No base points at all?  We went to Ang Thong today and the kids loved it (but my youngest is 5) and I specifically charged to the room via the concierge hoping to get a boatload of points (regardless Iíll get 12ppd from Amex, although I know you paid with the Citi for 4th night free) but it would be Really nice to get an extra 30ppd if it earns like a room charge... :P

My guess is if its an official hotel thing youíll be fine. The hotel paid for my meals and I took out money from the hotel - that didnít appear on my folio with the points.

Not surprising.

Ok gotcha. I just made a nice donation online to Chabad KS because the I know they take a loss on these crazy cheap prices and the food is so good!  So did you order the meals from the ďConrad Kosher MenuĒ where Chabad and the hotel have marked the meals up to the $20-$30 range or they just let you do the cash advance thing for when you called in your orders directly to the restaurant?

Donít use the hotels menu. Iím sure the hotel gets a cut. Thereís a menu in the chabad for takeout/delivery that are reg prices and theyíll charge you 1000 baht for delivery.

CKS has a shuttle in to town 3 times a day and they can make a pickup from Chabad for free.

I think it would but I wouldnít want to bother them by  doing it again for dinner. I had them bring our Dimond breakfast at 12ish and dinner arrived around 6

I have the kitchen manager contact info, you can whatsapp him with your order, and he will make sure the hotels shuttle  takes it along with the breakfast that they come pick up from chabad
