If the spa is your sort of thing, check to make sure it will be open before you go. See here for spas in Maldives being closed down because they are "anti-islamic"

Yeah, read that the other day. There seems to be some uncertainty if that will actually go into effect.

Of course you can buy up, it may just cost you big bucks negating the savings with the points.

The advantage here is that you can buy unlimited amounts of points on the cheap. Whereas other points can otherwise be hard/expensive to come by.
So may be cheaper then paying for it with cash but perhaps not the cheapest option (points wise) in Bora Bora.

Showing 50K when I search.
Really depends on what the buy-up is, as you'd have to be nuts to go all the way to BOB or MLE and not stay in an OWB.
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.

Yup, looks like it changed sometime early this morning.
Was still showing 30k at ~5am ET.

Its still not a bad deal (basically paying $300) if you are ambassador and use BOGO as they generally won't make you change.

Is there any reason I should not be considering going to one of these places over a Shabbas?

If you don't care about OWBs there are plenty of other options.

Langkawi is apparently really nice.
Eli was there, he may be able to help out.

There's tons of places to go.
You gotta decide what type of vacation you want or you'll be coming up with places for ages.

OWB sounds awesome for a honeymoon (or any time actually) and that kind of narrows down the options.
