OUR FOUNDER

When our founder Mr. Dharmaraj Ashar discovered the Maldives for the first time in 1989, he was captivated by its beauty. Over the years, the fascination grew. Mr Ashar would help his friends and family visit the Maldives and other beaches around the world.

But that wasn’t enough, he wanted everyone to experience paradise. In 2007, he founded Make Plans Holidays. Further fueling his obsession for the beach life. And since then, he’s found himself drawn to the Maldives over 80 times. The resorts welcome him like family and the islands like an old friend, reveal new secrets to him every time. Secrets he can’t wait to share with you.
