An Interview With Manisha Badiani

How many years have you been selling travel?

I started my career in India as a travel agent in 1988,specializing in international ticketing. After I moved to Canada, I pursued my career in travel and broadened my expertise into vacation travel. I am very passoniate about my work and truly enjoy helping people realize their dreams.

What are your hobbies?

I love reading, dancing, travelling, and hanging out with my friends and family. Being active is a big part of my life...so, I love to exercise 3- 4 times a week doing various classes.

What type of resort activities do you favor? ie water sports, lounging by the pool, etc?

I love an active holiday, rather than laying back and doing nothing. But, when I do go to a resort, I appreciate how relaxing it can be. My kids love hanging out at the beach and taking part in different activities offered at the resort, and we not only do that but also like lounging out by the pool,beach and indulge in a couple of excursions.

What are your favorite destinations?

I absolutely love Paris. I think it's such a beautiful place and offers a lot of different things to do, with their neat cafe's etc. I also love Spain and Germany. Singapore is another of my favourite cities. I visited Cuba in 2015 and the beauty of the beaches, people and weather really warmed my heart.

What languages do you speak?

English, Hindi and Gujarati

Do you have a family? and if so what type of family travel have you done?

I have a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful girls. As a family we all love to travel and therefore we make a point to travel every year. I have been to Florida ( Disney and Universal studios etc. ) two years in a row. We have been to India several times. We have done Cuba, Mexico, Paris, London ( England ), California, New York, Caribbean cruise,Vancouver and Calgary ( Banff, Lake Louise etc ), Washington D.C and this summer, we are going on the " Oasis of the Seas" with Royal Caribbean.

Testimonials

  • "Hi Manisha, Very nice vacation! The resort, service, the food and water sport was excellent. My husband's not an easy one to please and he was very happy with the recommendation. We had a wonderful time. It's a beauty. " - Client feedback from visiting " Sandals Whitehouse "
  • " We had a fantastic time, it was all if not more than we expected. First off you and Princess did an unbelievable job making this the most efficient and smooth vacation I've ever experienced. There wasn't one stop or change that wasn't executed flawlessly. No matter where we were going or what we were doing it was laid out for us clearly and correctly. Alaska was amazing there is no way to describe it and pictures just don't catch the grandeur of it. I would recommend everyone visit Alaska at least once and I would unhesitatingly recommend you to make the arrangements. " - Alaska Cruise - Feedback from client
  • "Hi Manisha! Thanks for your interest - very nice of you. The resort was absolutely amazing! We had a very hard time leaving when our week was up. To be honest, I have no complaints - we would definitely go back, as well as recommend the Majestic to others. We went on one of the excursions offered - you take out a Dune Buggy and make your way to a cave that you are able to swim in that is 25 feet deep - what an awesome experience! Our girls had a fantastic time and were able to see outside of the resort. You were so much help in planning this trip and I thank you for that. You made a wonderful choice for our holiday! Thanks so much!!! " - Majestic Colonial - Mexico
  • "Thanks for the welcome! Laura and I had a great time, the hotel in Istanbul was amazing and the tour with MeliTour was amazing. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and taught us about everything we wanted to know. Our first guide even took us out for a night on the town! I would greatly recommend the private tour for any of your future clients, as we were able to take as much time as we needed in each place we went. Istanbul is definitely somewhere my sister and I will be traveling again. The only thing I would say about Kusadasi is that it is much more of a resort town than we were expecting. Not bad, just that we preferred to be in the atmosphere Istanbul provided. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We feel like everyone needs to know about how great Istanbul is. Thanks again for all your help. Sarah " - Istanbul - Client feedback
  • "We will give you more details when we are back but this trip has been wonderful with great logistic and amazing hotels. Thank you so much for your help on this one. It's been my best vacation with Martine since a very long time and we will definitely come back to Greece. This is a picture of our suite in Santorini where they gave us an upgrade when we arrived and the service at Myconian Ambassador was just the best. " - Greece - Client had an amazing trip !!
  • "Hi Manisha, Sorry about taking so long to get back to you. The trip was excellent. Flying into Puerto Rico was great. Great times and great flight was great. The ship was spectacular. I think the entertainment was the best I have seen. There was always something to go watch and see. The food I thought was very good. My least favourite spot we stopped was Barbados. Pretty poor spot but now I have seen it. We did an activity in every port and enjoyed most of them. Weather was good and we met lots of great people on the trip. A lovely group of 8 women from Ottawa. The star of the trip was the ship. It was beautiful and comfortable . I have kind of lost track someone asked me what it cost. WhT exactly did we pay for the trip cruise and air fare. Thanks a lot for the great trip and all your expertise. We did take a tour of Puerto Rico on our last day before heading to the airport. It was very ni ce also. Thanks again. Sharon" - Southern Caribbean Cruise - Celebrity
  • "Hi Manisha. It is our final day at Excellence Riviera Cancun and we wanted to let you know our vacation has been brilliant. This resort has been amazing -- thank you so much for the recommendation. This is a first class resort where the service, food and drink is exceptional. They acknowledged my birthday in several ways including balloons in our room, birthday cake, special sweet treats in the evening and during the afternoon, they found us out on the beach and delivered champagne and chocolate mousse. " - Excellence Riviera Cancun - Client loved it
