So I did my little calculation:

Halaveli 7 nights (based on my current 5 nights quote for May):
= $3,800/5 * 7 = $5,320 (including seaplane transfer)

Taj 7 nights (based on the buy 5 get 7 nights):
= $839 x 5 + 10% = $4,615 (including speedboat transfer)

and btw if you look at the jetsetter page for the Taj it says: "Private sun decks in all villas (plunge pools in some)"

I wouldn't be too worried about planes. The ocean is noisy enough as it is to drown it out :)
And more TR people would have lowered their ratings if it was a big deal.
But if you don't have 7 days that's another story.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Trust me, I know  ::)
But I need to keep in mind that I have 2 kids waiting for their parents to come back home...
A 4 & 1 yr old can take care of themselves for 5 days only up to a certain point... I think... :)

Highly rated property it seems, and they seem to have jetskis, too.

That said, for the price they want, you can go to Halaveli.

(Though the xfer is cheaper here.)

ETA: no complementary wifi in the rooms?  :o

For those roughing it in a non-OWB
http://www.jetsetter.com/hotels/maldives/maldives/227/soneva-fushi?nm=splash&ca=featured&cl=3&rid=1
$559 in a non OWB doesn't seem like a deal to me. Am I missing something?
