All I asked was a luxury trip and Sahil and Hemanth planned the itinerary according to how i want it. In Singapore we stayed in Parc Sovereign Tyrwhitt which is near to little india, a place where we got our vegetarian Indian food. In Maldives, we stayed in Centara Ras fushi spa and resort which was a very good choice as we felt emotional while leaving the place. We got lot of Vegetarian options there. We had an awesome experience and came back with lot of memories. Thanks to SHS holidays and to Sahil and Hemanth
Hemant ji thanks a ton for making such a beautiful arrangements. Its was an awesome experience.. i had booked a honeymoon package for maldives .. shs holidays is very professional team. They kept their word and made my holiday awesome…
Booked our honeymoon trip to Maldives through SHS.
Trip was simply AWESOME. They are very good at providing options based on your budget, being a honeymoon couple we had a free upgrade to luxurious villa with private pool. I would like to thank agent Hemant who made it possible with no issues at all.
Smart holiday shop helped me plan the best possible honeymoon trip! Special shout out to Hemant for all his help/suggestions/planning for this trip. From Paradise resort to Atlantis Dubai everything was top notch! Prices offered by Hemant were 30-40% less than all major tour operators like sotc, Cox etc. I highly recommend their services.
Went for our honeymoon to Maldives and stayed at Paradise island resort and spa. Ultimate experience from start till theend. Credit goes to smart holiday shop for providing excellent service at affordable rates right from speed boat pick and drop facility up to having our Garden Villa upgraded to Superior Beach Bungalow, within the resort. Hassle free travel! Quick to respond!

We are from Bangalore and had been to Bali and Singapore for a family vacation. SHS had done good arrangements and we really enjoyed our vacation. All credit goes to Hemant.
