I am in the airport in MLE waiting to check in for Turkish airlines.
I don't know if this was mentioned but there is a lounge here (new?) called "Wellness" right before you go into the international departure area. The good thing about them is that they are located land-side so you can use the lounge while you wait for your flights check in desk to open. It is a relatively small lounge but they have decent looking showers, drinks and a quiet room with reclining armchairs where you can ask them to dim the lights and take a nap.

Booked for 5 nights at St Regis in late December but have not had time yet to book flights yet! Not sure if I should take advantage of the Aeroplan 35% bonus... Any advice on whether I will need Aeroplan miles to fly from LAX- MLE with possible stop over destinations in either Thailand, Singapore, or any recommendations of what to make out of this trip? I have 3 weeks to spare and 5 days at the end of December are already taken.

Any advice at all welcome and yes I understand it was not the smartest move not organizing my trip much earlier...

Depends on how you view it  or how hard or easy it was to get the points, again I was there for 26K per night 6 nights  and it was worth EVERY point, what an amazing resort.

Any advice on my initial question in regards to the flights and points?

A Stop over in Singapore or Thailand or both is a wise thing to do if you were never there. Tiger Air has some very cheap fares from MLE to SIN, then from SIN to Thailand has very cheap fares too.
