Promo nights are still officially non-transferrable.  And will be incredibly awkward in MLE.

You won't get bumped to OWB unless you're DIA, and even then you may not  (I'm gonna take the risk as I am DIA).  So, yes, if you're prepared to pay to upgrade to OWB...

Otherwise other resorts sometimes have better cash rates.

Yes, is it easy or affordable to access?

On their site, they say that they cannot upgrade Diamond or gold members due to the nature of the property. Not saying it would be impossible, but very unlikely. One should be prepared to pay for an OWB. If the place is empty and they have tons of open OWB's, then maybe they would accommodate you.

Agreed. Which is why i didn't discount it completely. Though it probably is a lot harder to get an upgrade here than other properties.

Though i hope i am proved wrong when i go.

Menu from Klein's... Prices are in AUD

http://imgur.com/gallery/Vfwj90E/

From hotel

The total cost would include the prices as listed in the Menu plus the below listed cost:

 ·         Freight Charges from Australia

·         Custom Clearance in Male

·         Transportation cost from Male to Hadahaa

·         Applicable taxes on the Island

 

Shipping – Depends on the quantity of the food. Generally shipping charges are 40% of the value but, again we would only be able to give correct amount once the order has been confirmed of selected items.

Same is for custom clearance.

 For any of the above food order, We require a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice.

Dear ........
 
Greetings from Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.
 
Please be advised the Seaplane timings are scheduled by the Seaplane Company based on international flight arrivals and departures and we will get the schedule one day prior to arrival. The number of flights depends on the number of guests coming to/from Conrad Maldives on any given day.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
 
Kind Regards,
