So many little details put into our trip that we did not expect and extra miles gone by Remmert that we greatly appreciate. Our trip to Thailand would not have been as amazing and headache free as it was without the help of Remmert and the team at Hello Island. We will definitely be using your services again in future.

Hello Island was a fantastic tour agent for our recent Thailand holiday to Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi. The digital booklet they produce was most informative and fantastically put together. We highly recommend them to any one interested. Thank Remmert

Rieger van Rooyen

A big Thank You to Remmert Malan and Hello Island for an amazing trip to Thailand. We enjoyed every moment without having any concerns of organizing our time set aside to visit Thailand.

Choosing Hello Island to plan our first trip to Thailand is the best decision we could have made! All the arrangements, hotels and transfers were great! We had no troubles whatsoever and they provide you with all the information needed to have a stress free Holiday. Thank you Remmert and team for all the effort you have done to ensure we had the best trip to Thailand! Will definitely recommend Hello Island, without a doubt, to anyone who wants to go to Thailand!


First time out of the country and Wow what an experience it was. Thailand was Beautiful, Amazing and Wonderful, it really is the Land of Smiles. Hello Island did an Awesone job, package was outstanding. Thank you ❤️❤️

Denver Jordaan

I’m impressed by the efficiency with which my logistics were arranged. There was never any uncertainty about pickups when I arrived and left. The hotel booked were beautiful and met my expectations. The travel booklet made life very easy for me. Thank you Hello Island to make my first international vacation memorable.


Best trip ever, I will definitely do it again. Going to Phi Phi Island was the highlight for me. The night life was lit!!! Canoeing was the scariest adrenaline rush of one of the activities we did while we were there.

Cikizwa Mafanya

I will never book another holiday to Thailand without using Remmert from Hello Island. The entire experience was amazing. They organised absolutely everything and even sent a message saying that we had been checked in on our Bangkok Airlines flight. Using Hello Island tool the stress of traveling out of the equation and allowed us to have the best holiday ever. You simply cannot book a holiday to Thailand without Hello Island. They are simply the best. Thank you Remmert and team. Will definitely make use of you again!

Brilliant trip. Will definitely be going again and will book through Hello Island. Highly recommend them. They made the trip seamless and stress free.


A huge thank you to Hello Island (Remmert and team) for their extreme professional service, advice and assistance given to us over the last 2 years. They were always promply available (day or night) to assist with our queries and bookings. They kept us updated with every aspect of our long awaited journey even through the dreaded Covid isolation period. We did not loose a cent of money during the 2 years. We got way more than what we expected and paid for. We have not just found our only booking agents in Hello Island but made friends. Through Remmert we met other wonderful people in SA and in Thailand. We had no issues with the travel nor accommodation when we planned and started our wonderful journey.
We recommend Hello Islands to everybody that requires a professional and honest travel agency. We will be booking again soon with Hello Island for the next trip with our family to Thailand.
Thanks again for the awesome service.

Beste diens wat ek nog ontvang het, baie dankie julle!!!


Thank you very much to Remmert and his team at Hello Island who made this 14-day trip to Thailand an unforgettable experience. From the very beginning, all the way through to the end we received 5-star service from Hello Island. The booklet provided was a great help and saved us a lot of time and effort of having to research the best restaurants, beaches and day trips. Excellent 5-star service and good value for money.

Jaco Voges
Managing Director

At first, we were very skeptical to put our trust in an offer on Facebook and more especially in a company that we were not familiar with. Gosh were we completely wrong. Needless to say, we had THE most amazing holiday ever. From start to finish, Remmert was absolutely superb. He kept us informed every step of the way and the information that he provided with regards to Covid requirements, tests etc was on par. We kept all our documentation as he had suggested and going through the airports was nothing short of an ease. Remmert was absolutely professional and answered all my numerous emails and enquiries timeously. I would highly recommend using his services if you ever want a peace of mind holiday. Thank you Remmert for making our holiday an unforgettable experience. We are eternally grateful to you.

Warm regards

Tina Moodley

In today’s times its so hard to get people who really care. Thanks so much for being such a wonderful caring company.


Effective,proactive and effortless!
I can’t recommend this travel agency more…they are simply awesome. Arranging the best package patiently taking me through the process step by step, answering all my questions, Remmert and his team are just great!
Thank you for making our trip to Thailand pure joy!
Truly a memorable experience.

Janine Maxie Loock

We have just returned from the most amazing 14 day trip to Thailand organized by Hello Island, although this was our 9th trip to Thailand we have never used a travel agent, I saw Hello Island on Facebook and saw the Promotion for THAILAND ISLAND HOPPER WITH BANGKOK trip. I contacted Hello Island and Remmert took over organizing everything. The attention to detail was amazing, We thought that travelling during Covid would be challenging but by following Remmert’s list of all documents that we would need it went so smoothly, we stayed in amazing hotels, all transfers were on time & the recommendations were great. We enjoyed every minute of the 14 days and would not hesitate to recommend Hello Island to anyone. They go above & beyond all expectations. Thank you Remmert, You are a Star *****


Trip to Phuket and Phi Phi went off perfectly.
Remmert and team made flawless arrangements. They took the hassle out of the paperwork required for covid travel. They afford you the personal service.
This agency is top of my list for the next holiday.

Feizal Dildar

I wanted to find out more about holiday packages and I had the best service. They guided me over all packages. Thank you for the friendly services.


Out trip was organized in a very professional way. We were informed of things to do at each island from start to end. Our transfers and hotels were of the highest standards. We will recommend Hello Island to any one who is interested in travelling to Thailand.


Thanks to Hello Island, Remmert you in particular.. We had such an amazing, vibrant, busy, funny, romantic, crazy trip, exploring the South of beautiful Thailand.. Everything worked, everything was planned and on time, accessible and I can highly recommend your influence, suggestions and expertise.. Will remember this one for years to come.. and no we didn’t wear masks.. We only washed and sanitized our hands.. #corona

I would like to thank Remmert Malan for planning a great vacation. The booklet was amazing with all the information one needs for the trip. For organising all the transport with taxi’s, ferries and planes. He even sent our boarding passes a day before we left so we did’nt have to stand in line for booking in. Not once did we wait for our driver. They were always waiting with a name bord! Thank you for booking great hotels in great locations. We will defenitly make use of Hello Islands in the future.

Engela de Jager

Fantastic experience once again.
All arrangements like clockwork

Had a great time and everything was planned well, thank you for a great service

Mbongiseni Mbatha

I just came back from my 11 night Island hopper holiday. It was an amazing stress free adventure. There were a lot of logistics in terms of my itinerary from flights, transfers, hotels, ferry’s etc. Remmert and his team from Hello Islands took care of it wonderfully. Everything they promised was delivered. Even when I was in Thailand, they were in constant contact with me and still advised me on how I could maximize my days in each part of the island. Hello Islands have and in-depth knowledge of the Island which was really helpful to me. Their pricing came in way cheaper than other quotes I received from other travel agents. I enjoyed my trip so much that I cant wait to book my next Thailand experience with Hello Islands.


Great service from the team. Painless and fast booking experience. We did the 10 day Andaman Island hopper…Great experience, and all the shuttle pickups and hotel bookings were just on point and no issues. Lots of useful info as well on what to do on each island!

Hi all!

Thank you for such an amazing trip! Your travel pack with all the documents and suggestions along our trip made such a huge difference.

Ansunell Jacobs

The service provided by your company was phenomenal. The team was very efficient, effective and always willing to go the extra mile to make the trip an absolute pleasure. Remmert was a star, he was pro active and always available to assist. From our first engagement to getting back home safely was effortless and easy.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone, they take ownership and remove the stress and admin associated with traveling abroad.

A big thank you for making this trip a memorable experience. We will definitely be using you for our future adventures.


WOW!!! What a fantastic holiday booked by Hello Islands. I have and will continue to recommend using Hello Islands for all your Thailand Holidays. Thank you Remmert Malan for everything, from the Travel Itinerary, to sending us holiday tips and to skipping the checking queues and going straight to the bag-drop/web checking counter. Definitely the best service I have experienced. Looking forward to booking our next trip with you.

Shelley van wyk

This was our first trip to Thailand and were super impressed with the way our enquiry and booking was handled by Hello Islands from beginning to end, everything ran 100% according to schedule and what we were promised we received. We would not hesitate using their services for our next visit to this area or recommending their services to other potential travellers to Thailand. Picture is the view from our cottage at Bay View lodge, stunning. Regards Craig and Sally Smith

Craig Smith

Hello Islands, I would like to thank and congratulate you on an absolute professional and exciting experience.

I can’t wait for our next trip!!!
Thank you, Hello Island.

Jennifer Tomas

What an amazing trip. Thank you Remmert for all the arrangements. Was well planned and coordinated. It truly was a hassle free holiday. Remmert was totally amazing with the itinerary and suggestions on what to do and where. I highly recommend Hello Islands and will most definitely use them again for future holidays.


Thank you Remmert and Hello Islands Team – Our trip to Phuket, Phi Phi Island and Krabi was absolutely amazing. Remmert and Kiyla had everything planned out perfectly. The digital travel booklet is all you will ever need when booking a holiday with Hello Islands.

Kerusha Pillay

Thank you for an awesome holiday. Starting right at the beginning with your awesome digital itinerary. It was so helpful and informative. The agents in Phuket, PhiPhi & Krabi were so helpful. There were absolutely no hick-ups or glitches in the travel arrangements. The people handling the transfers were always on time and easily visible. The hotels were well located and top notch. Thank you once again for a hassle-free, fun and awesome holiday…. It’s a Pity you couldn’t do anything about the weeeeak rand. Just kidding.
Will definitely recommend you guys. Let us know of any special packages for next year….. Thank You !!!!!!!

Anwar Akram

Loved the hotel we chose. It was an amazing holiday!

Kirsty Drake

What a wonderful experience with Hello Islands and Remmert. Thank you for the professional service and attention to detail. All the arrangements and hotels were top class. The personalised travel booklet and updates during our travel made it even more memorable.
Well done!! Our trip was absolutely fantastic.

Maude Hugo

From the first day I made contact with Hello Island I received friendly and professional service. Everything was done for us from our departure in Cape Town and returning to Cape Town and not once we had to worry about any problems and only concetrated on enjoying our holiday in Thailand. The hotels we stayed in was very nice and the staff was very friendly and helpfull. Phuket and Krabi is very beautiful and we visited the islands and have done a lot of shopping to bring back nice presents and made a lot of memories and will never forget this holiday. Many thanks to Remmert making it possible for us and will definitly make use of your service again and recommend you to other people also.

N de Kock

Thank you Hello Island for a wonderful amazing trip. All 4 of us, aged between 39 and 67 enjoyed every moment. It was very well organized, our transfers and ferries were on time or waiting for us to arrive. I’ve already told my family and friends to get in contact with Hello Island to make their Thailand dreams a reality. Now to unpack the over shopped suitcases…

(We did the Andaman Island Hopper tour, Phuket-Phiphi-Krabi and would recommend this to any first timers wanting to go to Thailand)


Wow what a well thought trip Hello Islands organized for me and my friends(group of4). They really are specialist in the travel industry. The suggested Islands and excursion were just well suited for each Island. They arranged transfer transport was as per what we were expecting. Truly appreciative of the assistance in arranging this trip I would recommend your services to anyone wanting to travel abroad


The trip was amazing where every detail was taken care of – from the different modes of transport to the beautiful accommodation to the Birthday messages and cakes at each venue. Remmert you and your team really excelled in every possible way. I will highly recommend anyone who wishes to visit Thailand to make use of your services. Regards Diane

Diane Ritson

Package was excellent all hotels were smart and staff friendly . Transfers were all on time real luxury means of transport would recommend this trip anytime.

Poonie Pillay

Remmert has been incredibly helpful. I am still amazed by how well he planned our Trip to Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi. Due to the somewhat low price we paid (in my opinion), I did not have the highest expectations. However, all my expectations were far exceeded. All flights, accommodation, breakfast and ferry trips were included and of really good standard. We enjoyed the Bay View Resort at Phi Phi the most due to its incredible views from the rooms, however each hotel/resort had something special about them. The digital travel booklet is ALL you will need when booking a holiday with Hello Islands. I kept it on my phone and visited it daily for recommendations on where to dine and what to see and do. Remmert, you made our dreams come true, I will never forget this trip to Thailand. I have several bruises and scars and a lost toenail as evidence of the fun I had LOL! I highly recommend Hello Islands and Thailand – the locals are incredible and all destinations we visited had an anything-goes-vibe. In my opinion, Thailand offers really good value for money, especially the massages. Thailand has more spa’s/parlours than we have taxi’s in SA. For the best massage I would recommend the beach massages on Long Beach in Phi Phi and the All day massage and sea in Ao Nang. If you’re young and up for it, you should not miss Bangla Road in Phuket for a night out you would never forget or the CentrePoint in Krabi, 3 levels of bars, nightclubs and restaurants and Cabarets by Ladyboys with the biggest boobs I have ever seen lol!

We certainly hope to be back, but secretly hoping Remmert starts to offer packages to Brazil as that is where we hope to go in 2020. Happy travels!!


it was breath taking. well done team on the organizing it.


This was the best trip we ever had and it is undoubtedly due to Hello Islands and Remmert ! Everything was planned to the last detail, we were always on time, we always had plenty to do ! They guide you day by day and this allows you to make the best of your holiday! Thank you so much for helping us create this ultimate long lasting memory ! I have not heard of anyone else, who enjoyed Thailand us much as we did ! If you need to go to Thailand, book with Hello Islands, you won’t be sorry for even one sec !!

It was a trip to remember. My sister and I met Remmert Malan in February 2019 at a restaurant in Oude Westhoff. After that meeting we put a deposit down and for 6 months we paid off the rest for our trip to Thailand. We left on 24/7 and came back on 18/8. When we landed untill the 4/8 we visited Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi. The professional service we received from Hello Islands was outstanding. From the paperwork received for your transfers, drivers that were always on time to pick us up for our transfers and amazing hotels we stayed at. I give it ten stars. On the 4th we flew to Pattaya to visit a friend and although this part of our journey was on our own Hello Islands made it so easy for us by booking our flights for that part of our journey. Thailand is beautiful and safe. Coming from SA it was so refreshing to be just 2 ladies out having a good time and nothing to fear, day or night.. A million thank you’s to Remmert and Hello Islands. Thank you Thailand for a beautiful and stunning holiday.

Sandra Carelse

Love love love!! Everything was so well organised! I was amazed at how the transfers to and from locations went so smoothly EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! We enjoyed every minute of it. You really took the worry out of travelling to an unknown country. I loved Phi Phi Island the most! I couldn’t get enough of the BayView Resort in Phi Phi, offering everything I wanted out of an island holiday. Thank you so much! The itinerary given was really helpful and information rich. A map of where the hotels you are staying at, indicating things to do & places to visit’s location would be an added plus to the travel booklet. Other than that, we will definitely be recommending Hello Islands to anyone and everyone who will listen. We are already planning our next trip with you 😉

Tania Kleintjes

As a final year university student this was my first time travelling overseas but also my first time travelling without my parents. As you can imagine there was potential for this to be an incredibly stressful experience but Hello Islands made it an absolutely seamless and unforgettable one, all we had to do was show up to our flights and everything else was taken care of. The hotels, transfers and ferry’s that were all booked by them were all incredibly fantastic, and we could not have done better ourselves. Our incredible holiday would not have been possible without them. They offer a service like no other and using their service is a must if you are planning to travel to Thailand.

Nicole Pottek

From the very first phone call I made to Remmert I knew I was dealing with someone that really knew Thailand and all the needs of a tourist. A huge “THANK YOU” for the most amazing holiday that my daughter and I have just returned from. We made wondeful lifetime memories! From the planning of the trip, the flight bookings, and the beautiful hotels we were booked into and the transfers that were so well organized, enabled us to have a holiday that went off absolutely hassle free. The restaurants that were recommended were excellent. I would and I will recommend Hello Island to anyone wanting to holiday in Thailand. Value for money you cannot beat. I have started saving for my next trip that I will definitely be booking through Remmert and Kiyla from Hello Island.


Thank you Remmert and Hello Islands Team – we had an amazing holiday in Phuket.
The accommodation at Seaview Patong Hotel was perfect and we would love to stay there when we visit Phuket again, in future.
We will however, never ever travel with Etihad Airways again. The flight travel time was killing us, because the seats are so small and uncomfortable. Their service and food are terrible and definitely not what we are used to on other airlines (and we travel a lot).
But thanks again for your professional assistance with our booking.

Archibald James Hanekom

It is with great pleasure that I write to you to share my recent Thailand experience.

At the outset, I must declare that I was incredibly apprehensive entrusting a relatively unfamiliar agency to book my island getaway. But boy was I proved wrong!

From my first enquiry to my last boarding pass, Remmert and the rest of the Hello Islands team were always on hand to tend to every concern of mine, however great or miniscule it was. I cannot begin to convey what a relief it was to have the team on hand at every stage of the vacation and preliminary stages (an unexpected service to be honest). It allowed for a relaxed and carefree holiday experience. With the bulk of the administrative matters having been lifted off my shoulders, I was able to bask in all of Thailand’s richness and beauty. I thank the team for affording me an unforgettable experience that has left an indelible mark in my memoirs.

The thorough, chronological compilation of the digital travel booklet made for a simplified reference point throughout my journey. Having had transfers booked in advance (that too with reliable and quality service providers) ensured easy commute between the different stages of the trip. It’s easy (perhaps inevitable) to get swindled as a foreigner in this context, and this simple strategy served a much needed protective mechanism.

The calibre of accommodation booked was appropriate across the islands visited. The living conditions were sufficient to provide a clean and peaceful haven of rest after busy days of touring. It must be noted that minor plumbing issues were experienced in Phi Phi, but were tended to swiftly.

The professional and timeous culture of communication exhibited by the Hello Islands team has left a lasting impression on me. I will not hesitate to engage with the agency in the future for personal and/or referral reasons.

Here’s to a job well done!

Jivanesh Chetty

I cannot speak more highly of the service rendered by Remmert and team, Hello Island. My Family and I just got back from our holiday
and we had a blast. The planning, accommodation, transportation was excellent . My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would highly recommend Hello Island to all for their professional service and making our holiday an epic one.


Excellent planning. Care-free. Super cool. Lovely to not have to do anything yourself. Attention to detail.


All went very well, arrangements from Hello Islands was top class, best we had, with full pack of information and guidance. Very professional.
The stay at Seaview Hotel Patong, was also great, check in was smooth, and the rooms neat and tidy. Willingness of staff to move to another room when aircon was problematic. Food and drinks was excellent, and overall the staff is very friendly and helpful, Yunita, Toy, Roberto, Jonathan who sings for us, and all the other staff members, cannot mention all the names, were very friendly and helped feeling at home there. Thanks again for Remmert who did all the arrangements. Wish i can invent time travel, flights is so long.


Amazing honeymoon


This was amazing! Easiest overseas trip that I have ever been on, as the Hello Islands team took all the hassle and guesswork out of the equasion. Booked us into the most beautiful hotels in the most convenient locations. I highly recommend booking your Thailand trip through this company!

Jan Louis Theunissen

We used Hello Islands for a vacation to Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi in May 2019. Remmert was helpful and prompt arranging same. Everything was planned to perfection. We had no hitches what so ever. The places we stayed at were amazing. I would highly recommend the Hello Islands Team.

Well Done!!!

Megashlin Naidoo

Dear Hello Island! Thank you for organizing a wonderful family vacation for us. All the accommodations were spot on and transfers from place to place allowed us to see Thailand the way we never would’ve if we’d just flown from one place to another. We will surely make use of your services in future.

Lineve Franks

Well done “Hello Islands”!! I was very skeptic booking a trip through a face book add that I saw!! Well let met tell you, that was the best decision ever!
From the word go – I only have had amazing service from this Company! So professional and quick with their replies, no matter the question.
The Trip was just next lever for me! The Hotels were great and offered a full breakfast – which was a bargain for us traveling with 2 teenagers! Every day we have had great excursion – some of them were “Bucket List” events, like bathing with Elephants and giving them a scrub!! We truly enjoyed every moment and will highly recommend Hello Island and of cause visiting Thailand!! Thank you for an amazing experience!!

Desire le Cointre

Remmert and team were amazing. We did a very late booking for July holidays 2019 and were still able to get great rates for a family of 7. Choice of accommodation was great at all three destinations and flights, transfers and ferries were all on time and hassle free. We even made a late change to stay longer on one island which was organised promptly with no penalties. The personalised digital guide we received upfront had all info we needed with flights vouchers travel info etc etc. All we had to do is have our passports ready. I will definitely use Hello Island again.

Hennie mentz
Chief Executive

This trip was absolutely incredible. Thank you to Hello Island and team for the perfect planning etc. Service was first class all the way…….


Hello Islands gave exceptional service and backup. Communication was always clear ,understandable and very helpful. Suggestions of places to visit ( digital book) and things to do with estimated prices what to expect was very helpful. Hello Islands even managed our check in for the return flights. We encountered a problem with the one hotel ( hotel made an error ) and Hello Islands was just a WhatsApp away and problem was sorted in 10 minutes. Thank you for a great Holiday experience.

De Villiers Boshoff
Logistics Manager

Remmert en sy span se diens is fantasties. Alles het sleep glad verloop. Ons is dankbaar vir die heerlike vakansie en ons moes nie oor enige iets stres nie.

Erika Harvey
Rarionship manager

Remmert and his team were amazing there were always available and quick to respond, the trip was very organized and made traveling a dream. Their advise and structures in our booklet really made a huge difference to the experience, and our resort in phi phi was beautiful. Will definitely be using Hello Islands again.


If I could I would rate you 1000000 stars. The trip the service received both on the trip and from Hello Islands was truly amazing. I’m definitely booking all my aboard trips with Hello Islands.

Kind Regards


Your arrangements were exceptional. We were first time visitors and at no time did we feel stressed. Everything Happened as arranged with no exceptions. We found the travel booklet complete in all aspects.
Should we decide to visit the Islands again we would make our longer stay Krabi and the rest to follow.
Thanks again for all your assistance and arrangements whenever required.
Vlakkie & Naomi


Feedback on the 2019 Vacation.

Since booking was made with Hello Islands, all were taken over and taken care off. The digital travel booklet made it all crystal clear on what to expect. Then came our vacation, we were checked in by Remmert and Team which assisted a lot. This already helped a lot.

I can never say that I was disappointed in any way whatsoever as all arrangements was in place with any enquiries handled and sorted within 10 minutes.

My personal opinion, never will or shall I recommend any other company to take care of my travel arrangements. Hello Islands is doing one great job and I am glad to make use of their services.

Remmert, 2020, we will do this again and take some more people with us.

Once again, a huge thanks to you and the team for all you have done, making our vacation a dream.

James Ellis
Correctional Officer

We have just returned from our trip and would highly recommend Hello Islands.
Everything was absolutely perfect and we had no glitches along the way.
All our flights, transfers, accommodation and communication were outstanding.
Thank you for arranging our amazing holiday.
Hope to use you folks again for our next one.!


WOW! What an incredible experience. My husband and I booked the Island Hopper package for our Honeymoon and we had the time of your lives!
The Hello Islands team were just amazing, everything was organised so perfectly, all we had to do was enjoy the trip and we certainly did!
I would highly recommend Hello Islands to pretty much anyone and everyone who will listen, we were absolutely blown away by the service offered.
Thanks team, you made our Honeymoon the absolute BEST adventure!

Christy Pretorius

We had a wonderful holiday. The Nature Hotel is stunning. Lovely swimming pools and a bar in the pool. Heavenly in the heat! Would definitely recommend it. There is a lovely market directly across the street, where we enjoyed lovely fresh food.

Tracy De Bruyn

Thank you so much Hello Islands me and my gals had time of our lives at Phuket. You made everything easy for us from the day we contacted you, throughout the planning, hotel was beautiful and central located to everything. Lastly how can we forget that you even checked-in online for us while we enjoy our last day.
We really had a great time, thanks for all the information provided it really made our life easier at Phuket.
Hello Islands is the best.

Mbavhalelo Manavhela

Well organized!


This is the first time in our lives we have actually booked a package deal trip and have travelled to over 20 countries on our own in our lives. From the get-go ie even the initial enquiry phase, the service provided was personal, immediate, comprehensive and accurate. The holiday itself was perfectly arranged and all the transfers were on time and the hotels we stayed at were superior to what we tend to book when making our own arrangements. I only have praise for Hello Islands and have already widely recommended them to friends and family!

Cheryl Le Roux

So well organized and planned to perfection!
I cannot wait to go again hopefully this December !
Beautiful places were chosen for us and so happy with Remmert and his team

Angela Alderton

WELL DONE !!! Our trip was absolutely fantastic. Every Hotel was clean and service was excellent. The transport between hotels and island was perfect and on time. I was sceptical in the beginning but you amazed me with how organized the whole trip was planned and the constant updates during the trip.

thank you very much for a fantastic experience, we loved it.

I will definitely be using Hello Island for my next trip… You guys are amazing

Demari Gouws

Thank you for the amazing service that you gave us from the first contact and until we finally returned home. The whole trip was so well organized with flights, transfers, accommodation, regular updates and guidance and recommendations. Our only disappointment was the Bay View Resort at Phi Phi which is a little rundown and in need of some TLC. However the hotels in Phuket, Krabi and Bangkok exceeded our expectations. All in all we had the most amazing holiday and will definitely recommend you to friends and family

Naiem Ally

Our honeymoon was perfect, very fun, delicious food, great hotel & transport and awesome activities. Thank you for being so on point with the delay to Phuket, that was also a blast.

Social worker

Absolutely wonderful trip. Thank you so much to the Hello Islands team for putting together our dream island holiday, we loved every second of it. The highlight of our trip was definitely the days spent at Phi Phi. I really want to emphasize the organisational effort from Hello Islands, we did not experience one single glitch throughout the whole trip, starting with transport between the airport and the hotels, as well as transport between the different destinations, to the hotels bookings themselves. I will recommend Hello Islands to anyone who will listen and definitely turn to you guys when we plan our next trip to Thailand.

Emma Fourie

Wow!!! Hats off to team Hello Islands!!! Every single detail was so well taken care off and we could not have asked for a better-planned trip!!!
I’ll just go ahead and ramp that 5 stars up to 10!!!
Thank you Hello Islands!!!

Anna Knoetze

the trip was well organized and easy to navigate through the itinerary. the pick ups were always ahead of time and never late. the emergency contact that was provided was fast and very supportive when we accidentally left one hotel with our room card, quick arrangements were made to avoid us from paying any penalties. with the transport and accommodation so well organized and on a time schedule we were free to worry about what fun stuff to get up to over there rather than worrying about check ins and flagging down the cheapest taxis… all and all what an amazing trip.

Francko Lamprecht

Will recommend your services to anyone. Trip was well organized and we had the best time in Thailand!


The trip was not only amazing thanks to the beautiful scenery of Thailand, but also in great part to the exceptional arrangements made by Hello Islands. From the moment we booked everything was handled smoothly and we had no issues with transport etc on the trip. Hello Islands even did our online check in for the return flights and sent the details to us.
I would recommend using them for every trip planned to Thailand!

Rena van der Merwe

Thanks to Hello islands for a well organized trip.!!There was not one single problem with our booking, flights, transport to and from the hotels etc. Thailand is truly a wonderful place visit with friendly people.. Will definitely visit again one day. Thank you Remmert and to everyone that was involved in making our holiday such a wonderful experience.

Willem Scholtz

2nd time on holliday with Hello Islands in Thailand and even more memorable that our previous one….Thank you so much Remmert for all your hard work and effort and planning to make our Thailand experience better and better every year…Word of mouth spread and all over we hear people came to visit Thailand via ‘Hello Islands’ and we can see the people trust and love the way you guys work. Keep up with the package deals, 10 days were great, but a 15 day package deal for end of April 2020 will be better as we just got on a high with our holiday then we need to return to work again. (LOL) So much to do and see and we are still not done….Simply love our holidays with you guys.

Leonie Herbst
VSB Clerk

Thank you very much for an awesome holiday. Everything was well planned and we felt like VIP’s. Was a bit disappointed with the hotel at Phi Phi and the fact that their swimming pool was under construction, but other than that, everything was just great. Thank you!!! Will definitely recommend you to our friends.

Wanita Uys

What a wonderful holiday, Every arrangement worked smoothly and exactly as one would want when moving around a country you cannot speak the language and those around you do not speak english. We got each place on time and every connection flowed fairly smoothly. We had a glorious time of snorkelling particularly at Koh Kradan.

Dudley Anderson
Pastor Milnerton Baptist

Best holiday ever, Krabi was the favourite as it was much quiter than Patong. Loved every minute


Thank you so much to Remmert and his team for a very well planned trip. We were satisfied with our accommodation and all the other extras eg like the online check-in did not go unnoticed. You really made our trip hassle free! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts ♥️


Thank you very, very much for an amazing trip, and a great experience. The team at Hello Islands has done a spectacular job at arranging it all. Everything went very smooth, from airport transfer to taxi and ferry transport.
I can highly recommend booking a trip through Hello Islands.

Rudolf Nagel

This was our second trip to Thailand, but I think it was also the best trip. Everything went smoothly, nothing was out of place. All we had to do is follow the instructions on our digital travel booklet. The booklet also contains allot of information that made the trip more enjoyable. Hello Islands also provides you with a number you can contact while on holiday, if you have any concerns or questions they respond almost immediately.

I can highly recommend using Hello Islands as we met other people on holiday that also booked through them and everyone was very pleased with their service.

Project Engineer

Wow, what an incredible first time experience made possible by Remmert and his team from Hello Islands. The attention to detail updates and reminders and seamless transfers exceeded my expectations.
From Phuket, Phi Phi, Krabi, Koh Samui and Koh Tao the resorts selected by Remmert were of a high standard. The suggestion to include Koh Tao to our travel was the best suggestion ever. We had the most amazing snorkelling experience anyone can imagine.
There are honestly no words for how grateful we are to Remmert for his assistance with my small accident in Koh Samui and needing to go to hospital. Thank you for the excellent insurance cover, your extremely professional manner in which you dealt with us and always being available to take our calls.
Thank you for an “unforgettable-best organised-didn’t have to worry about a thing”holiday.

Evelyn Louw

We had an awesome experience from the booking, the constant updates and remainders, the seamless transfers and the great locations we stayed at. The trip we booked with Hello Islands far exceeded the expectations i had in mind. Thank you to the great team that planned our beautiful and unforgettable trip to Thailand.

All arrangements made by Hello Islands on our behalf worked like clock-work – the Hotels was excellent, the transfers always on time – Thailand was a fantastic experience enjoyed by the whole family!

We traveled to Thailand. All the arrangements worked out just fine. Would recommend them to everyone.

We had a wonderful holiday filled with fun, sun and activities like sightseeing, snorkeling, swimming, boating, shopping good Thai food and many more. All arrangements made for us was excellent and seamless. Well done Remmert and Team, you guys are the best.

Gerhard Burger

We went to Thailand for our honeymoon and what an experience it was! We had the best time and Hello Islands made our trip absolutely unforgettable! What a pleasure it was choosing you to organise our trip for us. Everything ran smoothly; from flights, hotel and ferry transfers to the hands on support we got from you at any time we needed it. We would like to thank you again for making our trip such a pleasure, we will definitely recommend your services to our family & friends!!

Thank you so much for a well organised trip and experience. Never had to stress about a transfer and with all the info provided one can really plan an awesome holiday. Thank you sooo much! Cant wait to book my next trip with you!

Lerina van Heerden

As always a hazzle free and worry free holiday with excellent service from Hello Island’s staff.. thank you Remmert and Kiyla.

Johan de Necker

Traveling to Thailand was a life changing experience in many aspects. I’m glad it all started with me choosing the perfect travel agent to organize my travelling bookings, that was the best thing I did. The entire tour was without fault, from our point of departure to arrival and back. Hello islands choose the finest options from pick up shuttle to arranging the most professional agency in Thailand when booking islands day tours when we arrived. On the other hand Thailand is a world on it’s own, nothing like what we normally see in SA. It’s a naturally beautiful country, with humble people, crime free and quiet affordable….I would go back there again, definitely…I loved every moment.

Monaketjane Thakgatjo

It was an experience that we will not forget. Hope to do it soon.
Thanks for fantastic arrangements done by Hello Islands.
Well done!!!!

Ansie van Heerden

Good Morning, this was an awesome trip, the organizing was outstanding, the service from Pat was unreal, she went out of her way to assist with day trips, questions, advise and assistance when I forgot my telephone in the transport on a day trip, I got it back (That was unreal to believe…). The rooms you booked for us was great, we had perfect sea view. The hotel staff is very pleasant and helpful. We want to thank you and will certainly book trips through your company again, We will also recommend it to everyone. Remmert Malan, thank you for all you did. Kind Regards. We will send a group photo of the 4 of us later.

Good Day Hello Islands,
We thank you for the Phuket 10Nights Promo which was good value for moneys spend. All arrangements for our trip to Phuket where excellent and professionally executed. Flights with transfers to and from Phuket Airport where absolutely on time with no hesitation of when, where to or any discrepancy of relevant coupons issued to us. Our Hotel, rooms and breakfast, where of high standard and we where treated very professionally. We highly recommend Hello Islands and we will definitely make use of your Agency again in future. Hello Islands arranged a trouble free holiday with a life time memory.

Kind Regards

Theresa, Wolfgang, Sandy and Wally

Theresa Kapp

Excellent, loved it and all went according to plan.

Well done


We had the most amazing trip thanks to Hello Islands. This being our first trip overseas we were quite nervous about pretty much everything. Hello Islands helped us by sending info about stuff we did not even think about eg. Phrases to say, average price of things and online check-ins.
We loved every moment of our trip and things ran so smooth.
Thank you Hello Islands!

Anja van Deventer

What an amazing experience and lovely trip,everything was planned perfectly and we had no trouble at all. The hotels were lovely, the breakfast was nice and we really had a good time. It was definitely worthwhile and I would recommend Hello Islands to anyone that is going there.

Elecia van Marle
Beauty therapist

Our trip with Hello Islands was amazing…
Excellent, Friendly, fast service and responds without any delays.
All the bookings were spot on.
Definitely value for money and worth every penny.
I will do this again and will advise everyone to make use of HELLO ISLANDS!!!
Well done!!

Stienie Coetzee

Had a very nice vacation, would highly recommend Remmert and his company. From leaving Cape Town till coming back everything went smooth sailing.


WOW! What an fabulous trip, everything was planned to perfection! Thank you so much to the Hello islands team. Hubby and I had the perfect getaway thanks to you. You will definitely be highly recommended by us.


As we were first time travellers It was amazing visiting Thailand.. We were well informed about things to do and places to see due to a superrr digital book by Hello Islands.. There were no delays or any problems with accommodation, transportation etc..We would definitely recommend Hello Islands to everyone..definitely the BEST!!!!!!!!


Wow! What a fabulous holiday!
Thank you Hello Islands for our outstanding trip; organised superbly and with attention to every detail.
A holiday we will always remember…


I had the most amazing holiday creating memories to last a life time. Thank you to Hello Islands. Everything was perfectly organized and our group of 10 did not even have one minor hiccup. Your personalized travel brochure helped us immensely. I will recommend you to anyone who would want to holiday in Thailand. You service was way beyond expectation.


Myself and my partner had the most incredible time. HELLO ISLANDS made our trip completely unforgettable by keeping us informed about all important aspects of the trip the entire time. Everything was organised for us leaving us to enjoy our holiday, stress free. We are so impressed and will definitely be using them again!

Daena Abbott

Hello Islands gave really good service from day one. They were always willing to answer my 100 questions and very friendly to assist with anything. Our hotel at SeaView was great and we had a great view from the balcony. The service there was also very good. We had a wonderful holiday and would make use of Hello Islands again. Thank you for everything…


I can honestly recommend Hello Islands for all your Thailand arrangements. I am happy with the service and everything was spot on. Thank you Remmert.

Nico Gerber

Baie dankie vir puik reëlings rondom ons Thailand vakansie. Alles wat in plek, die akkommodasie was baie goed en die vervoer in Phuket en op die Phi Phi eiland was so goed georganiseer.

H. Stander

We absolutely enjoyed our trip to the beautiful Thailand, from the arrangements to the people in Thailand meeting us and making our stay a memorable one.

We would like to give big kudos to your company for the arrangements you made for us, with everything being well organised and all on time. We had the time of our lives and will most definitely be making use of your services again.


Wayne and Fidelia Draai

Wayne Draai

Wonderful time! Worth the money. Strongly recommended.

Riana van Staden

One of the greatest holidays of my life. Me and my family had the time of our lives. The Hello Islands team are without a doubt the most professional travel agency we ever dealt with!!!! Everything went smooth! Highly recommended!!!


This was our first time using Hello Islands to book our recent trip to Phuket. From our first interaction we knew that they know their game and we would recommend them to all our friends and family. What we really liked was that all arrangements was done on our behalf (airport and hotel pickups, ferry tickets etc.) and there was not 1 time when we were left stranded or even had to wait for a pickup. The digital booklet we received before our trip with all our travelling details as well as very handy tips and suggestions was great. Your restaurant recommendations was spot on and the resorts you partner with are great. Charm Resort in Patong is beautiful and new and the rooftop swimming pool was a real treat after a long shopping trip. Bayview resort on PhiPhi Island was comfortable and in a great location, with views you cannot fault. Bluesotel in Krabi was also brand new and so close to the beach. Thank you team Hello Islands for making this trip so memorable. We will definitely use you again in future. Regards, the Theron family

Jacques and Mimette Theron

Our decision to let Hello Islands handle our travel arrangements for our recent trip to Thailand was probably the best one we’ve made this year! What an incredible experience to deal with Remmert Malan and his team. Who can still travel for just over R1000 per day? With Remmert you can – he gave us the best deal ever. And all our travel arrangements were perfect – from the amazing and helpful digital travel booklet to all our transfers and hotel bookings everything was simply perfect. Thank you to Hello Islands for making our holiday an unforgettable event. We will definitely use your services again.

Elsabe Barlow

We had an amazing experience all thanks to Hello Islands. It was so convenient to book through them, they made everything so easy and all we had to do was enjoy the holiday. Anyone looking to go to Thailand should book through them! They have great packages, are affordable and communicate efficiently.

Marizanne Pretorius

Excellent trip. Everything was exactly the as promised. Will definitely be travelling through Remmert and team again!

Byron Petzer


I would like to Thank Hello Islands for an amazing travel experience. My husband an I had a fantastic time. Everything was well organised and people were very prompt an efficient, I only have one recommendation if muslim couples/families travel it would be great if they let the hotel know in preparation for their breakfast. Lucky for us the staff at the hotels were very accommodating they prepped our breakfast (to be more specific omelets an eggs were made in separate pans) were no pork was made in but a halaal option would be fantastic

Other than that we had a blast
I would highly recommend them and definitely look forward to booking my next trip with them to a different Destination

self employed

We had a great trip.
Hello Islands organised everything to run like clock work.
The flights, transport, ferry rides to island and the hotels was way beyond our expectations.
Thanks to Remmert and co we had a lovely trip and would recommend them highly.

Farid Mohamed

Remmert Provided everything that was promised. Lovely hotel with excellent staff who were a pleasure to deal with. Had a brilliant time and would not hesitate to book with Hello Islands again anytime. Well done guys.

Rob Lorraine and Kaie Wilson

Thank you for an amazing trip!!! This trip was so well planned and organised.From the time I received my first email of enquiry till the day we landed back in S.A after the holiday. Not only did we have the most amazing holiday but the continued support and enquiring of Hello Islands as to our check in at the airport as well as our well being in Thailand. Hello Islands even went the Extra mile, by arranging that our flights be moved up by 2 days so we could spend 2 just as amazing days in Dubai after our Thailand trip. Thank you Hello Islands for a wonderful holiday!

Kaeen Rossouw

An absolutely amazing holiday. It was well organised and we only had to turn up as everything was already put in place. Accommodation was fantastic!!

Remmert was available on short notice despite the time difference and able to offer support when needed. Will definitely recommend them

Heidi Oosthuizen

To Remmert and the Hello Islands team
Five stars! No words to express my appreciation for the wonderful trip you arranged. The islands we visited was beautiful, our hotels was excellent. Our transfers went as smooth as butter. Remmert immediately responded when we needed him. Thank you so much! We are definitely going back to Thailand.

Aimee Jasson

The best trip ever. Thank you for arranging it with such precision. Everything was on point from flights to hotels and transfers. Everything was just on point until we returned. You didn’t miss anything and we never had to ask for anything. Everything was planned perfectly.
You are the best and I can’t wait for you to plan my next trip. XOXO


The trip was great value. Everything was well organized. Their was a good choice of locations. The accommodation and food was very good at the price paid. All bookings and plane, ferry and car transfers went smoothly. There was not one problem.

Erick Hamman

I can not recommend Hello Islands enough. As first time travelers, we encountered so many hiccups before even leaving the country, mostly with issues at the Dept Home Affairs. The Hello Islands team were patient and reassuring throughout.
Our holiday in Thailand was INCREDIBLE. The digital travel booklet supplied insightful tips on how to get the most out of our trip, and again the team went above and beyond in assisting us with check-in’s, etc. I also appreciated that we were contacted every step of the way from the days leading up to our departure to our arrival in Thailand.
We are already planning next year’s trip, as the island has so much to offer that we could not possibly have experienced it all in only 10 days, and will absolutely make use of Hello Islands again and again.

Marisa van Beeck

Good day

THIS REVIEW IS WAY OVER DUE BUT HAS TO BE POSTED. We were fortunate enough to have a trip to Thailand booked by Remmert and his team. We initially went the normal booking route through Flight Centre, Pentravel & StaTravel but they all had a issue with our budget and what we had planned to see/do or just never bothered getting back to us. My wife found Hello Islands through Facebook (BY LUCK) and decided we should have a look. We gave them a call and asked if they can come up with a package that suites our needs. He mentioned we should have a look at their packages and see if something caught our eye. Sure enough they had exactly what we wanted, Phuket, Krabi and Bangkok all in one. We amended a package slightly and went ahead and booked. Our complete trip was 14 nights in total including all flights, transfers and accommodation. They gave us a complete itinerary in the form of a digital travel book which made us feel like we knew exactly what we were in for. The whole process was stress free as Remmert was so professional and helpful throughout. We had a number we could contact/WhatsApp at any time if we needed advice or help in any way whilst abroad. We had a trip of a lifetime and we will definitely be using Hello Islands again. Thank you once again Remmert for going the extra mile and giving us the BEST holiday we could have ever imagined.

Kindest Regards

Conrad & Tracy Koorsten

Store manager

Myself and 7 friends went on a 18 day trip to Thailand. We visited Phuket, Phi Phi, Krabi, Koh Tao and Bangkok.

It has most definitively been the most amazing trip and experience of my life thus far!

Hello Islands (Remmert) has been so professional from booking our trip to checking in with us throughout our trip to see if we’re still enjoying ourselves. Even when we had trouble with a ferry company, accidentally cancelling our ferry, he was quick to contact us (after hours) and arranged other transport and immediately refunded the cancelled bus&ferry transfer.

The attention to detail that went into our travel booklet blew my mind and it was super helpful throughout our trip as all the questions that came into my head was answered as soon as I opened the booklet.

The hotels he booked for us were amazing and all at great prices!

I thank Remmert for his amazing service and I’ll definitively make another booking through Hello Islands in the near future!

I cannot recommend Hello Islands highly enough!

Stefan Vermeulen

Wow. What an amazing adventure. Everything was perfectly organized and all recommendations from the Hello Island Team were spot on. My daughter and I planned to travel alone, however my parents decided to join us. I was so relieved to have support on our trip and loved the quality time we had together, but … if they hadn’t joined us – we would have been 100% fine. Everything worked to clockwork and all experiences unforgettable. Thank you Remmert and Hello Island Team. We will be doing it again sometime in the future ❤️

Robyn Seymour
Operations Director

Thank you Hello Islands for ‘n wonderful time. You organised everything the best anyone could do. Since we departed from Johannesburg everything went so smooth and well. I believe no agency could do it better! The hotels where we stayed were top class and the services were very good. Well done Remmert! Ek sal deur niemand anders ooit ‘n toer na enige eiland bespreek nie, ek wens julle het wereldwyd toere gereel. Ek sal julle beslis aanbeveel by almal wat ons ken. Nogmaals dankie vir ‘n wonderlike tyd!


A fantastic, cost effective holiday and everything it was advertised as. We cannot thank Remmert and his team enough for their attention to detail in the organisation of this trip suffice to say that Remmert took the time and trouble to make our arrangements on a public holiday way back in March! All transport worked like clock work with not one hitch. Resorts were well prepared for their guests and one was always greeted by wide Thai smiles.We chose the 10 day package with 6 days Phuket, 2 days Phi Phi with the final 2 days in Krabi. Our positive critiscism would be to try and spread the days more evenly over the 3 resorts. All resorts had fantastic accommodation in great locations but of the 3, the resort in Phi Phi could do with some attention to maintenance as the grounds and approach to it appeared scruffy. This however did not detract from the beauty and our stay on this island. This was our third visit to the area and possibly the best way of doing it, through Hello Islands. The presentation of holiday literature and travel documentation is superb. Thank you Remmert and team. We highly reccomend your company to others who wand a taste of Thailand.


Dankie Remmert… Als het volgens plan uitgewerk… Ons het dit baie geniet!


We had an amazing time! Thanks so much for a well organized tour. The hotels was spot on. Not once did we wait for a transfer or was not sure where to go. The instructions was clear and easy to follow. The information emailed to us beforehand also helped a lot. Congratulations in a job well done. We will definitely use you again in future. Jaco & Sonnika


Just came back from a 10 day Patong, Phuket & Phi Phi island trip. From the digital book, to tickets and transfers, checking in with us on every new hotel visited, Remmert gives an impeccable service. Will make use of Hello Islands for our next visit. If you go to Thailand, it’s the company to use for sure.

Ricky Ehlers
Swim instructor

I would like to thank Hello Island for the best organised holiday I ever had. We never had to worry about anything just enjoy our holiday. I have never seen any travel company that is so organised and on the ball. You guys are the best!!!!!! Thank you so much for all the info and checking up on us all the time to make sure we are ok. You are simple the best.

Admin Manager

Absolutely awesome service from Remmert. The attention to detail and constant updates certainly made this a holiday to remember. The remoteness of the Escape Beach Resort came as a bit of a surprise but since we were only there for a short time it was lovely. Seaview Patong remains my all time favourite for Thai travel. Thank you so much Hello Islands – this was an amazing holiday.

Patricia James

We had the most remarkable holiday every thanks to Hello Islands team for such a well-organized trip. This is something my wife and I would talk about for a very long time. We would never be able to pull off such a fantastic trip ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of our trip, there is so much to see and do in Thailand.
This was really a trip beyond our expectations and would like to once again thank Remmert and his team for making this possible.
I’m really looking forward to doing this again.


Traveled to Thailand end of June for the first time and what an AMAZING experience. The Hello Islands team is amazing and make sure you don’t need to worry about anything. I highly recommend them. Our accommodation was comfortable and air conditioned (best ever) and the food was yummy.


Thank you for the excellent service. I will definitely refer you to other people.

Michelle Dixon

Baie dankie Remmert dit was uitstekend gereël…

Clyde Rutters

It was a lovely trip, well organized and it helped a lot not to worry about transport all the time. We enjoyed the trip!

Karla Beyers

Super amazing trip that was well organised. The locations and the duration at each location were perfect. The transfers were always on time and drove well kept vehicles. The Data pack sent out with the flights were extremely useful and well used.
Remmert and Team sent us reminders about our transfers and even went as far as checking us in.

I warm thank you to Hello Islands and Team


Thank you for organizing an amazing trip. Everything was given thought clearly and worked out perfectly. Will use your services again.

Karin Kamfer

What an amazing trip it was!!!
From start to finish, the service we received from Remmert was amazing. The tour itinerary was great, the hotels were beautiful and getting to our next hotel/location was done so effortlessly. Excellent value and so much to do and see. We would like to thank you and we look forward to booking with you again soon.


Awesome trip. Great customer service from Hello Islands. Will use them again. Thanks guys.

Morne Nagel

The best!!! So well planned. Will most definitely make use of Hello Islands

Lindy Van Der Merwe

By far the best travel agency we had the pleasure of booking a trip with. Thank you for the (always) friendly assistance and the follow-ups. We will make use of your great service for our future adventures as well!

Marilene Wessels

Our trip was on the 26 May 2018 to 8th June 2018, from day 1 we had an amazing experience everything was organised and it felt like we have been to Thailand before cause everything was easy. I will recommend Hello Islands to my friends and family and everyone who will read this review,You not going to regret booking a trip with these guys.

Thank you so much 200% satisfied

Masana Mahungu

We had a great holiday that was well planned and arranged by Hello Islands. Our entire holiday ran according to plan and as per the itinerary supplied.  Not once was any transfer, pickup or arranged time delayed in anyway – everything ran like clockwork. The pre holiday booklet supplied was of great use and assistance. Others travelers could not believe all the important information we had been supplied and wished they had had the same service we enjoyed.
Will we use Hello Islands again – FOR SURE
Thank you for all the advice and assistance it was very much appreciated.

Mike van Alphen

To all warm weather travellers.
I have never experienced such professional, friendly, warm and caring service from another travel agent or group. Truly go beyond the call of duty and the personal touch in communication really makes a trip even better. The very current and relevant information personalised booklet and updates during our travel such a treat. It might have been low season due it not being sunny everyday but one does then get less other tourists and a few really good sunny days to come home brown and rested certainly a bonus. Will be back sooner than later and certainly use Hello Islands in future. Thanks to a great team. Grant and Bonita

Bonita Benyon

Trip was amazing. Favorite destinations was Phi Phi and Krabi.
Will do it again.

Susan Geral

Thank you Hello Islands, you’re truly the best. We had a great time in Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi.


It was great!!! Everything was well organised, our transport were on time, our transfers went smoothly and the hotels were first class. Thank you it was worth every cent.

Ronel de Lange

Our trip was an amazing experience from the start of the booking process right up until the end, when we had our online check-in automatically done for us! The hotels were all very good, all with a very nice breakfast every day and our transfers were all very good and always on time.
Visiting Thailand was always on our bucket list and thanks to this very affordable option we were able to do it. We found that each of the 3 islands had something different and special that made it very interesting. We would definitely recommend to book a trip to Thailand with Hello Islands, its an example of what service is and should be. Kathy and James Page

Kathy Page

We really enjoyed our trip!!

Everything was organized really well and the arrangements like shuttles, hotels and pick ups went very smooth.

Stayed and nice hotels and resorts.

Well done to Hello Islands!!

Stefan Nel

The arrangements made by Hello Islands were excellent. All transport arrangements from the airline to the shuttle and ferries were perfect. The hotels were top class, clean and comfortable. Service at hotels were excellent but in Phi Phi the concierge needs to improve their service. The location of the hotels were central so that one could walk/commute with ease. I would recommend Hello Islands to anyone who needs to travel to Thailand. They definitely know what they are doing! Well done, you have our support!

Carla Lange
Senior Administrator

It’s was so awesome,,,everything well planned and organized..thanks

Charel Anker

Best service and made the holiday pleasant with all the little extras they do. Will definitely use you guys again


Hello Islands has been an absolute help to me on planning my first solo trip. Remmert was excellent and everything was given to me in no time, my trip was memorable, hassle free and affordable. Hello Islands makes sure all your questions are answered, they give tips and suggestions and make sure you are comfortable and taken care of at every point. Thank you Remmert for the amazing service!!

Nikita Nagin

Wonderlik! Hello Islands se reispakket met die elektroniese boekie is puik. Alle inligting was voorsien aan ons en het ek presies geweet wat om te verwag. Die reelings van hulle kant was perfek. Die e-pos wat ons ontvang het by elke eiland se aankoms was ook onverwags en baie doeltreffend. Ons kon die inligting regtig gebruik. Ek kan Hello Islands enige tyd met n goeie hart aanbeveel. Remmert en sy span, dankie al julle werk word waardeer.

Erika Harvey
Relationship manager

Absolute amazing experience and holiday!! Definitely going back next year.

This being my fifth trip to Phuket, Thailand, I always return feeling thoroughly
The hotel we stayed in was very enjoyable with friendly staff. The breakfasts
were more than adequate for our needs. The Seaview Patong hotel suites us
just fine as the location proves to be perfect with no excessive noise at night.
Our rooms were cleaned every day and the aircon worked perfectly.
It also was a pleasure dealing with Hello Islands as all our bookings and airport check inns were perfectly accommodated and ran very smoothly from being picked up from the airport and checking out.
We will definitely use your company again and we will recommend you to friends and family.

WOW!!! What a fantastic holiday booked by Hello Islands. I have and will continue to recommend using Hello Islands for all your Thailand Holidays. Thank you Remmert Malan for everything, from the Travel Itinerary, to sending us holiday tips and to skipping the checking queues and going straight to the bag-drop/web checking counter. Definitely the best service I have experienced. Looking forward to booking our next trip with you.

Shelley van Wyk

This was one of the best holidays we have EVER been on. From the promptness of the booking to the follow up by Hello Islands. The hotel was great as well.

This was a holiday worth every cent.

Mike Forsyth

This was an amazing getaway/ Honeymoon, we had a great overall experience. We were worried about the accommodation, but the two hotels that Hello Islands booked for us in Phuket and Bangkok was incredible. This holiday was real value for money.


Our trip to Thailand was flawless from start to finish. Hello Islands are the most professional team of experts that I have ever encountered.

My husband took ill while we were in Phi Phi islands, and one WhatsApp to Remmert from Hello Islands received attention within 10 minutes, and we were able to extend our stay in Krabi.

You guys are phenomenal !!! Thank You

Sandra Adams

Wow what a great experience we had in Thailand and all thanks to Hello Islands and Remmert for being so on point.
From the day we made our booking till the day we arrived back home. Remmert was there to make sure all went well with every arrangement from transportation to bookings.
With Hello Island it felt like we were their only customer.
Thanks Hello Islands and Remmert for making Thailand our best destination thus far.
Will most definitely use them in the near future and will recommend others to use them for there professionalism and value for money.

Extremely well organised, continued information and assistance. I would highly recommend Hello Islands !!

Dear Hello Island Team

From the outset I wish to thank the Hello Island Team for their professional assistance and guidance with the arrangement of our Thailand Island Honeymoon.

It was magnificent to say the least!

The Hello Island team arranged everything to the last bit of details which meant that neither my wife nor I had to worry about anything.

The Islands (Phi Phi, Koh Samui and Koh Toa) were fantastic and not even to mention the beautiful hotels that we stayed in! The Islands, Thai culture and beautiful landscape and environment were simply breath taking to say the least! Definitely a trip that I would advise to anybody to add to their bucket list if you haven’t already been there and also worth more than five star rating!

The Hello Island team and staff truly made our honeymoon worth every cent! It is truly a holiday which we will never forget and still remember for the years to come!

Once again thank you for everything!

Quentin van Huyssteen

Awesome trip. Planning was great. Thanks Remmert

Nico van Vliet

As newlyweds on honeymoon my wife and I decided that we are not interested in a “backpacking” or similar experience and were merely seeking a “everything arranged” experience for our honeymoon.

Hello Islands provided exactly this and with almost military precision, all we needed to do was to be at the right place at the right time and everything else was up to us, no hassles with finding a taxi or a ferry trip, everything was an end to end seemless experience with handy “to do guides” and introductions to Thailand, I will most certainly be visiting Thailand again and Hello Island’s will be our first choice.

Konrad Tjaden

This was a lifetime experience and every thing was as planned.
On time Transfers.
I will recommend Hello Islands to all my friends.

Thanks for a trip we would not forget.

It was our first overseas trip and we’ve enjoyed every moment of every day. The trip was arranged by Remmert the trip advisor from Hello Islands. It was done in an excellent and professional way. We didn’t experienced any delays or problems. We were very happy with our accommodation in the various hotels. We recommended Hello Islands for anybody to make use of their excellent service. Book your holiday through Hello Islands and sit back and relax. They are very professional. Thank you for an excellent holiday!

Thank you so much to Remmert and Hello Islands for organizing such an amazing trip for our group! They were highly organized, experienced in what they do and friendly! Right from the beginning Remmert remained in contact with us and was very professional in handling all logistics! That digital booklet was so handy and become a useful reference guide for everything we needed to know.
Thank you so much for giving us to this amazing holiday! We will see you soon!

Training manager

Everything with respect to the trip was pre-arranged. We did not have to ask anything about the trip. Transfers to and from the hotel was on time and the agent in Phuket called about 15 minutes after we landed in Phuket to check if we were fine. A holiday without any concerns and well worth the money spend. Will recommend to anybody.

Paul Grobler

Hello Islands with Remmert and Kiyla Malan deserves more than a 5 star, as these guys simply went out of their way with prefect planing to make our Thailand trip a memorable one. From the moment we made contact with them, trust were build and Remmert kept us up to date and explained procedure with such patience. Piece of mind when we received our digital printed booklet with our flight tickets, airport transfers, ferry transfers etc and you can test them….Hello Islands service even get better when you are out of South Africa and arrived in Thailand. Drivers awaited us at the airport ready to take us to our hotel room. Not one single time, did we have to wait for a driver or struggled with a booking as all were taken care off. From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you guys for all your time and effort and patience, and believe me we will definitely refer Hello Islands to everyone we know as you made our holiday extra special with all the arrangements you took on yourselves and we could just catch the flight and go with the flow and enjoyed the ride…and not many companies can praise them-self on this….so Hello Islands are one in a million !

It was a wonderful experience! Thank you for all the preparation. From the flights to the transfers and all the information and suggested tours. Never having to worry about shuttle service that’s not gonna be on time. Hello Islands you are the Best!

Vela Naude

The Holiday was amazing, both of us had such an experience of International travel. Our destination was amazing, could not asked for anything more. We are already start think to travel more to this type of destinations.

All arrangements and pre-trip information was very helpful and informative.

Thank You very much to Hello Islands, especially to Remmert Malan.

Jaco du Preez

We have made use of your services last year June and now in 2018, just arrived back last week from a wonderful holiday. We had an amazing 2 weeks and I would once again thank Remmert Malan, who did our booking, for the whole package, from making the booking (which I requested only a few weeks before leaving), till we flew back home. Everything, once again was organized to the T. No problems or stress with flights, taxi’s, transfers or accommodation. Thank you so much for going the extra mile with your explanations, the travel booklet and sms’s and taking the extra stress off and letting us just relax and enjoy. And by the way, the inclusion of Koh Lipe was absolutely wonderful, a paradise for snorkelers.

Anita steyn

This was the most awesome experience ever. for us. I am glad I chose Hello Islands. Everything was professional and I will definitely use them in future and refer them to friends and family.

Fransisco Esterhuizen

It was our first visit to Thailand and the trip was amazing! Hello Island did an outstanding and exceptional job. Everything was TOP service from the very beginning consultation of trip/booking to the planning and organization of the entire trip. We have been looked after through our entire journey, questions/request have been answered promptly and service delivery was excellent!Special kudos to Remmert, this man truly demonstrates pure customer obsession!Thank you! The only reason why I am not rating 4 star is because a couple of our accommodations were very old and hello island should possibly include more accomodation options in their packages. Nevertheless I am going to plan my next trip with hello island again, this is 100% certain. It was a pure pleasure to deal with very competent staff and a highly professional company!

sabine gumpert

We had the best time ever, it was our first time as a family to go overseas with our two girls. I was very scared at first but with all the arrangements done to the T by Hello Islands (Remmert) I could now relax and enjoy the trip ahead. All the hotels we stayed at was fabulous with our favorite being Koh Tao, and Koh Samui, oh wait Phi Phi to. Forget it all was fabulous. I would definitely recommend the Hello Islands team to Plan your next hassle free holiday to Thailand. Thanks again for the wonderful memories we were able to enjoy because all the other things were taken care of by Hello Islands.



Pieter Coetzer

Thank you for excellent arrangement of our trip and accommodating our change without any issues. We really enjoyed our trip and your daily recommendation whiles we were enjoying the islands were very helpful. The Crib hotel in Phuket Patong is good for people that enjoys the busy night life – it was very close to the night market and the mall which was convenient – however the smell at the hotel was terrible in the passages as well as in the rooms that are looking out over the night market. The staff were friendly and the rooms were good. We had a lovely trip and will recommend your services to anyone that want to enjoy an island trip. Thank you

Annemarie J v Rensburg

You always see these pictures of Thailand and think, only in pictures, but I must admit my expectation was blown away , by the amazing places and how convenient we were lodged, to all the AMAZING places near us.

We were treated like kings, and there wasn’t one moment we felt anything bad could happen.

My honest opinion is best trip ever!!

Project superviser

Brilliant, Awesome, Best time of our lives. Thank you Remmert for organising it all. Everything went smoothly and we had a great time.


Thoroughly enjoyed our trip! Very well organised and no hassles whatsoever. All the info we needed in order to enjoy our holiday, we received. Many thanks to the Hello Thailand team!

Amy Strydom

Booking our Thailand trip through hello islands was the best decision we made. Our trip was absolutely amazing!! And the best part was that we had nothing to stress about as hello islands planned every detail. We got to experience every aspect of Thailand from paradise living in Phi Phi to hustle and bustle in Phuket. The accommodation provided was above all expectations and I honestly can’t fault anything. We were totally impressed with the service provided. I can’t wait to book our next holiday and would fully recommended hello islands, especially Remmert who was just a click away and was always so helpful.

Tamon Cafun

Wow – what a well organised holiday. Hassle free and relaxing knowing that all hotels, transfers etc were taken care of. Would definitely highly recommend this company – even though we have been to Thailand 4 times previously it was a pleasure knowing we just had to énjoy’ ourselves.
Thank you so much

Sandy Rhodes

We did the 4 Island hopping trip and it was amazing!!! This trip is perfect for a couple or a group of friends that are looking to have some fun and relax at the same time. I would recommend this trip & Hello Island agency to anybody. The trip was planned excellent!!! Thank you very much!


Truly a 5 start trip. We had no trouble with any of the arrangements made by Hello Islands and Remmert always responded to any queries or question we might have. We will definitely go on a Hello Island trip again in the future 🙂


You guys did an outstanding job of having all the transfers, etc, booked and on time. The hotels were great, the follow up regarding what to do and online booking for the return flights from your side, was a great help and much appreciated.

We had a great time and can thoroughly recommend anyone using Remmert and the Hello Islands team to book your holiday.

Excellent service and attention to detail. Much appreciated. Well done guys

Grahame Cilliers

Our trip to Thailand was an absolute fairy tale holiday. Hello Islands arranged every movement and all the accommodation. All the hotels were of a good or great standard an all the transport arranged by them were always 100% on time. We did not have any problems during our island hopping trip.
I would like to recommend Hello Islands to everybody that wants to visit Thailand to arrange it through them.

Sakkie (SJ) Pienaar

This is definitely the best travel agent! Their organization is excellent and you can enjoy a stress free holiday with the knowledge that Hello Islands have everything sorted!

Merike Jansen

Thanks Remmert and Hello Island for the well planned trip. We loved the abundance of information about our destination which helped us prepare very well for our trip and know attractions to visit. The logistics were well planned, our trip went very smoothly. We’ll be calling again for our next trip. Job well done.

Ntobeko Mogadime

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip, and all your assistance before and during the trip. You blow us away with your customer service.

Ooh well Phuket, you put us in a good hotel. The rooms were very spacious and linen was fresh n white. Could not ask for anything more. The breakfast was ooh so comprehensive and delicious.
Bangla road always on flick, Day trip to Phi Phi Islands was the highlight.

Well Bangkok was lovely for its shopping – and nightlife at Khaosan road. We are going back for this one to shop properly. Chatuchak Market was on steroids, nothing like it.

Thank you again, we had zero issues in this trip and all our service providers were on point. We definitely recommend this trip to all and especially your services.

Portia Nnzeru
Restaurant owner

Very well organised holiday thanks to Hello Islands! They put together a pack that has everything you need from travel bookings, hotel bookings and info as well as information of what you can do at each place you go to, and all in order. This takes a lot of stress out of the travelling! I would recommend buying a local SIM card when you arrive at an airport, we got a dtac Happy Tourist SIM which worked perfectly, we used it a few times to find the drivers for the transfers between hotels and airports. The travel booklet from Hello Islands also provides other useful info about your destination such as what ATMs to use or what the respectful things are to do when visiting a temple. We really enjoyed our time there. Thank you Hello Islands for being so helpful and proactive!

Ross Anderson

What a beautiful holiday destination. I will and do recommend Hello Islands to everyone I meet and know. A dream holiday. Many thanks for your excellent organizing.

Ian & Ria Smith

If you are planning an island vacation, this was the a most stressless, organized to a T, vacation a have ever booked through an agency. Thank you Hello Islands, especially Remmert for the constant updates and re-confirmation by telephone and e-mails before and during our trip. Even all the tips of our different destinations were spot-on and very helpful. All travelling, pick-ups, drop-offs went excellent even though some flights and ferrys were late. Had a wonderful break-away to lovely places. Thank you

Anita Steyn

Thank you Remmert and Kiyla for an absolutely, hassle free holiday. Our bookings and transfers were impeccably done. I had an awesome holiday in Thailand without having to worry about pick ups , drop offs or flights and ferries. Job well done. Hope to travel with you guys again ….soon

Johan de Necker

We would like to thank you for the incredible experience, from the flights, transfers, accommodation and locations. The package which we booked was excellent value for money and would definitely recommend Hello Islands to others in future as well as use you again.

Shaun O'Brien/Roxanne Sutherland

We had a lovely holiday! All the arrangements worked out perfectly. The Thai people are friendly, helpful and service-oriented and the rand goes a long way. Our favorite island was Koh Tao and we enjoyed exploring it’s lovely beaches on our hired scooter! Thank you to Hello Islands for very professional service and useful advice!

Margot and Malcolm Livingstone

This must be the best holiday we have ever experienced. Top class service with a 1st class digital handbook. Everything worked out like clockwork and the family enjoyed tremendously. The only critique we have is to ensure that families with very young children are well aware of the very long trip from Koh Toa to Phuket by boat/bus. In addition, we recommend strong warnings regarding mosquitos at Koh Tao. Apart from this, we will highly recommend Hello Islands to all friends and families.

Thank you, Ruben, Joey and Ziva

Ruben Reddy

Thank you Hello Islands for organising an AMAZING holiday for us to Phuket, Phi Phi and Krabi! The hotels were fantastic and all the transfers were excellent. A huge shout out to Remmert Malan for his professionalism and patience and for going the extra mile when there was a delay with Qatar airlines… I will definitely book with Hello Islands again!

Sharon Jardine

The absolute best holiday experience of my life. Have done a fair bit of traveling but never experienced a package that delivers peace of mind and takes away the stress when traveling so well. Excellent value, service and the most amazing memories!!!

Adriaan Swart

This Thailand trip was the trip of a lifetime, together with all our best friends. The planning that was put into this trip is unbelievable. Flights, Busses, Ferries, Hotels. Everything was in place as we arrived after long trips.
From Street parties and PingPong shows in Patong. Riding Scooters, visiting water parks and Lady Boy Cabarets in Koh Samui. Yacht Trips with a never ending clear ocean and the most amazing prepped lunch. Beach parties on Koh Phangan and sleeping in awesome bungalows right on the beach. Then came PhiPhi!! Late, Late nights and not so early mornings. Walking up to beautiful view points overlooking almost the entire island. Walking through the streets one could shop for days, foot massages, Thai massages, head massages – these I miss the most. I bet we all wished this holiday would never end, however it did and I’d book another trip with Hello Islands in a heartbeat!!

Carmen Botes

Best organized trip with no hassles. This was not my first trip to Thailand and Hello Islands by far made this a trip to remember. From the flights to the hotel transfers to the bus and ferry trips we had no worries.
After all our research, by far the best prices out of all the travel companies for sure!!
Thank you to the whole team @Hello Islands for your professional service!
See you soon for another trip!

Christo Wepener

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing…Best vacay ever..!!

Marlo Maree

What an incredible trip of a lifetime. The level of organisation and planning was world class. Can’t wait to do another one

Dirkie Uys

Thailand trip with Friends.

Booking my trip
Booked a trip with Hello Islands in 2016 and was overwhelmed by the outstanding service and quick response to my queries. We even got a booklet with all details to our 2-week trip. An awesome extra that I did not expect.

The trip
Landing in Thailand for the first time I did not know what to expect. Walking out the Airport door our shuttle was waiting for us with my name on it. He was very helpful and a great driver ( something in Thailand that you will appreciate ) The rest of the trip was smooth sailing with no booking problems at the 6 different resorts we stayed. A must is booking all transport with them as it made life hassle free on the trip.

For any Thailand holiday, I will use Hello Island from now on as they are very well priced and service is excellent.
