Meet our founders...

Ismail Ahmed

Ismail founded Paradise Isle Holidays based on a vision years ago to start his own travel company. Originally from the Maldives and having grown up in Sri Lanka, Ismail is a fun-loving entrepreneur with an easy-going nature and natural charm which earns him the respect of many who cross his path. With over 24 years’ experience in the aviation industry, Ismail has always been adept at making critical decisions and sound judgement calls under pressure, in time-critical situations.

Paradise Isle Holidays provides the perfect opportunity to combine his passion for aviation and travel with customer service excellence. Drawing on his strong sense of business acumen, Ismail manages the company with the focus and discipline instilled in him from his aviation background.

Melani Ahmed

Melani started travelling from a very young age. One of the most exciting of her journeys was an overland trip from England to Sri Lanka, undertaken with her parents during the winter of 1976. By the age of 28 she had lived in 4 different countries spanning 3 different continents. Melani is both outgoing and friendly, as she has been used to engaging with people from a variety of cultures and traditions from early on in life. With a background in IT and experience within the legal and financial services sector, Melani diligently supports Ismail with the management and strategic direction of Paradise Isle Holidays. Her fascination for culture and passion for food from around the world means she is the perfect ambassador for travel, making her an excellent fit for Paradise Isle Holidays.

Our Holidays


Finding that perfect holiday often means spending endless hours trawling through the internet to find the best deal as well as co-ordinating your flights and hotel accommodation so that you don’t book one deal to find you’ve missed out on the other.

Opting for a package holiday is the easy option, but with most of them targeted at the mass market it is difficult to find one that caters to your specific interests and needs.

Working with trusted partners who are local experts in the hotel and travel industry, Paradise Isle Holidays can deliver your dream holiday.
