How do you calculate zmanim here?
I can get myzmanim to show Male, but the park hyatt is further south and Long/lat doesn't seem to be working for myzmanim. Any thoughts?

The resorts have a special time zone, and are one hour ahead of Male.

I wonder if Myzmanim reflects that. I doubt it. The time I was able to find for Viligili which is close by was only slightly different form MLE.

If you can't find electronical help, you might be forced to do it the way it was done for the last few thousand years.

There are apps you can use on your phone that determine the zmanim based on your location

Ok I'll look for something similar for iOS but probably will just have to figure it out like Drago said.

Excited to be going either way ;D

Made it!
Since it's winter weather, the boat ride over caused one of the ladies to throw up since it was quite turbulent.
But it's a wonderful place to visit, and hopefully the weather will allow for water sports tomorrow.

No issue.
Sign at customs says that "materials contrary to Islam" (or s/t of the sort) can't be brought in.

However, if you bring a Koran, you can find the verses which talk highly of Jews (as dhimmis, but nonetheless), and show it to them in case they cause you issues.
