Planning on staying at the Conrad and have a departing flight out of MLE at 9:10 AM.
From the Conrad's website: Guests on international flights departing before 09:00 will transfer the previous afternoon and require overnight accommodation in Malé. Any ideas if there is a way around this? where to stay as close as possible to the airport?
doesnt sound like the rule apply to you

Contact the hotel and ask when's the earliest seaplane.
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.

+1 basically seaplanes don't fly at night so if the sun's up by 6 or 7 you'all be fine.

I would not be surprised if there was a 7am seaplane... they often anchor the planes overnight...

Search each leg separately on BA and they will also show how many seats are available for each leg. If you are planning to pay with AS anyway it's worth calling them because they were super helpful to me and found things I couldn't see (maybe they have F seats out of BOS, SFO or LAX)....

BA shows the HKG leg for CX. But they don't show a non-stop from HKG to MLE. They only show an overnight through CMB.

Might be because that flight isn't daily, only a few times a week...maybe Sunday, Wed., Friday?
