if you can get in a 3pm why not spend an extra day in the resort?
Extra 600 bucks or so.
On top of the 4 nights I'm already staying...

Have not stayed there, but it's very highly rated.

From you post, I can't make out what your EK options are.

But DXB > MLE.
The EK options are 11am out of jfk in suites and either go directly to mle which means I get there 3pm the day before my preferred arrival
Or spend the day in dxb and get to mle Friday AM

Or take the 10pm EK flight F thru mxp and get to mle Friday AM

Option 3.

Stay here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g298571-d3204127-Reviews-Hotel_Octave-Male.html
Have you stayed there?
I'm just a little nervous.. I dont mean to sound like rots :)
Do they pick you up and bring you back? This way I don't have to stumble down the wrong streets? (my beard can go two ways in that country)

If I'm doing this option I'm considering now doing EK F as I see it has opened and Alaskan is back up with 90k +$18 and I'd arrive 3pm.
 
The only issue doing it this way is if I don't tour male I'll be stuck in that hotel till the next day.
So if I wanted EK am I better off hanging out in dxb for the day or taking the EK F thru mxp (no suites) this way I'll arrive friday am

I'd like some input on the three routing options I'm looking at.
Kinda urgent as its for this week

I need to arrive in MLE on Friday morning.

Itinerary #1 - flying time 23 hrs. Total duration 37.5 hr
55k AA + $217  or 67.5k aa +no additional
JFK-HKG on CX J
(1:50 hr layover)
HKG-BKK  on CX economy
(6 hr layover )
BKK-CMB on CX J
(7 hour night layover - hotel in airport.)
CMB-MLE on UL economy.

Itinerary #2 - flying time 28 hr, total duration 34.5 hr
Should be 67.5k
JFK-HKG on CX J
(4:30 hr layover)
HKG-DOH on CX J
(2:30 hr layover)
DOH-MLE on QR J

Itinerary #3 -  flying time 22.5 hr, total duration  26 hr
55k or 67.5k (I'm not sure)
JFK-HKG on CX J
(3.5 hr layover)
HKG-MLE on CX J

This option arrives Thursday night which means we'll need to take a hotel in the Male  area - not to excited about that because of recent situations.

First time opening this thread and way too much going on.

trying to figure out a trip soon ,
i found some good availability from NY 80k UA biz to MLE and i found SQ suites return**(see debate #3)

the trip would be Thailand, Australia, and either MLE, or Fiji. (maybe bali)

for MLE I have 2 free nights with hyatt but they only giving me the standard villa.

Debate:
1. does it make sense to stay for shabbos there?
2. should i take the standard villa as i have it for free and then one night on OWB paid ? or better not go
3. Should i give up MLE , and go to fiji / Bali instead, but in this case i would not have SQ suite return .

Any input would be appreciated

also, any good deals for hotels out there?

I'm planning a trip here and for next month and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this

So far I have
NYC-bkk (spend one day there)
Bkk-usm (about 3 days)

From usm I'd like to go to Melbourne and Sydney . The thing I'm trying to figure out is if I should stop by Bali on way there or skip it and go to Fiji from Aussie.

Also how long do u recommend being in Mel and Sydney

For Fiji I found a nice groupon deal 999 includes flights from Aussie and 4-5 nights in 5 star hotel

Thoughts?

If you look you may not be able to leave (take that however you want.)

I won't be able to make it tonight.
