Tell about your summer holiday for a chance to win a trip to the Maldives

Sunday, 26 July 2009 14:27

So. How was it for you? Was this summer’s holiday the best you’ve ever had – or an experience never to be repeated?

Good or bad, we want to know the details. Did you go somewhere you’ve been before or did you try somewhere new? Did you, perhaps, discover a fantastic little trattoria not mentioned in the guidebooks? Or did you queue for hours to get into an attraction that turned out to be a waste of time? Crucially, was your holiday good value for money? Or were you fleeced at every turn?

Whatever you got up to – or get up to in the coming weeks – tell us about it and we will publish the most useful and entertaining accounts in this section and on our website in September.

The sender of every submission will also be entered in a prize draw to win a week’s holiday for two at Kurumba, an idyllic private island resort in the Maldives, courtesy of Kuoni (01306 747022;, one of Britain’s leading holiday companies, with over 100 years’ travel expertise.

The prize

The sender of the first report chosen at random after the closing date (see below) will win seven nights’ b&b for two in a Deluxe Bungalow at Kurumba, one of the most modern and well-established resorts in the Maldives. Conveniently located just a short speedboat ride from the airport, Kurumba boasts some of the region’s finest facilities, top-class service, superb food and high-quality restaurants.
